Confessions of a Jewellery Lover
Viewing entries tagged Tru-Diamonds Jewellery
It may be that diamonds are forever, but the pertinent question around accessories at the moment is “what are the hot jewellery trends for spring 2013’? There are generally three places we turn to in the search of sizzling seasonal style – the red carpet, runways and real life.
What we see popping up in all the right places and certainly earning its title as colour of the year – is the bright emerald. While they have been head-turners on red carpets for some time, emerald accessories are now becoming household must-haves. Get fashion forward with stunning pieces like the Boldly Beautiful Tru-Emerald Earrings, the Tru-Emerald Eternity Ring, or the Emerald Inspiration Pendant. Such a vivid colour also ties in neatly with another currently famous trend – that of colour blocking. A cross trend win-win situation!
Make a slightly bigger statement than last year’s studs with subtle drop earrings. Having started their appearance on red carpets in 2012 already, these petite yet eye-catching accessories will complement the romantic effects of spring 2013 styles. Drop in on the trend with the Drop Teardrop or the Drop of Elegance Earrings. While on the earring escapade, chandelier and dangle earrings are also getting a lot of play this season. Try something with a coloured stone like the Sparkling Pink Earrings to enhance the hang.
With the black and white trend dominating in the fashion departments, diamonds and onyx stones shine bright as accompanying accessories. The good news around this particular fad is that albeit popular now, the styles are enduring and almost timeless.
Another accessory tying in famously with the romantic theme of spring is the petite gold pendant. Delicate pieces like All Atwirl or the Fire and Ice Pendant enhance necklines all the while keeping the quixotic feeling of the seasonal style.
Many pregnant women fear the changes their bodies go through during the months of pregnancy. Soon-to-be moms feel obliged to wear baggy clothes. Yes, comfort is the main priority, but it doesn’t mean that you have to resort to oversized, baggy clothes which may end up making you look bigger.
It’s going to be interesting to see what beautiful, pregnant Kate wears throughout her pregnancy. It’s difficult to picture Kate in something baggy and that’s what you should avoid this year as a pregnant mom. It’s out with the old fashioned way of thinking and in with the modern look during your pregnancy.
Don’t hide your belly, but show it off with what you wear. Wearing what’s in your cupboard for the first few months of your pregnancy shouldn’t be too much of a problem, however, when clothes start getting tighter at any given stage then you know its time to get that maternity shopping done.
Don’t show off too much skin. You want to look beautiful, elegant and royal during these months- not trashy.
Wear tunics. These are great for when you are pregnant as it’s comfortable, yet very elegant at the same time.
Long, figure-hugging dresses are flattering and show off your bump perfectly. If it's chilly outside pair it with a blazer or cardigan.
The word ‘glamorous’ evokes many emotions. It’s a lady’s desire to be glamorous and feel glamorous in whatever it is that she’s wearing.
We often rely on celebrities to create certain styles for ourselves, so half the work is already done for us, we just need to imitate their look in order to add a little glamour into our lives.
Consider the points below and ensure that you are look more glamorous this year.
- It all starts with what’s underneath your clothing. Wear some sexy lingerie and feel the glam instantly. Being glamorous is all about how mysterious you can be. Wear any colour that you feel comfortable in. Black is always a good colour abut then again so is red...
- Curl your lashes and your hair. Curling your hair gives it that healthy look and screams glamorous. Curled lashes add a look of wonder and elegance.
- Smell glamorous. Scent is just as important as looks. Invest in a bottle of quality perfume and make sure that you smell great, all the time.
- Accessorise. Don’t be plain and boring. Spice up your look and accessorise with jewellery and fashionable hair clips.
- Make-up. Wear make-up that is perfect for your skin. If you do not have the correct foundation, you will ruin that glamorous look. Ask the shop assistant to assist you in buying the correct foundation. A good red lipstick will also always do the trick, it will ensure that you look as glamorous and gorgeous as ever. Bear in mind that without a good moisturiser, your make-up may not be as smooth. Purchase a quality day and night moisturiser for flawless, radiant skin. Your make up will love you.
Just because it is bleak and dreary, it does not mean that your choice of clothing has to mimic the weather. It is entirely possible to get your winter wardrobe looking as stylish and even as fun as the more heated seasons. Here’s how.
Start with the skin you are in. Top-to-toe moisturising is encouraged daily to leave skin soft and supple and avoid winter chapping. This includes the hair – a moisturising conditioner keeps the unsightly frizz and split ends at bay.
Bundling up does not mean looking bulky – in fact, that is exactly the look to avoid. Warm foundation pieces are the starting block of a hot layered look. Silk undies, body hugging vests and leggings are light pieces and great ways to keep in the heat without piling on the volume. When layering, the key is ensuring each item works alone as well as together with others and to accessorise wisely.
Fashion a fedora or bear a beret to add chic warmth to your ensemble.
Wrapping a scarf around your neck is close to the simplest style suggestion around. It is the perfect item to add that pop of colour or effortless edge to your outfit.
When you are faced with two equally radiant, enchantingly elegant and stylishly sophisticated choices, how can you possibly decide which is better for you? If you had a particular preference, you wouldn’t be in this pesky pickle. So if the choice between donning gold or silver jewellery has ever left your head spinning in a whirlpool of indecision, the below guidelines ought to help your vacillation.
