Jewelry is an investment worth making, especially since the styling possibilities are endless. Whether you’ve a penchant for simple stacked rings or prefer a standout pair of earrings, the right piece has the ability to completely transform your look, quickly elevating a casual jeans and tee combo into something a little more elegant. And because stocking up on an entirely new collection of outfits and accessories for the new season is impractical for even the most dedicated of shoppers, we recommend turning to a fresh piece of jewelry to enhance your repertoire. Here are four jewelry trends currently dominating designer collections and a few of our favorite pieces in which to embrace them.
Whether you’re someone who dresses simply or a lover of the extravagant, when it comes to ear adornment this season, size matters. But this season’s styles go beyond the classic oversized hoops: instead, designers are revealing earrings in mixed materials that epitomize the idea that more-is-more, so we say update your jewelry collections accordingly. Enjoy your OTT earrings with a little color? Pichulik’s Bossa Nova Earrings marry the brand’s signature rope with Venetian glass and horn, and when worn together they create a visually mesmerizing composition. Team the set with a similarly OTT necklace and a neutral hued shirtdress for an understated yet vibrant fall get-up. If you’re looking to make an even bigger statement though, turn to Adele Dejak’s Lalla earrings and allow their gold-tone brass shade and shoulder-skimming forms to do all the talking.
Chokers have always felt like such a '90s staple and lucky for us, their reign has continued to endure. This season though, the most wanted iterations of the style are nothing if not maximalist, boasting the ability to elevate any party or daytime outfit all by itself without the help of any other jewels. For a piece that’s transformative, turn to Adele Dejak’s Bahati Almaz Choker—a handmade gold-tone metal collar that resembles armor rather than jewelry. Ami Doshi Shah’s Collar Necklace is another firm favorite. Made from a semi-circular brass tube that is spliced, splayed and then topped with a sprinkling of aventurine spheres, the piece looks absolutely regal worn along the collarbone and is best paired with an understated pared-down ensemble that’ll let the necklace shine.
If there were any time to embrace the power of the statement ring, it’s right now. From vintage-inspired bands fit with precious stones to enamel rings in every color of the rainbow, models at the FW ‘21 shows of Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, Schiaparelli, and more rocked these objets d’art on almost every finger, signaling that statement-making rings are here to stay. Hand-crafted from sterling silver and featuring either a Tsavorite Garnet or Pearl, Patrick Mavros’ Sea Urchin Starfish Ring is an understated choice that’s striking when worn alone or stacked with other Mavros rings. Looking to make an even bolder statement? Adele Dejak’s Tumi Spice Ring’s irregular, eye-catching design, oversized form, and luminous gold-tone finish render it fitting to serve as your sole fall ensemble accessory, its commanding nature suitably delivering on both sophistication and drama.
In case you missed it, colorful, beaded jewelry is officially back. From the high-end designers through to the high street giants, everywhere you look there are sweet beaded pieces that remind us of youthful summer holidays. But if you’re not quite ready to embrace the DIY-looking jewelry—friendship-esque bracelets that are all over Instagram, may we suggest turning to the more delicate creations of Sidai Designs? Their offerings include soft leather bracelets and necklaces embellished with glass beads, hoop earrings enriched by gold fill, beaded bars, and tassel earrings that graze the neck. Though subtle in color, when worn with a contrasting shade, their beaded styles are brought to life—resulting in a look that exudes power, beauty, and authority.
