  • A Walk Around the Shop

    Did you know that we have a jewellery shop in Liverpool? We're based in Little Crosby Village, a pretty rural village near to Crosby (in between Southport and Liverpool). We're based in a converted barn which means that our shop looks pretty awesome. We have bare stone walls and big wooden beams that are the perfect backdrop to our sparkling jewellery displays.

    Little Crosby Village is a pretty village with old cottages and farm buildings, surrounded by fields. It's only about 10 minutes away from Crosby Beach where you'll find Antony Gormley's 'Another Place' installation. We're pretty luck to work where we do!

    A while ago Google came to take a 360 panoramic tour of our shop which you can see below. Just follow the arrows to walk inside the shop and take a tour inside. Can you spot Holly our office sausage dog?

    If you're in the Liverpool area then come and see us!

  • Dogeared Karma Necklace in Tatler

    Our best selling and much loved karma necklace by Dogeared featured in February's Tatler magazine. Worn by the stunning actress Gabriella Wilde, the necklace is from her own personal jewellery collection. We love the way it works with her casual, relaxed clothing style. For the shoot she's wearing the classic karma necklace which we have available in 16 and 18 inch versions.

    Dogeared Karma Jewellery in Tatler

    Dogeared's karma jewellery collection has always been one of our best sellers, not only because of the gorgeous styles, but because of the meaning behind the jewellery. I'm a big believer in karma and it seems that our customers are too. Each item of karma jewellery comes on a card that reads:

    What goes around, comes around...wear your necklace as a reminder to keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving.

    It's a lovely message isn't it? Do you own any karma jewellery? Do you have  a special story behind it? Let me know below and we might blog about you!

  • Rose Gold Love: New Necklaces by Dogeared

    We do love a bit of rose gold here at Accessories Online. Our rose gold love overfloweth with these pretty new necklaces from our friends at Dogeared. Handmade in California, we have three classic necklace styles that have been given a rose gold makeover. We have 'infinite love' with an infinity symbol, 'wish' with a tiny wishbone charm and 'guardian angel' with a pair of dainty angel wings.

    Each necklace comes on a message card bearing a beautiful, meaningful message. The necklaces are also gift boxed - an added bonus if you're giving one as a gift. The less gift wrapping you have to do the better (my philosophy).

    Rose Gold Wishbone NecklaceThe rose gold jewellery trend has been huge for quite a while now and it shows no sign of slowing down. It's such a warm, summery tone that looks great with a tan. Also known as pink gold or red gold, it's made by mixing copper into the gold which gives the metal a warm, pinky tone.

    Rose Gold Angel Wings NecklaceWhat I love about these necklaces is that they're very petite and dainty. They look pretty awesome layered up too. What do you think? You can shop them here.

  • Hot New Bracelets from Dogeared

    We've completely in love with our latest Dogeared jewellery arrivals - these gorgeous make a wish bracelets on chain. Set on chunky rolo chain bracelets, they have handy extender chains so you can wear them at the perfect length. They're available in silver and gold dipped versions. If you're looking for a meaningful gift then you really can't go wrong with these sweet new Dogeared bracelets.

    This is the 'All is Well' bracelet by Dogeared with a hamsa hand charm. It should be worn as a reminder that things are just fine. Hamsa hands are said to offer protection to the wearer. I'd give this a gift to somebody who needed a little reassurance in their life.

    Dogeared Bracelets at AccessoriesOnline.co.ukI love the infinity bracelet below. Featuring the iconic infinity charm, it's on a substantial chain bracelet (perfect for clumsy oafs like myself). Infinity jewellery is still a huge jewellery trend at the moment so not only is this a meaningful bracelet, but it's the height of fashion too.

  • Top Tips: How to Clean and Care for Silver Jewellery

    Being experts in all things jewellery, we thought we'd write a handy guide on how to keep your silver jewellery looking perfect for years to come. It's perfectly normal for silver jewellery to tarnish from time to time. The good news is that by following our tips for caring for silver you'll be able to prevent tarnish and easily clean it when it does happen. It's simple!

    Ti Sento Silver Bangle available at AccessoriesOnline.co.uk

    What causes silver to tarnish?

    There are a few things that can cause your silver jewellery to tarnish. Perfumes, body lotions, hair products and even sweaty skin can cause tarnish. Harmful chemicals such as detergents and chlorine can also contribute. Have you had an item of silver jewellery that you've not worn for ages and has tarnished? It will be unprotected exposure to air that's caused it. Silver Karma Circle Necklace

    How to stop silver tarnishing.

    1. Store your jewellery properly. Silver tarnishes when in contact with air, so keeping it in airtight bags helps. I store my silver jewellery in ziplock bags in my jewellery box. Keeping your jewellery safely stored away from light and air will help prevent tarnish.
    2. Make sure that any lotions are fully absorbed into the skin and that perfume has dried before putting your jewellery on.
    3. Remove your jewellery before gardening, cleaning or any other activities that will make you sweat.
    4. Never, ever wear your jewellery when swimming. Chlorine causes all kinds of damage to silver.
    5. After wearing your silver jewellery, wipe it with a cotton cloth to remove any body oils, beauty products or chemicals that could cause it to tarnish. Don't use kitchen paper or tissues as they can cause tiny scratches.
    6. Clean silver jewellery frequently to keep it in perfect condition.

    How to clean silver jewellery

    1. Make your own home made silver cleaner with baking powder. Take a small bowl, line it with aluminium foil then add hot water, a tablespoon of baking soda and stir. Place the jewellery in the solution for about one minute, rinse clean and let it air dry.
    2. If you have a build up of dirt in hard to reach places, just put washing-up liquid in a bowl of water and soak over night.
    3. Use a commercial silver dip. These can be picked up in most supermarkets. Simply dip the silver into the cleaner and it will instantly remove tarnish. Be careful when using commercial silver cleaners with some gemstones and pearls - it can damage them.
    4. Use a silver polishing cloth. These special cloths are impregnated with a silver cleaner. Just wipe your jewellery with the cloth to remove tarnish. Great for smooth surfaced jewellery, but tricky for tarnish in hard to reach places.
