A little bit of sparkle

Welcome to November.  What I particularly love this month is Guy Fawkes Night with the crackling bonfires and all the fireworks that light up the night sky.   On many occasions when driving home I have pulled over and stopped to enjoy a display viewed from the warmth of my car.  With all these explosions of colour showering  sparkles of light across the dark evening sky what jeweller could fail to take inspiration from such a display and strive to incorporate it in some way in their designs.

So with this in mind this platinum diamond multi cluster ring is the epitome of sparkle. The stones are set in such a way that it has the appearance of a big single stone diamond with stone set shoulders. A little added detail is a small heart beneath the setting.

A dark November night would not be the same without moon and stars and these are a wonderful theme to translate into jewellery. So it is no surprise that there is plenty in both  silver and gold to choose from but I have picked out some little gold moon and star pendants which are great for layering and mixing and matching.

There are many ways to create a glittery effect and I recently spotted this yellow gold puffed heart pendant that has a hammered finish which simply glitters

Continuing on the heart theme, I love the way the designer here has introduced more sparkle by running graduated diamonds across the centre.

But sadly we can’t guarantee a dry Guy Fawkes Night but that doesn’t mean that designs inspired by raindrops or bubbles can’t sparkle as well.   I found this neat 9ct and diamond ‘bubble’ ring set with smaller stones than a larger 18ct version which we recently advertised as design inspiration!

But why not embrace the rain with this new white gold rain drops pendant and elegant matching earrings or even the larger yellow gold raindrop pendant set with diamond again with matching earrings.

For a vintage feel, marcasite jewellery has certain softness about it.   A pair of cute elephants or a sparkly dragonfly brooch work well pinned on a jacket or coat as they catch the dancing light of the bonfire.

Or take a look at this fringed white gold diamond droplet necklace, this little diamond piece is quite eye catching on any occasion.

There is nothing wrong with a bit of glamour wherever you are and this 9ct white gold diamond bracelet is guaranteed to add a touch of elegance.

Alternatively if you are out around the bonfire you could wear these silver and CZ bracelets.  One picks up the theme of the classic tennis bracelet, the other has an almost ‘Deco’ feel with its set geometric pattern.
