Gunderson’s Top Trends of 2023.

Every year, we try and identify the top trends that we’re forecasting for the next several months. At the beginning of 2023, our team of style advisors put together this exclusive list: the Gunderson’s Top Trends of 2023.

Coastal Grandma 

Sea-side Inspired Pieces | Baroque Pearls & Natural Beads

This 90’s throwback brings up nostalgia for coastal bungalows and quaint seaside vacations Think long, flowing fabrics in pastel colors, sandals, big hats, tote bags. For us Midwesterners, our interpretation may include lazy days at the lake, drinks on a patio, or just hanging around home listening to Jimmy Buffet. Dressing up to relax was good for grandma, and it’ll be good for you too. 

Personalized Jewelry

Signet & Other Pinky Rings | Zodiac Pendant Medallions | Initials

The signet ring has been an essential part of the modern jewelry wardrobe, and its reign of being a hot trend shows no sign of slowing down. The trend has spread to encapsulate all variations of pinky rings with engravings or gemstones. We think this trend is a continuation of the zodiac medallion trend from last year, which continues to remain popular

Big 80’s

Metal Heavy Pieces | Cuff bracelets | Hoop earrings

Plug your ears—this is some loud jewelry!  These no-holds-barred looks evoke the brash and beautiful 1980’s, a place where words like ‘whisper jewelry’ hadn’t been invented yet. If you want something to compliment a great blown out hairstyle, take a closer look at these metal-heavy pieces. Don’t be afraid, wear your big jewelry every day! 

Everything Emerald

Emerald Gemstones | Emerald Cut Diamonds (Bridal & Fashion)

Emeralds are on point this year: both the color and the cut! While the emerald has always been admired for its rich and luscious green color, the faceted step-cut helps enhance the beauty of a near-white diamond. Either worn in a ring or hanging from a pendant, an emerald is a hot look right now.

Shoulder Duster Earrings 

Long Statement Earrings | Fringe | Total Relaxation

Dust your shoulders off and start visualizing yourself wearing a stunning pair of dangle earrings! While studs always are popular, we’ve seen the dangles drop further down, creating a dramatic look that you can wear multiple ways. As with anything, always try to find a pair with lots of diamonds!
