5 Jewelry Trends from the 90s That Are Back in Style

5 Jewelry Trends from the 90s That Are Back in Style

The resurgence of 90’s trends in today’s fashion can be a mixed bag of emotions for some.

While we can’t say we miss the swishing sound that accompanies every step while wearing a windbreaker, there are some trends that can bring a fun, nostalgic touch to your 21st-century outfit. If you want an elevated blast from the past, check out these 90’s inspired fine jewelry pieces below!

1. Gothic Style Pieces

Perhaps you never fully committed to the popular gothic style of the ’90s. (We get it. Black lipstick is hard to apply every morning.)

Good thing this style is back! Add a dash of Victorian style to your outfit with these cross pendant necklaces:

Style #LVN623

Channel your gothic years (sans the heavy kohl eyeliner) with this 18k yellow gold diamond cross pendant. This stunning piece features almost a carat worth of diamonds surrounding an inspiring agate center. Standing at 4 inches tall, this bold pendant adds a grunge touch to any outfit.

Style #LVNWC823W

Want a more minimalistic take on the gothic style? We’ve got you covered there too! Check out this petite cross pendant necklace. Available in white, rose, or yellow gold, this piece is guaranteed to fit with your current wardrobe while adding just a touch of 90’s inspiration. The mixed-size clusters of diamonds add a unique touch to this simple, yet beautiful piece. 

2. Chunky Chains

Chunky chains could be seen around the necks of anyone with a sense of style in the ’90s. Looking around now, nothing has changed! From athleisure to a night out, these chains add a bold, yet elevated statement to any look.

These are a few of our favorites:

Style #NK1946DC

This edgy chain necklace is made of 18k white and yellow gold and features a bar and ring clasp adorned with 137 round diamonds. The simple design of this chain, in conjunction with the sparkling closure, truly makes it a day-to-night piece. (Especially if that daytime outfit happens to include a designer bucket hat.)

Style #BR0910JG

Add a dash of 90’s flair to your outfit with this chunky diamond chain bracelet. Embellished with over a thousand round diamonds, this piece is guaranteed to garner some attention. Especially with 8.47 carats of shining diamonds peeking out from under your sleeve.

3. Sparkly Chokers

Want to reminisce on the days of the infamous plastic choker without ever having to step foot in a Hot Topic? Elevate this look with a more sparkly piece. Chokers can add a flirty touch to any outfit, especially when they’re dripping in diamonds.

Style #LVNNR7828R

Show off your funky style with this stunner from Uneek’s Cascade Collection. Adorn your collarbones with 7 shining disks of round diamond clusters attached to an 18k rose gold chain. With over 40 diamonds sprinkled across this piece, you’re guaranteed to shine.

4. Cocktail Rings

Style #R2001GTU

Chunky, colorful plastic rings donned every last finger in the ’90s. Channel this feeling with this Green Indicolite Tourmaline Cocktail Ring, complete with 60 round diamonds surrounding the inspiring green indicolite tourmaline cushion center. There is no shortage of glitz with this piece, especially with a 3.27 ct stone in the center.

5. Cuff Bracelets

So long are the days of the plastic slap bracelet. We’ve grown up, and so has our jewelry. 

Style #BA038

Decorate your wrists with this 5-Row Round Diamond Cuff Bracelet. Over 30 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds are encapsulated in 18k white gold on this gorgeous piece.  If you’re looking for a statement piece with ’90s inspiration, this is the one for you.
