Introducing Poet: An Intriguing New Men’s Collection from Waxing Poetic

poet

Exciting news!  We have just received the new Waxing Poetic Men’s line of jewelry, Poet.  Just in time for Father’s Day, these unique pieces feature necklaces, bracelets, and rings.  Poet is crafted from sterling silver, brass, and quality leathers for a long-lasting keepsake.  Each piece is inspired by wax seals and signet rings and designed with a rugged edge and meaningful symbols.

Necklaces

poet

The necklaces included in the Poet line are beautiful talismans displayed on a sturdy silver chain.  The Poet line uses a lot of oxidized silver to bring a more roughhewn character.  Accented with hammered textures and classic heraldic shapes, we love their unique style.

poet

For the man who likes to travel and explore, the Compass and Explorer necklaces make a meaningful gift.  Emblazoned with the symbol of the compass, they are reminders to be brave and explore beyond the edges of ones comfort zone.  The Coat of Arms necklace, featuring the North Star and an anchor, reminds the adventure-seeker to both follow the stars and stay grounded.

To honor the man who is an ever-steady presence in the family, the star-themed Midsummer Night, Star Shield, and Polaris necklaces are a wonderful choice.  Used for centuries in celestial navigation, the stars are a symbol of eternal constancy.

poet

We also love the Anguis and Peacebringer necklaces.  Symbolic of knowledge, discovery, healing, and transformation, the snake centered on the Anguis necklace celebrates the man who melds a strong mind and dedicated spirit.  We think this piece makes a meaningful gift for a man in the medical profession.  The Peacebringer necklace displays a dove, emblem of peace, accord, and new beginnings.

poet

 

Bracelets, Rings, and Accessories

poet

Beyond the necklace offerings, Poet has a selection of gorgeous leather bracelets and distinctive rings and keychains.  Both leather bracelets are etched with the compass symbol on the clasp.  The brown braided leather Unified Front bracelet is paired with a brass clasp and the black two-strand leather bracelet has a sterling clasp.

poet

The rustic sterling Genesis ring is fashioned after Poesy rings.  Poesy rings were popular during the 15th through the 17th centuries in both England and France as lovers’ gifts, and feature a short inscription.  The Genesis ring reminds us to start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can.

poet

Finally, the coat of arms key fob is a great introduction to the Poet line for the man who is still on the fence about wearing jewelry.  We love the coat of arms symbol- it makes a great key fob for the ladies too!

Bright colors, sparkling stones, and dreams of the beach- that’s what summer is about!  The Alex and Ani summer collection, Serendipity, catches the essence of summer.  With new bangles, beaded bracelets, and Limited Edition sets, there is something for every charmed arm!  Grab your sunnies and check out our review of the new additions below.

New Seaside Symbols and Words are Powerful Bangles

The seaside bangle collections has received a long overdue update with the summer collection!  These bangles are some of the oldest styles still available.  Now with the redesigned symbols, you can continue to collect anew!  We love the new design of the starfish and the mermaid- they are much more detailed than the original designs.

alex and ani summer

The new charms are slightly smaller than the old charms, making them great for layering, and some are adorned with Swarovski crystals for added sparkle!

alex and ani summer

The Words are Powerful collection has also received an update.  A lot of the original bangles have been redesigned with colorful enamel.  There are some great new additions as well!  The Seas the Day and Good Vibes Only bangles sum up our summer mantra!  We also love the new What is For You Will Not Pass You in the shiny rose finish.  Some of these new bangles will be Limited Edition for the summer collection only- get them before they are gone!

The shiny gold finish bangles make a great addition to any summer charmed arm as well.  We love the new Everything Happens for a Reason in bright white with the warm gold.

alex and ani summer

Serendipity Beaded Bracelets

Summer is the season of color, and Alex and Ani has embraced this with their new super-saturated beaded bangles.  With natural elements, such as wood, intermixed with brilliant faceted stones, these bracelets are gorgeous on their own and add a touch of summer to any bangle stack.
alex and ani summer

A lot of the new bracelets are the wrap-style, making them a great choice for any wrist size.  We love the mixture of the bright orange and fuchsia- it reminds us of a summer sunset!  The ocean-inspired emerald green and cobalt blues mixed with the Rafaelian silver finish are beautiful as well.

Looking to add a touch of color but don’t want to go too bright?  The bangles with wood beads strike a great balance between color and neutrals.  Some of the new beaded wraps offer a more muted summer tone as well- and they are only $28!

alex and ani summer

We love the look of stacking different summer beaded bracelets styles together for a beach-ready stack.

Colorful Cuffs

The beaded bracelets are not the only way to add some color to your charmed arm this summer!  Four new Limited Edition enamel cuffs have been released as part of the Alex and Ani summer collection.

alex and ani summer

With pops of color embedded in the Rafaelian gold and silver cuffs, these bracelets add some summer fun to the top of your wrist while your charm bangles fall below!  Each bangle has a different summer-inspired pattern.  We love the look of the blues with greek key and moroccan tile inspired patterns.

alex and ani summer

Giving Back (and Looking Good While Doing it!)

Four new Charity by Design bangles have been released as part of the Alex and Ani summer collection as well.  Some are redesigned old favorites (welcome back Prints of Love!) and others are entirely new bangle styles.

