​Wear your moods; express with stones

Published

on

Humans are amazing beings that find different ways to express themselves. In everyday lives, there’s always a way to communicate individuality, creativity, and personality.

This is true with the things we wear—hell, even our underwear says a lot about character. Fashion, in a sense, is a form of communication and expression, and people find different ways to show themselves through the things worn.

There’s a great way to combine personality, moods and fashion through stones. Stones, coming from the earth, in all its natural form, brings out a type of energy that becomes one with the person wearing the stone. Stones evoke a type of energy that brings out moods, energies, memories, and oneness with nature.

 It is through this ideology that a group of friends created the accessory brand Calypso, inspired by the Greek nymph who is known for her unique and timeless beauty. Starting in 2013, the founders conceptualized the design and composition of stylish fashion bracelets, made of stones from the earth.

Looking through the stone bracelet market, there aren’t much choices for the poignant fashionista. Living up to the adage from the famous French designer Yves Saint Laurent, “Accessories are what, in my opinion, pull the whole look together and make it unique.”

Beauty and Substance 

Established since 2013, this accessories brand has collections for everyone, him and her, and all-time favorites in their repertoire of bracelets for the fashionistas. Their promise? “Real stones for real people.”

And how real can one get if not with diamonds and stones? Bracelets that can be worn by both men and women alike, fitting any gender and style, and goes well with anyone who has sensible fashion.

With stones made of charms, volcanic stones, gems, Lokai (silicone bracelets) among others, with their stylish items that come in many themes and designs, with a purpose of bringing people together, gift-giving, or simply adding on a little spice on anyone’s wardrobe. A purpose for every piece

There are specific collections for men and women, but the beauty is that each piece has its androgynous touch to it. We find that when people wear what we have, then we feel like a part of that person, which is why wedding bands and other accessories symbolize partnership between people or groups.

The Apollo Bracelet, made from semi opaque colored acrylic beads with matte finish has a black and white color theme, signifying the best and worst moments in life which reminds us of the “yin and yang” of life.

The Greek Bracelet collection comes with two bracelets—Santorini and Roman Bracelets. This collection, made of Snowflake stones, brings a certain balance to the body, mind and spirit, as well as Lava stones which has a calming effect to the emotions. The classic black makes an aesthetic and substantial addition any wardrobe.

For a softer touch, bracelets made of Rose Quartz and Coral stones are from the Roman collection. With a combination of the two stones, the stylish Red/Pink and white gives a more feminine feel to it. The stone, coral, gives the user the power to stand ground and tame the temptation.

Besides the western influence of Italian and Roman, there are Japanese-themed designs as well coming from the New Era collection. This androgynous collection shows the ingenuity of oriental culture, from the traditional Eastern culture to today’s Harajuku, Aoyama, Ginza, Odaiba, Shinjuku and Shibuya street fashion, that can be a stylish staple in everyday wear.

So go ahead and indulge yourself in the beauty of nature, get your own Calypso bracelet today. For more information on Calypso bracelets, you may check their website here.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Manila Wrestling Federation – the hottest and fastest-rising live entertainment spectacle in Metro Manila – continues its unique blend of athleticism and “AksyoNovela” storytelling into its next major live presentation, “MWF 5: Todos Los Wrestling”, to be held at the UP Bahay ng Alumni, Diliman, Quezon City on October 28, Sunday.

Fresh from a victory over his mentor, Singapore wrestling star “The Eurasion Dragon”, the “Pride of Sagada” Mr. Lucha has waged war against “Mr. Philippine Wrestling” Jake De Leon from Philippine Wrestling Revolution (PWR). This heated rivalry leads to a historic cross-promotional 3-on-3 elimination tag team match with the “Motor City Angel” Chris Panzer and “Wrestling Lord and Savior” John Sebastian.

The heart-pounding MWF Championship Tournament continues with the final four: the brash and obnoxious Morgan Vaughn takes on the street bully Fabio Makisig, as the high-flying Robin Sane goes head-to-head with the ruthless and vicious “Danger” Rex Lawin. Who among these men will be the first-ever MWF Champion? As an added attraction, a wild and eccentric cinematic adventure titled “Sagot Kita 5: Stryke, Rattle and Roll” will premiere at the event, starring MWF’s resident action hero Gigz Stryker and his trusty sidekick RG.
