Steeped in centuries of tradition, hand-forged sterling silver jewelry—from delicately carved drop earrings to knuckle rings adorned with classic motifs—makes a bold statement no matter the season. With fall fast approaching, chunky knits and oversized silhouettes in monochromatic palettes are the perfect blank canvases to display textured chains, pendants, and rings that are quickly becoming the most coveted accessories of the season.
Explore four different ways silver jewelry can complement fall styles and how to incorporate the timeless trend in your everyday look.
Silver With A Story
The artists represented on Miray Collections go beyond presenting versatile, aesthetically pleasing pieces. Their work tells stories through jewelry. From patterns and motifs familiar to Armenians around the world, such as pomegranates, the Armenian alphabet, Noah’s Ark, and Mount Ararat, each piece of jewelry allows the wearer to create visual interest with their accessories and share their cultural heritage in beautiful ways.
Gone are the days of uniformity and color-matched accessories. The true beauty of precious metal jewelry becomes apparent when the colors collide. Don’t be afraid to experiment with two-tone jewelry and mixing and matching silver, yellow gold, and rose gold jewelry to create a multi-dimensional look. There are no rules when it comes to this chic style strategy. If the idea of creating a tri-tone look intimidates you, start simple and build as you start feeling more comfortable with this trend.
The Art of Layering
From mixing and matching layers of chunky chain necklaces in varying widths and links to creating arm parties with both bangles and more delicate bracelets, fashion girls, bloggers, and Instagram influencers everywhere are pairing multiple pieces of silver jewelry in fun ways. The trick is to start with a statement piece as a base and build on it with complementary pieces. As you get more comfortable with the idea of layering your silver jewelry, think creatively about styles and textures and feel free to incorporate different details like charms and beads. The art of layering jewelry ensures that you create a unique look that communicates your personal style and mood every time. And as the general rule of accessorizing goes: put together your entire look and take off one piece just before you leave the house. This ensures that you properly edit your look and stay true to your intended aesthetic.
While precious metal jewelry has the power to make an impact on its own, colored stones and vibrant designs enhance the natural beauty and impact of silver pieces. Beyond injecting a whimsical sheen and elevating the glam factor of your look, colored stones and semi-precious gems add complementary colors that draw the eye and enhance the overall look of your fall fashions. Zirconia, pearls, and other natural stones in blues, greens, and reds further enhance the earth tones that come out of hibernation in the autumn months. Pressed flowers and floral motifs also create stunning visuals set against the backdrop of natural hues. Mix and match colors and textures to create a unique look that will define your fall style!