The new Sand Castle bangle represents a fortress of strength and love.  This bangles gives back to SOS Children’s Villages, who work to build families for children in need. The Print of Love Charity by Design bangle has been updated with a heart-shaped Swarovski crystal to add a little extra sparkle.  The new Prints of Love, like the old, gives back to the ASPCA.  The Apple and the Dolphin have moved from the core collection to the Charity by Design collection.

alex and ani summer

Now when you buy your favorite teacher the Apple bangle, not only are you giving her a heartfelt gift, you are giving back to Blessings in a Backpack to provide meals for underprivileged children.  The Dolphin teaches us to have a playful heart- what better way to honor this than to give back to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to rescue and rehabilitate marine animals and provide joy and education to the next generation.

Limited Edition Sets

The Alex and Ani Summer collection also includes some fun new Limited Edition sets.  Sets make a great gift, as they include a Limited Edition bangle and beaded bracelets to form a complete stack.

alex and ani summer

The Limited Edition summer bangle sets include a set of five in shiny gold and a set of three in shiny silver.  The set of five includes an enamel Puffer Fish bangle.  This shiny gold set is accented in cotton candy colors with light pinks, seaglass blues,  and sunny yellows.

alex and ani summer

The set of three includes an enamel sailboat bangle in shades of blue and white.  The sailboat is accompanied by beaded bangles in bright blue and natural wood accents.

In addition to the summer sets, the June Limited Edition set also has an ocean-inspired theme!  This set of two is available in the shiny silver finish and features the Path of Life.  A great symbol for grads, the art infusion Path of Life has been illustrated with a nautical style.

alex and ani summer

The new Alex and Ani summer collection has us ready to set sail on some summer adventures!  Stop by Versant to check out all of the new styles in person.  New to Alex and Ani? Learn more about this great company on our designer page- http://versantjewelry.com/index/our-designers/alex-and-ani/

New Arrivals, Pandora

Pandora Summer Collection Brings a Passport to Paradise

pandora summer

Get your summer vibes ready! The Pandora Summer collection arrives at Versant on June 1st, and it is full of tropical fun.  As compared to past years, these new charms are more colorful and whimsical.  A fan-favorite, the orchid, has received an update with new styles and colors.   There are also some beautiful water-inspired blues and greens that will make the perfect addition to an existing summer bracelet.  See our full review of the new charms and jewelry of this mini collection below!

Bring on the Brights

The bright enamel that we fell in love with in the spring collection is back on a series of button-style charms that celebrate our favorite things about summer.

pandora summer

These new charms honor our favorite parts of summer- fun in the sun, beach vacations, and a summer cocktail!  The celebration of summer fun is reflected in the bright colors and touches of sparkle.

pandora summer

The Summer Fun and Tropical Sunset charms add an extra layer of whimsy with the cute phrases engraved on the side of the charm.

pandora summer

Pink is the New Black

Taking off of the colors of a tropical sunset, the summer collection includes beautiful corals, bright fuchsias, and soft pinks.  Some of our favorite additions are the new orchid designs in both white enamel with light pink stones and radiant orchid enamel.

Not only does the orchid make an appearance as both a dangle and button-style charm, but they appear in a sweet pair of petite stud earrings as well!

For the murano glass lover, three new charms have been added.  The mint and light pink glitter charms show off the softer side of summer with light colors interspersed with sandy threads of gold.  We are in love the new koinobori murano charm inspired by koi fish scales! The gorgeous deep orange of this charm is a great complement to the bright pinks of the rest of the collection.

Shades of the Sea

Everyone loves the sight of the teal and blue tropical ocean waters.  Pandora used these beautiful hues as another focus of their summer collection charms.  With frosty mint, teal green, and bright blues, these pops of color remind us of the summer seas.

Five new clips were released as part of the summer collection- two new cosmic stars clips and three new shining elegance clips with silicone insert.  All of the new clips mix two colors in a mosaic effect to mimic the sparkling waters.

Helpful Hints, Holiday, Information, Limited Edition, New Arrivals, Pandora

Mum’s the Word- Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide is Here!

mother's day gift guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we have hand-selected some special treats to make mom’s day!  Whether she is a sentimental soul or a trendsetter on-the-go, we have searched the world to find the perfect gift for every kind of mom.  Check out all of our selections below in our Mother’s Day gift guide.

 

A few helpful hints before we start- plan to shop before the crowds arrive. The early bird really does get the worm- many of our promotions are the first week in May and the best selection is available when you get there first.  If you are shopping for Pandora or Alex and Ani, take a peek or snap a pic of mom’s collection before you set out.  That way you won’t have to fret over whether you have already given her that mom charm!  And forget about buying wrapping paper and ribbon- gift wrapping is always complimentary at Versant!  Got all that?  Okay then- ready, set …  shop!

Classic Beauty
Let’s Get Personal
The Style Trendsetter

Accessorize that Gift Card!

Classic Beauty

If mom’s sense of style trends towards bright silvers, simple lines, and a touch of sparkle, she appreciates classic beauty.  Giving a gift that will stand the test of time means going back to the classics.  Clean styles in neutral colors are always a good idea.  Mom will get the most wear out of a versatile piece she will be able to fancy up with a little black dress or dress down with a tee and jeans.

