The Jewelry Insider

August 1, 2008

The summer winds are still blowing jewelry lovers, and The JI has the perfect accessory to compliment that hard-earned tan. Go for the gold! This week, more than 30 fine jewelry designers featured their bold gold looks at the Style LA fashion show hosted by the Kardashian sisters at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. Do those gals ever sleep? The event, now in it’s sixth year, celebrated swim and resort wear fashion in support of worthy charities, Facial Paralysis Foundation and Stop the Violence/Face the Music.

Statement earrings, stackable bangles and cuffs, and the current must-have for your jewelry box – the pendant necklace – were the featured looks on the runway as models strutted poolside wearing looks from nine different designers, including, Christian LaCroix and Monique Leshman.

“The versatility, warmth and allure of yellow gold proved a perfect fit for this wide array of fashion collections,” said Duvall O’Steen, Director of Jewelry PR for the World Gold Council. “Only gold can complement every skin tone and every color under the sun.” I couldn’t agree more.

And if you are only looking for one key accessory to bring with you on that island vacation, stick with the tried-and-true gold hoop earring. Just take it up a notch with a larger size or wider band to reflect the season’s ‘bigger is better’ trend.

So, like most Olympic hopefuls, we have gold on our mind this week. Don’t let the summer go by without adding a little glow to your poolside style!
