The Mother’s Day Top Ten- Gifts that Will Make Mom Shine

Mother’s Day is almost here! Having a hard time finding the perfect gift for mom? Our Mother’s Day top ten list will make this year’s shopping easy! Read on to find out our favorite picks to make mom’s day shine ‚ú®

Keep It Simple

Does mom love a minimal look that adds a touch of sparkle but doesn’t overpower? A simple style with a unique twist is the way to go!

We love the new Pandora Reflexions collection for its modern, lightweight feel and minimalist geometric clips. A classic link bracelet is also a great everyday look for mom!

Left: Pandora Reflexions, bracelets starting at $65 and clips starting at $35
Right: Pandora Shimmering Wish bangle ($115), Ti Sento Milano Sparkling Link Chain Bracelet ($279)

The Best Kind of Rose

Roses are beautiful for a day or two, but rose gold lasts forever! We love the romantic tone of rose gold jewelry. Softer than yellow gold and less traditional than silver, rose gold is a perfect complement to mom’s warmhearted personality.

For the budget-conscious, Pandora makes a wide variety of rose-gold toned pieces in their Pandora Rose collection. For a gift that will last a lifetime, check out our rose gold and diamond pieces in our Fine Jewelry collection!

Left: WinterLemon Amaris Rose Gold Vermeil Moon Necklace ($89), Vega Rose Gold Vermeil Star Necklace
Right: Pandora Rose Sparkling Elegance Ring ($90), Radiant Teardrop Ring ($125), Sparkling Elegance Earrings ($65)

Make it Mean Something

For those moms that enjoy the thought behind the gift, a meaningful symbol that expresses your relationship will help show her that you took the time to choose something special to both of you.

A simple white gold and diamond necklace with a meaningful symbol is a beautiful way to celebrate what mom means to you. We also love our Pyrrha talisman necklaces- each necklace is cast using designs from Victorian wax seals and comes with an accompanying meaning card. We love the New Beginnings talisman for the new mom!

Left: White Gold & Diamond Anchor ($425), Starburst ($539), and Infinity ($385) Necklaces
Right: Pyrrha New Beginnings Talisman ($154)

For the mom who loves Game of Thrones, the My Treasure Dragon talisman is a perfect fit!

Pyrrha Guardian Angel ($194) and My Treasure ($183) Talismans

Stick to the Classics

It is hard to go wrong with a classic style! The classics stand the test of time and look good for any occasion.

We love Gabriel New York’s sterling silver fashion pieces as our go-to classic styles. Handmade with beautiful hammered textures and an eye for detail, these pieces really stand out for their quality and style.

Left: White Agate Halo Necklace ($290)
Right: Quatrefoil ($149), Nested Teardrop ($265), and Scroll Heart ($175) Necklaces

We also love the multi-cable bracelets from our Bella Cavo collection. These silver and two-tone textured cable pieces have a classic silhouette with a modern edge!

Left: Sparkling Statement Basketweave ($179.95), Single Cable Leaf ($69.95), and Starry Sky Multi-Cable ($199.95) Cuffs
Right: Sparkling Wide Line Rose Single Cable Cuff ($69.95), Bubble Bangle ($149), and Five Cable Vertical Bar Station Cuff ($179.97)

For the Golden Girl

Does mom love the bright glow of gold jewelry? (We know we do!) Golden styles are popping up everywhere, and we have the perfect picks to bring this fashion trend into mom’s accessory wardrobe.

The newly released Pandora Shine 18k gold plated collection as made their gold pieces more accessible for the cost-conscious shopper. We love the pineapple charm for summer! Julie Vos jewelry is also a great way to add a touch of gold without splurging for a solid 14k or 18k piece.

Left: Pandora Open Bangle ($80) styled with Blue Ripples ($55), Shine Love Pod Spacer ($50), Aqua Enchantment ($45) and Shine Golden Pineapple ($90)
Right: Julie Vos Bee Pendant ($168)

For a piece that mom will cherish for years to come, a 14 or 18k and diamond piece in a classic style will let mom bring a special elegance to her everyday attire.

Left: Five Oval Station Necklace with Diamonds ($1850)
Right: Julie Vos Stackable Bangles, starting at $75

Because She is Your Guiding Light

Mom has a special role in our lives- she gently guides us and lights our way. The compass, star, and moon symbols are all beautiful ways to show mom that you appreciate the care she takes in making sure you are able to navigate your own path towards happiness.

Left: Compass Rose Sapphire Necklace ($220) and Large Compass Pendant ($159, chain not included)
Right: Indra Star Diamond Necklace ($149), Asteria Celestial Necklace ($199), Selene Star and Moon Necklace ($175), Theia Crescent Moon Necklace ($105)

We especially love this sweet North Star ring with a single diamond at the center!

Left: North Star Ring ($165)
Right: Deva Crescent Moon Stud Earrings ($80), Tara Labradorite Starburst Medallion Necklace ($575), Oxidized Star of Bethlehem Earrings ($120)

For the Natural Beauty

For the mom who loves a natural look, pieces that are inspired by natural shapes or have raw gemstones are a great match for her more earthy style.

Left: Freida Rothman Leaflet Bar necklace ($195)
Right: WinterLemon Raw Sapphire Earrings (starting at $69)

We love the natural shapes of Stephanie Kantis’ statement pieces. A lot of her jewelry includes beautiful natural gemstones as well, like these gorgeous rutilated quartz honeycomb inspired drop earrings!

Stephanie Kantis Scroll Flower Pendant ($599), Chantilly Hexagon Earrings ($140), and Hex Drop Gemstone Earrings ($345)

For the luxe-level gift, we love the natural look of colored diamonds. Sethi Couture makes beautiful heirloom pieces with green, chocolate, and burnt orange diamonds.

