...Image makers know that there’s no faster way to make a fashion statement than get yourself noticed. Since in your case it’s not going to be a radical hair color, why not indulge in all the fashion jewellery advantages? It is an efficient way to make you look a celebrity whenever and wherever you appear.

This year, fashion jewellery “Oscars” go to yellow gold and blue topaz. These are the hits of the spring and summer 2010.

So, the top metal is yellow gold. Either it’s a necklace, or earrings, or a ring, yellow gold is immaculate in reflecting the sun. Besides, it doesn’t lose color intensity even if being exposed to direct sun rays for a long time.
The supremacy of the yellow gold does not mean exclude white gold. Fashion trends do not reject them as well, especially for day wear.

There is another trend this season - beads. During the past few years designers have created some stunning collections which have caught the buyers’ love at once and become a worthy rival to precious metals and stones. This year, as well as the last year, beaded jewellery is in its highest peak and the sunny summer days are an excellent opportunity to reveal your individuality, creativity and versatility with the bijouterie wide possibilities.

Since most of our summer wardrobe consists of light and airy stuff, jewellery is destined to be accentuated during the hot days. Thin necklaces, rather than big thick chokers and loose, thin bracelets that don’t cling to your arms are more comfortable.

If you find that your fingers swell up in the summer but you have a favorite ring, or you are married or engaged, I would recommend putting it on a chain and wearing the ring around your neck until the heat passes. Make your decisions right and the summer will be hot for you not only due to the weather.
Don’t be afraid of wearing noticeable chunky jewellery. It’s in this summer season. Preferably made of natural materials such as freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals.

If you decide to cut your hair for the summer, drop earrings, which highlight the neck is a key accessory as well. Or the ones like from the right, made of silver and sea shell.

So, make accents on jewellery, don’t hesitate to choose bright or chunky things if they are in harmony with the rest of your look, combine colors and stones, and be undaunted after the winter monotony.
