7 Jewelry Investments That Will Never (Ever!) Go Out of Style

I love jewelry, but that doesn’t mean I buy it often. In fact, while I routinely wear anywhere from eight to 15 pieces at a time, my collection of rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings has grown slowly and taken a lot of patience. After all, while jewelry comes at all sorts of price points, it still feels like an investment—as it should. Personally, unless I’m buying something extremely trendy and affordable, I expect that a piece will last me years and that I’ll rarely be compelled to take it off.

So what makes jewelry investment-worthy? Timelessness. This may sound contradictory, but I’m here to inform you that a lot of jewelry trends actually are forever. Take pearls, for example, which tend to rise and fall in popularity. They’ve had a major resurgence over the past few seasons, but even if you temporarily retire your recently acquired pieces, we guarantee you’ll eventually want to take them out of your jewelry box again. Luckily there are quite a few jewelry trends in the same boat, and I’ve rounded them up for you here today. Just keep scrolling to see and shop them all…

Hoop Earrings

Tell someone that hoops are in right now and there’s a good chance they’ll tell you that they were never out to begin with. That’s the sign of something truly classic.

Chain Necklaces 

Chunky chain necklaces are currently dominating my Instagram feed, and while I’d usually shy away from spending on an internet-inspired jewelry trend, this is one that will always come back around.

Gold Watches

I’ve always admired the look of a gold bracelet watch, but more recently, I’ve come to really appreciate their role in making any outfit feel inexplicably more powerful, whether it’s by the beach or for brunch.

Signet Rings

Even if you purchase a brand-new one, my favorite thing about signet rings is that they just look like heirlooms, making them feel all the more timeless.

Tennis Bracelets

Whether you spend $100 or thousands, I can feel confident guaranteeing that you’ll never regret investing in a tennis bracelet.


As I mentioned before, pearls are having a major moment right now, but their current trend status can’t take away from their timeless nature.

Pendant Necklaces

Perfect for wearing alone or layering, the pendant necklace is that little touch that makes any outfit instantly better.
