Animal Instinct Jewelry - Fashion

Safari inspired jewelry has always been a fashionable way to subtly bring animal prints into your wardrobe, but animal jewelry this season offers so much more.

Wild animals such as cheetahs, leopards and jaguars are now being bejeweled with precious and faux gems to create eye-catching adornments in the form of bangle bracelets, stud earrings and statement cocktail rings. Insects such as crickets, ladybugs and butterflies are covered side-by-side in diamonds or cubic zirconia for glamorous sparkle. And birds are taking flight on precious metal cuffed bracelets and glittery brooches. The call of the wild is truly and beautifully translated into the latest fashion jewelry trends to hit the runways and the street scene this season.

One of the most popular trends right now is the butterfly. It's popping up everywhere from cutout cuff bracelets to fun-loving pendants that can add a touch of youth to any casual outfit. We're also seeing designers send out unique pieces that go out on a limb and incorporate animals such as armadillos and porcupines, for those daring enough to wear these creatures of the wild.

For summer jewelry styles, ocean animals of the deep such as starfish and tropical rainbow colored fish are ever-present in beautiful pendant necklaces and pins. They add an air of far off places and vacation get-a-ways to gauze fabrics and lightweight linen. Animal jewelry is so versatile; it can either be casual or dressy, art deco or geometric. Or, it can add an earthly feel or focal point to plain pieces such as khakis and denim.

If you're wondering how you wear these fabulous pieces, let the jewelry speak for itself. Let your animal themed necklace, earrings or bracelet take center stage and keep other accessories simple and understated. Let the call of the wild shine through, and you'll be sure to be a fashion 'Do'.
