On a Leap Year: Rings to Win Hearts

I have heard that in times past, a leap year gave a woman license to propose marriage; all I can say is thank goodness we are in the 21st century and we don’t have to wait to say what’s on our minds! Or wait (for whatever reason) to receive a ring, because we can purchase one for ourselves!

Maybe in this leap year, you might find one (or two), that will grace your hand?


Rings = Eye Candy!

In store we have an assortment of original and hand crafted rings, different materials, including sterling silver (and oxidised), gold, gold vermeil, resin, diamonds and semi-precious stones.  The rings are made from a range of jewellers, designers and metalsmiths from Australia and around the world, which equates to originality and uniqueness – something special for you to wear.

We have many sizes in stock, if you don’t see your ring size, don’t worry, many of the rings are available as a special order, so you can have the ring custom sized to fit your finger.  If you don’t know your ring size, please contact us and we will be delighted to send you a free ring sizer.

A spoonful of diamonds..a spoonful of gold…by Amy Renshaw

Amy Renshaw has playfully captioned her new collection of bespoke rings “a spoonful of diamonds, a spoonful of gold”,  in this series you will find the striking and stunning: “Polka Dot” Rings.  Her work brings a new colourful and sumptuous aesthetic to stacking rings, using 18ct gold, a Ceylon blue sapphire and brilliant cut diamonds.

Love Story : Out of Africa

In keeping with our LOVE theme from our newsletter, I’ve styled some contemporary pieces from the store to compliment one of my favourite love stories “Out of Africa”.

You might already know, that “Out of Africa”, is an auto-biographical account of Karen Blixen’s experience in Kenya (circa 1913). Her story was made into a magical film in the 80’s and it is certainly an epic piece of filmmaking; perfect for curling up on the sofa next time you’d like to unwind.

One of my favourite scenes unfolds when Karen (Meryl Streep) has her hair washed by Denys (Robert Redford); you’ll never think of a shampoo and rinse the same way again!

Lobo Luxe’s first Bride!

Clair & Clint’s Wedding

Clair and Clint were married in November this year, and I am very pleased to say that Clair chose her earrings from Lobo Luxe.

I enjoyed assisting Clair to find a special pair of earrings that would add the finishing touches to her wedding look, she chose the beautiful Golden Long Branch Earrings by Louise Douglas. As you can see Clair looks beautiful and serene, and the earrings are a perfect highlight to her dress.

Clair also chose Robindira Unsworth, Etruscan Earrings for her gorgeous bridesmaids, and they were a perfect compliment to their look.

It was lots of fun working with Clair to find something special for her wedding, and we would love the opportunity to help you!

My best wishes to Clair and Clint a very long, fulfilling and happy life together x.
