It was wonderful to talk through the fall trends this year with Beth Ann Clyde of LI Pulse magazine – she did an article that appears below:
From statement to understated, the jewelry trend forecast is all over the map. Let Esther Fortunoff of Fortunoff Fine Jewelry help you sift through the bangles, cuffs, silver and gold.
Multiband and Stacking Rings
“The ring stacking trend is not new, but it is certainly here to stay.” This season, multiband rings are taking the guesswork out of getting ready to go out and providing another way to achieve levels of interest with a single piece.
Fortunoff’s silver ring set will add a little extra sparkle on a big night. The texture and understated gems on the stacking set of gold and gemstone rings make them perfect for a day at work that you know will end in happy hour.
Statement Cuffs and Bracelets
Bangles, bracelets and cuffs were all over the runways during fashion week. Expect to see multi-strand bracelets and wide hinged cuffs in various metals, with and without gems. “For fall, you really can’t go wrong because they stand up to the bold patterns of the clothes.” The open waves on Fortunoff’s Wavy Wire Cuff Bracelet add a fun element of surprise that won’t get lost against the dark floral-printed skirts people will be wearing this fall.
Minimalists will love this one: geometric jewelry with defined shapes and angles are en vogue. Often petite and understated, these pieces are cool without trying too hard and are office and date-night appropriate. “Designers are also playfully balancing negative and positive space.” Rock the trend yourself by donning this rose gold pendant.
Return to Yellow Gold
Time to break out of that silver-and-white-metal rut. “Yellow gold is having a moment right now. Some of the petite pave set diamonds will stand out against the yellow gold, and bold new designs are coming from the influence of the 70s and 80s.” We love the oval shapes and double chain on this eye-catching gold necklace, available at Fortunoff Fine Jewelry. Let it makes its statement and keep the good 70s vibes going by pairing with a t-shirt and wide-legged jeans.
Earrings will shine more than ever this year. From tiny sparkly studs to threaders in front-and-back styles, there’s no wrong way to go. “Large and small earrings may be worn together and the proliferation of multiple piercings allows for over-the-top creativity.” One of Fortunoff’s favorite is an elegant back-and-front 18-karat yellow gold earrings with pave diamonds.
