Fab Feathers

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

featherearrings.jpgThe feather is this seasons must have accessory, whether it’s a bag, an item of clothing or a hair piece, we all must own some form of feathery friend.

The simple and subtle feathered look is more my style which is why I couldn’t resist these classy and elegant Big Feather hook earrings by Alex Monroe. They are made from sterling silver and are brushed with a silver shine. This pair would really set off a stunning evening dress and would guarantee you shined all night long.

They’re not cheap at £140.00 but at least with a silver feather you know it’s going to last a life time unlike a material one. Get your big feather earrings at www.asos.com.

Kit Heath Jewellery

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

kitheath1.JPGKit Heath jewellery is a fab family run business based in Devon that has spent the last 20 years creating and designing beautiful jewellery. Their collection consists of both men and women’s pieces as well as having a kids collection so it’s definitely worth a look if you have young to buy for this xmas.

Each item falls in to one of six categories: Ethnic, Organic, Vintage, Dark chic, Romantic and iced gems. Each piece in each category is designed around the same theme.

I have to say that I love the Vintage collection where textured silver and faceted stones are used to give that extra decorative touch like with this large oval textured necklace for £70.50. You can view all of Kit Heath creations on line, however you will have to check out the nearest stockist before making a purchase.

Kiss Bangle

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

kissmebangle.jpgWho needs mistletoe this year when you could just wear a bangle saying kiss all over it!! Saves spending hours hanging around a plant on the ceiling trying to catch the eye of the guy you’ve been checking out all night.

If you ask me this much more direct approach is the way forward and will save you so much time and could help catch the man of your dreams a hell of a lot quicker.

So if this new approach sounds like your kind of thing all you need to do is sit back and click on to www.lily-shop.co.uk. It’s a really cute bangle that’s sure to accessorise well with most festive outfits and the best bit – its just £5.00. It could be the best fiver you’ve ever spent if it means bagging your man.

Argent of London

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

twistedheartpendant.jpgArgent of London is a great jewellery stockist that I have recently been introduced to. They began in 1996 and aim to provide jewellery that people can buy for themselves instead of having to wait for that special someone to get the hint.

The designs create a statement and can be worn for today instead of having to keep pieces stuck in your jewellery box getting dusty while you wait for that special occasion to arrive. You can find it all at Argent of London, from sterling silver and 18ct gold to diamonds and precious stones so they really do cater for everyone’s budget.

After browsing through their vast collection on line at www.argentlondon.com, I was instantly drawn to this silver twisted heart pendant and chain. I expect it was because it has a certain Tiffany & Co feel to the design with the use of the heart but with a much more attractive price tag at just £38.

B'Jewelled Crystal Drop Earrings

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

dropearrings.jpgI adore drop earrings and recently found these elegant three tone pair created from silver sterling and amethyst swarovski crystal.

These little beauties create enough sparkle to turn any day outfit into a glam evening ensemble. They catch the light in all the right places leaving a radiant glow on your face. This effect is sure to attract all the right attention – wink wink!!

These delights have been designed as part of a set with matching necklace, bracelet and ring – imagine all that sparkle. All pieces can be bought separately so you can add to the collection at any time. All you are required to do is click on to www.expensivetaste.co.uk and order away.

Try not to let the name of the website put you off as this website is stocked with reasonably priced goodies. You will find these earrings for just £40.00 which I don’t consider to be too bad for sterling silver and crystal.

Purple Frenzy

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

purplebracelet.jpgWith purple being the new black this season, we can’t ignore the fact that purple jewellery is a must. Make sure though that if you take the purple jewellery option that you don’t end up wearing all different shades as you may end up looking a bit on the hippy side.

I would suggest that if you were to choose a piece such as this purple early bracelet by French Connection, that you team with maybe a black outfit and fellow purple accessories such as a nice clutch. This glamorous bracelet is elasticated so suitable for shapes and sizes and is just £15.00 and can be bought in store or on-line at www.fcukbuymail.com.

Beaten silver discs necklace and earrings set

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

beatensilverset.JPGIn my opinion you can’t go wrong this Christmas if you check out jewellery sets for all your female family members and friends! A great set will be a hit with any jewellery loving lady.

You do have to be careful with some sets though. Sometimes, especially if a bold design is used it may be a bit over powering to wear all items at once. The trick is too find a nice subtle set that can be worn come day or night and to any occasion.

This silver necklace and earrings set is perfect. For starters you can’t go wrong with just plain silver, once you start introducing colours and gemstones you might slip up. This design is also trendy and unique so is bound to go down well. Is a solid sterling silver set so you can guarantee excellent quality for your money.

Taking all this in to consideration you have to expect the price tag that comes attached – £133 from www.pistachio-jewellery.co.uk. I think you would agree its worth it though for that extra special person.

Nina and Lola

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

red moonstone necklaceIf individual style is your thing, then look no further than Nina & Lola. They only began in April 2007, however already have many designers and some fab vintage sources. Their aim is to reduce the fashion clone count by promoting individuality in people who follow their own instinct when it comes to fashion.

This website has it all, a wide range of vintage and designer clothing that leaves you wanting a complete wardrobe overhaul, and most importantly it stocks gorgeous need-it-now jewellery that justifies an accessory splurge.

orange,white&gold necklaceTheir jewellery can be quite pricey with price tags up to £2320, but I think I have found some very reasonable examples that still represent the culture that Nina & Lola are trying to create. For starters this extra fun 60’s vintage red moonstone necklace is just £20. The reds are vibrant and the beads are light catching so you will glow at all times!

In keeping with 60’s theme, you will also find this white, orange and gold long necklace for £45. So for a season that is loving big statement necklaces and where colour is everything, this necklace would fit right in. To see what other delights they have to offer, just visit www.ninaandlola.com.

Disney Couture

Friday, November 16th, 2007

tink necklaceI guarantee there’s not many of us girls out there who don’t adore Disney. Its definitely something you never grow too old for. I think it’s the magical characters and fantasy aspect of each movie that keeps me watching time and time again.

If like me you don’t just collect the DVD’s but you have stuffed toys and all sorts of other Disney memorabilia taking over any spare shelf space then you will love this jewellery range I have stumbled across when searching on www.asos.com – Disney Couture.

tink earringsThe best thing about this collection is that it focuses all around good old Tinkerbell – one of my all time favourite Disney characters. This Believe Tink necklace is £22, gold plated on a delicate chain and dangles with star chains and sparkles with diamanté and of course features a little Tink to add to the effect – perfect for all us girly girls!!

As part of this couture collection you can also find these Sitting Tink And Star large hoop earrings for £25. I think Tinkerbell looks great in these and is of course surrounded by her signatory stars! So if you have a Disney fan to buy for this Christmas, the couture collection would make the perfect pressie.
