The Jewelry Insider

June 2, 2009

Jewelry style is all about making a personal statement, and the layered looks
coming off the red carpets and runways for summer are giving women everywhere
the perfect excuse to pile it on thick!

Whether you’ve got a dozen
pendants
hanging out in your jewelry box or a closet full of those long
pearl
strands
Madonna made famous in the 80s, the layering trend gives us the OK
to wear them all at once or simply put on two or three at a time to add a little
shine.

And the layered look isn’t relegated to the neck.
Bangles
have been a constant presence in fashion circles this season, with designers
like
Marc
Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana
using the wrist to light up their lines.

So how should you wear your layers?

Color happens to be king in jewelry circles this summer, so don’t be afraid
to wear a variety of
gemstone
styles
together with, say, a costume piece to liven up that little black
dress. Or stick with one metal color and wear varying lengths and textures, like
Vanessa Hudgens did at the
MTV
Movie Awards
last weekend.

Sandra Bullock wore a statement necklace at the premiere of her new film,
The Proposal, made with
layers
of pearl strands
and metallic links – the perfect interpretation of the
trend, in our opinion. Mix, match and make them drool!

But you don’t have to have the bank account of an A-lister to rock the look
for your next night on the town. Shop from the
thousands
of pendants
and
bangle
selections
on Jewelry.com and pair your new pieces with selections from your
own jewelry box.

And there’s nothing wrong with rooting through your mom or grandma’s stash to
see if there’s a vintage piece just screaming to make an appearance at your next
patio party.

Layering isn’t just for the hair salon anymore, ladies. It’s time to bring
out the bling – and pile it on thick!
