Fashion jewelry are those unique pieces that add personality and style to your ensemble without the expensive metals and stones that would categorize them as "fine" jewelry. Trendsetting jewelry is often described as fashion jewelry. When you want to experiment with the latest looks, fashion jewelry pieces are your go-to accessories. You can purchase a myriad of gorgeous pieces without spending a lot of money. The trick is knowing what to look for while making your decision.
When buying fashion jewelry consider the color, design, texture and radiance.
Color : Fashion jewelry comes in an array of all of the gemstone colors. Plastic, glass, vermeil, resin and various plating can be made to resemble the vibrant colors of gemstones. Even a simple piece featuring a vibrant color can be absolutely mesmerizing and makes a bold statement.
Design : Remember, fashion jewelry is all about what fits your personality. The designs could be geometrical, floral, animal, etc. It's important to select something that showcases who you are. You are wearing the jewelry, do not lot the jewelry wear you.
Texture : Some of the most exquisite pieces of fashion jewelry combine textures. Many designers are combining the smooth vs. rough, woven vs. silky, etc.
Radiance : Many people love certain gemstones, such as diamonds or citrine, because of their brilliance. Many designs feature crystals, cubic zirconia and glass to add sparkle. If you do not want to pay the high price point of diamonds, opt for a fashion jewelry piece.
Quick Tip on Wearing Fashion Jewelry
Many fashion jewelry designs feature bold colors, intricate designs and some are over-sized. It is important to make sure that you do not over accessorize while wearing fashion jewelry. For example; if you are wearing an outfit that is very simple, you can afford to wear an over-sized bangle or chunky necklace. If your ensemble features patterns then it is best to choose a piece that is less busy.
Choose pieces that complement the look you are going for. For example; if you would are going for a romantic look, try a vintage inspired necklace. If you want to look to be edgier, try pieces that feature sleek sterling silver and geometric designs.
