THANKFUL, GRATEFUL, BLESSED!

As the days feel shorter, the holidays closer, and our schedules crazier than ever, it's easy to feel overwhelmed this time of year. (After all, that Thanksgiving turkey won’t cook itself!) As we approach the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we all want to be intentional and focus on what’s really important. Here are five tips for staying grateful!

JOURNALING. If the thought of jotting down your feelings seems like a lot of work, fear not. Start small by just writing down one thing you’re grateful for each day and see if you can work up to more.

PRIORITIZING. There are only so many hours in the day and some of those already include eating & sleeping. Before committing to every bake sale, PTA meeting and holiday party, fill your calendar with what is most important to you. Then, schedule accordingly.

A TWIST ON TRADITION. 
This year, instead of a spread worthy of its own Instagram feed, how about a fun potluck that includes a few invites to those who can’t be with their family this year? Create a dish-list sign up that makes for a truly the-more-the-merrier occasion.

GIFT EXCHANGES. 
So. Many. Gifts. Why not draw names instead or exchange hand written cards or framed photos? You’ll spend less time fighting crowds and chasing sales and more time with those you love. And if you need help with those gifts, talk to your Jeweler who can help you with selection, gifting, and delivery! 

WEAR A REMINDER. 
Sometimes it's as simple as looking down and having a gentle reminder to focus on gratitude. Even if it's a hidden message like our new Parker Bracelet set with our count your blessings inscription.

WISH LIST WORTHY

With Christmas around the corner, get a head start now and skip the stress of December shopping so you can relax and enjoy the holiday season! Premier Designs has made it easy for you this Christmas season by carefully crafting the most exquisite, highly versatile pieces that will top off your holiday outfit with the perfect dash of sparkle and glamour!

The “Olivia” set is perfect for adding a little unexpected edge, and has the power to transform your favorite holiday outfit into something fresh off the runway from New York Fashion Week. Be prepared to turn heads with this beautiful, hematite plated crystal lariat earring and necklace set. Pair the necklace with a V-neck top or jumpsuit for next-level drama – and you can also wear it long, or wrap it twice, tie it, or wear it short to flatter any neckline! This would also make an amazing gift for that special friend, sister, or coworker who is always on trend!

 

 

From ancient Chinese royalty, to early modern history icons like Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn, pearls have been a timeless symbol of class, elegance, and luxury. Channel that same sophistication into 2019 with the beautiful “Elizabeth” necklace. But this is no ordinary strand of pearls. The “Elizabeth” puts a modern twist on a classic look by intertwining removable strands of pearls that are both large and small in size, with a shiny and matte finish. Add it with a cream eyelash sweater half tucked into a midi skirt with a red lip, and you’re all set for a kiss under the mistletoe!

MAXIMIZE YOUR HOLIDAY STYLE

Executive Director, Dana Grimes shared this at our 2019 Christmas Capsule LIVE EVENT. Watch the replay >

I love fall and winter fashion! From velvet, leather and sequins to combinations of hot pink and red, pistachio and lavender, the varieties of fabric and colors are plentiful. You’ll also see fun textures like croc and snakeskin.

The 2019 Christmas Capsule is your perfect complement to all of these trends. 

It’s like the bow on the top of a gift. The tissue and wrapping paper are important but the bow is what makes it special!

There are 13 new pieces in the collection, and 5 of those are necklaces, which form the core of the capsule.

The first is the Meg necklace, which I will be wearing on repeat! It’s a two-tone necklace with three strands that can be worn together or separately. The medallions create a classic feel and the matte two tone, layering and hematite facets make it modern. I call this the must have work to weekend staple.

 

 

 

Our second necklace is called Heather, which is a handcrafted Artisan piece that you will wear for years. It has gray and navy beads with hematite crystal stations, and a removable pendant with faux mother of pearl and hematite crystals. This is perfect for wearing with warm or cool tones in your closet. The Heather necklace will wear well with the Bourgeoisie style that was all over the fall runways- think moody florals, geometric patters, slouchy boots and midi dresses. Wear long with the pendant or just the chain doubled for a friendsgiving or cookie exchange.

You're going to love the next necklace, Elizabeth. Someone once said a woman needs row and rows of pearls and Coco Chanel made pearls a must have for women in the 21st century. Well, the Elizabeth necklace has 5 removable strands in polished and matte graduated pearls and is perfect for short wearing with a tweed jacket or long with a retro blouse for the office.

 

 

Olivia is another necklace with amazing versatility. It's a 4-strand lariat with hematite plating and offers a dramatic and fashion forward style. Recently, I was in a clothing store that caters specifically to red carpet events at awards shows. This necklace was the only style they were showing. However, it's easy to take it from a dressy red-carpet look to a more casual, street festival style by wrapping the lariet as a choker.

