While dainty gold styles have been the go-to for a while, chunky gold is now taking over. Just look at the mood boards and social feeds of your most-followed style stars — you’ll spot large gold hoop earrings, layers of gold chain necklaces, and stacks of thick bangles. The trend was clearly seen at Milan Fashion Week, where the jewelry looks were bolder and more statement-making than usual.
The newest gold statement necklaces jewelry trend are meant to be loud accessories that stand out against the backdrop of an outfit. The chains are thicker, and some even have charms or beaded accents to make them more of a pendant-style necklace. For example, Missoma, a demi-fine jeweller often spotted on celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Kate Middleton, has this Aguas Shell-Charm Gold-Plated Choker Necklace with a mix of shell and turtle charms for plenty of ocean-inspired heirloom vibes.

Another style that’s gaining in popularity is this beaded tribal necklace from YAZILIND, which features a chunky bib design that would add an exotic touch to your boho outfit. Alternatively, you could try this beaded bubble necklace by Daniela Villegas from her Into the Deep collection — the 18kt gold crab-shaped setting teams with an assortment of beads and stones, from agate claws to pear-cut red sapphires to rare baguette-cut watermelon tourmalines.
And of course, there’s always the classic pearl. This is the one accessory that never goes out of style, and we saw it reworked into dynamic earrings (think Simone Rocha’s take) as well as a more modern necklace at Tokyo James and Isidore Montag.
