The Jewellery Trends Set to Define the Season
Update your everyday jewellery curation with the standout trends for spring/summer 2023
This just in: Liberty’s definitive rundown of the most important spring/summer jewellery trends to know (and wear) now. From marine life pendants to pick ‘n’ mix colours, we’ve gathered the ultimate list of the designs, themes and styles you're bound to see everywhere, as well as the most extraordinary new pieces to land in our Jewellery Hall.
They might sit snugly on your smallest digit, but pinky rings are one of the biggest trends of the season – if you go for one that’s a little out of the box, that is. Inspired by the cosmos, the 9ct Gold Equinox Tsavorite Signet Ring, £465 puts a distinctly Liberty spin on this much-loved classic, while the 18ct Gold Extra Small Rainbow Confetti Skull Ring, £4,550 by Polly Wales has a little rebellious edge.

Our love of pearl jewellery shows no signs of waning this summer. But to avoid the twee, fortune favours the bold and unusual, so opt for a set of bigger-the-better earrings like Monica Vinader’s Baroque Pearl Chain Drops, £250. Your pearls needn’t be white either. Strung with iridescent blue peacock pearls, Astley Clarke’s 18ct Gold-Plated Vermeil Bracelet, £145 proves that pearls have gone from traditional to fashion-forward.

Pick 'n' Mix Colours
When it comes to colourful jewellery, take your inspiration from a childhood sweet shop, as many of the latest collections showcase the best of candy colours. Featuring carnelian and chalcedony stones in positive tones of orange and pink, take Auree’s 18ct Gold-Plated Vermeil Necklace, £135 as a vibrant case in point. Cuffs and bangles are also big news, too, so leave space on your wrist for the 14ct Gold-Plated Mirrored Pyramid Brake Hinge Cuff Bracelet, £165 by Alexis Bittar.

Using your everyday jewellery curation as an opportunity to express your personality is another trend high up on the jewellery agenda. Have a mischievous streak? Anissa Kermiche’s Gold-Plated French for Goodnight Bracelet, £140 has the potential to become the most you piece in your collection. And if there’s space around your neck for a new signature pendant, might we suggest Alex Monroe’s Gold-Plated Floral Letter necklace, £150 – featuring your own initial, of course.

Under the Sea
This season, designers looked out to sea in search of inspiration. Just take Alex Monroe’s Gold-Plated Pendant Necklace, £240, a link chain that features a small crab charm clasping a diamond between its pincers as proof. If you’re riding the current Y2K fashion wave, perhaps NOTTE’s Over the Rainbow Beaded Chain Pendant Necklace, £80 with its multicoloured seashell pendant might be of interest? Or the playful Pearl Lobster Love Necklace, £165 by Pura Utz?
