All That Glitters: Silver Jewelry in the Spotlight
Silver jewelry will always be a timeless staple. It is sometimes overlooked in favor of gold tones, but 2023 has proven that silver jewelry will always hold a special place in our hearts—and our jewelry boxes.
This metal continues to shine in the spotlight, from silver rings to necklaces and beyond. While white and yellow gold may have dominated in previous years, designers are now focusing on the allure of polished and ethereal silver pieces.
Why Silver Jewelry is Trending
The Spring/Summer 2023 and Fall/Winter 2023 runways confirmed that silver is the metal of the year—and the metal to wear for the upcoming months. From Chanel to Tony Burch and Veronica Beard, many iconic brands embraced silver on the runways. Some of the most striking pieces included oversized silver hoop earrings, chunky silver chains, and extra-long drop earrings.
“Silver’s increased popularity is being driven by a desire to wear more subtle jewelry pieces that work for everyday styling,” explains Ananya Malhotra, creative director of Ananya.
This precious metal is an excellent choice as it remains nonchalant and timeless at the same time. You can pair silver jewelry with almost any look, and it’s easy to style.
How to Wear Silver Jewelry
Here are some tips for wearing silver jewelry, and the best ways to style it.
- Mix and Match: Mixing metals can add depth to your overall look. Silver pairs well with other metals like gold or rose gold, so see what works for you.
- Layer and Stack: Experiment with layering necklaces and stacking rings. You could even try layering with different gemstones to add a pop color to your outfit.
- Stick to One Statement Piece: You do not have to layer, stack, or mix and match for silver jewelry to look good. Take inspiration from the runway by choosing one statement piece. It could be oversized earrings or a chunky chain necklace.
