A Great Feeling When Wearing Pearl Earrings

Girls always find happiness in jewelry. Most of the women all over the world like to use earrings. This jewelry makes their day perfect and gives them a wonderful feeling that they will start their day on the right foot and end it wonderfully. One thing that they can make earrings look elegant and so amazing are the stones that are placed on them. The most sophisticated kinds of gemstones that can make it so great are none other than the humble pearl. Almost all kinds of jewelry that have pearls will look classy and fashionable. The great thing about pearls is the wholesome image that it can give you.  Maybe I’m biased, but I do have a penchant for them. Pearl earrings will bring out your natural beauty.

For some occasions and gatherings pearl stud earrings are the best one to use.

Almost all girls want to have pearl necklace and earring sets. These kinds of jewelry will give them satisfaction. The sweetest things that they can get from their loved ones are these small expressions of affection. They will really appreciate jewelry than flowers or chocolates that wilt and get eaten. Earrings for women mean a lot to them. They prefer to have these than any other things because for them it symbolizes importance. For them all the things that are important are the need to be treasured and lots of tender loving care.

Earrings add life to every woman and accentuate her personality. Every time you wear a certain type of earring implies different moods and can embody hidden messages. The moment you have put it on your ears they will give a delightful feeling that your day will become the perfect one. Again, I admit I’m biased. I just love that extra bit of weight on my ears that feels like someone is whispering gently into them…even if they are only sweet nothings! However, always choose the best one that suits to your personality that best describes you. For those who want to buy some, you can visit discount online stores such as that I frequent. I assure you will find the right ones that suit your tastes and budget.

The New Fashion Trend: Mismatched Pearl Earrings

White and golden south sea pearl earrings

If you follow fashion trends (or even if you don’t), you’ve probably seen celebrities wearing something slightly different on the red carpet this year. If you look closely, many celebs are now wearing mismatched earrings. It’s rumored that this trend started at Dior, but it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, so there’s plenty of time to try out this new trend while it’s still around.

If you want to try out this trend, there is no need to rush out and purchase a pair of mismatched earrings; there are plenty of other ways to try out the look without splurging for a pair of earrings that you might not be able to wear after the trend fades.

 Mismatched Stud Pearl Earrings

If you are really interested in trying out the new mismatched pearl earring trend with stud earrings, there is no better way to do it than by using two different colors of pearls. If you have one set of pearl stud earrings already, this is an extremely easy thing to do. All you have to do is buy one more set of earrings and you will be able to mix and match to your heart’s content. If you are planning on doing this with a white pearl earring, then a great complimentary choice would be either a gold or pink freshwater pearl.

The best part about this type of mismatched style is that when you are done you still have two sets of beautiful pearl earrings that you can wear, regardless of whether you choose to continue wearing
mismatched earrings.

Mismatched Dangling Pearl Earrings

While a little harder to pull off, using dangling pearl earrings is closer to the style being worn today. For this to work, you will want to use a similar color pearl, but find an earring that hangs just off your
earlobe and one that hangs much further down to accentuate the mismatched quality.

Similarly to before, if you already have one of these sets of dangling earrings, then all you have to do is find a complimentary set and you are ready to go.

The mismatched earring trend may seem like an expensive one to follow if you go out and buy a set of earrings specifically designed to be mismatched, but you can easily do the exact same thing with two sets of beautiful pearl earrings, and the best part is that when you are done you will still have two sets of matching earrings that you can wear anywhere that you want.

Laser Lite Earrings

Laser lite earrings are light weighed fashion earrings that are actually cut through by lasers. Designers start the design by digitally drafting the patterns on the computer.    They are then transferred to metals for laser cutting. On thin sheets of  metal such as brass and silver,  or even wood, leather and acrylic; lasers actually pierce and edge through the material at hand to create the finished piece.

Besides 2D designs, designers can also add 3D elements. Two pieces put together to create one pair of three dimensional earrings.

Moreover, there is the 3D element of pumping and sculpting which can add a lot of stones to give out sparkles and textures to what you’re wearing.

Here comes the new seasonal style of laser lite 3D earrings. It actually forms something like lovely snowflakes dangling from your ears!

Another new style of jewelry done by laser cut is the pop out jewelry.    They are the hand drawn laser cut jewelry that comes on a metal plate.  It is a whole new way of presentation and it really makes for an interesting experience when you give it as a gift.

This is a brilliant piece of work because the designs are very intricate and they are hand-drawn and then mass-produced, so they are less expensive than a hand-drawn and custom created piece.

