Many gals are looking for what's hot in  jewelry trends for 2013. Precious metals will always be pinnacle but there’s an upswing in plastic in pastel and fluorescents and much retro.

Geared towards playful, creative and bold, while much of the winter days tend to be dull, add the top designs to give it a summer warmth’s experience.

Some top trends to consider include:

  • Hoops

Hoop earrings are back just like the ones Cher wore in the 1970s.  Colorful and fun, match up large hoops with gemstones with what is worn or make an exception with gold coins like a gypsy with the hair pulled back with a scarf.

  • Rings

Hefty power-sized rings are hot with faux or real gemstones in bright colors of neons. Winter doesn´t mean neutral, so go all the way with purple, hot pink, orange and lime.

  • Rainbow beads

In a departure from the timeless elegance of  the past, sport  beaded necklaces and bracelets. Dangling beads have arrived  in a myriad of colors in the stores which perfectly complimented the gray days of winter.

  • Pearls

Go retro with the over-sized pearls a la Coco Chanel. From the past, pearls have stepped back in fashion town and the more worn the better. Seek out chokers and pearl cuffs.

In designer handbags, the best of of the best in this year's retro that will always be ever-so-new is an authentic Chanel Lambskin Tassel.

This pre-owned Chanel can be used as a scrumptious evening purse for after-five events and still make the grade as a pouch during the day and is a favorite of Ashlee Simpson.

The exterior of the Chanel handbag has that its recognizable quilted pattern in black lambskin leather with a Chanel CC logo embossed upon it.

Elegantly dangling off its top zip closure, is its namesake of a 20s Art Deco style fringed tassel pull adorned with gold square enhancement engraved with the Chanel’s CC logo.
