Accentuate beautiful arms with a cuff bracelet

A cuff bracelet is a wonderful nighttime accessory.Bracelets are wonderful wrist-adornments, but how thick should they be? If you’re looking to don only one item while still making a statement, consider a cuff bracelet.

Beautiful and bold all at once, cuff bracelets can be found in any metal and adorned with gemstones, or be sleek and simple.

Women who are heading to the office may want to consider leaving their cuff bracelets at home. Wearing them during work hours may be distracting, but slip one into your purse for after-hours cocktails.

Once the sun sets, cuff bracelets are good to go. Pair one with a strapless dress or formfitting top. The look will call attention to your arms and flatter your wrists.

Bracelets of every size and shape can be beautiful, but cuff bracelets truly make a statement. Put one on and watch everyone turn in your direction.ADNFCR-2807-ID-19835167-ADNFCR

So what were people talking about? The price of gold, of course, is on everyone’s minds. As it continues to skyrocket, and the economy continues to weigh on the minds of many customers, the world’s jewelers have been busy finding creative ways to bring the public gorgeous new products that are available in every buyer’s price range. In many instances that means supplementing gold with other stunning metals. Everything from white tungsten, to steel to perennial favorite silver is being incorporated into the new designs.

That increasing use of white metals may explain the growing prevalence in black and white color schemes on everything from bracelets to necklaces to rings. And thanks to “Sex and the City 2,” black diamonds are making a huge comeback. Combining those two hot trends, we found several gorgeous examples of black and white diamonds combined in gorgeous pieces that will be available very shortly on

Stay tuned for more video interviews, photos and coverage of the JCK Las Vegas Show.

Butterfly earrings are absolutely adorable.Mariah Carey isn’t the only girl who adores butterflies. We think these incredible insects make for astounding additions to one’s jewelry collection.

Necklaces, bracelets and earrings adorned with butterfly shapes are perfect accessories for the spring.

To begin, try purchasing a necklace that has a butterfly pendant on it. The beautiful bugs are synonymous with femininity and beauty. Feel free to choose one that’s covered in diamonds – the extra sparkle will make you smile.

A butterfly charm bracelet is another must-have. They’ll remind everyone that the warm weather is here.

Finally, butterfly earrings are beyond cute. Butterfly-shaped posts or dangling earrings are dainty, darling and just divine.

A coral bracelet is perfect for the summer.Corals look pretty in the sea, but we think they look best on our bodies!

Jewelry created from this stone is not only gorgeous, it’s perfect for this time of year. If you’re headed to the beach or just spending time in the sun, a coral item is a perfect accessory.

This casual stone is perfect for ladies who don’t like flashy jewelry. If you’re a coral novice, try wearing a necklace or bracelet with a small coral stone on it.

If you want all eyes on you, choose a bolder coral piece. A beaded necklace or bracelet will certainly command attention. If you’re feeling daring, mix in some turquoise and watch everyone’s head turn in your direction.

As always, try to match your jewelry with your personality. Don’t forget – pearls aren’t the only sexy gems from the sea! ADNFCR-2807-ID-19740066-ADNFCR

Bracelets – you can never have enough

You can never have too many braceletsWhen it comes to bracelets, how many is too much? There is some debate as to how far women who are longing to look trendy should go with this look.

As for us, we think you can never have too many accessories on your arm. So take out your jewelry box and pull out every bracelet you own.

For starters, don’t be afraid to mix and match colors. In fact, we advise it. Sporting ten or more of the same color bracelets on one arm is just fine, but monochrome can get a little dull. Mix and match tints for serious arm candy for sure!

Don’t hesitate to mix sizes either. The different sizes will really make the look complete. Variety is the spice of life.

Remember, bracelets are here to make us feel beautiful and confident so go to town!

Emeralds: fantastic jewelry pieces

Emerald RingSt. Patrick’s Day may be over, but emeralds – those green, gorgeous gems – are always and forever in style.

So where does this special stone come from, you may ask? Emeralds mostly originate in Columbia – they are found in the three main mining areas of Muzo, Coscuez, and Chivor. Nature gave us a gift and we’re accepting it graciously.

If you’re looking to add some color to what you’re wearing, emeralds are the perfect go-to jewelry pieces. Don’t worry about matching them to your outfit – the gems go with everything.

We suggest sporting an emerald cocktail ring that’s surrounded by small, white diamonds or, perhaps try to work some emerald stud earrings.

Brides-to-be may also opt to skip the usual diamond engagement ring and ask for an emerald gemstone from their hubby-to-be. It’s a perfect look for today’s modern woman.

The next time you can’t decide what jewelry you should accessorize with, just heed our motto – Go with the Green!ADNFCR-2807-ID-19677911-ADNFCR

Bracelets can be creative too

Charm bracelets will never go out of style.Many women will sport a unique chain or pendant in a jiffy, but when it comes to wrist-wear, their mind goes blank. Girls, don’t forget that wrist pieces can be completely extraordinary and creative. Think of bracelets as the ultimate arm candy – aside from Johnny Depp.

One of our favorite bangle bracelets at the moment has a locket attached to it. You heard us right. This jewelry piece, which allows you to put a photo inside, will make you feel like a princess while you steal glances at your prince.

Another adorable accoutrement that we love right now is the charm bracelet. This vintage accessory is as old as the day is long, but it can be pulled off nowadays as well. Collect dangly doohickeys that define your personality and flaunt them loud and proud.

Men can get in on the bracelet movement, too. Now dudes can sport items that won’t cramp their style, but instead enhance it. Some bracelets for guys look like handcuffs or are made up of funky shapes. Remember, a little creativity never hurt anyone.ADNFCR-2807-ID-19659833-ADNFCR

Great jewelry is the key to looking and feeling great this spring!

A single bracelet goes a long wayHoping to stand out a little when the spring weather hits? Believe it or not, there’s more to looking hot than picking all the right clothes. What good will a beautiful, sexy black pencil skirt do for you if it’s paired with hum-drum jewelry?

This season, the secret to appearing like you spent hours getting ready will begin with three little words: jewelry, jewelry, jewelry.

One of the most time-efficient ways to look completely glamorous is to don a statement necklace or bold earrings, no matter what time of day it is. If you’re headed to work, try a casual silver chain with a heart-shaped pendant. For nighttime, make sure that your earrings sparkle.

Also, don’t forget about the magic of a reliably sexy set of bangle bracelets. Even during daytime hours, a little jangle on your wrists can lift your spirits almost as much as the warm weather.

Of course, a watch is a dramatic addition to any spring wardrobe. Match a plain-Jane black shirt with a shimmery watch and you’re golden!

Whatever you decide, make sure that your accessories are comfortable to wear. Fashion does not need to be painful!
