1. Gold Jewelry– Gold is very hot at the moment. Classic, versatile, and very chic, gold is the jewelry of the season. If you’re not really into gold, then try rose gold, which has a pink color to it. It compliments a variety of skin tones and clothing. Ladies, forget about the white gold and silver and parade around in yellow and rose gold instead.

2. Go for the Statement Pieces– Either go all out or don’t go at all. This is not the time for shyness in bauble selections. As far as necklaces go, you can’t really go wrong with large pendants, bib necklaces, or chokers. These pieces will help separate you from the mundane and uninteresting. If you really want to make a statement, express yourself full force with chandelier earrings, as their size, beauty, and femininity will easily help you stand out from the crowd.

3. Jewels Are Better in Layers– It is almost mandatory that you layer your bracelets. Stacking bangles will make a strong, bold statement. It easily draws excitement, which is an excellent attention grabber. But why stop there? Innovate, experiment. Layering necklaces is also a good idea. Pair together necklaces of different sizes, be it long or short – those pendants that shout to the crowd and those more demure, quiet pieces. Be creative, innovative, and original. Find that look that says “You”.

5. Pick Out Some Jewelry Inspired by Nature – You can’t go wrong with natured colored tones in these delightful autumn months. The most prevalent colors are orange, brown and green, representative of the color of leaves, the barks of trees, and the color of nature itself. Express yourself with nature’s colors with gorgeous gemstones like the beautiful carnelian, drusy jewelry, and  smoky quartz. Leaves, feathers, and floral designs add appeal to your jewelry, giving it a more nature-inspired look.
