Animal Jewelry

Cartier Panther bracelet

There seems to be a trend of animal jewelry out there. Some of it is good and some is not so good. It is amazing but pieces featuring animals have actually been around for a long time. Case in point, the Cartier Panther Brooch created for Wallis Simpson in the 1940s. Women and men have been wearing animal jewelry for quite some time, so like any trend or style it will come and go, have its day then fade away. Currently it is making a comeback.

 A diamond snake necklace

Some of the hot trends in jewelry and accessories feature snakes. There are snake rings, bracelets, necklaces and they adorn the clasps of evening bags. Stars have worn them at red carpet events and they’ve been seen on the fashion runways. Popular animal jewelry not only features snakes, but cats, dolphins and even insects. I have a small stackable ring with a silver dragonfly. It’s actually quite demur.

 Animal prints in jewelry

Now animals are not only featured as creations in jewelry, the animal print is also quite popular. Bracelets made of faux animal fur and statement necklaces with animals prints are on trend this season. We’ve been seeing animal prints in clothing for quite a while now so it’s only natural to see it showing up in our jewelry. Zebra strips in enamel on a ring, leopard prints on a bracelet, the beautiful greens and blues of peacock feathers reproduced on a brooch.

Love the reds and the elephant head bracelet
While animals and their prints are nothing new in fashion, they are extremely on trend right now. If you don’t have some, get some. You can start off small with an animal print bracelet mixed in with other metal bracelets for an arm party. Stack some rings on your finger and slip in an animal print. It doesn’t have to be bold, it can be subtle, but if you wear it, you will certainly be on trend this season.
Throw a few pieces in with your outfit


  1. The leopard print is my favorite! I wear black everyday and that leopard print goes great with black!

  2. It's attractive. It glows like an Animal attracted to the firelight. I just love it... It makes me feel dangerous and exciting without a care in the night.
