Make a Statement With Your Jewellery This Autumn
As we transition back into the colder months, we cannot help but get inspired by its rich warm colours and vibrant, tempestuous weather patterns. Plus, we are now having to put on a few extra layers, inevitably changing the way our jewellery looks with what we wear. Autumn might be all about leaves falling and flowers hibernating, but that does not mean it isn’t full of life. Putting away the brights and the bolds of summer, deep, earthy tones are coming in to take their place. The jewellery trends from the latest 2022 runways definitely do not subscribe to the notion of subduing style after summer. Here at Studio Matakana, our gorgeous, considered selection of jewellery will help you stand out when you move through autumn.

Striking Sparkles

Pay homage to that rejuvenating rainfall with glimmering, sparkling jewellery. Whether you prefer well-polished, faceted metals or something with a few gems, this is your chance to have your Moment. Zoe and Morgan’s Gili Earrings are crafted from 100% recycled sterling silver into elegant, detailed, textural forms. Initially inspired by the underwater worlds that oceans have to offer, these forms are also branch-like, reminiscent (in autumn) of rain-drenched, leafless trees.

Bigger Bracelets

Bigger Bracelets

There is no such thing as too many bracelets this season. The bigger the pieces, and the more of them you can get, the better. Throw any rules restricting you from mixing metals and styles out the window and embrace the maximalist style of all the bracelets along with all those clothing layers. Danon’s Circles Bracelet is a stunning, hand-crafted statement piece, perfect for getting you started. Its side-by-side, textured discs will make any outfit glisten, and it is the kind of timeless piece that transcends style trends - so you can go on wearing it forever!

Warm colours

Autumn is the season where we see more earthy tones and deep, warm colours. That means gold is always going to be a good choice when it comes to choosing jewellery. Soft-toned gems in natural forms are also fantastic go-to's. Think garnets, tigers’ eyes, and onyxes to get those rich colours. But there is also no need to restrict yourself to browns, reds, and blacks - as is exemplified by Danon’s Gorge Ring in gold. The Pacific opals set into the ring carry a steely blue tone that stands out against the textured gold in a way that perfectly embodies the autumnal colour scheme.

Warm colours

Timeless and geometric

Geometric forms are fantastic when autumn comes. Their pared-back, abstracted nature is well-suited to the season, and if you prefer not to wear leaf-like jewellery outright, you can celebrate them with fractal jewellery. A classic art deco piece, Zoe & Morgan’s Flossie Earrings come from their geometric collection. The overlapping pattern creates a simple yet bold statement and is full of effortless style and modern elegance.

Seeing Silver

While gold will always be an autumn classic, this year silver is sharing the spotlight. Whether you prefer a simple silver chain or a bold chrome statement piece, the extra choice gives you a ton of freedom.

Seeing Silver

There are so many new dimensions to explore with silver entering our autumn wardrobe, and one of the pieces we’re eyeing up is the Karen Walker Mini Butterfly Necklace. It is a divine, dainty piece that is perfect for everyday wear, immortalising the charms of change and growth.

Natural Takeover

Whether you have a soft spot for stones or you love all things seashells, natural elements are dominating this season. There are so many treasures to find in the natural world, so why not adorn yourself with them? From pearls to statement flowers, once you start spotting people wearing them, you won’t stop. Here at Studio Matakana, we cannot get enough of Zoe & Morgan’s Kina series. Having dreamt up their collection while diving, these pieces carry a sense of site-specificity, celebrating Aotearoa’s gorgeous natural wildlife. They are delicate, lightweight drops with a subtle pop of colour - perfect for wearing every day.
