#1. Earrings Long AF
It’s as though the fall 2019 jewelry trends lead to a competition to see who could make the longest pair of earrings, and there were some great entries. From Prabal Gurung, a chain of pearly hoops made for gorgeous earrings. The earrings ended in pearl-covered tassels at the bottom, and were long enough to nearly reach the elbow!
#2. Delicate Danglies
Extra-long earrings can be fun, but for most of us a pair of delicately dangly earrings might be more practical. Long (but not overly so) earrings made of shimmery strings or drops of metal are timelessly gorgeous, and are able to work with both daytime looks and evening wear.
These long, dangling earrings were the perfect fit for the pretty collection of evening wear at Cushnie. Made of silver with just a small lightning shape at the top, they were as pretty as can be. Silver was also the color of choice at Lemaire, where simple but beautiful dangly earrings were shaped like long drops.
#4. Single Earring
Symmetry was not necessary or recommended this fashion month. Wearing only one earring was one of the ways to eschew symmetry in the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. Wearing one earring is also a great way of rocking something beautiful and blingy in a non-gendered, and if we may add, it’ll make you feel a little pirate-y, too.
Tory Burch proved that a single earring could be ultra-feminine, with models wearing elongated earrings covered in gems only on one ear. There was all manner of earrings on display at 3.1 Phillip Lim, but our best example of a model only wearing one earring was actually also a longer one threaded with gems.
Tassels are a fun way of adding a slightly bohemian vibe to any look, especially when they decorate the head one each side in the form of earrings. We saw tasseled jewelry show up on runways with all kinds of different styles, showing that they can actually be quite versatile.
Beaded tassels at Saint Laurent jazzed up an overall darker-toned runway. In gold and yellow, tassels were the perfect ornamentation on long necklaces and dangle earrings. Tasseled earrings at Lanvin added fun pops of color to the few black and white outfits on the runway.
The most unique tassel earrings we spotted were on the Stella McCartney runway – the shoulder-dusting tassels were made of chains of paper clips that were linked together, likely representing how important reusing and upcycling is for the designer herself.
#6. Dripping with Rhinestones
Is there anything more glamorous than a cascade of rhinestones along the wrist, décolletage, or side of the neck? Rhinestone-studded jewels made for some of the most luxurious and striking fall 2019 runway accessories.
At Christian Siriano, a thick choker was absolutely covered in shiny rhinestones, with another rhinestone-covered strap hanging down below to draw attention to a low neckline.
At both Paco Rabanne and Loewe, models wore large earrings with a rhinestone-covered fringe lining the bottom of the main embellishment. Christopher Kane, Brandon Maxwell, and Esteban Cortazar had some of the other runways replete with rhinestones.
#7. Boho-Chic Accessories
The fall/ winter 2019 jewelry trends have, by and large, shifted away from the hippie stylings of the previous season, even if designers are embracing a much more eco-conscious mentality. This is why, perhaps, the few bohemian offerings stand out to us so much.
Stella McCartney gets points for jewelry that was bright and fun, but also sustainable. We’ve already mentioned upcycled paper clip earrings, but we also loved necklaces decorated with colorful rubber bands, and hoop earrings with colorful leftover yarn twisted around them for a softer texture.
At Lanvin, jewelry fit the aesthetic; there were the previously mentioned colorful tassel earrings, as well as medallion earrings set in a colorful base that could have been taken straight out of a North African bazaar. The boho-vibe at Ann Demeulemeester also included some Americana, with long feather necklaces, and multiple though delicate chains.
Lastly, at Jacquemus, we saw super boho-chic wood and net earrings in a square shape that hung as low as the shoulders.
#8. Mismatched Earrings
Having models wear a different earring on each ear is a great way of cementing the asymmetrical fall 2019 jewelry trends, but it can also be a great way of showcasing as much jewelry as possible, and to tell a story with a pair of earrings.
The mismatched earrings at Carolina Herrera certainly matched in aesthetic. Both earrings were golden and embellished with large ball-shaped beads, though on one side the beads were threaded through hoops and on the other through two pins. It was all about the gold at Zimmermann as well, as models wore mismatched thick hoops or chain-link earrings.
When models did wear two earrings at 3.1 Phillip Lim, there was no rhyme or reason – a shorter, gold and silver earring made of two u-shapes on one side, and a long, dangly beaded silver earring on the other. Other runways where models wore mismatched earrings included Givenchy, Adeam, Tory Burch, and Hellessy.
It’s always exciting to see what kind of new takes on hoop earrings we will see every season. For the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends hoop earrings were anything but simple and delicate.
The variety of hoops at Ulla Johnson was quite extensive, though the reigning metal color was undoubtedly gold. From latch back earrings with multiple hoops to quite a few hoop earrings decorated with dangly beads or a golden fringe, it was hard to miss the loud, boho-chic earrings.
We saw a punk take on hoop earrings at Gypsy Sport, where spikes were threaded through the hoops for an extra edge. Hoop earrings at Area were as embellished as could be. A few pairs of beaded hoops were filled on the inside with beaded netting, reminding us of dreamcatchers.
