Fall’s Hottest Jewelry Trends – Etsy

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak, peak, and post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the Fall’s Hottest Jewelry Trends article on the Etsy blog.

Fall’s Hottest Jewelry trends are: Clear concepts, Anklets Come Around Again, Sculpted Statement Pieces, Not-Your-Grandma’s Pearls, Grown-Up Friendship Bracelets, Everyday Opal, & Mix-And-Match Earrings.

Sculpted Statement Pieces

Not-Your-Grandma’s Pearls

Not-your-grandma’s pearls are a hot trend and these faux pearls are ideal to create statement jewellery pieces for the coming season!



Grown-Up Friendship Bracelets

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

Grown up friendship bracelets are one of Fall’s hottest jewelry trends. This set of two fabric bracelets is a perfect gift to share with your bestie! Both are the same pink and white fabric but each has a different trim, one has spikes and the other ruffles. Super fun!



Everyday Opal

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

An opal ring for everyday! Beautiful genuine Welo Ethipian opal stone set in a high quality Nunn design sterling silver plated ring band.



Mix-And-Match Earrings

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

My jewellery trend is mix and match earrings! These handmade paper bead earrings feature contrasting tassel colours in bright colours to contrast the hues of Autumn!

Opal Opulence

Contributor post by Sheila of BeadyEyedBird

You know that gorgeous, translucent, milky-colored stone filled with the light of a thousand colorful stars, shimmering like the aurora borealis? Opal, that is! We love it, and we know many of you do too. We asked what our CIJ Teamies what they might have/sell with opals or something similarly magnificent — and to tell us the story behind it.  Here’s what they said.

I went to the Kane County Flea Market yesterday, and Jim says I must of picked up every piece of glass opalescent that I saw. In my head, I think, look how beautiful. My sons call it my “squirrel moment.” You know the movie, UP? The dog is talking and then suddenly goes, “squirrel” losing his focus and chasing the squirrel.

This is a piece of blue opalescent from Northwoods. Made in America Northwoods was founded by Harry Northwoods in PA in the early 1900s. I can never pass this ice blue color up without admiring it.

I’m a fan of Mr. Northwoods. His colors are amazing and his designs are unique and beautiful.

This is Mother of Pearl yet it has an Opalescent Look. It is a great pin to Honor MOTHER. I opened my Etsy Shop in my Deceased Mother Pearl’s Name hence pearlsvintagebypam. I am hoping people will buy things to Honor Their Mother. Sometimes we just don’t know what to give our Moms.

I was drawn to the delicate design of this brooch! It took a little detective work, and the confirmation from another Etsy Shop owner, to identify the beads—they are Peking Glass.

Love, love, love opals! Their inherent dreamy colours always amaze me. I like to use man- made glass opals in my jewewllery designs and my latest earrings feature just the thing!
