Spring and Summer 2008 Jewelry Trends
Spring has finally arrived, and with it comes a host of new fashion trends and ideas. One area where spring 2008 will really sparkle is jewelry. Jewelry styles will run the gamut from classic designs to the sculpted and bold. The trends for jewelry are pretty much the same as those for fashion in general. Expect interesting and bold color combinations.
Gemstone jewelry will take on fashion importance this spring. Colors in semi-precious gemstones will be vibrant and luminous - in cabochons and briolettes and in every style of jewelry. Many varieties of quartz have become very popular recently, because their colors are brilliant.
This is no time for a wimpy drop necklace. You need a substantial pendant that really makes a fashion statement, and two of the hottest colors will be yellow and its complementary color, purple.
Refreshing gemstones like Citrine, Yellow Topaz, Amber, and Chrysoberyl and simulated Canary Diamond jewelry, topaz glass beads and the Cubic Zirconia substitutes will keep you on top of seasonal jewelry trends! Like this lovely Citrine:
14k Gold Faceted Oval Citrine Pendant
Citrine is a transparent variety of silica mineral quartz, pale yellow to Madeira orange in all of its glorious golden color, which comes from the presence of iron. Citrine is a semiprecious gem that is also valued for its resemblance to the more expensive Topaz, yellow Sapphire or yellow Diamond.
A great counter point color for yellow is purple, which will also be highlighted this spring. Like this gorgeous pendant:
Lepidolite Window on the Sea Pendant
Geometric-shaped Lepidolite stones are bezel-set in a triangular-shaped sterling silver pendant. The matching Lepidolite nugget necklace is finished with sterling silver end caps.
Or you could invest in another kind of yellow that is always popular and goes with everything - gold! I know it's expensive, but it will last you a lifetime and beyond. Like this gold pendant:
Big Bold Chunk of Gold
18k Gold engraved heart-shaped pendant with hand-carved flowers and leaves in intricate patterns. For centuries, Italy has been famous for producing exquisite pieces of Gold jewelry, and this Renaissance-inspired pendant continues that tradition.
