This year's holiday colors and trends are royally inspired. Rich colors reign in dark red, purple and black tones. Trends include elaborate cross and crown pendants, with layers and layers of muted chain, lace and velvet ribbon trimming necklines.
Don't hold back when it comes to pendants! Big, bold focal pieces add depth and emotion to each jewelry design. Ornate crosses take on a Gothic look when strung with velvet, lace or antique chain. And festive regal styles begin with large fleur-de-lis and antiqued crown charms and pendants.
Holiday red is back in full swing. Festive drops and pendants sparkle and shine in rich red shades, from crimson to cranberry--found in Swarovski® crystal beads siam and burgundy.Gold beads and chain balance the ubiquitous reds and create a romantic mood.
Luxurious purple, the traditional color of royalty, is found in amulets, centering its wearer with charming confidence. Cabochons and drops are popular in midnight purples, such as deep amethyst and Swarovski® crystal purple velvet. To keep the mood dark and mysterious, mix classic smoky quartz and jet black for a tone-on-tone style.
