  • Items we love: Karen Millen Crystal Sprinkle Linked Heart Bangle

    Karen Millen Crystal Sprinkle Linked Heart BangleWe're total suckers when it comes to pretty bangles (particularly when they're from Karen Millen's collection), and this Crystal Sprinkle Linked Heart Bangle? is the jewellery equivalent of an 80's heartthrob. It's a little bit retro and a little bit kitsch, but - like Christian Slater in Heathers - totally dreamy at the same time. If this were a person, it would totally wear a leather jacket and ask you to hop on the back of its motorbike.

    It's also one of the more unique new jewellery arrivals we've received for Spring/Summer 2014. One bangle is in a shiny silver colour, sprinkled with crystals and the other is in a shiny gold. They are linked together as a symbol of love (making it the perfect gift to give to someone you're looking to get it on with.)

    OK, so we know that Valentine's Day was over a month ago. But we think that if you're looking to show someone you care this month, you could do a lot worse.

  • Sparkle Sparkle! Five of our favourite sparkly bracelets

    It's Autumn. The days are getting grayer and shorter, the weather's getting colder and people are starting to drop the dreaded 'Christmas' word into casual conversations. And while you could sit around and lament that it's October (already!), why not put a little sparkle in your life? If you follow us on Twitter, you'll see that we've been raving about some of the fantastic sparkly bracelets we've got in stock for the Autumn/Winter 2013 season. Here's five of our favourites. What's yours?

    Ted Baker Glitz Super Sparkle Cluster Bracelet in Grape

    Glittery and glamorous, this Ted Baker Glitz Super Sparkle Cluster Bracelet in Grape?(?49.00) looks like something which would be worn by Joan from Mad Men. Its clusters of rich purple coloured glass beads have a special coating which allows them to glitter with deep bronze tones. And while it's still?slightly?too early to be thinking about Christmas, we think that this would make a great accessory for any festive party!

    Ti Sento Sterling Silver Reversible Cubic Zirconia Crystal Bracelet

    If you're looking for something a little bit more understated, then this Ti Sento Sterling Silver Reversible Cubic Zirconia Crystal Bracelet (?70.00)?would perfectly fit the bill.?One side of the crystal has a bezel set cubic zirconia crystal whilst the other side has been set with smaller individual cubic zirconia crystals, allowing it to add a simple touch of sparkle to even the most mundane of outfits.?Wear it with the matching earrings, pendant and ring to complete the look.

    Dyrberg/Kern Ice Lumina Swarovski Crystal Bracelet in Shiny Silver

    We love the bigness and boldness of Dyrberg/Kern's new Autumn/Winter collection, and this Ice Lumina Swarovski Crystal Bracelet in Shiny Silver (?69.00) is no exception. Comprising a great gobstopper of?Swarovski ELEMENTS crystals in mixed shapes and sizes on a?hand knotted macrame bracelet, it is full of unashamedly brash brilliance.

    Karen Millen Druzy Crystal Bangle

    We love the unique shape of this?Karen Millen Druzy Crystal Bangle (?65.00),?as well as the pattern of the crystals it's dotted with. While it may not be as ostentatious as some of the other bracelets we've featured here, it's simplicity may be what makes it one of our favourites. It's the perfect thing to team with a little black dress for some understated glamour.

    Dogeared Sterling Silver Medium Sparkle Karma Bracelet on Tobacco Linen

    While this?Dogeared Sterling Silver Medium Sparkle Karma Bracelet on Tobacco Linen (?44.95)?may not be as sparkly as the other bracelets here, we quite like its dull silvery shimmer. It also has a lovely?textured, sparkly karma circle charm - a gloriously pretty reminder to stay positive, peaceful and loving. (Which isn't the easiest thing to do sometimes!)

  • Buying earrings? We now accept returns on pierced jewellery.

    Good news if you're buying earrings - we can now accept returns on all pierced jewellery.

    It was a bit awkward before, as due to hygiene reasons we weren't able to accept returns on earrings. So to get around this we came up with a simple solution: all earrings are now sent out in clear sealed bags. If you don't break the seal on the bag then it's fine to send them back if they're not suitable for you. As they're in a clear bag you can still hold them up against your ear to see if you like them.

    So now you can treat yourself to some beautiful earrings without worrying about returning them if they're not quite right for you. Here are some of our favourite earrings at the moment to inspire you:

  • Accessories - What's your Style Profile?

    Guest PostWhatever your personal style, or what you have to wear on a day-to-day basis, one of the best ways to express who you are is through your accessories. There are so many diverse looks to experiment with within the realm of accessories that the possibilities can be endless no matter what you wear. Below are just a few of the different styles that can be spotted today.

    Kooky

    Kooky girls are always on the lookout for the weird and wonderful in accessories: unexpected objects as pendants, piles of mismatching bracelets, charms and strange shapes and materials. Sometimes it's about pieces that have other meanings, jewellery that can represent part of their personality or an individual interest. And sometimes it's just about finding something gorgeous to wear that bucks a trend or differs from the norm.

    Disney

    Kooky girls will love : Disney Couture, Lenora Dame, Tatty Devine

    Classic

    Classic girls have a chic, neat sense of style that works anytime and anywhere. Decoration is kept to a minimum - no stacked chains or jangling bracelets need apply - but with a level of taste that is timeless and undeniable. The classic ideal is to invest in beautiful accessories that will last a lifetime; special pieces in precious metals that can be passed down the generations and will never go out of style.

    Alex Monroe 22kt Gold Plated Baby Twig Horseshoe Necklace, ?84.95

    Vintage girls have one eye on the past and the other on the fashion scene. Taking inspiration from decades gone before, they combine thrift finds and family heirlooms with looks which are constantly being recreated for the current season. From 1940s florals to the retro glam of the 50s and 60s, vintage lovers will always have a look to suit their favourite era at the same time as keeping up to date with modern trends.

    Kirstin

    Statement

    Statement girls love to let their jewellery to speak for itself and will always use their accessories as the main focus of an outfit. Big shapes, tribal influences and high colour are the order of the day and the look carries seamlessly through from day to night. Statement girls know that bold accessories will always be the quickest and most effective way to update any outfit.

    Fiona Paxton Surat Jewelled Necklace in Silver, ?175
