PLAYAS-UNICAS-UNODE50

What are the most beautiful beaches in the world? These days at UNOde50, we have left everything behind and we have gone to enjoy our new pieces of jewelry on the seashore. With our latest campaign, Every Summer Has a Story, we bring our designs to the beach so you can find the perfect bracelets, rings and earrings for your next seaside vacations. Start getting your suitcase ready because your trip begins now.

Five unique beaches in the world

playa-cala-macarelleta-menorca

  • Cala Macarelleta. Menorca (Spain). As a handcrafted Made in Spain brand, we begin this route with one of the most irresistible beaches in our country. This small cove is located in a beautiful enclave of the island of Menorca. White sand, turquoise waters and magnificent rocks surrounded by a wild pine forest.

beach_la_digue_Seychelles

  • Anse Sur d’Argent, La Digue Island (Seychelles). A spectacular and incomparable destination within the paradisiacal archipelago of Seychelles. Guaranteed peace and quiet in an area that is hard to reach and where corals and tropical fish can be seen almost on the shore of the beach. The granite rocks contrast with the fine sand and crystal clear waters.

Oregon_coastline_near_Cannon_Beach

  • Cannon Beach, Oregon (United States). This area of the US coast retains its natural beauty thanks to the fact that it has become a protected area. Surrounded by mountains and stretching up to 10 miles long, it is perfect for long walks and enjoying the incredible image created by the rocks that emerge from the ocean.

playa-bonita-republica-dominicana

  • Playa Bonita, Samaná (The Dominican Republic). On the Dominican coast is this beach which stands out for its simplicity: sand, clear water and palm trees. An ideal destination and with few tourists, perfect for resting with lots of peace and quiet.

Sarakiniko_beach_Milos-greece

  • Sarakiniko, Milos Island (Greece). The Greek islands are full of stunning beaches, but Milos Island is in this wonder of white volcanic rock that is known locally as “moon beach.” The shapes of the rocks that have been created for centuries by the effect of the water and wind make it an unforgettable coast.

This is our selection of unique beaches. Which beach will be the setting of your summer story? Whichever one it is, don’t miss out on our selection of pieces of summer jewelry that are featured in Every Summer Has a Story by UNOde50.

International music festivals: 8 unique festivals that are not to be missed


people-festival-party-dancing

Secret Solstice, Reykjavik, Iceland: This festival is another reason to visit one of the hottest tourist destinations at the moment. It’s held in June, during the longest days of the year, when the sun barely sets in Iceland, a unique feature that makes it unforgettable.

Boom Festival, Portugal: This event for free spirits features not only music, but an array of activities, performances, and workshops designed to connect with people and the environment and to let go under the full moon. A psychedelic adventure near Idanha-a-Nova Lake in Portugal.

Colours of Ostrava, Czech Republic: Curiously, this event is celebrated near the country’s old steel plants, a unique location in which to enjoy international groups of all musical styles.

Dr_Dog_Treasure_Island_Music_Festival

Fuji Rock, Japan: This well-organized, 3-day festival where the Japanese let loose has been held since 1997. It is the perfect venue to enjoy live music from international and Japanese bands.

Tomorrowland, Boom, Belgium: An essential for lovers of electronica, this event—held since 2005 in a small town between Antwerp and Brussels—is where the world’s most famous DJs converge every summer.

Exit Festival, Novi Sad, Serbia: The Balkans’ most popular electronic music festival attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over the globe. It was created with social responsibility in mind and a portion of the proceeds help support the area’s youth. A fun fact? It’s held at the Petrovaradin Fortress, Europe’s largest 17th century fortification.

Burning_Man_2011_Victor_Grigas_temple_IMG_4651

Burning Man, Nevada, United States: Though not focused on music, this festival had to make the list because it’s one of the world’s most original events. Amazing and memorable experiences are in store in the middle of Nevada’s incredible Black Rock Desert.

Kazantip, Crimea, Ukraine: A true celebration of music that has become the world’s longest festival, Kazantip has its own philosophy: it is described as an independent (fictitious) republic on the Mediterranean with its own government led by a queen. Unique experiences are guaranteed!

 

All about pearls: a classic that keeps reinventing itself

84134RGB

Classic? Traditional? None of it! Pearls can be bespoke, different, and current. That’s why the pearl has become one of our favorite elements when designing our unique jewelry. Although UNOde50’s most iconic materials are silver and leather, we’ve incorporated crystal, gold, and pearl details in our creations for some time now.

They’ve become the focal point of some of our icons, like the “A Pearl of Wisdom” bracelet or the “Orión” cuff. Creations featuring pearls are some of our most sought-after pieces and we can no longer imagine our collections without them.

Yes, pearls also have a past

Although these days most pearls are man-made, their use in jewelry dates back thousands of years to the discovery of natural pearls created by oysters. Unlike crystals and stones, pearls do not need to be carved to show their splendor.

It may seem incredible but they have been used to adorn accessories since ancient times. Though it is thought that this method of use began in India, pearl remains have been found among the remnants of ancient civilizations, like the Phoenicians, Greeks, Hebrews, and Egyptians. In fact, it is believed that during her reign, Cleopatra possessed the two most valuable pearls in the world.

They have also been used for centuries in Europe, not only in the design of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, but also in embroidery, embellished fabrics, handbags, and hats.

But let’s put the ancient past aside and move on to the 20th century, when the pearl became an iconic element of fashion and accessories. Designers like Coco Chanel made pearls a must-have and movie stars like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Audrey Hepburn were steadfast devotees of the beads, both on and off screen.

Pearls today: IN or OUT?

84174RGB

Totally IN. These days pearls are still a trend that can be found in thousands of shapes and colors, in all kinds of jewelry and accessories, not to mention clothing and decor. Every year they reinvent themselves and adapt to the styles of the moment.

At UNOde50, we like to take risks by tweaking the traditional vibe of these gems and turning them into bold and daring designer pieces, with silver and leather details. Want to give them a try? Check out our selection of unique pearls!

76243RGB2

The first rays of springtime sun, spring break, longer days… Summer is right around the corner and we’re eager to hit the beach. Ocean, our new collection, arrives just in time to bring us the warmth and color of the summer season.

Ocean Collection: positive energy in full color

OCEANO 1

Our latest pieces are inspired by waves, coral, and colorful shells. Long beaded necklaces, anklets, maxi rings, cuffs… the new collection features a variety of designer pieces that will transport you to the seashore.

Turquoise, coral, aquamarine, and pearl tones will envelop you in a cool and relaxing atmosphere. The leather and silver details, characteristic of UNOde50, add a bohemian touch to a casual and fun jewelry line.

Original charms are the key to this line, appearing on bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Surfboards, starfish, shells, positive messages… the energy of the sea and vacations have inspired our creative team, led by José Azulay, to design these pieces with unique details.

A sea of combinations

OCEANO 2

Ocean is a collection to wear the way you want. Combine it with a colorful frock or a white Ibizan sundress. It also works as a casual accessory with a dress shirt or office attire. It’s perfect to pair with a denim look or a bikini at the beach bar on your favorite beach. And all of the pieces work together to create unique jewelry sets.

This spring, discover Ocean: irresistible designs inspired by the seabed, as always, handcrafted in Spain.