Thortiuda Silver Pendant w/CZs ($239), Colored Orbs (starting at $18)

Show Her She’s One-of-a-Kind

Does mom love unique finds instead of mass-produced pieces. An Estate piece is a great way to give mom a one-of-a-kind piece that has its own special story! We love imagining the lives that our Estate pieces have lived before and adding good memories to their journeys. Estate pieces are also a great way to get a quality piece of 14k jewelry for an affordable price!

Left: 14k Opal Pendant ($175), 14k Locket ($225), 14k Lavalier Pendant ($275)
Right: 14k White Gold Channel Set Diamond Ring ($385), 14k White Gold Diamond Cluster Ring ($899)

Get Sentimental (the Modern Way!)

Want to give mom a gift that lets her hold her memories close but hate the hassle of having to get the perfect photo formatted and printed? Meet Brighton’s new Love Lockets line! Pick out your locket and we will print a photo from your phone and install it inside the locket while you wait!

The Love Lockets have many beautiful styles- big and small, long length or short, bright silver or sparkling stones- there is a locket for every style mom!

Tied Together- Introducing the 2019 Pandora Mother’s Day Collection

The 2019 Pandora Mother’s Day collection has arrived, and it is filled with beautiful knot motifs, fun new celebration beads, and a whole new family of charms to love! Read on for our full review of the new pieces below.

Tree of Life ($60) and Knotted Heart ($115) bracelets

The Pandora Mother’s Day mini-collection includes new pieces in both the jewelry and charm selections.

The collection focuses on three main themes, Knotted Hearts, the Tree of Life, and the traditional family and mom-related charms associated with Mother’s Day.

These themes extend to the three new bracelets that are part of this collection. We particularly love the Knotted Heart toggle bracelet- what a beautiful way to show mom how much you appreciate the bond between you!

Knotted Heart bracelet ($115), Limited Edition True Uniqueness Bangle ($90), and Tree of Life Adjustable Bracelet ($60)

This year’s collection also adds some adorable new members to the Pandora charm family! In addition to the new boy and girl, an older man and woman and a group of new pets have been released.

New Dog and Cat Charms!
The Wise Family

We love the movable parts of the Wise Family pieces- especially the little boy’s propeller hat and girl’s pigtails! The new dog and cat charms are also some of our favorites- when you are not wearing them on your bracelet you can add them to a chain to make a cute necklace!

Top (L-R): Mr. Wise ($55), Mrs. Wise ($55), Propeller Hat Boy ($55), Girls with Pigtails ($55), Forever Sisters ($55)
Bottom (L-R): Bull Terrier ($50), Sweet Cat ($50), Bulldog ($50), Labrador Puppy ($50), and Family Book ($55)

A lot of this year’s mom-themed charms are able to be separated into two charms, celebrating the connectedness between mom and her children. There are also some fun new interactive pieces- the Spinning Tree of Life can be turned around to reveal a message on the back, Mom’s Golden Heart reveals a message when rotated, and the Window Heart charm can be opened to show mom’s name in the night sky.

Top (L-R): Mom in a Million Heart ($45), Window Heart ($55), Mom Script ($35), Mom’s Golden Heart ($90), In My Heart ($75)
Bottom (L-R): Perfect Family ($65), My Little Baby ($55), Spinning Pandora Tree of Life ($55), Mother & Son Love ($65), Mother & Daughter Love ($75), Hold Your Heart Split ($60)

The Knotted Heart theme is represented in three new charms. We love the dangling Knotted Heart Charm with its sparkling background; on the reverse is engraved “Joined by Love”.

Knotted Heart ($35), Knotted Heart Clip ($35), Knotted Heart Dangle ($55)
Graduate Owl ($55) and Cap, Book, and Scroll ($45)

Another great addition is the new Our Promise charm for the newly engaged bride-to-be! This heart-shaped box opens up to reveal a moveable engagement ring- the inside of the lid is engraved “Yes!”

The My Rock charm for the groom-to-be to commemorate an engagement.

This year’s Mother’s Day collection also includes some new celebration charms for different occasions. The new 2019 graduation charm, engraved with the year, is one of our favorites- we love the moveable tassel on the graduation cap sitting on top of the books!

Our Promise ($65) and My Rock ($55)
Cap, Book, and Scroll ($45), Our Promise ($65), Heart Balloons ($55), My Rock ($55), Glittering Grooves ($60)

The last editions in the charm category are Disney charms preparing for the new Aladdin live action movie! We love the way the genie’s lamp glows in Pandora Shine ūüíõ

Magic Carpet Ride ($55) and Magic Lamp ($90)
Knotted Heart Dangle Earrings ($100), Knotted Heart Necklace ($90), Open Bangle ($125) styled with Luminous Love Knot ($65), Enchanted Pavé ($75), and Knotted Heart Dangle

In the new jewelry additions, we think the Knotted Heart pieces really stand out. We love the contrast between the bright silver knot and the sparkling oval.

We love the idea of creating a layered look with the new Knotted Heart toggle bracelet and an open bangle styled with the new knotted heart charm.

We think these pieces pair really nicely with the older Sparkling Love Knot and Luminous Love Knot designs as well!

We also like the new Family Tree necklace. A more petite version of the statement family tree necklace, this adjustable-length design is beautiful for everyday wear. The new Layered Heart necklace is also a real treat- it gives the look of two layered necklaces with one clasp!

Knotted Heart ($90), Pandora Tree of Life ($75), and Layered Heart ($100) necklaces

Other new jewelry pieces include a stud version of the Knotted Heart, stackable and statement versions of the Knotted Heart as a ring, and Family Tree studs and dangle ring.

Knotted Heart Studs ($50), Knotted Heart Dangle ($100), Pandora Tree of Life Studs ($55)
Knotted Hearts Band ($45), Knotted Heart ($75), Pandora Tree of Life ($55) rings

We hope our overview of the new Pandora Mother’s Day collection helped give you some great ideas for mom’s big day this year! Stop by Versant to see all of these beautiful pieces (and more!) in person. As always, we greatly appreciate all of our customers who make the effort to #shopsmall with us and support our local business.

