Fashion Forward: Puff Pieces


There’s an added dimension—literally—to some of the bolder link looks that are being introduced here and abroad. Larger scale and a new puffed, rounded silhouette pumps up the volume of the latest large-link precious metal jewelry designs, especially in gold. Styles are classical, but bigger. Despite the super-sizing, they are still lightweight. That jumbo look without heaviness is achieved through advanced jewelry-making techniques like electroforming. Not only do these techniques enable precious metal jewelry to be bolder and lighter in weight, they also provide size without a sizeable retail price.
