With so many jewellery trends out there, it can be a tad overwhelming to sort through the noise. That's why I love to tap experts in the field to offer their professional (and impeccably stylish) takes. For this story, I've interviewed Caroline Muller, co-founder of Paris-based jewellery boutique Mad Lords. She's expertly curated her beautiful boutique on Rue Saint-Honoré with a mix of French and American brands—including Jacquie Aiche, Hoorsenbuhs, Maria Tash, Foundrae, and more. 

As she previously worked for LVMH and Ralph Lauren, it's safe to say Muller knows a thing or two about luxury style. In addition to the Paris location, Muller and her husband launched stores in Deauville and Saint-Tropez. Scroll down to read about and shop her favourite jewellery trends for 2022.

1. Long, Multicolored Beaded Necklaces

"I love wearing multicoloured beaded necklaces that can be styled both short and long on the neck. They're such fun pieces of jewellery that make for the perfect summer accessory, especially if you're wearing all neutrals or plain black."—Caroline Muller

This rainbow necklace can be doubled up for a shorter style, or embrace the length. 

This delicate long necklace is perfect for stacking. 

The detachable textured shell pendant adds a summer touch to this piece. 

2. Ear Stacks

"There's nothing more fun than having multiple ear piercings to create your very own ear story. It's so cool to see how clients and friends curate their stacks with earrings from multiple designers at Mad Lords, especially with piercings done in areas other than the lobe."—Muller

The square design adds a new shape to your stack. 

3. Ankle Bracelets

"I've always been a fan of anklets because they give off a playful and sexy touch. You can find ones that are beaded, layered with charms, or even covered in diamonds. Ankle bracelets can create an elevated look all summer long."—Muller

4. Signet Rings

"Signet rings have definitely made a comeback and are one of the best revival trends of 2022. It's a traditional piece that is now part of the modern wardrobe that anybody can wear. It used to be traditionally worn on the pinky but now can be worn on any finger you like."—Muller

5. Heart-Shaped Jewelry

"Anything designed in a heart shape is a huge trend we're seeing this year simply because it's an association with love, and it symbolizes many beautiful things."—Muller
