Kapal-Laut Jewellery in Retail Therapy - Bali Advertiser
Can you believe, February is already on the horizon with two significant celebrations at hand, both popular times for gift giving - Chinese New Year from Thursday February 3 is Year of the ‘METAL’ Rabbit for more info Google it! & then we have, Valentine’s Day on Monday February 14. As you know the color RED is the traditional color for both celebrations.
So, as METAL is the focus for 2011, take a peek at what one notable jewelry retailer has in-store, offering contemporary pieces, which display excellent quality in sterling silver 925 & stainless steel.
Kapal-Laut jewelry that stands out, but ‘less is more’!
Firstly, what I like about these particular stores is a certain uniformity that greets one as you enter. Cool, fresh, white with plenty of mirror & open displays of all product atop black or white tables & shelves. This makes it so easy to try on (touch & feel) easy to decide, easy for you, the customer! No big cabinet displays or product hidden in numerous drawers, Kapal-Laut offers up to the minute visuals, a display of jewelry, set in complete ‘stories’ where many of the items are interchangeable with any number of other pieces & the best point of all is that this professional company, offers realistic & affordable prices!
The variety is extensive, & for the most part all items are hand-made. For instance, take the sterling silver product, there are many finishes made to the surface which gives a very different look to the item of jewelry, can be of a carved design, high polish, sandblasted & scratched.
One of the most popular pieces by these clever people is the very simple sterling silver wire loop earrings – with a stone, such as a blue turquoise, red coral, fresh water pearl, white bone, lava, agate & more, these earrings always look stylish & easy to wear. Cow bone perhaps, buffalo horn or wood is more your style - sono, ebony or ironwood. Coconut that has been sliced, onyx & coral, all pieces have been fashioned into great shapes.
For vintage inspired jewelry that you seek, take a look at the loveliest filigree or do some remember macasite (reminiscent of 20’s & 30’s) all pieces can be attached to your silver wire or chain. Kapal-Laut have a great ‘eye’ when designing, taking vintage looks & developing them into jewelry ‘for today’, such as the snake ring. Jewelry pieces these days can be classic, pretty, decorative, unusual, architectural, funky & original, a style that will suit your Valentine.
Amongst the silver on show, is a chic range of stainless steel bracelets (the Valentine man?) with leather & gold plate fittings, some bracelets feature rubber & steel.Handfuls of leather & suede ‘round’ strings for the neck for your fave pendant.
And amongst all the refinement of sterling silver & stainless steel, Kapal-Laut offer some fun & playful items, colorful hair accessories, hand-phone bling and tassels otherfun jewelry + cute purses & bags.
Kapal-Laut go all out to please their client, i.e. neck wires, rings & earrings, can be adjusted free of charge & replaced if required. There’s a ‘husband sofa’ for you ‘to park’ your partner, in the cool, so you can try-on to your heart’s content!
