“Get the Look”

“Big and Bold “ – the Trend continuous for  Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Jewelry Collections – from chokers to long and dangly pieces, ethnic or vintage looking – everything goes.

One of the strongest trends bold Jewelry, colorful or black/white and also distinct whether it is in design or material. “going green” with recycled glass, base metal, plastic, wood….. is giving way to some very interesting looks. Jewelry that stands out and is easy to integrate with any fashion style.

Another Jewelry trend is the use of multi layered necklaces. This trend is getting hotter as necklaces become more elaborate with unique beads and several different strands or layers being added to them.

Big cuff bracelets, hoop and extra long earrings and rings with huge stones are also a must.
