The founder of our Online Jewellery Store loves Australian jewellery designers. When Maria found out that we buy jewellery online from non-local stores, she stood up and yelled I am going to change that. You could say she did just that, achieving extraordinary wins within the first twelve months of business. Her objective was simple to promote and sell Australian Jewellery Designers online from one store.
Today we deep dive Nicole Fendel. Like us, she is located in Melbourne; she grew up in Perth, born in South Africa and moved to Melbourne in 2003. “I was looking for a bit of an adventure and looking for a bigger city with lots of cultures and design,” Nicole say about picking Melbourne as her new home town.
With a background is in interior architecture, she started making jewellery as a hobby. Her hobby soon enough became her business and nearly ten years later, she is one of Australia’s most successful jewellery designers and her brand is one of the most recognisable in Australian.
“As a Nicole Fendel stockist, I find I turn on the TV at least once a week and spot someone wearing her necklaces, signature earrings or those rings” My Jewellery Shop Online Founder Maria.Read More

I don’t know about you but I love the feeling of a pending holiday, packing my suitcase is always fun until I get to jewellery. What to leave behind? What to bring? How to pack it? So many questions
Our first tip doesn't leave your accessory plan to the last minute.
What Jewellery to bring on your holiday
No matter where you’re travelling or for how long, keep in mind a vacation is a break from daily routine. Our second tip is simple; don’t bring anything you’re going to worry about losing. I learnt this lesson young at the family beach house my aunt had come over from America and she gifted all us girls the most extraordinary solid gold ring, mine lasted almost two weeks. I was playing in the ocean as my fingers got water wrinkled it slipped off and even though we searched for hours it was never found. Safe to say it is best to leave items of great monetary or emotional value at home. Only bring them if they are a fundamental part of a specific trip.Read More

Tassels tend to be simple in style however you can wear them every day; it’s safe to say they are true classics. What I love best about this jewellery trend how the designers have interpreted and created truly timeless pieces that work well all year round.
We keep hearing that fashion today is a dose of minimalism, and it may be hard to believe but tassels also can fall into that style.
Modern Tassel Necklace
The Diana pearl lariat although not traditionally a tassel necklace this is perfect for the fashionista wanting to embrace this trend without stepping outside their fashion comfort zone
The Bold Tassel Necklace
Tassels traditionally get associated with bold and powerful statement pieces and the next piece is all that and more…
The JoJo tassel necklace is bright and bold it is the ultimate summer statement necklace and can be worn with confidence. Mind you after walking down the street with this stunner brace yourself for that Srtanger complement we all love.
When I told my Grandmother I was writing an article on tassel necklaces, she looked at me with a puzzled face. On further investigation I established to her, it was an association with living room curtains. Not the case anymore. Tassels have a long history; between Roman emperors and contemporary fashion designers, it is safe to say the life a tassel has evolved.Read More

When I was asked to write this blog, the first thing I thought of was my late grandmother. She had some astonishing jewellery which I will one day inherit. My mother and I have already established that.
I am going to start with some show-and-tell and share this piece with you. It a solid 18 carat gold chain that she had made for her engagement in the roaring 20’s. Back then we wore necklaces long. A few decades later she had it cut down and now her daughters both share in this family history.
My Grandmother's Engagement necklace
Jewellery is much more than sentimental made from shells, stone, bones precious metal and stone having survived from prehistoric times. It is likely; then it was worn to protect from the dangers of life or as a mark of status or rank.
Over time, metalworking techniques became more sophisticated and decoration more intricate. I love nothing more than hitting the flea markets every time I go to New York and look for that hidden gem. I always find the best vintage jewellery at those markets
In researching this, I discovered that gold, even though it was rare and a highly valued material, was buried with the dead so as to accompany its owner into the afterlife. Most of the archaeological jewellery comes from tombs
Let's head over to Ireland sometime before 1783; a collar was found in a bog in Shannongrove, Co. Limerick. We do not know what it was used for, probably a ceremonial collar. It appeared to have rested on the chest and was held in place by a chain.Read More

Street style is a fashion style that is considered to have emerged from the grassroots. It’s that head turning girl you see walking down the street. Associated with youth culture, and is most often seen in the main urban centres worldwide. You’ll find this girl on the streets of New York, London, Japan, Melbourne, Milan, or any capital city around the world. Mainstream fashion often adopts street fashion trends and as more designers emerge from the grass roots we have seen it hit us from both ends.
When we look back at history, we find that Hippies were the street style of the Bohemian era. Punk fashion was probably the biggest street style movement to date. In fact, all trends are in same way shape or form had street style influence.
Instagram dedicate a hashtag to street style with over 14 million posts; even dogs have embraced this trend with #streetstyledog having over 21- thousand posts.Read More

7 Tips on Buying Earrings to Wear at Work
By Lou Ella D'Amore
We have written on this topic before. We all know that dressing right in a professionally setting is an important part of achieving career success.
Presentation DOES count!
Earrings are one way that you can enjoy fashion in the workplace and still maintaining a professional appearance. We are going to give you a few tips on the right ones
There are some things women should keep in mind when looking for the perfect pair of earrings. We will show you how to maintain a professional and polished appearance.
1. Avoid Long Earrings
Don’t get me wrong I love the new thread earring that is in vogue right now, however, and it may not work in all environments. They can be distracting, to you, and for co-workers. Longer earrings are also dangerous in some professions.
Some larger earrings that dangle can also be loud. You know that jingle jangle noise whenever you move. A shorter pair of earrings is often best. This does not mean you are giving up bling at the office; the Madelyn is one of best sellers ($70.00) as it can be worn to work, for drink and dress up an evening dress too. A simple pearl or stud earring is also a good staple to wardrobe. Buy earrings that can transcend from office to playtime; they do exist.Read More
