November Blog   Those with November birthdays have two beautiful birthstones to choose from: topaz and citrine. Topaz comes in a rainbow of colours; citrine is prized for its charming yellow and orange hues. Both November birthstones are known to have calming energies, while bringing fortune and warmth to the wearer. Our range features pink and blue topaz.  The blue is divided into 3 shades, the palest is Sky Blue, brighter blue is Swiss Blue and the deep blue is known as London Blue.  We also have Neptune Topaz earrings, which display a depth of ocean coloured hues.  Pink topaz...

October Blog The leaves are on the turn and it’s getting a bit nippy in the morning.  Evenings are drawing in and although its only just October, the temptation to put on the heating is getting ever stronger!  With the drop in temperature it’s time to take a look in the wardrobe and sort through all those clothes I thought I’d wear this summer and didn’t.  Then I need to take a serious look at what I have for Autumn.  I’ve no doubt that my Autumn wardrobe would benefit from a few new accessories and Autumn coloured jewels have never...

  This month’s birthstone is sapphire, one of our original precious gemstones, traditionally thought of as blue, it’s also available in array of fancy colours such as pink, yellow and orange. Our beautiful bird brooches feature sapphires in the wings of our blue tit, swallow and hummingbird, but if birds aren’t your thing, then check out our blue topaz pear shaped pendant. The sizeable central gemstone is surrounded by blue sapphires – it’s a lovely colour combination for those who love blue or with blue eyes. Our pearl earrings have white sapphires, that could easily pass for diamonds… and don’t...

August’s birthstones are both green – perfect to match the landscape during Summer. The first is jade, this most ancient of semi-precious stones, available in a variety of colours when dyed and of course its natural colour, which is the palest of greens. Thought to bring the wearer luck, it is the Chinese stone for good fortune and makes a great birthday gift. The second birthstone is peridot. Its yellowy green is such an easy colour to wear whether you’re blonde, brunette, auburn or fighting the grey! As with most gems, its surrounded with myth and legend and has been...

Ruby – July’s birthstone This much-loved precious gemstone is one of the few truly red stones. It does vary through pink and purple tones, but the finest rubies are vivid red and come from Myanmar. Rubies feature heavily in Indian wedding jewellery, as red is thought to bring good luck and the wedding saree is often a red one, emblazoned with gold threadwork – and very heavy to wear! We all know what a ruby looks like, but you may not have come across the much rarer Star Ruby. This is an amazing stone which due to light refraction and...

June’s birthstone is the pearl, so what a fabulous opportunity to talk about my favourite gemstone! Cool to the touch and warm to wear, pearls are nature’s gift to the jeweller. Representing purity and devotion, and a firm favourite of the Royals from Elizabeth I to The Duchess of Cambridge, pearls can be fashioned into many different styles. Pearls are never out of the limelight – available in long ropes to delicate pendants, there is a style to suit everyone. Dyed pearls mean they are also in myriad colours too and modern farming techniques mean freshwater cultured pearls are keenly...
