2023 Winter Jewellery Inspiration

Winter Jewellery Trends 2023

When it comes to winter styling, the focus is always on cosy sweaters, puffer jackets, snow boots, and base layers to keep you toasty warm. Jewellery isn't really a priority. Who's going to see it under all those layers?

While cute jewellery might not save you from the cold snap, it will keep your outfits looking interesting - despite all the layers you have to wear! Even if you're wearing an oversized jumper and thermal leggings, a pendant necklace, classic hoops, or set of stacking rings can make all the difference to how you look and how you feel.

The leading jewellery trends for winter 2023 are dramatic with a focus on individuality. It's just as much about how you wear these jewellery pieces as it is the pieces you pick. Exaggerated designs with asymmetric styles give you free reign to wear them however you want. Vibrant colours and clashing metals will help maximise their impact too.

These are our top jewellery style picks from the winter 2022-2023 fashion trend reports, with an edit of the best on-trend pieces to shop.

Winter Jewellery Trends 2023

Gems, Crystals, and Birthstones

Personalised jewellery has always been a classic. It's a thoughtful gift with a lot of meaning, and the ideal gift for any occasion. Traditionally, personalised jewellery often means initial pendants or engraved pieces. It's a little outdated, and we have a better alternative.

This season there has been a resurgence of birthstone jewellery, and it's a great way to personalise your jewellery collection. Even though they're on trend right now, natural stones are timeless. These colourful statement pieces look great layered with more minimal jewellery to really maximise their impact.

Heart Jewellery

The classic heart shape is both timeless yet playful. This cute symbol of love adds a romantic touch to any outfit with its simple design and feel-good style. Trust us, you can wear these heart jewellery pieces all year round - they're not just for Valentine's Day!

For versatility that will outlast Valentine's Day, avoid statement pieces that are hard to style and will fall out of trend. Instead, opt for minimal heart designs that can be mix and matched with existing jewellery pieces. Like this cute heart ring that makes any outfit swoon-worthy.

Oversized Earrings

When it comes to earrings, this season is all about big, bold statement jewellery. Think: big hoops, shoulder-skimming threaders, and chandelier earrings. Instead of being reserved for special occasions and dinner dates, the time has come to wear these bold earrings everywhere.

Asymmetry is in style this season so don't be afraid to mix and match earrings. When it comes to styling this trend, there are a couple of options to try. In one ear, wear a statement earring with more minimal pieces in the other. For a bolder look, wear two different statement earrings in either ear. Just make sure you wear the same metal.

Stacked Rings

Large rings are popular this season, especially when it comes to unique and unusual cocktail rings. They add a 'wow' factor to any outfit, catching the eye and causing a scene. The finger you wear them on is key to styling with the signet and pinky fingers being the focus.

If chunky oversized accessories aren't your thing, try stacking rings instead. They're easy to style, go with everything, and can be paired down or stacked up depending on the mood. Mix chunky bands in with textured rings and geometric shapes. Our favourite combinations include the chevron ring paired with the spinner fidget ring or circle ring. Plus a braided or beaded ring on the pinky.

Pendant Necklaces

Although layering dainty necklaces will never fall out of fashion, this season is all about statement pendant necklaces. The best pendants to wear for winter 2023 is the Etched Medallion Necklace and the Vertical Bar Necklace, or any large infinity necklace.

Statement pendants are easy to style, which makes them fun to wear. Although we do have one top tip when styling these necklaces. Make sure to pair pendant necklaces with a plunging neckline or a super high one. Avoid collared shirts and scoop necks. This will ensure the pendant will really standout.
