Black Jewelry: A Fashion 'Do'

This season on the runway and on the street, we're seeing a lot of black jewelry that makes an impact and ups the style ante. Black is always a fashion favorite, and we're seeing that carry over to jewelry, in the form of statement pieces and beaded numbers. Smoky quartz, onyx and black crystal are intriguing and noticeable. There are several ways to wear these pieces, and here, we take a look at some of our favorites:
Black Jewelry
Rocker style – It's hard not to conjure up images of rock stars when you think of black jewelry. From their leather studded bracelets to chain link necklaces, these styles are becoming more mainstream. You can incorporate this look into your current wardrobe by pairing contrasting pieces, such as rough-and-tough chain link bracelets with floral prints and breezy fabrics. Or, give a little edge to a satin or silk dress.
Black JewelryTo the office – If you love the look of black stones, but you're not sure how it'll mesh with your work gear, then think small and subtle. A great pair of drop earrings with dark stones can add a nice touch to a classic suit or sweater. Black pearls or beads are also a nice way to modernize this fashion favorite. Select large stones for a contemporary and up-to-date statement.

Special occasion – Black stones and rhinestones are gorgeous and go great with black cocktail dresses or jewel-toned gowns and create a fun edgy vibe. Try a thick choker with a cameo or other black beaded centerpiece. Black and gold cocktail rings can be just the ticket for spicing up a basic cami and jeans. You don't need a lot of jewelry to pull off this look; keep it to one piece that’ll get the job done.

Black stoned jewelry is modern and elegant. And this season, there are some noteworthy pieces that are stylish, affordable and easy-to-wear. So the next time you're getting dolled up, think about adding some dramatic jewelry for a new twist on basic black.

Black is indeed a Royal Color! IT steals the show wherever present!

Now Fashion jewelry is one arena where the color black glistens like nowhere, offering a mind blowing contrast to the shimmering golds, whites and silver!

Pretty Pretty!
