A Happy New Year from Gilletts

2
Jan
2015

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.

Opals for October Birthdays

26
Sep
2014

As September draws to a close we here at Gillett’s cast our minds forward to the month of October. Warmer days, excitement for Christmas and spring blooms make us think of lovely days spent picnicking and enjoying our new long weekend! It’s not all about us though, and of course we think of our loved ones birthdays in the next coming weeks. The birthstones for October are Opal and Tourmaline. Opal is a uniquely special gift for an Australian born loved one as 99% of the world’s opals are found right here at home. Opal’s are a beautiful gem, with an array of colours available ranging from white, to blue to black. Opal is made from small silica spheres arranged in a regular pattern. The type of silica in Opals is chemically similar to quartz, but Opal silica contains water within the mineral structure. Precious Opal generally contains about 6-10% water. The vast number of colors in Opals are caused by the regular array of silica spheres diffracting white light, and breaking the light into the colors of the light spectrum. The actual range of color in a particular Opal is determined by the diameter and spacing of its silica spheres. The colors of an Opal can also change depending upon the angle of light incidence, so when an Opal is rotated, its color can change or disappear. This feature makes Opals extremely interesting and unique.

Tourmaline, October’s other birthstone, is just as unique and colourful as the Opal. Most tourmaline’s are found in a myriad of colors: yellow, green, red, blue, pink, brown, black. Some even have bi-colored properties. A valued bi-colored variety of tourmaline, found in Brazil, is called the “watermelon.” The outer edges of the gem are green, transitioning to a transparent white zone that gives way to a pink or light red interior.

Either of these gorgeous stones would make a wonderful gift for you loved one now, or for Christmas (its just around the corner!)
all pieces shown are available at Gilletts.com.ai

August Birthstone – the Peridot

15
Aug
2014

Ausgust’s Birthstone, the Peridot, is a lovely lime green, sparkling gem which looks perfect against Silver, White and even Yellow Gold. The bright, dancing green light that peridot’s emit make them perfect for a feature stone in a pendant, goregous as studs in earrings and beatiful large or small on dress rings.
The idea of birthstones is said to go back to ancient biblical times when the Breastplate of Aaron that was described in the book of Exodus in the Bible was said to hold the 12 different stones of the tribes he represented. These stones were then likened to the 12 signs of the zodiac, and so was born the correspondance between birth and a stone which may bring you happiness, guidnence and strength.

Peridot is a gemstone with a fascinating history, both in nature and culture. It is one of the oldest known gemstones, with ancient records documenting the mining of peridot from as early as 1500 B.C. It is a gem especially connected with ancient Egypt, and some historians believe that the famous emeralds of Cleopatra were actually peridot gems. In nature, Peridot is an unique gemstone, as it (along with the Diamond) is the only gem formed under the earth’s crust. Peridot forms deep beneath the earth and is brought to the surface through volcanoes and tetonic movement.

Peridot was first used a talisman in the ancient world and it has a longstanding mystical reputation. It was once thought to ward off anxiety, making men more articulate and facilitating successful relationships and marriages.

At Gillett’s we have a wide range of Peridot Jewellery at affordable prices, all images listed are available through our online store.