The idea of pop out jewelry is to create jewelry that enable people to play a part of the transformation process, and changing a mere piece of metal or wood into an artistic piece of jewelry.

Japanese Temari

 An ancient Japanese art form, colorful Temari Balls

Temari originated in Japan in the seventh century AD. Te means "hand" and mari means "ball". At first the mari was made using old clothing, such as stockings and tights, and the geometric patterns decorating the ball were embroidered using silk  thread.  Temari was therefore reserved for the wealthiest social classes since only they were able to obtain the expensive materials required. The servants of the wives of the Samurai competed to show their skills at temari-making. During the long voyages to the lands of their future husbands, young Japanese brides-to-be also used  a fine fingering technique to display their most beautiful embroidery. 

Fashionable Temari earrings
Temari, a luxurious craft, was used to celebrate important events such as births, birthdays or marriages. But tradition demanded that, however accomplished a temari might be, it should include a number of deliberate faults so as not to offend the gods, the sole possessors of complete perfection.  Gradually, with the development of cotton, this ball embroidery technique spread beyond Asia and became accessible to ordinary people.  The art of temari is now evolving, with
mothers making and embroidering balls for their kids to play with as they sing  nursery rhymes. In the twentieth century, temari gradually gave way to rubber balls, used purely as toys. However, even if a polystyrene ball has replaced the cloth one that formed the mari, the original art temari has been undergoing something of a revival over the past twenty years or so. There are numerous uses for temari and there is certainly no shortage of design ideas: jewellery, earrings, key rings, and etc.

Diamond Studs Make for a Timeless Fashion Statement

The Oscars, Emmys, and People's Choice Awards are some of the annual events highlighting the achievements of popular screen, television, and stage stars. Millions of viewers tune in to see who won the latest "Best Picture" or "Best Supporting Actress" award, but there is another reason why audiences are enthralled by such programs - the ostentatious display of glamour is excellent water cooler fodder for the workplace!  

Fashion trends are apt to change at the drop of a hat, but some things seem to never change including the selection of jewelry worn, particularly timeless diamond studs earrings. Yes, fresh out of rehab Lindsay Lohan may look stunning in that stunning Dolce & Gabanna silk empire-waist dress, but more often than not she'll choose something like a pair of 14K White Gold Princess Diamond Stud earrings to complement her taste in fashion. Although we can't say nice things about her out of control living, Lohan remains a fashion statement when substance abuse doesn't hold sway.  

The advantage of wearing diamond studs is simple: no matter if you are wearing Signature GUESS blue jeans or a Serafina wedding dress, studs always look great on you. What's more, if build your own appeals to you,then you can choose the style and stone that reflects your personality. When selecting build your own earrings, you can mix/match platinum, 14K yellow gold, or a 14K white gold band with your choice of stone. Simply choose either a three-prong or four-prong setting and build your own diamond stud earrings give you the customization you desire. Of course, karat size matters to most buyers so wearing 3.50 karat diamond jewelry studs when you are gardening may be a bit much. That shouldn't stop you from wearing earrings, but you may find that .25 karat earrings to be more appropriate. Just don't let the fashion police dictate your tastes; Hollywood certainly doesn't!

Guys need not feel left out when it comes to wearing diamond studs. Forest Whitaker has been spotted wearing shirt studs and cuff links while both Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise have been seen sporting a diamond stud earring while strolling around Los Angeles or New York. No, you won't see much Boy George excess when it comes to guys wearing jewelry, but some men seem to like diamonds almost as much as their lady friends do. Of course, if water cooler fodder is what you crave then showing up at the workplace wearing a pair of 14K white gold three-prong diamond stud earrings, one karat or more in size will certainly be a conversation starter. Just don't make the mistake of wearing them when your annual review comes up as flaunting personal wealth can adversely impact the raise coming your way!

In Flanders Fields

It is now the centenary of World War One, the Great War, the war to end all wars.  Unfortunately the madness that we thought must stop never did, and we find ourselves once more at a dangerous crossroads as evidenced by the many tinder dry flashpoints that blight the fragile earth.

Did you see Kate’s brooding picture in the papers, surrounded by a sea of red poppies? Do you know the symbolism and significance of this flower?

It was taken from a poem written by a Canadian soldier, John McCrae.  And it goes like this:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

       Between the crosses, row on row,

    That mark our place; and in the sky

    The larks, still bravely singing, fly

 Scarce heard amid the guns below.


 We are the Dead. Short days ago

 We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

    Loved and were loved, and now we lie

          In Flanders fields.


