Pretty in Paisley
Jewelry Trends


With the sixties back again in fashion, from mod black and white to the Indian influence, it’s not surprising that paisley is again popular. The paisley motif is appearing in medallions and other pendants in particular. Although some paisley-inspired designs just incorporate the distinctive curved pear shape in an abstract way, many paisley pieces have the kind of detailing you might expect to see in the Kashmir shawls that inspired the original paisley craze in the 19th century. Rose cuts, granulation, and filigree add to the embroidered effect. All of these paisley designs will appeal to the self-purchasing woman of today as well as those that remember the sixties fondly. — Cheryl Kremkow
