This season, all signs pointed toward funky and chunky jewelry, so we made sure to have plenty of statement necklaces, colorful cocktail rings and more on hand to stuff every stocking!
Covington, GA (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
Looking to stay on top of jewelry trends this season for yourself, or shop on top of jewelry trends for a fashionable loved one? Tis' the season to be long and layered, with more definitely meaning more. FantasyJewelryBox.com specializes in Celebrity Inspired Jewelry and Cubic Zirconia Jewelry, with thousands of pieces that blur the line between costume and real jewelry. And while the online jewelry store has always carried a wide variety of styles, this season's strong demand for chunky chains, glinting gold, and powerful pops of color finds them expanding their collection even further.
There is an element of risk when stocking your shelves with what you anticipate to be the next big thing; however, companies are not completely shooting in the dark when they choose what to carry. Shelley Reagin, Founder of FantasyJewelryBox.com, says, "The simplest, most important step in deciding what we'll buy is to watch the runway. Are designers sending women down with little to no jewelry, or are we blinded by the brilliance?" Reagin also notes that it’s equally important to watch what they are doing with the clothes themselves, saying, "Even if a designer doesn't accessorize her clothing at all with jewelry, we imagine what jewelry real women will be looking for to wear with those styles, and we make sure we’re offering the complements to the clothes before they even hit the mall. This season, all signs pointed toward funky and chunky jewelry, so we made sure to have plenty of statement necklaces, colorful cocktail rings and more on hand to stuff every stocking!"
The rise in the popularity of quality costume jewelry has not gone unnoticed by those outside the industry either. Melissa Magsaysay’s December 6, 2009 LATimes.com article, "Jewelry that's faux and fine", highlights jewelry that while not high-end is still decidedly designer with prices to match; however, the takeaway is that even some of the most glorious gems created are coming from companies that are manufacturing for 'the rest of us', which has been FantasyJewelryBox.com's mission from the day Reagan launched her store five years ago.
The NYTimes.com has also covered the costume madness with Victoria Gomelski's November 23, 2009 article, "Costume Jewelry's Golden Age ". Gomelski notes, "… the season’s most coveted pieces - tangled up necklaces of fabric, stones, chains, crystal and pearls (fake, of course) paired with stacks of bangles, all staged in Brobdingnagian proportions - eclipse any discussion of intrinsic value." Reagan adds, "It is important to ensure that even the grandest pieces, seemingly dripping with gems, are of the highest quality. From edgy to elegant pieces, I only accept the best so my customers can expect the best."
