The stores featured today truly stand out locally as jewelry destinations where you can find gorgeous keepers that fit this season’s trends. Talking to the store owners, we found out that shiny gold is back, jewelry with fringe is in (we know you’ve noticed all the tassels over the past year!), bigger earrings are making a comeback, long necklaces continue to be sought after, and rings are still holding on as statement pieces that women love to have. We stopped by Anatra Jewel, AshBlue, Cindi Earl, Gus Mayer, JAMIE, Judith Bright, MODA and Margaret Ellis, and we’re excited to share with you what we found.

For further details, see the Anatra SB Guide page here.
Anatra’s owner, Maria Fouce, pointed out that shiny gold is back and one way to embrace this look is via stacked rings—stunning! You can add some shiny gold rings to some other stackable rings you have or purchase a few new ones to wear together. The rings featured below are from the Anatra Collection and are sure to make your hands happy! This look works well for all ages.

For further details, see the AshBlue SB Guide page here.
AshBlue is our go-to place in Nashville for horn jewelry. No, it’s not made out of actual horn, but resin with markings to mimic the organic nature of horn. Horn jewelry goes so well with fall colors and is an easy way to “finish” your outfit. A brand new shipment of horn jewelry just arrived at AshBlue, so now is the perfect time to stock up on a cuff, a necklace or a pair of earrings with lots of options from which to choose. While you are there, you can drool over the wide selection of jewelry AshBlue has, as about 20 percent of their spacious store is devoted just to jewelry. It comes in all price ranges from “just because” to “I’ll start saving for that!”

For further details, see the Cindi Earl SB Guide page here.
Owner Cindi Earl picked out two pieces that are affordable and make a statement. Both are silver with white topaz, so they create the look of diamonds without the expense. The Jude Francis cuff below is beautiful on its own or mixed with other bracelets for the layered look of arm candy that we continue to love. The ring is such a fun piece from a new line at Cindi Earl called “Kin, we are all connected.” With either piece, or both, you’ll have pieces that will be worn time and time again not only this season, but year-round.

Gus Mayer’s manager, Beth Franklin, picked out this gorgeous Lisa Aronow turquoise long necklace for a piece of jewelry that epitomizes today’s contemporary look. As Beth says, “The black and turquoise color combination is seasonless and adds the perfect punch of color to all the neutrals we’re seeing this fall. The blackened silver layers well with gold and silver jewelry and the tassel is right on trend for this fall and winter season.”
This next necklace, at a lower price point, also shows off the tassel trend. Beth says, “This is a great piece for right now because the gray and taupe tones of the agate will work beautifully with all of those neutrals I was just talking about. For warmer fall days, these colors really anchor a lighter weight summer top to help transition from summer to fall. And if the cooler weather ever gets here, add it to a gray, brown or black outfit for interest and to keep things from being too dark or monochromatic. Also, I love the richness of the horse hair tassel.”

For further details, see the JAMIE SB Guide page here.
Stopping by the JAMIE jewelry counter is a must, and these pieces by local jeweler Laurie Kaiser are so wearable with whatever you have on. The moonstone picks up the colors surrounding it, always giving way to a new look that is perfect with bright colors, neutrals, patterns or solids. As with all these pieces featured throughout today’s article, trying these on and then giving them back only led to pangs of serious desire. These pieces feel as good on as they look!
2307 12th Ave. S.
Nashville, TN 37204
The Judith Bright studio on 12th Avenue South is brimming with fabulous, handmade-right-in-the-store pieces. But when trying to pick something that is very much on trend, Judith turned to her fringe pieces. Yes, fringe is everywhere this season, and that means clothing, shoes and jewelry. These featured pieces are just some of the ways the Judith Bright collection is having fun with fringe this season. And remember that you can always order Judith Bright online and support local from wherever you are.

For further details, see the MODA SB Guide page here.
Stop by this bustling boutique on 12th Avenue South, right next to Frothy Monkey, and take time to look at all the lovely jewelry handcrafted by Nashville jewelers. MODA has been dazzling us with locally sourced jewelry since opening eight years ago. For trends, owner Meredith Fidler says that she continues to be asked for long necklaces and that this desire from her customers has not waned. Bigger earrings are also selling well.
209 10th Ave. S., #309
Nashville, TN 37203
For further details, see the Margaret Ellis Jewelry SB Guide page here.
Under the ownership of Mclaine Richardson, we’ve loved watching the Margaret Ellis brand continue to grow and inspire. As we looked at her current collection, the mixed metal statement pieces all stood out and it was hard to choose just a couple to showcase. Remember, all of these pieces are handmade in her Cummins Station studio. Both this necklace and ring are ones we’d happily wear during the work week and on the weekend. They’d be sitting by our bathroom sink ready to put on at a moment’s notice!
We hope fall fashion has you just as excited as it does us!
