Gotta have it
There are occassions when you want to invest in jewellery that will stand the test of time and the diamond range from Winsor Bishop hits the mark.
Marilyn nailed it when she announced diamonds are a girls best friend and although we all dip into Accessorize to buy a pair of earings for tonight’s party there are some times in your life when an investment piece of jewellery is an emotional and well earned gift. Whether it is a milestone birthday (I’m thinking 18th or 21st) or perhaps examination results that have blown you away (fingres crossed for all those waiting for results this week) or even a significant wedding anniversary, buying a piece of jewellery that is contemporary but stylish and ageless is a gift for life.
Winsor Bishop in Cambridge design and create contemporary jewellery with all budgets in mind. The Love & Luck 18ct rose gold and diamond heart shape bracelet (0.08ct) is delicate and feminine and costs £250.
Whether you’re after luck, love or flower power there’s someting for everyone and most bracelets come in white, yellow and rose gold – all with the obligatory diamonds.
They look great stacked up on the arm.
If you’re able to splash the cash a little more then the heavier set of the London hinged bangle in silver with 0.24ct diamonds has a modern feel to it. The silver costs £850, but if you opt for the rose gold it will set you back a whopping £3,500 (ouch) – silver sounds pretty good to me. If you come close I’ll whisper how much the diamond gold bracelet (0.59ct), £1,850 but I luuurve it.
If you want to push the boat out or gradually build up a collection the London Collar, sits beautifully in the neck and the hinged back makes it easy to slip on and off. It’s made from silver with 0.24ct diamonds and costs £1,200. Both these items are available in gold, although the prices will vary.
I feel for all those parents and teenagers nervously preparing themselves for exam results this week. Fingers crossed to you all and if you fare better than expected or just do a darn good job then you never know…
