The fashion forecast in gold jewelry for 2022 calls for bold, geometric shapes, layered chains, pendants and rings, and motifs inspired by both nature and the imagined realm. Perhaps it has something to do with what’s captivated our attentions in 2021. There has been a refreshing recognition of women in the spotlight, not only by measures of intelligence, but by strength, beauty, style, and perseverance. Social media continues to help us to share and appreciate earth’s natural wonders and to inspire us to travel and explore new cultures. All of these influences are shaping fashion and design in exciting, fresh ways.
Whatever style suits your fancy, Lux Bond & Green is your educated source for all that glitters. Since 1898, we’ve been traveling to the actual locations from which our favorite gold jewelry masters originate—Valenza, Vicenza, Arezzo, Firenze—in order to explore new designs, technology and value bringing you back the most beautiful Italian gold the world has to offer. We hope that gold jewelry from Lux Bond & Green can carry you into a fresh new year with exciting trends like these:
Punchy Posts and Doorknockers
The jewelry designer IPPOLITA, originally founded in 1999 by female Italian designer Ippolita Rostagno, is a perfect springboard into bold designs for 2022. These dazzling Stardust diamond post earrings feature flat, organic 18k yellow circles covered in pave diamonds. Other designs like the 18k rose gold Pois Mois huggie earrings from Vicenza-based Roberto Coin emit strength and beauty together, through their riveted and diamond-adorned surface. 14k yellow gold knot post earrings from Lux Bond & Green are smooth and powerful enough to complement a business suit, and give any wearer a confidence boost for their next presentation.
Handmade golden hoops are definitely on-trend. Not surprised? Indeed, gold hoops have been a symbol of status since the dawn of human adornment thousands of years ago. They continue to remind us of powerful female icons throughout history, and this year, you’ll find organic shapes aplenty. Diamonds and dots of gold intersperse in the Greta diamond hoop earrings, from Barbela Design, and these Roberto Coin long oval Designer Collection gold hoop earrings in 18k yellow gold are cool and timeless. These twisted and polished 14k yellow gold hoops, and the 18k yellow gold Jaipur Earrings by Marco Bicego, make a carefree and boho yet classic statement for 2022.
Layer it On!
Charms, chandeliers, chains; oh my! Less punk and more posh, these golden chains are whimsical and mysterious for the new year. Party-perfect beaded chain and diamond Classica earrings by Roberto Coin can be worn short or long, depending on your mood, look, and occasion! Marco Bicego layers colorful gemstones like blue topaz onto chains of 18k yellow gold; the Paradise Earrings and matching Paradise Gemstone Necklace are so fun that they will help metaphorically transport you to a far-away island. Florence-founded Temple St. Clair specializes in multi-faceted jewelry incorporating talismans and a variety of stones. One of our favorites is the fantastic 18k yellow gold Stella Rock Crystal Amulet pendant, with diamond, royal blue moonstone, ruby, pink sapphire, tsavorite, blue sapphire, and orange sapphire stones in a flower design. Interesting jewelry can be a great ice-breaker, and these layered pieces will have you skating through conversations all 2022.
Call of the Wild
Designers are finding outdoor inspiration to bring back to the jewelry bench this year. These delicate diamond post earrings are shaped like perfect, tiny wildflowers, set in 18k white gold. Other pieces like the Jaipur Blue Topaz earrings from Marco Bicego appear to be like deep blue pools straight from a tropical cenote. The hand-engraved golden disks featured in the Lunaria mother-of-pearl bracelet are inspired by the shape of the lunaria flower. Not only does each disk look like a petal, but they are also reminiscent of natural river rocks.
