Magical Jewelry from the sea

Magical Jewelry from the sea

Miles from land and deep into the ocean lives a completely different reality. This is the abyss, a world that we know so little about, yet in our fantasy, we imagine the fiercest, largest and perhaps scariest creatures living there. And we are not wrong. Some of the animals living here have evolved the ability to create their own light with a technique known as bioluminescence. Others have grown to gigantic proportions, with even more gigantic creatures, such as the sperm whale. 

This alien world of wonders have inspired us creating stories, books and art. This world of wonders is also an endless inspiration for the creators of fantastic jewelry. Jewelry inspired by the ocean myths and wonders, that’s the world we would love to drag you into, in this blog.

Jewelry trend of 2017: Roaring animal jewelry!

As we are gradually getting used to living in 2017, we open up more to what the year will bring us, apart from our most personal New Year's Resolutions. We start to look at what holidays we might go on, what to wear and what would match those outfits perfectly.

One of the big trends is the love for poetry, for conserving nature, for sustainability. A love that expresses itself perfectly in jewelry that reflects nature. The animal kingdom is part of our wonderful planet and it not only reminds us of nature, but more often we relate to a certain animal for its particular traits. Or, we love giving them voices and human characteristics as we see in Disney movies and so on. Allow the jewelry animals that you wear to tell their story! Discover the jewelry and the trend:

Glamorous jewelry on the Golden Globe Red Carpets

Glamorous jewelry on the Golden Globe Red Carpets

Wow! La La Land, the most successful movie in the history of the Golden Globes, is certainly on my wishlist for this week!  The movie won 7 awards, including the one for Best Film. 

The Golden Globes ceremony is seen as the opening of fashion season and for many the occasion to watch what jewelry the stars are wearing. Hectic times for pr agencies and stylists as magazines and blogs seem to be sometimes almost more interested in what the stars wear instead of the cultural relevance of movies. But oh my, who wears important jewelry better than those gracious actors and actresses? Longing to see who wore what?

2016, a year in 16 jewelry highlights!

2016, a year in 16 jewelry highlights!

It’s been an incredible year. Many famous people who enlightened our lives with their acting or singing, have left us forever. We saw the craziest of all presidentials campaigns in the U.S. with an even crazier outcome. Just navigating around on the social media platforms might give you the idea that 2016 is a year that needs to be forgotten fast. Of course, this is a sentimental, subjective feeling of some, focussing on all the bad stuff. But it’s been an exciting year for others too. The jewelry world saw its very own highlights and some lowlights. It’s, slowly but very surely,waking up from the past and all professional magazines and sites talk about how retail in jewelry is changing rapidly. Not adapting means not surviving and the industry is not just a few big companies with enough marketing budgets, but also lots and lots of smaller businesses with long family histories. We may not like it, but change is constant and one can simply never rest on their laurels. We bring you the year in 16 jewelry highlights!
