5 Jewelry Trends to Wear in 2021

5 Jewelry Trends to Wear in 2021

Adapting to a world of Zoom meetings and time spent working from home, statement earrings and necklaces were an easy way to dress up any look (even if you were just wearing sweatpants!) over the last year. But with the arrival of 2021, we’ve seen some new jewelry trends taking the spotlight. 

As we close a year unlike any other, classic and bold looks alike have been growing in popularity and giving us fresh and exciting fashion trends to follow. For jewelry fans looking for a sneak peek into the year’s trends, here are our top five 2021 jewelry trends to look forward to. 


With unique, freshwater shapes, pearls are an instant classic that has taken on an edgier spotlight in 2021. Say goodbye to classic strand necklaces, as fun silhouettes and combinations have taken the stage- for both men and women! 

Common Alloy’s Chain Link and Pearl Necklace fuses two exciting 2021 jewelry trends for a vintage-inspired look with a modern twist. Combining edgy chain links with delicate pearls is a great way to dress up a timeless classic and make you fall in love with the look over and over again.

Chain Jewelry

An old favorite that has received a simple and beautiful revolution, chain jewelry is making a comeback in 2021. Whether subtle and delicate like Common Alloy’s Rectangle Chain Link Necklace, or bold and distinct, chain jewelry is a versatile trend that you’ll never get tired of. 

Necklaces don’t always have to be delicate. Instead, make a bold statement with layered chain jewelry in silver or gold. Whether you’re pairing it with a dress and heels, or with a t-shirt and jeans, this is one style you’ll love to mix and match.

Pendants + Charms

A jewelry trend that is rolling over from 2020, pendants and charms are back, with a modern upgrade. Pendants or charms have the ability to bring good fortune, healing, or happiness to all who wear them. 

Transforming a simple necklace into an eye-catching adornment, they are also conversational pieces that add meaning to every outfit. An ultimate storyteller, adding a Mudra charm or delicate pearl to your necklace tells a lot about your style and passions.

Sterling Silver

Sorry gold chain and hoops, it’s time for silver to take the center stage. Though we love a good gold piece at any time of day, sterling silver is making a big comeback in 2021. 

A subtle classic, sterling silver has a vintage vibe to it while still offering modern and enchanting silhouettes. Plus, silver can be super affordable, making it easy to start collecting and stacking your silver rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Diamond Simulants and Lab Grown Diamonds

Get ready to save your money while still looking fabulous. As people continue to educate themselves about the diamond industry, more jewelry seekers are turning to lab grown diamonds or diamond simulants, like cubic zirconia

Looking just as good (and sometimes better!) than the real thing, these alternative diamond types are better for the environment and provide great value to the wearer.
