Nicola's Five For Fall: Jewelry for the Season!

By Nicola Ford on November 2, 2015


As the seasons change and designers begin to present their latest collections, I am always overwhelmed by the amazing array of pieces in their presentations. The jewelry addict in me always wants every single piece in their collections-but since I can't buy it all, I am forced to EDIT!


My personal edit this season consists of five jewelry pieces that I simply could not go without and those that I see myself wearing on a regular basis. Often times, I will select items not just for my obvious attraction to them, but also their ability to transition into other seasons. It is no secret amongst my staff that I am OBSESSED with long necklaces and horn necklaces. This fall we saw lots of lengthy necklaces and lots of collars in the designer collections. However, as much as I love a good collar, I could not break away from my long and lengthy pieces.


Elizabeth Cole Kendra Rope Lariat Necklace $425


My first pick, rather my OBESESSION, is the "Kendra Rope Lariat Necklace" by designer Elizabeth Cole. Every season Stephanie Owen (Elizabeth Cole Designer) creates something I CANNOT live without, and this year it was the Kendra necklace. This extra long rope lariat is AMAZING! The quality is extraordinary due to the fact that all of her pieces are made in the U.S.A. It is long but versatile- the rope can be styled in multiple looks and makes even a t-shirt look chic. The Swarovski crystals that cover the tassels give it that extra glam factor. This rope lariat will transition with me into the Spring and Summer seasons. I can already see myself wearing it with a kaftan in Italy over the summer holiday.


Marcia Moran Gunmetal Four Row Ring $140


My second pick, is the Marcia Moran "Gunmetal Row Ring". I already own this in gold and when Marcia told me it was coming out in gunmetal I just had to have it. It is a fun, fashionable ring that looks great on, and since I love the color grey, gunmetal tones are always a must for me! This color is also an amazing transition piece in the winter months-gunmetal and the darker tones of grey pair perfectly with winter white.


Kenneth Jay Lane Spike Hoop Earrings $50


My third pick for fall are the gold "Spike Hoop Earrings" by Kenneth Jay Lane. We bought both silver and gold tones this season, but currently I am wearing more gold, hence my choice. Kenneth gives the classic hoop a contemporary edge by adding spike detailing- making them the perfect hoop earring for my everyday wear. Fun and fabulous and right at $50 these are a great option for the girl on the go and the girl on a budget!


Gorjana Layla Cuff Bracelet $138


My fourth pick for fall is my new FAVORITE cuff by Gorjana! The "Layla Cuff" is so stunning in person- the images you'll find online don't even do this golden beauty justice! This gorgeous gold honeycomb pattern cuff makes a bold-in-gold statement, perfect for any fashionista. This is another item that will easily transition into my spring wardrobe.


Ben- Amun Roman Coin Pendant Necklace $320


My fifth and final pick for the season is the "Roman Coin Pendant Necklace" by Ben-Amun. Designer Isaac Manevitz, is consistently inspired by his travels. His Roman Coin Collection, embraces the ideal marriage of the rich history of European currency and modern design. As soon as I saw this I had to have it. Isaac speaks to the world wanderer in me, and his ancient silver Roman Coin Pendant effortlessly transitions from day-to-evening. This necklace is ideal for the fashionable world traveler- or at least the girl who wishes she was traveling the world...aka ME!
