  3. My favourite outfit to wear on special outings is a green velvet retro fitted dress with a little black velvet bolero. I always wear silver jewellery with it. I think the combination of both the silver and various green beads would look absolutely great with it as a set necklace earrings bracelet combo

  5. I always receive raves for pieces with pearls and crystals. Whether cascading crystal and pearl creations or more understated pieces with pearls and a hint of glittering crystal, this combination is very popular.

  14. I would have to say it has changed over the last 5 years from gold to silver. It seems that I know of so many young women in there 30's that prefer silver to gold. I think it's because silver costs less than gold and I think it goes with more colors than gold. I still like gold, but my new favorite is silver!
