Fall is almost here, which mean’s it’s almost that delightful time of year for drinking apple cider, picking pumpkins, and dressing up and accessorizing in warm, earthy tones.
We love this season here at Happening Hands, and we wanted to share some of our favorite fall jewelry trends for those crisp autumn days and nights. All of the jewelry in our marketplace is handcrafted and made in the U.S. by artisan jewelry designers.
Without further ado, here are our top 3 fall jewelry trends!
Toasty Warm Tones
Terracotta Medusa Earrings from WhimsyJuice
When you think of fall, which colors come to mind? Probably earthy reds, browns and blues, warm orange, and golden yellow, right? Autumn is the time of year when our slice of earth sheds its skin and hibernates for the winter, only to have a rebirth again next spring. While we think of pastels and bright colors for spring and summer, fall is for earth tones, and it is the perfect time to add some warm jewelry to your wardrobe. WhimsyJuice’s flirty and dangly Terracotta Medusa Earrings feature whiskers of copper embedded in the clay for an extra warm sparkle, making them the perfect accessory for your knit wrap or favorite sweater.

It’s warm tones remind us of hikes in the mountain woods and cool evenings by the fire. Features hidden details on the back! Jessie from Wild Child Jewelry Designs creates remarkable sterling silver jewelry featuring turquoise, like the necklace above, as well as patina. She specializes in creating bracelets featuring the mountain range of your choice. Customize your mountain in black or iridescent patina, and have its name and the date you visited inscribed on the inside. This bracelet is perfect for yourself or the nature lovers in your life.
Black and Gold
Glow Flow Fang Earrings by Ascendant Jewelry
Ready to add a little dramatic flair to your fashion? Nothing compares to the dynamic contrast of black and gold jewelry. Black, the darkest of colors, conjures up thoughts of star-filled autumn skies, wolves howling into the night, or crows cooing in bare trees. And gold, the color of one of the earth’s most precious metals, evokes memories of the sun setting over dried grass, and fallen leaves turning golden on the sidewalk. Melissa from Ascendant Jewelry takes the drama of black & gold a step further with her Glow Flow Fang Earrings. Organic oxidized sterling silver fang shapes are layered with 18 karat yellow gold. Sink your fangs into these stunning earrings, suspended from solid 14 karat yellow gold hand-forged earring hooks.

Summer Blooms Hesonite Garnet Ring by Fickle Me Jewelry
There’s nothing quite like the lush color of gemstones. These incredible creations of earth make an excellent addition to your style any time of year.
