Fashion is forever changing, giving us the chance to explore different avenues of our unique style and allowing us the opportunity to leap out of our comfort zones and try something new. 

So what boundaries will you be pushing in 2022? Well, we’ve kept a close eye on what fine jewelry designs are growing in popularity and what to watch out for this year! From contemporary takes on classic styles to some beloved trends that are making a comeback, we’re going to show you what’s in and how to rock these jewels right.  

Get ready to explore all-new designs in stacking and layering necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. We’re highlighting the end of minimalist style and saying a happy hello to fine jewelry pieces that go together to create the most amazing impressions of your individual style.

Trend 01: Layering Necklaces & Pendants

In 2022, layering your favorite necklaces and pendants is more about adding different styles, metal colors, and a mix of diamonds and gemstones than it is about adding varying chain lengths.

This trend is also about making your look more personalized. Take your favorite medallion, pendant, or themed necklace, and layer it with other items like solid gold chains to complement your main piece. Take your go-to diamond shape and dare to play around with different diamond cuts this year.

Elongated diamond shapes like oval and marquise appear to be the ones to look out for in 2022, and rightly so, they simply look good on everyone.

Style tip: Pairing a diamond or gemstone pendant with a thin gold chain, along with a clustered necklace or simple medallion is one way to achieve a layered look with colorful and textured dimensions.

Trend 02: Sleek Gold Bracelets

Whether you like yellow gold or not, this traditional metal is here and ready to make your 2022 fine jewelry experience extra golden. Sometimes life can get a little hectic, and keeping your style fresh and playful requires those easy-to-slip-on jewelry pieces. Our recommendation: more is more with a yellow gold layered wrist. 

Choose from a variety of uniquely designed cuffs, paperclips, chains, and tennis bracelets, and pile up your wrist to your heart’s content. Stacked bracelets aren’t for everyone, so take the time to work out where your limits are and which bracelets work best for your comfortability. 

Not loving yellow gold on its own? Don’t be afraid to mix and match your other metals with your chosen yellow gold pieces. Adding different metal colors is a great way to brighten up your look and showcase your unique style.

Style Tip: Combine multiple cuff bracelets with a gemstone tennis bracelet or dainty diamond bracelet on one hand. Balance out the look with a tennis bracelet or unity bracelet on the other hand.

Trend 03: Hoops & Earring Stacks

This one is a definite favorite. Whether you’ve got multiple piercings on each ear or single piercings, we’ve got two fun ways to get this year’s ideal stacked ear look. 

If you’re one of the former, play around with drop earrings or some bold hoops and place them in your lowest piercing. From there, you can get creative and either move up the ear with some cute huggie hoops or studs– remember to play around with different sizes and shapes. 

For those of you with single piercings, you can start with hoops or drop earrings and then move up the ear with single cuffs and crawlers.

Style Tip: Put pavé or plain metal hoops in your lowest piercing, followed by diamond or gemstone studs in your second piercing. Stack single or even triple cuffs higher up the ear to complete the layered look.

Trend 04: Stackable Rings 

Stacking rings is one trend we see flowing with ease from one year to the next. The exciting part is seeing all the new ring styles, of course. In 2022 we’ve seen chic signet rings grow in popularity and we can see why. These stackable rings aren’t only bold and fun but they’re made to be personal. 

From zodiac signs to customized initials and personal motifs, getting your hands on your very own signet ring is one trend you’ll want to hop on, and soon!

Eternity or infinity bands are also making the rounds this year as a fine jewelry favorite, and why not? Who doesn’t love to shine from every angle? Last but not least, don’t forget to add one or two gemstone rings to your collection for those looks that need just a pop of color. 

With stacked rings, there are two ways to go about the trend. First, you can choose to stack a single finger with different plain metal bands or other rings of your choice. This works particularly well if you want to add a little more sparkle to your engagement ring

Or, you could achieve that stacked look by taking your favorite ring styles and wearing one on every other finger. We suggest wearing your chunkier rings on one hand and having your more dainty rings on the other to create that ideal balance.

Style Tip: Start with a signet ring on one hand and balance it out with several plain metals or eternity rings on the other. For a single stacked finger, start with a birthstone ring and pair it with plain metal bands or dainty gold rings with diamond accents.

