SILVER JEWELRY

On the awards podiums of the world, silver always plays second fiddle to its glitzier cousin, gold. In the real world, though, silver jewelry is a style champion in its own right. With its brilliant white color, the metal is a strong foundation for inspired design whether it features gemstones or stands unadorned. Designs with streamlined architecture, gentle, pastel stones and oversized bib-shaped necklaces show silver in its best light. — TANYA DUKES
