Inspired By Nature

Image
Thrilled to share something with you! As you know ‘inspired by nature’ is a very strong influence in the Argent branding and now if you have a special rose bush, stem from your wedding bouquet or just a favourite plant we can turn that memory into something tangible you can wear.We take a mould from the stem and then cast it in silver or gold so that each bangle has the actual original markings.In the collection already we have a rose stem from my garden and an olive branch.I have just made myself a solid gold bangle from the beautiful wisteria that surrounds our house!

The Old York Street Party 2012
Sunday saw the first of a new style of Street Party for Old York Road! Musicans, Food Stalls and hundreds of residents transformed Old York Road to a bustling Sunday music festival!
With all ages involved there was face painting, ice creams, delicious BBQs and a lot of fun.
The weather was beautiful and the day a great success in every way - there is even some whispers of a Christmas event (fingers crossed!)
Here are some of our favourite pictures from the day..

Inspired by Nature, Created By Hand

Chief designer Gail Goodrich has always been inspired by the natural world in creating her designs, and this seasons offerings prove no exception. Paying tribute to Mother Nature, these beautiful pieces embrace the Argent concept of ‘affordable luxury'.



Our favourite piece from this year’s collection has proved hugely popular due to its unique charm. This gorgeous silver mussel pendant has a hidden jewel: a little pearl nestling inside. It is simply stunning and makes a perfect present.
Priced at £84 including a fine silver curb chain. http://www.argentlondon.com/products/nature/sterling-silver-pearl-mussel-shell-pendant/#

As we approach what is meant to be a great week of summer weather (we have even been promised a break from the endless rain!) here at Argent of London, we are hoping that choosing the ‘stay-cation’ approach will pay off for us! Even if it doesn’t, we are going to indulge in some beautiful summery jewellery and pretend we are in St Tropez.  One piece that always makes us feel like we’ve escaped Britain for sunnier climes is our ‘fiesta’ gold and gemstone necklace.
Perfect for brightening up any outfit, this gold vermeil necklace is dotted with exquisite gemstones: amethyst, citrine, rose quartz, iolite and peridot. http://www.argentlondon.com/products/necklaces/long-fiesta-gemstone-necklace/

The combination of gold and silver means that it can be worn with both type of jewellery and the bright stone in the midd…

Five starfish and shell pendants hang from the Dafni necklace.There is a choice between silver or gold pendants, depending on what you prefer. The Dafni necklace is made from aquamarine beads and closes with a lobster claw clasp.Aquamarine, the "Gem of the Sea", is said to sparkle like the sea and is a pale to medium blue.Aquamarine is the birthstone for March, and is believed to endow the wearer with foresight, courage, willpower and happiness.

Have you seen the eggs?

Image
The wonderful weather at the moment has meant that the team at Argent have been out and about a little more than usual, enjoying the warmer weather and lighter evenings.Some of us have been surprised to stumble across those beautiful eggs which have recently appeared across Central London.The eggs are part of The FabergĂ© Big Egg Hunt.Our favorites include artist Anna Master’s When I Grow Up and young design label Tata-Naka’s Benedicte.
The detail of Tata-Naka’s egg in particular reminded us of our own beautiful enamel egg collection which is inspired by the work of Carl FabergĂ©.
If all this talk about Easter eggs gets you eggsited, or if you miss out on The Big Egg Hunt’s first prize, (The Diamond Jubilee Egg, worth £100,000) don’t forget to check out our collection of enamel egg pendants, very eye-catching pieces that can be worn throughout the year, but are particularly apt for Easter!Priced from £198-£298. http://www.argentlondon.com/products/easter/

Gail's March News

It’s that time of year again when we have to start thinking about our Catalogue.  I think our collection of jewellery this year is even more colourful than usual – some truly gorgeous new pieces with aquamarines, rose quartz and all the soft pastel colours.  In the office we are happy to dream of shooting these in sunnier climates but with the beautiful weather we are experiencing at the moment I think we are going to settle on a beach (and beach huts!) on the South Coast!  A couple of examples below.  By the way the long necklaces have already been spotted by the Daily Mail and will be featured with swim wear shortly!! http://www.argentlondon.com/products/necklaces/st-lucia-aqua-chalcedony-and-pearl-drop-necklace/

Can I have that personalised?

Image
More and more of our customers are looking for unique jewellery that is in some ways personalized to them.Whether it’s for a Christening, birthday or even a thank you present for a favourite teacher, the new trend is for ‘different’ and ‘distinctive’ ways to say it.
At Argent we have embraced this idea and offer several suggestions for each and every customer.
In our opinion (if we may..), the ultimate way to personalise is by engraving.This makes something really special and ensures it is also one of a kind.From an initial engraved onto one of our friendship bracelets to a special message secretly hidden on something – you can be as imaginative as you like and are guaranteed to end up with a completely unique piece.We have a fantastic engraver who treats each project with great care, attention and creativity – he is incredibly experienced and each piece is a true work of art.
Another suggestion we like to give to our customers are our little silver initials which are perfect for adding …
