While fall lacks the pastel delight of spring, the brilliance of summer, and the cool, dark hermitage of winter, it’s a season that evokes its own unique jewelry combinations. The changing of the leaves and the foods and festivals of the harvest season inspire autumnal shades of soft oranges, gentle metallic colors, and dull reds—as well as inspiration from fall’s favorite flavor: pumpkin spice.
Below, we’ll be taking a look at some of the fall-friendly earrings offered by Albert’s Diamond Jewelers, the premier jewelry retailer in the Chicagoland area. These pieces have been selected not simply for their color-appropriateness, but also for their “thematic” relation to September, October, and November; and how well they might fit with the festive mood of the third season of the year:
1. Pandora January Droplets (Garnet Earrings 290738GR)
Okay, so these stud earrings from Pandora have the word “January” in their description, but let’s set that aside for right now! The fact is that these studs are made with garnet — and while garnet is the birth stone for Capricorns the world over, the autumnal orange-redness of these precious stones brings to mind the changing leaves that blanket the ground during the penultimate three months of the year. Set in brilliant sterling silver, it’s almost like the leaves of these studs are falling on an icy pond.
2. Kabana Riviera Earring (GECF201MMS)
Speaking of leaves, these hoop earrings from Kabana immediately remind the viewer of falling leaves — even the color of the stones have the color variation that comes with the season’s favorite natural phenomenon. Made of mother-of-pearl, and spiny oyster stones (with diamond accents), there’s a kind of natural smoothness and delicateness that comes with organic stones. These are the perfect earrings to wear to either a Thanksgiving dinner or to a fashion-friendly Halloween party with friends.
3. Tacori Champagne Sunset Earring (FE624)
A famous Southern author once wrote: “in August … there’s a few days somewhere about the middle of the month when suddenly there’s a foretaste of fall, it’s cool, there’s a lambence, a soft, a luminous quality to the light, as though it came not from just today but from back in the old classic times.” These Tacori earrings are named after the kind of elegant light that comes around so rarely any time of the year other than in fall. These Tacori Champagne Sunset earrings are a mix of 18k white gold and 18k rose gold, meaning that there’s a seasonally-appropriate melange of colors at play when you wear these earrings; and the stunning abstract design made from diamonds brings to mind the bare branches that come about at the end of fall.
