By | Projects | No Comments

 

With London Fashion week in full swing, we are embracing AW17-18 catwalk wonders and can’t help but get excited about all the gorgeous trends we will be taking for a spin this Spring/Summer.

Here, we share our top five favourite fashion and jewellery trends you need to know now!

With so much fashion inspiration flowing from London, New York, Paris and Milan, SS17 promises to be a truly exciting season. From summer’s new lace classic with a twist – crochet bottoms at Burberry – to floral bralets at Tory Burch, we can already picture ourselves sipping minty-fresh Mohitos at a bohemian beach bar in Mykonos. Just don’t forget to pack the accessories, as jewellery has shown bright on the catwalks this season too! We saw the resurgence of statement pendants at Balenciaga, Prada and Chanel, raw mineral gems at Givenchy, Christopher Kane and Stella MacCartney, ear-lobes full of wonders at Loewe, Proenza and Margiela and stunning structural cuffs at Courrèges and Louis Vuitton.

Christmas Gift Guide by Gemstone Meaning

By | Projects | No Comments

Jewellery has always had a special place in our hearts, be it a beautifully intricate adornment, found during the latest travels or a precious heirloom passed down from generation to generation. It has been given as a gift for centuries and every culture seems to have left its mark and added its own meaning to this precious object of art. For example, in medieval Europe jewellery was not only seen as a symbol of wealth and status, but believed to be a sacred amulet, protecting the wearer from harm and evil. To this day, wearing our lucky gemstone necklace or slipping on a pair of gorgeous gold earrings, gifted by our favourite grandma, makes us feel happy and unique.

Here at Ottoman Hands, we firmly believe in the special connection between the person and their gems. We think that vibrant semi-precious stones we choose for our handmade treasures have powerful energies and wonderful meanings, making for a truly meaningful Christmas gift. On this note, let us whisk you away on a journey of discovering our favourite gemstone wonders. The only thing left to do is decide which precious stone is perfect for you and your loved ones…
