February is here and it’s got off to a very wet start where we live… it has rained so much! Our kitchen floor has never been so muddy from my Cairns heading in and out of the garden and as a result it’s never been cleaned so much!
Speaking of my Cairns if you caught my last blog you’ll know that Bramble had to have a small operation on her eye to remove a tiny lump on the lower eye lid.
Well… the cone has finally been removed, stitches are out and we were given the all-clear on the test that was carried out on the sample. Phew! I think the 10 days with the cone were some of the slowest and most boring for Bramble. I daren’t let her off the lead when we were out walking in case she became tangled in some bushes!
She’s back to her usual antics now by running off with socks, shoes and slippers… wouldn’t have it any other way!
A big thank you to our amazing vet for taking such good care of her.
So February has arrived and it’s the perfect opportunity to highlight the birthstone of the month – which of course is Amethyst.
I adore this gemstone and we have a wonderful selection of beautiful designs which you’ll find online.
I’ve had a passion for gems ever since I joined QVC. I have many favourites and Amethyst is certainly among them. I adore the saturation of colour you’re often spoilt with and when I saw this breathtaking geode for sale back home on the Isle of Wight a few years back, I couldn’t resist. It stands with pride in our hallway.
Amethyst has been prized for thousands of years and for over 20 years at QVC!
A couple of designs which have really caught my eye online are these rings.
Firstly, set in 9 carat white gold, the Amethyst and Diamond trilogy ring. Gorgeously elegant and delightfully simple. The bright white metal sets off the rich indigo hue of the Amethyst perfectly.
Now, if you’re after something grander in size then look no further than this striking cocktail ring.
A true showstopper. The Amethyst is an impressive 6.41 carats and the multi faceted stone is certain to play the light beautifully. I also really like the gentle accent of diamond in the shoulders which bring balance and a perfect finishing touch to the design.
Two very different rings and both very, very eye catching.
On the subject of jewellery – let’s stay with sparkle for a little longer!
I see Jill Franks is launching the spectacular Diamonique Today’s Special Value this Thursday 8th February at midnight as we head into Friday morning.
The fabulous Ultimate Glamour Circle Pendant!
In the meantime, before I head to QVC a little later I’ve promised my Cairns another well-earned walk… without the cone and plenty of mud for sure!
Take care and see you soon.
