Paris Haute Couture Week Highlight: Statement Rings

by esther925 29. January 2009 17:36

 

 

The Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is coming to a close.  It is always an interesting and entertaining show, but not exactly market-ready.  The designers featured in Haute Fashion Week showcase designs which are really meant to show their design ability and influence; what they put out in the marketplace is really a watered-down version.  For instance, take a peek at the oversized ring worn by a model on the catwalk.  It got your attention, didn’t it?  The runway influence that you can gather from this photo is that statement jewelry is still a big influence.  So, wear it big and wear it proud.

 

ZuluMoon has an enormous selection of rings to choose from.  You may like this open-shank Black Onyx Ring, this flower ring made out of heart-shaped turquoise pieces, or this sizeable pearl and pave CZ ring.

Caribbean + Volcano + the Mystery of Atlantis= Great Heart Pendants

by esther925 26. January 2009 16:02

A new addition to ZuluMoon is their Larimar Jewelry.  If you are like me, you’ve never heard of it before.  Well, I’ll share a few of the highlights of the Larimar gemstone as told on the official ZuluMoon Larimar page….  It is mined from volcanic tubes in the deep blue waters of the Caribbean, and is a rare gemstone indeed. (How rare?  Check out the link above to the ZuluMoon page!) Larimar is mined by hand and is sometimes called the Atlantis Stone because it is said to be the gem of the lost continent of Atlantis.

As you see below, Larimar is a pretty, delicately blue stone.  These heart pendants are particularly amazing, because their beauty is undeniable and the wonderful rarity and mystery that surrounds the stone makes it even more enchanting.  Gentlemen, this is the gift for which you’ve been searching.  This is the one for the lady whom you love.

Pictured at left is a heart pendant with Larimar inlays and 24k gold accents Pictured at right is a heart pendant with Larimar inlays and white topaz accents. Either one is sure to please.

Celebrity Fashion: Turquoise Jewelry is the Choice for Eva Mendes

by esther925 25. January 2009 16:26

Eva Mendes could choose anything, absolutely anything, to accent her white Dior evening gown at the Golden Globe Awards.  What would you choose?  As you see here, Ms. Mendes stunned the crowd with this beautiful turquoise collar necklace and coordinating earrings.  Turquoise, is of course, a beautiful and ancient natural mineral which appears in a range of colors from green to blue-green to bright aqueous blue.  While it was a common staple in ancient cultures, it still makes its way back into modern fashion, as seen in Ms. Mendes’ red carpet photo.

ZuluMoon carries hundreds of turquoise jewelry items for you to choose from.  Perhaps you like the triple-strand turquoise necklace as pictured below, or the double-strand roped necklace with the beautiful silver pendant detail.

Sweetheart Gifts for Her: Part 2

by esther925 23. January 2009 16:39

Continuing with the theme of gifts for your “sweetheart”, sorted by his/her personality traits, here are more ideas for the special woman in your life.

 


If your sweetheart is tenderhearted, timid, or introverted, then this slimline bangle with dainty open heart will be the perfect expression of love.  Although it is small and dainty, it lacks nothing: the heart contains genuine rubies and the bangle is plated with 18k gold.


Is your sweetheart especially sentimental?  Perhaps there is something particularly special that you share, such as a nickname, or a quote, or an anniversary date…?  Get it engraved on this beautiful and durable sterling silver key chain, and she will enjoy it day after day, for years to come.


Does your sweetheart have a tendency to doodle and scribble whenever she’s got a pen in her hand?  It is her capricious side trying to get out.  Give her a fun, whimsical, yet romantic gift: this lovely 16 inch sterling silver chain necklace with a whimsical heart pendant, held onto the chain with a smaller heart.  Your sweetheart is sure to embrace it…and you.


If your sweetheart is a bold woman, or at least she likes to wear bold jewelry, then this triple-strand necklace with large pave CZ heart pendant would make a wonderful gift and addition to her jewelry collection. - See all of the heart jewelry on the the sterling silver store zulumoon.com

Celebrity Fashion: How to Accessorize a Pantsuit

by esther925 22. January 2009 19:05

 

 

Angelina Jolie looks inspiringly elegant in her ivory pantsuit ensemble.  I love how she pulled it off, and we can learn some valuable tips on how to wear such a pantsuit and look glamorous instead of matronly. 

