Weird Wedding Cultures, Practices around the World

Posted by Sylvans at 12:00:00 PM in Fire & Ice by Forevermark (3)

Promising their vows in white gown for the woman and suit for the man and exchanging special wedding rings like Fire & Ice by Forevermark is the usual picture when we think of the traditional American wedding. But this image isn’t always the case, in some parts of the world where bizarre marriage customs are practiced. In Fiji, the groom must present a whale’s tooth to his future father-in-law to marry his daughter. In Scotland, the soon-to-be-wed couple is pelted with rotten stuff as a ‘test’ if they can stand the worst of times together. In China, a couple may dissect a chicken to check if the liver is healthy; if yes, they can set a date. In Mauritania, a full-bodied bride is preferable as a symbol of prosperity and good luck, so brides are often over fed to look plump on their wedding day.

Diamond shapes

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Christopher Designs (21)

The shape of your diamond says a lot about your style. Round diamonds are preferred by women who have a fuss-free style. They don’t follow trends and are confident that their taste transcends time. The princess cut diamond, meantime, fits women who like contemporary styles. This cut, in fact, is preferred by Hollywood couples these days, making the princess cut a trendy design. On the other hand, the emerald cut like a Christopher Designs evokes a vintage appeal. It’s an ideal fit for women who are confidence and have a deep sense of art and heritage appreciation. Like the emerald cut, the Asscher cut has the same appeal. So, when choosing the right diamond for engagement or wedding, make sure the shape matches the wearer’s personality.

Sterling silver jewelry style options

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Charles Krypell (25)

The beauty of Charles Krypell Sterling is that you have a choice of combining the precious metal with other metal types and add one or two gemstones to create an impressive accent. You can choose purely sterling silver such as the Roxy Collection, which is set with one type of gemstones from a range of colors. Or, you can combine sterling silver with 18k rose gold and select from a wide array of two-tone pieces from necklaces to bracelets and to earrings. For instance, a sterling silver set with rose gold bead accents creates a tease that breaks the monotony of a single tone piece. On the other hand, you can combine sterling silver with 18k yellow gold for a classier style. The yellow gold provides a secondary accent to the colored gemstone-topped jewelry pieces.

Exclusivity above luxury and popularity

Posted by Sylvans at 3:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball Watch may be less popular than the famous luxury Swiss watches, but that is actually a brand strength. Although many people like jumping on the bandwagon—a psychological trait that we don’t want to be left out on something—some prefer swimming on a different tide. These people put more premium in exclusivity or being not ordinary. On this note, wearing a Ball can make you unique and a person who seems to know more about exclusive watches beyond just what one sees in ads. Incidentally, Ball watches are worn by the more discerning celebrities. These include Denzel Washington in his movie, Pelham 123, and KISS drummer Eric Singer. They may not evoke a Tiger Woods-level promotion of another brand or an Olympic-magnitude marketing like another watch, but that’s the point—you and only a few people with exclusive taste are in the know.

The Basics of wearing colored jewelry

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (18)

Colored jewelry like Suna Bros. lends to your personal style more confidence and a fashion-forward air, which helps you to stand out in a room of people who stick to classic designs. But there’s a reason why only a few people are fond of wearing colored jewelry in formal events: color matching is tricky.  Color adds another dimension to the other factors that you need to factor in when wearing jewelry, such as weight and metal type; in short, color complicates an already fiddly jewelry fashion. For starters, you need to understand the basics of color matching using a color wheel. Colors that are opposite of each other in the wheel create contrast; the one can be a base, while the other the accent. On the other hand, adjacent colors in the wheel are complementary, meaning, you can wear both colors in equal weight.
