The start of a new year doesn't only mean a list of resolutions to follow for the next 365 days. It also means assessing what's in and what's out so you can plan your wardrobe, your kitchen shelf and your dresser table accordingly. Trend reports can even dictate what jewellery you will be wearing this year. 2023 is going to see plenty of changes as far as accessorizing is concerned. Big baubles are gone and will be replaced by minimally chic pieces. From the fingers, the focal point of jewellery will shift to the wrist and neck. Want to know more? Bhavya Shah, founder and CEO of Shea Luxe Jewels shares his expertise on the top jewellery trends we'll be seeing in 2023.

1. Go Hoop Crazy
Diamond hoops are the top trend for 2023 and are an eternal component of any jewellery collection. Natural diamond hoops lend versatility with a hint of luxury, giving them 'fashion's most indispensable' status. Hoops earrings stand for totality, unity, and infinity because they are a perfect circle.
2. Get Chained To Cuban Links
A Cuban link necklace, made in a barbed wire style, is a classic piece of jewellery. The barbed wire necklace went from being worn by criminals to being a fashion accessory flaunted by famous people. Cuban link earrings can add a touch of elegance to a casual outfit, such as a shirt and jeans. It can be teamed with a formal look to add an avant-garde touch.
3. Diamond Cuffs For The Win
A diamond studded cuff is the ideal illustration of how to use one piece to subtly create a statement. Cuff bracelets are the simplest method to improve any outfit. Even though the silhouette is merely an arched curve, the impact is great. They also serve as symbols of female power. Cuffs were used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans as status symbols and talismans of protection.
4. Stack Your Style
The game of stacking continues to be popular in 2023, whether you're stacking delicate pieces, heavier jewellery or bracelets and bangles. The idea behind stackable jewellery is to give the wearer the ability to create a personalised look by combining various pieces. This kind of jewellery is popular for wearing every day and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
5. Chokers Continue To Reign
Chokers aren't going anywhere any time soon, that much is certain. The choker is still available in many jewellery designers' permanent collections today and is considered a closet staple. Chokers can be worn alone or layered with other necklaces for a more eclectic and personalised look. Try layering a choker with a longer necklace or multiple chokers of different lengths and styles.
6. Enamel Jewellery Never Ends
Even though enamel is regarded as not very adaptable, enthusiasts of fine jewellery who understand the craftsmanship and complexity of enameling, choose it. The masterpieces are made in Turkey and Italy with an eye for detail and an unparalleled finish. Whatever the occasion, enamel jewellery can be dressed up or down.
7. Say Yes To Colour
Rainbow sapphires are in, which represent the pinnacle of colour and sophistication. People who want to dress up their look with something bright and eye-catching often opt for this kind of jewellery. It is a great way to add colour to any outfit and can be worn for both casual and formal occasions.
