I got invited by my new blog sponsor, Thomas Sabo, to see their 2014 collection at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Mega Mall. I’d always been curious about this brand. I am most familiar with its comprehensive line of charms that I often see at the Rockwell branch. Little did I know that this brand of sterling silver jewellery offered more than charms. They had some pretty serious bling.
Thomas Sabo is a lifestyle brand founded in Germany in the 1980’s. As one of the leading providers in the jewellery, watches and beauty segment, the lifestlye company is present in 66 countries on all five continents with around 132 stand-alone shops and 107 shop-in-shops.
I love that the charms are versatile because of its claw that you can attach to a bracelet or necklace. They also have charm carriers that hold up to three charms in one place. I’m particularly drawn to the Oriental Chic collection. I can’t resist an evil eye…
I initially wanted to get Lily a flower charm. I thought that was a lily but it turned out to be a star fish. The hummingbird is significant to our family because its the only bird that can hover. Thus it symbolizes my dad, the helicopter pilot. The daisy charm is for Stella whose second name Margarita is also a name of a type of daisy.
I got the mother of all pendants. This gorgeous sterling silver heart locket encrusted with pave cubic zircona from the Glam & Soul line.
Hinged-hoop earrings both in 925 Sterling silver – the one on right is 18K yellow gold plated. The stones are white zirconia and the discs are mother of pearl. These earrings work double duty. You can replace the discs with other charms.
The newest collection from Spring-/Summer 2014 is the THOMAS SABO “Karma Beads”: “Inspired by a positive attitude towards life and an appreciation of the beautiful things in life, the new jewellery range is a manifestation of positive energy. The key piece of the collection, the lovingly detailed ‘Wheel of Karma’ and the 72 different Karma Beads designs allow wearers to create diverse jewellery compositions that express any Karma style. Complementing the Karma Beads, THOMAS SABO has developed a new necklace and a bracelet crafted from 925 Sterling silver, opening up completely new creative possibilities.”
There are 72 different Karma Beads that you can choose to personalise your own jewellery. All available in Thomas Sabo branches in the Philippines.
This is how the Karma Beads are worn: The Beads, or the ‘Wheel of Karma’, are added to new bracelets and necklaces made from 925 Sterling silver, which are fastened by means of a bead element. The beads are added as desired, with stopper beads varying the position of the beads on the bracelet. You have the option of wearing it with just one bead or ‘fully loaded’ – the result is a personalized piece of jewellery.
