5 Jewelry Trends for Spring 2011 ...

[If some of you ladies are wondering what bling to strut come spring, this guest post by the lovely Maria (Beauty is Within) got you covered. Aren't these pretty? They make you excited for spring, don't they? ]

Spring is just around the corner, and regardless of your budget, you can always find nice pieces of jewelry to update your wardrobe. This spring season there are many jewelry trends that just about any fashionista can appreciate - from big and bold to simple and chic.
1. Whimsical and fun

I like to think that unique, playful jewelry should be a trend every season, so I like that designers have come out with pieces that appeal to our child-like aesthetics.

I came across this TightropeTightrope<a href="http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2F">http://www.etsy.com%2Flisting%2F63623700%2Ftightrope-walk-yoga-necklace&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGk_BfBEPDq92k_26Fdbe8QpzwAPA"> walkwalk<a href="http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2F">http://www.etsy.com%2Flisting%2F63623700%2Ftightrope-walk-yoga-necklace&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGk_BfBEPDq92k_26Fdbe8QpzwAPA">YOGAYOGA<a href="http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2F”">http://www.etsy.com%2Flisting%2F63623700%2Ftightrope-walk-yoga-necklace&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGk_BfBEPDq92k_26Fdbe8QpzwAPA">” necklace">http://www.etsy.com%2Flisting%2F63623700%2Ftightrope-walk-yoga-necklace&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGk_BfBEPDq92k_26Fdbe8QpzwAPA">necklace ($64) on Etsy created by Berlin designer, François Locher, which features a hand painted miniature woman on a silver pendulum swinging freely on a delicate sterling silver chain.
2. The statement necklace

Statement necklaces continue to make their way onto the fashion scene. After all, isn’t fashion about making a statement about who you are? This is a great piece to express your unique fashion sense. For Spring 2011 this type of necklace can include big, bold gemstones with oversized chains or a bib necklace with a unique design.

I like this vintage Sarah Coventry silver plated necklace ($295.85 at Asos.com) featuring a bib style with a layered cut-out design, drop metal strands on a cable chain.

3. Geometric Shapes

(Your reaction) Thank you!


** **Clean, linear shapes in bright gold or silver or complex structural geometric patterns just may be the trend for the future, not just for 2011.

This geometricclampbraceletbyFreedom ($35 at TopShop.com) is one part bold and two parts fabulous.
