    We're firm believers that beautiful jewelry does not necessarily mean delicate links or shiny rhinestones (not that we're don't love both of those things), but rather, something that stands alone itself as a piece of art. Michelle Lane's spring '12 lookbook delivers a collection of strong statement pieces that compliment the warmer season ahead wonderfully. No stranger to the use of ropes and nautical knots, Lane's newest line also incorporates the material for pieces that might appear heavier but carry a light ease, such as in a twisted ivory- and brass-colored necklace, and prism-dropped earrings accented by a not-too-thick strand of black. Taking inspiration from Giuseppe Garibaldi, a noted Italian sailor and military figure, the collection mimics Giuseppe's maritime legacy and "quite chic" appeal, according to the designer. Take a first look at the entire Michelle Lane collection, and explore uniquely beautiful options in jewelry for spring '12.
