The Rita and Zia Fall 2011 collection is a great example of how to incorporate a very specific bold trend into a collection without the results looking costumey. The Southwestern influence of the jewelry is impossible to ignore, but it definitely works.

Perfect for those wanting to add a bit of bohemian flair to an outfit this summer, the Rita and Zia Fall 2011 collection is the classic mix of a little bit rock and a little bit country. Sandrine Barabinot started the jewelry line in 2005, inspired by her desire to create pieces that would be used as good-luck charms.

There are different meanings to each of the charms. The hand symbolizes protection, while the snake represents fertility, elephants are a symbol of power, images of Native Americans represent wisdom and finally the skull means purity of the soul.

What could be cooler than great jewelry that also has a special meaning to it?
