    STARS DON’T NEED STRIPES...

    STARS  DON’T  NEED  STRIPES...
    We have recently seen an influx in star patterns which begs the question, when did they appear in fashion and why is it such a popular symbol?  The trend accelerated towards the run up to New Years eve, becoming more popular since the anticipated Star Wars movie: "The Last Jedi" made an appearance. The actress Daisy Ridley wore a star themed dress to the premier. Star prints are now almost everywhere, from dresses and accessories to interior design.                                     A star symbolises luck, protection, guidance and security.

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF VALENTINE'S DAY?

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF VALENTINE'S DAY?
    We were just working on our Valentines newsletter and realised that none of us actually knew the story behind St. Valentines. We have embraced the day of romance to varying degrees without having any idea about the origin of this celebration. So we got curious and started to have a look and found many different explanations, adding to the mystery. We thought we share with you
    our favourite legends, neither of them particularly romantic I’m afraid.

    November Birthstones

    November Birthstones
    November Birthstones - Citrine Quartz and Topaz. As you might know, every month is associated with a particular gemstone, which is referred to as a birthstone. It is a common tradition to gift a piece of jewellery for someone's birthday, which features a birthstone. Citrine Quartz and Topaz are both associated with the month of November, so those born in this month are lucky enough to have two birthstones. Both gems play a wonderful part of capturing the warm Autumn feeling. The golden hues of the Citrine alike the fallen leaves, contrasting the blue skies symbolised by the Blue Topaz.     ...

    All Stacked Up.

    All Stacked Up.
    As seen by Fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, the actress Emma Watson or Chanel Haute Couture.   Stacking rings have been a leading jewellery trend for the past seasons and the trend is still a firm favourite style that shows no sign of disappearing. This understated yet striking trend can be seen everywhere from the red carpet to the runway.  The trend is simple enough to pull off, layer multiple rings across several fingers or for more of a statement, simply stack on one finger.  The trick is to keep things simple by sticking to minimalist stackables.  At Neola we suggest...
