As we head toward spring, we turn our attention to jewelry that represents warmth, beauty and vitality. The jewelry featured at the Spring 2012 New York Fashion week was an impressive mix of bangles, earrings and necklaces in a range of styles. From retro chic, to elegant pieces, there are a number of choices that are fit for fun in the sun.
Gold and platinum bracelets are all the rage for spring 2012. Whether you’re a fan of elegant single-cuff bracelets, or chunky, double-cuff bangles, there are several options that fit the bill. High carat, diamond-encrusted bangles are versatile pieces that complement after five wear, or add a bit of flair to casual attire. The shimmering pieces are the perfect choice for cocktail parties or a night out with the girls.
Oversized necklaces add pop to the neckline. Colorful beads, hanging pendants, and drop stones set in precious metals are bold and brilliant choices that will definitely stand out. If you are really looking for a change of pace, choose a yellow or rose diamond for a fancy touch. Gemstones are also an exquisite choice when coupled with antique finishes.
Ultra long earrings have been trending for the last few years, and they show no sign of letting up. Intricate link styles, chandelier diamonds and colorful feathered tassels will elongate the neckline when you’re wearing a spring dress.
