There’s nothing we love more than an accurate trend forecast, so we had to ask Stephanie about what’s on her radar for 2023. At the top of the list: sentimental jewelry. “Now more than ever, jewelry has to mean something for people to take the dive and spend,” she says, citing jewelry with personalized elements, like birthstones, names, initials, and mantras to be big themes to watch. Next up are bangle stacks (no surprise there!), with major jewelry houses such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Hermès all leaning into their iconic iterations.
As a leader in the diamond space, Stephanie is also in the know on all things engagement rings. She predicts that modern, chunky designs will be in for 2023, along with fashion-forward rings with non-traditional stones and settings. “Interesting settings are our specialty, and we’re seeing more and more of our brides lean into this concept,” says Stephanie. “The ring isn’t just about the center stone—it’s the story the design tells about the girl who’s wearing it.”