Fly Away with the Pandora Garden Collection- New Spring Arrivals

Blossoms and butterflies, bright blues and romantic rose hues- the Pandora Garden collection is here! The spring collection always evokes the sunny days to come with its whimsical nature-related pieces. This year’s spring collection has four main themes- Wings to Fly, Lucky Styles, Matte Brilliance, and Blossoming Styles. There are also a few new Disney pieces that were released! Read on for our full review of the Pandora Garden charms and jewelry.

A Charmed Garden

New Butterfly Wing charm ($50) and Butterfly Outlines earrings ($65)

One of the main themes of this year’s spring collection is butterflies.

All jewelry categories got some beautiful new winged editions- some a literal take on the butterfly image and others, like the Butterfly Wing charm, an abstract use of the butterfly outline.

We love the use of enamel in this year’s butterfly-themed pieces. Not only do we have the usual soft pinks and vibrant blues- there are some new pieces that mix in emerald greens and marigold yellows in a fun new way!

Decorative Butterflies Pandora Shine earrings ($75), Dazzling Pink Butterfly necklace ($100), Classic Flower Arrangement charm ($55) on the new Sliding Bangle bracelet ($65)
The new Decorative Butterfly statement charm ($80) surrounded by Butterfly Wing charms on the open bangle.

We think the new Decorative Butterfly statement charm makes a great centerpiece to a spring themed bracelet. We also love the way the spring pinks and cobalt blue colors are complemented by the bright gold of Pandora Shine!

Rounding out the butterfly charms are the `Dazzling Pink Butterfly ($75), Butterfly Arrangement spacer ($30), Butterfly Glass charm ($50), Butterfly Arrangement clip ($40), and Pink Butterflies charm ($50)
Limited Edition Floral Bella Bot ($75)

You can’t have a magical garden without flowers! The Blossom portion of the Pandora Garden collection features both bright enamel flowers and classic monotone silver styles.

We love the Blue Sparkle Flower charm with its soft blue tones. It goes really well with last year’s Blue Enchanted Pav√© charm.

There is even a new Limited Edition Bella Bot- Floral Bella Bot! She is so charming with her flower crown and moveable butterfly wings!

In the Blossom collection are the Blooming Watering Can ($55), Pink Flower Glass ($50), Flower Color Story ($65), Classic Flower Arrangement ($55), Four-Petal Flower Dangle ($55), Blue Sparkle Flower ($80), Openwork Flower Charm ($30), and Flower Bella Bot ($75)

The last theme in the Pandora Garden silver charms is Lucky Styles, featuring the Four-Leaf clover- all grown up!

The majority of this part of the collections centers around a beautiful bright silver oversized clover.

There are also some more colorful charms that mix emerald greens and light pink for a dazzling effect.

We love the adjustability of the Lucky Four Leaf Clover Y-Style necklace- pull on the bottom leaf to change the length of the bottom chain!

Included in the Clover-themed collection are the Clover Cut-Out charm ($35), Shining Clover Clip in Pandora Shine ($50), Gleaming Clover Heart Charm ($70), Clover & Ladybird Dangle ($55), Dazzling Clover Dangle ($65), and Horseshoe, Clover & Ladybird Dangle ($65)

There are only a few Pandora Rose charm editions this season (but a lot of beautiful jewelry!). The all-Pandora Rose charms include the Rose Gleaming Ladybird Heart charm ($100), Matte Brilliance Heart Charm ($55), and Pink Sparkle Flower charm ($115).

Bon Voyage!

Have any travels planned for this spring? Pandora has a new mini-collection of travel charms!

Celebrate your wanderlust with these fun new pieces. Whether you are backpacking through Europe, setting out on a road trip in your camper van, or just packing your bag for a weekend trip, there is something new for you!

We love this trio of charms celebrating Latin destinations. The bright red enamel on the Spanish fan is so striking in person!

Spanish Fan Dangle ($45), Sparkling Skull ($55), and Love Puerto Rico dangle ($55)
The new travel charms include the Spanish Fan, Pink Headphones dangle ($50), Suitcase dangle ($55), Camper Van ($45), Sparkling Turtle ($50), Sparkling Skull ($55), Brilliant Bicycle ($65), and Adventure Bag ($50)

Spring Jewelry Styles

The Pandora Garden collection includes a lot of fun new earrings, necklaces, and rings- and a new bracelet design!

The new bracelet uses the sliding closure with a hard bangle bracelet. This is a great style for those who like the more natural shape of the oval open bangle but worry about not having a safety closure.

The earrings, rings, and necklaces all follow closely with the Pandora Garden themes of butterflies, blossoms, and lucky clovers.

We love the four-petal blossom styles as a new classic look with a spring twist. Not overly flowery, they pack a good amount of sparkle in a small stud!

New earring arrivals include the Butterfly Outlines earrings ($65), Lucky Four-Leaf Clover earrings ($75), Draped Four-Petal Flower earrings ($60), Four-Petal Flower studs ($55), Radiant Clover studs ($55), Hearts of Pandora Shine hoops ($115), and Decorative Butterfly Shine studs ($75)

Most of the new necklaces keep with the Pandora Garden theme, but there is one notable addition that stands on its own. The Joined Hearts chain necklace has a statement heart link. At 24″ length, it is a great chain to create a layered look with your other Pandora pieces!

Joined Hearts chain ($55), Dazzling & Dancing Butterflies necklace ($100), Lucky Four-Leaf Clover necklace ($90), Dazzling Pink Butterfly necklace ($100), Lucky Four-Leaf Clover pendant ($50)

New Pandora Petite charms for the Floating Lockets have also been released with the spring collection. We love the sparkling green clover!

Pink Butterflies Petite ($20) and Radiant Green Clover ($25)

The new ring additions include classic pieces, like the Four-Petal flower rings, and sparkling garden statements, like the Bedazzling Butterflies ring.

