Jewelry Trend Alert: Bug Jewelry


Fall jewelry trends this year are full of creative wiggle room for the accessory-obsessed like yours truly. We’ve already covered the statement ring (like this one on Drew Barrymore at her Going The Distance movie premiere):

Another must-have look for the season involves all things creepy and crawly – insect jewelry. Call it Kafka couture, if you will.

New York Magazine featured Sea of Shoes’ new funky beetle-inspired jewelry this week, and JCK Magazine reports jewelry designers at the Feninjer Fair in Brazil are showing everything from green and blue gemstone butterflies to styles incorporating beetle wings.

So how to wear these buggy little baubles?



And spiders are always cool, especially if they’re made out of black and white diamonds.

And if the darker side of bug life isn’t up your alley, there’s always the happy-go-lucky bumble bee, like this collection from Kate Spade.

The possibilities are endless, which is why I kinda love this new trend. What do you guys think? Would you wear winged creatures to the workplace?

    Love how you casually slip Kafka into this post and also love the photos. I’ve seen beetle jewelry before, always assumed it was a sacred symbol in some cultures (Egypt?), but I like the bumble bees and spiders too.

    Yeah, I’m kindof loving this trend. Mixing things up – that’s for sure.

    And thank you for acknowledging my limited literary reference skills. Glad that college education is good for something!
