It’s been a trying time economically but we’re starting to see a glimmer of light at the end of a long tunnel. Fashion, as usual, displays hints and themes that are relevent to our current state of affairs. Hence why the winter jewelry trends of 2010 – 2011 show a return to the basics, with a few over-the-top pieces showcasing an emerging sense of hope and celebration.
Take pearls for instance. Pearls are seeing a definite resurgence and for good reason – they imply a sense of purity and hope. They represent simple beauty and remind us of jewelry “way back when.” This gives us a connectivity to our past that’s needed when times are tough.
In addition, eco-friendly jewelry has never been…friendlier! People are becoming increasingly aware of the global implications of their fashion choices.
Here are some other pieces to include in your collection:
- Antique, Vintage, Retro & New Combinations
Dramatic, unique, unusual necklaces (simple… yet exotic)
Eclectic Natural Look
Crystal, Rhinestone & Venetian Art Glass
Black, Grey and Neutrals
2011 Color Predictions
Faux & Real Pearls
Over-The-Top Rings (not gaudy, but daring)
