With colder weather fast approaching, we’ve swapped sandals for sweaters – which also means it’s time for an accessory adjustment as well. A change of season is a good reminder to switch up both our wardrobe and our go-to jewellery items.

Of course there is always a place for our most meaningful, timeless pieces. And there are plenty of sustainable and economical ways to update your collection without going overboard.

Yet, winter is our longest season and can also be the dreariest, so there is no better time to add bright new bling than when we have to bundle up! Especially with the holidays on the horizon.

Fall jewellery trends for 2020

Here are the top trends for the current fall and upcoming winter season. Consider it inspiration as you start to think about what you might like to add to your holiday wish list!

Tubular, Fringe and Bib Necklaces

Scarves aren’t the only accessory to wear around your neck this season. This is a more substantial take on the choker trend that can pair just as nicely with a chunky knit sweater as a long dress. These heavy metal necklaces rest right on the collarbone and make enough of a statement to be worn on their own.

Lot 397: A Topaz, Diamond and Gold Necklace

Lot 260: A Ruby, Diamond, Silver and Gold Necklace

Lot 389: A Diamond and White Gold Necklace


Reimagined pearls

Pearls continue to endure this year as designers keep coming out with inventive new ways to wear them. This is your chance to get creative with a classic, layering strings of pearls in varying lengths or even pairing different shapes and sizes together, as seen on many high fashion runways throughout 2020.

Lot 296: A South Sea Cultured Pearl, Diamond and White Gold Bangle Bracelet

Lot 404: A Cultured Pearl, Diamond and Pink Gold Necklace

Lot 198: A South Sea Cultured Pearl, Gem-set and Gold Ring


Statement gemstones

Bigger is certainly better this season when it comes to gems. If you have a vintage cocktail ring that stays in your jewellery box, this is the time to pull it out and show it off. Or, have fun with colourful stones that are sure to add dazzle to your holiday looks this season. If it sparkles, it’s in style!

Lot 63: A Sapphire, Diamond and Platinum Ring

Lot 157: An Emerald, Diamond and Platinum Ring

Lot 213: A Purple-Pink Sapphire, Diamond and Gold Ring


Retro punk

There is something about the coziness and colours of fall that can make us feel wistful, which might explain the throwback trends we are seeing this season. From artsy geometric pieces reminiscent of the funky 70s to more edgier pieces indicative of the punky 80s, express yourself with the look of the decade that speaks to you!

Lot 34: A Gem-Set and Gold Bangle Bracelet, Karl Stittgen

Lot 189: A Gold ‘Trouble’ Pendant, Boucheron

Lot 202: An Opal, Diamond and Gold Pendant/Brooch, Cavelti


Chain links and charms

Another nostalgic nod to classic pieces of the past, chain link jewellery complete with a designer take on the sentimental charm continues to be on trend this year. From shells to pearls to branded logo charms, mixed metals and bright colours, there is a charm for every style to adorn necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Chain belts have even made a comeback on the runway!

Lot 6: A Gold Charm Bracelet

Lot 203: A Gold Necklace

Lot 131: A Lapis Lazuli and Gold Bracelet


Oversized earrings

Perfect for winter, statement earrings can be the one accessory that lets you stand out while you’re covered up! Even if you’re bundled from head to toe, these standout earrings show off your style, from sculptural shapes to shoulder-grazing danglers.
