Mother’s Day at Lobo Luxe

Gift Guide mothers Day

Find Something Special for Your Mum : www.loboluxe.com

To my way of thinking, a day that is designated to celebrate Mothers – has to be special.  With the busy lives we lead, we don’t need to live far from our parents to sometimes feel disconnected from them.   Mother’s Day pushes families together in a gentle way, it gives us the opportunity to reflect on the special bond we have with our Mum’s and the nurturing and support they have given us over the years.  Mother’s Day for me is a bit of a logistical challenge, there is breakfast for me, made by my son,  lunch at my Mum’s and then my Mother-in-Law’s – phew it is a bit of a marathon but well worth it.

At Lobo Luxe we would like to offer all our wonderful customers a 30% off sale ( storewide for all ‘in stock’ items*).

 I hope you find something special for your Mum or a reward/treat for yourself.  The sale ends on the 6th May, so please be quick!.

Love Stories

St Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, and I have to say I do enjoy the romance associated with this day.  I do recall receiving a few Valentine’s Day Cards myself, many moons ago!

What’s wrong with celebrating love?  I  love hearing about how couples met, their ‘back story’ if you will, that’s why I really enjoyed the movie “When Harry Met Sally”; the little moments where couples – old and young share their first date and how they knew they had met the ‘one’.

St Valentine’s Day is a busy time in the store with many a romantic partner purchasing a heart shaped piece of jewellery; It’s an absolute treat when my customers share their stories about love and the inspiration behind their gifts.

The heart symbol has universal appeal, the jewellery pieces with this symbol have a strong following not only with lovers, but with family and friends too.

For example, recently a Mother bought her daughter a You and Me Bangle – by Flick Pope, as a symbol of her beating cancer and her daughter’s unwavering love and support during this stressful and challenging time.

Another customer purchased for herself the Heart of Gold Necklace – by Jessie Turner, because for her, this necklace epitomized her triumph over adversity, overcaming emotional pain and heartache; she did indeed have a giving heart of gold, the necklace became a talisman of hope, strength and triumph.  The greatest love of all, loving your self and being at peace.

Another sweet story was a young man, who enlisted his Mother’s help to purchase a gold heart pendant by Yasuko Azuma, for his sweetheart.  His Mother obligingly made the purchase on his behalf, he was under 18, and she did tell me that she was expecting to be reimbursed – pronto!  Apparently her son’s girlfriend was a gem and the Mother was delighted to help her son who had saved up for this special present.

I feel very privileged to hear the love stories from our customers, and as I always say, there never can be too much love, joy or peace in the world, Happy St Valentine’s Day!

Flick Pope ~ new styles

It is hard to believe that the store is entering into it’s fourth year of operations.  One of the first jewellers that I selected for the store is Victoria’s Flick Pope, her work resonates with me on so many levels, the romance, the feminine and organic forms and each piece has such an appealing essence.  I can’t say which piece I love more, but what I can say I love getting surprised with new pieces that Flick sends me, from time to time.

More recently we received the cross your heart ring, the silver princess earrings (yes to match the bangle), cloud earrings, wings earrings, and the sumptuous oke doke earrings.

Flick’s appeal transcends Victoria, with fans from all the states in Australia and a growing fan base internationally.

Gift Guides:

Elegance

 

We love putting together the Xmas Gift Guide and because we couldn’t limit ourselves to one, we have compiled three!  The three Guides are based on Elegance, Vibrance & Mono.  What I love about the Guides is that you can be a fan or collector of pieces from each, after all we are dynamic!  We feel confident you will find something special for yourself or the people you love.  I hope you can make yourself a cuppa, sit back and peruse our selections.Featured above is a peek at some of the classical lines and elegant pieces we have in store.  The work featured above is by Rebecca Overmann.  Rebecca uses organic shapes and textured finishes, different metals and highlights, occasionally with a sprinkling of diamonds. From L to R:  Full Moon Pendant, Celestial Pendant, Double Lily Pad Earrings, Dissolving Tear Drop Ring and Oxidised Spine Bangle, Spine Bangle and 14ct Gold Spine Bangle.

Shot of Vibrance

MONOCHROME LOVE

There is something striking about strong contrasts, they are visually appealing and draw the eye.  We have assembled a window into some of the pieces we have in store, it may be the contrast of semi precious stones like labradorite or rutile quartz or the interplay between sterling silver and oxidised sterling silver.   What we love about these pieces is that they will go with anything in your wardrobe.From L to R (clockwise): Victoria Bangles Sterling Silver and Oxidised by Priya Himatsingka, Caviar Labradorite and Freshwater Pearl Ring by Louise Douglas, Caviar Pendant by Louise Douglas, Silver Haze Bangle with Rutile semi precious stone and Keshi Pearl by Mary Odorcic, Sparkler Pendant by Priya Himatsingka, Midnight Peacock Ring by Priya Himatsingka, Sparkler Earrings by Priya Himatsingka.

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. 
The joy of this collection is that you can choose your gemstone, be it sapphire, ruby, or white diamonds.  You can choose yellow or white gold.  You can create an individual ring as in the ‘Single Polka Dot Ring’ (shown right) or the ‘Polka Dot Ring’ or as a stack ‘Stack Polka Dot Rings’.  Endless choice and lots of latitude to create something special for your hand.
