Holiday jewelry trends

Nov 23, 2011

The holidays are finally here! For many of us, this is the best time of the year. We get to spend time with family and friends, our homes and streets are decorated with dazzling lights, and of course, we get to show off our favorite holiday accessories! Whether you're the kind who likes a lot of glitter to commemorate the season, or you prefer to keep it subtle, here are some tips to keep in mind when you crack open your holiday jewelry box.

If you're planning on heading home for the holidays for a big family event, you'll definitely want to look your best. This is the time to shine, so don't be afraid to wear some big, gaudy and sparkling bracelets and rings.

Speaking of rings, many newly engaged couples use the holidays as a time to make their joyous announcement to their loved ones. If this is your plan, then you should be sure to bring along your wedding bands or wedding ring. For extra fun, try putting on the ring before you make the announcement and see which family members are paying enough attention to ask you about it.
