(Hope its not too late to post about the latest trends:)

Fashion jewelry trends 2011 forecasts that jewelry will be bigger and bolder. If you really think about it, the right jewelry is like a piece of expensive art. It has the ability to make you look sleek and sophisticated. This season "less is not more", but "more is more". Statement jewelry is very trendy this year. In the case of oversized jewelry, this characteristic becomes even more powerful since it can be a complete fashion statement on its own. From complex, structural geometric patterns to more colorful and summery designs oversized jewelry will take a variety of different forms in the following season. One of the most important things that you should remember is to wear only one trend at a time. Do not wear stacked bangles with a statement necklace. Only one single piece of jewelry is sufficient to make you look fashionable.

Statement necklaces just got bigger and bolder this season with huge stones and funky designs. Wear a statement necklace that just sits on your collar bone as anything longer than that is so last season. A bib necklace with a mix of stones is just right for this season. Wearing unique mixed media multi layered chain necklace or layered chains is one of the biggest jewelry trends this season which is quite hard to miss.
