Christmas Gifts Ideas for Jewellery Lovers

Posted on December 16, 2015

gift-ideas-for-jewellery-lovers

Hi Guys!

When it comes to jewellery, I really am a magpie. I started collecting 70’s and 80’s jewellery many years ago, and though I don’t pick any vintage pieces up these days, I still have to look at jewellery whenever I go shopping, I’m like a moth to a flame. I’ve put together a few ideas for Christmas jewellery gifts today, they’re all affordable and definitely won’t break the bank, and some are from well known brands while some are lesser known. I hope you enjoy!

silver-bunny-ring-holder

Ok let’s start with this Silver Bunny Ring Holder (£8.95), isn’t it just the sweetest thing? The perfect gift for anyone that likes to swap between different rings on a regular basis, this Bunny Ring Holder will keep rings safe and sound whilst looking gorgeous displayed on any dressing table. I love that it’s a functional item whilst being quirky yet chic – oh and under a tenner too!

Glittering-Double-Wrap-Bracelet

Or what about this lovely Glittering Double Wrap Bracelet (£19.95) – this bracelet is just so pretty, and in neutral colours so it’s easy to wear too. It wraps around the wrist twice, featuring two different types of beads so it actually looks like two bracelets. It’s made of leather so it’s hard wearing, and will look fantastic as a casual or dressed up accessory.

Rio-Grande-Lavender-Quartz-Ring

I’m in love with this stunning Rio Grande Lavender Quartz Ring (£65.00) it’s such an unusual colour and catches the light beautifully. The stone is massive – and it’s such a gorgeous shape for a cocktail ring. I just need an event to go to so I can wear it now! 🙂

Freya-Necklace-in-Sterling-Silver

Or if you prefer necklaces, what about this Freya Necklace in Sterling Silver (£45.00). This necklace is simple, beautiful and yet somewhat unusual. It features two organic shapes, inspired by dried up autumn leaves, which I think is a lovely concept.

ted-baker-arrow-earrings

And lastly, I just had to include some rose gold! These Ted Baker Arrow Small Drop Earrings (£25.00) are really dainty and pretty, and a complete bargain at only £25.00! Ted Baker produce some of the most gorgeous clothing and gifts, but I hadn’t really taken much notice of their jewellery range before – I’m so glad I have now though as I’ve added a few more pieces to my Christmas list! Definitely check out their jewellery range if you’re a fan of TB!

I’d love to hear if any of these pieces have caught your eye? Or if there’s any jewellery on your Christmas list this year?

Jewel Candle Review & Giveaway!

Posted on November 12, 2014

Hi Guys!

I’ve really found my love for candles increasing as the seasons change, there’s something about a nice cosy evening at home with a candle lit that really appeals to me. My latest addition is a Jewel Candle in Cookies and Cream. If you haven’t heard of Jewel Candle you’ve definitely been missing out – every candle comes with a tiny package hiding somewhere in the wax, containing a surprise piece of jewellery – this is a must for any candle fan!

When you purchase a Jewel Candle you choose the candle scent, and also if you’d like a ring or earrings. I went for the ring option as I don’t wear earrings very often. Your jewellery item is guaranteed to be made of sterling silver, and valued up to £250! The exciting part is you don’t know what you’re going to get, or the value of your item!

The candle arrived securely packaged, and it was a lot bigger than I was expecting! It’s 16cm high and weights 800g. The burn time is around 120 hours too so I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it! I loved that you can see the silver foil package through the glass – it’s also nice that it’s placed towards the top of the candle so you don’t have to burn it forever to get the package out.

After around 4 hours the wax was soft enough to let me pick the foil parcel out. Getting it out was a messy job, so I’d recommend you prepare yourself before attempting extraction! I ended up picking it out with a pair of tweezers and unwrapping the package on some kitchen roll. The wax was really super slimy so I couldn’t take any pictures at this point!

I ended up with a lovely delicate silver ring that fits my middle finger perfectly. Jewel Candle used to tell you the value of your item on the tag but they don’t seem to do this any more, if you’re interested to find out the value you can always go to a jewellery shop. I’d imagine mr ring is worth somewhere around the £10 – £15 mark.

I’m really happy with my candle and my ring, I think a Jewel Candle would make an excellent christmas gift for a candle lover!
