Calling all jewellery lovers! Not so long ago we introduced this gorgeous jewellery brand ChloBo and today we are bringing you a complete guide to ChloBo jewellery. ChloBo began back in 2005 when the founder, Chloe Moss, came back feeling inspired by her trips around the globe. Once she returned from her trip to Bali, she began crafting handmade bracelets, then selling them in 2006. Since then, the brand has seen extraordinary growth, starting as a small shop in Chester to now, begin sold in 170 different retailers.
Here is a look at an online campaign from the brand:

ChloBo’s jewellery collection shows off a number of different styles, from bohemian and edgy to glamorous and sophisticated, meaning that there is a style for everyone.
The jewellery crafted by ChloBo is adaptable as the individual pieces are often simplistic they can be worn to suit a minimalistic fashion trend or alternatively they can be stacked for a look that is bold and eyecatching. So if ChloBo sounds like a jewellery brand you would want in your jewellery box here is a complete guide to ChoBo jewellery.
If you are a fan of the celestial fashion trend that is taking over the watch and jewellery market currently then this is the bracelet for you. From their latest Splendid Star collection, this bracelet would look great as a finishing touch to a formal outfit, especially if you plan to take a midnight walk under the light of the moon. For a look that really stands out, we would recommend styling this bracelet with other jewellery pieces from the Splendid Star collection.
Two-tone is not for everyone, however, if you like jewellery that is adaptable then it is a style we would recommend. This bracelet is a stunning combination of rose gold and silver with a mandala sun charm. This bracelet will look good styled with other two-tone jewellery pieces from ChloBo’s collection particularly those that strive for a sleek and sophisticated style.
If you strive for an edgy, grunge style then this is the ring we would recommend to you. The main feature of this ring is, of course, the beaded cross charm. ChloBo is well known for their uniquely crafted rings which are not a single metal band but have more of a bracelet style. ChloBo rings are best worn when combined with other pieces of ChloBo jewellery, in this case, edgy silver jewellery.
If you like to make the most out of your jewellery box then we would recommend this cute duo which features a rose gold and silver combination. The good thing about these rings is that they can be stacked on the same finger or alternatively complement each other on different fingers. If you are looking for the finishing touch for your holiday attire this is the duo we would suggest.
For those that aim to be right on-trend, these earrings are calling out your name. One of the biggest fashion trends of this year is hoop earrings with pendants. These flower hoop earrings will compliment both your spring and summer wardrobe as well as any silver jewellery in your jewellery box. These earrings will dress up a casual everyday outfit and will also work as a finishing touch for a special occasion.
If your wardrobe consists of a bohemian style then these earrings might just take your fancy. They are sweet and simple styling a rose gold feather in a stud style earring. These would look good paired with other feather accessories also in a gorgeous rose gold-tone.
The ChloBo jewellery collection is clearly inspired by nature, this silver hummingbird necklace a beautiful representation of this. The hummingbird charm rests on a bead style necklace that is an iconic design created by the brand, meaning that it will be well-matched with other pieces from their various collections.
For those with a lust for glamour and sophistication, this is the necklace for you. This necklace will certainly make a fashion statement, especially if it is combined with other pearl accessories from the Splendid Star collection, new to ChoBo’s jewellery line this year. It will be well styled with formal attire and special occasions.

Recently we have been treated with a number of new releases from Swiss watchmakers, Alpina. From the Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage to the Alpina Alpiner Quartz Edition! These are some fantastic new models that have continued the trend of quality watchmaking from the brand. Taking a look in to the History of Alpina, we have always seen reliable, stylish and unique watches, that have consistently pleased fans of the brand.
The latest watch we are looking at comes from the popular Seastrong collection. A divers watch that has remained faithful to the distinctive design that has made the model so recognizable over the years. The Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 has kept the oversized case with strong lines, the luminous indexes and it’s uni-directional bezel too.
This watch arrives as part of the current heritage movement that Alpina are running, where they produce modernized interpretations of classic models. Directly inspired by one of the most iconic Alpina watches from the last century, in the form of the Seastrong ’10’ from the 1960’s. This model takes aesthetic inspiration from the classic 60’s version, but has been updated to suit modern day life.
