Best statement jewellery: amp up your accessory game with these 10 trends - from chunky chains to cocktail rings
Sometimes, dainty just won't cut the mustard. As much as we adore subtle pavé bangles and an ultra-fine Figaro chain, occasionally, only something truly spectacular can fit the bill. When it comes to utterly show stopping jewellery trends, volume, colour and sparkle are all key factors to consider. Think an elaborate collar necklace practically dripping with gems, dazzling celestial earrings and the most unforgettable cocktail ring, and you're halfway to jewellery heaven.
What are the statement jewellery trends for 2023?
Has astrology taken over all areas of your life? Even your jewellery game? On next season's agenda Missoma and Rixo are leading the way with lustrous, celestial-inspired designs, bringing some major stellar energy.
Chokers, yet again, are getting a look in, and at Chanel the focus is on luxe chains that pack a punch, whereas at Acne Studios the vibe is much edgier, with dog collar-style spike iterations.
David Koma, on the other hand, is all about the body jewellery, having sent models down the SS23 runway in beach shell-inspired metallic pieces that took the necklace to extremes, hanging well below the waist. Summer couldn't come sooner.
Hello! Fashion shares the need-to-know statement jewellery trends:
Ear cuffs are a brilliant way of boosting your ear jewellery situation without the pain of an actual piercing. We love Completedworks' cluster pearl version for a slightly retro feel.

The clue's in the name, the very essence of cocktail ring is all about celebration and indulgence. Thomas Sabo's hand-cut multi-coloured version is at the top of our party wardrobe wish list.

The royal jewellery favourite has been given a super decadent twist for SS23, and we are totally here for it. Think 'go big or go home' sizing, cool-girl clusters or paired alongside dazzling crystals.

Stellar motifs lend themselves to dazzling designs perfectly, and we're currently loving Missoma's mismatched drop-down earrings which feature a star and a crescent moon.

Make a major cuff statement this season with a thick bracelet in a brassy chrome shade. Turn to the likes of Saint Laurent for the ultimate investment piece or check out the more moderately priced Mejuri for to get more bang for your buck.

You can't beat a choker when it comes to staging some neck drama, and Timeless Pearly's twisted rope heart design is seriously wearable.
Timeless Pearly Gold-plated and cord necklace, £240, Net-A-Porter
If you're really in the mood to branch out, experimenting with body jewellery is an excellent shout. This trend perhaps best lends itself to the warmer months, as brassy golds and cool chromes look most striking when layered over bare skin.
Cult Gaia Anya gold-tone body chain, £140, Net-A-Porter
Lustrous metallics have taken a cool turn for SS23, with silver taking centre stage. The shade is all over the runway this season and we recommend you dial it up by extending it into your jewellery choices.
Paco Rabanne Silver-tone crystal necklace, £551.81, Net-A-Porter
Adding a bit of weight to a classic jewellery trend can give it a whole new dimension – wear with thinner, assorted chain styles for the ultimate layering moment.
Dextera necklace, £300, Swarovski
Okay, so tooth jewellery is pretty out there, we must admit. But if you're keen to take the plunge, know you'll be in excellent company – turn to the likes of Rihanna, Hailey Bieber and Adwoa Aboah for some dazzling dental inspiration.
