The Geo Necklace

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Geo NecklaceWith Geometric print being a huge trend this winter I thought I’d show you this great necklace that really reflects this hot new look! Personally I don’t think I can carry off those bold geometric prints and I also think its going to be one of those trends that won’t last particularly long so instead of splashing out on an expensive geo garment why not purchase this great necklace for just £9.99 from River Island, that way you can still look trendy without spending a fortune on a garment you will only wear once or twice!

I think this necklace would look great with black; the gorgeous orange gems will be perfect for spicing up that ‘LBD’ and will definitely make you stand out from the crowd!

The use of dramatic pendants and chokers along with vintage necklaces and chandelier earrings have been used to replicate the love of the big silver screen and to add style that shines with glitzy sophistication. Bold colours are also dominant in the collection to ensure one of the brightest winter seasons in fashion.

To create the perfect Hollywood style these High Society earrings £19.99, Glamour Rocks Cocktail Ring £18.99 and Film Star Bracelet £29.99 are a must. All these items are totally reminiscent of the jewellery worn by the Starlets and are sure to add chic sparkle to any outfit.

Thomas Sabo Silver Love Rings

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Thomas Sabo Love RingsThis selection of contemporary sterling silver rings, created by jewellery designer Thomas Sabo is gorgeous. Choose from a range of rings that can either be as subtle as you like or as bling as you like – I’d personally choose the bling every time, the more diamonds the better as far as I’m concerned!

You could wear these little beauties for all various occasions; at work, casual or for festive fun. Thomas Sabo has definitely fulfilled their company slogan of “Let us surprise you. Let us inspire you. And let us thrill you” by creating these stunners.

It appears you can’t buy or see any prices (worrying) on line at www.thomassabo.com, but you can view the whole collection and they list all stockists which include Harrods, Selfridges and House of Fraser so you can guess what time of price tags you will find attached.

Wishbone Necklaces

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Mischa’a Wishbone NecklaceIn every picture I’ve recently seen of Mischa Barton, I’ve fallen head over heels for her unique and classy necklaces.

Her latest find is this delicate wishbone necklace that has been designed and created by Jennifer Meyer and it seems to be a popular choice among all these lovelorn celebs. In reality though girls, if you want to be seen with one of these charms round your neck, you better start wishing hard as they cost a hefty $700 (approx. £350).

Wishbone NecklaceAll is not lost though as I’ve found the perfect substitute at www.accessoriesonline.co.uk. It looks exactly the same on a 20″ gold chain but will cost you just £86.95. Its still quite pricey, but in comparison to the real thing you can’t really grumble.

So how lucky will you be this Christmas? will you get the real thing? – to be honest no one would ever know the difference!!

Oishii Jewellery is not a very well known jewellery brand but never the less very affordable and boasts some of the best contemporary designs I have seen in a while.

molton silver earringsThey have focused on producing all their jewellery from a combination of sterling silver and more natural products such as wood, crystal and semi precious stones to create high quality items.

The whole Oishii Jewellery collection can be found on their website and is well worth a browse.

Diva Ring – Miss Selfridge

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

Diva Ring - Miss SelfridgeWell the party season is fast approaching us girls so we must prepare and get ready to find those frocks. However, it’s all very well having a dress but what about the jewellery?

You may have the most stunning dress but if the jewellery is not right then you could find yourself blending in to the background – and lets face it we all want to be able to stand out in a crowded room!!! Dresses can be expensive so finding bargain jewllery to match is always a plus.

For me this cocktail ring by Diva at Miss Selfridge was the perfect buy at just £8 and it certainly knows how to set off a glizty frock. Whether a pop princess or a rock chick, I think every girl needs a ring that can make a statement as much as this can!!

The Hummingbird Has Landed

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Alex Monroe’s Hummingbird NecklaceI’ve always been more of a fan of silver than gold – in fact my whole jewellery collection consists of silver, so I wanted to try and find a piece of gold jewellery that would add the wow factor to any outfit.

When I saw a picture of Mischa Barton modelling this elegant gold hummingbird necklace, I knew this would make a great start to my much needed gold collection. It s 22 carat gold plated and features in Alex Monroe’s Sunblossom collection that can be seen at Accessories Online.

The hummingbird is in fact handcrafted, measures 1.5 cm long and comes on a fine gold chain with a lobster clasp. It’s a bit pricey at £81.95 so might be worth waiting and adding to the Christmas list – it will definitely be featuring at the top of mine!!!
