Pantone Fall Trends of 2016 – 70’s Inspired Jewelry and Pearl Jewelry Trends

by Christopher Duquet

Fashion week has just ended in New York and our style council has passed some new declarations that will surely be the guide for all fashionistas and urban hipsters for this season. Here’s the lowdown in case you missed it…

One of the major determinations made each fashion week are the new colors of the season, for Fall 2016 it looks like the world is leaning to muted jewel tones reminiscent of the color palette of the 70s.

Stepping back a bit from neon brights of summer, these more earthy inspired colors look beautiful on skin tones of every type and offer a bit more freedom in terms of day-to-night fashion. Shoulder dusting earrings, layered necklaces, and chunky pearls combined with a cozy sweater is the epitome of what people will be wearing this season, and we just so happen to have a few pieces that will fit perfectly in your fall wardrobe.

Pumpkin Spice Gemstones and Layering Necklaces

Fall Trends 2016 Pantone Colors Christopher Duquet Terran Layered Look Pumpkin spiced everything is, as usual, taking the nation by storm. It’s no surprise as the warm, burnt orange earth tone is calming yet vibrant. Citrines and orange sapphires are a must see when searching for the perfectly pumpkin toned piece. Wearing such a dynamic color on a longer chain & layered with another piece encompassing similar color tones brings another layer of elegance to an already beautiful stone.

Rock those Pearls

You can exaggerate this layered styling even more with big pearls. Throughout history, pearls have always been a standout when it comes to femininity and beauty, but the stylistic approach to pearls has changed somewhat. Step away from the simple strand and let your wild side out this season with pearls of staggered sizes, and even shapes, to create a piece both dynamic and graceful to bring out the soft curves of your neckline and collar bones.

If necklaces aren’t your thing, have no fear, big shoulder dusting earrings are also hot this fall. Regardless of your outfit, a bold pair of earrings will carry you from morning to midnight.

Be the Trendsetter…

Trendsetter Fall Trends Christopher Duquet Custom Jewelry

Of course, we believe that jewelry represents your style more than any fashion trend ever could. You can restyle an existing piece or come up with a new design. Often we have our clients come in with a concept and after a session with one of our designers the concept starts to take shape. The inspiration may be taken from an existing trend and transform in a truly unique piece using an existing gemstone. Inspiration can even come from an old photograph where a timeless piece of jewelry long forgotten can be reborn. In the end, truly custom jewelry follows fashion’s best practices–rocking the style in your own way.
