Dracakis Jewellers Judges Miss Universe Australia 2015

Miss Universe Australia 2015 NSW Finals

finalists

Miss Universe in probably one of the most prestigious beauty pageants in the industry and when Miss Universe Australia came around we just had to jump on board.
As one of two stockist of Hearts On Fire Jewellery in NSW, Miss Universe approached us to collaborate and boy did we…

PRE FINALS

In the lead up to the finals, MUA arranged for 4 NSW finalist to visit us at the store Mosman. This was a great opportunity to meet the girls, get a sense of their personality and have some fun.
All of the girls were very excited to see the Hearts On Fire range in person and try some pieces on. We saw this as a perfect opportunity to do a little impromptu photo shoot with the girls.

The girls were not shy to show off in front of the camera (we mean have you seen them) but for what they all have in beauty they have equally in personality and integrity. All the girls are passionate about their education and careers and see MUA as a professional platform. Of course, it’s a beauty pageant, but these girls prove that beauty is not just skin deep.

NSW FINALS SHOW

As if having all these beautiful girls in store wasn’t enough of a treat, our very own Theodore Dracakis was formally invited to be a judge for the Miss Universe NSW Finals in Sydney. Theo sat amongst a panel of esteemed judges including Company owner Deborah Miller & 2014  Miss Universe Australia Tegan Martin.

Theodore Dracakis & The NSW National Finalists

The event was a huge success and 3 of our girls made it through to national finals in Melbourne in June. Theodore has said “Judging the girls was a lot harder than I thought it would be, there is so much more to it than being beautiful. The girls have to present themselves before the panel and be personable. Some of the on the spot questions, even I would have had difficulty answering.”

We would like to wish all our girls the best in the finals! We’re behind you!

March Birthstone: Aquamarine

aquamarine

Aquamarine is the birthstone for March, and in a country where the majority of us live by the ocean, it couldn’t be a more fitting gemstone for those born in the third month of the year.

What is aquamarine?

Aquamarine is a precious gemstone found in the most stunning shades of blue, from an icy grey-blue to a vivid blue-green. It’s colour is often compared to that of a tranquil sea. The word “aquamarine” comes from the latin “aqua marina”, meaning “water of the sea”.

Properties of aquamarine.

For the march born, aquamarine is believed to offer a number of benefits as well as it’s stunning appearance. Throughout history is has been assosiated with a number of mythological properties.

It’s ties to the ocean don’t end with it’s name and colour; aquamarine was a popular stone amongst sailors. It was believed the stone would protect the sailors and offer protection on their voyages.

It’s benefits aren’t just ocean bound though. Dry land wearers are believed to benefit from feeling calmer and more serene due to its cool colour. Bad tempers be gone.

As we as being the symbol of hope, it also promotes youth and good health.

Aquamarine in fashion.

Aquamarine jewellery offers a great way to add colour to any outfit. With it’s cool blue colour it will work well with pastels and summer colours as well as plain monotone outfits.

With it’s versatility, the aquamarine gemstone is a must have for people born in march. At Dracakis Jewellers we have a stunning range of aquamarine earrings, pendants and rings which make perfect gifts.

So whether your treating yourself (which we should all do from time to time) or purchasing a gift for someone else. Come take a look at our aquamarine collection, and who knows maybe you could reap the benefits of youth, hope and good health.