At the time, the model was already capable of reaching depths of 200m/660ft and built to resist extreme conditions. For the Seastrong Diver ‘300’ this has now been increased by 100m, giving the watch water resistance up to 30 bar (300m). The watch also features a screw-down crown to offer an added security to sustain the timepieces high water-resistance while diving.
It is not only the water resistance that has been upgraded for this new model, but the case size has also been increased to 44mm, and is available in titanium of bronze PVD plating. This has been increased, following the trend of modern day watches, and their ever increasing case sizes!
The range has a choice of grey, black or navy bezels, and dark brown, grey or navy dials, depending on which model you decide to go for! The fore mentioned bezel is a unidirectional rotating bezel, a feature used for timing dives, and also a fantastic looking design cue too! These dial colours have been chosen as a high contrasting tone to the large, luminous indexes and hour markers!
The dial features do not end there. The iconic triangle that can be seen in the Alpina logo can be seen in the 12 o’clock hour marker, as a wink to the legendary logo! The dial is then completed with the addition of a date window at the 3 o’clock mark, which is a subtle, yet functional addition.
The watch arrives on one of the brands vintage leather straps, and also come with an additional rubber strap too, perfect for when you want to take the watch diving! This allows the watch to provide you with a perfect blend of everyday wear, and functional use too.
Baume & Mercier have over 188 years of experience in the world of watchmaking, which sines through in all of their collections today. Their dedication to perfection ensures that all watches are produced to the same high standards. Offering quality, alongside precision and reliability, it is clear why the German watchmakers have reached the heights that they have. Today, we are looking at the Baume & Mercier Classima Lady range. There is also a Classima collection for men too, however we will be looking at that a bit closer in the near future!
We recently showcased the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic range, which you can read more on here, but today’s focus is the Classima. The Classima is one of the flagships collections for Baume and Mercier, and holds some of the brand most popular, and iconic models. Continue reading below to take a look at just a handful of what’s available when it comes to Baume & Mercier Classima Lady watches!
One of the highlights of the Classima Lady collection has to be the BM0A10329 moon phase watch. An exquisitely designed timepiece, that comes with diamond set, and Roman numeral indices, as well as that moon phase complication too. All inside a 31mm stainless steel case, the dial is completed with a 6 o’clock date aperture too. The moon phase complication itself is definitely a draw to the dial, and is styled with stars and the lunar body, which is then set against a silver dial with a sun-satin finish.
The piece is completed by a glossy blue alligator strap, and the whole thing is powered by a highly accurate quartz movement.
Next up, is one of the higher priced items in the range, the BM0A10478. This £2,600 is warranted thanks to the stainless steel case that has been set with 48 brilliant cut diamonds! This diamond bezel gives the watch a fantastic shine, and provides the wearer with unlimited glamour and elegance.
The dial is finished with a mother of pearl effect, and features a date display window at the 3 o’clock. The piece is fitted with a stainless steel bracelet, which, as you will see, is a common style for the Classima Lady!
The BM0A10477 is one of the more simple, and timeless designs from the collection. With its stainless steel bracelet and case, it offers a perfect base for an everyday watch. The highlight of this piece, however, has to be it’s sun-satin finished blue dial.
The design of this watch showcases the the refined taste of the wearer, and offers a chic design that is still balanced, yet classy. This is the perfect model for any occasion!
A truly luxury piece, in the form of the BM0A10490. This is an extremely refined, and well-balanced piece, that is perfect for adding class to any outfit!
A quartz movement powers this watch, ensuring that it remains precise, and on time. A graceful dial with mother of pearl effect plays host to 9 brilliant cut diamonds for the hour markers. This is a fantastic touch, and keeps the watch smart, yet still luxury!
Similar to the blue-dialed model we looked at previously, the BM0A10489 has been created for those who don’t want their watch to show off too much, but to be appreciated as a smart, quality timepiece.
Roman numerals sit at 12 and 6, and the iconic date aperture remains at 3 o’clock, reflecting it’s understated elegance!
These are just a few of the models that we have on the site at the moment from the Classima Lady range.

