From New York City to Milan, fall runway shows dazzled with the latest fashion and jeweled accessories from leading designers. Beyond the glamorous haute couture this season, all eyes were focused on the daring earrings and bracelets, rings and pendant necklaces that embellished fall collections. This autumn was a flurry of edgy baubles, clean geometric shapes and extravagant adornments.
According to Vogue fashionistas, this fall’s jewelry trends are sure to delight both the minimalists and maximalists among us! Some of the trending themes noted among top ready-to-wear designers include choker necklaces, oversized earrings and intricate jeweled hair pins for the perfect up-do! Let’s take a look at some of the hottest trends for fall 2016.
Maximalist Plate Jewelry
Designers Stella McCartney, Elie Saab, Alexis Mabille and Stella Jean served up larger-than-life earrings and statement rings crafted in perfectly round shapes that cherish the organic beauty of raw gemstones.
Chunky Chain Necklaces & Belts
Some might call these pieces a late 80’s throwback, but everyone knows fashion jewelry trends are cyclical. Renowned fashion houses Versace, Isabel Marant and Alexander Wang spiced up their fall ensembles with large chain link necklaces and belts featuring prisms, triangles and squares.
Antique-Inspired Coin Pieces
If you’re not quite ready to join the “chain gang,” consider the coin-centric pendant necklaces and drop earrings by Galliano and Carven. Crafted in muted silvers and lush golds, these refined pieces add an elegant touch to any outfit.
Design houses including Lemaire, Holly Fulton and Tod’s added flirty tassels (leather, mixed metals, and vinyl) to earrings and long pendant necklaces.
Runway models for Oscar de La Renta, Gucci and Fausto Puglisi were sporting piled-on rings, featuring a hodgepodge of nautical designs, pearls, gemstones and mixed metals.
Modern Minimalist Earrings
Among the outlandish, maximalist designs this fall were more subtle jewelry accents. Salvatore Ferragamo, J. Mendel and Louis Vuitton showcased delicate dangling earrings with geometric patterns and small metal balls made with rose gold and tarnished silver.
Cuff necklaces are so last summer! Your best friend this harvest season is the high-riding choker necklace. Conjure up your inner Renaissance damsel with a choker that suits your style. You’ll find them crafted with brass wire, velvet, plated metal, alloy castings, glass stones and pearls.
Quartz & Rough stone Jewelry
Another popular look of the moment is quartz and stone jewelry (rings and necklaces) that use a lost wax casting technique. Stones like tourmaline are cut to refract every beam of light- perfect for the bohemian babe!
