My Diamonique design!

20

Hello!

I hope this weeks blog finds you well.

We’re in the midst of the summer holidays and although I never wish the time away I’m really excited about my Diamonique design coming to QVC in the not too distant future. Hopefully, all being well, September!

We’re celebrating 25 fabulous years of Diamonique at QVC. It is the most special of jewellery collections and I simply adore the range and I always feel very privileged when asked to present a show.

A number of us were asked to come up with a design as part of the celebrations. We saw Dale’s and Alison’s designs in my last blog, and not surprisingly, both have been really popular.

I presented this sketch to our buyers earlier this year, and I was thrilled to see how much they liked the design and wanted to take it further.

I’m no artist, but the design team took my concept and returned with a few technical drawings. I’m really pleased with the interpretation. They’ve done a fantastic job.

Wish Upon A Star was inspired by my wonderful mum who loves to while away the time gazing into the night sky. I think it must be from her I get my love of astronomy and the unknown! The word ‘Wish’ will be laser engraved on the reverse and can be interpreted any which way you choose when giving or receiving as a gift!

A sample arrived from our supplier and the detail has been captured beautifully. I met with our buyer, we’ve made a few tweaks, and I suggested a slightly finer chain, which we have now chosen and I believe manufacturing is underway! Fingers crossed!

I can’t wait to show you the final design very soon. Crafted in sterling silver with a choice of plating in either Yellow Gold, Rose Gold, or Rhodium.

I’d love to know what you think!

See you soon and happy summer holidays!

    Hi Charlie, I love your design and the thought behind it. I am actually wearing a very small star necklace at the moment which I love wearing. I will certainly be purchasing yours when it becomes available.

    Hi Charlie! Your design is my favourite! It is just perfect. I love stars & my Mum says that she loves to look at the stars in the sky as they make her feel safe, she likes to think that everyone she has lost are watching over her through the night. I love that theory & I too love looking at the stars. I will definitely be treating myself to one & love the inscription on the back. Thanks for a lovely design. I will be thinking of you next week when I sail over the the Isle of Wight. Already booked a facial with Donna & the team at Liz Earle & will be there for Cowes week so really excited!
    Have a great week
    Love from Mandy x

    I love the fact that there’s an extender. Most diamonique chains are 45cm which is a tad too short for me. Will definitely be buying this x

    Hi Charlie,
    Absolutely love your design and the sentiment behind it, I’ve always loved looking at the stars but even more so since I lost my mum a few years ago, I always remember the quote ⭐Stars are little holes in the floor of heaven ⭐
    Can’t wait to purchase your design.

    Hi Diane, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mum.
    I too have a special connection with the stars in our sky. I just love the quote you gave. I’ve never heard that before. Simply beautiful.

    Looking forward to seeing these when they air. Like others I like stars. I especially like where the pendants are suspended with the chain at either side.

    Hello Hazel, I’m really touched you’re choosing my star. Thank you so much, it means a great deal. I’m delighted to hear how much you like it.

    Hi Julia, thank you! I too like the way the chain attaches. It was a conscious decision when deciding.

    I adore stars too!

    Hope you like!!

    Cheers

    Charlie
