J. Mills Studio·November 02, 2021
What’s in Store This Fall for Jewelry?
Fall is now in full swing and the holiday season is at our doorstep, which means that it’s time to take a closer look into what trends are driving the jewelry world. Quite notably, the fashion industry has a revived focus on the waist up, and yes, that means lots and lots of jewelry! Driven by an overall adaptation to life where virtual meetings are the status quo, designers have turned to both ornate and simple jewelry with functionality and versatility in order to maximize those pajama bottom, business on the top outfits.
Perhaps the greatest part about this year’s fall fashion focus on jewelry is that you don’t have to reinvent your wardrobe to freshen it up. Instead, finding a few versatile everyday pieces of jewelry is all you really need to update your look! With that being said, here are our top five favorite fall jewelry trends.
Gemstones and Crystals
What’s not to love about natural minerals, gemstones, and crystals? Apparently, the fashion industry feels the same way since one major trend we’ve noticed from designers this fall is an abundance of crystal and gemstone jewelry.
And while the fashion industry is focusing on stones, the beauty world continues to put self-care in the spotlight, drawing more people to add gemstones and crystals to their jewelry collection, such as turquoise for its potential healing powers and smoky quartz, known for its ability to soothe and calm.
Because of this trend of merging fashion and beauty with health, the functionality of gemstone and crystal jewelry is a hot commodity this fall that we think is going to continue well into the foreseeable future.
If you feel like you are in need of updating your look for the fall, try out layering, another jewelry trend that continues to take the fashion industry by storm this season. One of the easiest ways to achieve this look is by layering necklaces and chains that you already have in your collection, and perhaps a little freshening up by adding a new statement piece to the mix.
While layering done right involves intention and attention to detail, the understated simplicity of our hand-crafted necklaces, earrings, and rings means that layering your favorite Jmills pieces makes layering your jewelry a far less daunting task!
A Unique Take on Pearls
While pearl necklaces may be a timeless classic, this season the timeless classic is shifting towards a somewhat wabi-sabi aesthetic. Perfectly shaped spheres are either being swapped for odd-shaped pearls with elegant designs that add a touch of interest, or we are seeing the incorporation of pearls in a distinctive and modern way, such as this solo Keishi Pearl Necklaceor this Grey Pearl and Moonstone Necklace. Delicate and dainty, these gorgeous necklaces would make a great statement piece for fall!
Modern Chains and Long Strands
Runways this fall were overflowing with timeless, versatile pieces like long strands, modern chains, and pearls, making this 36" Forged Oval and Chain Necklace with Coin Pearl Drop a must-have for the fashion-forward this autumn season. This piece, which we call the “Sexy Pro” is incredibly versatile, can be styled in many ways and dressed up or down, depending upon your mood, your outfit, and the occasion; it’s like having several necklaces in one!
