Outer space is a familiar source of inspiration for jewelry designers, and an easy one for jewelry collectors to embrace. We are fascinated with the night sky making wearable sunny yellow gold and sparkling diamond-studded moons a must have. Some of our favorites include the "Dream" moon necklace by Monica Rich Kosann and the "I Love You to the Moon and Back" charm by Heather Moore.

3. Delicate Designs


Featured: Slim Spike Drop Earrings in 18k Yellow Gold by Erica Molinari ($1,385, See in Store), Three Row Diamond Wave Band in 18k Yellow Gold ($3,820, See in Store), Multi-Row Diamond Ring in 14k White Gold ($3,675, See in Store)

Super feminine looks dotted the fall runway this year. It makes sense that jewelry would compliment this delicate style. Ladylike motifs, slender silhouettes, petite sizes and dainty proportions are the perfect way to show off your softer side. Our favorites include these drop earrings by Erica Molinari as well as our own multi row rings for a dainty, feminine look.

4. Convertible Gems


Featured: Jaipur Link Convertible Necklace in 18k Yellow Gold by Marco Bicego ($11,790), Jaipur Link Convertible Bracelet in 18k Yellow Gold by Marco Bicego ($4,660), Handmade Convertible European Cut White & Natural Fancy Pink Diamond Earrings (See in Store)

Another piece of jewelry designers are crushing on big time this year is convertible jewelry. We love having a piece that can transform from one look to another. Convertible jewelry not only offers flexibility to wearers, but also gives the wearer a two-for-one option in their jewelry box. We currently have two favorite convertible pieces in our collection. The first is the Jaipur Link Convertible Necklace by Marco Bicego that can be worn as a necklace or separate into two pieces for a matching necklace and bracelet set (sold separately). Second are these handmade convertible European cut white and natural fancy pink diamond earrings that can worn as drop earrings or you can remove the bottom three diamonds for a classic stud!

5. Sentimental Style


Featured: Four Stone Bezel Set Diamond Mother's Necklace in 18k Yellow Gold by Memoire ($3,850, See in Store), Handmade Burmese Moonstone Ring with Engraving "You Are In My Heart" by Erica Molinari ($2,475, See in Store), The Four "Midi" Sapphire Locket in Sterling Silver by Monica Rich Kosann ($725)

Sentimental jewels never go out of style. Sweetly styled treasures featuring tender images and personal meaning pack a big emotional punch making the piece even more special. Plus the longer a collector holds on to the piece, the more meaningful it becomes. Whether it’s a locket or a ring engraved with a special saying, these pieces tell stories of love and life and help keep memories alive. We particularly love Monica Rich Kosann’s Four Midi Sapphire Locket, Erica Molinari’s Handmade Burmese Moonstone Engraved Ring and Memoire’s Four Stone Bezel Set Diamond Mother’s Necklace.

6. One-of-a-Kind

Featured: Handmade One-of-a-kind Elongated Burmese Moonstone & Diamond Ring in 18k Yellow Gold by Erica Molinari ($9,850, See in Store), One-of-a-kind Oval Pink Spinel Ring in 18k Yellow Gold ($7,500, See in Store), One-of-a-kind Natural Jadeite Ring in 18k Yellow Gold ($8,500)

A unique piece that is all your own is always on trend. It could be something custom made for you or a one-of-a-kind vintage piece. These special pieces are the perfect way to show off your personality. We’re totally crushing on these bold, bright colored one-of-a-kind rings. Vivid gemstones like this Burmese moonstone, pink spinel and natural jade turn up the volume. 

7. Rose Gold


Featured: Graduated Diamond Bangle in 14k Rose Gold ($4,995, See in Store), Diamond Hoop Earrings in 18k Rose Gold ($2,375, See in Store), Three Row Diamond Band in 14k Rose Gold ($1,050, See in Store)

Rose gold has been around for centuries, but it is making a huge resurgence in popularity today. The blush color comes from adding copper to gold. The warmth and beauty of rose gold complements nearly every skin tone, making it a popular gift choice for any woman. Add some diamonds to ramp up the sparkle like in these featured hoops, bangle, and ring! Each piece is a timeless wardrobe staple.

8. Geometric

From pyramid-shaped earrings to square-silhouette bangles, geometric designs have taken up permanent residence in jewelry. Angular configurations have a literal edginess and minimalistic vibe making them a perfect accessory. Some of our favorites include this handmade cushion cut Sri Lankan sapphire and asscher cut diamond ring as well as these adorable upside down triangle diamond studs.
