I’m a fan of: Thomas Sabo and Fiorelli

My trend is: Seven Seas (take the quiz here to find yours)

On my summer wish list: This summer I’m really into bright colours and would like to get some of the Alex and Ani ‘The Pursuit of Persephone’ bangles, I love the range of colours, the shiny metals and floral designs. Another item I’d like in my jewellery collection is a Fiorelli cuff, the vibrant colours and tones are perfect for the summer and would be the perfect festival accessory.

VIP Fabulous Garden Party: The Bath Priory

Sixty women from Bath mingled with famous jewellery designers at the second annual Fabulous Bath Garden Party hosted at the Bath Priory Hotel on Thursday 27th June. Guests included trend-setting designers Dinny Hall and Chloe Moss (ChloBo).

Jo Stroud, owner of Fabulous designer jewellery store in Southgate, and store manager Becky Johnson welcomed the guests who arrived at midday for Pimm’s. Jo said: “We believe all the collections that we stock at Fabulous have three things in common: they are beautifully designed, well-made, and very wearable.

The beautiful Cloud9 collection from Chlobo has arrived here at fabulous and we’ve wasted no time trying on each piece and picking our favourites!! Whether you are new to Chlobo or already an avid collector, we know you are going to love these new season designs!

Featuring Labradorite, Red Tigers Eye and Bamboo Coral stones combined with symbols of protection and love, this collection is stunning and perfect for jewellery lovers who love to stack and layer! Even more, for the first time, Chlobo has used Gold plating giving some of Chlobo’s most popular designs a new edge and beach-ready look.

RTESTACKGOLDBC2DRAGONFLY

This new collection was inspired by Chloe’s trip to Lake Como last year where she attended a friends wedding. Each stone was chosen in reminder of the scenery and atmosphere of Lake Como from its glistening waters to the red sky at night. Labradorite is a healing stone known as the stone of spiritual wakening and is a lovely stone for the sunshine in a fresh grey tone. Red Tigers Eye is a stone believed to bring success and good fortune which glistens with faceted beads in bracelets teamed with symbols of protection and happiness. Bamboo Coral is said to bring wisdom and is one of the seven treasures in Buddhist scripture. In many of the pieces, this stone has been teamed with 24ct Gold Vermeil for a lovely summer’s accessory!

The Mini Cute Bracelets already so popular in Sterling Silver (with fabulous & celebrities alike!) are now available in 24ct Gold Vermeil which will look fab stacked together! We particularly love the Cute Bracelet with a Dragonfly, a stylish good luck charm and a symbol of magic!

Be the first to get this collection and shop online here with free delivery! We also offer free gift wrap too, perfect if you want to give a loved one a stylish Easter treat!

ChloBo ‘After Dark’ Collection

As the city’s lights switch on at dusk, the place becomes a twinkling kingdom and the glitz and glam come out to play. It was whilst having dinner in a restaurant called 360, high above the rooftops with the stunning city below, that I thought of the name for this collection – After Dark!” Chloe Moss

The gorgeous After Dark collection from ChloBo was inspired by Chloe’s trip to Istanbul and its sparkly additions are the perfect pieces to compliment the metallic trends for A/W 2012.

Featuring Haematite and Pyrite stones combined with symbols of protection and love, this collection is simply stunning and a must have addition to your stack this season!

As with ChloBo’s other collections, the stones and symbols in After Dark have been chosen carefully with regard to their symbolism. Haematite is a calming stone that is said to balance out emotions and energies, whilst Pyrite’s resemblance to Gold made it a traditional symbol for money and good luck. These are comprised with Sterling Silver and Rhodium plating, chosen to enhance the sparkle of the semi precious stones! The Hamsa Hand, Peace Sign and Cross symbols are used in this collection which have become recognisable ChloBo charms. The Hamsa Hand is a protective sign that is said to bring happiness, health and good fortune; the Peace sign is a symbol of love and tranquillity; and the Cross is worn for protection and to ward off evil.

Also included in this collection are some gorgeous stud earrings that will look fabulous worn with your ChloBo stack!

This stunning collection is available in our stores and online at, so be the first to give your ChloBo collection a touch of sparkle!

Professional Jeweller Hot 100 party

After a busy day of browsing AW12 collections at IJL and a brief moment at the ‘GQ Men of the Year’ red carpet, Sinade and Anna from Solihull joined other guests from the jewellery industry at the Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden to celebrate Jo Stroud being recognised as one of the Hot 100…

The party, hosted by Professional Jeweller, kicked off at 7.30pm in the historic Freemason’s Hall, with guests ushered into the grand room at 8.50pm to hear the names of all the Trendsetters, Retail Stars, Business Big Shots, Trailblazers and Nextgems of the jewellery industry for 2012.

Sinade and Anna took their seats in the hall alongside Jo Stroud, owner of fabulous, eagerly anticipating the list.  When Jo Stroud was announced as a Retail Star they couldn’t help but cheer and support Jo as she was recognised, deservingly for her hard work and achievements over the past year.

Jo wasn’t the only familiar name at fabulous to be recognised, Tresor Paris’ Lillian Louski and ChloBo’s Chloe Moss also got their name in the 2012 list!

After the big reveal it was party time, guests worked their way back into the main hall and enjoyed live music, celebratory drinks and delicious canapés whilst mingling with and congratulating the Hot 100!
