The first non-gender zodiac jewellery
"It makes no sense that zodiac signs have a gender and the same goes for jewellery," says Olga Kassian, at the launch of her new Wonther jewellery line Zodiac, which represents the 12 signs of the zodiac.
Traditional concepts of "masculine" and "feminine" can be alienating and discussing the stars with more inclusivity is what the jewellery brand Wonther aims to do. Under this light, the ethical brand designed a zodiac collection keeping in mind the respect for each person's gender identity, identifying the fluidity that exists in each person.
These 12 pieces of jewellery are meant to show that each zodiac sign traces a personality and that this personality, regardless of gender, always creates a personal brand that breaks and marks the imperfect circle of life.

Expert advice on buying and investing in a time piece for your wedding
Expert advice on buying and investing in a time piece for your wedding from Tim Harrison, the co-founder of WatchPilot.com.
When the big wedding day finally arrives, it should be as memorable as possible. Choosing a watch for the groom should complement their wedding suit, however it should also be a timepiece that they will want to wear for years to come.
When purchasing a timepiece for the groom-to-be, consider factors such as their personality. The chosen watch should be an accurate reflection of who he is and speak for his personal style. Also consider his interests, everyone has varied interests and hobbies, and when considering a watch purchase, this should be taken into account. If he's a sporty type or potentially a lover of motorsport, this should be considered when deciding which watch will work best for his lifestyle. Lastly, consider his budget by asking yourself how much he would likely spend if he was purchasing the watch himself. This is important as you do not want your choice to be out of character.
