Designers are coming out with their Spring 2011 collections, and I’ve been noticing certain trends in this season’s wedding gowns. One of my favorites is their use of tulle overlays. Placing a soft layer of tulle over a different fabric creates a softer look and tones down the luster of high-gloss satin and silk.
Set to debut in a few months, the first crop of 2011 gowns are embellished with many dimensional details, lots of hand-stitched crystals, and large floral appliques.
The popular fashion designer Oscar de la Renta presented Spring 2011 Bridal Collection at designer’s NYC showroom.The new bridal line was absolutely amazing: various of palettes, many ruffles and of cause classic body conscience silhouette.
Since most of the 2011 wedding dress trends are romantic, romantic and undoubtedly romantic thus fit for dreamy affair. In fact you should feel yourself as the fortune bride who has a multitude of choices when it comes to making the selection of romantic wedding dress.

Pearls are always in fashion. However, the current trend is very different from the elegant single strand pearl necklace. This year your pearl necklace should be multi layered, the more the number of strands and longer the length, the more trendy will be your necklace.

...Image makers know that there’s no faster way to make a fashion statement than get yourself noticed. Since in your case it’s not going to be a radical hair color, why not indulge in all the fashion jewellery advantages? It is an efficient way to make you look a celebrity whenever and wherever you appear.
This year, fashion jewellery “Oscars” go to yellow gold and blue topaz. These are the hits of the spring and summer 2010.
So, the top metal is yellow gold. Either it’s a necklace, or earrings, or a ring, yellow gold is immaculate in reflecting the sun. Besides, it doesn’t lose color intensity even if being exposed to direct sun rays for a long time.
The supremacy of the yellow gold does not mean exclude white gold. Fashion trends do not reject them as well, especially for day wear.
There is another trend this season - beads. During the past few years designers have created some stunning collections which have caught the buyers’ love at once and become a worthy rival to precious metals and stones. This year, as well as the last year, beaded jewellery is in its highest peak and the sunny summer days are an excellent opportunity to reveal your individuality, creativity and versatility with the bijouterie wide possibilities.
Since most of our summer wardrobe consists of light and airy stuff, jewellery is destined to be accentuated during the hot days. Thin necklaces, rather than big thick chokers and loose, thin bracelets that don’t cling to your arms are more comfortable.
If you find that your fingers swell up in the summer but you have a favorite ring, or you are married or engaged, I would recommend putting it on a chain and wearing the ring around your neck until the heat passes. Make your decisions right and the summer will be hot for you not only due to the weather.
Don’t be afraid of wearing noticeable chunky jewellery. It’s in this summer season. Preferably made of natural materials such as freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals.
If you decide to cut your hair for the summer, drop earrings, which highlight the neck is a key accessory as well. Or the ones like from the right, made of silver and sea shell.
So, make accents on jewellery, don’t hesitate to choose bright or chunky things if they are in harmony with the rest of your look, combine colors and stones, and be undaunted after the winter monotony.

You may find this strange but spring may be less coloured than the creations of Veronika Melnyk.
The designs are a burst of minerals, colored stones and Swarovski crystals. The jewellery is inspired by the cultures of the world and the collection seems to hold all the treasures of the earth.
The variety of the materials is amazing: sterling silver, citrine, amethyst, quartz, agate, mother-of-pearl, freshwater pearls, coral and many more that even haven’t crossed our mind.

During a meeting yesterday afternoon, someone asked me if I did any jewellery designs with Swarovski crystals mixing with freshwater pearls. The answer is: YES! So I decided to post a photo of the latest jewellery design using Swarovski crystals.
This necklace was custom made for a destination wedding to match a wedding dress.
The six strand necklace and pearl stud earrings is composed of off white freshwater pearls and aquamarine Swarovski crystals. A very sweet matching set.

The spring colours are going to make an impact very soon. Most exciting for me are the purple based pastels that are due to have a major impact with styles this spring.
Soft violet is exciting for the various gem combinations available to every kind of jewellery artist.
Turquoise as a color opens up working with Turquoise as a gemstone this Spring. Aquamarine is a strong choice for this match as well if that's part of your gem line.
Yellow, of course, is the essence of Spring and Citrine and Amber will be leading the pack for up front designs with that sunny day appeal.
