Gotta Have It
Ditch throwaway retail culture for something you'll keep forever. Oh dear *sigh*, I think that means we need to head straight to the fine jewellery counter.
In this new age of ethical consumerism, buying something that will last a lifetime rather than the buy, wear, throw away culture of the Nineties and Noughties is definitely where retail is heading – which is excellent justification for looking for a piece of fine jewellery to sparkle over Christmas.
Even better, you can keep your search local rather than travelling into London or up to Birmingham (yes, eco points too). This stunning necklace, ring and drop earrings set from Biagio The Jeweller is available in both Thame and Bicester stores, as well as online, and is brand new this month as part of Biagio’s Artistry Collection, a bespoke, fine jewellery line that’s chockful of stunning showpiece sparklers.
The finely-cut marquise aquamarines gemstones, surrounded by finely-cut diamonds and 18ct rose & white golds are designed to recall the soft pastel shades of the dawn sky (the collection isn’t called Rinascimento Aurora for nothing).
See the full collection and go save the earth in style.
