The Jewelry Trends to Invest In for Fall 2020

You're going to want to wear these in sweater weather.

jewelry trends

It always feels good to refresh your wardrobe for fall, especially after months of wearing practically nothing in the summer heat. The temperature starts to drop and then it's time for real clothes (see ya next year, denim cut-offs). This may mean snagging a great new pair of boots and a fab sweater to wear with short skirts now and trousers later. We suggest you give the same treatment to your jewelry wardrobe. It's time to leave behind summer baubles like wooden bangles and friendship bracelets and deck yourself out with bolder pieces that feel less like a vacation souvenir. We're talkin' big sparkling crystals, statement art pieces around the neck, and jewelry for your jeans. Intrigued? Click through for a solid roundup of the top fall jewelry trends seen on the runways this February and March and where to buy these right now. And don't panic: Runway trends can seem a little intimidating, but these are simple enough to master on the daily and evergreen enough to justify a little splurge here and there.

'80s Statement Earrings

Go big or don't bother. Big statement earrings were shown as big sphere buttons (like at Dries Van Noten, left) or sculptural shapes (at Y Project, right). Either way, swap your layered dainty earrings and give them something to talk about.

Large Stud Earrings
Karine Sultan nordstrom.com

If it's a little edge you're looking for, try this pair on for size. The spike shape seems punky, but we'll bet these will go with mostly everything you own.

Heavy Gold Chokers

The choker trend looks a little different this time around. Instead of ribbons or tight beaded strands, opt for a heavy metal version that sits right at the collarbone like these from Proenza Schouler (left) and Chloe (right). It looks chic with basically everything and can be the one piece of jewelry you need to finish the look.

Sculptural Pendants

There's something so timeless about a Calder-esque sculptural necklace that fashion houses like Givenchy (left) and Valentino (right) have made part of the brand DNA. It looks great with turtlenecks shown here, but can really pull together a jeans/tee/blazer combo too.

Janan Collar
Mahnal mahnal.com

This necklace would be fab with a black turtleneck to really show off the sculptural squiggles of the pendant.

Dunya Calusa Necklace in Gold
Tohum tohumdesign.com

Even the clasp on this necklace is stunning, making this a "hair up" kind of piece in order to show it off from the back.

Fatin Cyrstal Choker
Azizah HandCrafted azizahandcrafted.com

Nothing short of special, this piece is begging to be worn with a caftan gown for evening.

Chains with Charms

No other piece of jewelry feels as sweet and nostalgic than a classic charm bracelet. On the runway they were shown on bracelets, necklaces (like Alexander McQueen, left, and Dior, right) and earrings. While accumulating charms for birthdays and milestones has great sentimental value, jewelry designers have made some stylish shortcuts.

Chain Belts

It's like a necklace...for your waist! Take a cue from the runways of Celine (left) and Ferragamo (right) and try a chain belt on with just about anything, from jeans to an LBD to a breezy summer maxi. It will look like you made a big effort, for very little effort.

Necklace Bags

Basically, these are kind of like wearing a big pendant necklace, only it can hold things? And by things we mean a lip balm, but who's counting? It's a bit of a wildcard item, but from Alexander McQueen (left) to Prada (right), these were definitely a "thing" this season.

Silver-Tone Crystal Necklace
Paco Rabanne net-a-porter.com

Throw your keys and maybe one credit card (max) into this little necklace pouch as an even teenier evening bag.

Honey, Fendi shrunk the Baguette!

Fancy Headbands

Making a hair statement was definitely a priority on the runways this season. From futuristic crowns at Prada (left) and upside-down styling at Fendi (right), this takes the headband to new heights, literally. While a Blair Waldorf-inspired headband is always great, opt for something more dramatic this fall.

Animal Print Beaded Headband
Ganni farfetch.com

The subtle sparkle on this headband makes this look a bit dressier for evening.

Piled-On Pearls

Pearls have made a major comeback and don't seem to be heading anywhere anytime soon. For fall, try layering them in various lengths like at Chanel (left) or pairing different pearl shapes together as seen at March Jacobs (right). It's all about pulling a double-duty look when it comes to pearls.

The duality of baroque and pink freshwater pearls is double the beauty, double the fun.
