Summer is coming to an end. Which means fall is officially upon us. But fall 2022 will be a little different than the last few. Many will be going back to school, returning to the workplace and planning fall outings with friends for the first time in a few years. That means being seen by a lot of people outside of their immediate family, the dog and cat. And being seen provides the perfect motivation to “dress to impress”; it’s a great chance to bring a touch of autumn to your wardrobe.
One of the easiest ways to do that is by following fall jewelry trends. As you dig out your boxes of sweaters, hoodies, jeans and long-sleeve shirts and begin to think about accessorizing, the right piece of jewelry could be the key to your fashion-forward fall. A way to not only match your ensemble and the trends of the season but to stand out in your own unique way.
To help prepare you for your awesome autumn premiere, we’ve did all the fashion research to find out the most popular styles for September through December. We had such a blast working on this one. From there, we compiled our list of 2022 Fall Jewelry Trends just for you. We invite you to check them out… and don’t miss our top pick for each trend!

What’s more refreshing than a bright bouquet of fresh flowers in the fall? Though usually associated with spring, vivid floral jewelry is bringing its inspiration to the autumn months.

Princess Cut Blue Crystal Centerpiece with Colored Crystals Chosen for Their Meeting
Au Naturel Jewelry
When we say “au naturel” we don’t mean nothing at all. Quite the contrary. We’ve been noticing the popularity of more jewelry designs that are inspired by nature: of the sea, of the earth, of the sky. Jewelry inspired by seashells, colorful stones, crystally sand, earthy textures and flowing bodies of water have brought “elements-based” designs to the forefront this fall.

Genuine Abalone Shell Inlay Adorned with a Sculpted Mermaid and 12 Crystals
It seems like hoop earrings never really go out of style. Makes sense since their design is innately classic and tends to go with most outfits. This fall, however, hoop fashion is moving from simple to more ornate. Flashier earrings or theme-based hoops are lending a powerful punch to the autumn months. The right pair could have you grinning from ear-to-ear.

Plated in 18K Gold with an Elvis Silhouette and 12 Sparkling Crystals
Known and revered for their rich symbolism, pearls are also lovely to look at, adding a touch of elegance to any jewelry design. Their shimmering, translucent beauty is ripe for autumn weather, casting a distinctive contrast against the grey skies of October and November. It’s a look that really stands out in necklaces, bracelets and rings and why it’s a definite trend for fall.
