Fall/Winter 2009-2010 Jewelry Fashion Trends

You have probably noticed that the some of the hottest jewelry Fashion Trends from Fall 2008/Winter 2009 such as decadently embellished pieces and dramatic Necklaces are still resonating today. This Fall, some of the same rules will apply, but the colors will become much richer as the temperatures begin to decline. Jewelry design insiders are whispering that the next “big thing” is going to shake up the color and texture palette of your jewelry arsenal. Rumor has it that one of the major jewelry trends is going to have a Russian folkloric theme. These ornately designed pieces will be swathed in rich colors such as cobalt blue, purple, ruby, forest green, black and gold. Think of gorgeous, ornately detailed necklaces, earrings, bangles and rings that boast scintillating gemstones, tassels and charms.

But let’s get back to the basics; there are a few trends that are all the rage right now which you can still wear during the fall/winter season. That doesn’t mean you will still be able to wear those turquoise chandelier earrings…no, these colors should have a darker hue. The goal of your fall/winter accessories is to perfect a subtle mix of jewelry that can take you from day to night. This new trend takes its cue from seemingly casual colors and extravagantly sparkling jewelry that will be a major look for the upcoming holiday season. Designers are infusing semi-precious and opaque stones with canorous colors to complete the look of any style maven, whether she is in the office or on a date. A myriad of designers are also keeping the economy in mind as well, as there will be a lot of pieces that have a high-end look with an affordable price tag. So, on your quest for some new fall and winter staple pieces, be vigilant in your search for gemstones that add a rich burst of alluring colors and textures to your look.

This Fall re-think your…..

Statement Necklaces

These necklaces flaunt large gemstones and/or over-sized shapes against muted color schemes. Look for eclectic bold pieces that infuse various textures within the design such as ribbons vs. metal and woods vs. gemstones. These necklaces are to be worn with little if any other jewelry. They are a great way to stay on trend while exuding a look that seems like it required a minimal effort.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are perfect fall/winter accessories because they are typically embellished with gorgeous gemstones that elegantly cascade down the ears and frame a woman’s face beautifully. This season look for earrings with intense color palettes such as infusions of fuchsia with garnet or deep olive greens with topaz. A burst of fierce color and glistening gemstones creates a striking contrast that gives any ensemble a touch of alluring glamour.

These necklaces flaunt classic silhouettes that look great on any woman and look great for years to come. Today’s torsade necklace packs a modern twist; with satin ties as clasps, enchanting charms and various sized chains to give them an edgier feel.

Embellished Bracelets

Whether you are into the eclectic, the classic, the modern or the edgier looks, this season’s on-trend choices all have one thing in common…more embellishments.

Cocktail Rings

Cocktail rings are items that will never really go out of style. There is always a party or event where you will be holding a champagne glass and you will definitely need a ring that makes a statement. This upcoming season you should look for oversize gemstones, eclectic patterns and gloss to accentuate your signature look. Some designers are showcasing clean looks by combining gemstones and woods. Fabrizio Giannone’s contributions are not only gorgeous, but give an understated option for the often over-the-top looks from last season.

Coco Chanel once said that “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” However far-fetched that may sound to some, there is some truth to it. One can look at jewelry from any given time period and get an idea of what was occurring in that society. During the Renaissance era, the jewelry was extremely decadent. During the Victorian era, jewelry conveyed a prim and proper delicacy that was considered standard behavior for women. What will be the mood this season? It seems that a lot of designers are still tapped into the idea of using unconventional materials this season, perhaps filling that need for a little decadence during an uncertain financial time. This Fall, don’t be afraid to wear pieces that are considered over-the-top. Add just a few of these fall pieces from each category to your jewelry arsenal and…voilĂ …you’re on trend.
