The great thing about the bead collection from Pandora this year is that they have released only a small collection, but have executed the design and feel of the charms really well. The pink heart glass murano charm looks sweet against any charm from the valentines collection and the new heart filigree with gold ‘love’ is a lovely addition to the openwork beads that Pandora offer.
Welcome to the New Year from all of us here at Gillett’s and we hope you had a lovely Christmas!
As the new year rolls in so does exciting news on the Jewellery front. We experienced great success with Pandora’s Christmas bracelet giveaway and hope all of our loyal Pandora customers were able to enjoy this lovely promotion. Of course, as it is, New Years is now over and we look to the next celebration – Valentines Day!
These days all seem to roll around so quickly but it is important to show that special someone in your life that you love and appreciate them even when the holidays and merry making season is over. Pandora is of course releasing a new Valentines range soon but if you are wanting to get in quickly before the rush starts or are looking for something a bit different from Pandora we offer a range of different brands and styles in store and online.
A personal favourite is Nomination’s Sorrento, Rosa and Incanto jewellery range. Differing from their strong, structural charm bracelets, these pieces are quite dainty and feature pretty Rose Gold plates and feature iconic motifs of fiery suns and four petal flowers with pretty romantic designs of hearts with roses. These pieces are quite affordable and average at about $150 for a beautiful bracelets, earrings and necklaces. This necklace featured sits low on your neckline and features Rose Gold which is quite in at the moment. The drop pendants of the moons creates a lovely dainty eye catcher.
Another great gift idea this Valentine’s season is a fashion watch that everyone is coveting at the moment. Names like Marc Jacob and Michael Kors epitomize the trends at the moment, featuring large crowns, white or tan bands and of course, Rose Gold. Another great look that is popular is a chunky style of watch made of a solid colour (such as Yellow or White Gold). Watches are great gift ideas as they can be so personal and worn every day. Engraving the back of the watch is always a lovely way to show your loved one how much you feel and for them to keep that message with them every day. At Gillett’s we offer engraving for $3 a letter. The watches featured are some of our most popular designs and can be purchased online, over the phone or in store.
