• 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


    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


    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


    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.

    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!

    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!

  • Out of Luck? Try some Lucky Jewellery.

    Happy St Patrick's Day! I must admit that this has crept up on me somewhat - where is the year going to?

    All this talk of Guinness, shamrocks and all things Irish got me thinking about some of the lucky jewellery we have on the site. And there's quite a lot of it. In fact, we have lucky charms, lucky amulets and good luck charms aplenty. So if you're feeling a little down on your luck, we could have something to help.

    One of the symbols most associated with good luck is the four leaf clover. A rare relative of the more common three leafed clover, it's said to bring luck to the finder. It's estimated that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover. Each leaf is said to symbolise something - luck, hope, faith and love. And they look pretty cute too. Our favourite piece of four leaf clover jewellery is this four leaf clover necklace by Alex Monroe. Each leaf has gentle detailing giving the necklace a life of its own.

    Another talisman said to bring good luck is the horseshoe. Many believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down, is bad luck as all the good luck will fall out. Some cultures say you have to wear a horseshoe "open end up", to catch all the riches and luck from heaven. Others say you should wear it with the open end down so the riches can pour out on you. Our silver lucky horseshoe necklace by Dogeared hangs tipped to the side. The reason being is they said they didn't want to spill any luck...

    Did you know that 13 can be a lucky number? In Sikhism, the number 13 is considered a special number since 13 is 'tera' in Punjabi, which also means "yours" (as in, "I am yours, O Lord"). Thirteen is also considered a lucky number in Italy.

    Chili peppers are also a lesser know lucky symbol - In India, chili is used with lime to ward off evil spirits and is seen in vehicles and in homes for that purpose. It is used to check the evil eye and remove its effects in Hinduism.

    This Lucky Charm bracelet by French brand N2 has plenty of lucky charms on it. They've even included a flying pig:
