Fall Jewelry Trend: Make a Statement

Today, September 23, is the first day of fall 2011. While today marks the first day of autumn on the calendar, we’ve had this time of year on our minds for months. Fall is traditionally the most exciting time of year for fashion, and 2011 is no exception. 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.

Bigger Classics
Ever heard the expression bigger isn’t always better? Not this year! Bigger hoops, bands, studs, bracelets and necklaces are all making their way into every fashion forward wardrobe.

This current jewelry trend is not limited to one piece–the more the better. Try layering multiple bracelets of shapes and sizes. Some of our favorite designers to consider for bracelets, necklaces, and statement pieces are David Yurman, Marco Bicego, Roberto Coin, John Hardy, and Yvel.

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.

Each season has its go-to traditional color palette, but each passing season always has a new set of “it” hues. According to Pantone, the Fall Fashion 2011 color trends are sensible and spirited. “Designers take a painterly approach to fall 2011 by artfully combining bright colors with staple neutrals, reminiscent of how an artist would construct a stunning work of art,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Much like a painter’s masterpiece, there is a certain romance to this season’s palette.”