 

One of our favorite jewelry lines that creates classic styles with an updated aesthetic is Ti Sento Milano.  Crafted from sterling silver, these pieces are rhodium plated to inhibit tarnishing and keep a bright, beautiful finish.  Studded with sparkling, handset stones, they are great for transitioning from day into night.

mother's day ti sento

Ti Sento Milano Sterling Pendant ($239), Jump Ring ($39), and Chain ($149)

Some of our favorite Ti Sento necklaces feature a round pendant with a pavé CZ or colored stone interior.  We love the beautiful, soft colors of the stones.  Ti Sento uses manmade crystals for their colored stones, ensuring that the color of each piece is consistent.  This is a great feature for buying companion rings or earrings on future occasions!

mother's day

Ti Sento Sterling Necklaces ($149-169)

If mom prefers bracelets and rings to necklaces, Ti Sento has some gorgeous hinged bangles.  Made from heavy sterling silver, they really make a statement!  We love the new spring design with entwined silver, pavé CZ, and mother of pearl strands.

mother's day ti sent

Ti Sento Milano Mother of Pearl Bangle ($449) and Ring ($199), Open Lattice Bangle ($449)

Another great choice for the mom with the classic sense of style is Gabriel & Co’s fashion jewelry.  Gabriel is primarily known for their high-end engagement rings, wedding bands, and fine jewelry.  Their fashion line is constructed from sterling silver with precious and semi-precious stones.  Using sterling allows for the same quality of design and construction at a lower price.

We love their quatrefoil necklace and earrings for mom.  An iconic style with a slightly vintage feel, these pieces are feminine without being too delicate.

mother's day gift guide

Gabriel and Company Sterling and Diamond Necklace ($298) and Earrings ($170)

valentines day gift guide

Gabriel and Company Sterling Silver Necklace

For the mom who likes the classics but wants something unique, Gabriel’s mother of pearl pieces are a great choice.  These rings, earrings, and pendants use mother pearl with a piece of faceted quartz on top to give the piece more dimension.  Although at first glance they look like a neutral grey, the iridescence of the dark mother of pearl picks up pretty pinks, greens, and other colors in the light.

valentines day gift guide

Silver Souviens Drop Earrings with Diamonds, Black Mother of Pearl, $250

Are you looking to really treat mom this Mother’s Day? (She deserves it!) Nothing is as classic or eternal as fine jewelry.  While good fashion jewelry makes a beautiful statement, sterling silver does not have the strength for long-lasting wear the way that gold does.  To give mom a classic piece that she will be able to wear for years and pass on to her children, gold is the way to go.

For a gift that mom can wear every day, stud earrings are an excellent choice.  They have just the right amount of sparkle to be able to worn with any outfit.  Studs are a great gift for new moms because they are a piece of jewelry that small hands can’t easily grab!

mother's day diamonds

White Gold and Pavé Diamond Studs ($775), Rose Gold and Diamond Twist Design Ring ($438), White Gold and Diamond Twist Design Ring ($438), White Gold and Marquise Diamond Ring ($504)

mother's day

White Gold, Sapphire, and Diamond Earrings ($558)

A dainty necklace is also a wonderful gift idea.  These pieces add a touch of delicate sparkle and will never go out of style.  We love the anchor necklace below.  A symbol of stability and hope, the anchor holds fast and steady in both calm and stormy weather.

mother's day diamonds

Rose Gold Medium Round Pavé Diamond Necklace ($495), White Gold Large Round Pavé Diamond Necklace ($695), Rose Gold and Diamond Anchor Necklace ($395)

Let’s Get Personal

We love a gift that you can personalize to customize it to mom’s taste and represent your family and special memories that you share.  Luckily, there are a lot of different types of jewelry that let you combine pieces to make mom a unique and thoughtful gift.

When talking about celebrating and creating unforgettable moments, Pandora is a great choice for someone looking for a wide range of styles.   Not only do they have a vast selection of charms for their bracelets, but their jewelry is diverse, well-made, and affordable.

We love the new floating locket designs that have been introduced this season.  The lockets themselves are a clean, classic design and use sapphire crystal found in high-end watches to provide a scratch-resistant surface.  Sets of three petite charms can be used to personalize the lockets.  We love the infinite love and the birthstone trios! The new heart lockets can be used with an insert plate in the back to add another dimension to the design.

mother's day lockets

Pandora Floating Heart Locket with Chain ($125), Love Large Heart Plate ($25), Infinite Love Petite Charms Set of Three ($40)

mother's day

Medium and Large Floating Lockets ($100, $130), Poetic Blooms Petite Charms ($30), March Birthstone Petite Charms ($40)

For those looking to start a Pandora bracelet or add a new bracelet to their existing collection, the Tree of Hearts gift set is a great way to do so.  This set includes a Limited Edition heart-clasp bangle with the inscription “You are so loved” and the new Tree of Hearts charm.  The gift set is presented in a special light pink Pandora box. Personalize the set by adding spacers in the colors of family members’ birthstones or charms with their initials!

mother's day gift guide

Tree of Hearts Gift Set ($125)

Tree of Hearts Gift Set ($125) with Birthstone Pendants ($40) and Initial Charms ($45)

Pandora’s new stackable birthstone rings are another great option for giving mom a personalized gift.  Make a stack with the birthstone of each family member to create a modern version of a mother’s ring.

mother's day gift guide

Stones of Color Stackable Rings ($45)

Another great option for curating a personalized set for mom is Waxing Poetic jewelry.  This line of charms, necklaces, and bracelets is inspired by vintage wax seals.  Create a mother’s day collection using talismans representing family, meaningful words and phrases, and insignia with initials.

mother's day

Waxing Poetic Necklaces and Charms, starting at $33

An added bonus to shopping the Waxing Poetic collection is the free charm promotion that will be going on from May 1-May 14.  During this time, when you spend $100 in Waxing Poetic jewelry, you will get a Mom Birdsong charm for free.  We love this charm paired with the Bundled with Love nest.  Add symbols representing each family member to really personalize mom’s charms!

mother's day

Waxing Poetic Pearl Necklace w/Charm Catcher and Charms. Mom Birdsong Charm (free with purchase of $100 or more from May 1-14) on far right.

