Fall Jewelry 2015
Harper’s Bazaar editor Nicole Fritton included a rough-hewn Railroad Spike ring by Giles & Brother in her November “Editor’s Picks.” A street-wise take on Cartier’s famous Juste en Clou (Just a Nail) collection, it’s shown with lots of military khaki and gold-buttoned-denim. You can nail this terrific look for only $65 at gilesandbrother.com.
In the same issue, cover girl Sarah Jessica Parker counts an 18K gold and diamond band by Inez and Vinoodh (above right) among her favorite things. Hollywood A-listers can certainly afford the $7,075 price tag at net-a-porter.com, but we found something even more star-worthy (left) for only $56.99 at amazon.com.
Girls and Their Pearls
Classic yet on-trend in fall jewelry, the ladylike pearl and diamond studs (left) have been featured in Glamour and InStyle ($590 at gabrielandco.com). Accessories editors suggest wearing them for day and night, office to dinner dates. Keep everyone guessing with these lookalike faux pearl and Swarovski crystal studs (right), available at overstock.com for only $66.99.
Should I Shoulder?
Editors agree: Fall 2015’s big neckline style is off-the-shoulder, one-shoulder and cold-shoulder (peek-a-boo shoulder cutouts). These provocative looks compete with statement necklaces, so choose statement earrings instead: either drop-style, asymmetrical, or sparkly chandeliers. We found knockout blue crystal danglers at macys.com for only $24.
The Wall Street Journal has predicted “The Return of the Cocktail Ring.” These extravagant baubles are oh-so-eighties and back with a vengeance. Editorial spreads feature several 14K gold cocktail rings per hand, sometimes worn over gloves. We like the rose-gold-tone Corona ring, $42, and Two-finger Peace Maker ring, $42, from the Olivia Palermo Collection for baublebar.com.
