Want to Join This Ear Party?

The jewelry stacking game is still going strong, and now more than ever, I wanted to highlight the techniques of mastering this trend. This time around, we’re not going to talk about rings, necklaces and bracelets, because it’s time to have an ear party!

Mixing and matching earrings is not as easy as it sounds. A play on shapes and styles would definitely help put you on top of your game and create a stunning effect that highlights your fashionable sense. From studs to ear cuffs and dangling earrings, your chance to break the rules and prove your character and style is now. Indeed, the world taught us that the most important fashion rule is not to follow one, and no words can express our gratitude for that!

So, back to the earrings, make sure that the ones you choose to stack are proportional. Start off with the longest style as a base because if you wear it on the second ear hole, it might hide the one below it and that’s exactly what you don’t want to happen. You can start with a stud only if the one above it is an ear cuff that perfectly fits your ear, and keep the dangling earrings for the base.

Last but not least, your right ear should not necessarily be like the left one. For a stronger effect, let your creativity run wild and stack’em up!

When you’re tanned and glowing, all you think about is ways to highlight the beautiful color of your skin. This doesn’t only mean choosing summer attires that perfectly complement your sun-kissed complexion, but also the jewelry and accessories you wear.

Speaking of jewelry, what about the pieces you wear on special and fancy occasions? Well, your outfit certainly calls for a high jewelry piece that helps you shine like a star wherever you are. Personally, I prefer to go for yellow or pink gold jewelry pieces when I get tanned, because there is a certain charm in warm gold tones that makes you look so glamorous. Don’t you agree?

Luckily for us, lately the world of jewelry brought to light many exquisite jewelry pieces made of yellow and pink gold – breaking that white gold-diamonds and precious stones equation. Of course, there are still some classics for the ladies who favor this style, but we can’t let the statement yellow and pink gold pieces go unnoticed.

Set with diamonds, colorful gems or black and white hard stones, the creations that we’ve narrowed down for you will let you fall under their spell from the very first glance!

Venice Welcomes Dior’s Latest High Jewelry Collection, “Gem Dior”

Every year, Dior captivates us with a new high jewelry collection that captures the house’s most cherished values. However this year, the jewelry world is celebrating a special occasion: 20 years of Dior Joaillerie. Fit for the legendary French house and its extensive history, “Gem Dior” high jewelry collection is the latest marvel by Victoire de Castellane, writing history by being the largest high jewelry collection the house has ever witnessed.

This chromatic fairytale started last month in the heart of Venice through the Tiepolo Ball, in which Dior celebrated the cultures and savoir-faire of France and Italy. This actually takes us back in time to Charles de Beistegui’s legendary “Ball of the Century” at Palazzo Labia, for which Monsieur Dior designed the costumes alongside Salvador Dalí in 1951. Once again, this place opens a new chapter in the history of the house and welcomes the 38 exquisite parures of the new Gem Dior collection.

Presented in a fashion show that exuded elegance and sophistication, the high jewelry pieces were accompanied by 19 exclusive ball gowns created by Maria Grazia Chiuri – making the 20th anniversary of Dior Joaillerie as unique as it could ever be. With no less than 99 pieces that form 38 swooning sets, Gem Dior is the most extensive high jewelry collection presented by Dior to date. Exploring unprecedented harmonies and subtle color gradations, the pieces stand out by the gemstones that look like they randomly settle on the skin – presenting a raw yet studied irregularity that highlights the expertise of Dior in high jewelry-making.

Today, timepieces are an essential element in a woman’s overall look. That said, the concept of watches in the past was pretty different, as time used to be concealed in a jewelry-like piece in order to take her elegance to a whole new level. With this in mind, timepieces used to come in the shape of a bejeweled bracelet, brooch or pendant. And while wristwatches are all the rage now, we thought it would be interesting to reveal the secrets that make pendant watches so charming.

First of all, a pendant watch is so rare nowadays and that explains its importance as a collectable piece and makes it a worthy investment. On the aesthetic level, a pendant watch bears the charm of a vintage piece and the timelessness of a jewelry creation, which makes it one of the most perfect ways to complement a glamorous evening look. It’s also important to take into consideration the fact that pendant watches make time so secret and subtle, while offering great readability and that’s what makes a timepiece functional.

Although it has become rare to find with a very limited number of watchmaking houses including this style in their new repertoires, the pendant watch is and will remain a must-have statement piece, especially for collectors!
