Geometric Jewelry!

The look is stylish, and edgy – jewellery that relies on geometric shapes looks urban chic when styled on the neck, ears or even fingers and arms of a fashionista. Why? Well the answer is simple – it makes you look even more feminine, given that the angular bling compliments the soft lines of a feminine neck – or arm and the delicate rounded tips of the ears.

Wear a necklace with triangles – the look says smart and flares out attractively against the neck. This is a fabulous trend this year simply because geometric jewellery cannot go wrong where the fashion factor is concerned. Wear a pair of square earrings instead of the usual hoops or small square danglers. Geometric earrings are a perfect way to accessories a monochrome outfit. Silver triangles on the ears also look stylish and playful for an evening out. Experiment with many triangles linked together instead of just one.

If you are daring, and love loud colours then go for a geometric necklaces in bright colours – either in one colour or multi-coloured. Either way, they are a great way to jazz up a boring outfit. Earrings with geometric designs, colourful geometric pattern on plain round studs, geometric shaped wire bracelets the list goes on.

Geometric jewellery in neon shades is another hot favourite with necklaces, bracelets, pendants, and earrings – wear a bright yellow neon necklace with triangles with a hot pink top and blue pants – you will look like a flower – but make sure you can carry off the look because that combination is not for everyone!

Geometric shaped rings also look great – you can get them in metal shades or textured. Wooden is another great choice for earrings and quirky assembled necklaces or stacked bracelets. Browse the internet for some fabulous designs for geometric jewellery.

However, be warned that you might have a problem accessorizing your geometric jewellery with your outfits because they are a little difficult to pair with traditional clothes, Indian-wear, or something with too much fluff and flounce. If you are someone who wears mostly monochromes or sober colours, this jewellery is a fun way to brighten up your outfit

Bringing on the drama!

PicMonkey Collage

Dangling earrings is the hottest trend ! Nothing personifies drama and chic as much as the danglers. Attention-grabbing and incredibly sexy, one is almost always split for choice while heading out to look for them, and there are different kinds of danglers for almost every occasion, and for every kind of attire. From the diamond and gold ones, which really bring on the bling, one can also opt for metal danglers, gold-plated danglers, beaded ones, wooden ones etc…
Danglers have made quite a fashion statement, and they’re all over the run-way and just off it as well. Every other fashionable lady seems to be taking to danglers, and how! From the more chic, sophisticated danglers, to the fun, funky, and crazy ones, they have grabbed attention, and they are here to stay. Dangling earrings are turning out to be such statement pieces that it’s advisable to go easy on other kinds of jewellery when wearing them. A little-black dress may seem like the safe way out for most people, but gold dangling chain earrings are really all that one needs to make sure that the oomph factor comes across, no matter what.
Cocktail rings too are very much in vogue, and again, the versatility of these rings is amazing! No girl would say no to a big rock on her finger, especially when the rock in question is a huge diamond, but cocktail rings need not be insanely expensive to look sophisticated and unique. From dinner dresses, to a cardigan, they will go with almost everything, and they will manage to glam up almost everything. Since it is so prominent in itself, it is advisable to not wear other rings or bracelets along with it, because it can get cluttered and distracting. Cocktail rings need very little to support their impact. They’re hot, and they’re really, really trendy!
Cat eyes sunglasses! This is another new trend which has hit the fashion circles, and it looks like this new year is not about being subtle at all! What it’s really about is making sure that the drama and the impact is retained, and that understated is an overused word! The cat-eye glasses will stand out immediately, because they give off an incredibly feminine, yet powerful, playful vibe. They’re really dramatic, and they’re very unapologetic about it. A lot of the fashionable celebrities have been spotted sporting these sexy new shades, and in funky colours too! Some have gone so far as to mix another hot trend, neon, with the cat-eye glasses!
This year, it’s all about getting noticed, being dramatic and expressing yourself in every way possible. Demure, understated and subtle are old words.

Big is in – Chunky jewellery is a rage!


source

Earlier women advocated the dainty look. Tiny and delicate rings, elegant pendants, studs for the ears or teardrop earrings – nothing too loud or flashy. Fashion was all about being understated. This concept has undergone a massive overhaul – women like to be noticed and how!
Neon shades of yellow, pink, purple and orange have replaced the sober pastels of yore, brightly coloured ballerina flats or chunky platform heels and wedges with large flower embellishments have replaced the dainty kitten heeled sandals and large statement rings; cocktails rings, huge danglers and big pendants have overshadowed the dainty jewellery so favoured by women a few years ago.
Oversized jewellery with abstract designs and bright colours are not only being worn by the young women of today, this trend has caught the fancy of older women as well. The style is hippy and fun and looks very good if it is paired with the right ensemble. They add a fun visual element to all outfits and can be paired effortlessly with all kinds of outfits – even formal wear if you are careful about how you go about it.
Such jewellery is easily available and suits all budgets as they are sold everywhere – from high end showrooms to small shops. In fact, the major pro of this style is that it is available. Young women like picking up chunky bracelets, bangles, pendants and earrings to wear with a plain white tee and jeans outfit or A-line tunics and leggings at roadside flea markets without a thought. A note of caution though, like all styles, this one has its own dos and don’ts.
“If you pair a chunky bracelet or earrings with clothing that also has many colours and designs then it doesn’t work – the ensemble just looks confused,” says pretty young thing Mishka, sporting a large owl pendant worn over a pastel tee-shirt. Also, don’t overdo it – wear one chunky piece at a time. If you team a chunky bracelet with over sized earrings and a large pendant, chances are that you will end up looking like a veritable fashion disaster.

So go ahead, add some panache to your outfit!

Bride Essentials

13 Sep

Happy Thursday Lovelies,

For a bride take a peek.

I added hints of subtle blue for “something blue.” I used sterling silver, cultivated fresh water pearls, rose quartz, and chalcedony. This jewelry would be perfect for the effortless bride in a chiffon dress.

Prices will vary upon request.

Handmade with love,
essentjewels
