Jewelry Trends for Fall 2012 - Gold Tones, Earth Tones, Natural Materials and Statement Pieces.

The leaves are falling, the days are cooler and thoughts go to fashion choices for heavier clothing.  I thought it would be fun to see what seems to be the trend for this autumn season.

Four key things seem to stand out to me after studying my recent trends in purchases from my customers:

  • Gold Tone Colored Jewelry
  • Warm rich browns, tans and other earth tones
  • Natural material, glass, turquoise
  • Big Bold Statement pieces.
Silver tone has always been the color of choice in past seasons, but I am seeing more and more sales of gold tone jewelry, especially in combination with bright colors.  This Bohemian inspired necklace is a good example,  with rich Autumn colors, gold tone edging and a statement design:

 Autumn always offers us darker colors in jewelry and this year is no exception. Animal prints are still all the rage and feathers are continuing to be a great seller as well.  This spotted pheasant feather set is a great example:

 One can't go wrong with turquoise.  It has sold well all year and continues to be one of my best selling materials.  Combined with glass and other stones, it's a real trend setter. This pretty set is a lovely example of glass and turquoise with some ceramic style beads as well.

All of the above pieces are statement designs.  This trend continues and the pieces seem to be getting larger and larger.  These long owl earrings are 9 inches from top to bottom.  In the popular gold color, they will indeed make a statement when worn. 

What do you think of the looks for fall?  Do you like big statement jewelry, or do your prefer something smaller and more delicate?

  7. I have found most gold plated pieces do not last very long....unless they are vintage Monet, Sarah Covingtry and one other I can't remember. Gold filled and actual gold are just way too expensive for me...big sigh.
