JCK 5: Violet Jewelry for Fall



Move over, Marsala. The shade’s sweeter sisters—red, pink, and particularly purple—have stepped into the spotlight. In the fall collections, Anna Sui presented plenty of plum in her rich-hippie designs, and Erdem showed shimmery magenta jacquards. Meanwhile, Beyoncé just covered September’s Vogue in a lacy lilac Marc Jacobs creation. Fortunately, there’s no lack of crossover with jewelry: Amethysts, tanzanites, rubellites, and other gems are all contributing to autumn’s purple reign.
