  • Spring into Action!

    It's still cold outside, but spring is coming, so it's time to add a splash of colour and spring to your wardrobe.?It is FAR too chilly to think about summer dresses, so a great way to freshen up your winter knits is by adding a splash of colour with your jewellery.

    A coloured winter jumper can be magically transformed into a spring knit with the help of these beautiful?Les Nereides Champetre Butterfly, Ladybird and Daisy Hoop Earrings. They are delicate, colourful and bound to brighten up your wardrobe and your day:

    ln_earchampetre1074 These Joli Mois de Mai Set of 3 Butterfly and Flower Stacking Rings, also by Les Nereides,? are perfect for adding a splash of colour to hands that have been hidden by gloves all winter! All you need is a splash of pink nail polish and you're ready to go!

    ln_ringjolitrio2 This Les Nereides Messagere Swallow and Flowers Necklace is so pretty with its tiny birds and flowers. It layers up beautifully in colder weather with a lace dress and warm cardigan, but also looks adorable in summer with a floral print dress!

  • Have a Spring Fling with Les Nereides

    Hooray, it's (finally) Spring! A time of sunshine, sandals, ice cream and lovely floaty dresses. It seems as though many of our designers feel the same way, as we've noticed a proliferation of bright colours, big flowers and really playful themes in a lot of their Spring/Summer 2013 collections. And nowhere have we noticed this more than in Les Nereides's new collection. Taking inspiration from a number of sources, we think that their new pieces are some of the nicest we have in our store. ?Here's five of our highlights:

     

    Les Nereides Pas de Deux Asymmetrical Ballerina Earrings

    OK, so their legs may be doing things that ours can only dream of, but we love the femininity and grace of these?Pas de Deux Asymmetrical Ballerina Earrings (?80.00).?Finished with crystals, pearls and a sprinkle of glitter, these would make a lovely gift ?for the budding ballerina in your life.

    Les Nereides Paris Carte Postale Lovers in Paris Necklace

    Like the song, we love Paris in the Springtime - it's full of love, happiness and excellent croissants. This pretty and whimsical?Paris Carte Postale Lovers in Paris Necklace (?110.00) perfectly captures the spirit of the most romantic city in the world, with its?adorable scene of the Eiffel tower with a couple and a merry go round (the woman is holding a bunch of heart shaped balloons!)

    Les Nereides Champetre Butterfly and Crystal Drop Earrings

    Butterflies are cropping up in a lot of our designer's collections this Spring/Summer season, but we think that these?Champetre Butterfly and Crystal Drop Earrings (?50.00)?are some of the prettiest we have in our shop. Inspired by the romanticism and poetry of David Hamilton's photography, these dainty, handcrafted earrings have small butterflies with crystal set wings and a pear shaped crystal drop in bright pink.

    Les Nereides Champetre Garden Flowers and Insects Necklace

    If you follow us on Twitter (@accessories_uk), you'll know that we're head-over-heels in love with this exquisite??Champetre Garden Flowers and Insects Necklace (?220.00).?Bold, bright and utterly beautiful, this exquisite statement necklace is a garden of flowers, crystals and insects that have all been intricately handcrafted in Paris. This is a piece which is sure to turn heads, and inspire lots of admiring glances every time you wear it!

    Les Nereides Champetre Garden Flowers and Insects Cuff (Size Large)

    And if those weren't enough butterflies and bees for you, then this stunning Champetre Garden Flowers and Insects Cuff (?180.00) should do the trick. Nice and chunky, with lots of pops of primary colours, this would add a nice ?splash of brightness to a spring outfit.

  • Five of our favourite SS13 season jewellery arrivals

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, we're not talking about Christmas, or football transfer deadline day, but that first glorious pay day of the year.

And what treat could be better than one of our gorgeous Spring/Summer season jewellery arrivals? ?From blingy bracelets to elegant earrings, you can stay on trend with pieces from top designers such as Dogeared, Tatty Devine, Fiona Paxton and more. ?Here's five of our favourites.

     

    Dyrberg Kern Almaz Crystal Tennis Bracelet with Skull in Shiny Gold

    We love this Dyrberg Kern Almaz Crystal Tennis Bracelet with Skull in Shiny Gold (?89.95). It combines simplicity with a hard - slighty sinister edge, symbolised by the small skull charm near the clasp. Unique and chic, we'd team with a wiggle dress and some seriously killer heels.

    House of Harlow Silver Triangle Collar Necklace

    We've yet to find a House of Harlow piece that we don't love, and this Silver Triangle Collar necklace (?49.95) is no different. Combining linked triangles with textured patterning, it goes perfectly with the tailored look that's so on trend at the moment. Wear this with a smart buttoned up shirt, a pair of skinny jeans and some brogues to make a real statement.

