I'm Bored of Gold Jewelry—Here Are the 25 Silver Pieces I'm Shopping Instead

best silver jewelry



It seems as though everywhere you turn, people are shining head to toe in gold jewelry. It's a classic look, and I get it, but I want something more for myself. I'm blonde, so I already have gold-adjacent hair. When I put on jewelry, I want it to really stand out and express my identity, which is pretty unconventional. I love that silver jewelry always adds a little edge to my look—it can tone down a nice dress or spice up a simple jeans-and-cardigan outfit.

Whether you're also bored with gold jewelry or just want to add something unexpected to your next outfit, I've shopped out the best silver jewelry pieces so you don't have to. You'll find dainty, elegant styles, but also ones that may make you feel edgier than you actually are. And who doesn't want that from time to time?

Step aside, thin hoops the size of my palm. I'm all about this chunky style. 

Another piece that toes the line between industrial and "cute." I love the delicate rope detailing on this ring.

The pink tassel adds such a cute touch to this otherwise masculine chunky chain.

What if I told you that you can adjust the spheres to create the exact necklace you want? I love the look of them clustered together, but I'd also space them apart for a dotted look.

I love how this chain looks delicate but still references a punk-industrial look. Don't forget to pair it with Mejuri's sphere studs.

A simple bangle can be paired with other bracelets or stand on its own. There's no wrong way to wear one.

Available in 3mm- or 4mm-sized beads, and honestly, I'm buying both to stack with the Madewell bangle above.

This pendant would look cute atop a fuzzy sweater or white tee.

I don't know about you, but this ring makes me think of Old English crowns. I like the gothic touch.

These interlocking mixed-size circles are so simple and cute.

These thick oval hoops have such a cool sturdy, geometric look. I love how tightly they hug your earlobe—it is in the name, after all.

Chainlinks and hinge closures are all I want in a necklace.

Everything about this ring is perfect: the dog tag, the chainlink, the interspersed solid, and rigged motifs. I'm obsessed.

I love this industrial-looking wind-chime inspired earring so much, I might even buy two to wear them as a pair. I feel even better about this purchase knowing I'm supporting a New York–based business.

I like how thin the band is, especially compared to the big pendant. A very cute and simple ring.

Simultaneously gothic and '60s flower-power. Gucci, how did you do it?

This edgy ear cuff is just the piece I want to layer on my ear when I can go to concerts again.

Snake chain has such an elegant look that I'd wear this bracelet on its own. The logo charm at the end of the chain-link clasp is a nice touch, too.

Mixing two chain styles in one bracelet adds the perfect amount of edge to my look, and that's without considering the symmetrical dangling tags.

Some skinny lines for when I need a break from all the chunky styles I'm currently copping.

Okay, I guess I'm not yet completely over larger hoops, but the thicker style and elaborate beading on this pair feel unique.

I can't get enough of Lagos's caviar motif. You already know I love a pendant ring. 

You know the three words that hook me: chunky silver chains.

Layer this necklace with one of the chunky chains above or wear it alone to let the small details really shine.
