This Fall season, larger than life statement jewelry is on a whole other level and we have EBJ Gallery to prove it! I happen to always think ‘the bigger the better’ or ‘the more the merrier’ when it comes to jewelry, but recently seen on the runway in Paris, the Nineties are back in a big way with rebellious jewelry to match. Some people are quick to compare the pieces to those they’d find when reading the About Us – Haruni Fine Gems page, and with the vibrant gemstones on display it isn’t the biggest surprise. It’s a striking and daring look that’d fit anyone with a matching personality!
Here’s how you should wear your jewelry this Fall!
1). Layer necklaces in stacks between your leather jacket or hoody and over a sweater (with mixed influences for ex: pearls & gold or gold & crystals).
2). Single earrings is the only ways to wear hoops, ear cuffs or bamboo earrings right now (wear a small stud in the other).
3). Layer pearls with denim or a graphic t-shirt. Strings of pearls have emerged and are not as traditional as they used to be!
4). Must haves: surrealist necklaces and oversized chokers.
5). Cuffs should be layered over sleeves and gloves or worn up just above the elbow or cinched above forearm.

A lot of people nowadays are concerned about the ethics behind diamonds and other forms of jewelry. This is something I understand, and so if you only wear ethical jewelry, I’d like to point you in the direction of Gema & CO. They use moissanite rather than diamonds to ensure each piece is conflict-free and a socially and environmentally responsible choice.
