This week on the red carpet Jennifer Lawrence was promoting the latest Hunger Games film (Hunger Games fan? Check this out!) avec a cute crop. Short hair styles are the perfect way to show off stunning earrings, and Jennifer took full advantage. Get creative with a cuff, or wear your drops along your lobes like Jennifer. Jennifer’s earrings are by Ana Khouri and our version are from Fiorelli, designer jewellery at a fraction of the cost.

Victoria Beckham is the epitome of a classic dresser, she combines simple and elegant style with luxe accessories like these beautiful Chopard earrings in striking Emerald green. Statement earrings are huge this season and they’re a great way to add a pop of colour to your party outfit. Vibrant coloured stones will continue to be a big fashion story influenced by Dolce and Gabbana’s AW collection and of course the Kate Middleton effect. We love Fiorelli’s vibrant crystal drops, chic, understated with plenty of glamour factor.

Nicole Scherzinger looked absolutely stunning last week on The X Factor, sporting a breathtaking gown covered in sequins and sparkle!

So if you’re going big on the dress, take a leaf out of Nicole’s book and keep the accessories simple. Nicole is a huge fan of Dinny Hall and was also spotted in Nikki Lissoni this week!

That’s our round up of Jewellery looks for today – let us know which look you love and what you’re adding to your wishlist!

Christmas Gifts for Teenagers: Presents Worth Tweeting About!

It can be really hard finding new ideas for teenagers every Christmas, as it’s so easy to buy the ‘wrong’ brand in their eyes, or something that just isn’t on trend. It’s especially hard if you’re buying for a friend’s kids, rather than close family.

Jo Stroud and Sinade Prosser are our head buyers and it’s their task to seek out what is hot and not in the eyes of teenagers. Along with the web team, they keep a close eye on the fashion press, as well as social media and top blogs to see what everyone wants to be seen in. Celebrity endorsements are a big part of the ‘cool’ factor, as well as European and American trends.

“We know our customers really well, and we know how hard they find it to come up with thoughtful gifts for those difficult teenage years. We spend hours on our customers’ behalf seeking out perfect treasures, and highlighting them as ‘Fab 5’ gifts in our Christmas Catalogue and on-line, to make it even easier.”

These five gifts meet the brief exactly – must-have gifts they’ll be tweeting about on Christmas Day, and still talking about when they get back to school!

November Birthstone Jewellery

Beth from our Leamington Spa store explains the history of the beautiful gemstone Citrine, the official birthstone for November.

Official birthstone of November: Citrine saboh
Zodiac sign: Scorpio & Sagittarius 

The official birthstone for the month of November is Citrine which is an exotic, translucent golden brown to yellow colour. This stone has often been referred to as ‘the stone of the mind’ where many ancient cultures believed that placing it on the foreheads of strong, independent women would grant them psychic powers.

The Citrine stone originates from Madeira Spain but is derived from the French word ‘Citron’ reflecting the lemon saturation of the gemstone. It is a symbol of love and affection believed to increase self esteem, open the mind to think clearer and rid the body of any negative energy. It’s thought to combine your emotions, intuitions and thoughts into one, singular harmony. This gemstone is the perfect jewellery gift to buy for a loved one, family member or close companion.

The gemstone is a variety of quartz, the mineral which is frequently heated to bring out its fierce golden, yellow colour. Overall it is a brighter and purer yellow than Golden Topaz an alternative birthstone for November. During the Romantic period, skilled artisans would emphasise the warmth of the Citrine to enhance the gold jewellery colour. With qualities including durability, beauty and affordability, Citrine makes a great choice for everyday wear.
