Traditional Pearls Are Hip Again!


We all know (and love!) the simple but classic elegance of a string of pearls. And what’s lovelier than getting that pearl feel and quality by using Swarovski crystal pearls?


But take a look at runways from New York to Paris to Milan and you will find pearls paired in ways that are anything but traditional.

Anyone who has been keeping their eye on the fashion scene would have noticed the pearl creeping back in over the last few seasons as young jewelry designers place them in unexpected places such as ear cuffs and pair them with unusual materials.




This winter, however, you are increasingly going to be seeing the democratization of that classic pearl strand as everyday street wear. Designers are pairing this classic element with denim patches, military jackets and the sports sweaters that are so very now.

This is a great time to dig out your old pearl necklaces or construct a new heirloom of your very own using our beautiful and versatile Swarovski crystal pearls! Adding a simple pearl necklace to your outfit is the best way to look fashionable today.




How to Use the 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala


For 2015, Pantone has announced the color of the year to be the earthy brick red tone, Marsala.


According to Pantone “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”


This beautiful tone is rich and jewel-like and works in all styles.

Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.


Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors.


An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging.

A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.


Jewelry in the marsala shade is going to be all the rage for 2015. Use Swarovski bicones in a variety of colors that fit with the marsala color family such as this custom coated Light Siam Volcano crystal beads.
