The Spring Jewellery Trends that Matter in 2023

According to Vogue, in 2023 it is less about the style trends on the catwalks, and more about an overarching shift by jewellery lovers as they are now leaning towards a more sustainable buying approach towards second hand and vintage jewellery. Many jewellers are finding that customers are increasingly responsive to being able to upcycle their unworn or broken pieces and choose vintage and antique jewellery over new collections. In 2021, stores which were seen to promote antique pieces managed to see a rise in their sales by 27.2% as customers are now beginning to invest in rarities with a rich history behind them and a unique aspect to them.

At McGowans Jewellers, we offer an extensive range of services to bring old, antique, or even broken pieces back to life. Our skilled jewellers carry out all services from our workshop to efficiently repair your jewellery to make it look as good as new or repurpose it and give it a new lease of life, read here about our Diamond Brooch to 5-stone Diamond Ring transformation.

This spring, the ready to wear trends reflect the world around us and what is in the tastemakers’ personal style. From bold coloured gemstones to compliment spring, or a soft chain to reflect your minimalistic side, you can make your own style this spring/summer season.

But let’s scroll through this article to read all about (and shop!) the top 3 trends this year that you can follow to shape your fashion.


Pearl Jewellery is the key style for spring 2023. Pearl jewellery has been reigning the jewellery scene for quite some time, with designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Givenchy proving the trend is still alive. It is no surprise that these stones are trending as they are a perfect piece to invest in and add a touch of sophistication to your look.

Long Drop Earrings

Recognised on the Spring/Summer 2023 runways were the long drop styled earrings. A beautiful pair of long drop blue topaz earrings for your something blue would fit perfectly with your wedding day and styled with a beautiful up-do hairstyle.


What is perfect about seasonal trends is that the industries are always ready to embrace bygone trends, updating vintage pieces from eras that have passed and making them into a new piece again. This season, the brooch has cropped up in many collections, giving it the spotlight, it deserves as a fun and exciting accessory. Brooches are a top seller with our Glasgow clientele as they are incrusted with colourful gemstones and architectural shapes. Why not combine the pearl trend with the brooch?
