A Budding Romance: Floral Designs in Fashion & Jewelry – Part 2

The fashion press is replete with examples of delightful floral designs in jewelry shown outside the context of styled fashion shoots. Some floral jewelry designs are rendered in single-hued metal; more are created out of materials that allow for a colorful mix of blooms.

The March 2011 issue of Town & Country features an enameled metal pansy and porcelain rose necklace designed by Camille Miceli, creative director of accessories for Dior.

The March 6, 2011 issue of the Los Angeles Times Magazine terms these “best buds” “bloomin’ brilliant!”, including a Swarovski crystal-embellished flower brooch from Marni and a necklace with emerald and sapphire beads, rubellites, garnets and diamonds from Bulgari.

A flower ring from Le Vian in a recent ad features its trademarked Chocolate Diamonds.

An ad from Neiman Marcus in the May 2011 issue of Town & Country features a suite of matching floral designs from NM Exclusive Roberto Coin.

Of course, Chanel is promoting its signature camellia designs, including this ring pictured in the May 2011 issue of Town & Country.

Crystal flower earrings from Joan Rivers for QVC are pictured in the March 2011 issue of O, the Oprah Magazine.

In a salute to Sophia Loren in the May 2011 issue of Lucky, gold-plated enamel earrings from Juliet & Company are pictured.  

The March 2011 issue of Elle features a hand-painted porcelain brooch from Oscar de la Renta.

Pictured in the April 2011 issue of Lucky are these glittery brooches from Monet.

Going back to November 2010, Elle suggested that readers “start a budding romance” with flower-bedecked accessories, including this metal cuff with rhodolite and semiprecious stones from Rina Limor.

The April 4, 2011 issue of People pictures this bracelet of mixed blossoms from Spring Street Design. The same bracelet appears in the May 2011 issue of Woman’s Day.

A chunky floral necklace from Sequin is featured in the April 2011 issue of Real Simple. 

Also from the April issue of Real Simple is this photo featuring a variety of floral design rings from Kate Spade, Stephen Dweck, Loft, Fantasy Jewelry Box, and Sequin. Flowers are blooming this season. How does your garden grow?