The Super Sparkles Of LVI

Super Bowl rings are known for their opulent use of diamonds and gemstones. The rings feature the winning team’s name, the year, and the Super Bowl number. This year’s game featured the Cincinnati Bengals meeting the Los Angeles Rams. The Bengals have not won a Super Bowl in years and the Rams have never won one in their new hometown (they won once in 2000 when they were the St. Louis Rams)….both teams were looking to make history and rock that championship bling.

The Super Sparkles Of LVI 

All That Glitters…

Upsetting a division champion, breaking a multi-game losing streak, the Bengals and Rams were an unlikely pairing for Super Bowl LVI. Leaving us only our imaginations to guess how much and what bling will be used for the championship ring.

The NFL contributes between $5,000 to $7,000 per ring, but the average ring costs six to ten times that amount. The winning team covers the remaining costs and it is yet unknown how much the winners will spend, and thus, how many diamonds and gemstones will be used.

All Super Bowl rings have diamonds and gems, but which gems are anyone’s guess. Some teams stick to diamonds only, while most have gemstones reflecting their team’s colors. The blue and yellow of the Rams, and the orange, black, and white of the Bengals are reflected in blue sapphires, yellow citrine, and of course diamonds.

This Bling Is Brought To You By…..

The Super Bowl is a contest to see who is the best of the best! A dream of then-Green Bay Packers Head Coach Vince Lombardi, the big game is a contest between the division champions of the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC).

Since its inception, the majority of Super Bowl rings have been designed by Jostens, but Tiffany & Co. (who also designs the Super Bowl’s Vince Lombardi trophy), as well as Balfour have also gotten in on the game. Check out this piece inspired by the infamous Lombardi trophy:

What this year’s Championship ring will look like is still unknown. Ring design can only start now that there is a champion. Though we know from past rings that they will certainly be blindingly bling-tastic, filled with diamonds and gemstones. See the spectacular sparkles of past rings here.

Whereas merchandise was printed for both teams, with the losing team’s merch finding itself in donation bins, the ring is a different matter. Superstition abounds and only now that there is a winner will design get input from the winning team. 

Design and production will take about three months, after which the rings are presented in a private ceremony. Platinum is sometimes used, but gold is normally the metal of choice for this championship glitz. The number of diamonds and gemstones used is determined in the design, but it is safe to say the shine is so bright, you might need shades when looking at it.

Everyone Wants To Be Champion

All the work, the training, the games, injuries, and recovery, are all part of the emotional rollercoaster that is football. The journey to finally receiving a Super Bowl ring is a long and winding road and anything less than victory, can simply feel like heartbreak.

Owning a genuine Super Bowl ring is highly sought after, and not just by the champions. For example, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft gifted one of his Super Bowl rings, either accidentally or purposefully, depending on whose story you believe, to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But the ring and the game are not the only stars of the Super Bowl. The halftime show is just as much a part of the experience. This year’s show featured artists Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dog, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Kendrick Lamar.

Blige, Dre, Snoop, Eminem, and Lamar brought their powerhouse vocals, smooth rhymes, and commanding performances, marked by their unique styles.

Mary is frequently seen sporting classic gold hoops.  Get your own pair and feel as powerful as this music icon:

Super Proposals

Receiving the ring that marks the ultimate achievement in football is a moment that cannot be matched. Yet a few athletes, and even fans, have tried. Quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes, took this incredible moment of professional performance and added a moment of personal bliss. The day he got his Super Bowl ring, he also gave a precious ring. 

Following the ceremony where the Chiefs received their rings, Mahomes surprised his long-time girlfriend with a ring of her own, proposing in an opulent surprise ceremony. She of course said yes!

Also entering the romantic Super Bowl proposal arena was linebacker for the New York Giants Greg Jones.  After beating the Patriots, Jones proposed to his college sweetheart, but Jones couldn’t wait for the ring ceremony.

During the joyful chaos of the on field celebrations, he got down on one knee and proposed, bringing his longtime girlfriend Many Piechowski to tears. Check out this ring that will bring your partner to (happy) tears too!
