Autumn marks three of my favorite things: the transition to a new wardrobe (bring on the boots, chunky sweaters, and cozy scarves), the infamous Fall drinks (who can live without pumpkin spiced lattes and chai tea?), and the very best – new jewelry! From light pastels to warm neutral tones, softer colors are everywhere, especially in fine jewelry. I have spotlighted five Omi Privé favorites below. Not only do these accentuate the near transitions to Winter, but each is truly a year-round investment piece.
This ring boasts an 8.66 carat cushion-cut spessartite garnet center. The 18K rose gold setting compliments the gemstone’s rich orange color. Bright and beautiful, this garnet exudes the idyllic tone for Fall, and will add a brilliant “pop” of color to a year-round wardrobe (Style RC1012-SGCU).
Handcrafted in Platinum, these stud earrings feature two round garnets weighing a total of 1.43 carats. The orange spessartite centers are accentuated by the pavé-set diamond halo frames. These studs are stunning, yet effortless, for everyday Fall wear (Style SS1050-SGRD).
The 6.22 carat spessartite garnet in the center of this pendant was mined in Nigeria. It presents optimal color, not reflecting any excess brown or yellow. The Platinum design features a double halo, with small round spessartites set in the inner 18K rose gold frame. White diamonds add contrast, and also emphasize the garnets’ vibrant orange color (Style PC1110-SGPE).
This ring features a 6.72 carat cushion-cut pink tourmaline center. The piece was specially created in 18K rose gold to flawlessly frame the stone, and highlight its hue. The combination is perfect to accentuate Autumn’s warm tones, and the color transitions beautifully to Winter, Spring and Summer (Style RC1230-TPCU).
This 11.11 carat topaz was mined in Ouro Preto, in the state Minas Gerais, Brazil. Its fine golden-yellow hue is known as Imperial color. The stone ideally reflects its trichroism, with its noticeable red shades able to be seen from the sides. To bring out this feature, the 18K rose gold setting was specifically crafted with small round rubies set on both sides bordering its frame (Style RC1450-PTOV).
