Jewelry should never be reserved for special occasions only. With major fashion houses season after season, sending signature costume jewelry down the runways, the fashion arena is embracing a welcome shift from exorbitantly priced pieces to iconic designs that add characters to our day-to-day outfits.
With the holiday seasons approaching shortly, if you’re still scrambling for last-minute gifts for that special someone – or yourself, we’ve put together some scene-stealing costume jewelry pieces, from sleek, simple lines, to chucky, audacious pieces, and everything in between, the dazzling piece would add to the rotation to accessorize any outfit.
Bottega Veneta – A sleek, romantic look
Accessories are truly like the icing on the cake. Personalize any outfit with jewelry designs that are both understated and minimalist to own the look.
The Star Necklace by Bottega Veneta is at the finest end of simplicity. Comes in 18-karat gold-plated and sterling silver iterations to suit both cool and warm skin tones, the slim gourmette chain is interspersed with star-shaped charms. The elongated necklace with no clasp is designed to be slipped on and off effortlessly.
On a weekday, it spruces up the languid elegance of the entire look with a turtle-neck sweater and a pair of pants. Yet it adapts to any romantic nights out just as perfectly, when paired with a classic little black dress and a pair of killer stilettos too.
On days that your heart just screams for a bit of drama, amp it up with the Star Ring from the collection. The scintillating design is the result of the concentric star motif decorated with crystal pavé-set and round-cut cubic zirconia. The two-tone design also takes the fun factor up a notch.
Celine – A timeless elegant look
Embracing that savoir-faire from the 60s, Celine has curated a range of fashion jewelry that gives a nod to the treasured trend of the era. The Baroque Maillon Triomphe Earrings feature irregular, oversized cultured pearls. Above them are the iconic house motif of Celine Triomphe in gold brass, the same design is carried through the collection’s Pearls Multi-chain Maillon Triomphe Necklace.
The choker-style trend was seen on major fashion runways this season and this adjustable one by Celine adds a modernist bend to the unabated silhouette, while staying true to the fashion house’s DNA.
How could we not mention the retro hair clip trend that’s sweeping across the fashion world? In tune with the vintage chic, Celine’s cursive writing in gold is set against the tortoise shell hair clip to complete that old-time glam while staying true to the fashion house’s legacy.
CHANEL – A bold, extravagant look
Chanel has already declared: no need to hold back. Unapologetic and completely over-the-top, the latest costume jewelry line is yet another shoutout to the vintage look. The creator of the French maison herself, Gabrielle Chanel, was known to incorporate costume jewelry into her haute couture wardrobe.
This season, the fashion house is taking the penchant for the vintage vibe to new heights. An array of cuffs and bracelets feature a mix of metals and colored resin to echo the amalgamation of casual and glammed up codes. Also here to stay, are such signature elements of Chanel’s designs as the double C logo, camellia, ribbons, pearls, and leather woven chain, to inspire wearers to go bold and express their individuality.
FENDI – A minimalist look
The completely opposite end of the spectrum stands Fendi, where clean lines and sleek silhouettes are at the front and center of the collection.
The double necklace with the Italian fashion house’s signature FF Baguette motif makes achieving that jewelry stacking trend a whole lot easier. The set comes with two gold-tone necklaces of different lengths, so they can be worn together or as two separate pieces. The embossed diamond effect would pop brilliantly against your winter jacket.
The drop earrings with Fendi lettering, is yet another design that streamlines that flowing designs of the range. The way they sway elegantly with every movement also throws in a sense of fluidity and flirtatiousness to the entire look.
With Christmas being just around the corner, these stunning costume jewelry pieces will make any sophisticated fashionistas over-the-moon, as they compete with the twinkling festive lights.