The final necklace is a showstopper called Jackie. With 15 faced geometric stones that complement every color in your wardrobe, you really can use the necklace to dressed up or down with help from your earrings. It's beautiful on neutrals and worn it tone on tone. Try it for a Thanksgiving gathering, or wear it to brighten up your GO-TO ALL BLACK outfit. Do you have tickets to the Nutcracker this season or a special Christmas concert? This is the perfect necklace to make last year’s cocktail dress feel new again. Or pair it with a pretty silk blouse and winter white pants for Christmas dinner.

Well now you have an entire collection that will look awesome with whatever you choose to wear to welcome 2020!

FALL STYLES

The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are changing, and pumpkin spice lattes are officially brewing… As we pull out the plaid and animal print to transition into cooler temps, here are some of the top jewelry trends that Hollywood’s stylists are betting on this fall!


Layering Necklaces
This is the perfect way to level up any look. The key to mastering this trend is to mix and match. Mix dainty stands with bolder chains. Pair gold with silver and gunmetal with rose gold. Add this to a simple black or white crewneck tee and a pleated mini skirt or plaid trousers to instantly elevate your outfit.

The Modern necklace has an adjustable closure that will flatter every neckline. Or mix it up with the Just a Touch necklace by either wearing the top strand alone, or the bottom strand for a more elongated look, or wear all three together!

Statement Earrings
Dress up a casual outfit instantly with some statement earrings! Wear with your hair up in a topknot or high pony, or pinned back in a low messy bun to show them off. This is the quickest, easiest way to add polish and sophistication to your look, while still looking effortless.

Grab the Go Bold earrings for Friday nights – wear the dark hematite side for the office, and then simply reverse them for some serious sparkle for a night on the town!

Stackable Rings
Add some personality to your look with some stackable rings. Just like with layering necklaces, the key to pulling it off is to combine styles you wouldn’t normally wear together. Mix solid metals with gemstones, or go dainty with bold rings. There are plenty of gorgeous options for you to choose from!

Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings are a classic statement piece without feeling over the top. These add a little edge to any outfit, while still being timeless. These pair perfectly with a turtleneck bodysuit tucked into some high waist jeans or tailored trousers. Add a sleek blazer or a biker jacket and you’re ready to rule the day!

WARRIOR SPIRIT!

The Fall 2019 Collection is all about embracing that fearless, warrior spirit! Animal print, daring twists, and modern statement pieces all bring a sense of unexpected edge and empowerment.

The Seeing Red or Wild Thing earrings add the perfect statement piece to any fall outfit. Pair it with neutrals, add on the Tigress bracelet and some delicate rings (like the Stackable or Forget Me Knot). These designs roar of confidence and boldness!

Also, you can easily remove the bottom part of the earrings and wear them for a simpler look! Top it off with a black wide-brimmed hat, a pair of chunky-heel booties, and add an unexpected edge with the Ultramodern ring.

The Safari necklace gives you two options to add some tribal flair to your look! Choose either the leopard print, or the gold etched side of the Safari necklace and contrast it against a white blouse half tucked in a pair of dark-washed jeans. Add on the Linear earrings with some Rebel or Forged rings, and throw on a faux-leather jacket over your shoulders to take a walk on the wide side!

IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE OUR FALL COLLECTION! 

One of the questions we asked when designing the fall collection is who is behind the jewelry? Is she a mom, a teacher, a corporate executive, a college student, a Jeweler? What’s her style? Is she bold and fierce and always ready to make a statement? Or more refined and tailored, looking for pieces that ultimately pull her outfit together—or is she one who seeks inspiration in unique or sentimental pieces?

Just as jewelry takes shape in numerous colors, settings, platings—and too many styles to count, so does she. No one person is one-size fits all. All women are created with strength, courage, compassion and warmth, so our goal was to create a collection that celebrates each and every aspect of you—this wonderfully made woman! 

Explore our new Fall Look Book to see for yourself just how amazing this collection really is!

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? We understand!Shop online now!

And if you’re not a Gem Member—talk to your Jeweler about saving 20% on all your faves for a year and qualifying for free shipping!

 EMBRACE YOUR STYLE WITH FAITH BASED JEWELRY! 

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 

Whether we’re preparing dinner for our family, writing a thank you note, or texting a friend some encouragement, we use our hands every day to express our love and gratitude for the people in our lives. And more importantly, we are extensions of God’s hands as “His handiwork.” Through His power, we have the ability to use our hands to serve, love, and bless others! 

As our hands are designed to create beauty, what better reminder than to grace our hands with some beautiful pieces from Premier Designs! These lovely designs will add the perfect touch of simple sophistication, elegance, and polish to your everyday look. 

Classic gold tones pair perfectly with neutrals. Mix one or two statement rings with a sleek gold piece like the Infinite Bliss bracelet, or the More Grace bracelet, for an effortlessly modern look. Add it with a neutral top, a pair of skinnies, and a relaxed boyfriend blazer and you’re all set to conquer the day! 

Dainty crystals are just the complement for the fearless girl with a twinkle in her eye. The Adore ring and At Last bracelet add the perfect touch of glam for the bold and brave trailblazer. 

The perfect accessories for a strong woman with fire in her soul and grace in her heart – ready to love and embrace the world!
