It's the time of the year when we're all starting to think about what to wear during that well deserved summer holiday. Packing is not our strongest side so reading this article by Josephine Aune, fashion editor of ELLE Sweden, made us super excited! She writes *Soft, shell colored white tones and classic blue stripes plus a dose of black are a good base in a timeless holiday wardrobe. Easy to combine with well-chosen silver jewelry and accessories. She teams our Tiles earrings (top layer) with a clean shirt and we love it! Photo by Nina Holma
We had an interesting talk with editor at STYLE BY; Jonna Bergh about career choices and a few other things like what we are like as a manager and what we got ourselves with our very first salary! The interview is in Swedish and can be read over at Styleby.se or just scroll down for a few translated snippets below. What did you buy with your first real salary? Sophie: Probably a party top in a strong color and synthetic material and maybe a cosmopolitan to go with it. Jos: When I moved to Australia after high school I worked as a model and when I received my first salary, I could buy a computer and a real camera so I...
Fashion writer Linnea Tjörnevik wrote an article about BOW LABEL in the Nordic Style Magazine the other day. Read a snippet below or read the article here. ¨Bow’s design is focused on reflecting it's owners and being an extension of them. Each collection has a unique story and purpose behind it and the pieces can be seen as your personal armor. I really like this mental image, jewellery can be so much more than just material belongings. It can be your lucky charm or your token, filled with personal meaning and value. The name Bow is inspired from a few different directions. Partly from the traditional bow weapon – spinning off from the previously mentioned mental image, but mostly from...
Bow Label offers a modern perspective on accessorizing, focused on personal style. Our pieces are minimalistic but eye-catching and range from earrings, bracelets, cuffs and necklaces. Most products are handcrafted from 925 silver plated with gold and rhodium. The name BOW has many meanings, but he biggest inspiration for our brand name was Clara Bow, a feminist it-girl of the twenties and a famous flapper. She's a perfect symbol for empowerment and many of or styles come with a story or affirmation to empower it's wearer. We love to create small conversation pieces that can be worn over and over again.
As the days get brighter, longer and warmer, people are baring more skin and we are happy to see that their jewelry choices are distinct and personal, with everything from anklets, earrings of all sizes and bracelets and rings that tell a story. Bling-wise, we are not sizing down either. We have some quite interesting newcomers arriving within the next month and we just had a welcome delivery of our best seller 90's chain in ruthenium and rhodium plating. We at BOW LABEL believe in investing in pieces that we can get a lot of mileage out of and wear every day and the 90's chin is that key piece that both of us wear every day in different day. We just love...
Don't you think our Tiles earrings look amazing in the latest issue of Damernas Värld? This is the perfect pair - just unhook on the back to create the look you are after!
Swedish glossy magazine Damernas värld's fashion editor talks about simple styling tricks by choosing light, monochrome colors and mixing textures and fabrics. She tops her outfit off with BOW LABEL's Épée pinky ring in rhodium plated silver!
We'd like to talk to you about pinky rings. Part of the pinky ring’s magic has to do with it's symbolic past. During most of the 19th century, the pinky ring was worn by single men and women on the left hand to signify that they were uninterested in marriage. In the older days of organized crime, the pinky ring was associated with mobsters and were often used to pay for the owners funeral. Throughout the 90s many rappers favored bling pinky rings to heavy gold chains. Today, their colorful history has made pinky rings something of a modern classic—and one we just love to wear! Our very own Épée Pinky ring is sculpted to resemble a swords blade and derives from the French´s small...

