I can’t wait for Spring! Longer days, warm weather, flowers, and color! As I flip through the fashion pages, it seems that my feelings are in sync with all the Spring trends. The clothing mirrors these sentiments, with floral prints and vintage eyelet. And bright colors with geometric, deco inspired designs. The feminine aesthetic is reborn! It’s time to dress like a lady, but, with a nod towards the mysterious.
The jewelry we see on the runways is a direct result of this feminine revival. Gemstones reflect the bright colors of nature, a vibrant sunset or a soft seascape. Colorful pendants and bright, oversized beads are important for Spring, delicious colors that make you smile when you wear them. Pearls are in the midst of a huge comeback. Spring fashion reminds us that pearls are uniquely feminine yet statement making. Baroque pearls are very popular, the irregular shapes and colors add interest to all styles. Long and layered is the way to go! Mix pearls with long chains and beads of different proportions. It’s time to channel your inner Coco Chanel!
Bracelets are still the accessory with the most staying power. We can’t get enough of them and our arms just never seem long enough. Bangles and cuffs stacked and layered are fun and frivolous. The look can be uniquely yours, be it romantic, retro, or with a bit of an edge.
Earrings vary in shape and size. Hoops are getting larger, yet classic styles set on the earlobe are becoming popular again. Long dangles still flatter the face, but never underestimate the power of a beautiful pearl stud! Colorful drops and chandelier styles really emphasize the beauty of the woman that wears them. And who doesn’t want that?
Silver remains hot but gold is definitely making a comeback. Gold jewelry, with its’ warm richness, is still classic choice. Look for more options using blackened metals, as they are both modern and edgy. They look great mixed with both silver and gold and provide an unexpected background for colored gemstones and diamonds. Designers are also mixing precious metals and gems with nonprecious materials such as rubber, resin, and wood. The look is dramatic and eye catching.
With clothing giving a nod to the 40’s and 50’s, diamond jewelry is certainly the perfect choice. Vintage styles are on fire, beautifully detailed and statement making. Look for rose cut diamonds to add a softer look to these retro pieces. Diamonds that move and dangle are the ultimate in feminine appeal. Shimmer and sparkle you way through Spring!
