Bridal trend: Filagreed jewelry a rich style for today's bride

Filigree, a delicate kind of metalwork, suggests lace and is reminiscent of Indian and Asian metalwork. Popular from the 17th to the 19th century in Italian and French metalwork from 1660 to the late 19th century, Filagree is making a fabulous comeback with brides.  

The Amalie, our Filigree encrusted bracelet with Swarovski large oval rhinestones and smaller decorate rhinestone chain, celebrates this ancient form of art. The Amalie bracelet is available in silver, gold or rose gold metal with silver, aquamarine or vintage rose stones.

Style Alert: The Romantic and Vintage Juliet Cap Veil

Shakespeare's famous tale of love "Romeo and Juliet" offers visions of true love, romantic drama, and hearts filled with longing. One of this year's hottest trends the Juliet Cap Veil offers all that and more. With it's snug to the head style, often delicately embroidered [as our WIllow Veil is seen below] a gathered side or back and long veil trailing down, this look is very classic, feminine and very Downton Abbey! A Juliet Cap Veil matches perfectly with silk biased gowns, big floral arrangements, romantic weddings and all styles past! 

Trend Report: the bold choker necklace

The choker [or very fitted necklace the sits snugly around ones neck like a turtle neck] is by far this season's boldest statement piece of jewelry! Pairing well with low or plunging necklines the choker first made a fashion appearance around the time of English Queen [and notorious bold woman!] Anne Boleyn (remember the pearl "B" necklace worn by Natalie Portman playing Anne Boleyn in "The Other Boleyn Sister"). The choker was immensely popular in the late 19th century partly due to England's Alexandra, Princess of Wales [precursor to Diana!] who wore thick rows of pearls and velvet, setting quite the trend. 

Here we showcase the Isabella Choker by Justine M Couture.

The classic way to secure a choker is with a ribbon at the back, adding a delicate flutter of feminine satin to counter the boldness of the neckline at the front.
