Hot Jewelry Trends for The Holiday Season

While this season’s fashions are slim and feminine, jewelry has gone clunkier, chunkier and even a little retro. Everything from a winter sweater to a little black dress can shine with the help of a few select pieces.

According to the fashion, long, layered necklaces that hit the waist are a must. Also big are those that can be wrapped around numerous times at varying lengths so that the same necklace can be used for different looks at different times of the day. Likewise, beads are back and bigger than ever. You can wrap your neck or wrist in stunning strands and create an eye-catching accent.
Here are some other trends that can be expected this season:
- Green in all shades, especially olive. Yellow gold also is back in vogue.
- Bracelets, oversized and stacked, that mix and match textures and colors. Charm bracelets also are making a comeback from the 1970s. In fact, the more abundant and heavily charmed they are, the better. Layering different charm bracelets on one wrist is another popular look.
- Necklaces of different shapes and sizes – worn at the same time. Each “layer” is a different length and of a different type. For example, one necklace might be beaded, another might be longer with charms, and the third might be longer still with a large pendant.

- Dangling earrings with beads. In a nod to the ’80s, these accents are bohemian yet feminine and romantic.
- Cameos that add a level of sophistication to the neutral or natural colors and flowing soft fabrics of this season’s clothes. They can serve a dual purpose by acting as pins or pendants.
- Rings that are big, bold and accented by diamonds. Stackable rings in tri-gold (white, rose and yellow) can be mixed and matched for an individual look.

Amulets, Talismans and Charms

      Throughout the ages, men and women have used gemstones and crystals in personal ornaments and body decorations as bewitching jewelry. Wearing them as charms, talismans or amulets, they were believed to possess the power to ward off evil spirits (or attract benevolent ones), keep one safe from harm, or to find love. To this day, many people of all ages and from all walks of life believe in the magical power of certain gems and make bewitching jewelry part of their everyday attire.
Take gold, for instance. Since time immemorial, it has captured the fascination of all people, and is one of the cornerstones of the science of alchemy. Gold is used to enhance the power of other gemstones, hence its popular use as a setting. It is also believed to attract wealth and influence, because the wearer is perceived to be strong and powerful.
Pearls is another example of bewitching jewelry. In the olden days, if a maiden wanted a man to fall in love with her, she would put pearls ground into a fine powder into a glass of wine and somehow get him to drink it. A pretty costly way to catch a man, that method. Nowadays, wearing pearls is believed to enhance one’s inner character and bring about peace and serenity.
Bewitching jewelry is not confined to fashionable purposes. The Indian warriors of old used to have swords that were adorned with garnets, secure in the belief that this would bring them luck in battle. Today, garnet jewelry presented as a gift signifies the giver’s feelings of eternal love and commitment. It can also be worn as a charm to increase sensuality and sexuality.
Sapphires are benevolent examples of bewitching jewelry. Aside from preserving friendships and promoting loyalty, they are also believed to protect the wearer from capture. Turquoise is likewise popular as a talisman because of its alleged property of changing colors when the wearer is in peril. Plus, it is used in amulets in many cultures because it is believed to be a bringer of luck.
      There are many, many other beliefs regarding the use of gemstones as bewitching jewelry. They may be worn as talismans, charms, amulets or simply as fashion accessories. But for many people today, as in the ancient times, jewels are chosen not only for their beauty, but for the perceived benefits that they will bring to the wearer as well.

Handmade Beaded Jewelry

You are looking to buy a handmade beaded jewelry piece, in particular a handmade necklace, but how to choose the right one? Not sure of which style or length would look great on you? Then read on and follow these tips:
The most important factor in choosing the correct handmade necklace design for yourself starts with looking at your reflection in the mirror. Consider the following:
• Are you tall with a slender neck? Then chocker or collar necklaces are for you, as well as princess necklaces (18” long) that sit at the base of your neck.
• If you have a short or neck, then wear the longer necklaces – matinee (23” long), opera (30”-36” long), a graduated necklace, or go for the very long lariats or rope necklaces (+36” long). Their long visual lines will help in extending the length of your neck.
• If you are of average height and weight, then all the options above are open to you.
• If your neck tends to be on the chunky side, then we recommend staying away from the short length necklaces and wearing graduated necklaces, the longer opera or rope necklaces.
• Then ponder the “cleavage issue.” Are you modest and tend to wear clothing that doesn’t show cleavage? Then necklaces that are short or very long, that tend to draw the eye away from your chest, are the ones you are looking for. Or are you daring and flirty? If showing some dйcolletй is your style, then having the knot of a lariat in the center of your breastbone or a pendant ending there will certainly bring additional glances. It makes a difference where a necklace sits on your chest, and you must ask yourself what are you trying to emphasize, or not?
All right, next you are ready to reflect on fashion and style factors. You know that handmade beaded jewelry is the perfect solution – so many gorgeous styles to choose from. But which one is best for you? That depends on your style and existing wardrobe.
When thinking about your style think about your body type – is it petite? Then we suggest wearing pieces that are dainty – smaller beads that, even when layered, will not overwhelm your size. Larger women will feel comfortable wearing the chunkier, heavier beads that are so fashionable today. Lifestyle is also of overwhelming importance, what do you spend your week doing? What are weekends like? No doubt your need for handmade beaded jewelry changes, from causal to dressy and everything in between as do your outfits.
