Copy the Jewelry Style of your Favorite Twilight Character

After the first Twilight movie phenomenon and with another one on the way, we just can't get enough of what our favorite characters are wearing both on and off screen. From their signature rings and bracelets to pieces inspired by the scene-stealing actors, Twilight style is taking the world by storm.

One of the most memorable pieces in the film is the turquoise watch bracelet worn by our favorite character, Bella. This piece is both delicately romantic and uniquely intriguing. To get the look, try a sterling silver cuff bracelet with large turquoise stone as the focal point. For a light look, wear with floral blouses to give off a bohemian chic vibe. Another Bella favorite is the ring with dome shaped stone, which is a gift from her mother in the movie. This fun accessory takes on a youthful twist, as the 'evil eye' ring.

Rosalie also conquers vampire jewelry style on screen with a great pair of eye catching sterling silver hoop earrings adorned with discs. They are feminine but not too over the top for her character. As the movie is tied to family heritage, you’ll also remember the Cullen family crest necklace, which is a jewelry staple. To try a modern take on this movie must-have, consider a charm bracelet that you can adorn with trinkets related to your favorite character or the movie in general.

Off screen, the Twilight cast has been plastered all over the press rocking a laid back vibe in their wardrobe and jewelry choices. For Kristen Stewart, this means chunky metal and leather bracelets and chain necklaces for casual wear. Her jewelry choices for the red carpet are minimal and simple necklaces, which allow her true beauty to shine through. It's obvious we're going to be seeing a lot more of Kristen and the rest of the Twilight crew and we can't wait to see how their style continues to evolve.

Four Jewelry Style Ideas On Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming, why not get mom something classy and fabulous, like some great jewelry? Here are a couple suggestions for some great finds to suit any mom's style:

Mother's Day Jewelry Style 1
Trendy mom – If your mother is one who likes to get noticed, then opt for buying her fun costume jewelry that will make a statement. This is the year and the season of oversize eye-catching pieces, so finding the perfect gift should be a breeze. Look for pieces that you think she would wear. Is she more of a necklace fan? If so, get her a great chunky beaded necklace in a bright citrus color like lime green or tangerine. Or does she pile on loads of bracelets everyday? If that's the case, aim for a signature bangle bracelet with a fun pattern.

Mother's Day Jewelry Style 2
Classic mom – For the timeless mom, there are some great updates on classic jewelry favorites. If she adores pearls, then opt for a multi-strand choker in silver or pink pearls. If she wears a lot of pendants, then pick out a locket and have it engraved with a special message. Or, if she's a bracelet fanatic, opt for a beautiful charm bracelet adorned with meaningful trinkets. Personal touches always tend to score a lot of points with mom.

Mother's Day Jewelry Style 3
Sporty mom – If your mom is always on the go and enjoys being active, then you might consider getting her a piece of jewelry that she can wear all the time. A pendant necklace with a fun playful charm like a butterfly, a soccer ball or a starfish is something that is versatile enough for her to throw on with any outfit.

Mother's Day Jewelry Style 4
Laid back mom – Chalk it up to the boho chic phenomenon which has taken over Hollywood, but we've seen our fair share of casually chic moms. This mother's day, show her that you know her style by selecting jewelry to compliment her look. Try a couple of different long beaded necklaces so she can mix and match. Or, choose a large pair of sterling silver cutout earrings.

Jen's Jewels: A look at Jennifer Aniston's Signature Style

One of the most followed stars on the planet, Jennifer Aniston has graced the covers of numerous magazines and is responsible for some of the hottest trends on the list of must haves. Jen's signature style may look effortless, but her look is always pulled together and completed with classic pieces of jewelry. Here, we take a look at some of her accessory staples.

A simple shape – Jen's the girl next door, only richer, more famous and gorgeous. But that doesn't mean that her look is unattainable. Jen opts for American classics and chooses simple pendant necklaces like crosses and discs. Though a matching necklace and earring set accented with round discs may look simple, it's versatile enough to go with any outfit in your closet. Aniston pulled off the look with a simple white tank top, and added a touch of glam with the shiny and smooth necklace.

Not basic black – Jen can pull off a LBD like no one else, but she always manages to kick it up a notch, adding jewelry that is as easy-going as her cool California style. She glammed it up with a bejeweled cross pendant to accent a plunging v neck dress. And she started a fashion phenomenon when she piled on thin gold bangles and a good luck necklace in a simple organic shape. Jen prefers pieces that are dainty, feminine and understated, but it seems her jewelry always makes a style statement regardless.

Silver screen – Even in the movies, Jen's signature fashion and jewelry sense doesn't go unnoticed. In the recent movie He's Just Not That Into You she stole the scene in a simple yet stunning wishbone shaped pendant. The jewelry that she wears not only compliments her personality, but it doesn't compete with her natural beauty.

It's obvious that Jen knows what works and is comfortable enough in her own skin, shying away from fast-lived trends in favor instead of the 'less is more' mentality.
