Jewellery Trends and New Products

by

According to InStyle magazine, Things Engraved is on TOP of some of the latest trends in jewellery. Okay, they don’t mention us directly (they DO mention Selena Gomez, Diane Kruger, and Olga Kurylenko, and while we don’t regularly hang out with those stylish women, we like to THINK we are in the same league…hey, a girl can dream, right?)

Want to see some of our new on trend jewellery? I thought you might (by the way, you can click on the photos to go right to the product pages, so you don’t have to search them out yourself):

Bar Necklaces and Rose Gold

Just like Kate Hudson or Rose Bryne, our bar necklace is the perfect accessory for almost any outfit or look. It is perfect for customizing with engraving and showing off your style. ADD to that, we are offering a rose gold bar necklace – rose gold is yet another popular trend in jewellery. Our Genevieve First Blush rose gold necklace is ALWAYS selling out. It is such a great price point for such a lovely design. We also have the Rose Gold & Silver Heart Flip Necklace which is also very popular.

Bangles

At this years SAG awards, celebrities Amy Poehler, and Kaley Cuoco Sweeting were all wearing bangles. Taylor Swift is frequently photographed with some sort of bracelet, often stacked on her arm. Now, maybe their versions were worth more than your mortgage payment, but that is okay. We are here to help you with this trend at a more affordable price point. Alone, or stacked up your arm, bangles are a classic look that will also work with any outfit. Here are our new bangles AND some of our classics that have always been popular with our customers.

We even have a bangle for babies (not to mention ID bracelets, charms and pearls for babies and kids).

Going along with the bangle trend, charms are hotter now than they have ever been.. Some of our new bangles come with a charm on them already. We also carry the Rembrandt Charms, which we are happy to tell you are made right here in Canada.

Personalized Jewellery

InStyle Magazine reports that celebrity moms are obsessed with personalization on their jewellery. From initials, to letters or messages, celebrities like Christina Applegate, Charlize Theron and Kourtney Kardashion are all on this trend (now you know one simple way you can be JUST like the Kardashions! Well, if that was your dream LOL). It can’t be any real surprise that we offer TONS of ways to follow this trend, so let me show you just a few. Pearls and gold tones are ALSO on trend. Perfect!

 Classics

These are the ones that never seem to go out of style. Dog Tags and Id Bracelets will fall into this category. Just Google “celebrity dog tags” and you can see people like Rhianna, Kristin Stewart, Ben Affleck, and Chris Hemsworth wearing them. I also found some random Guess models sporting dog tags at a photo shoot. ID bracelets are something that have been around for-EVER. I saw some on Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez. Selena actually shows up for LOTS of these trends. No surprise since she always looks great!

Hopefully you will be inspired to update your summer jewellery looks, or gift someone else with something from this list of ideas. I am personally crazy for bracelets, so many of these pieces are right up my alley, which makes me very happy.

AND Ryan Gosling LOVES personalized  jewellery…

Hey girl,

(Was that a bit much? Nah, I think that is just about right).

These jewellery ideas might be on the current trends lists, but ALL of them are simple and classic enough to stand the test of time.

Promposal Ideas

by

Going to prom is a HUGE part of the high school experience, and over the past few years, the ways to ask someone to the prom have been elevated with the promposal trend.  Have you heard of this yet?

The promposal can be simple, elaborate, and everything in between. It’s a chance to be creative, and to make prom an extra special memory for you both. Looking for some ideas? Pinterest is a treasure trove of promposal ideas.

Lots of promposals are of the simple and less flashy variety. Not everyone wants to make a public declaration of a desire to wear fancy clothes, corsages and dressy shoes that will inevitably be kicked off by 10pm. A simple gesture for a promposal can be just as memorable and sweet.

Recently, someone ordered this bracelet through our online store and we just loved it! What a great way to ask someone to attend prom, and give them a gift that will keep the memory alive for them every time they wear it.

Consider an engraved gift with YOUR promoposal. Pretty much any of our stunning gifts could work.  Create a keepsake, and you never know…maybe even a family heirloom!

Blog Review: Christmas Gifts!

by

We’re so excited to be featured in BC Mom‘s Holiday Gift Guide!  Read the detailed review of our gifts on BC Mom’s blog here or below:

Things Engraved, Personalized gifts for the Holidays! #giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

Things-Engraved

Raise your hand if you are the perfect gift giver. The one who shops 6 months in advance, always has the perfect, sentimental gift on hand, painstakingly created and shipped with ample time for the holidays. You spend December relaxing in front of the fire, sipping egg-nog and watching Christmas movies without a stress in the world during the holidays.

Anyone? Yeeea…. I’m not one of those either. I love giving personalized gifts but it is a challenge to find the PERFECT gift every year and find by the time I have decided what I want, it is too late to order it. I end up settling and this year I want something that won’t be forgotten about as soon as the holidays are over.

I’ve had amazing success ordering my Christmas gifts from Things Engraved and we are thrilled to include them in our Holiday Gift Guide!

Things Engraved Bracelet

Things Engraved shipped Alivia & I a surprise box, we had no idea what was coming in this box, it was definitely a thrill! When it arrived, Alivia helped me carefully unwrap everything and was very excited to see her name on so many things! She was very excited to hold her Princess ornament with her name on it, to wear her beautiful customized bracelet and to know that when it was time to take off her bracelet, she had a special box (just for her!) to store it in. They really thought of everything for us and included a beautiful engraved keychain locket that I am so excited to fill with this year’s Holiday photos.

We were impressed by the weight of the Christmas ornaments, they are solidly made to last and include a matching ribbon tie, making them ready to hang on the tree the moment you open the box. Things Engraved also offers a variety of different fonts to personalize your gifts so you can have a bit of fun matching them to your recipients personality!

In our box we received a girl’s ID bracelet with daisies, a princess trinket box and a silver locket keychain, these gifts are perfect for any time of year and the the ability to engrave a special message or name on them makes them a very cherished gift. We also received a purple tiara ornament, a sock monkey ornament and an owl ornament, engraved with both names and years they make the perfect gift to look back on each year as you trim the tree, adding a special ornament each year that commemorates any special events or celebrations makes for a one of a kind Christmas tradition.
