While you may know Etsy as an online marketplace for customizable gifts and engagement rings, it also just so happens to be a treasure trove for the latest fashion inspo (yes, really!). If you’re intent on uncovering unique, one-of-a-kind pieces hand-crafted by talented artisans, then you’ve come to the right place. Etsy’s resident trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson predicts these next four jewelry categories — based upon top searches and what’s currently hot among buyers and sellers — are on the cusp of blowing up.

Mountain Jewelry

The hills are alive! Embrace the great outdoors with Little Paper Crane’s best-selling Copper Mountain Peak Ring ($35).

Gear up for your next adventure with this elegant Everli Gold Mountain Necklace ($85), a subtle ode to the undulating ridges and valleys that you call home.

You can count on rocking this hand-stamped Peach Tree Lane Brass Mountain Sunrise ($21) from sunup to sundown.

Tutti Frutti

These hand-painted Boo and Boo Factory Gold Tassel Earrings ($32) — think of it as wearable art for your ears — are the ish. Go bananas by styling ’em with a white jumpsuit and a retro jelly basket bag.

Picnic-approved, summer-ready, these fresh ‘n’ fruity Watermelon Perler Bead Earrings ($10) by Adults Are Kids Too were made for the ‘Gram.

Get ready to add a punch to your lewk with a set of Dzy Dzy Designs’ kitschy Cherry Earrings ($25). These bad boys would look berry cute styled alongside a flouncy summer blouse or LWD.


Long live lucite is right. We’re loving the minimalist look of this Jill Makes Clear Acrylic and Brass Statement Necklace ($36), especially when teamed with a silky cami and pantsuit for the boardroom.

“Look, ma, no hands!” Day or night, work or play, these Liz Lau Studio Clear Handy Studs ($20) will be a match for your offbeat style sensibilities. Add a tuxedo blazer, maybe?

Ah, we can see clearly now. Swap out your ubiquitous hoops for a pair of Kertis Translucent Lucite Earrings ($35). Expect the milky quartz beads to make a grand entrance with a Grecian-inspired maxi in tow for upcoming summer nuptials.


Spring 2018 marks the return of brooches, but here’s the kicker: Modern interpretations (and vintage-inspired heirlooms) rule the land. Channel the tropics with an exotic Green Palm Leaf Brooch ($27) by LAK LAK Paris that would look hella cute fastened to the lapel of a sleeveless blazer or canvas tote.

Use this Sketch Inc Geometric Neon Origami Brooch ($14) to customize a denim jacket (or vest) for a mood-enhancing accoutrement.

Fasten this extra AF Sailor et Irma Metallic Evil Eye Brooch ($56) to the collar of a crisp button-down for a snazzy update. Wink.