The new stackable Flower Crown ring is a great addition to the Enchanted Crown collection. Like the Enchanted Crown, the Flower Crown rings can be stack back-to-back or intertwined for a two-tone look.

One of our favorite rings this season is the Sparkling Elegance ring released in the Pandora Rose finish- it is so elegant!

Four Petal Flower Ring ($55) and Four Petal Flower Twisted Ring ($65)
Pandora Rose Flower Crown ($100), Silver Flower Crown ($75), Bedazzling Butterflies ($75), Moving Clover ($75), Four Petal Flower ($55), Pandora Rose Sparkling Elegance ($90), Pandora Rose Matte Brilliance Hearts ($65), Bedazzling Butterfly ($65), Dangling Clover ($50), and Four Petal Flower Twisted ($65)

The Rose Garden

Sparkling Elegance Ring ($90), Radiant Teardrop Ring ($125), and Sparkling Elegance Earrings ($65)

We love rose gold tones for spring- they are so soft and romantic! Luckily, there are some gorgeous new jewelry releases in the Pandora Rose finish.

Some of the new Pandora Rose spring pieces are a reimagining of popular silver styles in the Rose finish.

The Sparkling Elegance ring and earrings have both been released in Pandora Rose. We love the simple sparkle of these pieces- they would make great prom accessories!

The majority of the Pandora Rose pieces that were released for spring show off a new finish- Matte Brilliance. Using a velvety new texture, Matte Brilliance tones down the shine of Pandora Rose and brings out the color.

Matte Brilliance Hoop Earrings ($115) and Matte Brilliance Heart studs ($55)
Matte Brilliance Hoop Earrings ($115), Sparkling Elegance earrings ($65), and Matte Brilliance Heart Studs ($55)

One of our absolute favorite pieces in the Pandora Garden collection is the Pandora Rose Ladybird pendant.

We love the soft pink against the Pandora Rose and the touch of sparkle underneath the wings.

This lucky ladybird is ready to fly home with us!

Necklace additions in the Pandora Rose also include a Matte Brilliance Heart pendant and the Joined Hearts chain in the Pandora Rose finish.

Pandora Rose Ladybird pendant ($65)
Matte Brilliance Heart pendant ($65), Ladybird pendant ($65), Joined Hearts necklace ($150)

Pandora Disney

In preparation for the new Timothy Burton directed Dumbo live-action film, two new Disney charms are being released! We love the dangling Dumbo charm with his blue eyes and adorable oversized ears. The back of the Dumbo & Mrs. Jumbo charm has engraved “My Precious Love”

Dumbo & Mrs. Jumbo ($55) and Dumbo dangle charm ($65)

We hope you enjoyed our review of the new spring collection! Stop by Versant to see all of these beautiful new charms in person.

Sparkle All the Way- The Pandora 2018 Holiday Collection Has Arrived

The holiday season is drawing near and it is our favorite time of the year- the release of the Pandora winter collections!  This year has some gorgeous new jewelry additions, heartwarming charms, and tons of fun for the Disney lover.  Check out our review of all the new pieces below!

Have Yourself a Charming Little Christmas

This year’s holiday collection includes charms for a wide range of tastes and budgets. ¬†The charms and jewelry fall into two main themes: Christmas in Space, offering whimsical celestial-themed pieces and bringing the sparkle with dazzling baguette cuts, and the Traditional Christmas charms we all love.

For the sparkle lover, the charms of the Christmas in Space collection mimic shards of ice with baguette cut cubic zirconia in scattered formations.  We love the new chiseled elegance charms ($75) and Ice Sculpture spacers ($45), both available in clear or midnight blue.

Two of our other favorite charms, the Dazzling Wishes ($65) dangle and Pav√© Sphere button-style charm ($75) are available both by themselves and in some of gift set offerings this year. ¬†The Dazzling Wishes charm, depicting a firework bursting in the sky, is engraved with “The Best is Yet to Come” on the reverse and makes a great pairing with the Dazzling Fireworks charm ($65). ¬†In keeping with the icy theme, the Ice Carving dangle ($55) is engraved with “You Melt My Heart” with an overhanging icy wreath.

Two well-received styles have been updated with new colors- the Sparkling Love heart charm ($75), which made its debut in the fall, is now available in midnight blue and the Dazzling Snowflake ($90) now comes in Cerise red as well.

The more whimsical part of the Christmas in Space theme celebrates the arrival of some new Pandora Friends.  Bella Bot, now also available in the Pandora Shine finish ($100), is joined by her faithful companion Bobby Bot ($60).  We love his moveable flap ears!

Cosmo Tommy ($75) has also joined the Pandora Friends, adding a touch of adventure to this collectible bunch.  The Planet of Love charm ($55) is a limited edition piece only available during this holiday season.

For those days when the reindeers need a break, Santa can be seen cruising about in his rocket ship in the Santa in Space charm ($50).  The String of Beads dangle charm ($50) is part of the Purely Pandora collection, but also fits well with these fun planetary additions.

In addition to the Ice Sculpture spacers, two new clips, the Beaded Brilliance ($45) in silver and Ice Formation ($55) in Pandora rose, have been added to the collection.  The Personal Galaxy safety chain ($65) helps ensure that your bracelet is secure while you look up at the stars.

The Traditional Christmas charms this year focus on warmth and family and are accented with a beautiful berry red and white enamel.  We love the new Christmas Train charm ($75)- it comes in two connected parts!

Another one of our favorites this year is the Warm Cocoa charm ($45)- how adorable is the candy cane sticking out of the whipped cream! ¬†Take a close look at the Christmas Bear charm ($45) to see Pandora’s intense detail- he is holding the same cup of warm cocoa in his hand. ¬†We also love the Merry Christmas charm ($40) as a way to celebrate the season for those who have a more neutral-colored bracelet.

Another staff favorite this year is the Cozy Christmas House dangle charm ($55).  From the front it is a festive red house.  Turn it around to take a peek inside the home at all of the Christmas decorations.

