I really do love spring, it that time of year where we can brush away the winter blues, the buds start to push through and start to blossom, surrounding us with blue bells, daffodils and tulips such beautiful fresh colours. Longer days and sunshine puts that extra bounce in our steps, a wider smile on our faces and the air is full of positivity.
The other great thing about this time of year is winter clothes can finally be locked up and replaced by beautiful prints and fresh spring colours. From a jewellery design prospective this allows us to be far more creative with the coloured gems that we can use in our designs.
As I have mentioned in previous blogs I have a real passion for beautiful vibrant coloured gems and the spring season really allows us to offer you an array of choice to really finish off the outfit, I thought it would be quiet cool to give you some insights to the possibilities that are available and take a look as lesser know stones.
Golden beryl is also known as Heliodor, which is named after the Greek words for sun "Helios" and gift "Doron". The sunny yellowcolour of this beryl lives up to its name. Although it isn't well known, Golden beryl has an illustrious pedigree.
Like people, gems come in closely related
According to the Times, sales of luxury and premium goods continue to shine even during the economic down turn.
This was one of a number of findings picked up during a survey carried out by Bain.
In my opinion, one of the reasons for this is very clear and stares you in the face. When talking money and the climate today people are more cautious when they spend, leaving the consumer looking at that one special purchase that they will enjoy, create a feel good factor and above all be in the price range that suits.
This tends to go against the grain where multiple smaller items were once the trend which ultimately could cost them more than that one bespoke unique piece.
Another important factor is that clients want to feel important, cared for and offered an experience when purchasing which some of the luxury and premium brand retailers offer.
So back to the report, Bain continues to report that the very clients we are talking about and seek these services are in fact not those that would be ordinarily be described as rich.
As a personal jeweller I can relate to this report because many of my clients receive all of the above and more without paying the big brand prices.
Everything is an experience, it’s just which one do you choose, get in touch and sample the above and more. Get the feel good factor from the pocket to the jewellery.
