Jewelry Highlights from Paris and Milan

Jewelry hunting at last year’s spring ready-to-wear collections was like shooting fish in a barrel. Everywhere you looked there were huge statement necklaces, boatloads of bangles and lots of layered links.

This year? The runway shine is as dull as a Michael Bolton quickstep.

HOWEVER – there are two noteworthy designers that used the jewel to make their lines pop: Giorgio Armani in Milan and Zac Posen in Paris (his show wrapped just hours ago). Observe…

Armani’s Spring Ready-to-Wear collection was all about midnight madness. The navy night sky in Africa was Mr. Armani’s inspiration, according to Style.com – and the jewelry he chose echoed the sentiment beautifully (I’m digging out my midnight sapphires as we speak…).

Zac Posen’s line was more flirty, feathered and flapperish – with mesh jewelry styles that scream “Industrial Maven meets Prohibition Chic”. Bravo.

With the Parisian pret-a-porter extravaganza just underway, some of my favorite designers are still on the calendar – Dior/Galliano, Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier. Will they bejewel their beauties? Stay tuned…
