Trends in Bridal Jewelry: What's Hot in 2023 and Beyond

If you are planning your wedding day for any time in the rest of this year or next, there are a variety of popular styles that you can choose from when it comes to your rings, as well as the other jewelry you wear on your big day.

Modern brides also like to incorporate their own individual style into their wedding day look, so keep that in mind as you decide which trends you want to take part in and which don't appeal to you. Hot off the press, here are the hottest 2023 bridal accessories for you to choose from.

Colorful Gemstones

Traditionally, white diamonds are always the classic choice for wedding jewelry. However, in 2023, more brides are veering away from traditional styles and opting for something that is more modern and unexpected. Not only do colored gemstones give you the chance to showcase your own style, but it's also one of the modern styles that will set you apart from other brides.

A nice way to add a personal touch while staying on trend is to wear jewelry containing your birthstone. You might even think about colored gemstones that match your wedding color scheme. This year, expect to see sapphires, emeralds and rubies finding a place in the spotlight. They'll add just the right touch of color to your bridal set and offer a playful look that moves away from the sense of formality that many modern brides are choosing to forgo this year. 

Unique Designs

Another hot accessory trend is that of choosing something radically different that is expected and worlds away from what other brides are wearing. Brides this year are choosing jewelry that makes personal statements that align with their personality and their unique love story.

This means you're likely to see a large variety of creative and different pieces to pair with the perfect wedding dress. You can also use this trend as an opportunity to custom order your wedding bands in a way that makes sense to you and in a style and design that you love. 

Modern jewelry design is extremely creative and there is a vast range of choices for brides to adorn their ears, wrists and neck.

Vintage is In

As the saying goes, "everything old is new again." This year, vintage-inspired bridal jewelry is trending in a big way. The geometric patterns of the Art Deco era are especially popular, as are pops of color in your bridal set. The romance of the Victorian era, as well as the intricacy and delicacy of the Edwardian era are other influences that you'll notice with wedding jewelry in 2023. These classic styles set the stage for your wedding gown and lend elegance and glamour to your bridal look. 

Be Environmentally Minded

Sustainability and ethical practices are hot topics in 2023 and aren't likely to go anywhere soon. With that in mind, many brides are choosing statement pieces that stand out as they walk down the aisle, but that are also environmentally friendly. Look for brands that are transparent with their sourcing methods and the way they produce their pieces. This ensures that they are eco-friendly, but also that the workers involved in creating the jewelry are being treated fairly and paid accordingly. 

Mix and Match

Gone are the days when brides would all adhere to the same fashion rules on their wedding day. Now they are forgoing the popular choice and incorporating their favorite styles into one look for their big day. That means you can choose mixed metals, the combination of chunky jewelry with more delicate pieces, or a variety of colored stones to create a look that's all their own. The new rule in 2023 appears to be - there are no rules. Your special moment is yours, so wear whatever jewelry makes it feel special to you. 

Minimal, Yet Elegant

On the other hand, some brides are choosing to skip the idea that they have to be dripping in diamonds just because they are getting married. Others are choosing sleek and simple pieces with modern designs that make an impact without being over the top. That includes chain necklaces, stone rings, bangles and much more. Simple and understated is a hot trend that applies to all jewelry, allowing you to take center stage, instead of your jewelry. 

Collar Necklaces

This year, bridal gown trends lean toward strapless or off-the-shoulder, creating the perfect backdrop for a collar necklace. This allows you to mix the vintage trend with something a bit more contemporary. There are many options to choose from, whether you want one made from lace or one that is all diamonds. Wearing a collar necklace requires minimal effort, but makes a big statement. It's a piece of jewelry that will shine in your bridal photographs and create a look that's all your own. If you want the effect but not the bulk of a collar, a simple choker necklace works equally well.

Pearl Makes a Comeback

The popularity of pearls has seen an ebb and flow over the years and 2023 is seeing a comeback. The great thing about pearls is that they can be used in any of your bridal jewelry, including earrings, bracelets and necklaces. If you want something timeless and classic, the modern ideal of wearing pearls on your wedding day is sure to help you get exactly that. White pearls are one of those romantic styles that just makes sense in your bridal ensemble. 

Inspired by Nature

Because many brides in 2023 are so conscious of the environment and sustainability, it's no surprise that nature is making its appearance in many bridal sets. You might see a dainty necklace with a floral motif or you might see leaf patterns on modern engagement bands. Incorporating natural elements into bridal jewelry is a hot trend this year and promises to continue into next year and perhaps beyond. Feel free to combine this trend with the others on this list to make something absolutely perfect and truly your own on your big day. 

Statement Earrings

Oversize earrings are having their moment this year and are often the focal point when brides create their wedding day jewelry wardrobe. Not only does this allow you to express your individual style, but it also gives you the chance to do something different on your wedding day. There are plenty of earrings to choose from, including stunning diamond drop earrings as well as pear diamonds or colored center stones. No matter what you choose, making a statement with your earrings is so 2023.

Your Takeaway

In the year 2023, it's all about expressing yourself through your jewelry. When it comes to bridal trends, they tend to come and go, but being who you are will never go out of style. Don't be afraid to mix metals, choose alternative metals, go with something colorful or something completely unexpected. Stay true to yourself and your dream wedding should go off without a hitch.
