Just like last year when “The Great Gatsby” remake from Baz Luhrmann came out and there was a deluge of pearly and Art Deco inspired jewelry coming from every which way, including TIFFANY & CO, this year, the hype surrounding the potential Disney hit, “Maleficent”, spawned a collaboration between the entertainment behemoth and Crow’s Nest Fine Jewellery. The collection resulting from this meeting of the minds only reinforces the modern lean towards dark accessories with a sometimes sinister streak.
Awards season always brings out the red-carpet-worthy looks which we see are almost never without beautifully classic jeweled additions from masters of their craft; Fred Leighton, Harry Winston, and H.

Perhaps it’s the natural evolution of style or the morphing of Feminism into a state of pure presentation where you can wear whatever you want regardless of what is typically considered beautiful.

We at SINGER22 have our hand on the pulse of what’s trending so we’ve got some great jewelry finds that are unsurprisingly consistent with this fairly new tendency of wearing moody and alluring jewels meant to compliment modern taste. Explore our selection of wonderfully exotic pieces including: a dark metal hand chain from Lacey Ryan, a beaded necklace with a skull charm from Electric Picks, a black snakeskin embossed cuff with a faceted stone, and a fantastic arrowhead necklace, both from Heather Hawkins.
