I've Been Waiting on the Next Big Jewelry Trend, and This Is It

There have been several defining jewelry trends of note recently. Among them are the '90s-inspired chokers that returned for spring in the midst of the grunge resurgence this year and the colorful, nostalgic jewelry that was huge in 2021. So what is on the menu for fall? It turns out we're seeing one of the biggest accessory trends in recent memory with the emergence of beaded jewelry.

Spotted in the collections of insider favorites such as Sophie Buhai, Bagatiba, and Timeless Pearly, beaded jewelry is on the rise and already a key buy among the street style set. Choker necklaces are the perfect complement to an exposed décolleté, whether styled with a sleek tube dress or tucked under a blazer. Bracelets have proven to be the new favorite stackable piece, including Ananya's stone bracelets that topped Threads Styling's list of recommended jewelry buys. Ahead, shop the beaded-jewelry trend that is set to take over.
