How to Know the Hot Jewelry Trends for Fall 2008 & Winter 2009

by Kristie Leong M.D.

Here are some of the best new jewelry trends for fall 2008/winter 2009 to keep you looking fashion forward and up to the minute.
Step One
Natural stones. The green movement has hit the jewelry world in a big way. You'll see a proliferation of natural beads and stones adorning all types of jewelry this fall and winter. Look for natural gemstones such as jade and turquoise to be a hit along with wood, bone, and freshwater pearls. These are the perfect pieces to be incorporated into the dramatic statement necklaces that will be so popular this fall.

Step Two
Bracelets, bracelets, bracelets. The wrist will take on new importance this fall and winter and what better way to flatter an appendage than with a bold cuff bracelet. Though a large, unadorned cuff bracelet makes a statement on its own, cuffs sprinkled with stones and jewels of all types are also fabulous. These bold statement pieces will take your wrists from ordinary to extraordinary without spending a fortune. Feeling creative? Buy a plain cuff bracelet and decorate it with the stones and jewels of your choice.

Step Three
Pendants. With so much emphasis on the neck, pendants are making a comeback and they're bold and dramatic like the necklaces they dangle from. Look for oversized coins, medallions, and gemstone pendants to add to your collection. Although super large pendants were emphasized in all the fashion runway shows, there's still a place for smaller, more delicate pendants if bold isn't your style. Just make sure you have some!

Step Four
Necklaces with drama. Necklaces will take on importance this fall and winter and are designed to make a bold statement. Look for an abundance of multi-strand necklaces and layering of strands to create a look that will take even the most ordinary outfit from fine to divine. Necklaces seen on the fashion runways ran the gamut in color and style, but they were all universally bold in their presentation. These "in your face" necklaces are best worn with simple clothing as all eyes will be drawn to your neck. Put away your small, demure chains and think big, bold, and eye catching when it comes to necklaces for fall.
