Dazzling Jewellery from Mummy Days

 

It’s Christmas!!!!   As we enter the magical last week before Christmas, I had the pleasure to also think of my Son’s 6th birthday.  An afternoon at the #BritishMuseum was all he wanted and so that is what we did!  If he wants to learn about history, who am I to stop him?!!  Saved me shoving through crowds of people in Hamley’s, Winter Wonderland, Ice rinks and all the other top attractions in London at this time of year, phew!

MY JEWELLERY HISTORY & TERMS YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND!

 

Have you ever wondered what semi-precious, ST,  rhodium, .925  means?  These are just a few of the terms which you will often see when purchasing jewellery.

My History with Jewellery: I first stumbled upon these type of words way back in the 80’s when growing up. My parents owned a wholesale business on Berwick St. London, selling all types of costume jewellery, from Swarovski, glass and metal beads to hardware for customers to make up their own pieces to sell.

The fun part was, as a baby, I actually used to play in my Father’s warehouse/factory and learnt how to walk there!  I even ate the tiny beads that had fallen to the floor.  This would nowadays, probably send any parent into a meltdown and a trip to A&E!!  However, my parents carried on with their day, slogging away day after day whilst I enjoyed my bead treats!

To this day, the business is still running and has gone from strength to strength and is a huge success.  Please have a browse on www.internationalcraft.com.

Difference Between Silver and Sterling Silver

 

What is the difference between silver and sterling silver?

 

Silver vs. Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver and silver can often by described as the same thing, but in reality, sterling silver is only an alloy of silver and is much more hard wearing.  Silver, which is usually called fine silver, consists of 99.9% pure silver. On the other hand, sterling silver consists of approximately 92.5% silver, and the remaining 7.5% (or even more) is of other metals. Due to the high percentage of silver in ‘pure silver,’ it cannot be used to make those daily rough and tuff items.  Pure silver is too soft if it is to be made into jewellery.

Why Buy Handcrafted Jewellery?

10 REASONS TO BUY HANDCRAFTED JEWELLERY

1) I don’t know about you, but as a busy mum, I seem to have limited time to keep going in and out of the house to shop for any kind of jewellery, especially with a young family in tow! Forget about department store jewellery which tends to be mass produced and designed toward the trend of the moment. Nice for a bold fashion statement but why not celebrate your own style and gift someone a unique personalised piece, what most people don’t have.
