10 Rainbow Jewels for 2022 That Will Channel Your Inner Child

When I was a kid, I wanted everything to be rainbow and sparkly. Along with my collection of hair bows and Silly Bandz (remember those?), I had tons of rainbow jewelry. Think necklaces, bracelets, earrings and anklets. If it was rainbow then it was in my jewelry box.

Honestly, not much has changed nearly two decades later. But now, more and more people are reviving this trend as spring approaches and for good reason: it’s cute and fun! The Spring 2022 Anna Sui and Coach ready-to-wear shows featured brightly colored accessories, while the #rainbowjewelry hashtag has garnered over two million views on TikTok where influencers show off their multicolored jewelry.

There’s something about good old ROYGBIV that will put a smile on your face no matter how old you are. Also, if you’re undecided and can’t choose just one color to wear, with a rainbow you can wear them all. As legend Hannah Montana once said, you get the best of both worlds (or, in this case, all of them).

While I’ve probably just gotten older, the rainbow jewelry trend is proving surprisingly timeless with all the candy-colored accessories that are available this season. So without further ado, scroll down to see some of the best rainbow jewelry to bring out your playful side.
