Diamond Braille Dotted Ring

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Braille RingI saw this ‘Touch Ring’ earlier today and thought what a lovely gift for a blind friend or family member. Each ring is specially designed so that the recipient can read the message easily by touching the lettering.

You can customise the gift with your own personal message spelt out in Diamond Braille dots. Your message could read I Love You or I Miss You or you could keep it simple by just writing their name or Mum/Dad. The only people that would know what it said would be those who can read Braille.

The ring can be made from sterling silver, gold, white gold or platinum. You can also choose the material of the lettering so it is completely original. Prices are not available on the website because every ring made is likely to be a one off but you can get a quote via email.

Visit the Stephen Einhorn website for further details about this truly unique product.

Accessorize Key To My Heart Bracelet

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Accessorize Charm BraceletAccessorize is one of my favourite places to shop for jewellery, hair accessories and bags, they have such classy products and such variety. I visited the Royal Ascot races last week and spent hours in there the day before trying to find something to go with my outfit. Luckily I found loads and was spoiled for choice!

This is one of the pieces I picked up – a black, silver and pink charm bracelet. In the photograph it looks quite chunky but it’s actually really dainty when on your wrist. Attached to the bracelet are heart, bird and key charms and pearly beads. It is known as the Key To My Heart Bracelet and costs £10 on the Monsoon Accessorize website.

Elizabeth Swann Necklace

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Elizabeth Swann NecklaceI’ve been inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean recently – although I haven’t actually seen the film, well I saw the first but not the latest one – But I’ve seen the trailers and the posters and they’ve reminded me how much I like the pirate look. The best way to do this look tastefully is not go to your local fancy dress shop and hire out the full maiden in distress outfit but to select a few pieces of good quality pirate inspired jewellery and accessories.

If you happen to be crazy about the Pirates of the Caribbean films you might like this exact replica of Elizabeth Swann’s necklace in Dead Man’s Chest. It’s 24 carat plated so it doesn’t look like a cheap children’s toy – always good – and polished with and antique finish to get that authentic treasure trove look. It comes in official Disney packaging and the best thing is it only costs £14.99. You’ll be the envy of all the 14 year old girls in your neighbourhood! Get it from Legend’s Online.

Juicy Couture Bowler Charm

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Juicy Couture Bowler CharmCharms are so versatile; you can attach them to pretty much anything whether it’s a necklace, bracelet, handbag, set of keys or even a button hole. Purchasing a good selection of charms can be quite a hobby for some people, I haven’t got that many myself but I’m hoping to increase my collection as the years go by.

I saw this beautiful 14ct gold bowler charm with green locket bag on the Treasure Box website and thought it was definitely one for the collection. It costs £38 and is designed by Juicy Couture.

Jolie Bijoux Turtle Pendant

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Turtle PendantI am a big fan of pendant necklaces especially unique designs like this turtle shape. It is made from a brown wooden looking material with bronze diamantes and a long gold chain. I love the detail on the turtle; it really is stunning, dainty and elegant.

I can imagine wearing this with a boob tube top to really show off the pendant. The necklace, designed by Jolie Bijoux costs just £12 reduced from £15 and is available on the Treasure Box website.

The item can be delivered in 2 working days and comes beautifully wrapped in a little gift box, it is therefore ideal if you want to buy it for somebody as a birthday gift.

Frost Fire Style Rings

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Frost Fire Style RingsAfter finding the necklaces below, I also discovered some rings on which are again great value. These are my four favourites, the first style on the left is called the Peacock and costs £5, the second is called the Olivia and costs £5.50, the third is called the Star Kiss (my personal favourite) and costs £6 and the last ring is called the Jet Curl and costs £9.

It has just been proven that you don’t need to spend a fortune to sparkle up you fingers! The rings would make a nice present for someone because each one comes nicely gift wrapped.

Heart Shaped Necklaces

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

Heart NecklacesI have just been over to and seen these gorgeous heart shaped necklaces at such reasonable prices. The first necklace on the left is £13, the middle £14 and the last just £12. They are all such beautiful designs I cannot believe how cheap they are.

My favourite is the middle design because it is unique and has lots of intertwining occurring; this double open heart pendant necklace is made from sterling silver with clear Swarovski crystals, a perfect gift for that someone special or for yourself!

Men's Stainless Steel Greek Bracelet

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

mensbracelet.jpgI’ve just come across a new range of men’s stainless steel bracelets over on the JaneOJewels website that would make an ideal gift for an anniversary, birthday, or other occasion that requires you to buy your other half a special gift.

Men are extremely hard to buy for, but if your man’s into jewellery then he’s bound to love these bracelets, especially this Greek styled bracelet.

The design has an elegantly brushed finish and looks heavy and masculine, although it actually feels light to wear. The links can be removed to adjust the size and at £19.99 it’s very reasonably priced. The alternating links of Greek key and plain solid steel blocks work extremely well.

Lola Rose Open Heart Pendant

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

Lola Rose Open Heart PendantI am quite a fan of Lola Rose Jewellery, especially the pink breast cancer campaign pieces where 20% of the sale price goes towards the charity. This rose coloured open heart pendant on suede cord is a lovely addition to the collection and would look really nice with a cream outfit. The pendant isn’t too overpowering so you would be able to wear it with most things.

The heart pendant costs £50 – not the cheapest of pendant necklaces but remember £10 will go towards the breast cancer campaign. The necklace is available at Treasure Box and comes beautifully wrapped in a gift box.
