  • Turquoise Jewellery is perfect for summer fashion

    ChloBo's Sundance Collection

    Turquoise Jewellery

    Turquoise is a beautiful semi-precious gemstone that has been worn around the world for centuries with best sources of it now in Australia, Iran, Afghanistan, Tibet and south-western USA. It was used in Egyptian adornments by nobility and used to flaunt the wealth and splendour of the wearer. Used in many jewellery items along with lapis lazuli and gold, this was the favourite stone of the kings. Ranging from pale blue to a deep azure this stone is easy to spot and echo’s summery delights.

    Whilst being a simply gorgeous bright stone, it also has been said to hold many healing and grounding properties. Physical ailments it can assist in are stress, strengthening immune system and relaxes cramps amongst others. As the birthstone for December and the stone of friendship, this stone is perfect for a gift and is one of the oldest protection amulets.

    Turquoise in jewellery

    For Spring/Summer 2015 collections, we see turquoise making a firm stance as the favourite stone for the season. ChloBo's summer Sundance Gold Ultimate Stack, £295, really manages to capture the essence of hazy summer, evenings, beaches and maybe a cocktail or two! With this ready set stack of bracelets you can accessorise your summer outfits perfectly and simply.

    A new design from Hot Diamonds, this adjustable and stackable Silver and Turquoise Bangle, £39.95, in their Emozioni range features vibrant turquoise coloured stones, sterling silver and their branded feature pendant. We just love this wearable Turquoise Charm Bracelet, £29.95, by Thomas Sabo. Other designers have copied this stone bracelet design, but this will always be the original! Perfect for summer, perfect to individualise by adding the Charm Club Charms!

    Silver Tree Jewellery began its journey more than 30 years ago with Patricia Gibson at the helm of the cities only specialist sterling silver store and now with son Oliver taking charge, this jewellery boutique has gone from strength to strength.

    So we couldn’t be prouder to announce that this year we have been nominated for the ‘branded jewellery retailer of the year award’ by the Retail Jeweller Awards.

    This prestigious event has been likened to the jewellery industries equivalent of The Oscars and will take place at the Tower of London on June 17th 2015 and we’ll be there dressed to the nines and of course modelling some of the cutting edge jewellery fashions we are famous for.

    The Retail Jewellery Magazine has been serving the industry for many years and is known nationally as a central hub for jewellery retailers. Along with ourselves, four other jewellery retail leaders from around the UK have been nominated.  The judging panel are a selection of 26 well versed jewellery aficionados from around the UK, including managing directors of chain store Beaverbrooks, chief executives of the National Association of Goldsmiths and the British Jewellery Association.  To be recognised and nominated for this award is such a great achievement in itself but to win would really be the icing on the cake, so wish us luck for the 17th June!

    Georgia May Jagger for Thomas Sabo

    This new jewellery trend is taking the industry by storm!  For the uninitiated or slightly confused, earring jackets refer to an earring where the focal point is not only the front of the earring but the back or a removable rim that can fit around the earring. This year we see earring jackets ranging from a below the lobe drop to a segment reaching around the ear which are bang on trend for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. To really show off this exciting earring fashion I would suggest wearing your hair up or at least swept free from one side of the face to fully show the design off.

    This design from the German fashion pioneers, Thomas Sabo, features sterling silver with oxidized pattern highlights. Really striking edgy design from their ‘Kathmandu’ range, with bangles to match.

    Skin Better - Free

    skinbetter1     skinbetter2

    Skin Better is a smart new tool that analyzes your skin, giving you a closer look at what you’re not seeing. It analyzes and highlights the possible skin issues you may have and offers product recommendations based on scientific research. As it is nearly impossible for most of us to match our skins needs with the appropriate product, Skin Better can give you the answers the Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon would.

    Who is this app useful for?

    This app is useful for every woman who is concerned about her skin, although it is more appropriate for the older woman as young adults tend to have little skin problems, it can still analyze and tell you skin care treatments if needed.

    Pros and Cons?

    Pros - Whilst shopping people are always trying to sell you products that you don’t really need, whereas this app shows results that are scientifically recommended for you personally and it analyzes for many different skin issues you may have and asks you about your own personal concerns, so it can help you in the most effective way possible.
    Cons - Lighting is everything when taking a picture, so if the quality of the picture is bad the chances are that your results will not be as accurate and this app can only highlight so many skin problems, meaning there may be more than what can be seen so do not take this analysation as the definite answer if you do have real concerns seek medical advice.
