Modern Victoria
Modern Victoria
Inspired by English styles of the 1960s and baroque design of the 1700s, Modern Victoria takes classic styles and reworks them with an additional element of modern flare. Muted colors such as taupe and bronze are accented by vibrant reds, purples, blues and greens to create electrifying accents. Classic velvet shades such as violet, brick red and ochre add a touch of sumptuous style.
The jewelry is classic and displays a modest level of opulence. Cabochon jewels and rhinestones are combined with layered chains and faceted crystal. Oversized pendants and pearl chokers evoke an element of dramatic flair. Gold embroidery and family crests add a touch of regal beauty that is sure to inspire fabulous designs, while damask patterns and braids evoke a more sophisticated appearance.

Metropolitan Mystery
Metropolitan Mystery
With Metropolitan Mystery, the combination of elegance and professional class creates a confident look for the woman on-the-go. Grays and browns are accented by vibrant oranges and pinks for a subtle, yet powerful touch of color. Wool flannel, tweeds and suede are the fabrics of choice, with herringbone and houndstooth patterns offering sophisticated details.
Jewelry and accessories are also sleek and strong. Layered gunmetal chains and strands of jet crystals enhance the feeling of professional elegance while ball drop earrings offer a refined accent. Necklaces consisting of long pendants hanging from leather and suede cord are essential, adding to the simple yet powerful aesthetic.

    Since more and more companies are using sales promotions in order to
    win consumers, it is highly essential for companies to develop integrated promotion strategies, i.
    The rate of real estate transfer tax is 8% where the market value is up to EUR 20,000, with any excess taxed at 20%.
    This might be a little more expensive than the other token gifts mentioned in this article but they are still a great idea
    if you want to target a slightly smaller group.
