The 'Athena' necklace by award winning Scottish jeweller Joanne MacFadyen is a beautiful statement piece made of sterling silver, aventurine beads and green enamel. Worn on bare skin it exudes a delicate sensuality and allure that will not go unnoticed. The necklace is part of the artist's 'Eden' collection, a line of intricately designed jewelry with a rustic charm. Do take a minute to look through the entire collection, it is well worth it.
These blue abalone teardrop earrings by Bark Opal are handcrafted with love in Britain and are one of a kind due to the unique pattern of each natural gemstone. They make a perfect gift for a girly girl with minimalist style, and not only because of its clean design and stunning green-blue colours, but also because wearing abalone shell jewelry is said to be very soothing to the emotions. A great investment, if you ask me.
A minimalist design, an elegant sparkle and the romantic peach-pink colour of rose gold - the perfect ingredients for a Valentine's Day gift meant for a very special lady. The great thing about this bangle from the Diamond Boutique (featuring a total of 36 diamonds!) is that it is a luxury accessory that is understated enough to be worn during the day and with most outfits. A great way to remind your partner of your love every single day!
The new collection of rings by Caterina Jewelry is called "Hearts of Forever" and I can't think of a better name. It sounds like a promise of love and devotion, an expression of someone's deepest feelings. The exquisite craftsmanship of these rings lends them timeless charm and sophisticated simplicity. The rings are available in gold, rose and silver, with a huge selection of cubic zirconia colors. You can also stack them together for a statement-making look! While the collection will not be launched until after Valentine's Day (expect it to arrive around March), it's still a wonderful gift idea to keep in mind for future occasions.
With their deep red colour and subtle shine rubies are a perfect symbol of love and passion. This stunning heart shaped pendant is made of 14ct white gold and is set with diamonds and a ruby center stone. It will be sure to melt any woman's heart... Well, I know it would definitely melt mine. You can find it at Allurez, a treasure cove of diamond and precious stone jewellery. They also offer a customization service for their designs!
