Bold rings, necklaces and bracelets are big this year October 20, 2008

Posted by Marjorie Cunningham of Marjorie’s Cracked Plate Jewelry

Everywhere you look in 2008, you’ll see bigger, bolder jewelry.  While the trend is to wear less jewelry, the jewelry that is being worn is large and more unique.  Celebrities and fashion designers are wearing more statement pieces and large, colorful show stoppers. I’ve picked a few of my favorites to give you some ideas on where you can start with accessorizing jewelry.

One of the biggest trends is chunky cocktail rings.  Look at the size of this ring on Angelina Jolie—and what a gorgeous color!

I particularly like this beautiful coin charm bracelet by Pianegonda, a sterling silver Italian jewelry line. This piece is stunning and yet simple.

Another designer of this year’s big, bold jewelry look is Stephen Webster.   Christina Aguilera is shown here wearing his jewelry.
