Top 18 Jewelry Trends for Fall and Winter

Fall is fast approaching, so straight from the runways of Paris, Rome and New York, here’s a glimpse of the top 18 jewelry and accessory looks that will be on trend this fall and through the winter, courtesy of glowsly.

Extra-long earrings

A stand-out look on the runways were extra-long earrings. There seems to be a competition among designers for who could make the longest pair. While most earrings weren’t extreme, the big exceptions were a few shoulder-dusting mock feather earrings. These unique creations were only worn on one ear, and were constructed of a long silver length, at the end of which a large feather-like pendant was made out of what appeared to be plastic.

Delicate dangles

Extra-long earrings can be fun, but a pair of delicate dangle earrings might be more practical. Long (but not overly so) earrings made of shimmery strings or drops of metal are timelessly gorgeous and are able to work with both daytime looks and evening wear.

Ear armor

The fiercest of the earring-related fall 2019 jewelry trends is probably the ear armor. This refers to earrings or cuffs that cover the bulk of the ear helix, looking like an especially glamorous armor.

Gold, wing-shaped earrings were tilted up, with a small cuff to wrap around the ears at Lanvin, giving us a semi-armor for the lobe and bottom half of the ear. The most extreme take on ear armor was presented at Gucci, where gold pieces molded to look like ears were fit over the ears of the models.

Single earring

Symmetry was not necessary or recommended. Wearing only one earring was one of the ways to eschew symmetry in the fall/winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. Wearing one earring is also a great way of rocking something beautiful and blingy in a non-gendered way, and if we may add, it’ll make you feel a little like a pirate too.

Versatile tassels

Tassels are a fun way of adding a slightly bohemian vibe to any look, especially when they decorate the head with one on each side in the form of earrings. We saw tasseled jewelry show up on runways with all kinds of different styles, showing that they can actually be quite versatile.

Dripping with rhinestones

Is there anything more glamorous than a cascade of rhinestones along the wrist, décolletage, or side of the neck? Rhinestone-studded jewelry pieces made for some of the most luxurious and striking fall 2019 runway accessories.

Boho-chic jewelry

The fall/winter 2019 jewelry trends have, by and large, shifted away from the hippie stylings of the previous season, even if designers are embracing a much more eco-conscious mentality.

Mismatched earrings

Models wore a different earring on each ear as a great way of cementing the asymmetrical fall 2019 jewelry trends, but it is also a great way of showcasing as much jewelry as possible, and to tell a story with a pair of earrings.

Standout hoops

It’s always exciting to see what kind of new takes on hoop earrings we will see every season. For this year’s fall/winter jewelry trends, hoop earrings were anything but simple and delicate. Designs ranged from latch back earrings with multiple hoops to hoop earrings decorated with a golden fringe.

Fierce chokers

Studs, metal, and black leather are a few of the elements you can expect out of the statement-making chokers that cropped up in the fall runways. Unsurprisingly, these chokers showed up on runways that already had a punk or grunge vibe, where they perfectly completed an edgy ensemble.

Shiny chokers

While all the dark and spiky chokers were quite fierce, there was also room in for bejeweled chokers to fit the aesthetic of those who are less dark or edgy.

Colorful gemstones

The fall/winter 2019 jewelry trends saw oversized, nearly overwhelming pieces studded with colorful gems. Colorful gemstones might feel more like costume jewelry, but if all the world is a stage, then why not rock them?

Wild multi-chain necklaces

We saw all manner of chains show up as part of the latest accessory trends, but one of our favorites was the way that different stylists layered different kinds of chains together to create a chunky look that was a little wild.

Dramatic brooches

Big, shiny, and just a little retro, brooches were one of the most fun of the fall 2019 jewelry trends. Some think brooches are a somewhat dated accessory, but all that is old becomes new again, and brooches do feel like they fit in with the cozy, retro aesthetic that some designers reveled in this season.

Big luxury chain links

As much as we liked the industrial chains of the fall 2019 jewelry trends, we also appreciated the elegance that large, more ornamental chain links could have. Jewelry designers crafted necklaces and earrings out of oversized chain links in precious metals, with flowy designs that were glamorous rather than grunge.

Pearls

Pearls are as delicate and feminine as can be, and the copious use of them stood out as one of the more traditional jewelry trends. Unsurprisingly, pearls were most popular in the big Parisian fashion houses.

Opulent matching sets

It’s been a while since anyone really thought about matching their necklace to their earrings beyond, maybe, trying to match gold with gold and silver with silver. Beyond that, it’s been everything goes. However, for fall 2019, matching sets are officially back.

Chunky bracelets

We think chunky bracelets are the most interesting of the bracelet-related fall/winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. They’re as ostentatious as the other jewelry pieces we saw on the runways, but they’re less high glam and a bit more accessible, since they are made of resin or acetate rather than expensive metals and gems.

2018 New York Fashion Week Jewelry Trends Wrap-up

gold trends fashionNew York Fashion Week 2018 took place September 6-14. Here’s a rundown of the jewelry styles and trends seen on the runways, courtesy of jckonline.com.