For the mom with a more casual style, Alex and Ani is a fun way to create a stack of bracelets to represent her family and what makes her stand out.  This Mother’s Day, Alex and Ani has released several limited edition sets.  These bangle and beaded styles only available for a limited time as part of each set.  The I Love You Mom set of five and Mom set of three are great starter sets for a mom just beginning her Alex and Ani collection.

 

We particularly love the Infinite Connection set.  With one bangle for mom and one bangle for daughter, it reminds us of the classic “give one, keep one” friendship sets.  Add a beaded bangle in a birthstone color to personalize mom’s portion of the set!

mother's day

I Love You Mom Set of Five ($128), Infinite Connection Set of Two ($48), Mom Set of Three ($98)

Another way to create a personalized bracelet collection is with the updated birthstone bangles.  These bangles are now available in the matte gold and silver finish and adorned with a teardrop shaped Swarovski crystal.  Mix birthstones bangles, colored beaded bracelets, and initials for mom and her crew to create a varied stack.

mother's day

Alex and Ani Color Code w/Swarovski Crystal ($32)

Is mom the superhero of your family? Add one of the new Wonder Woman bangles or cuffs to her Mother’s Day stack!  These new additions to the Alex and Ani world feature the iconic Wonder Woman logo and symbolize strength and the fight for love and justice.

mother's day

Wonder Woman Logo Bangle ($38), Cuff ($48), Bangle ($32)

The Trendsetter Mom

Is mom a style trendsetter who loves to be on the cutting edge of what is new and fashionable?  Look for pieces that use different metals in innovative ways and go out of their way to make a statement.  Bolder earrings in versatile designs, necklaces that are longer or shorter (think chokers!), and stacks of fun bangles are a great way to gift the trendsetter mom.

We love Julie Vos jewelry for a striking design in warm gold with pops of bold color.  Her long layering necklaces and stackable bracelets have been very popular on the fashion blogs, and for good reason.  With styles inspired by nature, architecture, and byzantine motifs, these pieces bridge the gap between classic and trendy.  Julie Vos’ jewelry is constructed from 24K gold over brass, giving it a wonderful warm tone.

mother's day

Julie Vos Gigi Cuff ($85) and Siena Drop Earrings ($138)

For the beach-loving mom that loves the summer sun, choose pieces where watery blues or bright turquoise are set against gold.

mother's day

Julie Vos Turquoise Pendant and Chain ($325), Stud Earrings ($85), and Bangles (starting at $45)

Many of Julie Vos’ long necklaces, like the bee below, include a special jump ring so that they can be doubled and worn at a shorter length.

mother's day julie vos

Julie Vos Bee Pendant with Chain ($168)

Another great brand for the trendsetter mom is Freida Rothman.  Based in New York, they combine a metropolitan style with a fun use of mixed metals and stone settings. For a brighter style, their yellow gold plated pieces set with amazonite are gorgeous.  For a versatile piece, we love their pavé studs with amazonite ear jackets.  Wear them as plaint studs without the jackets, or dress it up with a dangling pop of color!

mother's day

Freida Rothman Amazonite Round Drop Earrings ($160), Necklaces ($185, $135, $150), Earrings with Jackets ($150)

For an edgier style, check out Freida Rothman’s mixed metal pieces.  Using yellow gold plating and oxidized sterling silver gives a great contrast to these fashionable pieces.  Pair them with some labradorite jewelry to complement the color combination.

mother's day freida

Freida Rothman Bangles ($140-385)

Our store exclusive line, WinterLemon, also has some beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that are well-suited for the fashionable mom.  Handmade locally, they use a mix of cutting edge shapes and metals with semi-precious gemstones. As with Freida Rothman’s jewelry, the mix of yellow gold and oxidized silver takes a classic design and gives it a more contemporary edge.

mother's day

WinterLemon Drop Gold Vermeil Drop Earrings ($72), Amazonite Drop Earrings ($44), Labradorite Drop Earrings ($89)

For those that would like a statement piece without a heavy look, we love WinterLemon’s necklaces crafted from a delicate chain, freshwater pearls, and faceted gemstones.

mother's day winter lemon

WinterLemon Pearl and Gemstone Statement Necklace ($199)

Another way to make a statement without being too bulky is to use an unconventional necklace length or a adding bright colored stones set without a large amount of metal.  We love this necklace with a slice of bright green chalcedony wrapped in a fine outline of gold vermeil.

mother's day winter lemon

WinterLemon Choker ($99) and Green Chalcedony and Lapis Necklace ($80)

Sweet and Sentimental

Is mom known for being softhearted and turns to mush over a gift with a story behind it?  For the sentimental mom, we love pieces that have a romantic or nostalgic undertone.

