Best Magazine Covers of 2011

The best magazine covers of 2011, happen to be the ones that have the celebrity girl on the cover, wearing some sort of exquisite jewelry. What is it about jewelry that has made it such a big impact in the year of 2011? Jewelry, as you can see from these covers, accentuates the outfits, adds the extra missing piece and often just brings the outfit altogether, so that the model or jewelry wearer, looks complete. Jewelry can often add that “extra something” to turn an outfit from casual to trendy, boring to bold, and from plain to daring. From crazy necklaces, to that one simple bracelet, to those cocktail rings or those simple dangly earrings, jewelry has come alive this year of 2011. Jewelry will only continue to expand as a fashion-essential in the year of 2012. Check out the top 10 pics of magazine covers, all showcasing jewelry in the three ways that were mentioned: to accentuate, to bring together and to add the final touch.

What’s better? Fine or Fashion?

What is the difference between fine jewelry and fashion jewelry? Nowadays, fashion jewelry seems to be more popular than fine jewelry because of it’s affordability and the fact that this kind of jewelry is the one you’re okay with wearing everyday, because it didn’t cost you a fortune to buy. Let’s take a look at the reasons why fine jewelry, regardless of the high popularity or the majority of people wearing fashion jewelry, will always be better.

Fine jewelry contains precious metal or precious stones. Fashion jewelry usually contains semi-precious stones or other types of material that are of low-quality. Therefore the number 1 reason why fine jewelry is better, is it’s HIGH QUALITY. Next, fine jewelry is an investment. Years to come, this jewelry can be sold, especially if this piece of fine jewelry has been worn by a celebrity or by royalty! Fashion jewelry, with it’s charming appeal, will wear-out and won’t even last long enough to be an investment. Fine jewelry also stands the test of time. Because the jewelry is real and of higher quality, you can be sure that this jewelry will last and stay durable throughout a lifetime. This is the type of jewelry that grandmothers pass down to their grandchildren. Fine jewelry is also more attractive, because of the fact that real stones or metals were used to make it. Fine jewelry also pays a lot more attention to the detailing in the jewelry piece. Fashion jewelry may look more complicated, but in actuality, the detailing is very simple in fashion jewelry. Lastly, although fine jewelry is more expensive (not budget-friendly like fashion jewelry), fine jewelry is the type of jewelry that doesn’t follow a trend. Fashion jewelry relies on the trends that are hot right now. Fine jewelry, regardless of time, will always have a classical elegance and sophistication that in and of itself, makes it priceless.
