Over the past few years jewelry has pushed and shoved its way to the forefront of fashion becoming bigger and bolder with each passing season. 2011 is no exception and the emerging trends are shaping up to be the most spectacular yet! Large statement pieces are all the rage and are no longer limited to bold necklaces (although they are still very trendy too!). Huge cocktail rings, long dangling earrings and layered bangle necklaces are stealing the spotlight on high fashion runways with their impactful shapes and eye-catching colors. Here’s just a few of my favorite jewelry trends for 2011.
Cabochon jewelry is a big hit for 2011. Whether it’s an intricate seed bead creation with bold cabochon focal points or a long elegant necklace strung with a single pendant, cabochon jewelry is in. I love the timeless appeal cabochons add to jewelry, they definitely fit right in with the vintage trends this year. If you want to try your hand at creating cabochon jewelry, check out our extensive selection of cabochons.

Dramatic bangle bracelets are also in style. To achieve an ultra-chic look try laying several bold bracelets.

A super fun jewelry trend emerging this year is jewelry with fringe and tassels. Designers are adding fringe to bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Suggestive of the 1970’s this fashion forward look can be dressed up or down whether you’re going for a carefree look or wish for sophisticated glamour.