For those with a passion for accessories that are floral, feminine and inspired by nature will love Olivia Burton. The brand started in 2011 after best friends Jemma and Lesa took the plunge and started their own watch and jewellery company. The inspiration for starting the brand came from a shared love of design as well as the desire to find a watch they wanted to wear. Jemma and Lesa met on their first day at university, both studying at the London College of Fashion. After graduation, both Jemma and Lesa went off to pursue successful careers in fashion, working for top brands such as ASOS, TopShop and Selfridges. However, the duo had other ideas when it came to their careers which started in 2011.
As they were both ex-fashion buyers with a passion for vintage style, they would often be found at antique markets, picking up beautiful vintage timepieces. Whilst these watches were undoubtedly beautiful, they often weren’t in working condition, giving Jemma and Lesa all the motivation they needed to create their own collection of vintage inspired timepieces.
They took the plunge and quit their jobs and began shaping the business of their dreams, which all started from the kitchen table. The brand was named ‘Olivia Burton’ after Lesa’s great aunt, who was a great inspiration for the girls with her high spirit and energy. Their first collection debuted in September on the 12th, this collection inspired by vintage fashion trends, straight from the runway.
Now, 7 years after their debut, Olivia Burton are still releasing beautiful, vintage-inspired watch and jewellery collections. As we are now official stockists of the brand we thought we would show you our favourite timepieces from there watch collections for those who aren’t already familiar with the brand.
The first timepiece comes from one of Olivia Burton’s recent collections, Under the Sea. The dial shows off this key theme in style with a blue and purple dial. The case and dial are silver stainless steel, suited to those who wish to combine this watch with other silver accessories within their wardrobe. The floral feminine edge that is iconic to the brand is also the centre of this design and is perfect for those wanting to add subtle colours to their attire.
The ‘We Love Bee’s’ collection is one of the most popular out of all the collections designed and crafted by Olivia Burton watches. This particular watch showcases the iconic bee design in the centre of the dial, surrounded by an overall simplistic style with the rest of the watch. The lilac leather strap is right on trend this season with lilac and lavender tones found throughout several other watch collections, inspired by the runways of the spring and summer fashion designs.
Unlike many other watch brands, Olivia Burton has not only catered for a watch market that desires vintage, floral and feminine timepieces. Olivia Burton has also included a collection of vegan watches. If you are vegan or are looking for a watch that is environmentally friendly then this vegan collection is aimed at you. This particular timepiece styles a nude strap combined with a black floral dial, we would recommend wearing this watch as a statement piece, combined with other nude accessories.
It is clear from our previous watch recommendations that Olivia Burton watches are inspired by nature and Woodland Bunny watch is no exception. Perfect for animal lovers, specifically those with a soft spot for rabbits, this watch combines a gorgeous black leather strap with a white dial, a bunny at the centre of the dial. If your lifestyle is adapted around your love for animals then you will be pleased to know that this watch is also vegan.
The fifth and final Oliva Burton timepiece we are recommending is this simple yet stylish black and rose gold watch. The dial of this watch is simple, showing off Roman numerals at the 12 and 6 o’clock mark in gorgeous rose gold. The bow found on the strap represents Olivia Burton’s vintage style well. This watch would look good styled with formal dresses, combined with rose gold jewellery for a completed and co-ordinated look.

We have previously visited the idea of vegan watches on our blog, especially from watch brands such as WeWood. However, with the brand Olivia Burton new to our stock we thought we would take a look at Olivia Burton’s Vegan Watches. If you have taken a look at our previous post on the history of Olivia Burton, you may already know that they are a floral, feminine and vintage watch brand that debuted their first watch collection back in 2012. Since then, Olivia Burton has become a very popular accessory brand, designing and creating numerous collections such as ‘We Love Bee’s’ and ‘Under the Sea’.
Veganism is a lifestyle that has become increasingly popular over the last two years especially. Not only are big restaurant chains embracing the lifestyle but clothing companies such as Dr. Martains and Killstar. Olivia Burton is an example of an accessory brand also embracing the lifestyle, not only are their timepieces inspired by the vintage fashion style but also inspired by nature. If you are taking on a vegan lifestyle and are also searching for the perfect accessory to compliment your attire then here are Olivia Burton’s Vegan Watches.
