When choosing in-style clothes for your spring/summer 2013 wardrobe, do not forget to pay attention to the latest trends in jewelry. Necklaces, rings, bracelets and other pieces serve as the perfect complement to a fashionable wardrobe, so you will want to purchase some of these decorative accessories in order to complete your ensembles. The following jewelry items and themes are in demand for the current fashion season.
Whether petite or oversized, drop earrings are incredibly trendy in the spring and summer of 2013. Subtle drop earrings with clear stones or pearls work well as accessories for flowing dresses and skirts, while large drop earrings made with vibrant gems bring extra punch to brightly hued outfits.

High quality costume jewelry made from brass, bronze and nickel silver add touches of whimsy and character to your look this season. Consider purchasing chain necklaces with colored pendants and charms or metal hair clips crusted with pretty costume gemstones.
Emerald is Pantone`s Color of the Year for 2013 and jewelry makers are embracing the hottest hue in fashion by featuring beautiful dark green stones in their collections. Buy a simple emerald ring, emerald-and-diamond earrings or other emerald pieces to stay on trend.
Animal Themed Bracelets
Bangle bracelets with animal prints are an eye-catching way to embrace the jewelry trends of spring/summer 2013. Look for bracelets that are painted with tiger stripes or molded into the shape of a snake. Colored gemstones are a popular design choice for animal eyes and body features.

Necklaces that rest just under the collar provide a smart and sophisticated look. You can opt to pair vintage clothing with a gold-and-rhinestone Peter Pan collar necklace or team printed tops with a tribal themed, color blocked collar necklace.
If you enjoy wearing rings, necklaces and pins that make a statement, pick up some "word jewelry" for the spring and summer months. Gold pieces emblazoned with "LOVE," the name of your favorite destination or your own name are certain to be a big hit.
Thick metal arm cuffs adorned with jewels or molded into creative designs are a glamorous alternative to stacked bracelets. Purchase both gold and silver arm cuffs so that you can coordinate them with other pieces in your jewelry collection.

Many jewelry designs in the spring and summer of 2013 feature a combination of black and white stones. Pieces that contain diamonds or white topaz paired with onyx or black spinel have a timeless look that flatters all clothing colors.
The fashion world`s love of vintage style clothing extends to jewelry this season as well. Beautiful pearls in various colors and shapes are a standout among vintage pieces. Period style wedding rings and fine gems are also highly appealing and popular.
If you admire some high-end jewelry pieces but are on a tight budget, then consider searching for more affordable alternatives for the spring/summer 2013 season. Jewelry makers can save money and still be on trend when purchasing gems, beads, chains and equipment from online stores.