Both beautiful and meaningful, Thortiuda pendants are a terrific gift for the sentimental mom.  Thortiuda, meaning “angel” in Thai, are also known as angel whisperers.  Each pendant cage encloses a colored chime.  The delicate chime is meant to call our guardian angels to our side, so that they can protect us from all dangers.

mother's day

Thortiuda Large Pendant w/CZ Accents- Rose Gold Plated ($239) and Sterling Silver ($209), chain separate

Thortiuda is also the perfect gift for a mom-to-be celebrating her first mother’s day.  The idea of the angel whisperer chime has been present across many cultures.  It was worn during pregnancy to protect expectant mothers and their babies. After birth, it could be kept by the mother, or be given to the newborn baby to protect it in its sleep, to soothe it with the reassuring and familiar gentle chime, and to protect it by calling the invisible presence of its guardian angel.

mother's day thortiuda

Medium Thortiuda Sterling Pendant ($105)

mother's day thortiuda

Large Rose Gold Plated Thortiuda Pendant w/CZ Accents ($239)

Each chime insert color has an individual meaning and sound.  On the fashion side, the interchangeable orbs allow the wearer to change the look of the necklace for different seasons and outfits.

mother's day thortiuda

Thortiuda Chimes ($18-59)

Another wonderful way to surprise mom with a sentimental gift this Mother’s Day is through the Pandora Essence collection.  Similar to the traditional Pandora charm bracelet, these pieces are personalized by choosing your bracelet and charms separately.  However, unlike the Moments bracelet, the Essence charms celebrate different values and attributes of the people we love.  Each charm is designed to reflect a chosen trait, such as loyalty or dedication, and this trait is engraved onto the side of the charm.

mother's day pandora essence

Pandora Essence Bracelet and Bangle ($65) with charms ($65-190)

 

valentines day gift guide

Pandora Essence sterling bangle, $60, Compassion, $65, and Friendship, $50

Pandora Essence is wonderful for moms just starting a charm bracelet because the charms themselves have silicon in the interior of the charm that allows the charm to stay in place on the bracelet.  This lets mom style the bracelet by grouping charms together or separating them.  Because the charms stay in place, the bracelet never looks empty or unfinished.

valentines day gift guide

Pandora Essence bracelet, $60, Positivity, $40, Courage, $50, Patience, $50, Strength, $50

For moms with a distinct romantic side, we love jewelry accented with rose gold.  The warm pink tones of rose gold make it a stand-out metal for the dreamy mom.  Used widely in the Victorian era, it also has a touch of vintage fun that appeals to the nostalgic mom.

Pandora has recently expanded their collection to Pandora Rose.  These pieces are made from a proprietary blend of copper and silver at the core with a layer of 14K rose gold plating on top.  We love the pieces with some sparkle- the stones stand out so brightly against the rose!  They have designed some of our favorite rings in Pandora Rose as well.  Add a rose accent to a sterling stack, or create an all rose collection!

pandora rose

Pandora Rose Dainty Bow ($75) and Twist of Fate ($150) rings, Pandora Rose Clasp Bangle ($80) with Loving Pandora Clip ($55), Pavé Lights ($85), and Galaxy ($70) charms

To gift mom a full set in Pandora Rose, we love the Timeless Elegance design.  This classic style is given a twist with the warm rose gold hue and is available as stud earrings, ring, and pendant.

pandora rose

Timeless Elegance Earrings ($100), Ring ($95), Pendant ($75), and chain ($100) in Pandora Rose

Many of our WinterLemon pieces are also available with rose gold plated accents.  We love the mix of rose gold with the soft grey of labradorite- the iridescence in the labradorite gemstone picks up the warm pinks of the rose.  We love the sweet bee necklace below as a dainty piece to honor the queen bee of the family!

mother's day

WinterLemon Rose Gold Plated and Labradorite Bee ($69) and Teardrop Accented Necklaces ($69), Rose Gold Accented Picture Jasper Stretch Bracelet ($24)

For a more classic look in rose gold, Elle Jewelry’s rose gold plated sterling pieces feature iconic shapes updated in the rose gold metal.  The fleur earrings and necklace are a beautiful romantic style.  For a more modern feel, we love the sparkling bar necklace that mixes rose gold with shiny silver.

Elle Jewelry Fleur Necklace ($119) and Earrings ($99), Sparkling Bar Necklace ($89)

Another way to treat the sentimental mom this Mother’s Day is to feather her nest with some accents that reflect the love of her family.  Upstairs in Haven, our locally-made burlap canvases feature a family tree and nostalgic phrases shared between mother and child.

mother's day pictures

Burlap Canvas Family Tree ($36), I Love You to the Moon and Back ($28), and You are My Sunshine ($28) Signs

Burlap Canvas Live Laugh Love ($28), Bee Free ($28), and Be Free Arrow ($36) Signs

We also love our Love You to the Moon and Back and This is my Happy Place pillows as a way to brighten up mom’s home with expressions of love.

I Love You to the Moon and Back ($34.99) and This is My Happy Place ($43.99) Upcycled Military Tarp Pillow

Accessorize that Gift Card!

Everyone loves gift cards- they are versatile and let mom pick something you know she will like.  But as fun as using a gift card is, opening a gift card on Mother’s Day is not very exciting. Luckily, there are some great creative ways to jazz up that gift with some small accessories that give a hint of the gift card being received!

 

Is mom a coffee lover?  These new mugs from Chase and Wonder are a great way to accessorize a gift certificate to Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or your local coffee shop.  When the gift card is spent, she will still think of you every time she has a cup.

mother's day mugs

Chase and Wonder Mugs ($18)

For the mom that loves to travel, these travel bags and accessories made from upcycled military tarps are a great way to surprise mom with a fun trip.  The adorable makeup are also a great way to present a gift card to Sephora or Ulta!

