We’ve been doing a bit of runway research ourselves, and have gathered predictions of this fall’s most fashionable jewelry looks.

Color Trend:  Blue Hue

One of the most prominent colors of the past few seasons, blue will continue to be a must-have color for the fall 2012 season, especially in ultra marine shades. Combining unexpected shades of blue will be an essential styling message for the fall season. The easiest way to achieve this look is with blue gemstone rings, pendants and earrings.

Difference between Fashion Jewelry & Costume Jewelry

If you are a person, who is looking to know the difference between fashion jewelry and costume jewelry, you are in the right place. I would like to discuss about this topic as many people are asking the same question over and over again. Costume jewelry is known as the earliest type of jewelry items, which was produced as an adornment for the common people. During the ancient time, for complimenting a particular costume, people where using costume jewelry. This practice basically started during the nineteen century. As this jewelry is made by using non reusable and cheap materials, it was basically purchased by the people to wear only with some specific outfit.

The main purpose of the costume jewelry was to use it only for a short span of time as they were made by using low quality products. Most of the ladies during ancient times had the collection of various costume jewelry depending on the outfits they wear. They were also using this jewelry as a trend. However, costume jewelries are not as expensive as the other original jewelry products. Read more of this post

Accessorizing Your Favorite LBD (Little Black Dress)!

The wonderful thing about the little black dress is that it doesn’t draw attention to itself and looks like a different dress on each person. Accessories such as jewelry, scarves, and shoes help set each dress apart. Its best to accessorize according to the occasion, so choose accessories that accentuate your assets to stand out from the rest.

Fashion Tips

Multi-drop Zirconite Pave Set Rhodium Plated Leaf CZ Necklace

Divide your little black dresses into two categories; those that have their own focal point, like an intricate neckline, sleeves,or  bead work, and the plain and simple ones. Dresses with their own focal points need very little accessorizing. A dash of color for the daytime or a hint of sparkle with jewelry for the nights are all that you need to get going.

The Solstice was a few weeks back and the 4th of July just ended with a bang, so now it is time to focus on the upcoming dog days of summer. Even though it seems that summer is winding down, there is still plenty more to get excited for! July has barely started, the entire month of August awaits, and school doesn’t start back up until September.

That leaves two whole months and change for summer festivals, sunshine, barbeques, bikinis, block parties, rollerblading, baseball games, SPF, beach volleyball, cruising with the top down, Call Me Maybe, flirting at the pool, roller coasters, long walks at sunset, and, most of all, sporting the finest summer fashions.

Turquoise Cabachones on Silver Sofia Clutch

Bijou Trésor has our finger on the pulse of the fashion world, so it should come as no surprise that we find rising talents like Clara Kasavina.

Born in the Ukraine, Kasavina met her future husband, Misha Berger, when they were children and would later meet him again when they had both moved to the United States. This fortuitous encounter would be the backbone of their company, where Berger works as a metal crafter and his wife creates unique pieces of fashion jewelry. Their New York studio allows them to spend time together making handbags, jewelry, and belt buckles. Read more of this post

Need a Mother’s Day Gift? Try Fashion Jewelry

Light Topaz Swarovski Crystal Pendant with Flexible Choker

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, less than three weeks away on May 13th, so it is time to start thinking about what gift you want to buy.

Remember, this is the woman who carried you for nine months, gave birth to you, raised you, and molded you into the fine woman or man you are today. So what is appropriate?

Bouquets are beautiful and always appreciated. But that seems like a good start, not an entire gift.

A spa day, movie outing, or brunch can be nice, but is that really special enough for Mother’s Day? Read more of this post
