Beauty of Turquoise Jewellery

When it comes to fine crystal jewellery, turquoise jewellery is always a fantastic choice. Turquoise is a beautiful stone that has been worked into amulets and jewellery for thousands of years. It is found in many different parts of the world and its wonderful green and blue colour has made a favourite of civilizations as far apart as the ancient Chinese and Native Americans.

We love the bright colours of turquoise jewellery. There is something about the richness and brightness of this crystal that look simply stunning. Turquoise jewellery makes a wonderful gift and we at Mysticcollections have a great choice of turquoise jewellery.

Healing Power of Turquoise

Different cultures have ascribed differing powers to turquoise as a healing stone, but there are some main attributes that they all agree on. Turquoise is believed to protect from both physical and spiritual harm and it has historically been carved into amulets against sorcery. In modern crystal healing, turquoise is still used for protection, as well as its calm, balancing energy. It is believed to stabilize mood swings and bring relief to people who are exhausted or overworked.

Turquoise pendants are among some of our most popular pieces of jewellery. Pendants really show off the beauty of crystals and they put the gemstone centre stage in your look. Below are some of our favourite turquoise pieces, that can be worn for both special and everyday occasions.

We believe that jewel tones are the perfect hues to encompass the transition from summer to fall. Brightness stays but becomes more saturated, more confident. Here are a few ways to bring these tones into your wardrobe, to celebrate this season of change:

Sophisticated, royal, seductive… these semi-precious stones are colored by the earth. They will add a pop of color to a neutral outfit. And since jewel tones complement each other, feel free to mix and match for a combination that’s just right.

There’s a romance about wearing a color that came from deep inside the earth. It slept there, in a cave, sparkling quietly in the darkness. It waited to be unveiled to show the brilliance that it’s capable of. Bring that brilliance everywhere you go.

A deeper, more mysterious set of colors to capture the wandering spirit of upcoming autumn in these last few moments before winter preparations must begin.

Tribal Trends

Traditions are what tie people together. A tradition is a shared experience that connects us to the human race. There is more to accessorizing than simply matching an outfit. Tribal fashions are on the rise, and it’s no wonder why. Decorating ourselves w

ith layered strands of beads, large wooden blocks and exaggerated dangling chains makes us feel connected to to tradition– to our ancestors. Those looks of years gone by have stood the test of time.  So we embrace them today and will carry them through to tomorrow.

Let’s explore a few of the elements that can give jewelry that tribal feel:

Materials

Dyed bone helps us feel grounded and in tune with our instincts. Oxidized silver, wood and shells help us feel closer to the Earth. All metals are precious and a gift of honor in ancient societies.

Symbols

Om_Symbol

Certain symbols of peace and hope are easily identified across many cultures. The Om is an example of one of these universal symbols.

Colors

Colors like black, white and silver are wonderfully offset by bright red. These are timeless color choices that have been used in tribal jewelry since the very beginnings of civilization, because these colors are commonly found in nature (in the form of ebony, seashell, metal and coral).

Whatever your style, whatever your reason for wearing the tribal trend, choose accessories that make you feel strong and proud!

Revealing the Layering secrets

Layering necklaces is one of our favorite trends at the moment. We just love the look of stacked up dainty gold jewelry. Every piece can be delicate and minimal on its own, but when layered together, it makes the perfect statement. Bring some of your old jewelry back to life by pairing it with new. Try out these chic necklaces to get the look!

Secret 1: Go for a graduated effect—delicate shorter necklaces with slightly chunkier, longer necklaces.

5 simple rules for statement fashion!

The term “statement” is one of the most oft-heard (and maybe slightly overused) words in fashion, whether it’s via an email subject line that promises “10 Statement Necklaces To Fall In Love With” or coming out of your own mouth when talking to a friend about what to wear tomorrow night. “Statement piece” is todays buzzword for sure!

 What better way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement jewellery?

Statement pieces are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements if they are not worn correctly.

Here are 5 simple rules to get the statement piece fashion right!

1. Less is more

Bold pieces should be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close proximity of each other.

2. Keep it simple

Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Steer clear of busy patterns and embellishments such as sequins when wearing bold jewelry.

3. Choose earrings wisely

When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Also make sure that your make-up balances well with your earrings. If you are wearing a brightly coloured pair, they may look best with clean and simple makeup.

4. Adorn your arms tastefully

Cuff bracelets are an excellent choice if you want to wear a statement piece. To show yours off, keep your arms bare or wear a cuff over a slim-fitting one colour long sleeve top. Stick to one cuff to create a focal point.

5. Wear pieces that create an outfit

Remember that statement pieces are supposed to make – you guessed it – a statement, so choose pieces that help to create an over-all outfit. If you are going for a prim and polished look, opt for pearls . Vintage or floral pieces will look beautiful with a romantic and feminine outfit, while colourful beads are a must if you are going for a boho look.

TREND ALERT: STATEMENT EARRINGS

So you’re not into the whole ear cuff trend, but you want something more dramatic than diamond studs in your ears as you walk down the street/red carpet/aisle? ENTER STATEMENT EARRINGS.

Set aside all those statement necklaces you’ve been hoarding and get excited for this new accessory to look out for. They’ve been all over the Spring 2015 runways.They add just the right amount of drama to an outfit.

In this post we are going to help you realize the importance of a pair of statement earrings in your treasure box by showing you different ways to pair them up.

  • STREET STYLE:Wear your statement earrings with a minimalist look. Pair a basic blazer, ripped jeans, an envelope clutch, and sleek heels to add a level of sophistication. Remember it is always best to keep the rest of your outfit simple when you are wearing a statement piece.And if you feel that the high end 4statement pieces aren’t for you then this is a jewelry trend the highstreet does particularly well using plastic, crystal or glass alternatives that look equally as elegant and on trend.
  • 1WEDDING STYLE :A sparkly pair is a more traditional way to make a statement.When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Remember, it’s all about balance, so while you can pump up the volume with simple earrings, larger ones will balance better with loose waves or poker-straight hair.
  • WORK STYLE:The easiest way to nail the ‘Office look’ with statement earrings would be to ‘Keep it simple’.Pair a very contemporary(preferably geometric cut) statement earring with any casual work attire and refrain from wearing any other piece of jewellery to be a hit!2
  • NIGHT OUT :A Little Black Dress (LBD) is one of the most versatile and stylish pieces a woman can own.They also act as the best canvas to try out bold jewelry.So, pick a big and bold pair. Dangly, Hoops, or Studs can all work, as long as they make a statement. This is not the time for anything dainty, and remember to wear your hair up to make the earrings known.

So, now you ladies are well equipped and know how to get out and be your own ‘SHINING ARMOUR’!

Indians believe that your “prana” or “life force” must be in balance in order for you to stay healthy. All of the paths of your “prana” run down to your toes, so the idea that a marital symbol could double up as a reproductive enhancer is not a big stretch.
Scientifically, Silver being a good conductor, it also absorbs the energy from the polar energies from the earth and passes it to the body, thus refreshing whole body system.Toe rings can really make an outfit sparkle . Beautiful wrapped toe rings in gold and sterling silver, gem toe rings, double toe rings, and illusion toe rings are all over the place this season.
