TRENDING TUESDAY…HORIZONTAL STONES

Having just been in Las Vegas at the largest jewelry show, I would LOVE to share an upcoming trend with you…HORIZONTAL STONES!

What do I mean? Well jewelers take stones and turn them sideways to create a unique piece.

Diamonds and MANY other stones are coming out in a new, fashionable, and wearable style! Instead of the ordinary setting we all have been seeing, why not spice it up with a new look?

Well that is what Jade Trau, the newest designer at Craig’s, has done with her jewelry line!

Seriously, who wouldn’t wear this ring!? It is GORGEOUS!

Setting the stone horizontally makes it unique and a piece anyone (and everyone) will remember!

TRENDING TUESDAY…LAYERING NECKLACE

Okay Girls… this trend is very hot right now. Layering necklaces!! It’s such an easy, fun, chic look!anna beck layered necklaces

Don’t be afraid to layer it up! There are 3 different necklaces  in this look. It’s a great way to instantly add the finishing touches to any outfit you wear.

 I like to achieve this look  by playing with different lengths and textures.

You can layer with any type of necklace; whether its gold, silver or pearls… Just like these,  “Honora Girls.”

Don’t forget Dad!

The next trend to come in the jewelry world is OPALS! Throughout the entire week at the jewelry show, opals were everywhere! We saw just as many black opals as we did white.
Black Opals look like the earth as seen from space. You can see the vibrant blues and greens.
White Opals have an iridescent and sparkly look to them while still being subtle.