For those living a vegan lifestyle that also wants to be part of the recent fashion trends, this is the timepiece we would recommend to you. Powder blue is one of the on-trend colours this 2019 with other pastel colours. The powder blue strap is combined with a white dial with a blue floral pattern. This watch is smart and sophisticated and well suited to both casual and formal occasions. We would suggest combining this watch with other powder blue accessories within your wardrobe for a look that stands out.
If fashion is not a priority for you and you are rather looking for a timepiece that compliments your overall style then we have picked out timepieces designed with nature in mind. The overall colour scheme of the watch is neutral, styling a vegan leather strap with an all white dial. This means it is an adaptable accessory that can be worn with a number of different colours within your wardrobe. The dial of the watch is of course what stands out as it features a black and white bunny, designed with nature in mind.
This is an undoubtedly beautiful rose gold watch which will certainly catch the eye of friends and peers. It is the finer details that count, the crossover pattern on the dial is what caught our eye. This design allures a sleek and sophisticated individual looking for a fine accessory to complete their formal attire. As this watch is all rose gold, it would be well styled with other rose gold pieces of jewellery for a coordinated and stylish look.
The fourth and final vegan watch we sell by Olivia Burton is this dark floral watch. This watch displays overall neutral tones of black and nude which means it can be combined with a number of different looks within your wardrobe. As it comes with a vegan nude leather strap we think it would look good styled with other nude accessories such as bags, shoes, belts and more for a look that really stands out. As this is a watch that is highly adaptable it would also be suited to both formal occasions and casual days out.

It was only last week that we were talking about the brand new Alpina Alpiner Quartz Edition, which is available to purchase here now! But today we are looking at yet another brand new model from the brand. Throughout the History of Alpina watches, they have consistently produced fantastic timepieces. These latest models pay homage to this. Two new Alpina Seastrong diver heritage timepieces complete the introduction of the first re-interpretations.
Back in 1969, the first Alpina 10 Super Compressor diving watch was introduced. This model came fitted with two crowns, one for changing the time, and then another for adjusting the internal rotating bezel. This bezel was used to measure elapsed time through a 1-60 minute scale, a feature that made this a fantastic diving tool.
This original Alpina ‘Seastrong’ watch was also water resistant up to 200m (20 bar), and was anti-magnetic too. The model had an iconic case style, and was known as for this super-compressor characteristic.
To pay tribute to this historical collection, Alpina have launched the Seastrong Diver Heritage.
This latest model is much more than just a replica. According to Alpina, this is a modern interpretation of pure Swiss watchmaking. featuring classic aesthetics, and a corner stone to any vintage diver’s watch collections.
It is hard to disagree with Alpina, as this model retains the charm, and timeless design of the original, yet has been updated to suit modern day life. Rather than hoping the tried and tested formula would still work, Alpina have adjusted, and created a watch that has been resized, with new upgraded functionality too!
To suit modern living, the new Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage sits in a 42mm bronze colours PVD-plated stainless steel case. This case has only slightly been enlarged, as it looks to follow the trend of modern watches. Of course, we still see the double-crown design that makes this model so iconic, one at 2 and one at 4 o’clock. The top crown, used for adjusting the inner diving bezel has a grid-like pattern, with the lower crown being used for time adjustment.
This heritage model has also been upgraded when it comes to water resistance too. Boasting a 300m water resistance over it’s previous 200m, Alpina have made this an even more functional diving tool.
one of the most notable differences between the original, and the modern day interpretation is the movement inside the watch. The Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage comes fitted with an modified automatic movement. The base for this movement is the Selita SW 200, which has then been taken by the Alpina technicians and turnt in to the caliber AL-525 movement. This automatic movement is a 26 jewel, self-winding caliber, with a fantastic 38 hour power reserve, and 28,800/h frequency. This means that the internals of this watch are up to date with the best watches around, and helps to keep timekeeping precise and reliable at all times.
