The Most Popular Necklace Trends of 2022 | CHURINGA BIRTHSTONE JEWELRY

Some of our favorite jewelry trends for this year come in the form of necklaces. One of the most significant overall trends we are continuing to see this year is necklace layering. Chain necklaces are another enduring trend that shows no sign of slowing, with more chain styles gaining popularity, from chunkier chains to thinner, flat chains. The most popular necklace styles for 2022 are suitable for any season and will seamlessly transition from spring through winter. 

1.) Diamond Collars and Chokers

Eveningwear was all over the spring runways, signaling a return to formal parties and events in 2022. Diamond collars and chokers offer easy elegance and unexpected versatility, effortlessly transitioning from dressy to casual with a surprising air of everyday wearability. While a dazzling diamond necklace is an obvious complement to a formal gown, it can look equally stunning when paired with a crisp white shirt and denim jeans.

Chain necklaces continue to be the “it” accessory for 2022. Both paperclip chains and their chunkier counterparts offer endless versatility and wearability as they are ideal for layering with other necklaces or wearing alone.

10.) Flat Yellow Gold Chains

A close relative of the ever-popular paperclip chain, a flat gold chain is the quintessential everyday piece. These lightweight, flexible chains are as comfortable to wear as they are stylish. These minimalist chains also drape beautifully across the collarbone and provide an outfit with high shine and wonderful texture.