    Kirstin Ash Colourful Floral Bird Ring

    You can't beat a good piece of bird jewellery, and this vibrant Kirstin Ash Colourful Floral Bird Ring (?59.00) will add a pop of colour to the dullest of outfits. Taken from Kirstin Ash's 'Something Like Paradise' collection, it's big, bright and very beautiful.

    Fiona Paxton Rose Necklace in Oxidised Silver

    If you're looking for a necklace with some serious WOW factor, then this Fiona Paxton Rose Necklace in Oxidised Silver (?175.00) is definitely the piece for you. Rose is a tribal inspired piece which combines?three circular cabochons with lengths of draped herringbone chain. Whatever you choose to wear this with, it's sure to make an impact.

    Les Nereides Bouton de Rose Little Red Rose Hoop Earrings

    If you're looking for something slightly more understated, how about these Les Nereides Bouton de Rose Little Red Rose Hoop Earrings (?50.00)? Delicate and dainty, these are finished with a tiny, hand enamelled red rose and jet black Swarovski crystal in a square shaped setting. Not only do they remind us of the first bloom of Spring, they may be one of the prettiest pairs of earrings we've seen in a while.

    Tatty Devine's Christmas Spirit necklace (?85.00) might possibly be the most festive piece of jewellery we've ever seen.

Chock-full of Christmas cheer, we utterly love this.

    Daisy Riviera Pendant - 925 Sterling Silver

    There's something quite retro about this 925 sterling silver Daisy Riviera Pendant (?88.00).

    Bracelets

    Alex Monroe Sterling Silver Extra Fine 'Love' Bracelet

    Every piece in Alex Monroe's new collection is absolutely delightful, but this Sterling Silver Extra Fine 'Love' Bracelet (?89.95) is particularly pretty.? The tiny heart near the clasp is a particularly nice touch, It's dainty, divine, and sure to suit wrists of all shapes and sizes.

    Rings

    Les Nereides Bouton de Rose Crystal Flower and Rosebud Adjustable Swirl Ring

    Perhaps it's the giant crystal flower, or the fact that we just really love sparkly things, but we're incredibly fond of this Les Nereides Bouton de Rose Crystal Flower and Rosebud Adjustable Swirl Ring (?90.00). It's delightfully feminine, and manages to be satisfyingly spangly without being too blingy.

    Alex Monroe is a designer who specialises in celebrating everything which makes the British isles unique. This?Sterling Silver Little Teapot with Brown Sapphire Tea Drop (?109.95)?is a piece of utter loveliness - ?we particularly like the little brown sapphire tea drop attached to the spout.

  • Video: Creating the Les Nereides AW11 Collection

    Here's a video showing how French designers Les N?r?ides created the AW11 'Dans La Foret' (translation: In the Forest) collection. This collection features scenes from our European forests with rabbits, hedgehogs and owls. Les N?r?ides also created a special necklace, inspired by the famous tale by Jean de La Fontaine called 'The Crow and the Fox'.

    It's fascinating to see how much work goes into creating each piece:

  • Les N?r?ides - A Behind the Scenes Video Interview

    Fans of Les N?r?ides jewellery might enjoy watching this behind the scenes interview with Sophie Couret-Delegue Sales Manager, and Pier-Paolo Amaddeo Art Director. You'll find out what the name 'Les Nereides' means, where the creators get their inspiration for the amazing jewellery they create and interestingly why the family behind the brand all have a tattoo of the number 18...

    The video's in French with English subtitles.

  • Emma Watson wears Les Nereides (again!)

    Here's a video of Emma Watson wearing a necklace from Les Nereides' Voluptueuse et Vaporeuse collection. Emma is a huge fan of Les Nereides jewellery and owns quite a few pieces herself. It's because of Emma's influence that Les Nereides jewellery has featured in a few of the Harry Potter films. We're currently sold out of the necklace but will try to get more stock soon.

  • It's all in the detail...

