Fall Fashion: Jeweled Necklaces

August 25, 2008

In Style has a great story on Fall trends, and they are focusing on bold jeweled necklaces for the upcoming season. Whether these accessories are made from semi-precious colored gems, less expensive simulated stones or even real diamonds, the focus is more on the design itself than how expensive the materials are. I’m really loving the knotted necklace above by Philip Crangi. Although made of rhinestones, it still has that old Hollywood glamour look that is so in right now. 
Next, In Style focused on a stunning piece by Nina Ricci. I love the different crystal shapes cut into bold facets, and I also love the smokey grays, blues and purples chosen for the necklace. Set in galvanized metal, it kind of reminds me of stained glass, and it could look great dressed up or down. 
I also like this detailed necklace by Thea Grant. The flower motif feels very mid-century to me, and the effect of hanging some of the accents makes it feel like an updated charm necklace. 
If you’re looking for a few bold jeweled necklaces for fall, here two great suggestions:
Willis 14-karat gold necklace with rose quartz, aquamarine and purple quartz. Chunky without being overdone, this piece utilizes the natural inclusions in the stones and lets the imperfections shine. 
Judith Leiber Gold-Plated 3-Row Crystal collar. Baguettes and oval-cut crystals allow this showy piece to come in at a great price.
