Why Would You Choose Swarovski Crystals as a Bride or Bridesmaid?

Why Would You Choose Swarovski Crystals as a Bride or Bridesmaid?

Swarovski crystals are very popular on elegant jewelry – and it’s perfectly understandable why. They shine beautifully, they can be incorporated in a myriad of designs, and they are quite versatile in terms of what they can be worn with as well.

Why would you wear Swarovski bridal jewelry (as a bride or as a bridesmaid)?

We have some tips for you – continue reading to find out more.

The history behind Swarovski crystals is quite interesting. Daniel Swarovski was born in Bohemia at the end of the 19th century, to a father who was a glass cutter and who taught him everything he knew. Later on, in 1895, Swarovski and two partners opened the first Swarovski company (in Wattens, where their HQ remains to the date).

  • At first, Swarovski saw his special crystals as a less expensive alternative to diamonds (and his very motto was “a diamond for everyone”). Later on though, the crystals started to be appreciated in their own right – and the glass produced by Swarovski is even used for far more than jewelry (they started to produce optical instruments through Swarovski Optik in 1935, making telescopes, binoculars and other similar products.
  • Swarovski crystals are extremely versatile and highly appreciated everywhere in the world today – including by many brides. Swarovski bridal earrings can add a dash of elegance to your look, a Swarovski can adorn your décolletage beautifully, and a Swarovski backdrop necklace can add a real touch of uniqueness to your entire attire.
  • Not only do Swarovski crystals look like diamonds, but they also come in a wide range of colors too. Crystal (transparent/ white) is the most common option, but you can find silver, golden, black, amber, and blue Swarovski crystals as well. Even more, you can find very unique colors, such as Crystal Volcano (a mix of red, purples, and blues that blends together marvelously), or Crystal Vitrail Light (a white crystal with stunning colorful reflections to it). No matter what colors you have chosen for your wedding decor or for your bridesmaids’ dresses, you are bound to find Swarovski crystal jewelry that truly suits your wedding style!

Choose the Best Wedding Jewelry According to Your Personality

Choose the Best Wedding Jewelry According to Your Personality

Your wedding look is about more than just trends: it’s about you and who you are. It’s about your own unique style, your personality, the kinds of things you like. It’s about the way you choose to create the biggest and most unforgettable day of your life: your wedding.

Sure, wedding trends are great and they do provide brides with a lot of inspiration – beyond that, though, you want your bridal look to mirror your very own self.

How to choose your wedding jewelry according to your personality and style? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

custom-made-bridal-jewelry

  • If you’re the kind of bride who wants an ultra-romantic and elegant wedding (such as a ballroom wedding, for instance), you should choose wedding jewelry that reflects your taste in luxury. Our suggestion is going for something that will make a real statement about your unique style – such as a beautiful Swarovski crystals forehead piece, for example.
  • Low-key elegant. Some of you might want to have a low-ley elegant wedding – such as a modern wedding held in a naturally beautiful landscape or surrounded by high-end works of art (e.g. a museum wedding, for example). If that’s the case, the jewelry you should choose should be just as low-ley sophisticated as your wedding – such as this lovely rose gold back necklace, for example.
  • There’s nothing more elegant or sophisticated than timeless style – the kind that will never go out of fashion, the kind that will always look attractive. If you want a traditionally classy wedding, you should pick jewelry that reflects that. Our suggestion in this category is a beautiful pair of Swarovski ivory pearl earrings featuring a stunning chandelier design – classy, but full of personality at the same time too.
  • There’s something about vintage fashion that will always fascinate us: something timeless and fully of history, something inherently romantic and sweet, something worthy of a novel. If you like this style and if your personality is always turned towards the fashion of decades past, you might want to consider at least one piece of vintage-inspired jewelry – such as this gorgeous bracelet, for example.

4 Types of Accessories That Will Make You Look Memorable on Your Wedding Day

4 Types of Accessories That Will Make You Look Memorable on Your Wedding Day

Few things are more important for a bride other than looking perfect on her wedding day – and given what a unique event this is, it is completely understandable why most brides feel this way.

Have you considered your wedding day accessories, though?

If you are looking for the best options, here are 4 types of bridal accessories bound to make you look memorable on your wedding day:

Rose gold earrings, rose gold bracelets, and rose gold necklaces – here at Treasures by Agnes, we have a pretty wide variety of bridal accessories adorned with rose gold, so you have plenty of options to choose from.

Whether they are incorporated in a small pair of pear earrings or as a double-layered statement necklace, pearls are bound to make you feel drop dead gorgeous!

How to Pick Your Wedding Necklace According to Your Face Shape

How to Pick Your Wedding Necklace According to Your Face Shape

Every woman is beautiful in her own way – and here at Treasures by Agnes we have always believed that our jewelry has the power to make ladies feel at their very best, especially on their special day: their wedding.

Of course, you want to make sure you choose wedding accessories that suit you not just from a style-related point of view, but also from a personal and physical point of view.

