Pamper Your Valentine With Pieces From Pame

- Thursday, January 23, 2014

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. The holiday of love falls on a Friday this year, so plan a special night out on the town with your sweetheart. Once you’ve made dinner reservations and ordered some roses from the florist, the only thing left to do is pick out the perfect gift. You can never go wrong with jewelry, of course, and our Boho style jewelry will be appreciated by any stylish maven.

We offer a large variety of jewelry designs, so finding the right piece for your special someone may not be easy. To help narrow it down, we’ll give you a glimpse of some of our most popular and versatile pieces. Go with your instinct, but know that any piece you pick will be appreciated. After all, the point is to let her know you care.

- If you’re on a budget, treat your trendy valentine to a Zig Zag Bangle. She’ll be able to stack it with skinny bangles or wear it alone as a casual everyday staple. This bangle is priced at $50 but it looks like it costs a lot more.

- One of our charm necklaces is also a solid budget-friendly pick. Choose from a Moon Charm Necklace, a Swirl Charm Necklace or a Star Charm Necklace. Any free-spirited fashionista will appreciate its simple, stylish design.

- Named especially for the upcoming holiday, the Valentine Freshwater Pearl Wrap is a chic choice for any woman who likes to wear pearls. Eight Freshwater pearls combine with a pewter heart on brandy-colored leather, hanging at 16” long (18” if you count the dangling heart). She can wear the Valentine Freshwater Pearl Wrap as a necklace, bracelet or a choker and it looks lovely in any season.

- Does your valentine have an urban, edgy style? Our Shipwreck Coin Replica Necklace will be right up her alley. If she’d rather have a cool piece of jewelry she can wear every day than a sophisticated special occasion piece, she’ll love the Shipwreck Coin Replica Necklace. It even comes with a backstory...the original piece was created with a coin from the Santa Maria De La Consolacion, an ill-fated ship that set sea across the Atlantic in 1681. While the story itself doesn’t have a happy ending, your sweetheart will surely enjoy wearing a replica of an artifact.

- If you want to wow your valentine with a more sparkly selection, pick out a pair of Pave Hoops in Rose Opal. Featuring gold-plated hoops and rose opal crystals, they’re one of our most in demand designs—and the best part is, they look like they cost a lot more than their $175 price tag. They’ve also been spotted on stylish A-list celeb Hayden Panettiere.

Remember, shipping on all orders is free—and, if this is your first time buying from Pame Designs, we’ll add a free Montauk Pebble Necklace as our way of saying thank you.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What Inspires You?

- Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Inspiration is all around us, that much is certain. But what inspires one may not inspire another. A writer may be inspired by overhearing a conversation, while a graphic designer might get inspired by the way tall blades of grass look. Each of us views the world through a different set of eyes, so different things will trigger those places in our minds that encourage us to create, move, take a chance or do whatever it is that we need to do.

Many of our boho style jewelry was inspired by natural elements. The appropriately named Montauk Pebble Necklace, recently featured in Nylon magazine, was inspired by the gorgeous oasis of Montauk, our Roman Glass Slice Necklace was inspired by the beautiful beaches of Mexico.

And while the ocean is perfect inspiration for all things beautiful, it’s not just the scenery that inspires our designer to create. Since Tahitian pearls are known for providing protection and good luck when you’re in the water, Pame Designs offers lots of beach jewelry that features them, such as the Triple Tahitian Pearl Wrap. The Oblong Pave Nugget, one of our most popular pieces. was inspired by some natural stones we thought would look better with a little sparkle.

For some, it’s not art that needs creating or jewelry that needs designing. Some people may need inspiration to do something they’ve resolved to do this year, like finding a new job or getting into shape. They may look to traditional places for inspiration, such as others’ success stories or motivational quotes. Or, something more serendipitous may may get inspired by a magazine cover, take a yoga class, fall in love with the practice and get into shape in the process.

