Rule The Holidays

Royally inspired, our new collection reigns supreme

When it came to finding inspiration for our new holiday collection, we didn’t have to look far. Just across the street, actually. 

Of the many astounding beauties Arcata, California, is known for, our beloved Victorian homes and buildings are majestic wonders. (Fun fact: our Carson Mansion is considered the grandest Victorian home in America and is rumored to be the model Walt Disney used for Disneyland’s iconic clock tower.) 

Having all those elaborate and gothic turrets, gables, spandrils, wraparound porches, and sweeping staircases in ready view leaves a lasting impression. And they’re a never-ending source of artistic innovation for our designers to draw from. 

You’ll see this vintage grandeur in the collection’s elaborate filigree, the precisely lasered points, and in the deep, dark, moody hues of the crystals and gemstones. No doubt, Queen Victoria would have coveted these exquisitely handcrafted pieces—as would any of the royal style icons of the age. Oh yes, while QV might have been the most posh and powerful, there were a handful of other regal fashionistas whose sartorial statements were legendary. Perhaps being the ones who inspired the phrase “dripping in gemstones,” these fabulous and f-a-n-c-y ladies made fashion-forward attitudes part of their royal decree.  

Can you imagine being one of these glam gal’s stylists? Not to mention, getting a peek inside their jewelry chests? (Hopefully, smelling salts would have been on the ready because we’d be on the floor!) But when it comes to the vintage royals we’d most want to style, there are five who stand crown and shoulders above the rest. And while technically they don’t all hail from the Victorian age, their love of glamour and opulence makes them the queens of our hearts.

Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom: The Regal Romancer

Queen V rocked the Romantic and Victorian eras with her modest yet captivating fashion. High-necked gowns and voluminous skirts were her signature look, setting the trend for Victorian elegance. Pearls and diamonds were her go-to’s for glamour, and she flaunted her sentimental jewelry choices like a pro. Fun Fact: Queen Vicky married her cousin, Prince Albert, in 1840, and her wedding gown set a trend for the white lace wedding dresses that are ever popular today.

Marie Antoinette, Queen of France: Let Them Wear Bling!

Marie Antoinette defined extravagance in 18th-century France with over-the-top gowns, embroidery that was off the charts, pastel everything, and wigs tall enough to have their own zip code. So no, subtlety was not her thing. Often decked out in diamond-encrusted tiaras, lavishly layered necklaces, and shoulder-dusting earrings, Mrs. Thing knew how to make a jaw-dropping entrance. Fun Fact: Her opulence contributed to the French Revolution. Oops!

Empress Elisabeth (Sisi) of Austria: Effortless Elegance, Darling!

Sisi was the OG of minimalist chic. Think form-fitting dresses, sleek lines, and wide-brimmed hats that said, "I woke up like this." Shimmer and sparkle were her secret weapons, as she opted for look-at-me statement pieces rather than the over-the-top layers her peers were fond of wearing. Fun Fact: Sisi was a free spirit who loved horses—but that didn’t mean she pulled in the reigns on opulence. Her riding outfits and accessories were highly admired and are still coveted and copied to this day.
