According to tradition, the colors of the U.S. flag had no official significance upon its creation. When the official seal of the United States of America was designed however, it was decreed that red was to signify hardiness and valor; white, purity and innocence; and blue would represent vigilance, perseverance and justice. What better ideals to celebrate this 4th of July?
In a letter to his wife the day before he signed the Declaration of Independence, future president John Adams predicted that Independence Day would be observed through the ages exactly as we do it today: with parades, fireworks and as much fun as possible. As you commemorate Independence Day with grand revelry and merriment as suggested by the great Mr. Adams, wear the bold and beautiful colors of red, white and blue with pride!
This year, pledge allegiance to the flag by creating a gorgeous charm bracelet, and wear it every 4th of July forward. Start with the timeless Silver Snap Bracelet—it’s the perfect chic and simple foundation. Then choose the accent charms that showcase your style. Our blue and red Jeweled Collection charms lend an air of elegance to your look, as Swarovski Crystal elements add sparkle. Whatever you choose, make it red, white and blue.
Have a beautiful 4th of July!
Sandcastles, sea glass, and grassy dunes… sand in your toes, coconut lotion on your shoulders, and waves crashing in your ears… could it be that the beach is the best place on earth? The waves roll in and out and the sun shines bright and true. Whether you’re basking in sweet solitude or reveling in family merry-making, the sea is an enchanted place.
Time stands still on the beach and that might just be its enchantment. Nothing ever really changes. The gorgeous colors, the blues, greens and corals always remain and your perennial favorite popsicle is never out of reach. You can add all the state-of-the-art gear you’d like, from fancy beach chairs to waterproof footwear, but in the end, it’s still just the water, the sand, the sky and you.
Honor the spirit of the beach with our Enchanted Sea Collection. With charms depicting everything from sea creatures to sandcastles, this collection brings to mind the perfect coastal getaway. Remember your family’s trip to the beach with the ultra-fun Patriot Pop charm, or evoke that feeling of solitude with the beautiful blue Swarovski Captivate charm. However you enjoy the beach, the Enchanted Sea Collection is sure to offer something perfect for you… and your memories.
The tulips have bloomed and your first veggies are on their way. The patio furniture has seen its first sit-down meal of hotdogs and potato chips. Yep, summer is here!

Watercolor is everywhere right now, and it’s perfect for the season. This pretty pastel blending can be seen in everything from elegant eveningwear to edgy hair color. It’s effortless to dress up or down and either way you’ll look simultaneously ladylike and laid-back.

Clean, crisp, classic—there’s nothing quite like all white in the summer. If all white is just too much for you, add an accent color to break it up. A bit of black will make it sleek, graphic and modern. Navy blue will lend a preppy, nautical feel and a touch of bright yellow will give it up-to-the-second cool.

Nostalgia and anticipation, accomplishment and imminent challenge, past and future. It’s graduation season! Whatever the next step might be—high school, college, grad school, or a career—for a graduate, this time of year is always a jumble of betwixt and between.