The beautiful thing about inspiration is that it can guide you to living your best life, doing amazing things and having meaningful experiences. But to be inspired, you’ve got to know how to find inspiration. A few good ways are:

  • Try new things. Step outside of your comfort zone once in awhile. Take a dance class, try new recipes or start to learn a new language.
  • Take a camera out for a walk and photograph everything that looks beautiful to you.
  • Read books, blogs and articles about people who have overcome obstacles and achieved greatness.
  • Watch inspirational speeches, like TED talks.
  • Have coffee with your best friends and ask them what they’re most grateful for.
  • Listen to music that moves you.
  • Take a solo vacation, even if it’s just for a weekend.
  • Reflect on everything you’ve accomplished in life and think about how you got there.
  • Buy some new fashion magazines and pay attention to the colors and patterns you like the most.
  • Read about different periods of history and different cultures.

So… what inspires you?

Five Ways To Wear A Leatherette

- Friday, January 3, 2014

We believe that it’s perfectly acceptable to buy a piece of chic jewelry because you love it, even if it’s impractical or you can only wear it with one outfit. However, when it comes to our everyday accessories, versatility is vital. Our Leatherette is one of our most popular jewelry designs for that reason—not only can you wear it with practically any outfit, but it can be worn as a necklace, choker or a bracelet. Here are five ways you can rock your leatherette in any season:

1. Spruce up a long, cozy sweater and leggings by wearing your Leatherette as a double wrap necklace. Just wrap it twice around your neck for a mid-length necklace that’s sure to get noticed.

2. Accessorize a knit dress by wearing the Leatherette as a long necklace layered with a choker.  The small beads and pewter coins will add a subtle shimmer without overpowering your dress or the rest of your jewelry. 

3. Class up a casual t-shirt and jeans by wearing it as a bracelet. Wrapping it around your wrist will give you the look of several bracelets in one.

4. During summertime, the Leatherette looks amazing when worn as a choker with a beachy sundress and sandals.

5. Layer it on! The Leatherette can be worn with bangles, a cuff or other necklaces. Its versatility will make it the go-to piece of jewelry you always reach for.

Fresh, Fun Winter Outfit Ideas

- Sunday, December 29, 2013

As we end the holiday season and greet the new year, it’s natural to focus on fresh starts and setting goals. In addition to the standard New Year’s Eve resolutions (and the exciting style and beauty resolutions), it might be fun to go through your closet and jewelry box to see how many new outfits you can create from pieces you already own. If you’ve been living in sweaters and jeans all winter, break away from those standard staples and get creative with your separates and chic jewelry. With a little creativity, you can easily maximize the contents of your closet.

1. Sequins aren’t just for holiday parties! You can incorporate them into your everyday ensembles—even your work outfits! Try pairing a sequin skirt with a soft sweater, tights and ankle boots. Or, wear a sequin tank top with a blazer and jeans. Top off the look with a Zig Zag Bangle, which has a subtle shine that won’t distract from the sparkling sequins.

2. Wearing all black is chic and stylish, if it’s done right. Play with textures and pair a black leather peplum top with black skinny pants. From there you can add color with some bright heels and a bold handbag. Gold jewelry like our Wave Bangle looks especially elegant when worn with a black outfit, but we also like the colorful contrast the Turquoise Labradorite Wrap will provide.

3. Some of your sleeveless summer dresses may work for winter. Simply add leggings, a long cardigan and a scarf and you’ll have an outfit that’s ready for a cold day. Just make sure any jewelry designs you wear aren’t too summery.

4. Wearing white all winter is in style this year—but have you tried blending black and white yet? Take a white chunky sweater, add a black skirt, wear some white tights and a black hat and you’ll have a look that’s totally Parisian-chic.

5. Did you buy in to the tartan plaid shirt trend of Fall 2013? Try wearing it with a knee-length leather skirt, ankle boots and a set of Studded Bangles. The edgy femininity of the leather skirt will offset the Western look of the plaid perfectly.

6. Slip on a long-sleeved white button-up shirt under a sleeveless dress. Whether it’s a black, plaid or printed dress, it will add trendy texture without creating extra bulk.

7. If you have a graphic sweatshirt, pair it with a skirt instead of your standard jeans. Then add some decorative flats and some Hollywood jewelry. The creative combination will be the definition of casual-chic.