Knowing your skin tone might make the jewellery colour dilemma less complicated. Some skin tones display certain colours beautifully while others seem to blend and almost fade into each other.
Warm skin tones look fabulous in earthy hues – shades of red, orange, yellow, brown and other warmer colours of the spectrum. They also favour the gilded metal, complementing the warmth of gold beautifully.
Cool skin tones prefer the jewel tones – hues of green, blue, pink, purple and other cooler shades of the spectrum. Silvery platinum metals simply pop on a cool skin tone.
Being armed with information but having no clue how to use it is like going to the department store with a stylish purse but having no money in it. How to determine your skin tone is rather imperative – and simple. Find a spot on your body where your veins are visible. The wrists make a good reference point. If your veins are blue, it does not mean you have blue blood coursing through your body, it means you are a cool skin tone. If your veins appear green, you have yellow undertones, making you a warm skin tone.
From bold Bart Simpson prints and digital sophistication on fabrics to neon colour blocking and chunky snuggle knits – it’s a circus out there this autumn. While it’s exciting it can also be confusing with literally thousands of cuts, colours and combinations to choose from with style gurus soap boxing their ‘darling this is THE only look for the season’ preach.
Tailored suits and chic military lines, florals, fur trim and comfortable knits will allow you to look stylish but not too risqué this season. Three high end trends sure to meet sophistication head on and remain as timeless pieces in any woman’s wardrobe are:
Suits – tailoring and clean lines give a classy elongated silhouette; worn with either slim fit trousers or a wider leg. Combined with a clutch bag or single piece of jewellery such as a pair of Lace Trimmed Emerald studs or the Dream Trio Pendant - your suit sophistication will be an effortless ensemble.
Military - there comes a time when sophistication marries a head to toe look in a simple, less is more way. This season’s jacket ticks that box with its button detail, belt synched waists and a tailored cut that takes nothing away from feminine lines. In fact the opposite is true – with the strict structure of the garment the body is moulded and accentuated to offer a very sexy form. For the piece de resistance pair the Eternal Bouquet Ring or the delicate Showstopper by Tru-Diamonds™.
Florals – while autumn brings a nip in the air it doesn’t mean one has to cover up head to toe. Glamorous events will herald the Festive Season and a chance to wear edgy, classic and elegant pieces that pop with bright, fresh designs - worn with the Royal Cascade Bracelet, distinct Ruby Inspiration Earrings or simply elegant Eternity Bangle.
While the beauty, sentimentality and glow of Christmas spells all things excessive, this is the perfect opportunity to take the opposite approach when it comes to wearing jewellery. Less is more and to really stand out amidst all the baubles and jingle bells, is to offer up a very clean, stylish statement that showcases your jewellery to perfection.
Keep it chic – while one is sometimes tempted to load up with the sparklies one must always know when to stop. If for example you are wearing dramatic earrings like the Boldly Beautiful Earrings or the Sparkling Ruby set, then one should take a more understated approach and resist the urge to add an armful of bangles or perhaps an OTT watch.
Tone it down – when your clothes take the stage (and there’s nothing wrong with that to make for a jaw dropping entrance), particularly when you wear patterns or over-detailed items, make sure your choice of jewellery is very simple. If you are wearing a Pollack-effect jacket with loads of colour for example, a very simple ring (remember colour is cool) Sapphire Eternity, Simple Devotion or Bold & Beautiful would make more of a statement and offer a cleaner look.
On the party scene this season, jewellery hits the high note as all things bling, shimmery, spoiling and divinely decadent – so step out in the top seasonal spangles set to jingle your bells.
For your classic Christmas party this year, the indulgence of the season brings the joy of being able to play with a wide choice of jewellery such as the Super Nova Ring that compliments garments busting at the seams, like chunky knits and pushed patterns. Alternatively go for a signature piece like the Boldly Beautiful Tru-Emerald Earrings, they are elegant and perfectly fashionable, especially if you are going for the colour block trend which is hot right now.
Colour is one of the most important trends in jewellery this season, timed perfectly to give you a playful lift after a busy year. On the one hand classic, subtle and ever so elegant pastel hues are delicately worked into intricate pieces such as Opening Night Ring and Pink n White Delight Bracelet

It can be glammed up or dressed down, worn to the supermarket or to a red carpet event. It is captivating, enduring and amazingly versatile. It is a wardrobe fundamental and a seasonal staple. The Little Black Dress is timeless and is an old closet favourite that certainly holds its own.
With the right accessories, this Coco Chanel-made-famous wardrobe essential is suitable for absolutely any occasion. A simple cut paired with denim presents a stylishly informal look, ideal for daytime excursions. For that one step higher on the rung of the casual ladder, add a simple piece of shimmer, like a delicate gilded bracelet.
Any colour added to this shadowy shade makes a lovely accompaniment – the brightness of blue, the poise of pink and the radiance of red. Matching handbags and shoes is a classic way to bring out the most in the complementary colour. For a subtle addition, simply add an accessory with the vivid colour – a blue ring, a pink bracelet or a red pendant.

Another motive is the fact that dolling up and making a little extra effort gives you a sense of pride and boosts your self-esteem. Quite simply, if you look good – you feel good!
