Kickin’ Off the Summer With All The Hottest Fashions!

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.

Fashion Jewelry Trends for Spring 2012

With the Vernal Equinox just a month away and the weather beginning to heat up, customers have been asking us at Bijou Trésor what we expect to be the big fashion jewelry trends for Spring of 2012. So we have compiled a list of items that we expect to be popular so you can blossom with the daisies, roses, daffodils, and irises!

Light Colors

Ruby Multishape CZ Statement Fashion Bracelet

Like hibernating bears leaving their caves, spring marks the awakening of the color pallet. Whereas bold colors like black, purple, maroon, and navy blend seamlessly with the darkness of winter, spring allows for softer tones. Sorbet color schemes with light pinks, purples, yellows, oranges, lime, and of course white comprise the rainbow of March through May.

This exquisite Ruby Multishape CZ Statement Fashion Bracelet is a stunning example. The white cubic zirconia is patterned to contain soft ruby jewels that simply dazzle. Whether it is a mildly drizzly morning or a fabulously sunny afternoon, your wrist will radiate with these fashion bracelets.

 

Flower Rings

Kin Golden Rose Ring

If you want to be in bloom like Nirvana this spring, don’t beat around the bush; become the bush. The rose bush, that is.

Spring is the season of renewal, new life, and growth. So while chicks are hatching from eggs, baby critters are learning to walk, and flowers are bursting from the soil, you should share in that rebirth with new fashion jewelry. And what better way to symbolize your solidarity with Mother Nature than to actually represent her loveliest flowers upon your fingers.

Large Flower with Rose Swarovski Crystals Adjustable Ring

 

Within Bijou Trésor’s fashion rings collection, you will find beautiful flower rings such as this Kin Golden Rose Ring or the Large Flower with Rose Swarovski Crystals Adjustable Ring. Both of these lovely pieces are expertly crafted and display your free-spirited personality to the world.

Vintage Style Jewelry

Vintage style jewelry harkens back to days of old, sometimes to the fairly recent Elizabethan Era and other times to the long-ago of ancient Greece and Rome. Whatever the historical period, the styles of those times remain relevant today.

Vintage Waterfall Amethyst Swarovski Crystal Designer Choker

The George Santayana quote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” does not apply to the world of fashion jewelry. For the past is simply another treasure chest of ideas from which to draw inspiration. And repeating that fashion is not being “condemned;” rather, it is a renewal of such styles, much like the spring flowers emerging from the dirt of the previous year’s florae.

See how this Vintage Waterfall Amethyst Swarovski Crystal Designer Choker combines elements of ancient Europe with modern American sensibilities in a rebirth of antique elegance. You will turn heads while strutting into a room wearing this vintage style necklace.