 Take up our quarrel with the foe:

 To you from failing hands we throw

    The torch; be yours to hold it high.

    If ye break faith with us who die

 We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

          In Flanders fields.

I recently bought myself a  pair of rather somber looking poppy earrings made of sterling silver, to remind myself of my own failings and human folly in general.  As they dangle from my earlobes on tenuous wires it feels vulnerable, and I imagine they could be torn from me by brute force at any moment with painful consequence. This I know must be a very poor approximation of what those poor boys went through, where too many of their lives were snatched violently away from them at the bloom of youth. May we never be swept up by such bloodlust again as we ponder Flanders fields.

In Flanders Fields...

How to grab a guy’s attention at a party?

Imagine if you’re at a friend’s party and have spotted the man you secretly fancy on the other side of the room.  The question is, how do you get his attention? 


Wearing jewelry and flattering dress to make an attractive look and having confidence in the way a woman looks and acts are not to mention. Besides these outward appearances, how to interact with a guy to get his attention?  The secret is in the eyes.  Most women try to grab a man’s attention by meeting his gaze, holding it for two to three seconds, then looking away and down.  This gaze is long enough for her to send him a message of interest and potential submission.
Most men are not hardwired to read a woman’s first gaze signal so she usually needs to repeat it three times before the average man picks up on it, four times for really slow men and five or more times for the especially thick.  When she finally gets his attention, she will often use a small version of the Eyebrow Flash – that is a small subtle eye-widening gesture that tells him the signal was intended for him.  The eyebrows rise rapidly for a split second and then drop again.  This is an unconscious signal that acknowledges the other person’s presence and which translates to ‘I acknowledge you and am not threatening.’
If a man doesn’t seem to notice, sometimes a simple face-to-face verbal approach of ‘Hey, I like you!’ is more effective on men who are slow on the uptake.  Lowering the eyelids while simultaneously raising the eye-brows, looking up and slightly parting the lips is a cluster that has been used by women for centuries to show sexual submissiveness.  This is one of the trademarks of the sex sirens and is another good seduction tip to use.  Not only does this gesture maximize the distance between the eyelid and eyebrows, it also gives the person a mysterious, secretive look.
 Try it out, light man’s fire at the party.

There is extra-excitement when preparing our wardrobes and jewelry is no different. The chance to add a little color and fun is irresistible after a long time is just waiting to be tried out.

Your jewelry says a lot about you, but for 2014, it’ll have the chance to say even more, with message and slogan jewelry enjoying a huge rise in popularity. Stock up on these pieces now, because with the many ways this trend can be implemented.

Last year, we saw stacking rings take off in a big way, but this year, every type of jewelry is getting the stacked and layered treatment. Expect to see big armfuls of stacked bangle bracelets, or pendant necklaces combined and layered. Don’t be afraid to mix and match metals, materials, and textures to create many different looks with a rich, eclectic, feel.

The statement jewelry trend is showing no signs of slowing down in this year, and this season, pins and brooches finally get an invite to the party.
You’ll be able to unleash your free spirit this spring, with whimsical motifs making a strong showing on this season’s must-have pendants, charm bracelets and rings.

With Radiant Orchid as Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, it’s no surprise that the captivating hue has taken the spring jewelry scene by storm as well. Amethyst, pink sapphire, and pink tourmaline will be your go-to gemstones for incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year into spring ensembles, with feminine styles and silhouettes offering a perfect complement for Radiant Orchid’s romantic feel. Pink sapphire, pink tourmaline or amethyst jewelry will also go with all your favorite spring pastels!
Perhaps the biggest jewelry trend of past year, statement necklaces are still going strong in this year. And with so many options now available, it’s easier than ever to add your individual touch to any ensemble. Bright, multicolored pieces are cropping up everywhere now that spring wardrobes are being brought out of the closet, and we’re seeing people experimenting with more variations. Layers, multigem creations, beaded and floral numbers — whether your style is feminine, boho, or rocker-chic, there’s something for everyone this spring.
Cuff bracelets have proved their staying power over the last couple of years, but for this year, they’re getting a chic update in cut-out styles, in line with the rise of everything perforated this season. Slip one on when you’re headed out the door — they’re a great alternative to an armful of bangle bracelets for the woman on the go.
The runway collections saw an abundance of pearl jewelry in all colors and styles, from delicate and feminine strands to edgy, oversized chokers — good news for those of us looking to bring this timeless fashion staple out from the bottom of our jewelry boxes. Wear them in statement styles to add a polished finish to your wardrobe staples, or pair them with a leather jacket for a look that’s edgy yet sophisticated.
