Autumn Colorimetry: Long live warm and flamboyant tones

In colorimetry, the term "woman autumn" refers to the chromatic palette of warm tones characteristic of the autumn season. These warm and strong colors particularly highlight certain women who share physical characteristics relating to the color of their skin, hair and eyes. But in reality, there are two types of "fall woman" and therefore a soft autumn color palette and a deep autumn color palette. So, which autumn woman are you?

Autumn women’s jewelry

When it comes to choosing jewelry based on colorimetry for a woman in the fall season, it is recommended to favor pieces that complement the warm, rich tones of her natural color palette. Here are some suggestions for jewelry that can be flattering for a fall woman.

Hot metals

Opt for jewelry in yellow gold, rose gold or bronze that harmonizes with the warm undertones of autumnal skin. These metals add extra warmth to the appearance.

Hot Gemstones

Choose gemstones that match the hues of fall, such as citrines, amethysts, topaz, garnets or green jades. These stones provide complementary richness and depth of color. 


Beads in warm tones like amber, bronze, or champagne can add an elegant, subtle touch to fall jewelry. Natural freshwater pearls with their soft luster can also be an attractive option.

Wood and natural materials

Jewelry made from wood, horn, tortoiseshell, or natural seeds can complement the natural, earthy aesthetic of fall. The warm, organic tones of these materials pair well with the fall palette.

Organic and nature-inspired designs

Opt for jewelry that features designs inspired by nature, such as leaves, flowers, floral designs or organic shapes. These designs evoke the spirit of fall and align harmoniously with the season.