If mom loves the spa or getting a massage, add to her relaxation with these luxurious bath and body products from Blithe and Bonny.  Hand-crafted in the USA, they smell amazing and they are beautifully presented.  In store we have the Cedar & Sage, Grapefruit, and Herbes de Provence Scents available.

The Pandora Mother’s Day Collection Has Arrived!

Are you ready to celebrate mom with some sparkle?  The Pandora Mother’s Day collection has arrived at Versant!  This collection adds some great new family charms and beautiful new jewelry options.  Check out our overview of the new pieces below!

Floating Locket Collection

The Pandora Floating Locket and Petite Charms have been a very popular new addition.  Made from sterling silver and sapphire crystal used in high-end watches, they are both high quality and high fashion.  We are excited that they have expanded their locket offerings with the Mother’s Day collection!

New Pandora Mother’s Day Floating Lockets and Inserts

The Mother’s Day collection has seen the addition of two new locket styles and some fun new concepts for filling them.  A medium sized heart locket necklace can display a set of three petite charms and a small heart locket can display a single charm.  The smaller locket can be worn on a chain or on the bracelet.  The smaller locket comes filled with a single heart charm that can be interchanged with any of the petite charms to change the look of the locket.

In addition to the new lockets, Pandora has released plate inserts that fill the back of the locket.  These inserts can be worn by themselves for a simple statement or layered with petite charms.  We love the new white enamel insert with “love” written across the heart!  The enamel plate and a plain silver plate are available for the medium heart locket.  A small enamel plate is available for the small heart locket.  The small plate can also be used in the larger locket as a floating charm!

Lastly, a new set of Petite Charms, Infinite Love, was released with this collection as well.  These charms feature a mini Sparkling Love Knot, a sparkling infinite symbol, and a white enamel heart.

Mother’s Day Charms

As always, the Mother’s Day collection includes a new assortment of family and love related charms to add another layer of love to mom’s bracelet.  This years charms are themed around celebrating relationships and accented with gold and pearls.

Tree of Hearts, Luminous Love Knot, Interlocked Hearts, and Heart of Romance Charms

The new family tree charm, Tree of Hearts, is the first family tree charm that is not a dangling style.  With its pretty iridescent white enamel and gold heart, it is a beautiful way to honor the bonds between family members.   The Interlocked Hearts and Heart of Romance charms also feature a touch of gold and are a great way to bring some warmth to a black and white bracelet.

 

The Luminous Love Knot charm is designed to mirror the Sparkling Love Knot with the addition of pearls.  Part of a collection that includes a pendant, earrings, and necklace, this charm is a great gift for the mom who loves classic elegance.

The Mother & Son Bond heart charm is adorned with “Mother” on one side and “Son” on the other.  A great gift to celebrate the mom of boys, it shows how a mother and son are two parts of the same heart.  Similarly, the Mother and Daughter hearts show the special bond between mother and daughter.  In this set, mom gets to keep one half of the heart and daughter gets to wear the other!

Tribute to Mom and Love for Mother are great choices for a mother-themed bracelet.  These Mother’s Day new releases are perfect for the mom who collects a special mother charm every year on this holiday.

pandora mother's day

The Pandora Mother’s Day collection this year includes some charms for new moms as well.  The new baby stroller is more detailed than past designs and has a crystal heart adorning the side.  The Baby Treasures dangle includes a small pacifier, teddy bear, and white enamel heart and is a great gift for any mom-to-be.

The Precious Heart Charm is one of two Limited Edition charms to be released this year.  This charm will only be available during the Mother’s Day season!  The second Limited Edition charm will be released with the gift sets on April 13th.

There are also some new releases in the love theme that are a wonderful gift from a husband to a wife.  The Family and Love clip features a smooth background with a golden heart center.  The Infinite Love spacers add some meaningful sparkle on either side of a dangling charm or colorful murano.  For the romantic, the My Wife Always locket charm has a vintage looking design with “my wife always” engraved on the interior.  Lastly, the Love Always safety chain expresses a powerful sentiment while keeping mom’s treasures safe!

The last charm additions with the Pandora Mother’s Day release celebrate hobbies and occasions.  The sparkling dress pairs well with the stiletto and martini glass to represent a gal that enjoys a night on the town.  The running shoe is a good choice for a mom on-the-go or an avid runner.  Lastly, the newly designed graduation cap is tailor-made for the proud graduate.  We love the hearts on the charm’s bale!

New Jewelry Additions

We love the new jewelry additions that were released this year.  There are a ton of great new rings in some innovative styles!

pandora mother's day

Luminous Love Knot

The Luminous Love Knot collection, like the Sparkling Love Knot, includes a pendant, ring, and stud earring design.  Accented with a small pearl, they are a great update to a current favorite.

pandora mother's day

On the ring side, the new pearl wrap ring is a stunner!  We also love the halo design ring to make a statement without feeling too weighty.  The double ended heart ring, with one side in shiny silver and the other in white enamel, is very sweet and petite.

pandora mother's day

To make a bolder statement, the new circle and heart signet rings add a new twist to a tried-and-true design.  This is a very on-trend style.  Get them engraved with an initial to really make it personal!

pandora mother's day

The Sparkling Strand bracelet, a staff favorite, got a new look with some pink crystals.  This bracelet is dainty, adjustable, and extraordinarily sparkly.  At $50, it’s a steal!

The last jewelry additions include some beautiful and innovative pearl pieces.  A long pearl-accented chain necklace is adjustable using a small bead with a silicon stopper.  We love the double-sided pearl earrings.  Not only are they reversible, they offer an amazing profile view!  The Luminous Droplets earrings and pendant are perfect for the simple girl who likes an understated look.