Rounding out the Traditional Christmas charms are the Happy Reindeer in Pandora Rose ($65), Nutcracker Dangle ($65)- great for ballerinas!- and the Perfect Christmas dangle ($55) that states “It’s not what’s under the tree that matters, it’s who’s gathered around it.”

In addition to the sterling silver and Pandora Rose charms, two new 14k yellow gold charms have been added in this year’s holiday collection.

The Heart of Luxury clip ($450) has beautiful pav√© accents and a cut-out heart at the center. ¬†The Glowing with Love charm ($350) features cut-out hearts with the word “Love” in script at the center.

Deck Your Neck (and Ears and Fingers!)

Like this year’s charms, the holiday collection jewelry can be grouped in two main themes:¬†Purely Pandora, focusing on a minimalist look in smooth silver, and Luminous Ice, featuring the same baguette-cut CZs that added an icy look to many of the charms.

We love the simple aesthetic of the Purely Pandora pieces.  The Contemporary Pearl necklace ($90) and Hoop Earrings ($90) would make a great set for the girl who likes a streamlined look that focuses on the beauty of shining sterling.

The Luminous Ice pieces are perfect for the girl who likes a little sparkle in her life. ¬†The Glacial Beauty Drop earrings ($90) are gorgeous in person and show off the on-trend forward facing hoop style. ¬†The Shards of Sparkle necklace ($125) is a beautiful companion piece that would make anyone’s holiday merry and bright.

The necklaces category also sees the addition of a new Cross Pendant ($60) with a sparkling tapered bale and an engraved necklace with the script engraving “Blessed” ($75).

The Purely Pandora collection also includes an innovative new Y-necklace, String of Beads ($75) with an adjustable length and movable beads. ¬†The Contemporary Pearls necklace in Pandora Rose ($225) is another beautiful selection for someone whose style leans more towards the simple and classic. ¬†For someone who likes a more sentimental gift, the Moon and Stars necklace ($115) is a wonderful choice- emblazoned with sparkling stars, it opens to reveal the message “Love you to the moon and back.”

 

The Luminous Ice pendants, available in silver ($65) and Pandora Rose ($75), offer a petite flash of sparkle.

The Luminous Ice collection also includes a beautiful interpretation in the rings available in both the sterling silver ($75) and Pandora Rose ($100) finishes.

The Glacial Beauty ring ($100) is a new stackable design that complements the Luminous Ice collection with a row of baguette cut CZ stones.

 

Other additions to the ring collection include the Contemporary Pearl ring in Pandora Rose ($90), String of Beads Ring ($50), Contemporary Pearl cuff ring ($65), and Shards of Sparkle ring ($75).

Some of our favorite pieces in this year’s holiday jewelry are in the earrings category. ¬†We love the Lunar Light stud earrings ($50) and Luminous Ice stud earrings ($60) for a touch of everyday sparkle. ¬†The Glacial Beauty drop earrings are a gorgeous statement piece ($90).

From the Purely Pandora collection, the Contemporary Pearl Hoops in silver ($90) and Pandora Rose ($115) add a modern twist to an old standard.  The Classic Beads stud earrings ($45) and String of Beads hoop earrings ($50) continue the smooth beaded design.  One of the most innovative earring designs is the String of Beads dangle earrings ($65), which can be pulled to change the length of the dangling beads.

Pandora has also added two new sliding bracelet designs this year.  The String of Beads bracelet from the Purely Pandora collection ($65) features graduated beads in bright sterling silver.  The Glacial Beauty sliding bracelet ($100) is a stunning sparkling piece with scattered baguette cut CZs.

The open bangle also has a new design for Disney lovers- the end caps are cute Mickey and Minnie portraits ($125).

Mickey Clause is Coming to Town

This year’s Disney additions focus on classic Mickey and holiday celebrations. ¬†There are also some new charms to showcase the Mary Poppins Returns movie coming out this year!

Mickey and Minnie’s sparkling portraits are now available as clips ($90), which look great as stationary pieces on a bangle or leather bracelet. ¬†The Steamboat Willie ($65) portrait charm is part of the celebration of Mickey’s origins and the Sorcerer Mickey ($65) dangle charm honors one of his most famous roles. ¬†We love that this year’s Disney additions include some overtly Christmas beads, including the Santa Mickey charm ($65), Santa Mickey’s Candy Cane dangle ($65), and Santa Mickey & Gift Bag dangle ($65).

Disney has also expanded into the Essence collection with the two-tone silver and Pandora Rose Mickey and Minnie portrait charms ($50).

This year’s Limited Edition charm ($100) celebrates Mickey’s 90th birthday. Packaged in a special box, it shows mickey leaning against a golden “90”- he looks good for his age!

For those anxiously awaiting the new Mary Poppins movie, these three charms are a delight! We love Mary Poppins’ bag ($50), which is covered in flowers and bears her name on the bottom. ¬†The Mary Poppins Silhouette charm is distinctive in bright enamel colors ($65) and the Umbrella dangle ($70) focuses on one of her iconic symbols.

We also love the new Mickey and Minnie nesting rings! The sparkling Minnie silhouette and bow ($65) fits above the Minnie silhouette ($50).

Sometimes the Best Things Come Already Packaged

One of the highlights of the Pandora holiday collection is always their beautiful gift sets. ¬†This year’s additions include two bracelet gift sets, a jewelry gift set, and this year’s Limited Edition 2018 charm.

The Luminous Ice jewelry gift set ($140) includes the Luminous Ice pendant and earrings and a 45cm sterling silver chain, for a savings of $25.

The Dazzling Wishes gift set includes the Pandora Smooth bracelet, Dazzling Wishes dangle charm, and two Shining Elegance clips.  At $179 it offers a savings of $66.

The set is presented in a beautiful white leatherette travel box with room for your bracelet, earrings, and necklaces.

