Fall Winter Fashion Trends

 A few fall apparel trends worth noting will have an impact on jewelry. Black and white continues to be a very strong statement for fall
 For fine jewelry, this is a moment to seize. Black and white is one of the most classic, enduring combinations for luxury jewelry, offering the irresistible temptation of something expensive that actually will be in style forever. The look can be done at all price points, of course, whether it’s silver with enamel or black and white diamonds in platinum, making it probably the most versatile trend ever for jewelers who want to sell to women of all ages and budgets'  

Slim classics at Ferragamo,. The turtleneck continues to be important next fall; note the use of longer pendant necklaces to accessorize it.

 And while emerald green may be the Pantone Color of the Year, fashion designers are seeing the world in a slightly more olive tone—aka loden or army green. With its yellow undertone, it takes gold very well. Winter white also made big news, and it’s a perfect backdrop for any kind of fine jewelry.

The pendant consists of a slice of a rainbow crystal geode druzy with crystal points, polished,and set in a Sterling Silver bezel, with bezel set peridot gemstones from Secret Garden Gems Natural Collections

Geode Jewelry
Geodes start their lives as a hollow bubble inside a layer of rock. The bubble could be from air inside explosive volcanic rock or it could come from the hollow remains of animal burrows or tree roots.  Most geodes have interiors made of either quartz or calcite. Quartz crystals are silicates.
