Classy glam jewelry designs are one of the greatest trends for 2012 and that is certainly one reason more why you must add them to your jewelry wishlist. The best choices are definitely the short or small chandelier earrings and the gorgeous pendant necklaces. They usually come adorned with precious and semi-precious stones such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds, rose quartz (pale pink colored stones are very popular) , the green Jades and of course, the stones that every girl dreams of- the sparkly and timeless diamonds . Diamonds, those little pieces of perfection, will certainly make you look classy and glamorous, and what’s even more important, they will never fade and go out of vogue.
