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.

2014

Pandora Australia has added a limited edition bracelet and charm set to its Pink Ribbon jewellery range, marking its ninth consecutive year supporting breast cancer research. The company has raised more than $2 million dollars since 2005, with 30% of sales of Breast cancer items will be donated to The Breast Cancer Foundation.

The newest addition to the brand’s fundraising efforts is a bracelet made from pink, braided leather and a sterling silver charm that spells out the word “hope” in cubic zirconia.

The charm has been designed to represent an ongoing commitment to raising awareness and research funds for the prevention and cure of breast cancer. Pink is also the NBCF campaign’s signature colour. The release of this charm today on the 1st of October co-insides with the start of Breast Cancer awareness month.

The breast cancer awareness bracelet will be available at Gillett’s for a short time only, however we do still carry other items from past releases so just ask!

Pandora release August/September 2014

5
Sep
2014

Here to welcome you into the new fresh season is a gorgeous new Pandora charm and jewellery release to enchant and enhance your springtime fun.
This new collection features spiraling delicate leaves, whimsical fairytale creatures encrusted in jewels and mystical childhood memories to add to your collection. A hero here at Gilletts has most definitely been the new Pandora signature studs, necklace and ring collection; featuring a classic style round pendant embellished with the traditional Pandora Logo surrounding a cluster of sparkling cubic zirconias. The simple yet elegant design works well with any outfit, and each piece can be interchanged with any of your other Pandora jewellery.

Another hero piece currently is the “King of the Jungle” charm, featuring a detailed lions head wearing a very cute crown. This charm makes a great personal gift, bringing back memories of perhaps Aslan from The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe, or Simba from The Lion King. This charm fits snugly on the traditional bracelets, but also looks quite good on the leather bracelets with one or two colored muranos to accompany it.

New Pandora August 2014

1
Aug
2014

Hello and welcome to your first Pandora update for August 2014!

For this month’s collection, Pandora have released a new range of symbolic charms and bracelets for you to wear in order to represent your beliefs and and tell your story.

A new bracelet style has been released, featuring a delicate chain bracelet with a featured fixed charm, closing with the Pandora silver clasp. These bracelets feature the symbols of a love heart, 4 leafed clover, horse shoe, cross, infinite loop and a hamsa hand. These symbols each carry with them their own special meaning which can add substance and personalization to your jewellery collection. These bracelets look particularly good paired with your original Pandora bracelet, as their slight oxidization stands out without being too flashy. They are also striking upon their own, and come in 16cm, 18cm and 20cm. As they look better on your wrist when they are a bit tighter, and are unable to hold other beads, it is best to go with a size that will fit snugly upon your wrist. These also could be worn as an anklet (just make sure you don’t forget to take it off when having a shower!).

The hamsa hand is an interesting symbolic selection for Pandora and adds an air of multiculturalism to their range which is fantastic. The hamsa hand is used to represent protection against evil, and is evident in many religions and cultures around the world. It is traditionally worn as jewellery to protect the wearer and give them strength. It is a popular symbol particularly in Middle Eastern and African cultures.

New charms for August include dangling cubic-zirconia numbers from 1-9. These have a slight oxidization and will dangle quite low off of your bracelet. They work really well as a pendant on a bracelet or single charms on a leather bracelet, and could be used to represent age (such as 18/21) to replace the older age indicator charms. The symbolic charms released do not match exactly those that have been made into bracelets; and feature a star, all seeing eye, angel wing, key, dove and infinity loop (hangs like an ‘8′).

The inclusion of the infinity loop on both Pandora’s bracelet and charm release shows just how popular and powerful this symbol is becoming. Used to represent infinite love or strength (or your love of maths equations!) the infinity loop is a great gift to give to a loved one or family member to show your commitment to them and your love. It is also a powerful symbol to give yourself personally to remind yourself of your own inner strength and infinite opportunities for happiness in your life.

Whatever your choice for love, luck or protection, Pandora has an option for you this August.
