Reasons Buy Wholesale Necklaces

Resale

Purchasing a wholesale necklace from a trusted supplier will allow you to have enough stock on hand to fill special orders that may come in, especially if similar handmade versions are too costly or time-consuming to create on your own. Reselling such finds will also allow you to take advantage of niche clientele, like those wishing to purchase vintage items. For those who do possess a creative streak, you can also offer customization of these pieces, to make each sale a unique purchase, by adding flair according to a customer’s wishes.

Party Favors

Another market in which such items are gaining in popularity is the party supply business. Using necklaces like these as party favors has become a very popular gift these days, especially for showers and birthday parties. Purchased with the customer’s needs in mind, you can also customize these orders as well, to match school colors for graduation parties, or for a special holiday get together, like Christmas or Mardi Gras.

Stocking Stuffers

Speaking of Christmas, there is always a customer base that will be looking for stocking stuffers, and these items are perfect for the purpose. Even if you are not heavily into running your own jewelry business, but have a lot of people to buy for, wholesale lengths of jewelry can be an affordable way to make sure that everyone gets a little something to brighten their holiday experience.

To Be Used As Components

Finally, for the fledgling jewelry maker, buying lengths of beads that are pre-strung is an affordable way to lay in supplies for their projects. Many of these wholesale strings can be broken down, and the beads used to create other items, like earrings, bookmarks or wine charms. For the savvy entrepreneur, buying wholesale also means that you can easily break them down, repackage and sell them as components to other crafters, at reasonable costs.


Larimar Necklace

The entire collection of jewelry designed for the upcoming season, including bangles, earrings, bracelets, pendants, chains, etc will be giving ladies a wider option to choose from. However, this upcoming prom season has some different things to offer. The focus this season is on necklaces. Necklace jewelry comes in a wide variety of shapes, colors, price and more, making it the best companion for ladies. No matter of your race, color, and economy, you will definitely find a necklace that suits you best.

Chokers are expected to do exceptionally well this prom. These are tight fitting necklaces worn high on the neck and can consist of one or more bands around the neck. Chokers generally vary between 14 to 16 inches in length and can be adjusted accordingly to the thickness desired. The best thing about chokers is that they suit best for long and slender necks as well as short necks. A thick choker with some diamond pendant is the best for a long neck while a slender one with a small and elegant stud compensates for a shorter neck. In short, whatever is the body type, chokers suite all.

One of the latest incorporation in chokers and necklaces is Larimar, a brilliant blue gemstone. Larimar is rare and exclusive because of the fact that it is found in a small inaccessible region in the Dominican Republic. Though Larimar is one of the latest additions in the list of exclusive gemstones, it is doing wonderfully especially when necklace jewelry is concerned. Its color, shape, magnificence, splendor–all makes it one of the most wanted gemstone.


Prom Jewelry For Under $10

Silver and gold bangles are very in style right now and, if you keep an alert eye, don’t necessarily have to cost you an arm and a leg.  You can easily find gold and silver-plated bangles for under $10.  The best part about these bracelets, is that they can be worn more than once and won’t wind up sitting in your daughter’s jewelry box un-used.  They are perfect for every-day wear and can create a put-together look with even the simplest outfits.

Cocktail rings are another great way to spice up your daughter’s prom ensemble.  They can be bought in a wide variety of matching shapes, sizes, and colors and shouldn’t cost you more than $10.  Of course, if you buy a cocktail ring that is made of sterling silver, it will run a bit more expensive.  If you are spending more than $50 for a sterling silver cocktail ring, you’re spending too much.

Chandelier earrings are, apparently, an undying trend.  These earrings have been popular for at least five years now and the fad hasn’t dwindled.  This is good news for you, because Chandelier earrings are another accessory, that can be rather inexpensive when you shop smart.  Look for newer designs like teardrop chandelier earrings, or earrings that feature simple crystals on a drop chain.  This look is very popular and elegant, and has been worn by many celebrities, such as Angelina Jolie.

Last but not least, the hottest new trend are bib necklaces, or statement necklaces.  Michelle Obama was recently spotted wearing a statement necklace with her fabulous fuschia pencil dress.  These necklaces feature a mish-mash of metal twigs, pearls, crystals, and every other material you can possibly think of, all interwoven into the same necklace.  This type of necklace would look absolutely smashing with a strapless gown or something that has a very simple neckline.  If you shop big, a necklace like this can cost you well over $200 at stores like J. Crew.  But if you shop smart, you can find a fashion necklace for less than $10!


