As our “Best of CES” pick of 2013 – the Case-Mate Crafted Collection offers a luxurious alternative to everyday iPhone adornment. If you’ve ever desired an elegant accessory to accompany your ever evolving style – the Case-Mate Crafted Collection, just may be the be thing created for your smartphone. Recently, I got the chance to check out the Pearls Collection in Black, Silver and Gold as well as the chic Madison Collection case in black.
The Pearls Collection is crafted from genuine mother of pearl. Individual pieces of this exotic pearl are thoughtfully selected and carefully laid into an artistic design pattern that enhances its pigmentation and luster. The additional finishing touch of slowly polished and brushed aluminum creates a stunning contrast and gives the Pearls Collection its chic, refined beauty.
The classic beauty of the Madison Collection embodies the iconic trend of quilted fashion accessories (an absolute must-have for any Chanel bag owner.) Adding a touch of bling with Swarovski Crystals to compliment the quilted genuine leather makes the Madison case perfect for the fashionable, modern woman of any age.
Luxury is never cheap, and neither are these Crafted Collection accessories. Case-Mate is moving into a more luxe market of accessories with the Pearls and Madison Collection, starting at $100 these smartphone cases may be a little bit more than what you’re used to spending on accessories. But if you think about it, isn’t your smartphone one of the most expensive accessories you own anyway? Why not invest in an accessory that not only protects your valuable smartphone, but also compliments your personal style?

Inspired by vintage automotive interiors, the Crafted Woods Collection is a marriage of sophisticated authentic natural materials and thoughtful attention to detail.
Crafted Zebrawood, $80: Sustainably-harvested in Central Africa, the light-colored Zebrawood is patterned with a chaotic and wavy stripping that resembles a zebra’s distinctive stripes. The richly-veined coarse texture of the Zebrawood wood adds a natural feel to the case and highlights the beauty and strength of the wood’s interlocking grain.
Refined Brushed Aluminum, $50: Sophistication is in the details. The Brushed Aluminum case excites with a blend of sleek, sporty look and top-notch protection. Available in Brushed Gunmetal with Black.
Signature Flip, $50: Uncover style with the Signature Flip. Fashioned from genuine leather, the tailored design has 360-degree front and back protection. An ultra-soft microfiber lines the inside for extra protection and polish. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the boardroom and beyond.

If there’s one thing I’m a fanatic of it’s accessories! Rings, bracelets, bags….and phone cases (yes, phone cases.) Have you realized that your mobile device is one of those accessories that you have on 24/7? With the variety of phone cases, pouches, housings etc available everywhere, there’s absolutely no reason why your phone shouldn’t be an accessorized reflection of you.
Case in point, the newest addition to the Case-Mate family, The Glam Case. Upon the arrival of my glam case (I recieved several packages on that day, but this was the package I looked forward to most!) I immediately tweeted a picture of the beautiful case and my Twitter family went crazy over the glamourous shine & sleek design and the case.
Glitter does more than dazzle in the Glam iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S case. The high shine style combines an on-trend look for an attention grabbing iPhone 4 / 4S case that’s ready for a night out.
With its slim silhouette, the iPhone 4 / 4S case sparkles with a glitter coated inlay. A smooth and clear finish coats the shine, creating a polished case that shimmers from day to night. The lacquer coating keeps the layers of sparkles in place, while creating an iPhone 4 / 4S case that is easy to slide in and out of your purse or pockets. Available in Gold, Silver and Hot Pink.