    Les Nereides is one of the most detailed and elaborate jewellery brands that we sell. The work that goes into creating each piece of jewellery is staggering. I wanted to share this video with you - it's the making of the Voluptueuse et Vaporeuse Limited Edition Couture Necklace. Each necklace takes about 16 hours to make - watching the video gives you an indication of why:

  • Les Nereides - New Season Now Online

    Histoire d'un Cygne combines oversized pearls and Swarovski crystals with hand enamelled swan motifs to create an elegant yet dramatic collection. We just love this ring:

    Les Nereides Histoire d'un Cygne White Swan Crystal Cluster Ring, ?98.95

    Voluptueuse et Vaporeuse is a classic Les Nereides floral collection. Tiny birds mingle with shimmering pearls to create a romantic theme. This set of three rings featuring little enamelled birds is really sweet:

    Les

     

    Even if you're don't speak French you'll be able to guess the theme of the Carnaval ? Venise collection. Mystery prevails, with masks, fans and cloaked clowns adorning necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The earrings below are particularly striking, we like the way that the fans hang at differing angles:

    Les Nereides Carnaval a Venise Fan Drop Earrings, ?109.95

    Last but not least is Demoiselles du Bonheur, a collection themed around gardens. This quirky collection includes little ladybirds perched upon fruit and vegetable charms. This charm bracelet is crammed with detail:

  • London Fashion Week Round Up - AW11 Jewellery

    Here's our report from London Fashion Week on the new? jewellery collections heading our way this autumn.

    Alex Monroe

    The AW11 Alex Monroe jewellery collection embodies 1950's glamour. Called 'Chrysanthemum', it combines shimmering pearls with delicate hand crafted flowers. Our favourites are the flower stud earrings below, that also come in a pretty pearl centred version.

Rich colours of black cherry quartzite, iris quartzite, lily quartzite, peacock quartzite and dumorterite appear on new jewellery styles that are faceted for seasonal glamour. The classic Lola Rose heart appears on bracelets, necklaces and stretch rings to tactile tumble bracelets designed for layering.

    Jacey Withers

    'Adornithology' is the name of the new Jacey Withers AW11 collection. It's an enchanting collection of unique handcrafted pieces heavily inspired by the beautiful white barn owl, one of England's most captivating birds. Fascinated by this creature, Jacey has created a delightful story surrounding the life of this bird, the mythology and superstition surrounding it as well as its wildlife companions, some even being its prey. Within the collection we discover adorable, inquisitive mice climbing on necklaces and bracelets. Striking owls sit on chains showing the amazing pattern of their wings.

    We love the bracelet!

    Finders keepers...come foraging with Tatty Devine. The forest is rich with acorns, blackberries and seeds, all transformed into jewellery in new matt frosted perspex. Crown yourself with ivy wreaths in translucent green and charcoal black. Spot a fox slipping through the undergrowth, or an owl disappearing through the trees. Go exploring dressed in colourful perspex patchwork in oranges and creams or dazzling peacock shades of mirror.

    'A collection inspired by the ancients' is the tag line for Fiona Paxton's AW11 season.? Influences are the bronze age, the Kings and Queens of the Celts, Mycenaean culture, hammered metals, matt stones, arrowheads, wrapped wire, draping chains and beaten curved metal discs.? Styles are bold, strong shapes contrasted with areas of refined detailing created by Fiona Paxton in her signature style, mixing metals with leather and beading.

  • Emma Watson wears Les Nereides Jewellery in Harry Potter

    I was pleased to spot Emma Watson wearing a Les Nereides necklace in the new Harry Potter movie. The necklace comes from the now retired 'Violeta' collection. Sadly we can't stock the necklace as the Harry Potter franchise has bought the rights to the necklace, but I thought I'd share it all the same!

  • New Season of Les Nereides Jewellery

    Les Nereides was one of the first brands that we stocked when AccessoriesOnline.co.uk was launched back in 2004 (six years ago, how time flies!).

    For AW10 we are stocking two stunning?new collections, 'Au Clair de la Lune' and 'Colliers de Roses'.

    Au Clair de la Lune is a whimsical new collection with pretty enamelled clowns mixed with delicate flowers and Swarovski crystal berries. Our favourite piece is the showpiece necklace, below, that has trails of forget-me-nots, enamelled flowers and lengths of pearl.

  • Fabulous Statement Rings

    Guest PostSo you’ve spent ages getting ready, you’ve got your outfit on, you look?okay, but there’s something not quite right. Something is missing. Then you reach for that statement ring. Your outfit changes. You no longer look ?alright? - you look fantastic and set apart from the crowd. BAM your outfit is suddenly perfect.

    Ahhh. The power of fantastic jewellery.

    Hello lovers of all things glitzy, glamorous and gorgeous, I’m Poppy from Sunderland and today I want to talk to you lovely peeps about my favourite accessory, (If you hadn’t guessed from that OTT introduction above!) - the ring.

    But how rude of me just to waffle on about rings I’m fancying and you don’t know anything about me! As I said above, my name’s Poppy and I live over at Bears and Bunting, my little corner of the web. I study Fine Art at Sunderland Uni and spend an unholy amount of my time baking and gaming, on account of me being a giant nerd.

