While we still love the classics, it's your new jewelry that will get you noticed this fall.
Trend: Statement Earring

HOW TO WEAR IT: Your earrings no longer have to match, especially if one is a bit over the top. Invest in a bold drop earring this fall—like this intricate stunner with 2.56 carats of brown diamonds—and don a gold stud on the other ear.
Trend: Hand Bracelets
Diamond and 14-karat yellow gold hand chain bracelet, Zoe Chicco ($1,100). Saks Fifth Avenue, 700 N. Michigan Ave., 312-944-6500
HOW TO WEAR IT: Keep it simple when trying the hand bracelet trend. A delicate gold chain is all you need, and some subtle embellishments—like the diamond triangles on this piece—make it your own.
HOW TO WEAR IT: Necklaces have gotten bigger and brighter season to season, but this fall they’ve reached colossal proportions. If you’re going to try this trend, why not go big; wear a solid top or dress and let the necklace do all the talking—this one makes a very glamorous statement.
Trend: Ear Cuffs
Gold Lola ear cuff, Ana Khouri ($1,095). Barneys New York, 15 E. Oak St., 312-587-1700
HOW TO WEAR IT: Even if you didn’t get your cartilage pierced as a teenager, you can still get in on this season’s coolest jewelry trend: the ear cuff. Wear this adult-appropriate piece with or without traditional earrings—it all depends on how much you want to get noticed.
Trend: Mixed Stacking Rings
Deluxe Hand Me Down stack ring, Henri Bendel ($128). 845 N. Michigan Ave., 312-951-1928
HOW TO WEAR IT: Stacking rings are back for another season, this time with even more mixed metals and embellishments; the key is balance and variety. Henri Bendel’s pre-stacked rings (attached with a pin at the back) do the mixing and matching for you.
