The New Leaf


Nature inspired designs, from flowers to butterflies, have been popular for several years now. This season there is a beautiful crop of new leaf designs. Less showy than flowers, leaves combine a graceful tapered silhouette with an arced shape and detailed texture, all of which are quoted in these beautiful designs. Leaves sprawl across a hand, delicately hold a gem or pearl, overlap like scales, or change colors in tones of diamonds and gems. This season skeletons and silhouettes of leaves are particularly popular, offering the outlines of nature traced in gold.
