Prom 2009: Jewelry Fit for a Queen

Prom Jewelry As you gear up for the biggest party of the year, you're definitely going to want to look your best. So what's hot this year in prom jewelry trends? And what are some great pieces that are affordable and stylish? Well, we're here to tell you all that and more…

If you really want to make an entrance at prom, then you've got to have the right jewelry to compliment your gown. Rhinestones are hot, hot, hot this year, with many options to choose from. A necklace is a great place to start putting together your look. Of course, this will depend on the neckline of your dress. If you have a strapless dress, then you'll have no problem pulling the necklace of your choice.

Pendant necklaces can be basic or can incorporate fun charms such as bowties or horse shoes (think Carrie Bradshaw on Sex in the City). If you're looking for something a little more fashion forward, wear an asymmetrical enamel number with an oversized flower to one side. CZs by the yard can do a great job at picking up the sparkle in your dress, whereas a layered necklace brings attention to your decoration and can be an elegant addition to a simple dress. If you're looking for a little color in your necklace, then try incorporating chunky brightly colored stones with a cascade of rhinestones.

Prom jewelry doesn't always have to sparkle. If you have a busy dress, for example, you may want to choose accessories that compliment, but don't compete with your ensemble. For an alternative look, you can wear chunky necklaces made of semi-precious stones such as turquoise or quartz. Or, try candy colored beads in bright colors such as raspberry or emerald green. Worn with confidence, you're sure to end up on the list of "Best Dressed".

Whatever you choose, your prom jewelry should be fun, fashionable and fit for a queen.
