Yes, It’s Actually Happening—Silver Jewelry Is Making a Comeback

In our ever-evolving digital landscape, the yellow gold trend has outlived its coequals with ease, taking center-stage on Instagram feeds and YouTube streams alike. As is always the case with fashion, the endless pursuit of freshness drums on. The moment that yellow gold reached (and passed) its peak really just precluded the return of a familiar aughts trend: silver jewelry

Is Silver Coming Back in Style in 2021?

What Silver Jewelry Styles Are Trending in 2021?

Though hardly novel in its own, the new silver accessory designs hitting the market today come with experimental, character-injecting elements that set them apart from the rest. Sculptural orb-like necklaces have replaced layered gold chains, while silver statement earrings have found their way onto the likes of Kylie Jenner and Halsey. Whether you prefer to shop what’s trending or you err towards the classics, the reemergence of silver is sure to feel right at home in your wardrobe—it’s just about finding the right fit. 

From casual to event-ready, explore the 6 key silver jewelry trends set to upgrade your rotation.

1. Sivler Abstract Statement Jewelry

Fashion’s current fun-loving state is all about taking risks (especially after a year of playing it safe), and that experimental nature extends through to the silver jewelry trend. In lieu of dainty, classic styles, challenge yourself to incorporate silver pieces that make a bigger statement—like Alexander McQueen’s Multi-Hoop Earring or Hannah Jewett’s celeb-loved Droplet Ring. These vine-like, textured shapes will continue to dominate your feed in the months ahead. Pair them with a mesh top, jeans, and heels for an edgy evening look.

2. Gem-Embellished Silver Jewelry

Without going over the top, gem embellishments can instantly graduate silver trinkets from “meh” to conversation starters. The best part? Many of them come off as statement pieces but can easily be worn casually, especially if you stay away from oversized or ultra-flashy designs. Amid the continued reign of pearl accessories, designers like Mounser and Santangelo are pairing the neutral-colored stone with silver-toned metals and other colorful gems. The end result? Pieces that offer soft pops of color, but pair with just about anything in your wardrobe lineup. The next time you wear an LBD, tie in these bijoux to give the garment a Holly Golightly-approved boost.

Extraverted dressing has made its way back into the lives of the fashion collective, and it’s giving minimalism a run for its money. Where accessories are concerned, that means piling on the layers—but you may feel inclined to split the difference with a few silver cuff bracelets versus the colorful jelly bangles also making an appearance. The end result may still lean on pared-down neutrals, but not without turning a few heads. Style yours with a crisp white button-down and linen bermuda shorts for a laidback peak summer look.

5. Silver Mix-and-Match Earrings

Straight from the runways (and lookbooks) of designers such as Gucci and Paco Rabanne, the asymmetric earring microtrend may be headed towards “macro” territory. Much of its success is likely tied to its creativity-inducing nature—the duality of the look lends a sense of individuality and flair to your outfit, be it a stud paired with a hoop or a pair of mixed-length dangle earrings. Of course, you can DIY the look by way of purchasing single earrings rather than pairs, or by playing with silver styles that are already in your collection. Regardless, you’ll want to wear these with something just as edgy—like a biker jacket, matching leather pants, and square-toed boots.

6. Silver Chain-link Jewelry

After outliving its trend phase, chain-link styles have graduated to mainstay status in nearly every fashion lover’s closet. If you snagged a few gold-linked pieces in the past (and you probably have), then silver iterations are naturally your next stop in making the look feel fresh again. Plus, as similar as you might expect chain designs to be, they actually come in a range of aesthetics, fit for every mood. The edgier end of the spectrum with a style complete with antique metal and a carabiner clasp from Marla Aaron, or go for a refined look with Tilly Sveaas’ thin, elongated links. Either way, this piece will serve as the cherry on top of your most laidback ensembles—lounge sets included.