As I previously mentioned, there are in fact two new versions being released. Both are very similar, with minor differences for you to choose between! An elegant brown dial can be paired with either a brown or cream coloured rotating inner bezel, with brown or beige markers too. Both of these models come on slightly different shades of brown leather straps, and both feature a date window at 4 o’clock. The design is then completed with rose gold plated indexes and hands with white luminous treatment!
Overall, these latest Alpina watches show fantastic accuracy and a retro look making it a timeless everyday watch.
Thomas Sabo is now a global watch and jewellery brand that dates back to 1984. It all began with Thomas Sabo himself, the founder and his vision to create a wide range of detailed and diverse collections that are top of the trends in both the watch and jewellery market. For those that have a love for jewellery, specifically Thomas Sabo Jewellery, we have put together a comprehensive guide on the jewellery pieces designed and crafted by the brand.
Exciting news regarding Thomas Sabo came to light last week as they announced their new global brand ambassador last week, Rita Ora which you can read more about here.
Here is a glimpse at the new Thomas Sabo and Rita Ora Jewellery collection:
THOMAS SABO x RITA ORA - YouTube
The good thing about Thomas Sabo is that there is something for everyone with collections ranging from ‘Glam and Soul’ to ‘Rebel at Heart’. If you are looking for an intricate and glamorous piece to add to your jewellery box, here are our recommendations.
Thomas Sabo has been designing and creating charms since 2006 when they reached global success. As with their other jewellery pieces, their charms are all part of different collections, here are two charms from their recent collection.
If you like your jewellery box to be full of colour then this rose gold charm may just be the perfect fit for your style. There is something sleek and sexy about rose gold which is irresistible, especially when it is combined with other rose gold pieces. It is the coloured crystals on this royal heart charm that stand out ranging from a deep purple to red to pink, suited to those seeking a feminine finish to their charm bracelet and overall style.
Last year the mermaid fashion trend really took off with turquoise scales and mermaid clothing items galore. Thomas Sabo has represented the mermaid trend well, however, showing off their own unique style. The charm is overall a sterling silver but it is the multi-coloured feature on the tail that really stands out. Thomas Sabo has mixed shades of pink, blue and green for a charm that will certainly catch the eye.
Pendants are an underrated accessory, however, when styled correctly can be a useful weapon from within your jewellery box. As pendants typically attach to a simple chain, in a colour of your choosing, you can pick a pendant that suits your daily attire, meaning pendants are highly adaptable pieces of jewellery. Here are two Thomas Sabo pendants from the brand recent collections.
This is a gorgeous and luxurious pendant that will certainly catch the eye. It comes in an overall sterling silver combined with pink, blue and green crystals across the branches of the trees. This pendant shows relations to Thomas Sabo’s Karma collection with one of their watches also featuring the beautiful tree of life. This statement pendant would look gorgeous styled with other pieces of sterling silver jewellery, especially if matched with its pink, green and blue colour combination.
The second pendant that we have picked out shows off more of a celestial style. Celestial styled jewellery is very popular across both the watch and jewellery market at the moment, therefore, this pendant will add a trendy touch to your overall attire. This sterling silver pendant shows the phases of the moon and is well suited to those that strive for an edgy and sophisticated fashion style.
If you are looking for new ways to spice up your everyday outfits then we would recommend adding a ring to your daily attire. Thomas Sabo has a vast collection of rings in a range of different styles meaning that there is something for everyone.
This is an oriental and eye-catching ring that is aimed at those that love to incorporate rich colours into their jewellery box. It combined a base of rose gold with red and white crystals along the band of the ring. This ring has been intricately designed by Thomas Sabo and is suited to those that strive for a sleek and sophisticated style.
Our second choice for a Thomas Sabo ring has more of a simple style yet it is still eye-catching with the white crystals along the band. This ring is well suited to those that consider themselves to have an edgy or alternative style with the cross in the centre of the ring. We would recommend styling this ring with other silver accessories which are crystal set for a look that stands out from the crowd.
Thomas Sabo has been making bracelets since the brand began back in 1984. They have several different collections including Little Secrets which was a collection not long released that featured only bracelets.
