5 Jewelry Trends I Hardly Ever Wear Anymore (and 5 I've Been Favoring Instead)

I don't like to switch up my jewelry very often (I can go months and even years wearing the same exact pieces every day), so it’s pretty telling when I do decide to either adopt a new item, retire a trend, or do both at the same time. Spoiler alert: Such is the case with the 10 categories you’re about to see below. Five are ones I realized I hardly wear anymore, while the other five have managed to sneak into my day-to-day outfits more often than not. While none are that out-there to begin with (since I do have admittedly simple style), these little changes have made me feel just a bit more, well, current. To see which ones I’m putting on the back burner and shop what’s in my rotation instead, simply keep scrolling.

Hardly Wear: Thin Layered Necklaces
Instead Wear: Statement Chains

While I haven’t totally retired my (extensive) collection of layering necklaces just yet, I’ve definitely found myself opting for a chunky chain or two more often these days.  

I'll probably be singing a different tune come summer, but for now, my shell necklaces, earrings, and bracelets aren't getting much action, while my pearl pieces somehow still feel as fresh as ever.

Hardly Wear: Cuff Bracelets
Instead Wear: Delicate Bracelets

At this point, I don’t think I even own any big cuff bracelets anymore, which is a good thing because the only bracelet styles I’m interested in at the moment are delicate. Think thin chains, tennis bracelets, charm bracelets, and more.

Hardly Wear: Stacking Rings
Instead Wear: Chunky Gold Rings

I always found stacking rings a bit difficult and uncomfortable, so it’s convenient that for the time being, I’m more into bigger, single rings anyway. Whether it's just one or one on each finger, the look is all over my feed right now and, as a result, very much on my mind.

Colorful jewelry is another trend I definitely won’t be getting rid of, but it’s definitely on the back burner for now. Instead, as seen above, I’m opting for metals (mainly gold and silver) and neutrals, such as pearls.
