Must-Have Jewelry for 2011; LeVian Predicts Trends for 2011: Into the Wild

Le Vian jewelry predictions

What will 2011 bring by way of new fashion? When it comes to jewelry, the people to ask are the fine jewelers at LeVian. Here's what fashion experts had to say in a recent Harper's Bazaar year end feature: "LeVian is leading the animal-inspired design pack with wildlife inspired looks from its Into the Wild collection."

The Swiss-made timepieces featured are individually numbered limited editions of tigers, panthers and pandas, made into a mosaic of sparkling jewels inlaid into the faces of the watches. And the straps? They are made of genuine stingray! How's that for luxury?

Now most of us simply cannot afford one of the LeVian special timepieces with raised diamond dials. However, the trend is worth taking note of. Whatever can be done in high style can also be recreated in a number of more affordable, and yet luxurious, ways.

The secret to leading a fashionable life is to keep up with the trends. If you are able to do that, you can recreate that million dollar look at a small fraction of the price.

A more price version of the leopard head can be found in the Emerald Eye Onyx Pave Sterling Silver vintage ring from Bling Jewelry. The gorgeous green eyes are the drawing point here, and they are every bit as much a draw as a more expensive wild-life themed piece.

 This is a  designer inspired cocktail ring, covered from head to tail in pave set cubic zirconia. This sparkling ring depicts an exotic and sleek panther gripping its own tail. The  marquis cut dark green emerald eyes give the ring an exotic feel and look. Onyx cubic zirconia make for the look of a leopard's spots! Panther or leopard, this is one ring that is fit for royalty.
