Fashion Trends: Spring and Summer 2009

Wondering what to buy for the upcoming season? We're here to give you some quick tips and helpful advice on what's hot (and what’s not) for Spring and Summer 2009.

1) It's all about sterling silver – With the price of gold skyrocketing, many fashionistas are turning toward silver as an alternative. Any why shouldn't they? Silver has always been a popular choice and can easily be paired with other precious medals for a timeless and beautiful look.

2) Green jewelry – This eco trend seems to be popping up everywhere, and with environmentally friendly jewelry, the options are quickly growing. Natural wood grain jewelry, bamboo bangles and organic beads are dominating the market this year. Pieces are a little rougher around the edges, with Mother Nature getting the credit for the brilliant natural colors and shine of these precious gemstones.
