Bali Harmony Ball Charms for Pandora Bracelets and Necklaces

The Balinese artistic designs are inspired by the wonders of nature, their love of art, and the abundant and historic beauty of Bali. Jewelry lovers and collectors will marvel in these precious adornments meant to bring out the goddess in each of us. All our Bali Jewelry at Secret Garden Gems  is made by hand, so we can create unique pieces that no one else could imagine.

A harmony ball is a charming figurine necklace that resembles something in the world. Each necklace is highly detailed and finely colored. They contain a bell which vibrates gently when you move. This is said to create a feeling of calm or "harmony" in whoever wears it. The traditional harmony ball originates from Bali. It is a symbol of calm and relaxation, and has been used by pregnant women there for centuries. The traditional harmony ball is a small silver heart-shaped ball that hangs from a black leather cord. It is about a quarter inch in circumference and height. The ball is finely detailed and beautiful. The small bell inside rings against the silver and creates a slight yet beautiful sound. Like wind chimes, the sound is subtle but noticeable and is sure to make even the most nervous person relax.

Top Jewelry Trends for 2012




Although necklaces are today’s key piece for jewelry, I would say that brooches can still be used still especially that trends in the 60s and 70s are back in the game. There are also interesting stand out pieces such as feathered headpieces and earrings- these truly bring the bohemian in any girl. Just be cautious that using these can be tricky, so perhaps search for looks that would suit your taste and body type before trying on items like these.

This brooch is composed of antiqued silver-tone Rhodium 
Plate metalwork that has the appearance of marcasite stones. The brooch is set with one simulated pearl and a crystal rhinestones in a round shape. The brooch measures 2 inches in diameter.  $18.95

Fake and Genuine Pearls

Pearls yell pure classicism. For centuries they have been hugely desired for their natural class and exclusive appeal. Used in the Victorian Era, pearls have evolved from simple one-strand to numerous layers and layers of beautifully hand crafted balls. Even Cartier has revived their classic styling in a lot more eye catching pearl with diamonds as added details. Pearls can be worn with edgy metals and other ornaments to have that feel of “warrior princess” but still exuding glamor.

Huge Hoops and Chandelier Earrings

A pair of hoop earrings is very flexible and this trend is nonetheless quite robust. The bigger… longer… and glitzier, the better. Hoop earrings that go 2-4” down give that fashionable trick and would surely bring you to that extra mile if they’re with rhinestones or diamonds or maybe embellished with other designs. Jewelry designers Patricia Locke and Ramona Singer are creating new and fascinating hoop earring designs. Now for a more elegant look, chandelier earrings are ideal. Bulgari, and other people are providing their spin on this traditional earring design and style. In 2010, earrings with extreme coloration palettes like scorching pinks, reds, greens and yellows produce a striking contrast that will give any vogue search a touch of glamor.

Jewelry + Bridal Accessory Trends 2011






www,secretgardengems.net
As accessories goes, a trendy piece of jewelry can immediately make any drab and boring outfit into an eye catching and chic one. Fashion jewelry trends 2011 forecasts that jewelry will be bigger and bolder. In general, the hottest new trends in jewelry are big and bold. The most popular colors will be earth colors, such as grays, blacks and browns. These will be pieces that remind us of nature and go well with any outfit. Popular colors for the fall and winter months are silver, black, copper, brown, and all shades of jewel tones. Turquoise blue, eggplant purple, deep fuchsia, emerald green are all shades you start seeing in clothing and jewelry as the summer cloths come off the store shelves and fall fashions make their appearance.









VINTAGE JEWELRY
 Because classic rhinestone brooches were so popular in the 1960’s, you can often find them at vintage stores (but snatch them up quick because of their recent rise in popularity). The modern versions are usually a combination of colored pearls, cut gems and rhinestones.
Ribbons: Though not so popular in the 1960’s, ribbons are being used with pearls, rhinestones and cut gems to gather multi-strand necklaces, serve in place of a necklace clasp and accent earrings and brooches.



 2011 predicts that bangles and cuffs will be very popular. But just don’t wear a single bangle or cuff. You need to stack them up for a chic and casual look. The best thing about wearing stacked bangles is that you can pair them with anything from sundresses to skinny jeans. This look was seen on many celebrities from Drew Barrymore to Sarah Jessica Parker. Create your own unique look by stacking different colored bangles in a mix of metals. Chunkier cuffs are also very popular this season and you can choose cuffs that comes in semi precious stones, leather and even plastic. Handcrafted cuffs with unusual texture in dull gold and rose finish can instantly make you look sophisticated and chic. The thing to remember while trying out this trend is to wear at least 12-15 bangles. They should also be of different colors and designs to give it a more eclectic look.

