Winter’s Jeweled Blooms Look to Spring—Part 1: Bold Choices in Black, White & Brights

Although winter hasn’t had its last hurrah, that hasn’t stopped fashion and jewelry designers from producing pieces that look forward to warmer days ahead. Flowers appear in abundance and in all manner of interpretations, from bold graphic designs to delicate renderings.

The boldest interpretations of floral motifs in jewelry come from trend-setting design houses. Fashion editorials pair these blooms with garments featuring graphic designs and generally large-scale design details.  

A current ad for Gucci accents vibrant Asian-inspired red print ensembles with necklaces of chunky red blooms. 

The January 2013 issue of Marie Claire features the chunky red Gucci floral necklace, which takes on an orange hue worn with a Gucci dress with exaggerated ruffled sleeves.

Sporty fashions adorned with flowers are the focus of this fashion spread from the December 2012 issue of Marie Claire. Pictured are a ribbon-tied red floral necklace from Lanvin, a charm-bedecked bracelet from Venessa Arizaga at Kirna Zabete, and a neon band wristwatch from Sony. 

A current ad for Oscar de la Renta promotes the design house’s chunky floral pieces consisting of necklaces, earrings, and rings in black or white.

The January 2013 issue of Vogue styles a mod striped shift from Dior with a matching set of flower bedecked necklace and earrings in red by Oscar de la Renta.

Prada’s Miu Miu line features a chunky floral necklace in white and earrings in yellow in this recent ad.

The Prada line itself takes a more delicate approach to blossoms and has abundant company in this approach, as I’ll discuss in an upcoming post.
