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.

Kaasumalai:

An absolutely antique and vintage find that goes with anything in your wardrobe. This coin jewellery is quite popular in southern India and most of the brides would have atleast one in this kind.

 

How to wear it? The first one is rather a contemporary version of the kasumalai. Team it with any long haarams or wear it alone.

The long version is the authentic and the classic style. Much suited for the matured and elderly women.

The perfect hues

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!

Revealing the secrets here!

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

Secret 2: Larger-than-life necklaces pair well with dainty chains.

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.

     Must have pieces for parties!

Do you love parties, but you’re not really sure how to dress up for one? What if you are shy and just want to make a good first impression? Not to worry –we are here to your rescue!
Buying and owning jewelry is one of the best perks of being a girl, so it’s our accessory-loving duty to tell you what sparkly essentials you need in your jewelry box. And while we encourage you to indulge in any jewel trend of the moment, we’ve made a list of the top 10 pieces of jewelry every woman should own to stun at a party:

  • hMUST HAVE #1 –  Long earrings

 Mostly reserved for evenings or events, these will again make a statement and finish your look, and make your face pop.

  • MUST HAVE #2 –A Menswear-Inspired Watchw1
    Besides keeping you punctual, a great menswear-inspired watch is the perfect way to ground your girly jewelry.Invest in one that looks like it could be shared with either your boyfriend or even your grandpa, with a slightly bigger face and either a metallic or leather strap.
  • MUST HAVE #3 – A Strand Of Pearls
    We love how this never-out-of-style piece can top off a ladylike look and make it feel exquisitely sophisticated and classic. Worn with a simple black dress, a strand of pearls is always a sweet choice. It should work on its own and be neither too short nor too long. Think: Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
  • MUST HAVE #4 – Large Metallic Hoops
    Sometimes, a simple hoop can add just the right amount of interest to your look, particularly when your hair is pulled off your face. A thinner hoop that is larger than a silver dollar manages to feel both festive and feminine.
  • MUST HAVE #5 – Diamond studs

        Marilyn Monroe declared with a lot of conviction “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. We couldn’t agree more. Diamond         studs are expensive but they are totally worth the investment you are making. On days when you aren’t really sure               what to wear, you’ll find diamond earrings are almost always appropriate.

  • MUST HAVE #6 – The Cuff Bracelet

          Add sizzle to your wrist year-round with a sleek cuff bracelet. Wear a cuff (or two) to feel like the superhero you are.             We especially love them paired with something sleek—like a longer sheath dress or even a pencil skirt and corset                look.

  • pMUST HAVE #7 – A Right-Hand Ring
    Since your left hand is reserved for more serious jewelry (like wedding bands or grandma’s old ruby ring), think of your right hand as a place to play. Go for something that is stackable,colorful, or oversized, and that can ideally be worn on your pointer or middle finger for impact.
  • MUST HAVE #8 – Something Rock ‘n’ Roll
    Rock ‘n’ rollers have long since defined our love of studs,chains, spikes, and tough symbols. Use a piece you love, like pyramid stud earrings or a leather cuff, to offset the sweetness of a feminine floral dress or add an unexpected touch to a more conservative suit.
  • MUST HAVE #9 – Gold and Silver Studss
    While you wont be making any huge fashion statements with a simple stud, they are essential to finish a look. We love a domed ball for versatility but like a pyramid stud, bar, or shape, like a heart or star, too. These little metallic must-haves are best worn when either your necklace or bracelets are making the statement.
  • MUST HAVE #10 – A Locket
    A vintage-inspired locket can provide character and interest to almost any outfit. We love it thrown on with a casual tee and jeans, but this old-fashioned treasure will also make a modern dress look even cooler.

While a jewelry box brimming with beautiful baubles is nice, chances are you won’t even wear most of the pieces in there —if you can even remember that you have them.So now ladies, you have your very own personalised list of must-haves to get that party started!Go on and shine like a star!

        LIVE IN BLOOM

As thoughts of cooler weather approach, most people turn their thoughts from bold, fun accessories to heavy, warm layers. But, just because the temperatures drop, doesn’t mean your fashion style has to hibernate too!

So, what type of accessory is perfect for Fall or Winter? For a sophisticated, but still on trend look this season, floral designs are actually the way to go. As seen all over the New York Fashion Week runways this year, this beautiful pattern is going to be one of the most popular as we head into cooler temps.526606_570x0

Flowers as jewels on your mehendi, are now more of a norm rather than an exception and while it may have started with the usual white flowers as a maang tikka , floral jewellery has gone a whole new level of cool ever since!

Though floral is seen as the perfect spring-summer theme, when it comes to jewelry, one thinks more long term. The well-designed flower motif goes perfectly with both the traditional sari and an evening gown. The rest of the work can be done by making the jewel flexible and choosing the right apparel while donning the piece.

The contemporary outlook has seen floral jewelry getting smarter with irresistible combinations of colors, styles,designs and  materials used. From pearls to precious colored stones to desi polka and enamelling, there are myriad asymmetrical rounds, half rounds, ovals and spheres are trends in jewelry to give modernity to traditional symmetrical shapes.

Apart from featuring just at weddings, floral designs have trickled their way into the big screen and we get to see the illustrious First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama to our very own Superstar Aishwarya Rai adorn beautifully crafted floral designs below:
