Draped Filligree Necklace

Gold jewels ruled the runways in London during their recent fashion week.

2 important jewelry looks,: one from Issa London a long filigree linked necklace worn at the back, and a layered leaf cascading bib by Nicole Farhi.

Could this inspire new trends in the market here?

Let me know what you think.

Fall 2011 Fashion week in Paris is drawing to a close, and I am just now getting through reviewing all of the runway collections in search of the most interesting jewels. I knew Lanvin would not disappoint! I saw a series of bold pendants, brooches, and cuffs, all bejeweled and featuring darkened metals and dark colored stones. I love the corsage effect of a large floral design cuff at the wrist over a pair of gloves or as an accent at the waist. Very chic and feminine.

There were many other lovely looks in the collection. Take a look for yourself at http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/F2011RTW-LANVIN

I cannot tell you how beautiful this is! I LOVE IT! I was scoping out the slides from the latest Gucci Show for Fall 2011, and this beautiful Peacock Blue was featured throughout the show. There were very few jewelry features in the collection, but the use of color and accessories, such as fur wraps, snakeskin handbags, sunglasses, skinny belts and platform shoes made this collection by Frida Giannini completely irresistible! Check out the full collection at style.com.

Graceful and confident, Donna Karan’s autumn/winter collection is entitled Pearls of Wisdom and is all about embracing a woman’s femininity with conviction.

Donna Karan has been a fashion hero of mine since my freshmen year at F.I.T. in New York City when she came to speak to our class about her career and launching her business. I love her Fall 2011 Collection and I absolutely ADORE this layered multi-pearl Necklace! View the full collection at Style.com. I am now approaching the age where I can seriously pull off some of her beautiful clothes, now I just have to come up with the funds to afford them! I did purchase one of her collection jackets at Loehmann’s once in the early 90’s. The look was way too mature for me then.

I will be bringing you more highlights from the Runways of New York, London, Paris, Milan and LA! Stay tuned!
