Love is in the Air - Valentine Gift Ideas!

Love is in the air, la la la, la la la, love is in the air....

Some of you may think Valentine's Day is commercial and cheesy but you have to admit, it does brighten up things at a time of year when it's all a bit grey and spring still seems ages away. I am always happy just to receive a nice box of chocolates (preferably from Artisan du Chocolat - hint) but if you need to get something a bit more exciting to impress your Valentine, here are some suggestions:

For fashionista Valentines, you can't go wrong with some CC Skye Jewellery and just in time for Valentine's Day, we have in stock their fabulously simple Love Necklace - made from 18 gold-plated vermeil (plated sterling silver), it is a beautiful and timeless gift. Alternatively, maybe a sterling silver angel wings necklace for your angel? This style is famous for being worn to death by Nicole Richie so you will also get brownie points for your celeb awareness.

For the musical Valentine, Dogeared Jewels from California designed this gorgeous and simple gift necklace - a delicate sterling silver chain with a tiny musical note pendant.

For the princess in your life, you are spoilt for choice! Disney Couture have a huge array of appropriate designs which would make perfect gifts for some one special in your life. Our two bestsellers include the gorgeous enchanted rose necklace and the princess pendant:

For a more traditional gift, look to Butler & Wilson's range of heart jewellery - we particularly love the pave crystal heart necklace - all sparkly with Swarovski crystals, it is a very romantic offering.

If it's a little gesture you are after, then you won't do much better than the LOVE word keyring - since a similar item featured in the Sex and the City Movie, these have been popular all over the world and have sold in their hundreds.... Maybe love does make the world go round... xxx

New CC Skye jewellery in stock now

January is always a busy time - after the craziness of Christmas and the sales, you'd think it would be all lovely and restful... but no, January is the time of re-stocking/stocktaking/paperwork. No rest for the wicked!

Our latest CC Skye delivery brought us a combination of old favourites like the double wrap bracelet and my favourite piece of all time, Rihanna's Swarovski-encrusted assymetric angel wings

We also have some new pieces including the silver version of the angel wing necklace loved by Nicole Richie, the spikey suede wrap bracelet and the popular screw bracelets in a variety of colours, including a retro-fabulous neon pink.

Later on this year, we hope to expand the collection and include some of the gorgeous handbags in the CC Skye collection. My eye is on the electric blue oversized Niki clutch - love it, want, heck I need this bag!!

Coming soon - Dogeared Jewels' Sex and the City Collection

Regular readers of the blog will know that I am a huge fan of the Sex and the City series. Just as 2010 couldn't get more exciting with the release of the sequel, to the movie, Californian jewellery brand Dogeared have announced that they have officially licensed the SATC brand from HBO and will create a stunning collection of Sex and the City inspired pie ces.

The range will feature charms on necklaces to represent iconic themes from the award-winning series including a stilleto shoe, a diamond and the Eiffel Tower. These will be presented on specially designed cards, printed with New York's famous skyline and a memorable line from Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha including "Single & Fabulous" and "Hopeless Romantic"

As an approved UK stockist of the Dogeared Sex and the City collection, Zentosa will have the pieces available to buy from mid-April. The designs are currently top secret - it's all terribly hush hush and exciting - but we will show the designs as soon as we are allowed to. I can assure you, they're really fabulous! In the meantime, I thought you'd appreciate a pic of Aidan Shaw (after the hair cut) my favourite male character from the series - Carrie, why oh why?
