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!

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.

How to Best Accessorize Two Wardrobe Basics

- Sunday, October 20, 2013

Every well-dressed woman knows a certain style secret: her wardrobe must have plenty of standard staples that can be worn with a wide variety of other pieces. The savvy female fashionista always makes sure that her closet contains plenty of basics, no matter how trendy the rest of her clothes are. The key is knowing how to change the look of these staples using the right accessories like bold scarves and chic jewelry.

Accessorizing is an art form, but it’s one that is easily mastered. To help you become more style savvy, we’ll take the two most common wardrobe staples and show you the best ways to accessorize them. Before you know it, you’ll be mixing and matching like you were born to be a style queen.

1. Whether she’s a posh professional or a beachy Bohemian, practically every woman’s wardrobe has a plain white button-up top. Crisp, clean and classic, this staple will never go out of style. Investing in one of these means having an array of wardrobe options for life since there are tons of ways to style them. Here are just a few suggestions:

- Keep it classic and wear your button-up with black pants, oxfords and a sleek black blazer. Add our Hand Brushed Lariat in Natural Leather or the Oblong Pave Nugget in Matte Gold.

- Go boho and wear it with a fringed denim skirt, strappy sandals and a Zig Zag Bangle layered with other skinny gold and silver bangles. Finish it off with a Gold Wave Necklace.

- For a casual-chic look, wear your button-up with jeans and ankle boots. Tie a printed scarf around your neck and use a statement ring to bring out the scarf’s hues. We love our Blossom Ring in Rose Quartz and our Deco rings for adding a pop of sophistication to this casual look. If it gets cold, layer on a long cardigan.

2. What closet would be complete without a little black dress? We realize there are many models of this timeless treasure, but to get the most versatility, we recommend getting a classic, simple silhouette with short or long sleeves rather than a fancy embellished or asymmetrical LBD. That way you can get several awesome ensembles out of one key piece.

- For a casual day out window shopping or perusing the Farmer’s Market, add a long cardigan and a printed pair of ballet flats to your dress. Layer our Moon Charm Necklace with a plain gold chain to add a little boho style jewelry to the mix.

- Wear your LBD to the office or a professional event by adding a colorful scarf, a posh jacket or blazer, and a pair of color coordinated pumps. We like red, emerald green and bold shades of blue best with black, but any color combination works. Finish off the ensemble with a pair of Faux Bois Wave Earrings. Simple jewelry paired with bold accessories make every woman look well-dressed.

- Get glammed up for date night by wearing your LBD with a pair of strappy heels, Green Beryl Drop Earrings and a Pave Ball Bangle. Don’t forget to carry a chic clutch!

All That Glitters

- Friday, September 27, 2013

Jewelry trends come and go, but gold is forever in style. Classic, chic and effortlessly elegant, this metal is precious for a reason. Every woman, regardless of style or skin tone, looks great wearing gold jewelry. It’s a hot celebrity jewelry trend because of its timeless versatility, and slipping on a few gold pieces makes us all feel a little bit Hollywood.

We’re pretty proud of the gold pieces at Pame Designs and there’s no way we could ever choose a favorite. From our boho style necklaces to our trendy bracelet designs, we’ve got enough gold jewelry to accommodate any style. Even if you tend to stock up on silver, you should consider giving gold a try. The following five pieces are some of our best-loved picks.

Our Gold Cut-Out Cuff is one of our most popular pieces of celebrity jewelry. Spotted on Kristin Davis and several lovely ladies from E! News, this is one piece you’ll want to wear again and again. It’s versatile enough to be dressed up or down and looks perfect when paired with a casual sweater and jeans or an elegant dress. You can also layer this cuff with a set of skinny bangles to add a trendy touch.

Any woman who loves to make a statement will love our Deco Ring with Lapis Lazuli. Bold blue is certainly in style right now, but you can rock this ring for years to come. The Lapis Lazuli shimmers against the gold-plated pewter setting, making this art deco piece a true statement ring. The Deco Ring is also available with Green Moss Agate stones.

Those who prefer more demure accessories will love the way our Gold Wave on Leather looks. 14kt gold-filled metal and natural leather combine to create one of our most wearable—and affordable— jewelry designs. It’s so versatile that you can sport the Gold Wave on Leather with a business suit or a bikini and it will never look out of place. It’s available in the small size with a 15.5” length or the larger 16” length.

Our Bohemian beauties and beach lovers adore the gold Driftwood Necklace. You’ve got to love a piece of beach jewelry that was inspired by the beautiful ocean shores of Mexico. The pewter driftwood is dipped in gold and adorned with crystals to create a subtle shimmer. The Driftwood Necklace shines its brightest in the summertime, but it wears well in any season.

The gorgeous Tatyana Ali is one of many fans of our Faux Bois Wave Earrings. Talk about versatile accessories—this pair looks perfect during the day and finishes off an evening ensemble with a pop of shimmer from the pave crystals. If you don’t own a go-to pair of earrings you can add to your outfit on your way out the door, these beauties may be your best bet.

The History of the Bangle

- Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Bangle bracelets are pieces of chic jewelry we love for their versatility and the way they add style to an entire outfit simply by hugging the wrist. But even though we love designing and wearing bangles, we certainly didn’t invent them. In fact, the bangle has an interesting history that dates back to ancient history.

The word “bangle” originated from the word Bangari, which means glass. Since the earliest bangles were made from metal, not glass, the term came later (around 500 BC) during the Roman Empire when glass melting got more advanced. The origination of the bangle is unknown, but they have been excavated from many archaeological sites throughout India. A figurine of a dancing girl wearing bangles was even excavated from Mohenjo-daro and dates back to 2600 BC!

These days, bangles are still a big part of the culture of South Asia. Single women sometimes wear bangles, but married women are expected to wear them. It’s common to see brides wearing glass bangles on their wedding day in Bangladesh, where it is said that the honeymoon ends when the last bangle breaks. So the next time you’re sporting a set of bangles with your outfit, just think—you’re emulating the style of millions of women throughout history.

Reasons to Love Oxidized Brass Jewelry

- Friday, September 13, 2013

It may have roots dating back to prehistoric times, but when it comes to current jewelry trends, brass is a modern favorite. We prefer the more vintage look of oxidized brass for our boho style jewelry, and it appears we’re not alone. Oxidized brass jewelry has been spotted on celebrities and civilians all summer. In addition to the way it looks, the oxidized brass will help your jewelry last longer.

Brass oxidation occurs naturally over time, but man-made oxidation usually yields better results. Since oxidation is a natural means of slowing down the corrosion process of brass, your jewelry will stay beautiful and wearable for many years to come. Our Oxidized Brass Oblong Pave Nugget makes a great go-to accessory because of its versatility and subtle shimmer. If you haven’t yet tried this jewelry trend, try our Venice Cuff in Oxidized Brass and see why we love it.
