What is a Victorian Elegance™ Bracelet Connector, and how do I use it?

If you've ever tried to fasten a bracelet on yourself, you know how time consuming and cumbersome it can be, if not completely impossible with some bracelets. A Victorian Elegance™ Bracelet Connector is designed to make fastening your bracelet with one hand simple and fast. Instructions are included with your bracelet, or see instructions below.

1. Fasten the hook end of the Bracelet Connector to the bracelet at the end without the clasp.
2. Place the decorative end between your fingers with the decoration on your palm as in the picture. The bracelet will hang down behind your hand.
3. Grasp the clasp of the bracelet with your free hand and wrap it clockwise* around your wrist until the clasp meets the end of the bracelet**.
4. Hook the clasp of the bracelet into the end of the bracelet.
5. Take the decorative end of the Bracelet Connector out of your hand and disconnect the hook of the Bracelet Connector from the end of the bracelet.
* Some bracelets may fasten easier by wrapping counter-clockwise.
** Decoration on the Bracelet Connector can go between any fingers. If it wraps too tight to fasten, moving it to different fingers will loosen it.

Why and How do I use a Necklace Extender. How do I make necklaces longer?

Why use a necklace extender:
Our 4 inch long necklace extender allows you to adjust each necklace up to 4 inches longer. Some of our customers use two at a time to make a necklace up to 8 inches longer. A Necklace Extender makes necklaces available for any size, any outfit and any season. With the use of a necklace extender any of our necklaces even look great on turtle neck sweaters as well as open neck dresses.

How to use a necklace extender:
Take the clasp of the necklace extender and attach it to the non-clasp end of the necklace. Then take the clasp of the necklace and hook it anywhere in the extender chain you want for the length you need.

If the necklace is too long how do I make it shorter?

Most of our longer necklaces are made to be adjustable shorter. There are two ways to do this. Welcome to shortening lesson 101:

1. If you want to shorten it a little bit, hook the clasp of the necklace down the chain on the other side.

2. If you want to shorten it a lot, put the necklace around your neck and pull it up to where you want to wear it. Then pinch both sides of the chain together at the back of your neck. Holding the chain where you've pinched it bring the chain at the back around front (the pendant will go to the back). Looking in the mirror take the clasp of the necklace and first hook it into the chain on its own side where you've pinched it, then in addition hook the clasp into the chain on the other side as well. Once the clasp is hooked into both sides swing the chain around back and the pendant to the front. This makes your necklace as short as you want it and keeps the front centered.

How do I add more elegance, romance and fun to my life with Victorian Elegance Jewelry?

Here's what several of our customers do:

  • One lady loves to take a bath with our jewelry on. She says she feels sooo good, incredibly gorgeous and extra sexy. Of course, she is trying not to get her jewelry wet.
  • Another customer works out of her home and loves to get up and go to work in her pajamas, but not before she adorns herself many times over with some Victorian Elegance Jewelry. She has fun starting her day out this way.
  • One of our newlywed customers bought a pair of our sterling silver fairy earrings that his new bride had oooed and ahed over at one of our shows. He presented them to her on his knees in the streets of Mexico on their honeymoon.
  • Can you think of ways Victorian Elegance Jewelry can add moments of romance to your life? To share your inspirations with us in words and photos go to the Contact Us page, email us with your stories of elegance, romance and fun and let us know if we can share it on the web. It's always exciting to hear from you.

What is the difference between French wires & Euro wires?

French wires are the standard wires that simply go through the ear and do not lock in the back. They come in many different metals and styles. See samples below:




   


Euro wires go through the ear and lock in the back. See instructions below:

INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1

Side view of unopened Euro wire.
STEP 2

Hold the front part of the Euro
wire then pull down on the lever in
the back to open.
STEP 3

Hold the hook end of the Euro
wire straight, then pull through
your ear as shown. DO NOT
angle it down until it is all the way
through your ear. See step 4.
STEP 4

Once the end of the hooked part
is through your ear, turn the wire
down getting ready to clasp it
shut.
STEP 5

Close the lever back over the
hooked part of the wire. The Euro
wire is now locked and you are
ready to go.
STEP 6

Euro wires gently secure your
earrings on your ears. They come
in many different metals and
styles.

We've created the ability for you to easily find the jewelry to match your outfit. Go into our Boutique and do a search by the color you want. We recommend you stay generic in your color choices: blue, green, black, clear, pink, red, etc. You'll get more results that way. Have fun!

What metals is your jewelry made from? What is Victorian Silver, Victorian Brass, & Victorian Black?

We use a variety of metals. Our blackened Austrian crystal necklaces are a mix of metals from the flowers to the chain, all are electroplated in an antique black.

Victorian Silver is solid brass that has been plated in sterling, then antiqued and lacquered to prevent tarnishing, combined with a rhodium plated silver chain.

Victorian Brass is solid brass that has been antiqued and then lacquered to prevent tarnishing.

Victorian Black is solid brass that has been plated in an antique blackened finish which is then lacquered to prevent tarnishing. If you are sensitive to nickle order our styles in a different metal finish. Please call for assistance for your special needs: 303-439-0261

Our Sterling Silver is 92.5 sterling.

Our Gold-Filled is 14k Gold-filled.

What kinds of stones do you use in making your jewelry?

We use a variety of stones including Swarovski Austrian Crystal which is the best lead crystal made in the world for jewelry. We also use many semi-precious stones and natural pearls. Sometimes we use antique pieces, vintage/handmade glass beads and other unique items. All of these things are illustrated in the description of each item.

I like the body necklace (pictured below) that's shown on the Home page. How do I order one or something like it?

This is a custom design made with antique crystal pieces, sterling silver and Austrian crystal beads. There was just as much draping in the back as in the front. It was redesigned for a woman who wore it in ballroom dance competition. Stunning jewelry like this can be designed for your special occasion. The cost is approximately $500 and up. This particular set was $800. It is also necessary for us to be able to see our customer in person for that custom fit. If this really excites you contact us to set up a phone consultation with Kim. Go to the Contact Us page.