Models at Jonathan Simkhai wore thick silver hoop earrings – sometimes even two in each ear!
#10. Badass Chokers
Studs, metal, and black leather are a few of the elements you can expect out of the badass chokers that cropped up in the fall 2019 runway jewelry. Unsurprisingly, these chokers showed up on runways that already had a punk or grunge vibe, where they perfectly completed an edgy ensemble.
The collection at Alexander McQueen was as punk as can be, with combat boots and chains everywhere. Chokers fit in easily, with most models wearing dark metal chokers with some subtle detailing.
Chokers also fit in well with the S&M vibes of the Alexandra Rich collection, in which a variety of leather chokers was presented – something with more typical fetish elements like hoops for a chain, and others more romantic with crystal-covered pendants or pearls hanging from them.
Of course, the choker trend wouldn’t be complete without some spikey options, which showed up on the wacky runways of Marques’Almeida and Gucci. The Marques’Almeida chokers were quite pretty, made of gold leather with gold-covered spikes, while at Gucci the chokers were more intense. They were quite wide, covering the whole length of the neck, and were densely covered with long, dangerous-looking spikes.
#11. Shiny Chokers
While all the dark and spiky chokers were quite badass, there was also room in the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends for bejeweled chokers to fit the aesthetic of those who are less dark or edgy.
From Versace, for example, we saw both ultra-shiny golden chokers studded with jewels, and more understated golden chokers either made of a small chain with a gold V pendant, or made of geometric rectangular links. Chokes at Halpern were on the thicker side, covering the bulk of the neck, and featuring rows upon rows of large, square jewels.
#12. Go Logo
You can always trust that a few designers will want to showcase their label, because what’s the point of wearing designer jewelry if people don’t know? It was all about the B-pendants at Balenciaga, which were large and attention-grabbing as they hung off of chunky silver chain necklaces.
The branded jewelry was part of a really cheeky series of accessories at Moschino that celebrated consumerism and capitalism. The Moschino logo showed up on all kinds of jewelry items, right next to dollar signs and other markers of wealth.
Lastly, there’s Chanel, a brand that is big on logos because they know exactly that’s what their audience demands. From CC earrings to neckerchiefs with “CHANEL” spelled out in little jewels, we can’t think of a more logo-heavy runway.
#13. Colorful Gemstones
For the fall/ winter 2019 jewelry trends we saw oversized, nearly overwhelming pieces studded with colorful gems. Colorful gemstones might feel like the stuff of costume jewelry, but if all the world is a stage, then why not rock them?
One of the most extreme and showiest runways this season was Moschino, where Jeremy Scott went with a “more is more” mentality. Models wore oversized gold chain necklaces that were embellished with massive gems in all colors of the rainbow.
The colorful jewelry at Dolce & Gabbana was quite restrained (by Dolce & Gabbana standards, at least), with only one color of massive gemstone used per set of necklace and earrings. Some models wore jewels with blue gemstones, while others wore green.
#14. Safety Pins
If you never had a friend in high school that liked to attach safety pins to their bracelets or stick them in their ears instead of earrings, then you had a super boring upbringing. There is nothing more punk than rocking safety pins instead of traditional jewelry, and since this season was as punk as can be, this was one of the fall 2019 jewelry trends.
Miuccia Prada presented a darker collection than usual that for the most part was low on jewelry, although a large safety pin brooch over the heart made for an interesting symbol. We’ve already mentioned how punk the Alexander McQueen and R13 runways were this year, so safety pins hanging from multi-chain necklaces were no surprise on either runway.
Donatella Versace also presented an extra grunge collection (although in a neon-colored palette to fit with the signature Versace style), with oversized safety pin brooches that were actually glammed up a bit with the addition of jewels.
#15. Other Object Jewelry
In addition to safety pins, designers took inspiration from other non-jewelry items to craft unique creations that weren’t necessarily punk or grunge. On the cuter side of things, we have Balenciaga repping Paris, with miniature Eiffel Towers and Arcs de Triomphe decorating rings and earrings.
There were lots of super cool earrings at Jacquemus, with some of the coolest being a series of folded handkerchiefs hanging from metal clips attached to ball-stud earrings.
#16. Wild Multi-Chain Necklaces
We saw all manner of chains show up as part of the fall 2019 accessory trends, but one of our favorites was the way that different stylists layered different kinds of chains together to create a chunky look that was a little wild.
At Marni, chains in silver and gold were mixed together into one look, with each necklace or choker being a chain with differently shaped and sized chain links for a truly textured effect.
For the grungy R13 runway models were styled with layers upon layers of chains. Some of the chain necklaces were adorned with different charms, while in some cases they were joined by long ropes of pearls, leading to a wild look.
The multi-chain look at Chanel was a little more elegant, with a single necklace being comprised of different chains and ornamented at the ends with large hanging gems. Other runways where models were styled with multi-chain jewelry included Marine Serre, Nicole Miller, Alexander McQueen, and more.
