Jewelry Trends From The CFDA Awards 2016

By  |  0 Comments

The CFDA Awards New York 2016 had an excellent showcase in all realms of fashion.  This event always provides a great opportunity for celebrities to poise very creative approaches with outfits.  This years showcase had not only beautiful outfits but jewelry to complete the ensemble.  Pieces from designers such as Irene Neuwirth, Eva Fehren, Eddie Borgo, Borgioni, and Atelier Swarovski dazzled cameras.  A common theme with these designers is that they are all in a very inviting price range for fine craftsmanship with real materials.  Another common theme with these designers dealt with the idea that less is more, none of the pieces were large and noisy but only discretely beautiful. 

The trend from CFDA 2016 points towards an idea of smaller more conservative jewelry that hosts embellished paves and dainty metallurgy. 

This is a great idea because it balances out very nicely with a subtle yet beautifully designed outfit, distributing focus to the entirety, creating a marriage between loud and reserve.  As the Buddhists would say “the middle path is the best path”. 

It celebration of this balanced style here are a few more subtle yet beautifully handcrafted jewelry designers that were left out of the CFDA Awards 2016.
