Trend File: Summer of Love Silver

I typically go for white-metal looks that are linear and geometric. But this season I’m all in for classically bohemian silver looks.

And silver jewelry designers are indulging in the look big-time, offering up sterling baubles that pull inspiration from Asian, Arabic, and Native American silver jewelry traditions.

Brands are of course incorporating turquoise into their free-spirited designs, but also moonstone, labradorite, opal, and other of-the-moment gems.

What’s brought us to this gloriously hippie-dippy moment in jewelry? Perhaps, at least in part, it’s a response to all the national political angst. Who couldn’t use a few baubles that hearken back to the Summer of Love right now?