#17. Twisted Jewelry
There was a modern art vibe to some of the fall 2019 jewelry we saw on the runways this season, which were made of metal that was worked and twisted into fluid shapes.
Both at Acne Studios and House of Holland, we saw hoop earrings made of a thicker metal that looked as though they had been twisted and shaped away from their round shape into something more artistic.
Pearl-studded earrings at Peter Pilotto looked as though they were made of multiple loops that had been twisted around each other to make for a bulky, knotted design. There was also a knotted effect on jewelry at Roksanda, which looked as though long gold bars had been twisted in all kinds of different knotted and zig-zag shapes.
#18. Dramatic Brooches
Big, shiny, and just a little retro, brooches were one of the most fun of the fall 2019 jewelry trends. In our minds, brooches are a somewhat dated accessory, but all that is old becomes new again, and brooches do feel like they fit in with the cozy, grandmotherly aesthetic that some designers revelled in this season.
Oversized, colorful brooches at Toga gave a splash of color and glam to oversized, minimalist outfits, and helped to soften a very masculine collection. Cozy chic was certainly the vibe at J.W. Anderson, where a large, rhinestone-covered brooch gave a clam touch to a striped, layered outfit.
The most extreme was the first look at R13, where the lapels of an oversized plaid blazer were totally covered in a mixture of shiny brooches.
#19. Industrial Chain Necklaces
There is no better way to emulate ‘90s era grunge than by using industrial materials as jewelry. Heavy-duty chains were worn as necklaces on multiple runways, making for one of the more hardcore fall/ winter 2019-2020 accessory trends, and also one of the jewelry trends that will be easiest to mimic at home on the cheap.
A bike-chain style choker at Alyx looked extra tough, particularly because of a bulky lock sitting right at the base of the neck. At Tod’s, a thick wallet-chain with a black leather detail was worn around models’ necks, giving an industrial edge to cozier outfits. Thick metal chains were also paired with cozy sweaters at Anrealage, although the shininess of the metal made for a slightly more luxurious piece.
#20. Big Luxury Chain Links
As much as we liked the industrial chains of the fall 2019 jewelry trends, we also appreciated the elegance that large, more ornamental chain links could have. Jewelry designers crafted necklaces and earrings out of oversized chain links in precious metals, with flowy designs that were glamourous rather than grunge.
Oversized silver earrings made of large, twisted chain links provided nice match to a silver dress at Alberta Ferretti. We also enjoyed the mixing of gold and silver chain links in a part of earrings at Mulberry.
It wasn’t all about earrings, with oversized chain links also showing up on a golden necklace with a red heart pendant at Oscar de la Renta, and on chunky golden chokers at J.W. Anderson.
Pearls are as delicate and feminine as can be, and the copious use of them stood out as one of the more traditional fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. Unsurprisingly, pearls were most popular in the more bourgeois collections of the big Parisian fashion houses.
At Dior, to complement a mature yet romantic collection, simple pearl necklaces that sat tightly around the bottom of the neck were lightly embellished with some rhinestone appliqués. Pearls were as subtle as can be at Celine, where they were used in lovely little stud earrings that went perfectly with the understated bourgeois collection.
In contrast, there was absolutely no subtlety about the use of pearls at Chanel. The precious little spheres totally covered ornate chokers and large hanging earrings. We also saw pearls distributed through the runways of Givenchy, Emilia Wickstead, Adeam, Dolce & Gabbana, Simone Rocha, where we also saw pearl hair accessories for fall 2019, and many others.
#22. Opulent Matching Sets
It’s been a while since anyone really thought about matching their necklace to their earrings beyond, maybe, trying to match gold with gold and silver with silver. Beyond that, it’s been everything goes.
However, for the fall 2019 jewelry trends matching sets are back, specifically with really large pieces. After all, all those massive pieces models wore both in ears and around the neck were so conspicuous that a mismatch would have been too noticeable.
At both Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana, an attitude of more is more meant that opulent crystal studded necklaces matched equally blingy low-hanging chandelier earrings. The matching sets at Paco Rabanne were all about strips of rhinestones that were nearly as opulent.
The jewelry at Matty Bovan was based on legendary creatures, with a large, bejeweled wolf necklace and earring set giving us medieval vibes.
#23. Jeweled Bib
It’s hard to think of a bib as something glamorous, although if it’s just a way of describing a jeweled necklace that covers the décolletage, then perhaps we can get you on board. These necklaces are perfect for pairing with dresses with low-necklines, although they can also work under a blazer. This season was all about pairing casual wear with opulent jewels, so give it a try!
As part of a darker vibe at Alexander Wang models wore a truly unique necklace. The part wrapped around the neck was made of leather, while below it was a triangle-shaped net studded with silver hoops. Along the perimeter of that netted bib part was a row of silver and black embellishment.
The take on the jeweled bib at Chanel was as ladylike as possible, with a pearl necklace made with multiple ropes of pearls constructed together in a sort of netted effect. At Area, loops of rhinestones lining multiple rows of rhinestone-covered necklaces came together to make the most glamorous bib necklace.