Our favorite set is the Wintry Holiday Open Bangle set, which includes the open bangle and the new Pavé Sphere charm.  At $129 it offers a savings of $26.

We love the look of the set finished off with two galaxy spacers and pavé lights charms!

Following last year’s collaboration, this year’s Limited Edition charm is also presented in conjunction with the New York Radio City Music Hall’s Rockettes. ¬†The charm is decorated with glistening white enamel and a small star and moon dangle at the top. ¬†It is presented in a larger replica of the ornament that you can hang on your tree!

We love the sparkle of this year’s holiday charms and jewelry. ¬†Stop by Versant to see all of the new pieces in person!

 

 

 

Fall, Helpful Hints, Information, New Arrivals

Fall Style- How to Get the Layered Look

Getting the Layered Look for Fall

Fall is the season for layers- and we don’t just mean clothing! ¬†We love the look of layered necklaces- it’s a great way to stay on-trend while showcasing more than one of your favorite pieces. Find out how to achieve that layered look with our Layering 101 how-to guide!

Pick a Focus Piece or Theme

You want your layered pieces to form a cohesive group.  Picking a theme, such as a color, metal, or symbol, can help pull all of your pieces together.  Alternatively, start out with one of your favorite pieces you would like to be a focus and find pieces that are natural complements to this piece.

For our example, we chose to focus on one of our WinterLemon natural sapphire necklaces.  We love the raw gemstone set in gold vermeil for our fall wardrobe!

layered raw sapphire

Antonia Raw Sapphire Necklace

The necklace we chose as our focus contrasts warm yellow gold with a cool grey tone in the gem.  To pair with this, we chose some pieces in various lengths that feature the same yellow gold and grey contrast.

layered yellow gold and grey

Complementary Styles in Yellow Gold and Grey

Start Long

We like to start with our longest piece first.  A long necklaces anchors your grouping, helps center your focus, and keeps your look from being too top heavy.  We like to choose our heavier pendants and chains for our longer necklaces.

layered looks

Yellow Gold Thortiuda Pendant & Chain

For this layered look we chose one of our large yellow gold Thortiuda pendants on an anchor chain with a light grey chime.  We love the versatility of the Thortiuda line- the colored interior chime is interchangeable, making it customizable to a wide range of looks.

Add Your Focus

After we anchor our look with a long piece, we like to add our focus piece. ¬†Your focus piece is the piece that you can’t live without. ¬†Adding it in early helps make sure that you choose pieces that don’t have a similar length or overpower it. ¬†We like our focus piece to be between 16-20″ in chain length, as this is the piece that is usually most noticeable at first glance.

layered looks

We chose our raw sapphire necklace to be the focus piece for this look. ¬†On a 16″ bar chain, it is a good length and has an interesting chain that helps set it apart without being too heavy.

Fill in Space with Varied Shapes & Textures

The next step is to fill in some of the space between your anchor and focus pieces with a new variation on your theme.  Choose a piece that complements your theme in one way but adds something different in another- this can be an added color, new texture, or unique chain.

layered looks

Freida Rothman Maltese Marquise Necklace

For this look, we chose the Freida Rothman Maltese Marquise necklace. ¬†At 18-20″ with a longer pendant, it was a good length to bridge the gap between our raw sapphire and Thortiuda necklaces. ¬†The yellow gold and dark grey rhodium fit into our theme, but the hammered texture and use of metal to bring in color as compared to stone kept our layers from being identical to the point of being uninteresting.

Keep it Light

We like to finish off our layered look with a feather-light short necklace.  This can be a simple chain or delicate piece with a small pendant.  Choosing a daintier top piece helps keep a natural look by placing the heavier pieces low and the lighter pieces on top.

layered looks

Pyrite Wellness Necklace

For this look we chose one of our WinterLemon Wellness necklaces with a pyrite gemstone.  The pyrite has a natural look similar in color to the raw sapphire of our focus piece.  Set in a very light chain with small stones, it adheres to the look of our theme without competing with the focus piece or bringing too much attention away from our face.

Don’t Be Afraid to Break the Rules

Now that we have set out or guidelines on how to create the perfect layered look, there is only one more piece of advice– don’t be afraid to step outside of the box! ¬†Different outfits, pieces, and themes may ask you to be more or less adventurous. ¬†A busy pattern or button down shirt may not call for a longer piece. ¬†You may want less (or more!) layers. ¬†You may want to try layering groupings of chains without pendants.

At the end of the day, the only rule that you need to follow is this:  if you love it, rock it!

Featured Designer, Limited Edition, New Arrivals, Pandora

Festival Season is Here! Meet the New Pandora 2018 Summer Collection

The season of sunshine has arrived! ¬†This year’s Pandora Summer mini-collection includes some bright and beautiful new pieces to celebrate the sunny days ahead. ¬†Inspired by summer festivals, this collection is highlighted by trendy feathers, bright colors, and lots of layers.

A Charmed Summer

This year’s summer collection charms are a mixture of rainbow hues, bohemian styles, and whimsical designs. ¬†One of the themes of the collection is “Follow Your Dreams,” which is engraved on both the gorgeous new Dreamcatcher and Compass Rose charms.

The Dreamcatcher makes a standout choice as a new centerpiece on an open bangle!  The new mosaic charms feature rainbow enamel with mother of pearl accents.

Many of the other charms in the collection center around festival days and boardwalk nights.  We love the new Pandora ferris wheel and popcorn charms (studded with little pearl kernels!).  The sunglasses emoji charm is a great way to express your summertime mood.

 

In addition to the rainbow mosaic, there is a new rainbow heart clip, Radiant Hearts of Pandora charm with rainbow halo, and Love charm with rainbow crystals to help you create a color-filled bracelet. ¬†The carved glass heart charm introduced at Valentine’s Day gets two new companions in burnt orange and turquoise blue for a fun pop of bright color. ¬†Also featuring the turquoise color is a new heart-shaped silicon clip. ¬†On the more whimsical side are the new peace sign, Compass Rose, and Burger and Fries (inscribed “Best Friends” on the top!).