Tip #1: Go for the monochromatic look—all ivory allover.  Tip #2: Wear with heels to maximize your height and slenderize your appearance.  Tip #3: Roll up your sleeves a few times to expose your manicured hands and bejeweled fingers.  Tip #4: Accessorize with loads-of-sparkle long CZ earrings and one or two large cocktail rings; pull back your long hair if necessary to show off the lovely earrings.

 

Now that you are fully armed with ways to duplicate Ms. Jolie’s look, here are a few picks from ZuluMoon’s cubic zirconia range for accessorizing, including these long tear-shaped CZ earrings and this triple-braid CZ ring.

Sweetheart Gifts for Him: Part 2

by esther925 21. January 2009 17:46

If you have a special man in your life and you are searching for the perfect gift, here are a few ideas.  (Part 1 of this article was published on 1/10/09.)

 


If the man in your life is particularly shy when it comes to wearing jewelry, or perhaps he is a man who just likes to stick to the basics, this ring could be the perfect choice for him.  A beautiful square-cut piece of black onyx tops the brawny sterling silver band.  No frills, and easy to coordinate with many outfits and many occasions.



If your man likes a little bling when he’s out and about, then this sterling silver mens ring with 4 princess cut CZs  and 16 round CZs will make a great gift.  The texture atop the silver band adds to the sparkle and shine of the ring, so the “bling” effect is sure to be noticed.



If your sweetheart could be classified as a “gentle giant” or a “teddybear”, this large mens’ spinner ring may be just the right fit for him.  Available in ring sizes 8-13, this sturdy sterling silver wide band with a crosshatch pattern has a rope-shaped spinner band to top it off.  Your cuddly man will appreciate the masculine appearance with the easy wearability.



If your sweetheart is at the brink of graduation, or a job promotion, give him the added confidence he deserves with the gift of handsome cufflinks.  This pair is a modern rectangular shape with a high-class black genuine onyx inset.

horses in the field

 

Are you, or someone you know, a horse lover?  Do you oooh and aahhh at the sight of the four-legged maned creatures?  Do you have horse screensavers for your computer?  Have you ever claimed to have a special horse whispering talent?  If so, then you are certifiably a horse lover, AND, you’ve come to the right place.

 

ZuluMoon has lots of horse-themed jewelry, over 100 horse-themed jewelry items to choose from.  The ring featured below is great for an equine fixation; the cutout design is a continuous walking horse to feed your obsession.

Bold Earrings for Bold Fashion Colors

by esther925 15. January 2009 02:15
      

Sometimes, it's hard to match anything to an offbeat color, such as the green dress by Ella Moss above, or a pop color in your wardrobe like the orange wrap dress from Banana Republic.  Many times, sterling silver is the answer, and the best balance is achieved when you choose a bold design, something more daring than short hoop earrings.

I love these high-polish french wire earrings below.  Not only are they silver, so they can color-coordinate with almost anything in one's closet, but the bold art-deco design is a strong enough force to be worn with an ultra-bold color such as the ones pictured above.

Celebrity Fashion: Jordin Sparks at the Peoples Choice Awards

by esther925 14. January 2009 01:42

The people have made their choice.  At least, that's the principle behind The Peoples Choice Awards, which aired their 35th annual ceremony last week.  Hooray to all the winners, and congrats to all the nominees.  Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown won an award for their duet, No Air.  Ms. Sparks enthusiastically accepted the award, so excited, she even carried her purse on stage.  Her choice of attire was a beautiful ensemble…the bright blue dress, with gold purse, gold necklace with crown charm and oh yes, that sizeable amber or amber-colored ring worn on her right hand.  If you like her ring, check out this oblong amber ring  here at ZuluMoon.com.  It features a piece of natural amber in a modern and celeb-worthy setting, as seen below.

Be Charmed Again by Charm Bracelets

by esther925 13. January 2009 09:16

 

I fell out of love with charm bracelets circa 1989, along with many other things I wore in that decade.  I've only seen a few charm bracelets that I like since then.  But this creation from Juicy Couture is the first one in 20 years that I recall actually getting excited about.

 

It's not too dainty; its boldness makes this a special piece, not an everyday bracelet.  Also, the collection of charms on this bracelet, "The 'Royal Escapades' Charm Bracelet", are genuinely interesting not grandma-esque or Tiffany mimics.  I just adore the hearts, the bird, the tassle, the fleur-de-lis, and the crown (which is also a locket) with subtle CZ accents.  Also noteworthy, with the gold/black/splash-o-coral color combination, it's a very on-trend look.  But this is to be expected of the culture giant Juicy Couture.
