Jewelry: Amazing Lace
This season, get holey rolling in jewelrys fabulous filigree trend.
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but nothing says feminine like a hint of delicate lace. Combine the two elements, and you’ve got one of this season’s most talked-about jewelry trends. Mirroring the lace-ridden ready-to-wear pieces seen on the runways of Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton and Valentino, intricate filigree jewelry laced with diamonds seems the focal point of many a fine accessories designer recently turning up as openwork brooches, bracelets and cuffs, and defining entire Fall/Winter collections. As bold as chunkier pieces thanks to great attention to detail, classic and beautiful filigree jewelry is perfect for anyone wanting to appear equal parts on-trend, timeless and ladylike. Hint: Pairing with last season’s leather and skull extras will cancel the effect.