Holiday, Limited Edition, New Arrivals

The 2017 Alex and Ani Mother’s Day Collection Arrives

alex and ani mother's day

The new Alex and Ani Mother’s Day collection has arrived at Versant!  There are a lot of beautiful Limited Edition sets and bangles that have come with this collection.  Like last year’s Mother’s Day collection, these pieces are only available for a short period of time.  Make sure to stop by and pick one up for mom before they are gone!

 

Alex and Ani describes the new collection as a representation of what it means to love infinitely.  The connection between mother and child knows no bounds- it strengthens, depends, and evolves over time.  Keep reading for some of the highlights of the new collection below.

Multi-Bracelet Sets

We love the new multi-bracelet sets as a way to give mom a curated group meant to be worn together.  Sets are also a fun way to start an Alex and Ani collection for someone, as it gives them both bangle and beaded styles.

The Color Infusion Mom set of three ($98) features a beautiful heart with “mom” inscribed in the enamel.  This bangle is accompanied by two beaded bracelets that complement the enamel of the heart bangle.  The Color Infusion Mom set is available in shiny silver with a periwinkle enamel and Shiny Gold with a teal enamel.  The Color Infusion Mom design is available as an expandable necklace as well!

The “I Love You Mom” Set of Five ($128) features a Limited Edition bangle with “I Love You Mom” inscribed around an iridescent enamel heart.  This bangle is accompanied by four beaded bracelets in soft pinks and iridescent whites.  The I Love You Mom set is available in the Rafaelian Silver and Gold finishes.

alex and ani mother's day

The Infinite Connection Set of Two ($48) is a meaningful way to celebrate the connection between a mother and a daughter. Mothers and daughters share a profound and infinite connection. Through the laughs, tears, advice, and growing pains, the bond remains unbreakable.  The Infinite Connection set is available in the Rafaelian Silver and Gold finishes.

New Bangles

In addition to the curated sets, Alex and Ani has included some new bangle styles in the Mother’s Day collection.

 

The Limited Edition Because I Love You ($38) features a bright enamel background on a shiny finish.  This bangle is adorned with a heart-shaped Swarovski crystal to add a little sparkle to mom’s stack.

Another exciting new addition that we are hoping becomes a permanent part of the collection is the new bridal collection ($34).  Celebrating special relationships with the bride, these bangles include Mother of the Bride, Maid of Honor, and Bridesmaid.   Available in both Rafaelian Silver and Gold, each bangle has a Swarovski crystal as the centerpiece. These bangles would be a great way to ask your special gals to be a part of your bridal party!

Charity by Design Additions

The Alex and Ani Mother’s Day collection has also seen some new additions to the Charity by Design bangles.

 

The whimsical Fairy bangle ($38) celebrates dreams coming true and the power of belief.  20% of the purchase price will go to support Give Kids the World Village.  This charity creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses.

alex and ani mother's day

The new Baby Block bangle ($28) symbolizes building strong foundations and is a great way to celebrate a new member of the family.  20% of the purchase price for this bangle will support March of Dimes.  March of Dimes helps moms have full-term pregnancies and researches the problems of premature births and birth defects to save babies’ lives.

alex and ani mother's day

The newly redesigned Living Water bangle encases a bright blue drop of water in a heart.  Symbolizing community and love, it reminds us that we must work together to quench the thirst of the world.  20% of the purchase price of this bracelet will go to Living Water International.  This charity works to provide clean, safe drinking water throughout the world.

 

We love all of the new designs Alex and Ani added in their Mother’s Day Collection.  We think that mom will love them as well!  Stop by Versant to see these new additions in person.  These pieces are all limited in quantity- give us a call if you would like us to hold something for you: http://versantjewelry.com/index/contact-us/

Helpful Hints, New Arrivals, Pandora

The Pandora Care Kit has Arrived- Unpacking the Box!

pandora care kit

The new Pandora Care Kits have arrived at Versant!  This care kit has been developed especially for PANDORA jewelry pieces to preserve the beauty of your collection.  At only $15, they are a great value and make it easy to keep your treasures sparkling.  Read more below as we unpack the contents of the new kit.

pandora care kit

Each care kit comes packaged in a sturdy Pandora box with care instructions included in a booklet stored in the top of the lid.  The kit items are stored in two layers.

Top Layer

The first layer of the kit includes a soft brush and clasp opener.

care kit brush

Soft Brush

The soft brush is ideal for thoroughly cleaning your Pandora jewelry.  The bristles are soft enough not to scratch the surface of the soft silver.  Using a brush to clean your detailed charms and other jewelry pieces helps to get into the nooks and crannies where dirt can be trapped.  Dirt in the settings of stones can dull the shine of your gems.  A regular cleaning can keep them sparkling!

clasp opener care kit

Sterling Clasp Opener

The sterling clasp opener is an essential for opening Pandora clips and bracelets.  Not only does it save time in opening the sturdy Pandora clasp, it saves your nails as well!  Fashioned in the shape of the signature Pandora heart, it is fun as well as functional.  The key ring lets you keep it handy as a stylish keychain or purse accessory.

