Pearl and Crystal Bracelet 3

Paired Bracelets to Double the Glam!

Tired of your usual jewelry lineup and looking for something fresh to try? We here at Heirloom Finds have a look that’s fun to experiment with and easy to achieve. We give you: paired bracelets! Simply find two identical bracelets, slip one onto each wrist and voilà! You’ve crafted a statement look that will glam up nearly any ensemble. Need a little more inspiration? We’ve got you covered.

For formal attire, all you need are two sparkling rhinestone bracelets with an attractively ornate design. We’re definitely in love with how this blush pink dress plays perfectly with these Art Deco-inspired bands. The look is on-point for wedding couture, soirée ensembles and every outfit in need of some exquisite double shimmer.

Don’t be afraid to try styling multiple pairs of matching bracelets. We’ve combined clear crystal and white simulated pearl stretch bracelets together and found the look to be nothing short of fabulous. Their coordinating antiqued goldtone finish lends a timeless feel that’s ideal for evening wear.

Crystal Bracelets

Colorful crystals add amazing pop to your casual cute.

If you prefer something a little more casual, try styling colorful crystal bracelets in a double arm party. The arrangement makes a wonderful addition to your go-to jeans and blouse combo! This look lets you rock favorite colors that fantastically fit your mood. We’re a little bit obsessed with this pink and black stretch bracelet mélange.

Gold Bracelets

Want to try something really daring? Style some statement cuffs over long sleeves!

Something a little more daring but definitely striking is wearing bold cuffs over long sleeves. Such an eye-catching look makes an incredible statement your fashionable friends will envy. These polished goldtone cuffs create a vibe that’s perfect for fall when they’re combined with a chic marsala sweater.

This incredible style breathes new life into wardrobes, but it’s actually a rather old look. Wearing matching wide repoussé cuffs or wrap bracelets on both wrists was a major fashion fad during the Victorian era. The style also appears in the artwork of ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, among others. When you’re ready to rock your own take on this time-tested trend, rest assured that we have the bracelets you need to craft a matching double arm party that’s uniquely you!

Marsala: 2015′s Color of the Year

Header Image

The official color for 2015 is absolutely stunning!

If you’re a fan of rich and versatile neutral colors, this is your year. The Pantone Color Institute, the prominent leader in color insights and trend forecasting, has declared that Marsala is the color of the year for 2015. A warm and soulful shade of earthy terracotta, Marsala has exciting potential for adding an attractive pop to makeup, apparel and jewelry. According to Pantone, it effortlessly flatters a range of skin tones and welcomes trendsetters to experiment with their own creativity in flashing this fabulous shade. The color’s burnished blend of red and brown evokes a notable organic feel, but can also imply extraordinary luxury and sophistication when it’s combined with a desirable sheen. From home decor to manicured nails, this subtly sultry color is ready to make a resounding splash in 2015’s design scene.

Such a complex and beautiful shade!

But what is the meaning behind the name? For most of us, it probably brings to mind the Italian American dish chicken marsala, which is a delicious combination of chicken, mushrooms and a sauce made from a reduction of Marsala wine. It is from this wine that this year’s number one fashion color takes its inspiration. Marsala takes its name from the Italian city near where it was first produced in Sicily. It was originally crafted in the late 1700’s when English merchant John Woodhouse combined a locally produced wine with grape brandy to fortify the beverage for long ocean voyages. Marsala enjoyed a lengthy period of popularity with the British navy before eventually becoming more widely accepted as a cooking wine. However, it has regained favor with oenophiles in recent years. The color it has inspired is, as we know, nothing short of spectacular.

History lesson aside, how do you plan to rock this luxe hue? It pairs incredibly well with pink and lavender tones, giving you a chance to sport some feminine flair with a chic Marsala dress or covetable coat. Statement rings, dazzling dangle earrings, flirty bracelets and striking necklaces in these soft, pretty shades are surefire options for amping up the glam of your next cutting-edge Marsala ensemble.

Your jewelry collection will thank you for adding such attractive blue baubles to your Marsala style lineup.

Based on Pantone’s top color pick for 2015, we think it’s safe to say that this year should be nothing short of outstanding on the fashion front. Who could have guessed that a wine historically valued by sailors and chefs could inspire such a gorgeous hue? However you decide to sport Marsala and whatever glamorous jewelry you choose to wear with it, we hope you enjoy this stunning color of the year as much as we do!