BRIDAL TRENDS
Since earrings reside in the prime real estate surrounding your face, they can really influence your overall look. The trendy bridal earrings for 2011 exude vintage elegance in an array of pearls, crystals and jewels. Elaborate stud earrings are in fashion and complement a variety of wedding gown styles. Tiered dangling earrings in jewel-tones are also popular and look great with simple gowns with high necklines and up-do hairstyles. Bracelets are one of those finicky accessories that fade in and out of fashion but don’t worry, this year they are definitely in. 2011 bridal bracelets are all about multiple strands. Designs with twisted strands of crystals and pearls are popular accented by touches of rich jewel-tones.

Shamballa Bead Bracelets Inspired By Tradition Secret Garden Gems

Secret Garden Gems is now carrying Shamballa Bracelets.  Shamballa styled jewelry has moved westward from its origins of formal use in prayer to regular use as a trendy fashion accessory for both men and women. Gracing the cover of Rolling Stone in February 2011, Shamballa was seen as a fabulous kingdom whose reality is visionary or spiritual as much as physical or geographic. It was in this form that the Shambhala myth reached the West, where it influenced non-Buddhist as well as Buddhist spiritual seekers — and, to some extent, popular culture in general.

Fashion Jewelry Trends Spring-Summer 2011

Let's look at the top fashion jewelry trends for Spring 2011 and break it down. The subtle differences in color are important to capture for your designs to look and feel updated. Color palettes that will be strong for spring are Black/white, blue/green, brown/coral, white on white. However, by using indigo blue and Kelly green, adding bright orange to coral, and mixing white with burnished metals, and black with artisan textures, you will find these basic color palettes to look brand new. Tip: Best selling color fashion jewelry is usually a rich mix of tones, finishes, and textures. Vary your hues, and mix transparent, opaque, metallic, and matte beads into your Designs.

Don't underestimate the beauty of brown this season. I believe the strongest way to include a brown story into spring 2011 jewelry is to maximize the 'animal' patterns trend. Use faux tortoise shell, printed animal patterns under clear or transparent colored epoxy, animal printed ribbons, or metal pierced with crocodile and zebra open work. Tip: When working with animal print patterns use soft geometric shapes to display them.Simple discs and orbital earrings are always very strong selling silhouettes to include in your selection.


According to a nationwide survey conducted by International Communication Research, and reported in National Jeweler magazine, jewelry is one of the most popular gifts exchanged in the U.S. It was chosen by 26% of the respondents as the gift that would be the most likely to make them feel special — and make them smile. And why not? A gift of jewelry is a lasting expression of how you feel about your special someone — or how he or she feels about you. 

This is why  jewelry,while valuable itself, enjoys an added sentimental value once it is presented as a gift.  

Question on whether jewelry is important or not has never even arisen since every woman understands the essence of this accessory.
Classic pieces that will always be in vogue can become boring if one wears those again and again.
So, a little diversity will make you feel more exciting about your look and people around you will notice you much more often
All-metal jewelry. This jewelry trend is rather new if we forget about traditional items made of precious metals. The metal jewelry
 I’m talking about now is different. It’s mostly lightweight though large in size, often yellow but sometimes white. Some pieces come structured, making beautiful compositions.
Others are angular and can be of an irregular form.
Layered necklaces are as hot as ever.
They have become more elaborate but compact at the same time.
To wear such jewelry you’ll have to choose your clothes instead of choosing jewelry for the outfit.

As the price of gold continues to skyrocket. This will continue to have an impact on jewelery  trends. Brass, silver, wood and beads are going to take over the field while gold remains unaffordable for the masses. Beaded jewelery and unique custom sterling silver made pieces will help people express their individual style while not taxing already strained financial resources. Handcrafted unique jewelery will continue to be hugely popular. More popular than ever, in 2011, because of the desire to express oneself through creativity rather than extravagance. Dangling earrings, with glass beads or a central focus piece will grow in popularity. 2011 will be all about focus and meaning, and the dangling earring provides a perfect counterpoint


The winning trends

¨ Big and bold
¨ Dramatic, unique, unusual necklaces
¨ Huge cuff bracelets with big stones
¨ Natural stones, eclectic natural look
¨ Swarovski crystals
¨ Black
¨ Multi-strand necklaces
¨ Pearls
¨ Cocktail rings with huge stones
¨ Big hoop earrings
