Holiday Jewelry Trends 2023
The holiday season is in full swing. While it’s the busiest time of year, it’s also one of the coldest. It’s the time to layer up with chunky knits and winter coats. The holidays are when you need your closet to work harder than ever. You need outfits that will take you from Christmas hopping to office parties and every social event in your holiday calendar.
That’s where holiday jewelry trends come in. The right jewelry can transition a sweater dress from a casual outfit to the perfect outfit for sipping on holiday cocktails. Keep your favorite earrings in your purse or experiment with jewelry trends to have fun with your holiday season fashion.
While we love minimalism, holiday jewelry trends are all about making a statement with bold pieces that will guarantee you a spot on the best-dressed list. We’re sharing the holiday jewelry trends we’re loving for winter 2023 and the Sunday Malibu pieces we’ll be wearing throughout the holidays.
One of our favorite holiday jewelry trends doesn’t have to cost you anything at all. Mismatched earrings are the most talked about jewelry trend for winter 2023 and our go-to at Sunday Malibu. It’s also predicted to be the must-have jewelry trend for 2024.
There are no rules for the mismatched earring trend. You can have fun with your jewelry box by mixing and matching the earrings you already have. Choose between different silhouettes or keep it more subtle with earrings that look similar with matching stones or metals.
Our Skylar stud earring set comes with three pairs of earrings to give you dozens of options for mixing and matching them together or with other styles.
Pearls are a holiday classic and one we reach for every year. They’ve been one of the standout jewelry trends for 2023 and a touch of timeless elegance to your Christmas outfits.
The Evie pearl earrings are a statement style you can wear with a sleek ponytail for a family party or an outfit function. We love these earrings for their ‘quiet luxury’ aesthetic. They’re the perfect choice for your Christmas photos or as a holiday gift.
Heading home for the holiday? Ask your mom, grandmother, or an aunt if they’ve got any vintage pearl earrings you can borrow for the holidays!
Cocktail rings are synonymous with holiday fashion. The oversized rings have an instant ‘wow’ factor – but they’re not always comfortable to wear. If you want a more minimalistic look, experiment with ring stacking. Gold rings can be effortlessly mixed and matched to suit your style, whether you’re a fan of signet rings or prefer a dainty set.
There are hundreds of styling options for stacked rings, from experimenting with geometric shapes to playing with colored stones and silhouettes. Many of our best-selling rings at Malibu Sunday come as a set for easy stacking.
The Sophie ring set features three dainty rings to wear solo, stack together, or match with your signature rings. Three rings make the perfect stack, but you can mix and match to find your perfect pairings. Don’t be afraid to mix metals or ring styles for a bolder statement.
Chunky Gold Jewelry
While silver goes in and out of fashion, gold jewelry is a staple of winter fashion. It’s the quickest way to elevate any outfit, whether you’re running from the office to a cocktail party or want to dress up for the holiday season.
Gold jewelry is universally flattering, adding warmth to your complexion as the most versatile accessory you can own. We love gold jewelry for the holidays as it’s stress-free, goes with everything, and looks effortlessly chic. Our Carmen triple chubby hoop earrings are the style we’ll be wearing every season long. They also make the ultimate stocking stuff!
Sparkles are always a good idea. The holiday season is the perfect time to bring out the jewelry you usually save for special occasions. Those sparkly earrings you love or the diamond tennis bracelet you wear on nights out. If you’ve been looking to add a little sparkle to your holiday wardrobe, try an ear cuff!
This jewelry trend was all over the runway, styled with classic studs or simple hoops. Ear cuffs elevate any outfit and make it easy to stack your jewelry for a high-fashion look. You don’t need to get a new piercing to start wearing ear cuffs. Our Nia ear cuff slides into place and is the perfect finishing touch to a sleek ponytail or glamorous up-do.

The holiday season is one time when sometimes more is better. You can embrace your inner maximalists with more over-the-top looks than you would wear during the rest of the year. We all love to dress up during the holidays – and that doesn’t stop at our jewelry.
Layered necklaces are predicted to be one of the biggest 2024 jewelry trends. You can get ahead of the curve by experimenting with this look for the holiday season. Styling multiple necklaces creates a more striking look and adds a hint of drama.
There’s an art to layering necklaces. You’ll want to choose different lengths and leave enough space between necklaces to prevent them from tangling. While you might choose three or four necklaces, you should have one that acts as the focal point.
Layered necklaces are perfect for wearing over turtlenecks and sweaters in the winter or styling with a plunging neckline for a holiday party. Play around with different lengths, stones, and metals to add extra to your outfit. The Sloan baguette necklace is a classic tennis necklace you can wear solo or layer with daintier pendants for the holidays.
