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!.

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.

Christmas Catalog

It is always a delight to highlight some beautiful, striking and unique pieces for the Christmas Catalog. With so many appealing pieces it is hard to choose; so many worthy contenders — we will be definitely putting together a few more catalogs!

We hope you enjoy this hand picked selection, please click the image to find out more, enjoy!

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. 
To view the rings in the collection please click the following links: ‘Single Polka Dot Ring’ , ‘Polka Dot Ring’ , ‘Stack Polka Dot Rings’

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!

Jewellery clockwise (from top L): Image Earrings with Red Sapphires by Caroline Bassett; Past Tense (double sided) Pendant by Shauna Mayben; Aurora Bangle by Priya Himatsingka; Soraya Ring by Katie Diamond.
