5 Fall Jewelry Trends to Try NOW!

Jewelry trends come and go, but the way to always have style is by always incorporating classics. These five trends combine classic pieces with new or antique elements to keep things interesting. Give them a try to refresh your fall collection:

1. Grandma Chic

There’s one thing we can’t argue with – grandma is chic. Think big, chunky metals with classic, oversized pearls. Think brooches with sleek, minimalist tops. It works because there’s always a classic element mixed with a bit of irony.

2. Mixed Metals

People are often afraid to mix metals, but combinations of materials work when there is a unifying theme somewhere whether it’s their size, height or style. We love layering white, yellow and rose gold together in not only rings but also bracelets and necklaces!

3. Modern meets Classic

While classic is always in, sometimes we get the urge to tszuj up our collection to make our look a bit more interesting or edgy. You can’t go wrong with a classic solitaire and some really interesting Love Hurts bands, or an arm stack full of tennis bracelets, beads and bangles. Just because it’s classic doesn’t mean it has to be boring!

4. Boho Chic

From everyday to bridal, boho chic is in. Think long layering necklaces, astrology-inspired designs and florals. Jewelry is an incredible way to dress up boho ensembles, emphasizing the chic in boho chic.

5. Pearls pearls pearls

As Jackie O. said, “pearls are always appropriate.” Always. Ropes and ropes of pearls, alongside sweet earrings or interesting accessories transform any look from plain to classic. Pearls mixed with diamonds or gemstones gives an instant dose of glamour.

THE LONG-LIVED APPEAL OF SKULL JEWELRY

Beloved by rockers and history buffs alike, skull jewelry has stayed relevant across centuries. 

Edgy? Morbid? Timeless? Depending on your point of view, any of these adjectives could be used to describe jewelry featuring skulls. For the historically inclined, skulls are a popular symbol in memento mori jewelry, a design style dating back to the 16th century intended to remind wearers that one day they will die. In other words, it was a message to the God-fearing masses that you better live right or face the consequences later.