8. You know that light, faux leather motorcycle jacket you haven’t worn since early October? Start wearing it as your outfit’s top layer instead of as a coat. You’ll add instant edge to any ensemble.

As we enter the new year, spend some time digging through your closet and finding creative clothing combinations. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to settle for subpar style.

Style And Beauty Resolutions For 2014

- Friday, December 20, 2013

With less than two weeks remaining until we say hello to a brand new year, now is the time to focus on those 2014 resolutions. Oftentimes people focus on things like losing weight, saving more money or furthering themselves in their careers. And while those are all worthy and important goals, it’s also vital that we focus on the way we present ourselves to the world.

When we look good, we feel good. And when we feel good about ourselves, we’re much more likely to make positive changes in our lives and do nice things for others. Next year, try and develop your own personal sense of style—and if you’re already a fabulous fashionista, take your trendiness to new heights in 2014. Here are some ideas for style and beauty resolutions to inspire you:

1. Wash your face and moisturize before going to bed. Whether you’re 25 or 65, it’s very important to take care of your skin. Resolve to always wash your makeup off and slather on a good night cream.

2. Clean your makeup brushes at least every other Sunday. Bacteria and products can build up on your brushes easily, and it’s important to keep them clean.

3. Make an effort to learn at least one new makeup trend in 2014. Master the art of the smokey eye or finally learn to properly use liquid liner. Freshen up your face!

4. Expand your accessories collection. This could mean getting a few new scarves, buying a few belts or treating yourself to some Hollywood jewelry. Mixing up your accessories can alter the look of your entire outfit, so you’ll get more use out of your clothing.

5. Focus on your hands. So many women neglect their beautiful hands. Care for your cuticles, use lotion every day, get regular manicures and decorate those digits with some celebrity rings.

6. Break at least one fashion “rule” in 2014. These rules are made to be broken! Wear white after Labor Day, mix your prints… whatever makes you happy! Taking a risk once may inspire you to take more style risks in the future.

7. Learn to walk in high heels. Even if you’re a flats kind of girl, mastering the art of strutting in stilettos will make formal occasions less stressful.

8. Drink more water. This may not seem like a beauty or style resolution, but drinking more water throughout the day will make your skin glow and your skinny jeans fit.

9. Learn at least one new hairstyle in 2014. If you’ve got long locks, master the art of loose waves. If you have a bob, see if there’s a loose bun you can do. 

10. This one is obviously our favorite: treat yourself to one new piece of chic jewelry per month (or every other month if you’re on a budget). You deserve to replace those cheap trinkets with investment pieces you can wear for years to come.

Hot Holiday Beauty Trends For 2013

- Friday, December 6, 2013

It’s hard to believe it, but in a few short weeks we’ll be saying goodbye to the year 2013. In the meantime, we’ll head to plenty of parties, attend some charity functions and celebrate the holidays with our loved ones. The holiday season is the perfect time to upgrade your style to something a little more magical. From the hottest holiday hairstyles to the perfect accessories, we’ll give you some inspiration for looking your best this time of year.

Hair Trends

Braids were huge throughout the year, and the holiday season is no exception. Get creative with the braided updos you’ve been wearing since summer by embellishing them with sparkly clips or small combs. If you prefer to wear your hair down and you’ve got some length, wear it sleek and straight with some product that makes it shine.

The top knot bun is also still trendy. Make it more festive with some small side twists. Wearing your hair in a top knot will make sure no one misses your chic celebrity earrings.

If you’re heading to a cocktail party or a glamorous gala, give your hair a deep side part and add some tight curls. Shake them out with your fingers and you’ll have elegant retro waves. Pin a sparkly clip on one side of your head and wear a pair of our Pave Hoops.

Make-Up Trends

When it comes to holiday make-up, two classic trends come to mind: red lipstick and glittery eyeshadow. Both are beautiful and elegant, though it’s best not to wear them at the same time. But for the 2013 holiday season, the trend to try is gold metallic eyeliner. Wear it both above and below the eye with a neutral eyeshadow and practically any lipstick. 

