Jewelry Trends for 2007

By: Kingfisher
One way to predict jewelry trends is to observe what is shown on the runway during Fashion Week, another way is to watch what celebrities are wearing and perhaps even a better way is to see what is new in the jewelry supply catalogues.

At the awards shows, the celebrities wore quite large tiered earrings with no neck adornment. The bracelets were large and intricate. If a ring was worn, it was large and frequently showed a colored stone. If the celebrity wore a necklace, it was usually paired with small solitare earrings.

During Fashion week, we didn’t see the huge bohemian or gypsy jewelry of last year. The models wore only a couple of pieces of jewelry to accessorize their outfits. Clothing has gone more minimalist, feminine and even ladylike. The jewelry was worn to accent, not overpower, the clothing.

Models wore simple but chunky chains and layers of chains with a variety of shapes were seen. Some of the chains were sprinkled with beads, with others accented with small charms. Mixed metals, using gold and silver together provide a more casual look.

Cuff bracelets were seen on many of the models. Some of the cuffs are large but well fitted for easy wear and copper is being shown along with silver in some of these bracelets. Other cuffs were shown with a mass of brilliant beads.

Statement rings with lots of color are being seen everywhere from the runway to the red carpet and in magazines. Large colored stones are shown set in gold and silver, but even bead rings with a cluster of brilliantly colored glass and crystal beads are being worn in a more casual setting. Some of these rings are being worn on the index finger.

The big news in the jewelry catalogs is color. Swarovski has introduced out intensely colored crystals. Freshwater pearls in bright turquoise, fuchsia, lime and peach with unusual shapes are available for the jewelry designer along with a wide array of Millefiori beads for added color.

Brilliantly colored cords in leather, rubber and niobium are emerging to be used with the simple pendants being shown during Fashion Week. These simple pendants can be leaves, flowers or birds in gold or silver.

Save your big pieces from last year as they will eventually come back, but add a few large classic chains, cuffs and a big colored ring to update your jewelry wardrobe for 2007.
