Rings

We saw two designers who liked to pile on the rings, but the two styles were very distinct. Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra fit cocktail rings onto every finger in every color. In contrast to Van Cleef & Arpels’s decadent art Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra rings, Cartier kept it modern and simple. While embracing the plentiful look, they used simple gold bands, multiple on one finger, to avoid excess.

Bracelets

As Cartier developed and popularized costume jewelry, she was never one to simplify her Cartier love jewelry. True to the Cartier image, the current direction under Karl Lagerfeld does not stray. In the Spring/Summer collection, Cartier runway models adorned their wrist in Cartier love bracelets. In the resort show, they were bedecked several chain Amulette de Cartier bracelets. While  used several stacked in Cartier juste un clou bracelets, Elie Saab opted for a similar effect, but simplified. The golden cuff complimented the blush tones of her 1970s-inspired designs.

Necklaces

True to trend, the statement necklaces of the show were either dazzling and ornate or striking yet minimal. At Oscar de la Renta, the pretty patterns and colors were complimented by equally colorful and beautiful Hermes jewelry pieces. Our favorite was a beautiful floarl design in yellows and blues. Ralph Lauren made a minimalist statement with large, Hermes Pop H pendant necklaces that matched the shades of his diverse color palette.

With the volatile markets and growth of designer replica Hermes jewelry purchases over the last 5 years, there has been an increase in the availability or pre-owned Hermes jewelry on the market. Also known as estate, pre-owned, used and refurbished, there are hundreds of stores out there as well as online that buy, promote and sell the items. However, whether to buy it or not is a totally different question.

The biggest advantage of buying a replica Hermes jewelry over brand new pieces is the price. Pre-owned Hermes jewelry has to be cheaper than its brand new counterparts often between 30-50%. And considering that worn jewelry shows very little signs, a great piece can be a great steal.

But this doesn’t mean that used jewelry is completely brand new either. Prongs may have widened and clasps may have loosened. So if you do find a piece that you love, make sure that the fix all the tiny glitches before you pay up.

A lot of pre-owned Hermes jewelry will come unverified. Silver may be passed off as gold and zircon as diamonds. So be very, very careful when making these purchases and ask for appraisals or try to stick to reputed and trusted sources such as LuxuryClover.cn

Fashion Daily jewelry

Unfortunately, Fashion Week has drawn to a close. However, that means we can finally round up the best of the jewelry trends from the most fashionable week of the season. Here is a list of top 5 of our favorite trends straight off the runway at New York Fashion Week.

1. Bibs and Chokers

J. Crew kept the jewelry fresh and colorful for spring. We loved the bright, floral accent perfect for the bloom of the springtime season. In a start contrast to J. Crew was Pamella Roland. She kept it simple and chic with a thick-banded choker in black. This monochrome effect is great for those who like to avoid the bright colors, but still want to make a statement.

2. Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are back! These could be considered statement earrings, but they deserve a category of their own. Rag and Bone went for the classic hoop look in gold. Meanwhile. Derek Lam chose the oversized and wooden-beaded hoops to match their necklace.

3. Asymmetrical Necklaces

These necklaces make a minimalist statement. Jill Stuart and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry both opted to trade in size and symmetry for a look that’s memorable and understated. We love the asymmetrical look of these two necklaces. The designs are a much-needed update on the classic Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace.

4. Earthy Stones

Recently, natural, earthy and rough stones have started to trend. Cartier jewelry and Hermes jewelry both combined recent trends with earthy stones for a beautiful effect. Hermes jewelry used a flat, rock-like stone for a spin on the breastplate necklace. Cartier jewelry updated the earrings with an earthy-colored, rounded stone.

5. Van Cleef & Arpels Clover Earrings

The biggest trend of the week was, without question, the Van Cleef & Arpels Clover earrings. It seemed as if every designer had to have their own version of oversized or eye-catching earrings. We loved the modern metal chains worn on the catwalk for Alexander Wang and the simple single earring of the Tibi show.
