The Fall Jewelry Trend Everyone Will Be Wearing


With each new season we like to update a few areas of our wardrobe, from wear-everywhere dresses to seasonal footwear to, of course, our jewelry collection. Lately, our obsessions run the gamut and include everything from trendy seashells to bold statement pieces. But, as we’ve been stressing, fall will be here before we know it and with the fresh season comes an equally fresh jewelry craze to get ahead of. What’s on deck, you wonder? Chain-link jewelry that includes edgy iterations and timeless styles (don’t worry, the trend is a far cry from the shiny gold chains your dad wore in the ‘80s). Spotted on major designer runways like Chloé, Alexander Wang and Balenciaga, as well as in the collections of buzzy jewelry brands like Laura Lombardi and Alighieri, new-season chain links come in all forms (jewelry nerds will notice the types of links vary but mostly include anchor and cable chains)—we’re talking earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

What we love most about this look is that there’s something for everyone. If you’re the classic type, a linked hoop, ring or necklace will feel up your alley while more fashion-forward tastes will appreciate a little more flair like a seashell or coin pendant. If you’re considering an investment piece, chain-link pieces with diamonds or gemstones are extraordinary.

What’s more, the chained style works well as stand-out pieces or layered with your everyday essentials. They add dimension to any outfit without feeling over the top—in fact, they’re quite timeless, which makes the trend a worthy and wise one to invest in. What’s not to love?

Here, we’re spotlighting 30 chain-link pieces of jewelry for every budget and style. Scroll through to scoop up your favorite before everyone else beats you to it.
