1) Radiant Orchid
The Pantone Color Institute announced that the color of the year is “Radiant Orchid.” What a perfect color for spring, a season which promises a sense of refreshment and renewal. Wondering how to accessorize with this new hue? Dress up a plain jeans-and-tee look with a pair of purple earrings. Pair that little black dress you’ve been meaning to wear with a purple gemstone cocktail ring or purple bangles. The options are endless!

2) Pastels & Brights
A common trend that was seen on the runway for spring 2014 was mixing pastels with brighter colors. For instance, why not wear a bright blue top with a light blue statement necklace. Try pairing a bright red dress with some light pink jewelry. This is a fun way to incorporate your favorite colors into your look without overdoing it.

We’ve got color contrasts in each of these fun spring collections.

3) Florals
Let’s be serious. Who doesn’t love flowers, right? They smell nice, they’re pretty to look at, and this spring season, they’re fun to wear! Floral statement necklaces, simple flower stud earrings, floral bracelets and cuffs, and watches with florally designed faces are just a few of the pieces that are popular for spring 2014.

Our Zoccai Designer line has a lot of flirty florals to flock to.

4) Cuffs
Ear cuffs, hand cuffs (not the kind you’re thinking!), and ring cuffs are all the rage this spring season. Celebs such as Jennifer Lawrence can be seen rocking ear cuffs on the red carpet, while the ultimate fashionista, Sex and the City gal, Sarah Jessica Parker, has been spotted wearing several glitzy hand cuffs. Have fun experimenting with this new trend.

Summer Jewelry Trend Alert: Get Cuffed

Forget ‘raindrops and roses’ and ‘whiskers on kittens’, ‘summer’ and ‘jewelry’ are a few of my favorite things – and one of the hottest bauble trends of the season is both affordable and creative: Cuffs! Sarah Jessica Parker can’t get enough of them and designers like Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui and Diane von Furstenburg are using them on their runways like nobody’s business. So how do you wear them? You can go for just one big look like this cool agate cuff from Nordies for only $68! Or better yet, layer them up using a variety of cuff categories – like this Betsey Johnson floral look with this metal stretch piece. And there’s no rule against using a cuff/bangle combo. How cool would this trendy faux turquoise style look with a series of gold clinks to go with? Jewelry.com has a great assortment of statement cuff cuties from the hottest (and most trusted) jewelry retailers. Or you can cruise vintage stores, garage sales and grandma’s jewelry box for styles screaming for summertime fun. Getting cuffed never looked this glam. Unless you saw this ‘bachelorette party’ gift on The New York Housewives last week (ahem).