Ideas from the Streets

The streets outside of fashion shows have always been filled with trendsetters inspiring others with their looks, and New York Fashion Week was no exception. Jckonline writer and blogger, Brittany Siminitz who covered the event, observed that what people are wearing on the street gives us an insight into what styles are current, both in the type of jewel and how to wear it, while runway fashion shows are a glimpse into the looks that will be trending in the future.

Many of the looks that caught her eye at New York Fashion Week are enduring trends: hoop earrings, big statement studs, and necklaces worn in layers.

Big and bold gold was “the king and queen” of all that is bejeweled. “I’m so inspired by how these women wear it; surprised by how effortless some of the bigger looks appear: choker-length necklaces and big earrings worn together are somehow unfussy looking where I would have imagined they’d be too much,” Siminitz commented. Bangle bracelets were also seen, worn both at the wrist bone and a bit further up the arm.

Unconventional pieces

Here’s a look at some unconventional pieces seen at New York Fashion Week, courtesy of Vogue Paris.

  • A gold lipstick case caught the eyes of Vogue Paris on the runway. More decorative jewelry than pragmatic case, the cases swung from models’ belts to add a touch of shining glamour to the looks.
  • The Greek accessory, kombolói, also known as “worry beads,” is thought to help relieve stress, and, according to jewelry designer Tory Burch, is next season’s must-have accessory.
  • Large arm bracelets were seen perched on the biceps of many models. Worn in a variation of configurations, some models had bracelets layered symmetrically on both sides, while others had three in a cascade down their arms.
  • Riding the small bag trend, designer Brandon Maxwell created what is possibly the smallest bag in existence. A golden chain no bigger than a ring and engraved with the label’s logo was spotted on the runway, carried by the likes of Gigi and Bella Hadid.
  • Prabal Gurung’s out-of-this-world golden hoop earrings crossed-over each other, to create the impression of a planetary orbit. The Japanese pearl label Tasaki collaborated with Prabal Gurung on the jewelry for his third collection.

A Look Ahead

Taking into account the jewelry pieces spotted on the New York, London, Milan and Paris Spring/Summer 2019 runways, here’s a summary of upcoming jewelry trends, according to Vogue Paris.

  • Shell-shaped rings and pendants
  • Extra-large and 1980s-inspired earrings
  • Layered necklaces
  • Crescent moon hoops
  • Chains, chains, and more chains
  • Name and logo necklaces
  • Bold arm cuffs
  • Western-inspired pieces
  • New age chokers

A Look Forward to Fall 2018 Jewelry Trends

fall-jewelry-trendsWith Labor Day weekend in the books, we’re looking ahead to the jewelry looks that will be trending this fall, courtesy of the jewelry-savvy bloggers of jckonline.com. Don’t miss out on this year’s must-haves.

Heart shapes

Heart-shaped jewelry is anything but new, but staffers at JCK started seeing hearts—both in heart-cut gemstones and as silhouettes for settings—in the spring of 2017. The trend hasn’t slowed down, but the designs are evolving to suit modern tastes.

Swiss designer Nana Fink is one of many designers who incorporate hearts in their creations, “I love symbols and the heart is of course the strongest one, together with the star.”

Hard stones here to stay

This is another not-new trend that’s showing staying power. Opaque gems such as lapis lazuli, tiger’s eye, and malachite have been on the rise for years. Unlike faceted stones, which tend to be smaller and pricier, hard stones can be used in pieces where designers want to maximize volume. Plus, their opaqueness lends itself well to a more bohemian vibe.

Classic gold chains

It’s not as if the classic gold chain has ever gone out of fashion, but since the price of gold has come down to around $1,200 an ounce, designers are investing in it once again and the look is trending on Instagram. JCK loves chunky chain bracelets and luscious 18-inch solo chain necklaces.

Nostalgic adjustable bracelets

Fashion meets fine jewelry in this trend, where an adjustable fit means no sizing is necessary. Think precious metals and gemstones. It’s a fun, approachable look that tugs at one’s sense of nostalgia, while answering the very grown-up demand for the finer, time-tested luxuries.

Personalized signet rings

The signet ring has become popular with celebrities from Bruno Mars to Gwyneth Paltrow, and jewelry lovers everywhere are catching onto the trend. Rings engraved with signets or small seals trace their roots back thousands of years to the days of noble family crests and heraldic imagery, when wearers pressed them into clay or wax to sign or seal documents. Nowadays, both men and women are sporting signet rings engraved with initials, decorative symbols, and even gems. The look is a perfect way to capitalize on the current popularity of personalized jewelry.

Diamond solitaires never out of style

While engagement ring styles are as varied as the brides who wear them, there are certain designs trending, including rose gold and rose gold accents, rings featuring alternative stones such as morganite and aquamarine, and unconventional styles that don’t look much like the traditional engagement ring at all. Still, with such a wide range of possibilities, the classic round solitaire is a beloved, timeless design that never goes out of style (or wanes in demand, for that matter).

Vintage estate piece

Estate jewelry is becoming ever more popular, as vintage and antique jewelry lovers are always on the search for unique and one-of-a-kind pieces. To find your favorites, be willing to browse estate sales and higher-end pawn stores. Or, enjoy shopping online with ease from the trusted source of estate, vintage and antique jewelry, Adina by Empire Jewelers.