Clothes For All Seasons

Women, on the other hand, will always plan the clothes they have according to what they already have in their wardrobe and what colors they think they need. There are so many different factors that go into shopping for women. One thing that troubles a lot of women is that all the good products are taken as soon as the season begins. This means that if you were to go to a shop in the middle of a season, you will be at a disadvantage as far as diversity of models is concerned. If you are a woman who faces this problem, read on.

Basic Jewelry Wardrobe

Pearls are indeed an important part of your basic jewelry wardrobe, and they are more affordable in their many forms today than ever before. Naturally, traditional pearls are the most basic when in white. There are many colors available, dyed and natural, but starting with a white strand is the most practical.

When we think of the simple strand of white pearls, whether we are aware of it or not, we are thinking of the Japanese Akoya pearls. There are called “Akoya” because the pearls grow in an oyster called “Akoya.” The cost of Akoya pearls are driven by many factors, including the fact that only 2-4 pearls can grow in each oyster. There was a time when only the Akoya oyster was producing good quality, round pearls suitable for strands, but that is no longer the case.

In the last 30 years, the Chinese have developed the harvesting of a freshwater mussel that can produce 40-50 pearls per mussel. With this industry’s improvements, strands of freshwater pearls are available for far less money than the traditional Akoya pearls, without the need of loss in luster, color or quality.

The variance of quality in freshwater pearls, however is vast. Therefore, it is important for you to go to a reputable jewelry store to pick out pearls. The store should be able to show you at least a couple of different qualities in each category to help you see a better and lesser quality. Also, they should have Akoya and freshwater pearls to show you, so you can make comparisons between these two categories.

Don’t forget pearl stud earrings as part of your Basic jewelry wardrobe. You might want to purchase pearl studs at the time you purchase your strand. This way, you are sure that they will match. There is a surprising amount of difference between pearls. If you plan on getting the earrings on another trip, bring your purchased strand with you to ensure a good match.

There are different standard lengths of pearls to consider for your jewelry wardrobe. Consider what will serve you best. The princess length, 17″-19″ and the opera length, 26″-36″ are the most popular. There also are the collar, 12″-13″; the choker, 14″=16″; and the rope, 37″ or longer.

Prom Masquerade

A floor-length ball gown is sure to make any woman feel extremely glamorous at a masquerade ball. BUT – in 2013, short is a really hot trend – You will be seeing ballerina-inspired dresses out there that make for a fun and fanciful party dress. Also trending are cocktail dresses.

For those who are more ambitious to make a statement, a waistcoat, tailcoat jacket, antique shirt and britches are a great compliment to your mask. You can add any of these elements with your suit to make a statement. Men favor renting part or all of their attire, this can be an excellent choice.

How do you create a great ensemble for a beautiful appearance?

For a tried and true look… go with black, white, pearl, silver or gold. These are classic choices and easy to pull together with confidence and panache!

You cannot go wrong with classic black. All ladies are able to pull off this look with grace. Black with touches of gold or silver will make you look slender, sultry and classic.

Not a costuming genius but want to push yourself a tad? To edge out a bit from a safe color palette to something more bold and striking – take a look at runway photos to learn from the pros on how to coordinate tones – see how they match cool tones to make stunning a combination. Example: cool teal tone set with luster against cool silver mask… the colors play off of one another nicely and allow your face to become the center of attention.

A stylist will match hot to hot – the warmth of the mask will be complimented by warm tones of the gown. This is a relatively simple task of keeping warm tones together in a range of the same color. Realize that satin dresses and dresses with sparkle fabrics that are all the rage this year will give off different hues when different types of light strikes them.

Contrasting tones can work well together. If the dress glitters let it inspire a mask that blends to the dress. For a great effect let the feather color of a mask pick up a color of the dress. Have blue eyes? Let them be the center of attention with a blue mask.


Military Coats and Jackets

These coats and jackets have durability rarely seen in items destined for the high street. A naval jacket can withstand every thrown at it by the high seas, from gallons of salt water to gale-force winds. An authentic army trench coat can keep the wearer warm in the coldest winter weather, survive through muddy conditions yet still come back in pristine condition after a simple wash. Many of the items being produced for today’s armies are being designed for warmer climates where heat, sand and minimal opportunity to wash clothing is the norm. Camouflage colours are now lighter coloured and more suitable for leisure outfits than the dark greens and browns of older garments, so the future of retro military fashion seems secure for many years to come.

