Trendy, funky, “statement” jewelry is a fun and inexpensive way to finish off that cute LBD, but authentic jewels make it classic, elevating the look to a whole new level. Whether for that special occasion or everyday glamour, we cherish these fine pieces for years, sometimes generations. For a look at what may be your new go-to piece, we visited some of our friends at St. Vital Centre in hopes of being dazzled with inspiration. And we were not disappointed.
Dripping in crystals
A key look all over the runways for summer and fall 2021 and who better to make it a possibility than Swarovski. The legendary Austrian company has mastered their craft of creating immediately classic designs with a modern flare. The rose-gold plated necklace is for those who are looking for a simple and elegant statement piece, one that will have all eyes on you.
Finally, they take centre stage! Whether you let them sparkle solo or layer them around others in the Mesmera collection, their complex shape will leave a unique, lasting impression.
Since the early ’50s, diamonds and sparkling gemstones generally stayed at the forefront... until Netflix’s The Crown brought them back to the spotlight. The moment Princess Di chose her engagement ring signaled the style’s return, and trust us, it isn’t going anywhere. As more people are attracted to the nontraditional style and are looking to add some hue, coloured gemstones will always be in high demand.
Classic mixed with contemporary
We loved and cherished the settings of our Mothers and Grandmothers, and now we adore them even more with these modern takes. We understand the appeal of returning to the traditional styles of yesteryear, but with a bit of an edge.
Bangles and bracelets
Another darling of the runways this year and a simple and quick way to elevate any look. Bangles and bracelets are a style you can truly make your own by stacking together with others, matching on both arms, or leaving one as the statement piece in a stylish outfit. If you’re waist-up dressing for your next Zoom call, make sure to show them off!
Whether you are shopping for the perfect gift or spoiling yourself, remember no matter your style, there is always a place for a little or a lot of bling.
