Twisted Silver offers the perfect summer staple; the Crush necklace

Dainty jewelry was spotted all over the fall 2013 runways in London, New York, Paris and Milan. This trend towards smaller baubles has resonated with jewelry fans everywhere and offers the perfect option for pairing jewelry with summer 2013’s loud prints and bold color trends. After all, who wants to overwhelm a fabulous floral dress with a gigantic necklace?! Not me! And not you!

The new “Crush” necklace from Twisted Silver is the perfect answer to the current trend towards smaller jewelry. This beautiful silver bead necklace offers an adjustable length and brass details which make it work perfectly with both yellow and white metals. The necklace also offers a small brass pendent with a glass bead which offers an artistic and edgy look to the otherwise basic piece. Love that!

The “Crush” necklace works perfectly with the current blouse trend as it easily peeks through a blouse which has one-two buttons undone. The necklace also works well with V-necks and summer dress necklines. When fall approaches, Twisted Silver’s “Crush” necklace will work perfectly over turtle necks and with sweaters. This can easily be a signature and staple piece in anyone’s wardrobe. Love it!

The “Twisted” tag on the “Crush” necklace can easily be worn in the front or back, adding versatility to the look of the necklace. The “Crush” necklace can also be wrapped around the wrist and stacked with other bracelets for a casual look. Three pieces in one! Fabulous!

The “Crush” necklace by Twisted Silver is priced at $40 and can be found online at Twisted-Silver.com. Use coupon code INSIDERS for a 15% discount. Happy shopping, and stay fabulous
