This summer was hot, hot, hot, and there’s no signs of it cooling quite yet, even as we move into fall. The same can be said for the jewelry looks ready to ride into autumn. Get a head start on sharing these styles with your customers now—they’re equally fit for a late summer self-purchase as they are for a holiday gift.
As layering necklaces and pendants still dominate, one of the biggest categories to add to the neck party is the initial pendant and nameplate necklaces. Further personalization is strong, too, with styles that allow engraving to celebrate milestone moments in life like births and weddings. A simple birthstone pendant counts for this category, too, as do the zodiac styles so beloved by many at the moment.
Petite Engagement Rings
Take a spin through any engagement hashtag on Instagram (#isaidyes is a particularly popular one), and you might notice something about many of the engagement rings: they’re tiny! Years ago, these are the styles that would have been considered “promise rings,” and they seem to be trending among brides-to-be at the moment. Will the classic four-prong, round brilliant diamond at a carat or larger bite the dust? Of course not. But taking stock of your delicate, half-carat or smaller styles may appeal to those on the hunt for such a thing, and they make great stacking bands for fashion, too.
Linear Drop Earrings
Sleek, long drop earrings will be moving in on the summer’s easygoing hoops, in an array of styles and colors. From the stick to the stiletto, swingy tiered styles and oblong shapes, these are fall’s best jewels for getting dressed this year.
From the smallest studs and huggie earrings to big pendants and cocktail rings, black diamond jewelry is the moody, mystical must-have this fall. It pairs well with anything and everything, and brings a hint of drama to even the brightest styles. We won’t say they’re just for Halloween and Black Friday, but those ARE some excellent theme ideas for your displays.
What makes a gem “gemmy,” you ask? Rich, luscious color, saturated hues, deep, quenching depths you could practically swim in. There is no limit on gemstone type, shape, or size, but varieties that feel particularly eligible for the title include tourmaline, emerald, topaz and garnet.
