10 - The Victorian Antique Inspired jewels
One of the great inspirations for 2013 is the Antique look, and after few runway shows I noticed that the Victorian Era inspired jewels has been one of the most popular trends among many high end designers.
The Victorian Era was a time were woman worn very ornate pieces of jewels which were quite large in size and detailed in its design. Techniques such as the filigree jewelry as well as engraved pieces were often very popular and pieces that used faceted precious and semi precious stones as the main focus of the design are also great examples of what a Victorian Inspired jewelry is all about.
The picture featured above feature a necklace by Oscar the la Renta, and since his Fall 2013 collection is so amazing I decided to feature his gorgeous Carved scrollwork earring to illustrate trend number 10. by clicking on the picture you will be taken directly to Oscar de la Renta Web site.

Geometric jewelry is definitely back in 2013 giving you the opportunity to re-use some of the pieces that you already have in your jewelry box. But if you need an update and would like to purchase few pieces you should focus on distinguished pieces that emphasizes on repetition.
