Spring for Floral Flair!

Jewelry can be a make-or-break addition to any outfit, and it can give that subtle boost of confidence to really make a person shine. Or, if you’re like me and just like jewelry for jewelry’s sake, it can add a certain sense of beauty to your everyday aesthetic. I’ve scanned the web for pieces of jewelry that pop up in designers’ collections that have some kind of floral flair, and I was shocked at how much I found! After painstakingly narrowing down my results, here are my favorites:

Alex Monroe

When stumbling upon British designer Alex Monroe’s website I was instantly wow-ed. His whimsical approach to designing fairy-tale like collections of jewelry has garnered attention from jewelry lovers around the world. Mixed with other pieces or worn alone, this dainty gold posy piece is absolutely charming.

Alexis Bittar

Going from selling his first line of jewelry on street corners in SOHO in the late ‘80s, to now being an internationally acclaimed designer featured in Harper’s Bazaar and Elle, Alexis Bittar has come a long way. Alexis Bittar’s Lucite jewelry always adds a splash of color and personality to any look.

Avishag

As a jewelry designer in Negev, Israel, Avishag creates modern, angular pieces that are still feminine with touches of floral components. Sold through her Etsy store, Shoogi Spark, these moonstone briolette earrings are just delectable.

J.Crew

Who doesn’t love the simplicity of J.Crew? Its collections exude effortless classiness that seems to never go out of style. I’d love to have this dogwood bracelet, good for dressing up any outfit, clinging around on my wrist.

Judith Ripka

I love jewelry with mixed silver and gold tones, and Judith Ripka masters the look in many of her stunning collections. These drop earrings show how beautiful the effect of mixed tones can have.

LAGOS

I’m a big fan of LAGOS jewelry, based out of Philadelphia, and these cool blue studs echo the timeless, classic look for which designer Steven Lagos’s fine jewelry line is best known.

Located in a suburb outside of Detroit, Patrick Irla makes every piece of jewelry by hand and has a knack for making for making his floral jewelry look like the real thing. His adorable studs can be an everyday staple for those who prefer to keep it simple, and same goes for this romantic silver necklace with small clusters of tiny hydrangea blossoms.