In 2017, Thomas Sabo released a collection of bracelets called ‘Little Secrets’ which are thin rope bracelets with a charm on them. Each bracelet is different a aims to signify the wishes of the wearer. This particular bracelet is simple in style with a black rope and silver charm. These bracelets are perfect for stacking and are especially good for gifts among friends.
Our second bracelet recommendation from the Thomas Sabo Jewellery collection features a golden bee on a golden bracelet. If you like jewellery that is inspired by nature then this bracelet has been designed with you in mind. This is an eye-catching bracelet that would look beautiful styled with other pieces of gold jewellery or alternatively worn as a statement piece.
Necklaces are a piece of jewellery that can complete a look which is why they are so useful to have in your jewellery box. We have picked out two different necklaces from the vast collections created by Thomas Sabo.
This necklace would be perfect worn as a statement piece. It will certainly draw attention to your persona and help you stand out from the crowd. This necklace combines a beautiful array of spring and summer colours such as pink, amber and turquoise. We would recommend styling this piece with other accessories of the same colour for a look that is coordinated and stylish.
This silver and turquoise necklace is bright and bold, suited to those that like to make a fashion statement with their attire. The good thing about this necklace is that there is a range of other pieces within Thomas Sabo’s Jewellery collection that match meaning you can create a stylish coordinated look. We think that this necklace would look hot on holiday, on a beach by the waves.
Earrings are one of the most notable pieces of jewellery that you can wear, as the right pair of earrings can draw attention to your eyes as well as accentuate your features. Here is a glimpse at some pairs of Thomas Sabo earrings.
These earrings are both gorgeous and unique, styling a sterling silver stud with a dark blue stone in the middle. These earrings would look good styled with other dark blue accessories for a look that is both bold and coordinated. We think that these earrings would be good for everyday wear but also would dress up a formal outfit, overall an adaptable pair of earrings.
There is something about having a pair of hoops in your jewellery box that seems essential. They are the perfect accessory if you want to dress up your casual daily attire and are also suitable for occasions more formal. As hoops are a simple, understated piece of jewellery they can be combined with other silver accessories with ease.

The Latest from Swiss watchmakers, Certina, is the DS PH200M. This Certina DS model provides a timeless piece. With all the modern advancements that we have come to expect from the brand. Part of Certina’s Vintage range, the DS PH200M has draw inspiration from many different directions. One of the main inspirations is the Swinging Sixties, for it’s style at least! The technology for this watch is the most up to date from Certina, and is certainly from the modern day! Its robust design and quality workmanship makes this watch the perfect companion for all the challenges that life sends your way.
The predecessor, and inspiration for the DS PH200M comes all the way from 1967. Today’s version stays true to the original when it comes to design too, with many features remaining the same. The black dial, with red accent features, as well as the black unidirectional graduated bezel. Not to forget the turtle embossed in relief on the case back too. Which has become a classic feature that fans love about Certina watches!
However, the Certina DS PH200M has been revamped for modern life. It’s Super-LumiNova coated hands and indices, as well as the 42.8mm diameter shows that this watch is undoubtedly set in the here and now. This is before we even take a look inside the PH200M. This is where we will find the innovative Powermatic 80 Automatic movement. The Powermatic 80 that comes with an 80 hour reserve, to keep you going at all times.
Another fantastic new feature about this model is the strap options. You can either purchase this with a Milanese stainless steel mesh strap (C0364071105000). Or a classic brown leather strap too (C0364071605000)! Both models come as a set along with a blue/grey NATO strap too, just to offer a level of personalisation and choice! If this isn’t enough, the watch also comes fitted with a quick change system. Allowing you to put any style of strap that you want on, without needing any tools at all!
Similarly to it’s 60’s predecessor, the new DS PH200M pulls inspiration from the original DS concept, that we have come to know and love! This watch still stands out from all other current models, as unlike modern Certina watches, this piece features a hesalite edge-domed crystal glass, with a resistant NEX Scratchguard coating along with a separate mounting ring. this mounting ring ensures double security and water resistance up to 200m (20 bar). The new DS PH200M proves itself a worthy and stylish successor to the 1967 original.