You Can Never Have Too Many Bracelets

The Pandora Summer collection has added some versatile new bracelet styles in their leather collection.  Breaking away from the traditional braided leather design, these feature a smooth leather that lets your charms really stand out.

In the new adjustable sliding bracelet, a black and tan leather style has been added.  In the seasonal leather bracelets, a fun sterling button accent adds an on-trend look to the double wrap bracelets, available in orange, blue, tan, and black.  The sparkling strand has also been updated with a seasonal addition featuring rainbow crystals!

Lots of Layers

Some of the biggest additions to the Pandora Summer collection this year are in the necklace category.  Proving that one is never enough, the new necklaces are meant to be layered in different lengths and pendant groupings to get the full festival effect.

We love the new adjustable length black and tan chokers.  They come with the new feather pendant but can also be worn with any Pandora charm- the Dreamcatcher looks amazing on the choker!  The new textured necklace chain is also a great way to show off your unique style.

In the engraved collection, an “I Love You to the Moon and Back” disc necklace has been added. ¬†For those that like to make a personalized collection of pendants, the new charm-catcher style heart necklace is a fun addition. ¬†We love the idea of adding a grouping of birthstones to represent your family!

In addition to the new chains and chokers, there are a variety of fun pendants that arrived with summer. These pendants look great grouped together in a mix of color and texture.  The new fabric tassels, available in turquoise, pink, orange, and black, and horn pendants are a seasonal addition and will only be available through the summer.  The Fan of Love pendant, available, in silver and Pandora Rose, is cut to create a wonderful sparkling effect. The feather pendant, which comes with the choker necklace, is also available on its own.

Other Adornments

Although the earring and ring departments do not have a great number of new additions, what they have added are some very innovative designs.  The Summer Collection sees the introduction of the Pandora ear cuff, worn at the top of the earlobe.  The new chain-style rings give a new texture to your ring stack and look great grouped together.

Other jewelry additions include a hoop earring with feather and turquoise heart dangle that are a great match to the feather pendant, earrings in silver and Pandora Rose to coordinate with the Fan of Love charm and pendant, and new statement rings with smooth black and turquoise cabochon stones.

 

We love the new styles of the Pandora Summer collection! ¬†These fun bursts of color, sparkle, and texture are the perfect accessory to the sunny days ahead. ¬†Stop by Versant to check out all of the new additions in person! We would love to help you restyle your summer bracelet ‚ėÄ

Make it Meaningful

Does mom love jewelry that is both unique and meaningful? Our new Talisman Collection pieces might be just the thing for her!  A talisman is a jewelry object that is believed to bring good luck, protect against harm, and is charged with the meaning of a chosen symbol or word.

Fierce Talisman Necklace ($65), Devoted Talisman Necklace with Garnet ($69), Crown Talisman Necklace with Moonstone ($69)

Our talisman necklaces are delicate pieces made from sterling silver that have a word, phrase, or symbol.  Some of our talismans are made from antique book pages, making them one-of-a-kind- just like mom!

Each year Pandora releases a new collection geared towards Mother’s Day. ¬†We love this year’s new additions! ¬†The Bonds of Love jewelry pieces, featuring a stylized bow that represents that strong bond between a mother and her family, are classic and elegant. ¬†The charm selections are also very sweet- we particularly love the mother and baby bird dangle charm.

This year’s charms have some intricate details that really make them feel special. ¬†One example is the Perfect Home charm, which opens in to reveal the saying “Home is where MOM is.”

 

Is mom just starting out on a bracelet or is her bracelet almost full?  Check out the new Pandora open bangle!  This is our favorite Pandora piece- it is easy to put on, includes two silver stoppers to keep your charms in place, and is very comfortable and stylish!

You can wear the bangle with your favorite charms, a simple statement charm, or turn it around and wear it by itself as a cuff with no charms at all!

 

Support Our Local Family

Is mom one-of-a-kind? One of the best ways to find a unique gift to suit her tastes is to shop locally sourced treasures handmade by some of our smaller local artisans.

If mom has a special connection to Bethlehem, we have a variety of Star of Bethlehem jewelry made especially for us that would be a great way to celebrate her own roots or where she has decided to grow her family. ¬†We love the Star of Bethlehem symbol for moms who work in the St. Luke’s network as well!

Another local favorite is one of our exclusive designers, WinterLemon Jewelry, which is handmade in Bethlehem. ¬†These pieces are handmade from natural gemstones and many of them are one-of-a-kind! ¬†We particularly love WinterLemon’s rose gold pieces with labradorite and moonstone for spring.

 

WinterLemon Wellness Collection Gemstone Bracelets (starting at $16)

If mom never leaves home without her stack of bracelets, WinterLemon’s new Wellness Collection is a great choice. ¬†These stretch bracelets are made from natural gemstones and come with a card explaining the properties of the stone used. ¬†Starting at $16, it is easy to put together a stack of complementary colors and textures to make mom smile!

Go for the Gold

Gold is back in a big way! ¬†For the mom who is on-trend, gold jewelry is a must have. Golden tones are especially great for the sunshine loving mom who lives for those perfect summer days. ¬†Our golden pick for Mother’s Day is Julie Vos jewelry. ¬†Constructed of 24k gold over brass and studded with semi-precious stones, pearls, and glass, these nature and architecture inspired pieces combine classic styles with current colors and textures.

Bee Necklace ($168), Loire Pearl Station Necklace ($225), Loire Aqua Pendant Necklace ($185), Loire Aqua Station Necklace ($225), Valencia Reversible Coin Necklace ($265)

Some of the most show-stopping Julie Vos pieces are her statement necklaces.  Many of her longer layering necklaces have a special loop to allow them to easily be worn doubled, giving them an extra versatility.  The iridescent aqua pieces are our favorites- they remind us of a bright summer sky!

