As much as you may not want to think about it, fall will be here in a flash, and that means switching up your wardrobe to match the cooler weather. However, you don’t need to pack up your summer styles just yet! In fact, you may be able to wear many of them well into the autumn just by switching up your jewelry and accessories. From bold gold bracelets to pendants that pack a punch, here’s a sampling of jewelry styles that will pair marvelously with your summer ensembles, and make them more than ready for the season to come.
A Cuff bracelet
If the airy look of thin layer bangles epitomizes the carefree attitude of summer, than substantial gold cuff bracelets are the perfect way to signify that the time for weightier fall styles is approaching. The 14K White Gold Cuff Bracelet is a go-anywhere example with its timelessly classy look. This simply yet exquisitely crafted cuff is made of solid 14K white gold and is polished to high shine, giving it a look that’s pulled together, bold and timelessly sophisticated. It’s a piece you’ll pull out fall after fall.
Silver cuff bracelets offer a range of eye-catching styles that are perfect for the transition to fall. For instance, the Antiqued Oval Turquoise Cuff Bracelet has an outgoing personality with a bit of southwestern flair. A total of 30 oval-shaped turquoises adorn this cuff, working in unity to create a medallion-like design that instantly catches the eye with its abundance of teal beauty. The largest of these semiprecious gems is 15mm high and sits in the center of this design inside two concentric ovals of smaller gems.
Hoop earrings fall under the category of classic pieces that belong in every jewelry collection. Their incredibly versatile style gives any outfit a chic upgrade and allows them to serve as excellent season-spanning pieces.
A pair of white gold hoop earrings can give a summer look a more sophisticated feel, and the 1 3/8″ 14K White Gold Hoop Earrings are excellent picks. These 2mm-thick hoops are big enough to be noticed, but not too big for everyday wear. Or, if you’d like to go with a slightly warmer metal that’s trending this season, try the slightly larger 1 5/16″ Diameter 14K Rose Gold Hoop Earrings. At 2.75mm thick and a little over an inch and a half from top to bottom, this pair provides the perfect combination of enduring class and spot-on style.
A Bold Cocktail Ring
A daring gemstone ring is another great pick right now, especially when you choose a gemstone in one of this fall’s top hues. Although pink is traditionally thought of as a spring color, pink topaz rings are excellent options for this fall. Pink is a top color for the upcoming season, and a bright pick like the Pink Topaz and Diamond Cocktail Ring in 14K White Gold is an eye-catching, on-trend addition to your transitional look. An oval-shaped pink topaz, 10mm high and 8mm wide, is the star of this style, giving this piece a big burst of color that’s girly yet glamorous. Surrounding this gem is a frame of two dozen small round diamonds, while 10 additional diamonds stud the 14K white gold band.
An emerald ring is another great summer-to-fall pick. Although emerald has been the color of the year for the better part of a year, it’s especially big this fall. Try the Mythical Emerald Ring in 14K White Gold for a look that could have been pulled directly from the pages of an ancient legend. A unique claw-like setting holds a 6mm round emerald in this vintage filigree-like design, giving it a storybook quality that’s hard to ignore.
Rich red tones are always excellent fall picks and once again, they’re big this fall, making garnet rings yet another good way to add a touch of fall to your summer styles. For instance, the Victorian Emerald-Cut Garnet Ring in 14K White Gold adds a bold splash of deep crimson glimmer to your finger, as well as a touch of vintage charm. An emerald-cut garnet measuring a full centimeter high is the focal point of this ring and it’s surrounded by a frame-like setting of 14K white gold that’s been meticulously carved with a floral motif.
Replacing summer’s airy chains and featherweight scarves with a bold necklace can make a summery dress or blouse seem perfectly fitting for fall, and Apples of Gold’s collection of silver necklaces contains a number of eye-catching options. For example, the Garnet Necklace in Sterling Silver combines eight garnets in three shapes with polished sterling silver to create a style that dangles around your neck with abundant rich red sparkle.
If you’d prefer to group your summer-to-fall ensemble with a piece that provides a reminder of the waning season with a touch of whimsy, try the Sterling Silver Anchor Pendant with Labradorite Accent. This nautically-inspired pendant is depicts a silver anchor, 1 ½” high and studded with a 9mm labradorite. An iridescent variety of the mineral feldspar, this stone provides a little touch of shimmer to a piece that will anchor any outfit for autumn. A 19” sterling silver chain is included, making this piece ready to slip around your neck.
The details make all the difference when you’re moving from one season to another. For instance, a breezy sundress is ready for a summer beach party when worn with flip-flops and a stack of thin bangles; but, when that same dress is paired with a statement necklace, a cardigan and boots, it’s perfectly fit for fall. The right jewelry and accessories can actually stretch your wardrobe and help you make the most of the pieces you have—not to mention allow you to wear your favorite summer styles as the days get shorter.
Switching up your jewelry can instantly take your outfit from one season to another, and these jewelry picks are excellent ways to bridge the gap between summer and fall.
