Bejeweled Flowers

It's Spring, and flowers are sprouting everywhere, even in jewelry design. June's InStyle attributes the trend of bejeweled flowers to the blossom-filled spring runways of Karl Lagerfeld, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta and Emanuel Ungaro.

Featured jewelry includes a diamond, lapis and agate ring by Aaron Basha, an aquamarine and diamond necklace by Craig Drake, a topaz and diamond bracelet by Asprey & Garrard and topaz and iolite earrings by Pasquale Bruni. Accessories editors Marion Fasel and Penny Proddow proclaim flower-inspired jewelry to be "versatile, complementing the season's girlish clothing or adding a touch of whimsy to more serious classics."
