Luxury Designer Jewellery

Today, I went on a little virtual shopping trip around my newly discovered find, Astley Clarke. Marketed as ‘a new era for luxury jewellery shoppers, the New Golden Age of Magnificence’. The pieces here are very much collectable items, classic pieces that you will hold on to for years and that will not go out of style – no throwaway fashion at Astley Clarke.

Having said that, despite being a luxury brand, there are items for all budgets, so a little something for under a hundred pounds as well as those higher end items that reach into the thousands.

There are three ranges to browse, Contemporary Jewellery, Designer Jewellery and Fine Jewellery – so there is pretty much something for everyone. And, as well as the ease of browsing on-line, there is also a showroom to visit if you happen to live in the UK. But if on-line is your choice, there is fast worldwide delivery as well as same day London delivery and next day UK delivery. Worth pointing out to those partners that love to Christmas shop at the very last minute.

For the jewellery lover, this is a store with a great deal of expertise. If you need help with the choices available, there is a Personal Shopper and gemmologist available on hand. I know once I have decided upon a purchase I like to do my own research and find out a little about what I am buying.

I have admired the work of Pippa Small from afar for several years, so was pleased to find her pieces as there is no stockist that I am aware of in the North East of England. There are some very stylish and unusual silver pieces, as this is mostly what I wear. The Bow collection, how can I resist? And some amazing rings. I'm going to be spoilt for choice this Christmas.
