Jewelry Trends This Season

What is hot this season in jewelry? Without being super trendy, the best “on-trend” designs on the runway can certainly be translated to beautiful pieces worn by all of us. Here are a couple of examples of the designer trends and my own interpretation of the theme.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are perfect accessories this season because they are typically embellished with gorgeous gemstones that elegantly cascade down the ears and frame a woman’s face beautifully. The above set of Chandlier's are the designer version, while the Pink version below, are my interpretation of the trend.
This season look for earrings with intense color palettes such as infusions of fuchsia with garnet or deep olive greens with topaz. A burst of fierce color and glistening gemstones creates a striking contrast that gives any ensemble a touch of alluring glamour. Chandelier earrings are usually worn without a necklace. They are intended to be the center of attention.

Bib Necklace

This “Bib” necklace flaunts large, over-sized shapes against muted color schemes. Look for eclectic bold pieces that infuse various textures within the design such as ribbons vs. metal and woods vs. gemstones and colorful pearls. The "Bib" necklace is to be worn with little if any other jewelry. It is a great way to stay on trend while exuding a look that seems like it required a minimal effort.
The two examples of "On-trend" yet sidewalk savvy "Bib" necklaces are again, my interpretation of the designers. I used sterling silver sticks for the embellishments.
The first one with Jasper stone spacers...

...and this one with freshwater peacock purple pearls.
