There’s nothing like a little wardrobe refresh at the beginning of a new year and new jewelry is one of the easiest and most exciting ways to do that.

Since the start of the pandemic, there has been a rise in the popularity of jewelry, especially with the amount of time spent on Zoom. More people are wearing jewelry on an everyday basis to elevate their WFH looks, knowing that these are pieces can be elevated and dressed up as well.  

Fashion stylist Erica Wark highlighted some of the top jewelry trends of the season that will most definitely add some joy and personality to any look.

Colourful Gems 

If you're looking to add a small pop of colour to your everyday wardrobe, look no further than colourful gems.
