As the frost melts and the chill in the winter air mellows, Spring begins to peek its head tentatively around the corner. Though we may still be bundling up in dark turtlenecks and thick jackets, in less than a month Spring will officially arrive with an influx of dainty dresses, bright cardigans and open toe shoes.
You might be ready to welcome the lighter, brighter clothing, but is your jewelry box ready? Here are our top picks for jewelry to compliment Spring 2009 fashions:
Feminine styles, colors and cuts are again a huge priority in many designer’s spring collections. Ruffled blouses, rose-covered necklines and bow embellishments make a ladylike statement that looks lovely – but makes accessorizing a pain; especially since many jewelry trends are so loud and bold.
Avoid overpowering a delicate ladylike style with a big necklace or dangle earrings. Instead, embrace the subtle elegance of the 40s and 50s by choosing quiet, understated jewelry for your outfit. A bold cobalt ruffled top would look stunning accented with emerald cut smoky quartz stud earrings and a delicate ring, like our blue and white diamond flower ring set in white gold.
Along with the feminine, flowing fashions are the clean, geometric looks. Color-block shift dresses and simple patio dresses require completely different accessories than the ladylike trend. Instead of dainty ladylike jewels, simple geometric looks call for big, bold gold jewelry pieces.
The hottest bold jewelry for Spring 2009 are bold yellow gold necklaces and bracelets. On-trend bracelet options include a thick gold mesh bracelet or a substantial, statement-making gold bangle (see top). Yellow gold compliments bright spring colors beautifully, especially blues and purples, and big statement pieces like our Byzantine necklace and Polished & Textured Circle Necklace will look hot throughout the summer and into Fall.
Regardless of the season’s latest trends, jewelry is a personal style statement – if the above pieces don’t speak to you, check out our other beautiful gemstone earrings and yellow gold jewelry for something that suits your taste.
