As the nights draw in and the leaves start to shift from green to yellow and orange, celebrate the start of a new season with our gorgeous selection of autumnal fine jewellery.

While some may mourn the end of summer, I always look forward to the arrival of autumn and all that it brings, from cosy log fires to mugs of steaming hot chocolate, and crisp, sunny mornings. Jewellery designers have translated those happy autumn vibes into fine jewellery collections glowing with a rich, burnished colour palette, bursting with seasonal motifs such as leaves and acorns.

The acorn, in particular, has emerged as a favourite design, bolstered no doubt by the fact that Kate Middleton has been spotted on several occasions wearing an Asprey necklace with an acorn charm from the Woodland collection designed by Shaun Leane. Inspired by English woodland fauna, the Asprey jewellery collection features whimsical charms in the form of mushrooms, acorns, oak leaves, pine cones and blackberries, which can be attached to Asprey bracelets, earrings and pendants.

Acorns also abound in fine jewellery collections from the likes of Carrera y Carrera, Cathy WatermanK. Brunini and Ole Lynggaard, who have all embraced the autumnal motif in various guises, from the diamond-encrusted acorn on the Cathy Waterman pendant necklace, to the more rustic version punctuating the ends of a bangle in K. Brunini's Twig collection.

The breathtaking beauty of a fairytale woodland landscape is replicated in the Asprey Oak Leaf ring, set with a central peridot surrounded by pavé tsavorites, while autumn showers are captured in the flurry of rose gold rain drops that cascade downwards in a pretty pair of earrings from the new Carla Amorim jewellery collection, entitled Romance.

Finally, autumn’s explosive colour palette is brought to magnificent life in a pair of chandelier earrings from British jeweller Hirsh, in which yellow and orange diamonds resemble falling leaves - a reminder of the visual spectacle we have to look forward to in the coming weeks as the new season gets underway.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
