Celestial

When designing this collection, we were inspired by the radiance of the cosmos and also noted the trending aesthetic of celestial motifs such as moons and stars. As such, the collection features an abundance of these across an array of stunning stud earrings, perfect pendants and on-trend layered necklets. Some are decorated with sparkling cubic zirconia stones which attractively allude to this celestial inspiration and empower the designs to shimmer and shine even further. We love how they add a sense of serene sophistication to any look or outfit choice and we are sure you will love this aspect also. Consider too the universal appeal of the captivating celestial collection as it makes a great gift idea for someone special to you.

Droplets

Working with sleek sterling silver meant thinking about it and presenting it in many beautiful ways. Observing the slick form of liquid metal / quicksilver, we incorporated a droplet style into the collection to allude to this sense of movement and fluidity. This sees teardrop-like shapes daintily drape from beautiful bracelets and necklets for example. One pair of earrings in particular is crafted in the eye-catching climber style which sees round cut cubic zirconia sit up within the fold of the ear in a contemporary styling (instead of hanging from the lobe in the more traditional style). The result is a decadent collection of eye-catching jewellery that aads a serene sense of movement to your look when the pieces are worn.

Earring and Pendant Sets

While singular staple pieces will forever have a place within the jewellery collection of the stylish and sophisticated lady; we were conscious too that matching sets remain a decadent and desired choice too. We incorporated this cohesiveness across earring and pendant sets that showcase the marvellous marquise shape and luxuriously linear styles for example. Bars, strands and tassels also make appearances – as does the warm rose gold plating which adds a striking colour contrast with the cooler clear cubic zirconia and silver tones. What is great about these matching styles is that the pieces can still be worn individually without losing any of their charm or captivation. As such, they make for a versatile choice (and great gift idea) that you can always rely on.

Geometric

Overall within the collection lies a distinct and deliberate focus on gorgeous geometric shapes. Open circles, elongated bars, spherical decorations and more punctuate the designs and empower the pieces with both visual awareness and visual magnetism. Take for example the matching sterling silver and rose gold plated open circle and bar earrings and pendant. They incorporate this use of geometric shapes in tandem with colour interplay for an aesthetic that is sure to attract admirable attention. The use of geometrics is perfect for those who like their style to be noticeable without being over the top – stunning yet subtle in equal measure.

Slider Bracelets

There are many beautiful aspects to address and adore when discussing slider bracelets, but we love the slider style in itself due to the comfort and security it offers the wearer. As they can be adjusted to perfectly fit the wrist, one can rely on them to add beacons of beauty to the wrist that will remain stylishly in place at all times. Our slider bracelet designs within this sterling silver collection feature rows of sparkling cubic zirconia stones and beautiful beaded ball and sphere shapes – some of which are plated in opulent and on-trend rose gold. They make the perfect present for the stylish lady in your life. But do of course consider them too as an indulgent treat for you as their captivating aesthetic and comfortable application ensure you will cherish them forever.

Pearl – June’s Birthstone

For all those born in the month of June, your birthstone is the illustrious pearl. Seen as symbol of modesty, chastity and purity, the pearl is recognised as one of the oldest known gemstones.




Pearl Junes BirthstoneEach pearl is a true piece of art, formed entirely in nature. Born within molluscs such as oysters and mussels and used as a natural defence against irritants, the pearl is made up of layers of calcium carbonate with an incomparable shimmer.

Pearls can vary in colour from white to pinks, browns and blacks all depending on their place of birth and the levels of salt in the water. As the only gemstone derived from a living organism in the sea, the pearl requires no polishing to reveal its intrinsic beauty.

Pearl Jewellery at Fraser Hart

Pearls have been revered for their beauty for more than 4,000 years. Ancient Egyptians were so enamoured by this beautiful gem, they were often buried alongside them. Pharaoh Cleopatra was said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine in a bet, claiming she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in just one meal.

During the Dark Ages, knights wore pearls into battle to protect them from harm while fair noble ladies cherished gifts of pearl necklaces. Because of their high regard, a number of countries passed laws forbidding anyone other than nobility to wear them.

Today, the pearl is widely revered in the jewellery industry with its incomparable sheen and shimmer. Pairing perfectly with both yellow and white gold in a variety of styles, the humble pearls is beloved by all and a key staple in the traditional bridal outfit.

Emerald – May’s Birthstone

Named after the Greek word ‘smaragdos’ which translates into ‘green stone’, the Emerald has a long and rich history. At the earliest known gem market in Babylon in around 4,000 BC, an Emerald was dedicated by the Ancients to Venus, the Goddess of Love.




Cleopatra was also believed to have been extremely fond of the stone and claimed all the Egyptian Emerald mines for herself during her reign.

Emerald May Birthstone

Believed to be the month of rebirth, the Emerald has become widely recognised as the birthstone for May and is said to grant the wearer with good fortune, youth and foresight. The gemstone has a long standing relationship with the jewellery industry, having been mounted into a magnificent necklace set for the Russian jewellers of the 18th century and eventually inspiring the ‘Emerald Cut’ which is now used to cut diamonds. Nowadays, Emerald are the perfect gemstone for everything from a special pendant and earring set to your beloved and cherished engagement ring.

A symbol of loyalty, friendship and success this exquisite gemstone has become one of our most beloved and cherished precious stones and is the perfect gift for the May birthday in your life.

Diamonds – April’s birthstone

A symbol of purity, innocence and harmony, April is the month of the diamond. The purest, rarest and most valuable gemstone in history, diamonds were once reserved for Royalty – seen only in the tiaras and jewels of Kings and Queens. The magpies in us all stared longingly at these shimmering stones, captivated by their un-worldly allure and dreaming of the day they could be ours.

Today, that day has become a reality. The once untouchable diamond has now become one of our most desired commodities and continues to draw an admiring eye. Owning your own diamond is now a very tangible reality with a large variety of styles, prices and products to choose from.

 To understand the rarity of a diamond, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite statistics:

  • Chances are, the diamond you hold in your hand began life around 3.3 million years ago.
  • The Global diamond production in 2015 was estimated to be around 135.5M carats.
  • Only 19% of the worlds rough diamonds are of gem quality (e.g they are of high enough quality to set into the jewellery you buy).

The diamond is a stone with an undeniable sheen and sparkle so it is something bewildering to discover that they are formed of pure carbon – the very same substance as the graphite in your pencil! Every diamond found in your jewels has undergone a remarkable journey over a billion years ago beneath the earth’s surface.

All I Want For Christmas

The bells are ringing in the distance, the wrapping paper has descended on the high street and people are dusting off last year’s Christmas hats. It may only be the beginning of November but here at Fraser Hart we are well and truly in the festive spirit. Our stores have dug out their Christmas trees, brushed up on those essential gift wrapping skills and started their letters to Santa and we’re encouraging everyone to get involved.

Here at Fraser Hart, we’re all about the traditional Christmas. Picture logs under the fire, stockings hung from the chimney (with care) and mince pies left on the table for Santa to munch during his visit. This year, we’ve brought a traditional, homely Christmas to our stores and wrapped up everything you need to make your Christmas extra special.
