Update your Springtime Essentials

Spring is in the air which means those closets probably need a good cleaning. Instead of purging last year’s looks, maximize the style potential of your spring time basics with some jewels. After all, bling is the best bang for your buck where the sparkle keeps on twinkling. Let’s start with these three wardrobe classics taking you your from picnics in the park to sunset cocktails.


 Denim + Flats


Feminine, timeless and easy-to-pair, ankle-length denims are an easy way to welcome spring without forgetting about those occasional winter chills. Pair with sleek (or funky) flats and a bold bracelet and you’ll be on your way to style stardom! We suggest a power cuff like the Sunburst bracelet above, for a no-nonsense, ultra modern edge. Looking for something bold, easy and fun to mix-and-match? Try our Gold Sisters link bracelets.

Pastel Dress


Rework your wardrobe with a fresh coat of cool pastels by way of a fun cocktail dress. Before you go out and splurge though, bring out your dresses of yesteryear to see what your can optimize. This spring, generously-sized gemstones are making headway on the catwalk and, rose gold crafted-sparklers like the one above, go swimmingly with a crisp, pastel palette. Looking to channel bright spring blooms? Then those multi-stone floral drops above may just be the perfect answer. Jewelry designed with gemstone flourishes are an easy way to add a bit of pop to soft pastels.

Punchy to Pared-Down Pencil Skirts


Play up your floral pencil skirts (or, skirts for that matter) with a jaw-dropping cocktail ring. This is an easy way to add an edge of sass with sophistication to basic button downs and everyday heels (or flats).  If Hi-Def bedazzlers seem like a little too much for the office, then baubled pearls add a finishing polish to this 9-to-5 spring favorite.

Jewelry Trend Alert!: Statement Rings

Fall jewelry trends for 2010 are starting to reveal themselves, and while layered chain necklaces and bangle stacks continue to shine bright, there’s a fun new look that’s sure to stir things up – statement rings.

More than just a pretty cocktail piece, statement finger candy makes an entrance. Think Gaga, not girl-next-door. This fun style on Katerina Graham at the Teen Choice Awards is one shining example.

This 80s throw-back I spotted on Trend Hunter is a two-trend-in-one solution since the decade of Duran Duran continues to influence the taste-makers (Those are little onyx dots! Love!).

The H. Stern Alice in Wonderland rings would be the perfect solution (for those of you with cash to burn).

It’s not so easy being green? Think again, Kermie. Check out these verdant statements from Hafsteinn Juliusson’s “Growing Jewelry” collection.

And flower rings are still blooming bright, like this Juicy Couture ‘Flower Punk’ ring from Nordies on Jewelry.com.

I love a lower-jaw-drop moment that doesn’t necessarily come from carat count.

What do you guys think of the trend? Do you have something in your jewelry box that qualifies? Or is this the perfect excuse to start shopping?

The Jewelry Insider

May 11, 2009

The diamond divas came out to shine at the Washington Correspondents Dinner this weekend, but no one glam-ed it up more than the Divine Mrs. O in a shock of color and a hunk of jewels.

Gone are the pearls and pant suits of First Ladies past. Obama is bringing in bright colors, brooch bling and bare arms that have the fashion world buzzing – including her own husband, who poked fun at his wife’s toned appendages during his side-splitting dinner speech.

“She’s even begun to bridge the differences that have divided us for so long, because no matter which party you belong to we can all agree that Michelle has the right to bare arms.”

Who doesn’t love a Presidential pun, right?

While I know that Michael Kors is responsible for Michelle’s pretty-in-pink floor-length dress, I’m still on the look-out for the designer of her flowery statement necklace (Twitterers, any hints?).

There are two jewelry designers the First Lady has often leaned on to make her look pop: Loree Rodkin, who supplied the diamonds for the Inauguration Festivities, and the eccentric California artist, Tom Binns, who designed the huge pearl and crystal look she dazzled us with at the first formal White House dinner in February.

What do you guys think of her sense of style? Shiny and bright? Or too over-the-top?