Of course there are many types of military coat, some designed with practical usage in mind, but there is also the ceremonial aspect of the armed forces to look at. Many countries place great sway on the custom and tradition and parades, ceremonies and mass displays play a great role. It is on these occasions that military clothing takes on a whole new angle. Braided tunics complete with epaulettes and shiny buttons look fantastic on the parade ground, but also as a foundation for an outfit with a twist. Stars of popular culture such as Michael Jackson, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Cheryl Cole and Jimi Hendrix all turned to military tunics at some point to embellish their stage wear. The interesting point here is that these items are available to everyone in your local vintage clothing store of army surplus store. Of course not every outlet will stock the very best of these items, particularly as they are highly sought after and command equally high process for the very best garments. If you want the best in military jackets or ceremonial wear you may need to visit the premium vintage clothing stores or a specialist ceremonial wear outlet.


Chiffon Dresses

The Maxi Dress And The Mini Dress

Chiffon dresses are perfect for hot summer days and come in two basic styles; the long “maxi” dress and the short “mini” dress. Both of these dresses are a staple of summer as they are cool, flowing and flattering.

They will keep you cool in summer creating a gentle flowing breeze as you walk and will bring an air of grace and elegance with your every step.

Perfect For Weddings

This dress will look fabulous on any figure in your bridal party. It is the type of dress that will give confidence to even the shyest bridesmaid. With its easy glamour and effortless beauty your bridesmaids will look sensational on your special day and the epitome of femininity in these beautiful dresses.

However, these dresses are not limited only to the bridesmaids; they can be worn by the bride, the bridesmaids and even the mother-of-the-bride with equal amounts of elegance and glamour. Chiffon is ageless and can add a touch of chic to any woman, young or old.

Choosing The Right Color

Although chiffon can be done in prints and bright colors, it is often at its best and most elegant when used in plain and monochromatic color schemes. Its simplicity and elegance stands out and makes you feel as if you are walking on a red carpet all the time.

Depending on the occasion, you can either choose pastels in shades of peach, pink or grey for a wedding party, or go for the bolder red, black or sapphire blue for a special evening ball or prom.

Color is always a matter of personal taste, however, if you choose a style and shade that is timeless, like black for example, you can get many years of wear out of your chiffon dress and by dressing it up or down with trendy accessories you will never look the same twice.

Feel Like A Princess

The Chiffon dress is every young girl’s dream dress. Raised on Disney’s Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and all the fairy princesses, every little girl dreams of owning a dazzling chiffon dress. Luckily, chiffon dresses for women have become a fashion staple and are easily available either from your local boutique or online, so now there is no reason why every woman shouldn’t own a fabulous chiffon dress to make her feel like the princess she deserves to be.


Using the Dressing Room

It is important to have a goal in mind when entering the clothing store. Will the clothes being purchased be used for a specific event, work, or casual wear? Having this objective in mind will help make the purchasing decision easier. Furthermore, take a look at your closet before you leave so that you know which clothing items you already have and which items could be potentially paired with new items of clothing.

If you find an item of clothing that you like and fits well, be sure to check the tag. Knowing what type of fabric the garment is made of will let you know not only if it will shrink later, but also if the garment has any special washing instructions. Some items maybe dry clean only, hand wash, or require other special laundry instructions. It is also a good idea to scrunch up a small bit of fabric to see how the clothing handles wrinkles. All these factors contribute to how the garment will look and feel and will likely determine how frequently the garment will be worn in the future.

It is also important to take note of some of the physical aspects of the dressing room design. Many retail dressing rooms like to employ the use of slanted mirrors which can give you the illusion of looking thinner. Three way mirrors are always preferred as they allow you to see yourself from different angles. At the very least, try to get an additional view of yourself from behind by using a front facing camera on a cell phone or mirror from a compact in conjunction with the mirror that is in the fitting room. This alternative look at yourself will give you a better overall impression of how the clothing fits.

When you are inside the fitting room, take a look at the overhead and wall lighting. Many retail stores underestimate the importance of fitting room lighting, and the wrong lighting can potentially cost a sale. Lighting that is too bright can wash out the colors of clothes and if the light is too dim colors won’t appear bright enough. Furthermore, the light should be centered a short distance away from the mirror and not focused on the door, racks, or bench.
