12 best statement jewelry brands in 2022: necklaces, rings

Make a statement in 2022. What have you got to lose?

Statement jewelry is back in style, as with so many other trends from the 2000’s like non-skinny jeans, flared leggings, narrow sunglasses… the list goes on and on.

Now it’s chunky rings, bedazzled necklaces and stacks of bracelets back in fashion, and all of us who got rid of those items in the 90’s and 2000’s are kicking ourselves.

If you are one of those people that had one too many yard sales and now need to re-up their supply of statement pieces, here is your chance. We rounded up all the new brands who have this older style in stock, with some new tweaks and sparkles to keep them trendy for 2022.

Use these jumplinks to skip to a specific brand, or scroll through to read about them all.