    Anyway, that’s enough about me, let’s talk about the main attraction.

    Statement rings are massive news right now, and I literally can’t get enough of them. Though if I’m honest, I love most rings. Big rings, bold rings, dainty rings, sparkly rings, double fingered, even triple fingered rings! I’m all over that scene.

    So for your viewing pleasure, I’ve picked out some of the rings I’ve been coveting from the selection here at Accessories Online. Enjoy!

    Les Nereides Circus Tent Ring

    Les

    Can’t you just imagine there’s a tiny little acrobatics show going on in there? And I love the tassle on top of the tent. It gives it a really fun, playful twist that I love.

    Ted Baker Two Tone Ruffle Bow Ring

    Ted

    I’ve always said that I either wear gold or silver jewellery and never the two shall meet on the same occasion. However, this is one ring that I’m happy to break that rule for. The combination of both colours just works so well and somehow makes the bow look both dainty and strikingly bold.

    N2 Rue du Macaron Ring

    N2

    And finally, I couldn’t not talk about this ring. Look how realistic it looks! I could just pick it up and eat it. I have such a sweet tooth it’s ridiculous, so it’s no surprise that I’d like this ring. Seriously, if I didn’t have to pay Uni tuition fees and keep a landlord in business, all my money would go on sweeties and baked treats, believe me.

    So what do you guys think of my picks? What are you lusting after? Leave a comment below or if you decide to mosey on over to my little home on the web, drop me a line and let me know what you crave from Accessories Online. I love to know other peoples opinions and I always love hearing from new readers!

    I hope you liked the post and thanks for reading, peeps!

  • N2 Jewellery - Magical Charm from Paris

    Guest Post

    Guest post by Jade from www.thestylerawr.com

    The new N2 jewellery collection is coming through at www.accessoriesonline.co.uk and, dare I say it, for me it has more magical charm than the now super popular Disney Couture - gasp!!

    The naughty younger sibling of Les Nereides specialises in statement pieces which are huge this season in themselves?(literally!), and N2 is as playful as costume jewellery gets without getting anywhere close to tacky. Each season brings with it a fresh look at our favourite childhood fairytales and dreams but with a twist of modernity,?think what it means to be a girl in general.?N2 has?been one of my favourite brands for a while now, so I?am really excited to see?a new season?coming through?again?at one of my favourite local stockists, Accessories Online!

    N2 have?had us dangling Alice from our ears, had the Big Bad Wolf?chasing?a certain Miss Riding Hood around our wrists,?and draping the Arabian Nights across our necks. This season we are being tempted into the gingerbread house and hopefully whisked off to the chic city of Paris - N2 really knows how to help a girl escape! Statement jewellery can turn heads even when you're wearing the plainest outfit. I'm a big believer in investing in?timeless, edgy?jewellery and accessories, than actual clothes that can date and wear with age.

    My fave new piece on the AO webby so far is probably the Un Petit Coin Perdu Gingerbread House Necklace, and at just ?36.95 for so much detail,?it looks a lot more expensive than it is.

    N2 Un Petit Coin Perdu Gingerbread House Necklace, ?36.95

    N2

    Oh and forget Thomas Sabo and Pandora, in my opinion, N2 are the real charm masters. As a kid I remember playing with my auntie's charm bracelet, it was old gold?and heavy but full of cool things to look at. Not tiny beads or delicate pieces but really meaningful, individual and fun charms that you could play with and look at for hours.?N2 charm bracelets are so inviting, whimsical and just amazing to look at and touch. An amazing example is the Un Petit Coin Perdu Hansel and Gretel Charm Bracelet, again at ?36.95, you will find yourself staring at this cutie for a long time after you first try it on, there's so much to see, my fave feature being the tiny little diamante studded into the blue candy!

    N2 Un Petit Coin Perdu Hansel and Gretel Charm Bracelet, ?36.95

    N2

    Luckily for us, Accessories Online have even more new pieces to come, the upcoming Paris pieces will be perfect for summer. Featuring beautiful French street scenes set in gold, the range will appeal to more than just a hardcore?N2 fan like me. I defy you not to gasp in delight at earrings housing?a tiny couple in a romantic clinch under the Eiffel Tower, or smile at?the intricate cafe scene hung from a?necklace.?They're just so adorable, imagine wearing with a nautical striped top, denim shorts and flats, keep the outfit simple but let?your jewellery shine!

    I love quirky jewellery that makes you look at it and nothing ticks all the boxes for me like N2, it's bright and showy but still chic,?and?here at The Style Rawr, we?<3 it, and we love Accessories Online for stocking it!
