A new year means a whole new list of trend-setting sparkle to help make sure you won’t get caught wearing last years’s bling. Jewelry.com brings you the top five trends to look forward to for Winter/Spring 2012.
1. Statement Makers
2012 will be the year to make a statement when it comes to your jewelry collection. Don’t be afraid to take one piece and go over-the-top. Be bold with big cocktail rings. Make yourself the center of attention with dangling chandelier earrings that touch your collarbone – also a red carpet prediction.
2. Channel your Inner Daisy Buchanan
The upcoming re-adaptation of The Great Gatsby may have triggered the trendsetters with this one. The jazzy looks of the roaring 20s will make a comeback this year. According to JCK, expect to see jewelry ‘in bloom’ with floral designs that have an Art Deco-inspired flair. Drape yourself head to toe in super long pearl strands, add a tassel style earring and transform yourself into a modern day flapper!
3. Blue is Lookin’ Good on You
Pantone has already crowned Tangerine Tango as the official color of Spring 2012, but we believe anyone can accessorize with a great blue jewel. From light aquamarine, sky blue topaz, and royal sapphire, there’s a shade of blue for every skin tone and every ensemble. Check out Jewelry.com’s Shades of Blue Collection and enter our world of bluesy bliss.
4. A Classic Look is Always in Style
You can never go wrong with the ‘less is more’ approach to accessorizing. Rachel Zoe may disagree with this, but recent trendsetters like Princess Kate have shown that you can be glamorous with understated jewels. Classic diamond studs or small hoops are perfect ear wear, while simple pendants and pearl strands offer a timeless look.
5. Mellow Yellow Metal Mavens
Warm up the winter months with sunny yellow gold jewelry – from hoops and bangles to the hottest new variation – bold gemstone looks. Everything from giant gemstone cocktail rings to glowing pendants and earrings will fit the blingy bill – so it’ll be a breeze to branch out from diamonds and white gold. Citrine, blue topaz and amethyst stones are a sure bet.
