Yellow Jewellery February

Yellow Jewellery this February.

This year, we have decided to have each month a colour day. So February is yellow jewellery month. We are encouraging you to wear lots of jewellery coloured yellow. Either a pale yellow or just bright in your face yellow. It is, of course, your choice. Usually, February is traditionally Valentine’s Day. This year, because it is quite over commercialized, we have chosen to go with yellow costume jewellery as our theme. First of all why the colour yellow, well it is the hint of spring with daffodils and crocus emerging. Yes and this year in the UK. It has been exceptional weather with plenty of sunshine.

On each category, we consequently have a filter. With a colour option to choose. It is easy to see what is available in each section for example yellow necklaces or yellow earrings. But if you wish to view the whole yellow or mustard jewellery range (Mustard seems to be the in colour this spring time). Then use our search facility at the top of the page. We have free UK delivery with international delivery set at one cost where ever you live in the world. But use our currency conversion which is at the end of each page.

Look at our yellow jewellery samples now.

Get your diamante jewellery – Only 15 days to Christmas

Only 15 days left to Christmas to get your diamante jewellery ready to party!

Get into the party mood by wearing sparkling diamanté jewellery. With diamante jewels in so many colours. It is easy to coordinate with any outfit. Wear a pair of fabulous diamante earrings or just wear a twinkling diamante hair clip that catches the light and sparkles. Just one or two pieces of jewellery add extra sparkle to your look. But take care too much bling can make you look silly or using an old saying “mutton dressed as a lamb”

aurora vintage clip on earrings in redDon’t be a diamante jewellery bling disaster.

Don’t go overboard or you will look like a Christmas tree in disguise. One or two pieces is just enough. Too much diamante jewellery will make you look a bling disaster. Do not put on a diamante necklace with matching earrings, a crystal hair tiara with a whole arm of sparkling diamante bracelets and on every finger a dazzling ring – The result is so over the top, that selfies are out. Too much glare will make it difficult to photograph. Of course, if you are dressing up for a fancy dress party – go ahead. Or you are acting as the Dame or Widow Twankey in a pantomime then go for the full set – tiara, necklaces, earrings, bracelets galore ….

What diamante jewellery to choose?

With a plain black outfit wear clear diamante jewellery. If you have a red, blue or any other colour outfits – choose a matching coloured diamante or a lighter colour. However, if you are unable to find a colour that matches – play it safe and wear clear diamante pieces. One pair of diamante earrings can look stunning with a simple black dress. Or just a diamante necklace on its own with a black, red or blue dress. A matching diamante necklace with matching bracelet will look brilliant together, but take care when adding a pair of earrings – does it look too much? At Jewels & Finery, we have a huge assortment of diamanté or rhinestone jewellery from brooches to earrings, necklaces and bracelets. So take a look.

Bank Holiday News & New Adds This Month

Well we have been busy again this Bank Holiday at the end of May, changing design to Jewels & Finery. Hope you like this one. Let us know if you have any comments please, We just liked the drop down boxes and the fact that more brooches displayed on one page of 100.

So for this Bank Holiday – the usual stuff. The Royal Mail Postal Service does not operate on a Bank Holiday or Sunday. So everything will be posted on Tuesday. We also do not post on a Saturday – unless it is an express delivery item, sold before 9 am or Christmas. Because we are a small family business – we do need a life!!

Over the last few days, we have added loads of vintage ties and vintage buttons – so here are just a few.

New Look to Our Fabulous Jewellery Website

Well for 2017, we have a brand new look to our fabulous jewellery website. It has been synchronized with our other one, Hemlock & Rose to both look and work the same. Easier to search our 1500 + jewellery and accessories and look up all the brilliant vintage information we have published over the last 8 years.

Yes we started out in 2008 and don’t know where the years have gone to……They have certainly flown bye. A whole 8 years have passed since the beginning. We have lots of new ideas for this year. We will expand our vintage-recycled and homemade brands. And of course add lots of more one of a kind jewels.

So take a look and see what you think? We like that it is simple to navigate. It has a lot of bigger images and you can search more easily. We do only sell online and only on this website though. So you won’t get many, many of our pretty selections anywhere else.

Christmas jewellery to get you in the festive mood

merry christmas to Jewels & Finery's customers.

It is the season to be  cheerful! So to get you in the festive mood we have lots of Christmas jewellery in bling style or shaped in Christmas trees, candles and good old Father Christmas. Have a look below at our great collection – vintage, pre-owned and some are new pieces.

Also just a reminder we will be open to buy all over the Christmas and New Year; but dispatch will be when Royal Mail are back from their festive break. This is the best time of the year, but it is also the time when it is busy. So some delays will take place. It is now best to use the express delivery if you want to use during Christmas or the New Year period. Just in case!

Spring is in the air

Yes, Spring is here and the weather is not bad. With a few sunny days and of course the rain and snow of April. Typically English weather unpredictable. And talking about England – we specifically source English made items for Jewels & Finery. We also specialise in vintage crockery and replacement cups, saucers and homeware that was made here in the UK. Most of these firms are no longer in production and so replecements can be hard to find.

Here are just a few examples of what we have on offer at the moment. 12 plates from Royal Doulton in a fabulous 1920s Art Deco design.

We have vintage plates, saucers, cups and spoons to add a little retro vintage style to your home. Most were made in England or the UK. But we do have crockery made in Poland and Germany available at the moment.
