2017 – A New Year, a new Sparkle Shop!
New Year's Eve is a global celebration of a fresh start.
A blank slate. A clean, as yet unsullied set of months offering us hope, new beginnings and possibly a bit of a detox from the excesses of the past year. And let’s face it, 2016 gave us a bit to detox from!
With all its surprises and dark moments, a slew of celebrity deaths and the losses of those less well known but no less loved, it is hard to imagine that anyone was unaffected by this year. The celebration of the New Year inspires hope and optimism around the world. It comes as a chance to put our pasts behind us and to forge ahead to greater things.
With this in mind, we would like to introduce you to our brand new online store! Stocked with exciting designs by some of our favourite makers, crafted from precious materials and glittering gemstones, we hope to help you find your sparkle in our collection.
For those of you concerned about spending in the wake of Christmas, fear not! We have a layaway scheme that allows you to pay for your jewel over four months should you so wish. Just select the layaway option at checkout.
So here at ShinyPrettyThings, we resolve to work hard, to keep our ears and eyes open and to keep you informed on everything going on in the world of sparkles. We’ll be bringing you news and views on gemmology, jewellery history, the latest in jewellery fashion, as well as what’s going on in auctions, shows… in short, some of the very loveliest, most precious things in the world.
For now, let’s all enjoy the champagne and fireworks and say good riddance to 2016 and welcome in this New Year with all its promise and hope!
With much love and best wishes for the happiest of years.
