Summer 2012 Jewelry Trend – Charming Celebrity Hand Chains

First it was the headpieces, then it was enamel bracelets, and now it’s the hand chains. We can’t believe how many Indian accessories are trending for Summer 2012! Here’s how to emulate the hand chain look we’ve been spotting on some fabulous celebrities lately.

When Kelly Clarkson released her 2011 album Stronger, the world got yet another glimpse of why this singer is one of the American Idol winners who’s still around. Sure, the record is a classic — but the icing on the cake is definitely the hand chain Kelly is rocking on the album cover. We love the bracelet-ring hybrid’s rich gold color and funky charm.

Alicia Keys always wows us with her Indian accessories (do you remember that gorgeous tikka she wore to Paris Fashion Week?), and her hand harness at the Billboard Music Awards was no exception. Alicia’s intricate gold hand chain added some much-needed visual interest to her simple black outfit.

We recently spotted Kelly Rowland wearing an Indian-inspired chunky cuff on one hand and an equally Eastern-influenced handc hain on the other. Studded with tiny gold beads, Kelly’s refined hand chain balanced out her heavy cuff and bold gold necklace. (And while we’re on the topic, did you spot Kelly looking fabulous in Luxemi bracelets and earrings in Ebony Magazine? Yet another reason to love this “it” girl!)

Luxemi’s new summer accessory collection features two hand chains that will elevate any look to a more eclectic level. For a hand harness with a prominent motif like Kelly Clarkson’s, try this Gold Flower Charm Hand Harness with a smooth gold chain and a vintage-inspired floral charm.

And to take a feminine spin on the hand chain, Luxemi loves this Gold and Pearl Hand Harness. It’s a soft look that mixes well with Summer 2012 trends like florals and sorbet/pastels.

We’ve always loved Nicole Richie’s bohemian style, but the fashion icon’s headpiece looks have made us fall in love with her all over again. In the last few episodes of Fashion Star, Nicole has made the headpiece one of her jewelry staples — the ultimate sign that this classic Indian accessory is trending in Spring 2012! In the picture above, you’ll see Luxemi’s take on Nicole’s golden headpiece, the Circular Gold Bridal Headpiece.

Songstress Alicia Keys is never one to shy away from ethnic fashion trends. She was recently spotted wearing a chic silver headpiece at the high-profile Chanel Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter 2012 show in Paris earlier this month. The gorgeous accessory added some quick ethnic flair to her structured blazer. And did we mention it bears a striking resemblance to Luxemi’s Victorian Crystal and Black Stone Tikka?

Another of our favorite celebs, Louise Roe, wore a funky beaded headpiece to an A-List party over the weekend. We love how Louise paired her headpiece with a leather jacket and a tribal print blouse, a striking combination of old meets new. Louise’s headpiece is pictured next to the Black Stone, Ruby Quartz and Crystal Headpiece from Luxemi.

And this trend has International appeal. One of Luxemi’s favorite Indian fashion “It” girls, Sonam Kapoor, wore a stunning Kundan tikka in a recent fashion editorial spread that absolutely made us melt. We love that headpieces can be worn with super ornate traditional Indian sarees and salwars and then can be used to boost a more casual outfit for a girls’ night out.

Luxemi loves how the Indian headpiece is being worn with everything from traditional sarees to leather jackets and structured blazers to swimsuits! Want to snag the Spring 2012 headpiece look? Luxemi has headpieces that are chic for any occasion!
