Jewelry, like beauty and fashion, is also detected by trends. For 2011, style experts predict that pieces will be bold, fun, but still very feminine. We’ll see a lot of really edgy designs, but the key words are really opulence, opulence, and opulence. Lots of big stones, whether real or not, can add bling and glamour to even a simple cocktail dress or white blouse. Read on for more jewelry trends for 2011.
Big is back!
Most of us won’t be able to afford huge diamonds, but that’s okay! Faux gemstones made from resin and acrylic, and Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones, are just as pretty. Take a look at this Swarovski meteor necklace, and you know what we mean. It’s big, but still manages to look very feminine and delicate.
Another take on this trend sis this Shabana Khan Sophia bracelet. The stones are clustered for more impact. The modern, geometric design is feminine too, but in a different way.
Many of the stars were seen wearing motif jewelry, or stones clustered to make flowers, birds, snakes, etc. You really must applaud the creativity and workmanship that goes into these pieces. However, it’s best to pick a piece that you can see yourself wearing even past the 2011 trend—especially since the jewelry isn’t cheap! These two designs seem to do just that: they’re edgy and unique, but very classy.
The above photo is a citrine ring in a flower shape. It is simple but eye catching. Citrine is also considered good luck, and is associated wit money and prosperity.
This gold elephant-motif bangle makes a wonderful statement piece.
You can wear it with a white shirt, jeans and heels, or with a coat with a neutral color like cream. Bold, but not overpowering or flashy!
This is a great jewelry trend that you can wear at the workplace or at corporate functions. Bracelets and collar necklaces lead the way. Some of our favorites are this confection collar necklace by Kat Spade, and this sterling silver link bracelet from Blue Nile. Gorgeous!
