Padma Lakshmi‘s Fall 2010 jewelry collection appears to be much bolder than her previous designs. The supermodel and Top Chef host has created some stunning, wearable pieces for the modern woman. My favorites include the Snake Lariat Necklace and Snake Ring. Serpent jewelry has been around since Roman times and embodies grace, power, protection and wisdom. According to Padma, a woman should never play up both her jewelry and clothes. “Let one be the star and one the supporting player,” she says. I couldn’t agree more! Too much bling is never a good thing.
