A little bit of magic

Tarot cards and astrology fans would be happy to find that crystal brand Swarovski has launched a collection specifically for them. For F/W 2019, we turn our focus on a line that puts all things magical into the spotlight. Tarot and astrological elements are seen in the pieces, with sparkling diamonds sprinkled all over the silhouettes. Consider these your personal pieces of positivity in the midst of a chaotic world! At Rustan's, Glorietta, Newport Mall, Robinson's Magnolia, TriNoma, Podium, Power Plant Mall, and SM MOA

Embodying the mystic of tarot, the refined double-sided pendant brings subtle versatility thanks to the sliding mechanism for different lengths. Created to make a style statement, the matching cocktail ring illustrates Swarovski’s crystal-cutting expertise.

“We all desire things with meaning as they make our everyday lives brighter. Swarovski jewelry is a brilliant symbol of expression for today’s modern woman, and as the winter approaches, we want them to wear jewels, symbols and talismans that represent light and positivity as well as empowers and protects. This season the message is to believe in one’s destiny, and in these busy times we’ll take a little everyday magic wherever we can get it.” - Nathalie Colin, Swarovski Creative Director

Revel in Riveted

Local jewelry designer Kristine Dee just recently launched "Riveted", a collection inspired by linking mechanisms such as hinges, rivets, and knots. “This collection came from my interest in looking for different ways to connect precious gemstones and materials. Some connections allow certain ways of movement, especially when worn on the body,” explains Kristine about her latest collection she named Riveted. We love how each piece speaks for itself, and is able to provide the statement an otherwise blah outfit needs.
