2012 has come to an end, and we’ve had a brilliant year at fabulous!
Jo Stroud, owner of Fabulous, was selected as one of the ‘Hot 100’ in the jewellery industry; our Bath store moved to be bigger and better, whilst we opened a new Pandora concept store alongside it; the year saw many new arrivals to the fabulous team in all our stores and on the web team, and new designers joined our collections such as Diamonfire & Pure Attraction, including an ever growing collection of watches, with new designers such as Lulu Guinness & Glamrock!
Now we look forward to 2013, a new year for more diverse and vibrant collections, new celebrations, and of course new year resolutions (which we will keep this time!). Keep up to date with all that is happening at fabulous by following us on twitter and facebook, and keep checking our blog for the latest trends, events and the know on the best collections throughout the year!
Let us begin the new year with a guide for all things fabulous for January and the best designer pieces to add to your collection or to give as a special gift for a celebration this month.
We currently have up to 70% off designer pieces making this the best time to add to your collection or someone else’s! Get online for some fantastic discounts on designers such as Lola Rose, Chan Luu, Alex Munroe and more. For all those Chlobo fans out there, we currently have 50% off selected pieces, including the fun Ice Pop collection! We also have something for our male customers, with 25% of Toy watches and 50% off bracelets and cufflinks from designers such as Fred Bennett!
Birthstones & Zodiac signs
The official birthstone for January is the beautiful Garnet, a semi-precious stone also known as the “Pomegranate Stone” due to its deep red colour and resemblance to the fruit. The Garnet signifies loyalty and friendship whilst it gives the wearer commitment and truth. Thomas Sabo’s deep red garnet charm is the perfect charm for all those fiery personalities, which would look stunning hanging from Thomas Sabo’s Black Obsidian Bracelet!
Those born between December 22nd – January 19th have the zodiac sign Capricorn, whilst those born between January 20th – February 18th have the zodiac sign Aquarius. Team a birthstone charm with a zodiac charm in collections from Nomination, Thomas Sabo or Pandora for a personal and unique accessory! Thomas Sabo’s charm bracelets can hold up to three charms, whilst with Nomination and Pandora, you can mix them in with as many as you like!
Ideal for special birthdays or occasions are initial charms and bracelets, featured in collections from Trollbeads, Nomination and Daisy. Another favourite is Trollbeads Little Silver Scroll bead which gives you 10 characters x 10 lines to compose a personal message for someone special, or to mark an occasion!
For a romantic touch, look no further than Linda Macdonald or Sphere of Life who feature delicate collections of necklaces. The beautiful Scribbles necklace from Linda features 9ct Gold, whilst Sphere’s Unity necklace signifies that “we are inseparable”.
New year, new wardrobe
Up date your look and sparkle at every occasion with a beautiful set! For something eye catching, choose a sparkling Tresor Paris bracelet and earrings, whilst for a subtle edge, Fiorelli and John Rocha ooze sophistication in Sterling Silver. For some glamour at work, accessorise with a brand new watch from Radley or Glam Rock and set the trend!
