Fall 2012 Jewelry Trends: The Magic of Color

While it’s hard to believe that Summer is almost over, we can’t hide our excitement for Fall fashion. Fall is traditionally the most exciting time of year for fashion, and 2012 is no exception. According to Vogues Guide to Fall 2012 Fashion, the “mood is adult and polished, with major embellishment, geometric prints, rich color, and lots of wonderful statement coats.”

What better way to spice up that outfit than accessorizing with this Fall’s most popular jewelry trends.

Whether you accessorize with one of a kind vintage inspired pieces or find your style through oversized bracelets, extra-long earrings and extravagant necklaces, this Fall is all about making a statement, with color!

Wrap, Stack and Layer
While some jewelry trends fade, this trend has stuck around. Bigger hoops, bands, studs, bracelets and necklaces have made their way into every fashion forward wardrobe and they seem to be here to stay.

This jewelry trend is not limited to one piece–the more the better. Try layering multiple bracelets of shapes and sizes. Play with different stones and materials. Some of our favorite designers to consider for bracelets, necklaces, and statement pieces are Chan Luu, David YurmanMarco BicegoRoberto Coin, and John Hardy.

Vintage, Antique, and Estate
Vintage, antique, estate, and pre-owned jewelry offer a unique solution to updating your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Feel as though you already have everything? There is something to be said for having a one of a kind item. Vintage, antique and Estate jewelry offer a great solution for the girl who has everything. These items are different from anything you may normally purchase or see in stores, and can spruce up any wardrobe.

The Magic of Color
Each season has its go-to traditional color palette, but each passing season always has a new set of “it” hues. This Fall, the bright color palette of the summer has been toned down as neutrals, flesh tones, and earthy colors make their way into the mix. According to Pantone, the Fall 2012 color trends are magical. “From love potions and the magical hour of sunset to witches and warlocks, fantasy and illusion are inspiring designers this fall season. With an unexpected mix of darks, brights and neutrals, they cleverly manipulate reality to transport consumers to an enchanting place, free from the stresses of everyday life.”


By escaping the stresses of everyday life and playing up on the fantasy and illusion with pops of color in our vintage inspired and statement jewelry trends, you can’t go wrong this Fall Season. For more inspiration and jewelry ideas check out the Long’s Jewelers Pinterest Page!
