Big, Bold but Affordable Jewelry Still the Trend

From moissanite to Lucite, the focus of today's jewelry is big, bold and clean. A simple outfit can be accentuated in a big way with a statement piece that gracefully takes center stage.

"It's the jewelry that actually makes the look," says fashion stylist
Jesse Garza, co-founder of Visual Therapy, a New York wardrobe
consultancy, and co-author, with his Visual Therapy partner Joe Lupo,
of Life in Color: The Visual Therapy Guide to the Perfect Palette for Fashion, Beauty, and You!. Says Garza,

"I love a flattering, clean backdrop with a statement piece–a pop of color."

According to Forbes:

This year, the emphasis is on bold, chunky jewelry–a triple-strand of
big beads; a thick, geometric bangle; an oversized ring. Perhaps as a
reaction to tough economic times, precious jewels have been stowed
away, replaced with semiprecious stones such as lapis, pyrite and
quartz; and materials such as horn, resin and even Lucite.

"I think
today, to walk around with a stack of diamond bangles doesn't feel
right," Garza says.

His and Lupo's picks for great daytime jewelry:
chunky, midsized hoop earrings; wood cuff bracelets; and turquoise bead

Don't let the sagging economic times take away the bling in your life! These trendy choices allow you a sense of wealth without the…wealth! Moissanite, for instance, can make you feel like a million bucks without (again)…the million bucks!