For instance, do you know what kind of necklace works best for your face shape? If not, we have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

handcrafted bridal jewelry

  • Oval shape. This is the closest to the ideal face shape, so naturally, women with this face shape can wear a wider range of types of necklaces. If you are the proud “owner” of an oval face shape, you are blessed with the power of choosing from a very wide range of options. For instance, if you want to elongate the torso, we would advise a long string of pearls.
  • Round shape. If you have a rounded face shape, you shouldn’t worry - there are so many options for you too! The key lies in always settling for designs that elongate your face: designs that are straight and geometrical. It is highly advised that you stay away from very large necklaces, especially if they aren’t paired with a necklace.
  • Square face. Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, and many other famous ladies have square shaped faces – and oh, how stunning do they look! The secret with this type of face lies in counter-balancing the square shape of the face with my own round ape - you need dainty pieces of jewelry that show off your delicacy and femininity in a graceful and elegant way.
  • Heart-shaped. Although relatively easy to “work with” the heart-shaped face needs a bit of attention to detail too. Our advice is to focus on necklaces that have curves in them (because this will reduce the “elongation” of the face). For instance, a bateau wedding gown neckline will look stunning with a collar necklace!

 

Looking for superb bridal jewelry that will embrace you and who you are? Contact Treasures by Agnes and let’s talk a little about your wedding day and the kind of accessories we can create especially for you. Contact us and we promise you will never regret it!

2019 Will Be an Amazing Year for Bridal Accessories: Here’s Why

2019 Will Be an Amazing Year for Bridal Accessories: Here’s Why

November is here – and that means the end of the year is rapidly approaching. Aside from the holiday season (which we all love), the end of 2018 also brings with it a new beginning in the world of weddings: a whole new wave of trends shaping up and taking over the bridal universe.

Here at Treasures by Agnes, we think it’s going to be a truly amazing year for bridal accessories. Why?

We have gathered some tips you might want to know right below – so read on and find out more.

unique bridal accessories

  • Simplicity will be the new luxury. Everywhere you look for wedding gown trends in 2019, one motif stands out: simplicity. We’re back to the wedding dresses of the late 90s and early 2000s when simple cuts and simple patterns were everything. Expect to see almost bare wedding dresses pop everywhere, in a myriad of cuts and designs meant to suit different body shapes and sizes. Expect simplicity to be the highest form of bridal elegance in 2019 – just like it was with Meghan Markle’s wedding gown!
  • Why is this great for wedding accessories? Because the simpler your dress is, the more you can go over the top and make a huge statement with your wedding jewelry. Just imagine yourself wearing a very simple satin wedding gown and a pair of rose gold statement earrings to complement it – isn’t that a stunning combination?
  • The second big trend we’re seeing take off for 2019 consists of luxurious fabrics. Satin and silk seem to be making a really big comeback next year – so you can definitely expect more and more brides to re-embrace the beauty and opulence of these fabrics.
  • How come this is great for wedding jewelry? Because luxury attracts luxury. A soft silk wedding gown is bound to look marvelous with wedding accessories that truly emphasize its simple luxuriousness – such as crystals, rose gold, pearls, and other true classics of the bridal jewelry world. You’re bound to shine with elegance and beauty if you follow this year’s trends!

Winter Wedding Accessories Ideas You Should Definitely Consider

Winter Wedding Accessories Ideas You Should Definitely Consider

Many brides choose spring or summer as their wedding seasons – and there are, of course, a lot of reasons to do this. However, there are just as many reasons to pick winter for your wedding: the magic, the uniqueness, and the more practical considerations of vendor and venue availability and prices are just some of the advantages of being a winter bride.

Of course, if you decide on a winter wedding date, you’ll want to make sure your attire and look are perfectly coordinated with the season outside – and jewelry should definitely be part of that as well.

What are some of the prettiest winter wedding accessories ideas you should consider? We have some tips for you – continue reading to find out more.

  • Pearl earrings. These beauties are always an amazing choice, regardless of season, style, or even trends. They’re the kind of jewelry that never goes out of fashion – the kind that will always look amazing. Our suggestion is a pair of dripping intricate pearl earrings based on rose gold or antique silver – they look lush and generous, which is perfect for the festive vibes of the cool season.
  • Cubic zirconia necklaces. There’s something utterly stunning about this material that will steal your heart from the very moment you set eyes on it. Because of its reflective capacities, it makes for absolutely gorgeous pieces to be worn during wintertime, especially if you want a glamorous winter wedding. Everyone will want to know what you’re wearing!
  • Hair vines. These are just perfect for every season – but if you want something that’s really well coordinated with winter, you can always settle on “vines” that mimic the appearance of evergreens, snowflakes, or simply vines that incorporate beautiful crystals in them. This is the perfect hair accessory to wear if you want your hairstyle to look worthy of a Winter Queen!
  • Swarovski bracelet. Looking for a stunning piece to put on your wrist for the wedding day? How about a bracelet that incorporates intricate Swarovski crystal models? This kind of piece is perfect if you’re wearing a high-neck wedding dress or a halter top wedding dress because it will complement the glamorous look in a way that doesn’t make it feel like “too much”. Beautiful choice!

 

If you want your wedding jewelry to be created especially for YOU and to suit your unique personality and style, be sure to contact Treasures by Agnes. We’re here to help you SHINE on your wedding day!

