Fall lets you do a whole wardrobe change. Colorful scarves, comfy sweaters, and a toasty hat. The perfect accessory with a classic fall look is a throwback to a different era. We’ve handpicked 8 of our favorite estate finds for fall that will look great on you while you’re drinking a pumpkin spice latte!
Pick #1: Pearl and Amethyst Earrings
Set in 18-karat gold, this design is both fun and elegant. Two 6mm freshwater cultured pearls suspend exquisite pear-shaped amethysts weighing 8.26 carats. 13 diamonds play a game of hide-and-seek throughout the design, giving these earrings a bit of playfulness and mystery.
Pick #2: Art Deco Onyx and Diamond Pendant
The unmistakable style from the Art Deco period shows the merging of classic style with modern design. This pendant is no different. It’s a converted bar pin with onyx and diamond filigree. Set in platinum and white gold, the pendant holds almost 1.9 carats of diamonds with a perfect rose and old European cut.
Pick #3: Tanzanite and Diamond Ring
An oval tanzanite weighing 8.46 carats is set in platinum and surrounded by 20 full cut diamonds weighing 1.6 carats. The band also has 4 baguette diamonds that are .4 carats, all coming together in a great estate find that is surely filled with great stories of a time gone by.
Pick #4: Edwardian Ruby and Diamond Pendant
The brief Edwardian period of the early 20th century has a look all its own. In this pendant, you’ll find a 1.12-carat triangular ruby at the bottom a handcrafted ribbon of diamonds. Inside this ribbon are 36 rose cut diamonds weighing .20 carats. When someone says “they don’t make ‘em like that anymore,” this is the kind of item they were talking about!
Pick #5: Amethyst Cocktail Ring
There is nothing subtle about this ring. It makes an immediate statement with its 18 karat blackened gold that sits like a shield on your finger. Down the front are 5 striking amethysts weighing 6.36 carats, plus an amazing display of diamonds filling up almost any available space. Too many to count? Nope… we counted them all and there are 226 diamonds, all full cut, weighing 1.81 carats
Pick #6: Topaz Drop Earrings
These earrings start out small and delicate and make a dramatic statement at the end. Two light blue topaz are suspended by a ring of diamonds. Set in 14-karat white gold, the diamonds weigh in at .45 carats, while the impressive topaz are 3.36 carats.
Pick #7: Art Nouveau Flower Pendant
This is one we love because of the undeniable craftsmanship that went into creating it. Using 14 karat rose gold, 3 natural seed pearls, and 5 old English cut diamonds weighing .16 carats, it’s clear that some time, dedication, and pure artistry went into the design. It’s only made more remarkable by the green enamel leaves, giving this a great vintage look.
Pick #8: Ruby and Diamond Earrings
This find is from a time when the deep color of rubies was the height of elegance. Looking closely at it, we find that two oval rubies, weighing an impressive 8.73 carats, are encircled by 30 full cut diamonds. The diamonds alone are 3 carats, and it’s set with 14 karat gold. These will look fantastic against the rich, earthy fall colors.
