Inspiration from Hong Kong

I will be travelling non-stop for the next few weeks for work and pleasure.  First stop is Hong Kong!  Really look forward to meeting some business contacts and catching up with some old friends out there.

I will be saying hello from there soon.

For now, here’s a little inspiration – some of our favourite street style photos from Hong Kong.

Often Imitated, Never Duplicated.

Do you know what our one of a kind Eva bracelets have in common with you?

(scroll down for answer…)

 
The answer is: no two are the same.  
 
Express your individuality!
 

Happy Friday!

Style Inspiration: Lady Cameo

Love this picture of Giovanna Battaglia and her sweet cameo earrings.  She looks so classic and elegant, as always.

We have an unique cameo bracelet (Eva VI) that is Giovanna approve.  This cameo is specially lovely – it is not only beautifully carved, but also the lovely lady cameo wears a pearl necklace around her neck.  Amazing!

A Knight in Shining Armour

One of the best parts of my job at ROCAILLE is the discovery process – learning and understanding the history and meaning behind the vintage pieces we collect.  When designing a piece, we try to enhance the beauty of each find and tell a story.

This Zenobia necklace features an impressive vintage coat of arms crest, representing heritage, honor and strength.  It is truly a statement – a knight in shining armour!

The use of coat of arms became popular in Europe during the Middle Ages.  It was once used to identify the knights on the battlefield despite the armor that covered their identity.  Eventually it became a symbol of inherited social status.

For a Good Cause…

I attended a fundraiser hosted by CIBC Imperial Service Vancouver for the BC Children’s Hospital last night at the Loden Hotel in Vancouver.  To support the cause, we also created this special necklace based on our Desert Bloom collection for the silent auction.   It was great to see several ladies generously bid on the necklace, and one lucky one took home the prize.  🙂

 

 

As for me, I wore our Desert Stars necklace from our regular Desert Bloom collection to the event.
