Drusy Dayton Earrings by Kendra Scott

Trend Tuesday: 'Tis the Season to Accessorize

As cold weather comes in, new trends in jewelry do as well. Big gems and rings are making their way into this fall’s forecast. Local boutiques can contest that these are their customers’ season favorites and employees’ favorites as well.

Event coordinator for Kendra Scott of Scottsdale Sabrina Spector says the most popular jewelry in the store is drusy. The dark stone is perfect for the cool weather, she says. The pieces range from $65 to $125.

She also likes a stacking ring bands together. For only $6 each, Matlin recommends buying a few to mix and match.

Clutch Jewelry is wearing its jewels a different way. Stacy Eden of Clutch says putting rings on a long chain gives a retro look that’s multifunctional.

Her favorite rings to put on a chain have big baroque and snake prints on them. These rings are handmade and come in silver, gold and bronze, starting at $98.

“The bigger and more detailed the better! Snakes have always fascinated me…The way they move captivates me to my core,” Eden says.
