Fall Issue 2009

Fall into Fall Fashions!

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. The air gets crisp and cool. The leaves change from vivid greens to amber yellow, violent orange and deep burgundy. Time hastens and the days begin to rapidly grow shorter. It seems but a moment, and fall will be over.

Seize this time for yourself.

Take a moment this season to take advantage of the splendid colors created in nature and reflect their beauty in your fall wardrobe. Fall fashions are more influenced by the richness of the season than any other. Clothing styles, colors and jewelry capture the beauty and the latter is one of the easiest ways to update your look.

Gemstones are rich in variety and there are a myriad of jewels that beautifully mimic Fall's dazzling array of colors. Pair diamonds with spinel and emeralds for the transition from Summer to Fall; choose champagne diamonds, garnets, amber and citrine for a glow that reflects the season's warmth (despite the outside temperatures); and select crisp blue topaz, tanzanite and diamonds as Fall sneaks into Winter.

2009 Fall Jewelry Fashions

Everywhere you look this season, you're going to see bold color and bold design; it's all about drama and luxury in 2009. Unique gemstone combinations with warm, lustrous yellow and rose gold coupled with bold settings are the styles to select. You'll see lots of pieces with intricate detailing and lush accents to reflect the season's infinite beauty as well as sleek pieces with a more modern aesthetic. As always, the warmer tone gemstones like garnet, spinel, amber, citrine, emeralds, rubies and rhodolite will be seen in abundance.

2009 Fall Ring Styles

Rings are one of the easiest ways to accessorize this fall. Wrap yourself in warmth with luxurious knits, slinky leggings, over-sized slouchy boots and heavy, boldly designed rings. If you can't find the ring that's right for you, try shopping for men's rings, because you're sure to find a chunky design that piques your interest. Pieces with tapered bands and flat tops with midnight blue sapphires and garnets are perfect. This look is modern, dramatic and perfect for both day and night because it captures the essence of fall.

In addition to the heavier styles, the traditional cocktail style remains popular while abstract styles like golden nugget bands, druzy rough rings and channel set gemstone bands add a contemporary edge. This is also not a time to be shy. Wear several rings on each hand. Fall is about luxury and there's nothing more luxurious than pairing a few stacking rings one on top of the other.

In Hollywood, you'll find celebs wearing rings on both their fingers and strung from chains on their neck. For a look that is uniquely Fall, slip several rings onto a long chain and wear with a cowl style sweater. It's a look of pure opulence that's sure to turn heads.

2009 Fall Earrings Styles

Like rings, fall earring styles are there to make statement. Since you're going to be covered from head to toe as you adjust to the changing temperatures, earrings are an excellent way to add a touch of sexiness to any look. This Fall, dangling earrings that peak out from loose, wavy hair; gemstone button earrings paired with up do's and cluster styles are the trend.

When selecting your earrings, choose those rich in color. Look for gemstones like smoky topaz, pink tourmaline, amethyst, and dyed freshwater pearls. They are a perfect way to add some sophistication. You'll look like you spent a fortune, but you'll have plenty of spending money left over to buy a ring or bracelet to accent your new earrings.

2009 Fall Necklaces & Bracelets

Make an impact with statement pieces like a bib necklace and stacked bracelets. Oversized cocktail pendants set with precious gemstones like emeralds, rubies, or sapphires accented with white diamonds are a simple way to take your fashion to the next level. For the office, refresh your style with bangles in gold and pearl wrap bracelets.

Chain link is showing up in all types of jewelry, but predominantly with necklaces and bracelets. Buy several different lengths, metal colors and link sizes for the most fashionable look. By layering these pieces, you'll create a dynamic, dimensional look that's truly perfect for the fall season.
