Top 5 Jewelry Trends for Fall 2012

Fall always gets a bad wrap because it triggers that back to school feeling, end of Summer and the beginning of cold weather. But I have to say, it’s one of my favorite seasons. It’s beautiful and the fashion is always amazing! I want to share with you five jewelry trends that are hot for this Fall.

1. Gold – I’ve written previously about how yellow gold jewelry is very ‘in’ right now and I will repeat myself. Put on your yellow gold! It’s classic, it’s versatile and it’s very chic right now. If yellow gold really isn’t your thing then try out rose (pink) gold jewelry. It goes well with many skin tones and outfits. So ladies, leave the white gold & silver aside this year and strut around in yellow & rose gold.

2. Statement Pieces – Go big or go home this Fall! It’s no time to be shy with your baubles. In the necklaces department you’ve got bib necklaces, large pendants and chokers to stand out in. Chandelier earrings are big, beautiful and very feminine.

3. Layer Your Jewels – Layering bracelets is a must! I’m all for stacking bangles to make a bold statement. It’s a fun look that really grabs attention. But layering doesn’t have to end there…experiment with layering necklaces. Long and short pendants paired together. Big statement pieces paired with simple pendants. Play around with different looks to find the style that suits you best.

4. Colored Diamonds – Yes, we all know nothing compares to a sparkly white diamond BUT it’s time to embrace the rainbow of colors diamonds are available in. This Fall, try out chocolate diamonds (a favorite of our Facebook fans), green diamonds and blue diamonds.

5. Nature Inspired Jewelry – Nature-toned colors are always popular in Fall such as orange, brown and green. You can show off these colors with beautiful gemstones such as carnelian, smoky quartz and drusy jewelry. Add some leaf, feather and floral designs in your jewelry for a nature inspired look.

There you have it! These are some of favorite jewelry trends we’ll be rocking this Fall. Which of these will you be wearing?


Fleur de Lys Jewelry

Are you familiar with the Fleur-de-Lys symbol? It’s a uniquely designed lily flower used as a symbol associated with French royalty. It’s been seen in countless coat of arms and flags for centuries. Today, people are often using it as a decorative design in home decor, fashion and now even in jewelry.

Ice has a few Fleur-de-Lys jewelry pieces that our customers are raving about. One of the latest colored diamond trends right now is green diamonds which are found in several of our newest Fleur-de-Lys pieces. Pictured right you’ll see a green and white diamond pendant featuring the beautiful symbol. If you’re looking for more of a statement piece then you’ll love this Fleur-de-Lys ring with green, white AND red diamonds. Love the little red diamond accents in this piece. It’s a wide ring that will instantly grab attention without being too flashy. Gorgeous!

If green diamonds are not your thing, maybe you’ll fall in love with black diamonds like I have. Take a look at this black & white diamond Fleur-de-Lys ring and this stunning black diamond pendant.

Would you wear the Fleur-de-Lys symbol? Next time, you put on this symbol and someone asks what it is, don’t forget to say Fleur-de-Lys with a French accent, it makes it more fun to wear. ; )
