Elegance blooms in this season's jewelry designs.
Bigger is bigger when you’re talking about this season’s beautiful baubles. Statement necklaces drenched in diamonds, not to mention large cuffs and glittering bracelets worn over long sleeves and gloved wrists, were high on shine at fall/winter shows hosted by Gucci and Balenciaga. Pearls of all shapes, sizes and colors were paraded down the runways, but Mikimoto kept it classic with cascading strings of iridescent pearls dotted with diamond clusters. Jewelers proffered eye-catching cocktail rings and glittering brooches. For watches, it’s all about the details: faces inlaid with mother-of-pearl or surrounded with pavé diamonds. The sentiment: Flowers may fade, but diamonds and pearls never age.
