At no time are the elements of nature more expressive in their powers than during the change of seasons. The once bare branches of winter are now blooming with flowers and signify the onset of spring. This season many designers are focusing on organic themes that are set amongst ethereal backdrops. Spring runway shows gave fashion aficionados insight into the designers apparel but also on using jewelry as an integral part of the designer’s intended look to convey a specific theme. As you enter spring, allow the word “enrapture” to linger in your thoughts whenever you’re selecting jewelry to add to your ensemble.
When considering what pieces to add to your jewelry arsenal, think of what moods you want to exude this season. Whether you’re feeling casual, sensual, glamorous or mysterious; there seems to be a resurgence of romance and allure in all genres of spring accessories. For an exotic look that is sensual yet sophisticated, try and incorporate woods and resins into your jewelry arsenal. A unique cuff or an opulent necklace are savvy ways to incorporate these seemingly eccentric pieces into your look with ease. Feeling a little casual but still want your sex appeal to remain at the forefront? Infuse organic themes into your signature ensembles. This season, no symbol of nature has had a meteoric rise in jewelry than the leaf.
Leaf-themed jewelry has made an undeniable impact this season. Made from a number of semi-precious and precious metals, these gorgeous motifs are brought to life in the intricate detail that is often seen in these designs. Many designers are placing a lot of thought into every line that can be seen on an actual leaf in nature. Although the leaf motif is being used in various styles of jewelry, the most romantic adaptation comes in the form of a drop or chandelier earring. The elegant symbols of nature frame your face in delicate sensuality that is undeniably charming.
Some could argue that the circle is a shape utilized in a myriad of jewelry designs. However, during spring it represents something a little more poignant. Spring seems to bring out one’s joyous mood, making many of us want to go outside and take the beauty of nature. A circle represents the cycle of life in many cultures and its form can be seen in many aspects of nature. This season the runways were filled with a myriad of representations of circle-themed jewelry such as voluminous chain necklaces, bold cuff bracelets and sleek earrings. If you want to try this look and still exude an aura of elegance, try pieces fashioned from thin gold or sterling silver that are swathed in a subtle yet sophisticated hammered surface.
Shimmering gemstones are a must have any time of the year but try a lighter-hued bauble this spring. Instead of incorporating rich gemstones such as African amethyst, garnet and olivine; opt for sensual yet sun-drenched stones such as citrine, blue topaz, carnelian and peridot. All of these colors evoke the romantic essence of the season and add a touch of sparkle to spring’s must have looks.
Spring is all about making your signature style seem effortless, following these simple suggestions gives your look that added panache to take your look from decent to dazzling in seconds. So take advantage of spring’s gorgeous sunsets, sumptuous gemstones and organically-themed jewelry while creating a look that has your uniquely-exquisite style written all over it.
