Marc Jacob Cuff

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Marc Jacobs CuffForget bracelets, a cuff is the what everyone’s adorning their wrists with. From beaded, to wood, to Swarovski crystals, cuffs are made from anything and everything. They’re available in a more traditional bangle shape to a full on wrist band, and with such variety there’s bound to be one to suit all tastes.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs Crazy bow cuff has an on-trend bow embellishment on the front and is easy to wear. It’s metallic, granite like colours sets it apart, and the bows give it a frivolous feel. Simply squeeze the sides so it grips your wrist.

At only £55 it’s affordable and will last you all through next season. Team it with jeans and a jacket for a casual look, or use it to add a bit of sparkle to evening wear. Get it round your wrist now, from Net a Porter.

Roberto Cavalli Choker

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Cavalli NecklaceThis gorgeous head turner of a choker by Roberto Cavalli is just what a summery outfit needs. I can picture this with a nice white dress, gladiator sandals and an oversized handbag. With the rounded bottom boasting the chunky gold decoration, you will find it hard not to want to wear it more often than not!

At £370 it isn’t the cheapest summer accessory you could buy but if you find it too hard to resist then you can buy the Roberto Cavalli Stamped metal choker online at Net-a-porter.

Christian Lacroix Crystal Cuffs

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Bright tropical accessories are a must for the spring and these Christian Lacroix bangles are perfect to jazz up a simple outfit, especially the pink version. The rounded cuffs have the crystal initials ‘CL’ and a signature stamp on the inside. The black cuff is nude on the underside and the pink cuff has a black underside.

Christian Lacroix Crystal Logo Cuffs

At £295 each, they’re not the cheapest accessories around but you have to admit they are fabulous! Both the pink crystal logo cuff and the black crystal logo cuff can be bought at Net-a-porter.

Karen Millen Signature Chain Bracelet

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

iconAs I was browsing the House of Fraiser jewellery section in search of a birthday gift I came across this Signature Chain Bracelet. It’s a little more than I was looking to spend and have found something else now but I simply had to show it off. It has been created by top designer Karen Millen and is available on the website for £50.

Its quite a chunky design so not suitable to wear with an elegant evening dress. It would however definitely jazz up a simple outfit and is probably best to wear as a single piece rather than going over the top; layering up your arm with silver!

The bracelet is made from costume silver and has a logo carabiner clasp for fastening, beautiful!

Kenneth Jay Lane Oval Bangle Set

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

Oval Bangle SetThese set of beauties are absolutely stunning!! I love the combination of the colours – definitely a hot look this season.

The actual colours are known as Jade and Ivory are bought to us by famous jewellery designer Kenneth Jay Lane, so yes they do have a hefty price tag at £70.00. They also have a small gold plaque with a KJL emblem on the back to help justify their price.

Piling on the bangles and beads is all part of this seasons chic tribal look. What makes these Kenneth Jay Lane Oval bangle set so great is that they have an uneven finish so they can be worn together or separately – I can’t imagine why anyone would want to separate these beauties though!! All you need to do to become a proud owner is log on to and start flashing your cash.

They are the type of earring that could be worn come day or night. You could really dress them up with a sexy black number or more simply add a classic touch to a plain tee and jeans.

Erickson Beamon @ Debenhams

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

ebrosecuff.jpgThe flamboyant duo have once again come together to create yet another fab collection of handcrafted jewellery for popular department store Debenhams.

This new range of glitzy dress up decorations will re-create the feeling you once had when you were younger and rummaged through your mums jewellery box to find a shiny piece and having that overwhelming feeling that you have in fact struck gold!!

EB – as the range is known is a designer diffusion line that has recently hit the stores. The stand out costume jewellery will glam up any rock t-shirt or will add the finishing touch to your favourite party frock. Each piece has the added bonus of looking like it has come straight from a couture cabinet at Tiffany but without the hefty price tag.

The collection is so vast it’s hard to choose my favourite pieces, but I think for me this silver coloured diamante rose cuff wins hands down. This piece is the ultimate accessory needed to draw attention to yourself. It’s £65.00 but once on it literally looks a million dollars!!

This is gorgeous designer jewellery that deserves to be worn as though it’s a family heirloom!!

Net-a-porter Sale

Citrine BanglesWell girls after hectic xmas and new year celebrations there is only one thing left to look forward too – the January sales of course!! Get those purses out and spend whatever is left over after the xmas spending spree – not much in my case!!

I think jewellery makes a great sale purchase as most items remain in fashion and you’re unlikely to ever grow out of it – always a bonus, unlike with clothes after one too many mince pies over the festive period.

Net-a-porter has reduced a huge selection of goodies and although their pieces can be quite pricey, if you’re after a good quality designer item then they’re definitely worth a visit.

These Citrine by the Stones Peace bangles really caught my eye. I love the use of bright colours to help cheer up these dull dark winter days. They are gold plated and come in green, blue and white and each are inscribed with ‘Peace for Cambodia’ on the inside. They have a whopping 30% off with a sale price of £94.50. All you have to do is sit down, log on and browse these gorgeous jewellery reductions.

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
