Little treasures and my first ever GIVEAWAY!! UPDATE!!

A trip home isn't complete without a visit to my Auntie's jewelry shop. My sister, Kelly, and I were with our Auntie at the very beginning of her venture in opening Victoria Highfield Jewelers, back when we were 12 years old. We would work there every Saturday, armed with homemade pizza and flasks full of pastina, what can I say? Grandad liked to make sure we had lunch everyday, have I mentioned before just how much I love him??!! :) Kelly and I would enjoy looking at the jewelry and, of course, always had a blast trying things on. It was awesome to watch our Auntie work and inspiring to see how good she was, and is, at her job!! :)  She dreamed big and over the past few years has moved to various different locations, expanding the shop, changing the design and finding new, fresh and unique brands and pieces for her customers. It's funny to think that I'm not really a huge jewelry person, I go through phases and wear stuff for a little while and then I just have days where I forget to accessorize, (most days :p) or I forget that I even own necklaces and bracelets. However, on my last visit home, back in June, that changed somewhat and I saw a few bits and bobs that I couldn't resist and that's what I'm going to share with you today. But before I do so, I encourage you to check out http://www.victoriahighfield.com/ for the most beautiful collections, brands and one of a kind pieces. Furthermore, if you happen to live in Stockport, please visit the shop and say hi, you will find that my Auntie is incredibly fun and friendly and extremely awesome, as is all her staff. Hi Gary, Tom and Jenny!! :)

So, the first thing I have to share is my most favourite and most important, and the two things that I do remember to put on everyday. While I didn't purchase them on this trip, I did get them cleaned, so they still count! :p My wedding rings! :) Now, my husband got my engagement ring, so that I can't shed much light on, besides the fact that it's beautiful and I adore it. When it came to getting our wedding rings though, there was only one place I was going to go and one person I was going to call. (Who you gonna call?? :p)  My Auntie took my engagement ring to be sized and in the process designed and had made my gorgeous wedding band to match it! I didn't see it until my wedding day and I immediately fell in love! It is a 2.5mm white gold diamond set wedding band...stunning! Thank you Auntie Ang.


Every time I go in to the shop my Auntie likes to proudly show me her new ranges, as well as insist that I need a new watch. I finally gave in this time when she showed me this pretty rose gold Sekonda, with a white leather strap. I have been loving all things rose gold lately, so this is perfect. I like it too because it makes me feel more mature and elegant and can make a nice addition to any outfit without too much thought or effort. It is also available with a white face and you can find it in store and online!


I have noticed that big, bold, statement jewelry is on trend this year, so when I walked in and saw this next piece, I just had to pick it up and try it on. In my hand it looked a tad daunting but once I put it on there was no hesitating and in my suitcase it went! :) This is by the brand Fiorelli Fashion. The colours simply pop and make me smile and the flowers make it an ideal summer fashion statement.  


Next is a necklace that instantly caught my eye. One, because again it is rose gold and two, because it is just oh so sparkly. In saying that though, it's not your typical sparkle, it is Glam Film, which has this amazing crystal glittery look to it that is so very pretty. Take a look! :) This is from the brand Rebecca.


Last but not least, Victoria Highfield has some of the cutest ranges I have ever seen and some days you just need that extra bit of sweet. The Daisy line makes me happy. Back when I worked with my kids at Freshfield Nursery I used to wear Daisy necklaces all the time, in particular a gorgeous bumble bee (that I must dig out of my jewelry box) that the kids just loved and liked to play with. It brings back such happy memories! I love that a special piece of jewelry can have that effect. :) This Daisy necklace adds the right amount of cute and girlie to any outfit and brings a bit of sunshine to every day. :)



I hope you have enjoyed looking at these pieces and that you find something you like either in store or online at www.victoriahighfield.com

I will say, although it may seem biased, I would choose Victoria Highfield over any corporate jewelers any day of the week. They truly care about the customer and treat every piece of jewelry as special. They know that one day you may want to pass it down. They know that when you bring something in for a repair that it may not just be a fashion accessory but something that holds meaning to you and they treat it as such. I have seen many customers come in looking to purchase wedding bands or engagement rings and honestly, my Auntie always lights up and wants to give them something unique, just for them. She truly understands and wants to make dreams come true through her little treasures! She is extraordinarily passionate about what she does and over the years I have had the pleasure of seeing that first hand and for that I am very blessed.

When I told her I was excited and wanted to show off my growing jewelry collection on my blog, she suggested I do something fun and special, something to give back to all those who have been in her shop or visited her website, and also for me to say thank you to everyone that has been following my blog and taking time out of their day to read my ramblings. We appreciate every single one of you!!! So without further ado, I bring to you my first ever GIVEAWAY!! :)

Teaming up with Victoria Highfield one lucky winner will receive this beautiful multi crystal, magnetite, white cord Tresor Paris bracelet worth $255. All you have to do is comment below letting me know that you have visited https://www.facebook.com/vhjewellers and clicked "Like" I will be announcing the winner next Friday!
