Jewelry Trends 2023: Inspiration for Every Season

Every year, clothing styles change with each season. The same is true for the accessories that complement them. You’re used to switching out your shoes, belts, and handbags with each season, so why not do the same with your jewelry?

Spring Jewelry Trends 2023

There’s nothing like that first feeling of spring in the air — even the chirping birds among the blooming flowers seem filled with excitement! Your jewelry can reflect this positivity and feel-good emotion as well. Check out these spring jewelry trends!  

Pastel Beads

A pastel color palette is often a popular choice for jewelry worn during the season. Pastel necklaces and bracelets convey a fun, playful style that can enhance any spring outfit. Pieces featuring pastels and gold glitter also perfectly complement the latest jewelry trend of incorporating pops of color into your look. Adding fun and quirky charms to these pieces can have special meaning for both the wearer and the giver.

Floral Motifs

Floral motifs are also a major spring trend. Necklaces with oversized flowers have become a popular addition to many spring wardrobes. Prefer a more classic look? A necklace with floral-shaped beads can be a beautiful, more understated look. Pair it with a matching bracelet to complete your look.  

Layered Beaded Necklaces

Another fashionable spring trend involves the layering of beaded necklaces. This trend works well with a few single necklaces or a ready-to-wear layered piece. Mix and match colors or choose two or three complementary hues. Both work well with lightweight spring outfits! 

Boho-Chic Color Palettes

Any jewelry trend list wouldn’t be complete without the honorary mention of a boho-chic theme. Handmade jewelry trends incorporate the warm colors associated with this palette, like this charming Cherish necklace. Boho vibes include a variety of warm colors like browns, yellows, grays, reds, greens, and blues. While these are very distinct from delicate pastels, they can enrich your spring jewelry collection with a touch of sophistication and variety. 

Summer Jewelry Trends 2023

When summer finally arrives, it's time to embrace the vibrant and carefree spirit of the season through your choice of jewelry. Here are some of the hottest summer jewelry trends of the year, from beachy boho styles to dazzling accessories that will add a touch of sunshine to your look.

Beach-Inspired Designs

Corals, shells, and glass are a few of the materials that have inspired the look and textures of the latest summer jewelry. From sea shell charms to sea creatures, these elements come to life when paired with the colors of the sand and ocean. Together, they create beautiful beach-inspired pieces that will spruce up your summer looks! 

Bright Color Palettes

Summer often evokes feelings of freedom, joy, and happiness. Brightly colored jewelry can help convey these feelings. Handmade beaded bracelets with an array of vibrant colors can make your summer outfit stand out, boost your confidence, and add a little flair to those warm, sunny days.  

Summer Charms

What’s one way to conjure a summer vibe? With summer charms that reflect the season. These can range from turtles, dolphins, and seahorses to smiley faces, coral beads, or flip-flops. No matter what makes you happy, find bracelets with charms that bring you joy. Summer is the perfect time to get creative with your jewelry choices, so start experimenting! 

Statement Pieces

If you love the casual vibe of summer but still want to stand out, a summer statement piece may be what you need. What's one of the many statement necklaces for 2023? Layers of chunky beads that span catch the eye. You can also layer beaded bracelets for a chic yet bold look. 

Fall Jewelry Trends 2023

As the leaves begin to change and a crisp breeze fills the air, it's time to embrace the warmth and charm of fall jewelry trends. From cozy and earthy designs to bold and glamorous pieces, these trends will elevate your autumn wardrobe.

Earthy Tones 

Orange, red, yellow, brown, and all their intermediate hues. This palette inspires stunning fall jewelry pieces. Whether you prefer large, chunky beads or more understated looks, earthy tones can add the finishing touch to a mock turtleneck, cardigan, or sweater.

Wooden Beads

The traditional dark tones of wooden beads blend well with any fall wardrobe. However, you can add a splash of color to an earthy ensemble. Opt for brightly colored wooden beads on your necklace or bracelet for a bolder, more eye-catching look! 

Two-Tone Accents

Two-tone accents on bracelets and necklaces add interesting touches to handmade jewelry selections. They can incorporate geometric shapes, braided designs, or beautiful prints, like this blue and green chunky bracelet. These create multiple textures and a harmonious color scheme that add a unique flair to traditional fall colors.

Fall Foliage Color Palette

Your fall wardrobe may reflect more subdued, earthy tones, but your jewelry doesn’t have to. Let the colors of the autumn leaves inspire your jewelry color palette. This can include reds, yellows, oranges, and greens. This Pledge necklace is a great example, featuring a dark base with deep reds that imitate the falling leaves. It’s a great way to add pops of color to a neutral-colored outfit. 

Winter Jewelry Trends 2023

Winter is the season of festive gatherings, sparkling lights, and a touch of magic in the air — but you don’t have to wait for Christmas to buy yourself new jewelry. You can don the new trends in bracelets, necklaces, and more all season long.

Cozy Jewel Tones

Winter palettes often include cool jewel tones. Emerald green, ruby red, and sapphire blue are popular choices that complement almost any outfit. Take this December bracelet for example, complete with red and green beads that reflect the season. It’s not surprising that these precious gems inspire many popular handmade jewelry trends — they’re classic pieces that are beautiful additions to any collection.

Winter Wonderland Motifs

It’s that time of year again when you can finally wear those cute Winter Wonderland pieces! What better way to celebrate Christmas? These are fun and festive pieces that can be classy or playful based on the look you’re trying to evoke. Beautiful pieces like the Frost bracelet are certain to get you and those around you in the Christmas spirit.

Metallic Beads and Accents

Metallic beads and accents have become a new trend in bracelets year-round, but they’re even more popular as winter accessories. We love this Precious necklace with a subtle beaded base and an eye-catching gold heart pendant. These eye-catching beads can be reminiscent of the sparkly ornaments so lovingly hung on many trees. Why not bring that festive spirit to your jewelry collection as well? 

Festive Pieces

Adding festive pieces to your jewelry collection can enhance the merriment of Christmas. These can depict traditional Christmas symbols or include the classic colors associated with the season. The use of red, green, white, silver, and gold beads is the latest bracelet trend for the winter season — so let’s get in the spirit!
