This week’s look is nothing but blush pink from head to toe, accessorized in Stella Valle jewels (of course)! We’ve added to this sleek, simple look with pieces from our new Fall/Winter collection, Other Half. We are excited to launch this collection on our website on August 15th! We could not wait until then to share a little sneak peak of the pieces as well as the inspiration behind this collection because we love that it’s about love! Read about the Other Half Collection below:
For their collection, Other Half, the SV sisters found inspiration in love. While this notion of love sounds generic, it was the power of the nuptials of Paige to her husband Johnny and Ashley’s new found love in her husband, Jason, as the father to her daughter, Viviana that inspired the girls to reflect on these most important people in their lives.
The collection of halves was informed by the duality of husband and wife. The collection continues to take on architectural motifs of past pieces; in this collection, however, the geometry is not only a nod to both the sisters’ strength and military past, it is also a reference to their masculine counterparts. The look is balanced by feminine adornments of stone and crystal. Opulent black and white striped agate round stones are half enclosed by metal suggesting protection and warmth are at the forefront of their relationships. The sisters describe the inspiration:
“There isn’t a better way to define our husbands other than our “other half”. They get us, they fulfill us, they complete us. We look to them for logic, advice guidance, and sometimes a little nudge. Through our entrepreneurial journey, they’ve sacrificed more than most would tolerate, and they’ve supported our dreams. We could not have done this or life without them. We are forever grateful they chose us as their other half too! We dedicate each and every piece to them, their quirks, their uniqueness, and their ability to make us see things more clearly. While man and woman are often so different, we compliment and fit each other perfectly, just like the metal that cups the stone in each piece.”
The sisters encourage every woman in this world to seek this almost indescribable feeling of living life with the person who makes you better than you could have imagined – your better half!
Now that you’re feeling inspired to wear a piece close to your heart inspired by your better half, you can! Ashley wore the collection in all gold starting with her ears—she doubled up on our Hook Ear Cuff. The beauty about this piece is that it’s a 3 in 1 earring! If you’re feeling a little more simple you can wear just the agate stone alone, or on your more daring days, add the chain to ear cuff. You can always just wear the ear cuff alone too—how fun, right?! On her fingers she stacked a few rings because she couldn’t just wear 1 ring when they are this cute;) Our Forever ring and Soulmate midi rings are such appropriate names to represent your loved ones. Ashley’s last accessory to complete her look was our Unconditional bracelet.
Paige loves a good ear party doubling up on the One and Only earring in silver. Lining her neck is the beautiful You Complete Me necklace to remind her that she isn’t whole with out her better half, Johnny! Paige added the same fun rings Ashley did to represent her forever bond with her sister and business partner who is definitely her BETTER HALF!
Get ready to keep your other half close with a piece from our new collection, coming to stellavalle.com on August 15th!
Lots of Love,
Ashley & Paige
