Zentosa's Sex and the City collection

As huge fans of the Sex and the City series, 2010 is a very exciting year for us with the movie sequel being released in May. We already stock some fabulous pieces inspired by the 2008 movie and television series - our Love word keyring is a massive seller, as is the fabulous large gold butterfly necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane - Carrie wore this spectacular piece in series 2 and it's been flying out (excuse the pun) since.

Furthermore, to coincide with the release of the sequel to the SATC movie, Californian jewellery brand Dogeared have officially licensed the SATC brand from HBO and produced a gorgeous collection of Sex and the City pieces inspired by Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha.

The range will be available in sterling silver or gold-dipped versions and 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" They will be presented in branded pouches are would make the perfect accessory or gift for any SATC fan.
These are available to pre-order now with delivery around mid-April. As with anything associated with the movie, this range is going to be big or should I say Mr Big?

Alice in Wonderland Fever hits Zentosa!

I think the world has gone a teency bit Alice in Wonderland mad! After months of anticipation, the film is nearly ready for release in its full 3D-effect glory! With Mr Jonny Depp and his star-studded cast mates appearing in Leicester Square this Thursday for the premiere and Selfridges filling their displays with Alice in Wonderland themed fashion and goodies, it seems like the UK has gone Alice crazy! And who can blame them when, judging by the trailer, it's going to be a visual masterpiece! My tickets are already purchased....

Our Disney Couture Alice in Wonderland collection has been available for just over a week now and it has been our fastest selling collection ever! And we should know, having one of the world's largest selection of Disney Couture jewellery. The popularity has taken us a little bit by surprise and several lines have sold out or are close to selling out after just a few days - and this is even before the movie has been released...
In the meantime, we have just taken delivery of new Alice in Wonderland themed charm bracelets from the Tom Binns for Disney Couture collection. These collectible pieces are made in the USA. This is a gorgeous collection of beautifully crafted jewellery - the detailing is absolutely amazing. I love them both but for me the tea party bracelet has an edge, mainly because it features cake and who doesn't love a bit of cake?

We Love Love Love the CC Skye Niki Clutch

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I've been pondering over the accessories I love the most. I came to the conclusion that jewellery is my first love but bags do come a very (let me emphasise very) close second. Due to popular demand, we will be stocking at the end of the month, what must be one of the chic-est bags we've seen. CC Skye is well know for their edgy jewellery but has also gained a reputation for their fabulous leather handbags.

The CC Skye Niki clutch is an over-sized quilted clutch bag featuring CC Skye's trademark metal detailing. The over-sized pyramid studs are 14kt gold-plated.

Available in black, neon pink and electric blue (swoon), these bags have been clutched by a number of high profile celebrities including the Hilton sisters (both Nicky and Paris - I am sure they have one each), Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles. If I had one, I wouldn't be letting it go either....

Disney Couture's Alice in Wonderland Collection - preview!

Fact: Alice in Wonderland was my favourite book as a girl so I will be first in the queue when Tim Burton's much-anticipated cinematic version premieres in the UK on 5th March. Starring a fabulous cast including Johnny Depp, Ann Hathaway, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter, it promises to be amazing to watch.

Very nearly as exciting is the imminent arrival of Disney Couture's Alice in Wonderland jewellery collection. This is due to arrive in the next couple of weeks and I, for one, can't wait to see the pieces in real life.

There will be 2 collections - first, an exclusive collaboration with Council of Fashion Designers of America winner Tom Binns whose work has been seen on the First Lady, Michelle Obama. This luxe collection is about the detailing - we love the tea party themed charm bracelet and earrings.

The main Disney Couture Alice in Wonderland collection features themes including the white rabbit, Alice's drink me bottle, keys, tea cups, clocks and the Mad Hatter.

We are particular enthralled by the pocket watch necklaces and the "curiouser and curiouser" hoop earrings.

This collection has an edgier look than the Disney Couture ranges we've been used to in the past - there is more use of oxidised silver for a start - but I am sure you will love these pieces as much as I do.

Need an inspirational gift? Dogeared Jewels make perfect presents

Ever since we saw Mischa Barton's character in the OC sporting the gold wishbone necklace, we've been in love with the Dogeared Brand. Californian designer, Dogeared Jewels, has a pretty simple philosophy - to spread positive energy into the world with personal and positive gifts.

Famous for their Make a Wish Necklaces, reminder jewellery, karma pieces and Word Jewels, their gorgeous designs have graced the necks and wrists of celebrities, stylists, film and TV stars everywhere.

Most pieces come on a branded card with a special and inspiring message. Bestsellers include the Bridesmaid necklaces, perfect for giving to your special wedding attendants.

From this season, we love the Dogeared Diamond necklaces, the pretty "Tying the Knot" necklace and the Keep Calm and Carry On necklace - afterall, in this economic climate, it's a good mantra to maintain....

Our newest brand! Lola Rose SS10 has arrived at Zentosa

Well it's been a long wait but well worth it. Our first collection of pieces by fabulous British designer Lola Rose has arrived. The gorgeous colours remind us of summer days - teal, lavender, berry, rose pink, turquoisey blue howlite... Lola Rose was founded in 2000 by Nicola Gewirtz who wanted to produce energetic and vivacious collections of semi-precious jewellery in a vivid colour palette and bold style. 10 years later, the brand has grown and Lola Rose jewellery is renowned worldwide for their affordable, luxury jewellery. The collections consist of classic and timeless pieces as well as cutting-edge fashion jewellery favoured by celebrities.

This season sees nature-themed pieces - birds and butterflies - as well as re-worked classics. The Casey tumble bracelet is simple and tactile - we predict this will be a bestseller.
Hearts and flowers still feature strongly in the collection proving Lola Rose has not lost any of its feminine style.
The rings this season are big and bold - Eddie is a huge gobstopper cocktail ring available in stunning colours.

All of the pieces are made out of high quality materials and presented as always in beautiful, branded Lola Rose velveteen pouches. Lola Rose jewellery makes wonderful gifts and looked after, will last a lifetime.