Tbt to this little article in Habit. Jos and I are excited to find out who will be the winner of the Swedish Fashion Talent 2017. It's been so much fun to be part of this group, and we still have another 6 months to go with the Swedish fashion council. In March it was two years with our baby BOW LABEL and it's the best feeling to see that something you've worked so hard on is growing in to it's own little world. When we first started dreaming of our own brand we named it after a 1920's book title. After some time we found it a little too romantic and Clara Bow came to mind. Now it feels like the...
It's the details that make all the difference. First spotted on some of the big boy brands around the european runways during fall; the cuff-worn-over sleeve gained ground and we love it. It's the perfect way of pulling up your sleeves but still look ever so stylish. And since there was a dash of snow in Stockholm (gahh..) today, why not also wear your cuff over your gloves.
Everything embarrassing becomes cool again (then embarrassing again), anyway - we've decided the anklet chain is here to stay. It catches the light and draws attention to you foot, which sounds kind of strange but it's great if you've got nice shoes on. But most importantly, it's another body part onto which you can attach something BOW LABEL! If you haven't tried wearing your 90's chain as an anklet, there is no time like the present.
Be straight earpin in solid white gold - 2100 SEK How would we describe our designs? It's harder than we thought to boil it down.. We work a lot with contrasts; for example we want our pieces to be minimalistic but eye-catching at the same time (Be straight earpin, Trishiula stud), or big but lightweight (Tiles earrings) or classic and avant garde at the same time (Snick earring, 90s chain). And most of our items can be worn in several different ways. We like to keep things functional as well and beautiful. We also always have a story or a purpose behind every piece.
Silver is BOW LABEL material of choice and we've been creating large, bold shapes from it for years. Silver hasn’t always been appreciated by the fine jewelry world, despite it being a precious metal, but we are happy to see the ever growing semi-fine segment taking a larger cut of the market. We love our light, slightly flexible silver that we coat with rhodium to give it that extra cold color which clash perfectly with the warm tones of yellow gold plating.
All our jewelry come with a purpose. Have you taken a closer look at what the story behind the pieces are? One of our favorites are the Trishula studs; The inspiration for this little power stud earring is the sacred weapon that Hindu God Shiva holds in his hand. The trident represents his three characteristics; creator, preserver and destroyer but can also represent the past, the present and future. The Trishula is also said to fight off negativity. Perhaps you or someone close to you need a small reminder of all things' time and that the future can be bright.
We were recently interviewed by an international magazine about our collection being unisex. What do you think? Are too few men wearing jewelry, and what is a good way to encourage them to start? M - Your latter look book features men wearing your designs, are you aspiring to target a larger male demographic? BL - Ever since we started we’ve just created jewelry for humans. It’s not particularly directed to a specific sex or age group. We have a wide spectrum of customers and we're very proud to cater to anyone that likes a good piece of jewelry. It seems however that its important to inspire men, more so than women, that jewelry is awesome.
Before we created BOW LABEL we found it hard to come by chic jewelry that felt right. The alternative was to either invest into the timeless, high-end designer stuff or you spend a couple of hundred on of-the-moment baubles at fast fashion retailers that barely last a season. Luckily, there is a happy medium and a new category: demi-fine jewelry. The demi-fine jewelry lines offer wear-every day solid gold and silver jewelry at accessible price points and BOW LABEL is proud to call ourselves a demi-fine jewelry brand. Take a closer look at our collection and go find your wear-every day piece!
Friday vibes and our Trishula stud is ON. THE INSPIRATION FOR THE TRISHULA STUD IS THE SACRED WEAPON THAT HINDU GOD SHIVA HOLDS IN HIS HAND AND USES TO FIGHT OFF NEGATIVITY. WEAR THIS 24-KARAT GOLD PLATED SILVER EARRING AS YOUR SIGNATURE PIECE AND LET THE POLISHED VENETIAN BOX CHAIN ADD A LITTLE SPARKLE.
Did you know that we took on a new market this fall and signed a deal with the British powerhouse Wolf & Badger. Wolf & Badger describe themselves as retailing the world’s best independent brands, so it’s a prominent crowd that we now can be part off.

We are excited to be stocking such a fantastic brand and they are sure to be a huge hit with our discerning customer base.” We're beyond excited about our spot in the Notting Hill branch at 46 Ledbury Rd.

After seasons of larger-than-life statement pieces, some are downsizing for summer with pretty gold things, layering smaller earrings and cuffs. Though tiny in size, these accessories make just as much of an impact. We love how the Vanquish hoop and the Apache star matches perfectly together. Mixed silver and gold gives us that perfect eclectic look that we pair up with our favorite tee. March is here and so is spring and warmer weather, well at least soon we hope. Love this IDEA t-shirt. Pair with the Apache stud and the Vanquish hoop earring.
French Vogue reported the statement earcuff as one of the hottest trends for Spring/Summer 2017. Ear cuffs blur the line between jewelry and accessories even further, with bold, graphic shapes. BOW LABEL'S ALMITRA EAR CUFF IS CRAFTED FROM 24-KARAT GOLD PLATED POLISHED SILVER. THIS STATEMENT PIECE LOOKS HEAVY BUT IS IN FACT LIGHT AND DESIGNED TO SIT COMFORTABLY ON THE MIDDLE PART OF YOUR EAR - THE SUPPORT OF THE SMALL BEAD MAKES IT FEEL ALMOST WEIGHTLESS. THE PIECE DERIVES IT'S NAME ALMITRA FROM THE NAME OF A SEERESS (FEMALE CLAIRVOYANT/PROPHET) IN THE 1930'S PERENNIAL BOOK THE PROPHET, WHICH HAS INSPIRED THE NAMES OF THE MANY PIECES IN THIS COLLECTION.
