Eclectic Eccentricity!

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Up, Up and Away! Hot Air Baloon NecklaceThis is such an exciting new jewellery range, something completely unique and gorgeous; let me introduce you to Eclectic Eccentricity!

Eclectic Eccentricity is only a couple of years old, it is made by a lady with a passion for vintage jewellery, she loves reworking into old vintage jewellery, using old pieces of chain, charms, beads and pendants to create in her own words; ‘something new, eclectic and slightly eccentric’ and the best part is because they’re vintage they’re mostly one off pieces! Hoorah!

Each piece of jewellery whether it be a necklace, brooch or ring has a cute little message behind it, the necklace I have chosen to show you is called ‘Up, Up and Away! Hot Air Balloon necklace,’ I love the detail in this necklace, its very cute and will only set you back £11! Purchase it online or browse through many of the other delights she has to offer! Check out the thoughtful descriptions of each piece in her collection, nice touch!

Nude Jewellery

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Nude Mens RingNude Jewellery is a great Mayfair boutique that now has a fab on line store ready for the x-mas rush!!

They stock creations from over 40 designers and to name but a few have original pieces such as hand-hammered gold disc earrings and giant bits of quartz that have been carved into rings. They even have ivory snakeskin cuffs for the more adventurous out there.

They pride themselves on stocking handmade jewellery and like to find the time to seek out up and coming and hard to find designers from all around the world so the collection available is very vast. They can even create custom made jewellery for any budget.

Nude Diamond RingLike many girls out there I have the hard task of finding something affordable yet personal for my man this x-mas. When I checked out Nude Jewellery I was surprised to find this contemporary and stylish ring for just £40. It looks way more expensive that it actually is so if you’re lucky you might be able to save yourself a few bob!!

To give you a good idea about the different price ranges you can find at Nude, it would be rude not to highlight this stunning diamond ring that costs a whopping £2375. In the diamond section of the on line shop, some pieces do not have a price tag so I guess that’s for the lucky ones where money is no object – we can all dream!!

Kennth Jay Lane Pavé Crystal Ring

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Kennth Jay Lane Pavé Crystal RingThis has to be the biggest, blingiest rings I think I’ve ever seen. Its just huge and each area of the ring is covered in Diamantés with a large rock in the middle for the extra wow factor.

It has been designed and created by Kenneth Jay Lane as a gold-tone crystal embellished cocktail ring – definitely not one for everyday use! It has an adjustable band inside and has a circumference of approx 4cm so should be suitable for all.

I know they say that diamonds are a girls best friend, but I’m thinking this lush diamanté delight comes a very close second indeed. Find this beauty at www.net-a-porter.com for a pricey £105, but hey you’re paying for the name and for a ring this glitzy, it doesn’t come cheap!

Adventurous Jewel Rings

Topshop Cocktail RingBig Jewel cocktail rings seem to be massive this season, they can be seen in all the new autumn/winter collections and they really don’t have to be expensive either.

Monsoon Cluster RingI managed to track down a couple of gorgeous but reasonably priced rings that can be all yours with just a quick trip to the highstreet. This colourful cocktail ring can be bought in store or on line from Topshop’s Freedom range. Its just £10 and features an array of mixed stones and measures 17mm in diameter.

Or if you can’t get your hands on one of these, another one of my favourites that I found was this Nova Cluster ring from Monsoon’s Accessorize collection. Its a cluster of faceted and round beads in browns and blues to give that dazzling jewel look. Again you can buy on line or in store and is a very reasonable £8.

On line fashion jewellery boutique Glitzy Secrets has just launched The Starlet collection that has taken its inspiration from Hollywood. Find both jewellery and hair accessories that have been influenced by the timeless style and glamour of all Hollywood starlets.

Starlet Jewellery

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 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.

Kenneth Jay Lane Black Dome Ring

Sunday, August 12th, 2007

Kenneth Jay Lane Black Dome RingMischa Barton has recently been spotted wearing this Kenneth Jay Lane Black Dome Ring. She’s kept accessories to a minimum with her loud outfit and it all works really well together.

The Austrian crystal is set within a black dome on a gold-plated band and is a unique piece. The dome measures 1”x1 ¼” in diameter and is available from Max & Chloe for $88.

This ring is a great addition to a casual day look, or can be worn to compliment a sexy outfit during a night out on the town.
