New Year's Eve jewelry trends

New Year's Eve is a time for unabashed celebration, and definitely the time to bring out your most stunning statement jewelry. Don't be shy, the blingier the better! Al Molina is here with the jewels you might see for the season, or might want to ask Santa for this holiday. We check out the hottest trends in everything that glitters and shimmers. 

Gold is the unofficial color of New Year's Eve. Yellow gold bracelets, necklaces, and oversized earrings pack a stylish punch that reflects the exuberance and excitement of the night.

Dramatic earrings: 
All that glitters are not gold; consider diamonds, too! A glamorous pair of chandelier drop earrings lights up the face, perfect for photo opportunities throughout the night. Drop earrings range in size, from delicate, relatively understated styles, through to oversized, opulent pieces that characterize an ensemble.

Colorful Cocktail Rings:
The perfect accompaniment for your champagne toast, a colorful gemstone cocktail ring adds a dose of vibrant playfulness to any look. Whether to complement the colors in your dress, or to bring a dash of vivid luxury to a black and white outfit, cocktail rings are always a dazzling choice. Rich red rubies and green emeralds express vintage opulence, while a rainbow of garnet, tourmaline and other semi-precious stones can have a thoroughly modern appeal.
