Designer Jewelry that Shines at Holiday Parties

12/12/2011

Jewelry designers are sending a clear message this winter: Think novel. This season features fresh colors, unusual shapes and unexpected materials and textures, and jewelry is showing up in non-traditional places, too, such as the ankles and cuffs. Fashion’s overall trend toward depth and detail is apparent in designer and celebrity jewelry lines. Here are some of the hottest trends to wear at holiday parties and to help ring in the New Year with style, shine and sparkle.

Few will debate that crimson red and emerald green are the big colors for the winter season. Deep purple, vibrant blue and glowing amber are part of the jeweled palette, too. Silver is present, but not on its own. Black and silver luxury jewelry is the go-to choice for those who prefer a cooler spectrum. 2luxHeidi Klum’s Wildlife line is an affordable collection that hits the right fashion notes for the winter. The line features chunky necklaces and bracelets inspired by the popular costume jewelry of the early 1900s. Black, antique silver and rhinestones are featured in intricate designs and sizable shapes. Statement jewelry is best worn with discretion, such as with dresses that won’t make the outfit appear overly heavy or cluttered.
3luxluxmeshMesh jewelry provides another affordable way to adorn outfits with a rich, textured look. Liquid Metal jewelry by Sergio Gutierrez offers a broad collection of mesh jewelry that has just the right balance of bling, mass and class. Cuff bracelets are an ongoing fashion trend, and mesh bracelets present the look with a softer, more tactile appeal.

Feathered earrings and hair extensions are continuing to grow in popularity, showing up on handbags, shawls and frocks as well. This light and airy - yet sculptural - material works beautifully for earrings, and the soft texture and colors frames and flatters the face as well.

The best aspect of the holiday trends for this winter is their variety and novelty. Women are sure to find something new that will keep them looking fashionable, yet that will also reflect their own personal styles and tastes. The key is to stay current with color, material, texture and application, then find the jewelry that makes one feel chic and beautiful, so that the new year can be welcomed with confidence and style.
