5 Pieces That Belong In Your Jewelry Box This Fall


Did you make your Fall fashion must-have list and check it twice? A-line minis? Check. Menswear-inspired suiting? Check. What about 70’s flares, patchwork and fringe? One of the easiest way to freshen your look is with accessories. From textured hose to furry scarves, the Fall 2015 runways were overrun with great ideas. But jewelry is what we know best. So here are five fab modern jewelry trends that will keep you looking au courant all season long.

       Fall Jewelry Trends


AKA the Lariat, this sleek, sexy silhouette looks thoroughly modern worn alone or paired with other necklaces. Take the plunge with India Morgan’s smashing Sawtooth Lariat Necklace, featuring her trademark 14k Gold-plated sawtooth beads. Lumo’s delicate Gemstone Lariat Necklace drips with charm: your choice of Sapphire, Turquoise, Ruby or Carnelian gemstones dangling from a delicate gold-fill chain. And we’re over the moon for Liz Law’s charming Sterling Silver Lunar Drop Necklace, with a crescent moon dangling from the center and a circle pendant swinging from the extension.


Longing to make a statement? Take your cue from the Fall shows and flaunt a pair of long, modern earrings. Dana Bronfman’s 2 1/2 inch-long Inverted Cross Earrings in hammered Sterling Silver sport lovely curves to frame your face. Go bold with India Morgan’s stunning 2 inch Yin Yang earrings in Mother of Pearl, Black Onyx and 14k Gold.


Contemporary jewelry designers are taking a shine to bold sculptural shapes in Silver. Designers Third Crown‘s collection has a fresh urban vibe and a decidedly architectural bent. Their Arc Ring and Arc Choker in Silver were inspired by the Arc De Triomphe and the shape of vintage handcuffs. Proving minimalist jewelry is modern to the max, Selin Kent’s octagonal Etta Hoop Earrings in White Gold-plate are a sleek, sculptural take on the traditional hoop.


Slip one on for cocktails. Or breakfast. Or tea. Modern cocktail rings look sexy day and night. Why not make one your signature? Livewell Designs’ oversize Signet Diamond Ring in oxidized Sterling Silver has twenty-five White Diamonds set in an oval. India Morgan’s spiky Gunmetal Sawtooth Ring features her trademark Sawtooth pattern in plated Gunmetal. Did we say sexy? Yeow.


Rock a long pendant (or two) with anything from a t-shirt or cocktail dress and you instantly look up-to-the-minute. Acanthus’ edgy Corona Pendant features a hand-faceted Bronze pendant on a 24-inch-long Black Spinel gemstone chain. Michele Chang’s elegant Seed Pod Necklace with Gemstones features an organic seed pod shaped pendant in Sterling Silver accented with a row of eight (we counted!) diamonds.
