SEMI-PRECIOUS SPRING JEWELLERY
It may still be a little chilly outside but we’re looking ahead to Spring with our latest new arrivals
This month sees the arrival of a beautiful new collection of silver jewellery and fashion jewellery, with designs for every style and budget. This week we launched a selection of gorgeous beaded bracelets that are perfect for stacking. Each bracelet is made from semi-precious beads and features metallic design elements, plated in real silver.
These stretch bracelet designs are so comfortable to wear and wonderful when mixed and matched. Bracelets are available in Amethyst, Amazonite, Labradorite, Jasper, Blue Sodalite and Rose Quartz. Let’s take a look at some of these beautiful gems in more detail…
These beautiful mineral gemstones come in a variety of green-aqua shades, with a mottled appearance. Although Amazonite is not currently found in the Amazon region, it is thought that the name reflects the colouring of the Amazon river and the reflective green hues of the surrounding forest.
Amethyst is a popular quartz gemstone with colours that range from pale lilac to rich purple. Amethyst was widely used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians, while the ancient Greeks believed that it would prevent them from becoming intoxicated. While we don’t necessarily recommend the use of Amethyst to stop you getting tipsy, we do love the intense colour and beauty of this beloved gemstone.
The Jasper mineral is found in a variety of colours and shades, all with a distinctly earthy feel. Greens, browns and brick reds are common in Jasper with oxide deposits forming bands, spots and flecks within the opaque stone which can often resemble rocky landscapes or terrain.
This beautiful opaque mineral can range in colour from royal blue to violet and features white veins. The name ‘Sodalite’ comes from the sodium rich rocks that form the intensely coloured stone. This type of blue is not a common colour in rocks and gemstones, which makes sodalite an unusual and striking choice. Each stone varies in colour and tone, making it nearly impossible to create a standard shade of Sodalite. It’s this variation that ensures each bead is unique, so if you’re looking for a bracelet that’s as individual as you are, why not opt for Blue Sodalite.
