The standout color and the only primary in the fall season is red. Dramatic size rules in fall fashion jewelry and designers prepare with bold glass necklace sets in vibrant red fossil, dyed Mediterranean coral, and glass red and black combinations. Icy clear faceted glass and crystal quartz will coordinate with this or any other color. Blackstone and solid black glass or crystal will provide a striking contrast. Also, silver plated jewelry makes a stunning fashion statement.
Fall 2007 Fashion Jewelry Colors
Fashion's energy comes from the surprise of change and color plays a major role. Fall 2007 is certainly not an exception with the gaping absence of traditional fall neutrals and the scarcity of primary colors. When it comes to secondary colors, the fashion industry relies on Pantone. Armed with their analysis of the fall season's colors, we can stock the store with the right accessories for a recipe of success. They provide a wonderful array of color tools including a free fashion color report that is worth your time to print.
Coordinating apparel is an art in itself because most outfits use complementing colors. The talent in accessories is to provide blends or contrasts. Prepare your shop with the right accessories to coordinate this fall's colors and your clientele will trust you as much as their hairdresser.
Color Trends for Jewelry & Accessories
Deep brown of carafe is complimented by the honey tones in tiger's eye or contrasted with the olive greens of Murano style glass. Tiger's eye matrix picks up the color while the list is endless of gemstones in hues of green and brown that will coordinate. Brown lip mother of pearl makes a striking contrast with a lighter shade or provide a spectacular surprise with white howlite nuggets spidered with brown matrix.
Burnt ochre (ocher is a red to yellow impure iron ore used for pigment) has a darker than tangerine shade that provides a fertile field for artistic combinations. Red agate is a natural and the brick color of red jasper provides a darker contrast. Again olive Murano style glass can provide an interesting color scheme.
Stargazer is a deeper shade of turquoise that finds interesting compliments with bold ceramic jewelry in turquoise shades as well as turquoise and red coral separate or combined. Both silver and gold plating look good with this color. For a deep contrast consider midnight blue goldstone or lapis or for a surprise the white of howlite nugget jewelry.
Shale green has a soft blue tint that aventurine jewelry compliments. Silver plated jewelry is stunning against this color and tree agate adds a striking compliment with its mix of white and green hues. Long layered necklaces with wood beading or beige pearls accessorize the color with up to date styling.
Dusk has a bluish grey color tinted with violet. Silver plated jewelry looks superb against this color and twisted strands of white freshwater pearls offer a wonderful neutral. Hematite looks surprisingly good and red agate offers a lighter contrast with its mottled color. Glass pendants on lavender sheer ribbon compliment the color with a feminine touch. Go lighter or darker with hues of blue or use twisted pearls for a striking contrast.
Green moss leans to the yellow side for a grayish olive color. Bold glass jewelry in dark amber adds excitement to this color. Brown lip mother of pearl and green turquoise with brown matrix provide coordinating natural jewelry. Dark wood necklace sets do the same. Multi strands of olive beading that include unakite deliver hues of matching green mottled with rose color.
Lemon curry is a darker yellow that leans towards marigold, but with a softer edge. Long necklaces with dangling bronze coins are exquisite with this fashion color.Picture jasper's hues of light brown provide gemstone coordination. Beaded wood necklaces with brown lip mother of pearl pendants in bold size blend well. Murano style glass with pancake beads that use teal and black striping or olive and deep gold beads provide striking contrast with sophistication.
Cashmere rose is a soft shade with a touch of violet. Long necklaces with dyed purple shell disks provide a modern accessory with shell's natural iridescence. Gunmetal plating coordinates well and light grey pearls spaced on fine silver chain contribute to the ultra-feminine look. Soft pink in Murano style glass delivers a soothing lighter contrast. Off-white pearls are fitting neutral for this lady-like color.
Purple wine takes the middle ground between purple and wine for a color predicted to be a fall favorite. Faceted iridescent glass necklaces pick up color to provide a rich compliment. Abalone pendants coordinate with radiant violets and purples. Bold ceramic beading in deep rose colors delivers contrast with the season's popular chunky look. Large discs of white capiz shell on dark fuchsia cord coordinate well while adding a smashing bright touch.
Fall fashion colors are anything but boring this fall. The color excitement and trend towards dramatic size will put classic jewelry in the fast lane for the months building up to Christmas.
