MANY OF THE STYLE-SETTING actresses at the 70th Prime Time Emmys appeared in the jewelry accessory that has been dominating the red carpet for the past few seasons. Earrings! Although several styles of earrings made an appearance, linear and elongated styles stole the spotlight, predominantly in diamonds that had swing and movement. An alluring showing of gemstone styles was in line with how fine-jewelry designers are interpreting the trend. They feature ultra-long teardrop, geometric and three-dimensional inverted triangular shapes, as well as specialty cuts.

On the fall/winter couture and ready-to-wear runways, shimmering silver and steely platinum tones shone brightly in everything from suits to gowns. This trend is a perfect segue into the silver and white metal trends of the past couple of seasons. Jewelry designers combine textural interest with diamonds to create an almost metallic-like finish to their pieces. This look is one of casual chic with a nod to unexpected cuts of diamonds and tactile details.

Venice Film Festival’s stars twinkled on the red carpet in the city of gondolas and romance. One of the more wearable trends we saw is front-facing hoops, some of which climb up the ear almost like a wave while others simply rest on the front. We see them in a variety of incarnations, from diamond sparklers to those set with pearls or colored stones. It’s a trend that continues to grow and create plenty of hoopla.

When It Comes to This Customer Type’s Jewelry, She Always Gets Lucky

See what styles to pick for customers who believe in astrology and other talismans.

THE FORTUNE TELLER is a woman who believes in the power of her talismanic jewelry. She loves past inspiration but prefers to wear symbolic pieces from modern designers and think about the next chapter in her life. She values love, luck and protection, and she appreciates charms that hold deep meaning in these areas. She is fearless about mixing metals, colors and medallions together as long as they are significant to her.

1. Foundrae

For the Fortune Teller, a charm bracelet reflects where she has been and how she is moving forward in her life. She wears the lion medallion for strength, the dream star, arrow and triangle for “actualizing her dreams,” the scarab for protection and the karma medallion to send out positive energy into the world.

Signet rings have provided meaning throughout history, from family crests and seals that were used to sign important documents to motifs that related one’s hobbies. The Fortune Teller is enamored of contemporary signet rings that are relevant in modern times and to her on a personal level. This one with a lion signifies “fearlessness and being extraordinary.”