Bottom Layer

The bottom layer includes two storage pouches and two polishing cloths.

pouch care kit

Anti-Tarnish Pouch for Sterling Pieces

The black storage pouch is especially formulated for Pandora sterling pieces.  The pouch is infused with anti-tarnish agents that will delay the tarnishing of sterling jewelry.  Storing your silver pieces in the soft pouch will help keep your jewelry from getting scratched.

pouch care kit

Pandora Rose Storage Pouch

The white storage pouch is meant for your Pandora Rose™ metal blend pieces.  You can also use the white pouch for any plated jewelry.  The white pouch does not include the anti-tarnish agent with which the black pouch is infused.

polishing cloths care kit

Polishing Cloths

The black and white polishing cloths are meant for maintaining the shine of your jewelry.  The black cloth is formulated for your sterling and gold Pandora pieces and is infused with silver cleaning agents.  These cleaning agents will remove light tarnishing and restore the sparkle to your jewelry.

 

The white cloth is uniquely suited for the new Pandora Rose™ blend pieces.  Because Pandora Rose™ includes a layer of rose gold plating on top of the innovative metal blend beneath, it is important to try and maintain this top layer as long as possible.  This means that Pandora Rose™ should not be polished with a cleaning agent, as it will wear away the plating more quickly.

pandora care kit

We are so excited about the new kits Pandora has created to help us keep our jewelry in top shape!  As always, remember to remove your jewelry before sleeping, showering, swimming, and exercising.  Never spray chemicals or apply hand sanitizers or lotions directly on your jewelry.  Your jewelry should be the last piece you put on before leaving the house to help maintain its life and loveliness.

New Arrivals

Enamel and Sparkle and Floral, Oh My! Pandora Spring Has Arrived.

It’s that time of year when the spring arrivals start rolling in!  The Pandora Spring collection has just hit the cases and we are in love.  Check out our highlights and make sure to stop by and see these stunning pieces in person.

Brights are the New Blackwordpress stats

One of the outstanding themes of this year’s collection is the celebration of color.  Accents of bright enamel abound in the new stackable rings and bangle bracelets.  These saturated tones are beautifully offset with sparkling stones to make these pieces perfect to take from casual afternoons to a night on the town.

 

The new Radiant Droplet charms are another great way to add some vibrant color to your bracelet.  The three faceted stones adorning each charm reflect the light like sunshine off of the water.

Radiant Droplet Charms, Radiant Hearts of Pandora Rings

We are obsessed with the new colorful bangles- they make a gorgeous stack when alternating neutral and colorful options. Even better, the hinged design of the bangles makes them the perfect fit!

Radiant Hearts of Pandora Bangles

Spring has brought a huge assortment of color to the inserts available for the Pandora Floating Locket.  In line with their new Stones of Color birthstone collection, new sets of three mini charms are available for each birthstone.  Each set includes a birthstone mini with cutout heart, a smooth silver heart, and a pavé stud. Choose the birthstone for yourself or a loved one; alternatively, pick a set with your favorite color to add a bright accent to your spring ensembles!

Pandora Locket Birthstone Sets

Cultivate Your Garden

As always, the Pandora spring additions include a new set of floral pieces to celebrate the joy of the season.  This year’s pieces are centered around the new Magnolia design and the updated Dazzling Daisies.

 

We love the use of enamel in the Magnolia design.  A soft ombré effect is used, transitioning from a soft pink at the middle to a warm white at the edges.  A pink CZ to adds a touch of sparkle to the center of the flower.

New Magnolia Blossom Charms

We particularly love the new button-style and dangling Magnolia charms.  Not only do they look great on your bracelet, but add a chain and they make a beautiful necklace as well!  The Magnolia collection is rounded out by fun stud earrings and a sweet ring showing a single blossom.

Magnolia Blossom Collection

The Dazzling Daisies collection has been updated with some sparkling new charms and innovative jewelry styles.  The new Dazzling Daisies charm has a small white enamel daisy and, like the Magnolia charms, looks great on a chain as well as on your bracelet.  An adjustable-length Y-style necklace shows off the sparkling blooms with an on-trend shape.

Dazzling Daisy Jewelry

The new Dazzling Daisy ear climbers are a great alternative from the usual studs accompanying new collections.  The open-style daisy ring is another new shape making its debut.  Looking for a more classic shape? This style is available in the Timeless Elegance collection as well!

Miscellaneous New Charms

Apart from the floral and colorful new additions, a variety of gold-accented and themed charms have also been added.  The new Good Luck charm arrives just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!  We love the new Celebration pieces, including a new Birthday Cake, Thank-You heart, and Just Married charm.

A new Pandora Signature Safety Chain and Clip have also been added.  Both pieces have rubber inserts installed, making them perfect for the bangle or the new smooth bracelet.

Jewelry Odds and Ends

In addition to the themed collections, some standalone jewelry pieces have been introduced this spring.  Continuing with their innovative shapes and designs, the two piece Abstract Elegance earrings are a fun new addition to Pandora’s ever-expanding earring line.  These earrings can be worn with or without the back jacket.  Use the jacket with a different stud to give an old pair of earrings a new look!  The Interlinked Circles studs are a great mixed-metal addition that mirrors a new charm design introduced with the collection.

pandora spring earrings

Pandora’s rings have seen the addition of two new droplets designs in blush pink and clear crystal.  Two new stacking bands have also been introduced- one in shining silver with daisies and one with sparkling CZs.  Our favorite ring addition of the season is the Swirling Symmetry ring, which has three interlocked rings.  This is a gorgeous piece in person- an instant classic!

In addition to the Birthstone inserts, the Floating Locket has been updated with a new Poetic Blooms insert.  These three mini charms reflect the soft pink and white enamels and sparkling daisies featured throughout the Spring collection.
