Hip Hop Jewelry Trends for 2022

There is no doubt that the hip-hop trend is leading the way in jewelry styles as the world of hip-hop respects the status that comes with jewelry.

In 2022, hip-hop jewelry trends are all about capturing people’s attention, from chunky chains to iced-out rings. Meanwhile, new ways of self-expression, like custom pendants, will dominate this year’s hip-hop jewelry fashion. Keep reading to discover KRKC's top picks for the jewellery trends that will give you sparkle in 2022.

Custom pendants

What makes you unique from others when you walk into a room full of people wearing jewelry as fancy as yours? It might not be gold and diamonds, but showcasing your personality instead. That's why celebrities love bespoke pendants.

In Cardi B's latest single “Hot Shit”, some viewers may have noticed the special pendant around her neck, a ghost promoting the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and paying homage to one of the pop characters in the series.

"The Voice" is the name of Lil Durk's 2020 album. This rectangular pendant is covered with pear, round and emerald-shaped diamonds. On the back of the pendant is engraved “I Saved the Trenches & Became the Voice”.

Attention-grabbing rings

Rings have long been a staple of the hip-hop jewelry style. Now the question has shifted from whether to wear a ring to what kind of ring you should wear. Rings are full of symbolism, making them the ideal jewelry for self-expression.

Personalised chains

Chains are an essential fashion item in hip-hop style. It should come as no surprise that they are still very much in the spotlight in 2022.

This year, you'll see hip-hop stars wearing custom-made sparkly chains. Many will also be layering their chains for a stylish look.

Meanwhile, you can add a custom pendant of your own design to it, or make it even more glamorous by setting diamonds throughout the chain.

Drake’s Owl Chains

No surprises when it comes to who made an owl chain here. To celebrate the release of his newest album, “Honestly, Nevermind”, Drake ordered 4 new gold chains. Each of the owls has a different color stone in their eyes. He already has a pretty wide jewelry collection but it seems like a good portion of them do include the owl. In 2018, the rapper received a 100-carat, life-size owl chain that included its own birdcage.
