Obsessing over your fall wardrobe? Updating your jewelry and accessories can be one of the easiest ways to give your closet the revamp it needs.  This season is all about making a statement; trends from bold pearls to 90s punk-inspired chains have the power to transform any outfit they are paired with.  Here are the top fall jewelry styles that we can’t wait to incorporate into our wardrobe.

Pearls

These aren’t your grandmothers’ pearls (though we love those too)! This season, pearls are everywhere – from earrings to stacked bracelets to chunky, multicolor strands.  Coco Chanel was the first designer to stack large pearl necklaces for everyday wear, which started a trend among fashionistas everywhere in the 1920s and 30s.

Now, we see a resurgence in this trend to pay homage to the classy ladies of the past, but with a modern twist. For an unexpected twist, try stacking pearl strands with other necklaces or mix different colors of pearl earrings and bracelets.  You can also pair your pearls with various metals and stones for a look that breathes new life into the classic feel.

Chains

Ritani Large Link Chain Necklace and Bracelet
Inspired by punk trends of the 1980s and 90s, layers of chains were seen all over the runway this season. Chain accessories come with an endless amount of possibilities: an indefinite number of interlinked ovals in varying sizes, shapes and colors. Chain jewelry can also be styled in tons of different ways: layered in varying sizes, worn alone, looped around your wrist, clasped together and then looped, etc. Put a subtle rock ‘n’ roll finish on your ensemble with this cool trend.

 

Statement Necklaces

Petra Chrysoprase Gemstone Statement Necklace Statement necklaces are a sure-fire way to add flair to your ensemble with little effort. These decorative, elaborate necklaces instantly pump up the volume of any outfit and can be paired with anything from a little black dress to a plain white tee.

Stacking Rings

Ritani diamond stacking rings in gold, silver and rose gold
Stacking rings are all the rage this season. The fun part about stacking rings is that you can decide how to style them: several rings of the same size, stacked on each other, or several rings of varying sizes stacked on the same finger at different joints. Mix and match metals for an edgy look.

Ear Climbers

Ritani diamond ear climbers earrings
We are all ears for this avant-garde style. With a subtle nod to the classic stud, these earrings are all about creating the illusion of multiple piercings. This fashion-forward statement is an easy way to add edge to your look – or even your wedding day.

 

 

Geometric Jewelry

Ritani geometric jewelry and earrings
Show off your best angle with geometric jewelry. Clean, graphic geometric shapes like rectangles, circles and stars have a modern art vibe. Geometric shapes feature sharp angles, perfect for those fashionistas who favor clean, minimal design. Architecturally clean lines and voluminous shapes add a sense of lightness to bold jewelry.

Cuffs

Ritani silver cuff bracelet
A bangle or cuff is the perfect accessory for the modern fashionista. Amp up your arm party with bracelets in varying sizes and colors for the perfect finish touch to your ensemble. The more the merrier!

Raw Stones

Ritani Petra Raw Amethyst stone necklace
Raw stones are having a major moment this season. Usually juxtaposed with polished metals, stones in unfinished form appeared all over the runway in statement necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. As an added bonus, these special jewels are said to have holistic powers that bring clarity, wisdom, and wealth.
We expect these trends to last well beyond the fall season, so don’t hesitate to try one (or all) of these. Shop our full line of fine jewelry for classic styles and trendy jewelry.
