The New Boho-Chic—9 Jewelry Trends From the Fall 2024 Runways

by Minh Phan

We saw the future when we wrote, in our spring 2024 jewelry trend report, that boho-chic was on its way back. The festival beads and toe rings on the runways last season certainly portended the return of the mid-aughts aesthetic, even if the ready-to-wear then didn’t tell the same story. Fast forward to the fall 2024 shows, and fashion is all caught up now, what with the flouncy blouses, leather capelets, golden and animal jewelry at Chemena Kamali’s Chloé debut, and the fact that the OG boho-chic It-girl Sienna Miller was sitting in the front row.

Do the jewelry trends from the new collections predict the next trend revival? Not quite—despite what TikTok would have you believe, the trend cycle doesn’t actually move that fast. Instead, the jewelry stories on the fall runways contextualize the boho aesthetic in 2024. Rather than Coachella-bound infinity necklaces we saw an abundance of minimal drop pendants, with everyone from Bottega Veneta to Gabriela Hearst and Tom Ford suspending polished stoned and abstract metal shapes from thin chains and leather ropes. Animal motifs returned, but rather than kooky (and life-sized) snakes and lobsters or cutesy cows and dinosaur pins, Chloé revived its snake motif and cast mini horse heads out of antique gold, while Jonathan Anderson had tiny doves painted on signet rings.

Elsewhere, silky necklaces spoke to a collective longing for softness and comfort in the face of the world’s harsh realities, while Calder-esque earrings and sculptural necklaces and brooches offered an emotive, expressive alternative to the quiet luxury trend that’s now feeling played out. A touch of chic to balance the new boho.
