"Well, looks like gold jewelry is making a comeback." This is the first thing my mom said to me after watching Sex and the City: The Movie. And she's right. While the clothes, shoes, and bags really stole the show, the shiniest accessories deserve a little love, too. This summer, don't let bright colors, bold patterns, and risqué hemlines steal the spotlight from all your fun jewelry. Scoop up a few pieces from seen-in-every-magazine designer Kenneth Jay Lane, and set the gold standard ahead of trend.
Bold bamboo hoops aren't going anywhere (remember when a SheFinds editor drooled over Gossip Girl Vanessa's pair way back in December?) This slightly more subdued pair of bamboo-inspired earrings ($44, were $63) adds a little exoticism to your wardrobe, even if you stay stateside this summer.
Surprisingly enough, the flower that took center stage in SATC wasn't Carrie's ginormous pin-on. It was the outrageous diamond-encrusted ring one of the gals snags for $55,000. Get a more budget-friendly flower in the form of this gold plated ring ($57, was $81) with just a hint of bling in the center. It's a wearable alternative to the face-eating flower pin, and it's chic and summery to boot.
If gold isn't your metal, pick a sleek, sophisticated and goes-with-everything black bangle ($121, was $173) that's covered in tiny crystals. Give your jeans and black top uniform an instant upgrade, or layer this sparkler in with a whole wristfull of colorful baubles.
