Fall's perfect palette is back for another season of luxe hues and rich accents. Jewel tones are a sublime medium between classic metals and bright pop-colors. These colors are wildly popular during the colder months for adding muted, romantic touches. Amethyst, ruby, sapphire, emerald, and citrine are elegant and timeless against a backdrop of gold and silver, making jewelry the perfect way to wear them. Discover some of our favorite jewel tone pieces—and tips to wear them—below.
Jewel tone tip: Pair luxe jewel tone earrings with black and white to highlight the color without going overboard. Liven up the look with a muted hue like olive or jade green (which is one of fall's hottest palettes, in case you missed it).
Jewel tone tip: Add a jewel tone cuff or bangle that matches back to an accessory like a belt, bag, or pair of heels. You can also use them to accent a monochrome jewel tone look. For example, if you're rocking a deep sapphire dress or a ruby red power suit.
Jewel tone tip: Why pick one when you can have multiple hues to play off of in your look? Combine two (or more) jewel tones together to create a symphony of elegant colors. This tip works best when paired with neutrally hued tops and dresses.
Jewel tone tip: Look for fresh ways to play up the jewel tone in your outfit. Pair back your richly hued ring to a jewel tone lip like maroon or amber, or select an emerald or sapphire pant to complement baubles around your neck.
