We present “Simply Rett,” UNOde50’s new charity bracelet

72052RGB

This month at UNOde50, we are launching a new charity bracelet, keeping our commitment to Rett Syndrome. For years we have collaborated with the research into this neurological disorder that mainly affects girls and causes a severe motor and intellectual disability from the first months of life.

RETT_BLOG_1200x700_EN

The funds raised from the sale of this charity bracelet will be donated to the National Association My Princess Rett and will go towards researching Rett Syndrome. Currently, there are more than 300,000 cases worldwide affecting boys and girls, with a much higher percentage of girls. The disorder usually manifests during the second year of life, and in all cases before the age of four.

The motto “Silent Angels” has been popularized by the actress Julia Roberts, an ambassador for the cause, in reference to the children affected. Like the previous ones, this motto is expressed in child’s handwriting on this new charity bracelet together with angel hands that are open, as a symbol of hope.

There are already many familiar faces from our country who actively collaborate with this cause: Sara Baras, Dani Rovira, Eva González, Toni Acosta, Paco León, Cayetano Rivera, etc.

Our new “Simply Rett” charity bracelet is unisex in design and has two new red and black leather straps. You can get it now at all of our stores around the world and in our online store.

74830RGB

“I knew that I wanted to create my own designs to convey my passions, my fears, my anxieties, my inner world. To express myself and create art.”

 In recent years, UNOde50 has become the most prevalent Spanish jewelry brand around the world. It has proprietary stores on the most exclusive streets of New York, Paris, Milan, London, Barcelona, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Rome, Madrid, and many others, where it shares the spotlight with the most prestigious international brands.

With their power and easily identifiable character, UNOde50 designs attract women and men of all ages and from all cultures. More than consumers, they are loyal fans of the firm. Underlying this “Made in Spain” success, there is a creative universe and a passionate heart: that of its creator, José Azulay.

This book opens the door to know further about the universe of UNOde50’s President and Creative Director, as well as the universe of the jewelry brand.

UNO-DE-5010012

In this book, José Azulay explains for the first time his creative process, his desires, his concerns, and his passions. In other words, everything that nourishes and gives life to the inimitable jewelry of UNOde50.

“We are all different. Even different depending on the day. Or on the time of day. That is why each UNOde50 piece is different. I want to express moods in my designs.

With the metals whose curves reflect a countless number of emotions, their magnificence, their strengths. With the leather that represents the beginning of time and life, nature in the primitive state. The crystals symbolize the joy of living, positivity, fantasy and glamour.

And the finished design comes from that mix. The triumph of free spirit, harmony, and, above all, the joy of knowing that what I have done with all my soul is going to make many people happy.”

10 UNIQUE IDEAS REVOLVING AROUND WATER

PORTADA

Next 22nd of March is World Water Day. Essential and mysterious, water has provided inspiration for the worlds of arts, fashion architecture… And even jewellery. Here are ten original examples in which H20 is the protagonist.

The Green Lake phenomenon, a nature reserve that is submerged by the thaw from nearby mountains at each change of season, creating a lake perfect for diving. You can submerge yourself among its trees and benches, enjoying nature in a different way.

1

The bikini that cleans water pollution, a sustainable fashion design. Created in California, it’s made of a spongy and hydrophobic material capable of absorbing up to 25 times its own weight in contaminants. Recyclable and with a low-cost production, it is pure fashion at the service of the environment.

2

The Subsix Restaurant, both inspired by the ocean and literally submerged in it. It is located in the Maldives, a forty-minute seaplane journey away from the international airport of Malé and six metres beneath the surface of the sea. The complex also has the first submarine disco in the world.

3

The infinite pool of Singapore’s Hotel Marina Bay Sands, one of the most expensive hotels in the world, offers a view of the entire city. Located on the fifty-seventh floor of this skyscraper, those who have swum in it claim that you can swim to the edge to experience how it would feel to fall off the top of the world.

4

The ‘Anemone’ bracelet from the ‘Unexplored Worlds’ collection by UNOde50. Daring and unique, its leather cord is complemented with the colour of the beads and crystals in coral, lime, green and blue tones. A mould-breaking design to pay tribute to the oceans that are a source of life.

5

Aurum 79, the most expensive water in the world and, by all accounts, the best too. It comes from the Fiji Islands, is packaged in a solid, 24-karat gold bottle and stored in a leather case. But it is not water alone, it also contains 5 milligrams of dissolved gold dust.

6

The Great Blue Hole in Belize which, according to researchers is the biggest blue hole in the world. A submarine cave that is over 300 metres long and 125 metres deep that has become the most popular divers’ hotspot.

7

The Japonese dessert mizu shingen mochi. A drop of water that, in reality, is a pastry. This is a variation of the traditional rice cake, known in Japan as shingen mochi. With its transparent and crystalline appearance, it is made of the water from the springs of the South Japanese Alps. It is sweetened and solidified to give it shape.

8

The ‘Ego’ earrings from the ‘Wild Life’ collection by UNOde50. They are silver-plated and have blue Murano crystals. An elegant, rounded piece that has been handcrafted and is 100% Made in Spain.

9

The Hotel Hydropolis Underwater in the Persian Gulf, designed as the first luxury underwater hotel in the world. A project that placed it 20 metres below the surface of the sea, just in front of the Jumeirah beach in Dubai.

The big date on the cinema calendar took place with the most anxiously awaited red carpet of the year. A parade of impeccable looks, carefully chosen to set trends. But this red carpet does not live off shoes and dresses alone. Obviously, jewels are also exhibited on it. On this last edition, the choices were so versatile that they could even accompany you in your everyday life. Don’t miss out on the jewel trends of the 2016 edition of the Oscars!

Naomi Watts’ unique style completed with a short necklace drew all eyes. An exclusive jewel in which the small, leaf-shaped pieces were gradually assembled to crown one of the most brilliant choices of the night. Like our ‘Studio 54’ necklace, in which the pieces are interspersed with Swarovski crystals.

1-OSCAR

The ever-daring décolletage of Charlize Theron was adorned with an extra-long necklace in the style of our Miedusa’, with its round beads, was one of the most applauded options. The best way to wear a jewel and not go unnoticed.

2-OSCAR

The original rigid bracelet embracing Olivia Munn’s wrist was very much in the style of our iconic ‘B12’. Because sometimes, all you need is a creative jewel that enhances the simplicity of your dress.

3-OSCAR

The most mini and timeless size for Jennifer Lawrence’s short necklace. Very similar to our elegant and rebellious ‘Alterego’. A perfect choice for your everyday wear, whatever plan you have in mind.

4-OSCAR

The 90’s are back on the street and the red carpet courtesy of Olivia Wilde and her choker necklace. Like our Lizza’ necklace, that combines symmetrical plates linked by small, silver-plated balls. The most mould-breaking way to complete your look.

5-OSCAR

The ever-provocative Tom Hardy represented the male presence with his impeccable sporty watch. Like our ‘Un Momentito’ with its round, silver-plated case and quartz crystal dial. A man who knows that a good watch is always worthy of mention. On the red carpet or anywhere else.
