Why Choose Pre-loved and Vintage Jewellery?

With Pre-Loved jewellery we can explore a lot of uniqueness in our styles. If you want to stand out in everyday fashion – pre-loved jewellery is the ultimate destination! And by being considerate of your purchases you are also helping our planet. Fashion trends always come back around so don’t show your old wardrobe the bin – recycle it! When your jewellery was made in decades gone by, it’s unlikely that you’ll find someone else wearing the same pieces as you. Even only a few decades ago, jewellery was made in much smaller batches than it is today. Therefore it’s harder to find an exact replica of a piece of older jewellery. In this way, buying second-hand jewellery means you can find something unique to express yourself. A piece of second hand jewellery will have a history – it may Continue Reading “Why Choose Pre-loved and Vintage Jewellery?”

Inside A Libra’s Jewellery Box

As the air starts to get chillier and the leaves start to turn orange, we are quickly reminded that summer is officially coming to an end. There is no better reminder of the changing seasons than the sun entering a new astrological sign.  Libra is an air sign represented by the scales, an association that reflects Libra’s fixation on balance and harmony. Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create a calm state of mind in all areas of life. The traditional birthstone for Libra is the Opal but may also include Peridot and Aquamarine gemstones.  Opal is the most colourful gemstone liked for its astrological significance and unmatched beauty. Opal stones exhibit a wonderful ‘play of colour’ effect called fire when light enters the stone. Keeping Opals close to you at all times will help to prevent negativity related Continue Reading “Inside A Libra’s Jewellery Box”

The September Birthstone: Sapphire

Sapphire is the September birthstone (for all our Zodiac’s, this Gemstone is for you!) and it is a gem that’s been cherished for thousands of years. Although the term Sapphire usually refers to the blue variety of corundum, this birthstone comes in a rainbow of other colours. Derived from the the Latin word “saphirus” and the Greek “sapheiros”, this precious gemstone is typically thought of to be blue, but they come in many beautiful colours such as: yellow, purple, orange, and green. In addition to being the September birthstone, Sapphire is also the gem commemorating the 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries. Sapphires have traditionally symbolised sincerity, truth, faithfulness and nobility. For centuries, Sapphire has adorned royalty! Ancient Greece and Rome believed that blue Sapphires protected their owners from harm and envy. Ancient Persians even believed the earth actually rested on Continue Reading “The September Birthstone: Sapphire”
