Meet The Team - Dannielle

It's been challenging learning new skills after being mostly a stay at home mum for a while and I've found that I love learning new things, putting my brain to work and developing computer skills.

Also I love looking at the beautiful gems all day, being part of a team and getting to know our customers.

Rose Quartz is definitely my favourite gemstone, I love that it represents love, all kinds of love. Family love, romantic love and importantly love for yourself and looking after ourselves. The colour is gentle, beautiful and it makes me happy.

April Birthstone - Diamond - Why White Topaz is a perfect substitute!

April Birthstone - Diamond - Why White Topaz is a perfect substitute!

Individuals with April birthdays are said to be work-oriented, passionate, hard working and loyal folks, which makes them a handy friend to have.

you're lucky enough to be born in April, you will likely already know that the April Birthstone is none other than the Diamond. This stone is known for its durability and healing powers, with the Diamond birthstone being a beacon for longevity, strength, beauty and happiness. What a stone!

The downside to this beautiful stone? Diamonds are extremely rare and as such, are extremely expensive.

Is it OK to buy my own Valentine's 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.

What is Larimar?

What is Larimar?

What is Larimar?  Lovely Larimar, the charming crystal with the soul of the sea is something every woman wants in her collection. 

Being such a rare stone and only being available from one location means that quantities of Larimar availble are diminishing. As it becomes harder to get hold of the value increases. Once it’s gone … it’s gone.

Are Zodiac Pendants Popular?

As an Astrology student (and Customer Service Support Extraordinaire at Desiderate) I am, of course quite biased when answering this question. Knowing Astrology as well as I do and using it in my everyday personal and professional life I would wholeheartedly agree. With the increase of Facebook and Instagram ads it’s no surprise that the algorithm that seeks out my searches usually spits out numerous advertisements selling anything from astrology tea towels to astrology bed linen and of course astrology jewellery.

where to buy jewellery online

Why Shop Online?

You can do it anytime, any day of the week.  How fun is it when you can’t sleep so you turn on your phone and you start seeing fashion or jewellery ads pop up and next thing it’s 2 am and you are the proud new owner of three rings, 2 x pairs of shoes and an Air Fryer!

Just takes your mind off the insomnia for a brief moment in time, helps balance out that serotonin to help engage back to sleep.
