“We are featuring truly spectacular jewelry this season,” says Darrell Ross, the President and CEO of Ross-Simons. “Our spring collections combine easy-to-wear designs with the very latest fashion trends. The good news: one or two new pieces can instantly update a wardrobe. “

The Season’s Most-Wanted List

This spring there’s something for everyone; options range from all-out glamour to casual chic.

At First Blush: Pale pinks and peaches are sweeping the runways in ethereal blush jewelry. In fact, pink pearl jewelry is one of the hottest news trends. Have fun with a huge baroque and pearl and diamond ring in “barely there” pink; it only looks expensive. Or try a peach cultured freshwater pearl necklace for a surprisingly contemporary look. Incorporate floral motifs into your wardrobe with morganite earrings in rose vermeil. The floral-like pattern of the stones gives new meaning to the concept of spring flowers.

Signature Gold: Gold jewelry possesses a timeless appeal that can be worn
now and for years to come. Wear it day or night; it’s always in good taste. Look for polished satin, shiny hammered and woven textured finishes. The gold and diamond ring goes one step above the norm when you intertwine a diamond band with one or two gold bands. It’s the definition of a true modern classic. Italian gold bracelets run the gamut from fine woven patterns to checkerboard-style links to delicate openwork cuffs. So when in doubt, play it safe: abide by the golden rule.

Classic Glamour: Polished, dressed-up fashions are back in vogue. Make a statement with lavish gems like diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires that recall the glory days gone by. An elegant indulgence: a diamond floral line bracelet in 14kt white gold. Sapphires and diamonds go together perfectly to create fabulous earrings. Try large oval designs or dangling diamonds drops. Huge emerald and ruby rings evoke images of glamorous Hollywood celebrities.

Long & Lean: Earrings and necklaces are definitely going to great lengths –long and lean and so incredibly beautiful. In terms of earrings, take a page from the red carpet: wear vertical, dangling earrings as the key focal point to a special occasion dress. Some of the most alluring tapered looks: dazzling diamond chain link earrings, multi-shape aquamarine dangle earrings and elegant cultured freshwater pearls in a linear silhouette. Y-style necklaces add instant drama; opt for a vibrantly colored stone such as garnet, onyx, carnelian or citrine. Earrings and necklaces with tassels tied low are the essence of sophistication.

Alternative Rocks: Geometry has never been so easy. This season, circles, rectangles and squares add up to some very fashionable pieces. Dangling earrings in free-form asymmetrical shapes provide a unique, one-of-a-kind look. Moonstone and diamond earrings adorned with pink tourmaline combine eye-popping color with pale opal translucence. Or consider an agate “rock” ring surrounded by round diamonds. In terms of bracelets, multi-gem bangles in sets of three are extremely versatile. Wear alone or stack together.

Color Blocks: Clothing this season is bright and bold; jewelry should also embrace this flattering fashion trend. Choose vivid gemstones in big rectangular blocks of color. A gemstone pendant necklace on a sterling silver chain is simple but impressive. Try one with a variety of gems: garnet, amethyst, citrine, aquamarine and peridot. Oversized rectangular rings make a powerful fashion statement; choose from blue topaz, green quartz, amethyst, pink morganite and champagne quartz.