For a lip color that will outlast every sip of champagne and every bite of sugar cookie, try a lip stain. Lip stains have stolen the scene this year, and they’re a perfect pick for the holiday season. Just make sure your lips are well moisturized before you apply, or try a dual formula that has a conditioning balm with the stain. Your color will last much longer that way.

Accessories Trends

This year’s holidays accessories have one thing in common: it’s all about the gold. Shimmery gold clutches, gold pumps and stilettos, gold watches and gold chains are the holiday party staples this year. Our gold Crushed Cuff With Green Moss Agate will add a chic shimmer to any winter ensemble, or you could complement your manicure with five golden rings.

2013 has been the year of ornate accessories, and the holiday season is known for its glitzy shimmer. So go ahead and pile on your best bling and your chic jewelry. Statement necklaces, chandelier earrings and unique bracelet designs are all popular picks this year. As always, just make sure to wear the accessories that best complement your outfit and make you

What To Wear To Thanksgiving Dinner

- Friday, November 22, 2013

If you’re not in charge of hosting Thanksgiving for your friends and family this year, be thankful that the turkey and trimmings are someone else’s project. Going to someone else’s home for Thanksgiving dinner means you get to relax and enjoy being a guest. And while it’s tempting to show up in stretchy sweatpants, the last thing you want to do is arrive underdressed.

Dressing up for Thanksgiving will vary quite a bit from person to person depending on their destinations and family atmosphere. But whether you’re enjoying a casual afternoon meal at a crowded table in your mom’s kitchen or a fancy evening five course soiree at your husband’s boss’s house, Thanksgiving is a fun opportunity to express yourself through your sense of style. We’ll give you three examples of Thanksgiving scenarios complete with ideas for stylish—and comfortable—ensembles.

Scenario: Dinner with the boyfriend’s family

Obviously you want to impress the people who may become your in laws, but you don’t want to come across as pretentious or stuffy, especially if
you’ve never met them. Unless you know them to be very formal people, jeans are fine as long as you dress them up. Wear a lacy camisole or a v-neck tee, a fitted blazer and a pair of pumps or ankle boots. Accessorize with some everyday chic jewelry like our soft Pink Pearl Choker or the 9 Freshwater Pearl Wrap. You’ll look so classically stylish and put-together you’ll win his mother over before she even tries your green bean casserole.

Scenario: Dinner at your parents’ place

No matter how long it’s been since you’ve lived with your parents, going home for the holidays may seem like a free pass to show up to Thanksgiving dinner in yoga pants and a sweatshirt. But this is not the case. You want your family to treat you like the mature adult you are, not the troubled teen you once were. Still, there’s no rule against dressing comfortably, especially when you know your mother will serve you a second helping of her famous mashed potatoes without you even having to ask.

Slip on a long sweater, a pair of leggings or skinny jeans and a pair of over-the-knee boots. Wear a chic scarf around your neck and add some celebrity jewelry, like the Cut-Out Cuff worn by Kristin Davis. Finish off the look with a pair of Pave Hoops and pull your hair into a comfortable up-do to show them off.

Scenario: Dinner with your best friends

Nothing beats sharing a holiday with your bff’s. A Friendsgiving dinner is the perfect time to wear an outfit that’s trendy but not outrageous or uncomfortable. Wear a classic sweater, a flared leather skirt, tights, and boots or flats. Give the ensemble some urban edge by adding the Shipwreck Coin Replica necklace. Finish it off with a bold berry lipstick and enjoy your food-filled ladies’ night.

The holidays are on the horizon and those party invitations have probably already started to arrive. Luckily, this week’s Pame Pick happens to be one of the best jewelry designs to wear to such a soiree. A holiday party is the perfect reason to break out the bling, and our Deco Ring with Lapis Lazuli is one sparkly statement maker. Enjoy either the silver or the gold Deco Ring for 30% off this week.

Our Deco Ring combines the look of modern art deco jewelry with organic, natural stones. Lapis Lazuli stones are set in gold or silver-plated pewter to create this chic jewelry. The combination of the two different elements makes the Deco Ring totally unique. This pretty piece has been featured in Aspen Sojourner magazine as an everyday elegant accessory. Not only does it make the perfect holiday party accessory, it will be just as wearable all summer long.
