As we leave the spookiest month of the year behind, it’s time to usher in the most full months of the year: the holiday season. The coming months and the end of the year bring so much to celebrate. A little bit of preparation will help you get in the right mindset to soak in every moment.
Mind: An Attitude of Gratitude
November and December are filled with so much joy, love, family and generosity — but with the added festivities it’s easy to feel rushed, tired and stretched-thin emotionally and spiritually (and, let’s face it, sometimes financially, too). That’s why it’s so important to prepare yourself for what’s coming — not just by writing out extensive to-do lists, but by getting yourself to an outlook of appreciation. A grateful mindset will help you fully enjoy the most festive season.
Our Thanksgiving Collection is a limited-edition set of bangles that celebrates the season, but in a specific way that speaks that gratitude into being and also has some fun. After all, if you’re not laughing your way through the holiday, you’re not doing it right.
The “Gourd-geous” charm bangle is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the flavor of the season and the feeling we should all carry with ourselves.
The “Pawtumn” charm bangle celebrates cozy evenings at home with your four-legged family.
The “Pumpkin Spice Everything” charm bangle is an appreciation of the signature flavor of the season.
And finally, the “Gobble ‘til You Wobble” charm bangle is a fun way to remember to savor the most delicious day of the year.
Body: Old is New Again with Updated Pearl Styles
Some people might look at pearls as outdated, but, well, those people can take their bangles and go home. Pearls are classic for a reason: the luminous little orbs are a natural glow-up that add light and brilliance to your look, as though you’re wearing moonlight. But that doesn’t mean that pearls can’t benefit from a makeover every now and again.
This season’s new pearl styles are totally classic in the most modern way. Our new pearl beaded bangles combine pearl beads in hues like ice blue, sapphire blue, ruby, taupe and emerald green and combine them with textured metal beads for a uniquely textured look that’s easy to stack, wear alone, or combine with meaningful symbols that represent all the positive memories you associate with pearls and all the people you love who wear (or wore) them.
Spirit: Cultivate Time and Space for Yourself through the Busiest Time of the Year
While the holidays are a time to celebrate and to fill your lives with as much love and joy as possible, they bring mixed emotions, especially if you’re the one in charge of creating the festivities for your family, or if you’re grieving the loss of loved ones whom you wish could be there to celebrate, too.
That’s why it’s so important to take time this time of year. Make sure to do the things you love and fulfill your annual traditions, yes, but also take time to reflect and process all of the emotions that come up at the holidays.
The Language of Flowers Collection is especially fitting for the holidays for a lot of reasons. They’re beautiful floral charms that are inspired by the jewelry you might have seen in your grandmother’s jewelry box. But they use Victorian-inspired meanings the same way people would use flowers to communicate in the Victorian era. You can give someone a rose for love or an iris for friendship, or wear a buttercup to appreciate the small moments or a delphinium to honor someone who has passed, and to remember that every day is a precious gift.
