5 Outdated Jewelry Trends—and What We're Wearing Instead

At Ring Concierge, we stay ahead of the trends. In addition to as always offering the classics so you can build out your forever jewelry box, we work to curate a covetable collection of the next big thing before it saturates the market. And just as we always stay on top of what's in, we also pay attention to what trends are on their way out. We believe that it's always wise to invest heavily in the classics and then accent with trend-forward pieces with each season, choosing ones you truly love. If you've made the mistake of simply chasing fleeting trends in the past, you may have accumulated some styles that no longer serve your wardrobe. Below are five outdated jewelry trends—and the styles and pieces we're wearing instead.

Keep scrolling to see what we've edited out of our jewelry wardrobe and shop the on-trend pieces we're into right now.

Out: '90s chokers
In: Gold chain chokers

The '90s-choker look stuck around for a while after it made its big comeback a few years ago, but now women have moved on to a more refined and elevated choker look. Delicate chain chokers are the look du jour, worn solo or layered with your favorite dainty necklace lineup.

Out: Large cuff bracelets
In: Stackable bangles

Oversize cuffs have stepped aside in favor of a generous stack of bangles. Just as layering is super on trend in the necklace department, having a strong wrist stack is also in style. These chic gold and diamond bangles transition effortlessly from day to night.

Out: Bib necklaces
In: Dainty layered necklaces

Quite the opposite of overdone bib necklaces, the necklaces we're loving now are delicate and look best layered. Make your jewelry styling appear lived-in and effortless with a layer of different necklace styles. Double-layer necklaces are an easy way to work this look with one single piece.

Out: Boho jewelry
In: Glam gold and diamonds

While minimalism is still as popular as ever, maximalism is also back. Instead of showy boho pieces, the statement jewelry of today go for glam. herringbone necklaces, gemstone-encrusted panthers, and chunky rings are just a handful of the glam gold-and-diamond looks we're very into these days.
