Big and bold, or small, modest and demure. What are the latest jewelry trends, as she sees them? Gallery Atlantic catches up with Yuli Ziv, New York’s hottest fashion and fashion celebrity blogger, a week after New York’s Fashion Week ended.
Founder of the fashion news and networking site MyItThings, and co-founder of the Style Coalition, Ziv says bold and vintage will be “in” this year.
The first time we talked with her she was caught in the paparazzi blitz of Fashion Week. Justin Timberlake’s urban fashion was just about to hit the runway, with celebs, including his girlfriend, waiting for the debut. "It’s really crazy here right now,” said Ziv.

As a prominent fashion blogger what kind of jewelry do you think will be trendy this year?
Yuli Ziv: I think in the last few seasons we've seen lots of bold statement necklaces, and now the shift is towards earrings as the main jewelry piece. Anything from long pieces, or stones-encrusted styles like we've seen on the Vera Wang Fall 2009 runway, to the unique sword-like earrings shown by Zac Posen –– will rule this upcoming season.
Do you see any particular jewelry/watch/accessories trend among the celebrities and the glitterati on the streets of New York?
Yuli Ziv: Another emerging trend is vintage –– so anything vintage looking from 40s style brooches to cocktail rings, will play an important role in styling this year.
If you could have an interview with any jewelry designer in the world, who would it be?
Yuli Ziv: I would love to talk to the late Daniel Swarovski. There aren't many true inventors in the field, and he was definitely one of them. It's amazing that Swarovski brand is flourishing years after his death and continues to innovate.
Do you have a favorite piece you like to wear? What is it, why do you love it?
Yuli Ziv: I love simple modern looking jewelry, because it fits my personal style and most of my wardrobe. TeNo is one of my favorite brands, as they manage to turn any stones and metals into modern looking graphic shapes with a bit of futuristic appeal. I recently got this TeNo Steel Ring w/White Pearl as a gift and just don't take it off my finger.
