The runway fashions of fall/winter 2013-2014 shows heavy Art Deco and Roaring 20’s influence, from cloche hats to long dresses and geometrics with a modern soft twist. The dominant colours are black, rich blues of sapphire and cobalt, reds from fire engine to merlot in velvet to rich silks. Green has made a popular showing on the catwalk in shades of forest and emerald.
You can see a heavy black influence in Versace’s latest Fall line.
There’s no better stone to celebrate this then Onyx. Onyx is available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. It looks good on its own as a pendant, but it also looks stunning when paired with crystals and pearls. Try pairing Onyx with your favorite colour, and see how striking your next piece looks!
Navy blue is making a comeback, which is pretty easy to see in Armani’s Fall 2013 collection.
An excellent stone to play off the Navy trend this year is Sodalite. Sodalite is a wonderful stone that’s easy to pair up with white pearls, clear crystals, even coloured Czech crystals! Try pairing Sodalite with an exclusive pendant, you won’t be disappointed!
Forest green is a classic colour, and we’re happy to report that Armani wants to embrace that fact for their 2013 Fall line!
Snake Skin Jasper is a great way to work forest green into your Fall lines. We have a huge variety of sizes and shapes available, from pears to rectangles, even rounds! Snake Skin Jasper is a classic stone that’s beautiful on its own, or matched with other semi-precious gemstones (try Onyx).
Keep in mind that clothing trends this year are really taking inspiration from the 20’s, so try using antique jewellery as a jumping point for your own lines.
Jewellery is long with generous layering of pearls and crystals.
Chandelier crystal earrings really compliment short and sporty hair and cloche hats
It’s so easy to work this year’s trends into your lines, and we promise that you won’t be disappointed!