Milano 6-stone Bangle ($85-$125)

For the mom that prefers bracelets, Julie Vos’ stacking bangles are also a real treat! ¬†We love creating stacks with her Milano 6-stone bangle in different colors. ¬†The pearl and aqua blue stones make a beautiful combination!

Clara Chandelier Earrings ($165)

Another one of our favorite pieces from this season’s collection is the Clara Chandelier earrings in iridescent blue chalcedony. ¬†The color in these earrings is so vibrant and unique!

Memory Keeper

Many say that mom is the heart of the family- she nurtures us through the important milestones of our lives and can make simple moments into lifelong memories.  We love the idea of a charm locket honor her role as memory maker and keeper.

Smooth Heart Locket ($125) with Initial ($10), Birthstone ($20) and Family ($10) petite charms.

Pandora’s Memory Locket and petite charms make it easy to create the perfect vignette for mom. ¬†The lockets themselves are available in several different shapes and sizes and use high-quality sapphire crystal to ensure a locket that will stand the test of time without becoming scratched or cloudy. ¬†With several family-related charms, birthstones, and the new initials collection, you can create a collection with a piece that represents everyone in your family.

Heart Key Locket ($140), Sparkling Medium Locket ($140), Petite Charms starting at $10

One of our favorite features of the sparkling lockets is that they are reversible!  Wear them sparkly side up when you are feeling like you need a little shine or wear them with the smooth silver side up when you want a more casual look.

Because She’s Your Rock

Mom is a lot like a diamond- she brings light and sparkle into our life but is also one of the strongest things in our world.  Bring a little radiance into her life with a piece of fine jewelry to show her how much you appreciate everything she represents.  Unlike costume and silver jewelry, which will not stand everyday wear over the years, a piece of gold jewelry is something that she can cherish throughout her lifetime.

When looking at fine jewelry, we love a simple silhouette to ensure that it is something that mom can wear with as much style 10 years from now as she will today.  We love this diamond solitaire necklace because it is both elegant and classic in style.

 

For something more unique, this Paraiba Tourmaline & Diamond necklace is one of our absolute favorites- this rare stone has such a unique color!  We also love this floating Marquise Diamond necklace for a very delicate look that still packs on the sparkle.

POP Diamond Bracelet ($250)

For the more active mom, the POP Diamond bracelet would make a wonderful gift.  A 0.10ct diamond is set in sterling silver on a nylon cord, making this a great choice for the mom on the go.

Interested in looking at more of our fine jewelry selections?  You can browse some more of our selection here.

Home is Where Mom Is

We love our Compass Rose collection for almost any occasion, but it is particularly fitting for Mother’s Day. ¬†The symbol of the compass embodies the ideas of guidance and coming home. ¬†The Compass Rose tells mom that, no matter how far we may travel, our heart will always know the way back home to her.

In addition to the standard Compass Rose card, we have some wonderful mom-related cards that you can choose from.

The oxidized and colored enamel Compass Rose pendants also include the engraving on the back that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home.”

Do you think that the Compass Rose might be the perfect gift for mom?  You can see more styles here.

Your Guardian Angel

Is mom the guardian angel of your family? ¬†Show your appreciation with a beautiful Thortiuda necklace! ¬†Thortiuda, Thai for angel, is also called the Angel Whisperer. ¬†Each pendant opens to reveal a colored chime whose soft tone brings peace in a ¬†stressful world and is meant to call your angel to watch over you. ¬†These necklaces are designed after traditional bolo necklaces worn in different cultures during pregnancy. ¬†The chime, worn over the belly, soothes the baby and brings an angel’s protection.

Large Silver Thortiuda Pendant with CZ Accents ($209), Colored Chimes ($18 each), Crystal Encrusted Chimes ($59)

One of our favorite parts of Thortiuda is the interchangeable chimes.  Each color has its own meaning and its own sound.  Choose a color that best reflects what mom means to you!

The last special addition this year is the Flourishing Hearts Limited Edition locket bangle. ¬†This bangle has the new locket-style clasp with the Flourishing Hearts motif and is engraved “Love makes a family” on the bangle. ¬†You can add charms to the bangle, but we think this bangle would also be beautiful standing by itself stacked with mom’s other bracelets! ¬†This is a Limited Edition offering and is $75.

Earrings, Rings, and More

With the Mother’s Day Collection, a small group of new jewelry items beyond the charms has been released as well.

One of our favorite new additions is the new Alphabet petites ($10) for the Memory Lockets.  These new initials are reversible- one side is a smooth silver and the other has a pretty texture studded with hearts and small dots.  Mix initials and birthstones to make a representation of your family!pandora mother's day collection 2018

We love the new Brilliant Bow earrings ($60)- more abstract (and mature) than the existing bow earrings, the long line of these is really pretty when you wear them as an ear climber.  Other earring additions include new small hoop-style abstract heart earrings in both silver and Pandora Rose, Flourishing Heart studs, heart studs with a soft pink enamel.pandora mother's day collection 2018

In new necklaces, there are two disc-style engraved necklaces ($75).  These are a longer length and would make great layering pieces.  The new Pandora Signature collection has added some heart pendant designs in both silver and Pandora Rose as well.pandora mother's day collection 2018

One of our favorite additions in the Mother’s Day Collection is the Pandora Rose version of the wishbone rings released during the holidays! ¬†These look great stacked together or stacked with their silver counterparts. ¬†The Shimmering Wish with its sparkling CZs is particularly pretty! ¬†There are also two new Pandora Signature rings, one in silver and one in Rose, and a Brilliant Bow statement ring.

Pandora has continued to innovate in their bracelet designs this year.  The new bolo-style sliding bracelets, which began last year with the Sparkling Strand, have made their way into the charm line as well.  These bracelets adjust to fit any wrist size, making sizing much easier, and have interchangeable ends so that you can make two-tone designs!  The Sparkling Strand bracelet has also been updated to include a new version with golden colored CZs.
