We all need to splash out and treat ourselves and our loved ones now and then, and what better way to do it than with fabulous jewellery! To celebrate a special birthday, a new job or the birth of a child – these are all great reasons to indulge in something truly special that will become a keepsake to treasure for years to come.
Our luxury jewellery collection has just launched on qvcuk.com, featuring a stunning selection of rare and exotic gems, diamonds, gold designs and much more. We asked presenters Katy Pullinger, Jackie Kabler, Debbie Flint and Claire Sutton to tell us which pieces caught their eye…
Katy on the gemstone slider necklace
“What I love about this beautiful gemstone necklace is not just the fact that it’s so sparkly and pretty, but because it’s so versatile. More often these days we want even more value for money so a necklace that can be worn in more than one way is an absolute winner.
Because of the sliding fastener on this piece it can be worn at many different lengths. I particularly like it as a choker as they are so incredibly fashionable at the moment. This is of course a more considered purchase, but you are investing in gold plating and also a substantial amount of gemstones. You have a choice of Aquamarine, Morganite and stunning Tanzanite. This would make a very special gift for a very special birthday perhaps?”
Jackie on the Diamond Spectacular ring
“I’ve always absolutely adored diamonds, ever since I was choosing my engagement ring more than 20 years ago, and fell in love with a princess-cut diamond ring. To me, diamonds are the ultimate luxury – classic, sparkling, stylish, eye-catching. This one carat diamond band ring is stunning, and a contemporary take on a traditional diamond ring.
I love the mix of round and baguette-cut diamonds, and the width makes it really modern looking. It’s perfect if, like me, you prefer pieces that aren’t too delicate. I’d wear this day, night, all the time!”
Claire on the five-stone diamond ring
“As a girl who loves sparkle, my favourite phrase, and one my daughter Maddie now quotes too is “don’t let anyone dull your sparkle”. I wonder if this is why I am drawn to the beauty of a diamond? NEVER can anyone or anything dull its magnificent sparkle!
Now most usually my eye is caught by the biggest the boldest, the most glamorous of rings, however, I cannot deny that this diamond ring simply spoke to me and I wondered why when it is so different to my usual choice. Well clearly it is perfectly put together, the quality of the diamonds and the setting is undeniably of a high standard which is something I always look out for – it’s a perfect one carat. So what is it about THIS ring that has captured me?
I suddenly realised it IS me! let me explain. It’s a five-stone ring, I am five things… a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife, and a mother. All of these things I am most grateful and proud to be – they make up “me”.
It’s multi-faceted and that is also me and you and, well, all of us isn’t it, so many different elements that make us the “whole”. As I approach my 50th birthday I realised these five stones are ME – my five decades from birth to now.
Each decade is represented with a diamond which sparkles, no matter what. Through difficult and challenging times and when spectacular and joyous moments have happened in my my life, I have always hoped and tried to keep the sparkle – this reminds me I did, I have and I will try always to do so.
I wonder what you will “see” as you look at our beautiful pieces of jewellery and what your story will be…?”
Debbie on the Radiance diamond hoop earrings
“These little hoop earrings are a perfect addition to your collection if you’re looking for the luxury of diamonds that are a nice, manageable size. They sit neatly around the ear lobe and click firmly into place, meaning you get security and peace of mind. Plus you can easily match the finishes to your existing jewellery as there is a choice of white, yellow and rose gold as well. A really special pair of diamond earrings!”
