Think of Fifty shades of ..... GREEN.

Despite being so rare, Emerald jewellery can be surprisingly affordable for a few reasons.

Wearing Herkimer Diamond Earrings and ring

April Birthday Girls and their Birthstone

April babes are well known sticky beaks, always nosing about in things that don't concern them, they call it curiosity though ... So many April folk are crazy intuitive and you think that would lead to  better filter, but no.. they say it as they think it!
While the traditional birthstone for April is the Diamond, there are other gems that look similar without the hefty price tag, like Herkimer Diamonds and White Zircons.

Aquamarine - Birthstone for March

Aquamarine - Birthstone for March

Aquamarine, the beautiful gemstone that evokes the beauty, calm and the inspiration of the sea. A piece of aquamarine jewellery is a fabulous choice when shopping for a birthday gift in March. 

Not only are March babes generally great managers, but they can be super creative and more likely to be a musician than if born in a different month. There are more pilots with March birthdays and statistically people born in March have better eyesight.

Is It OK To Buy My Own Valentines Gift?

Is It OK To Buy My Own Valentines Gift?

This Valentines Day celebrate your own love for you. Buy your own Valentines gift. Forget the cheesy card though. That's not right. Don't buy yourself one of those.

You ARE allowed to think of yourself you know? You can buy your own Valentines present. Really. I give you permission. 

Don't be secretly disappointed when you don't receive something you deserve, take the pressure off and buy it for yourself.

How To Wear Pearls the Modern Way

How To Wear Pearls the Modern Way

You might ask 'Are pearls in fashion? or How do I wear pearls the modern way?'

And the answer is a big YES, pearls are back in fashion!

I'm willing to bet you won't open a fashion magazine this season that doesn't feature pearl jewellery.Now I don't blame you for previously thinking that pearls were something you didn't wear or could borrow from your Grandmother if you ever needed to.

The key word here though is PREVIOUSLY.

Sterling Silver and Gemstone Jewellery

What’s the difference between Sterling Silver, Silver Overlay and Silver Plated Jewellery?

Sometimes you want a stunning high quality piece to wear often or daily that will last forever, like a silver bangle or a gemstone ring or a pair of quality earrings. from time to time you merely want a fashion piece to wear for a special occasion or just to wear every now and then and you don’t want to spend the earth! Maybe you're searching for a gift and the price point will be an important part of your choice.

What Are Baroque Pearls?

What Are Baroque Pearls?

The perfectly imperfect Baroque Pearl is both boho and elegant, classic and modern, casual and formal.

A breathtaking contradiction of natural beauty, all unique in colour and shape and irregularly beautiful.

Each of these remarkable natural gems is a delicate treasure which has been sculpted by nature.

Baroque Pearls are fascinating natural gems that are freeform shapes, no two can ever be identical.
