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.

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.

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!

New Designer: Priya Himatsingka

We have just added several elegant and stylish works by Priya Himatsingka.  Priya has a very clean and minimalistic style to her collection, many a piece is accentuated with 18 or 22 carat gold, bi-metals and oxidised sterling silver.

Priya is based in Rhode Island, U.S.A., her background is from the vibrant, diverse and unforgettable country of India, these two cultural influences create a very unique aesthetic in her work and this equates to highly desirable pieces that you will fall in love with.

Of course the first thing that drew me to Priya’s collection was her bangles, she has an amazing range of pieces and she also does stunning precious gemstone bangles, similar to the Aurora bangle (pictured top left with freshwater pearls) but with sapphires, diamonds and rubies.  The bangles we have in store have a lovely sculptural aesthetic; it makes you want to touch and feel the finish.  They will work well stacked and with whatever you already may have on your arm…

Her pendants are glorious and I particularly love the sparkler pendant and earrings shown below – they are quite unusual in that they are fine silver wrapped in a tight coil, so when light hits them they have a lovely luminescence.  I have chosen one necklace from her range the Dew Drop Necklace, because of its ethereal lightness and it gives the appearance that that soft luminous rain drops have formed on the oxidised sterling silver links (model wears this piece in the image below).

Priya has many rings in her collection I have selected two of my favourites for Lobo Luxe, I love the peacock pattern and this is available in the oxidised sterling silver ring and 22ct gold bi-metal (gold fused to sterling silver) pendant and earrings.  The Laurel Wreath ring has already been popular with its organic leaf shape that when worn feels like a soft caress, this is available in sterling silver but you can special order this ring in 18ct gold.