How to Choose the Ideal Pair of Earrings for Your Wedding

How to Choose the Ideal Pair of Earrings for Your Wedding

Picking a pretty wedding gown is important for pretty much every bride to be.

What about the accessories, though? How will you adorn your stunning wedding dress to make it pop with style and personality?

Earrings are a very important part of your bridal look – so we thought we could pull together some of the most important tips to help you choose the earrings that will create the perfect look on your wedding day.

How do you do that? Read on and find out more.

  • Consider the shape of your face. We’re nobody to tell anyone what to wear and what not to wear – because, oh well, at the end of the day, each person is different and they like different things. However, you might want to consider the shape of your face when choosing your earrings. For instance, large loop earrings may not look as good on a round face as they do on an oval one.
  • Consider your hairdo. Will your hair be down or pulled up in a hairdo? If you pull it up, we suggest choosing a pair of statement earrings that really makes your face shine with grace and elegance. Of course, you should also consider the precious metal of your wedding jewelry if you want to make sure it really suits you well.
  • Consider your wedding dress. Is your wedding gown very intricate and detailed? Then you might want to choose a pair of earrings that is simple and low-key. If your wedding dress is simpler, you can definitely go for a more intricate pair of earrings. Furthermore, if you have a high-neck wedding dress with details around the neck, you might want to consider the option of a very small pair of earrings that don’t pop as much.
  • Consider your other jewelry. Wearing both a very intricate necklace and a very long, detailed pair of earrings might not be the best idea (and even more so if your dress is detailed as well). In general, try to keep it as well-balanced as you can and create a look that’s elegant, but not over the top.

4 Tips to Help You Pick the Right Precious Metal and Stone for Your Wedding Jewelry

4 Tips to Help You Pick the Right Precious Metal and Stone for Your Wedding Jewelry

Picking the perfect wedding day accessories is almost as important as picking the actual wedding dress – so you definitely don’t want to leave this as a second-priority task on your list of “to-do’s”.

How do you do that? How do you choose the perfect precious metal and stone for your wedding jewelry?

I’ve gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on and find out more.

  • Know your skin undertone. There are three main skin undertones: warm, cool, and mixed. There are also multiple ways to determine which one you have – but one of the surest ways is to analyze the color of your veins. Are they bluish or purplish? Then it means you have a cool skin undertone. Are they yellow, olive, or green? Then it means you have a warm skin undertone. If you see both types of veins, it means you have a mixed skin undertone.
  • What does this mean? Well, people with cool undertones look better when wearing silver, white gold, and platinum, whereas people with warm undertones look better wearing yellow gold, rose gold, or copper shades. Those with mixed undertones can usually wear both – but this depends on a lot of other factors (for instance, some mixed undertone ladies look excellent with silver and rose gold, but so much with yellow gold and copper). When not sure, test it out: get a piece of yellow gold/ white gold/ rose gold jewelry next to your face’s skin and see which of the options makes you shine.
  • How about the stone? Well, the stone of your wedding jewelry should follow the same basic “cool toned/ warm toned” rule. However, if you want to match your stones with your flowers, with your wedding colors, or if you simply want to make your jewelry double as “Something Blue”, that’s fine. In the end, there’s an almost endless variety of ways you can combine precious metals and stones – and you can definitely find a design that makes your best features pop with elegance, grace, and femininity!

4 Essential Tips to Keep in Mind for Perfect Wedding Day Accessorization

4 Essential Tips to Keep in Mind for Perfect Wedding Day Accessorization

As a bride, you want to look nothing less than flawless on your Big Day – and that’s more than understandable, given the huge pressure on your shoulders to create the perfect wedding (and, consequently, the perfect wedding look as well).

Of course, your wedding dress is hugely important when it comes to creating the perfect bridal appearance. However, you should definitely not forget about your bridal accessories either!

Following, we have gathered some of the most important tips to keep in mind for the perfect wedding day accessorization – so read on and find out more.

 

  • Consider the color of the dress and match it with the color of the precious metal. For instance, rose gold is very trendy right now, and it looks utterly luxurious and amazing, but it might not look great if your wedding dress is very Both rose gold and yellow gold look better with off-white, cream, champagne, and slightly golden options – whereas white gold, platinum, and silver look better with cooler shades of white.
  • Consider your wedding gown’s neckline. This design detail will dictate the type of necklace you should wear, the type of earrings you should wear – or if you should wear any at all. For instance, if you plan on wearing a halter top wedding dress, you might want to keep it very minimalist with the accessories around the neck area (meaning both necklace and earrings). You can, however, wear a nice bangle around your wrist.
  • Consider your style. Obviously, you want your wedding day accessories to suit you before they suit anything else. So, if you know you like a certain kind of jewelry (e.g. vintage-inspired or minimalist), wear what you like. At the end of the day, your bridal jewelry is there to help you shine as you walk down the aisle and celebrate this huge life event – it shouldn’t overshadow your personality, and it shouldn’t make you feel uncomfortable in any way. Wear the jewelry that YOU love and you will feel drop-dead-gorgeous!
