We’re very excited to introduce the newest member of the Becky Rowe team – Emma Gavet-Le Tissier.
Emma joined the team in October and has brought with her a huge amount of talent as well as a fantastic work ethos. She is a qualified jeweler and has had a few years away from the industry to raise her two beautiful children.
Emma is now back at the bench and assisting Becky in the workshop and we’re thrilled to have her as part of the team.
As we welcome one new team member we also sadly say goodbye to another. Sarah Froome has been with Becky Rowe Jewellery since we opened our new St Martins shop in October 2015, but she has now left us to travel around South America (and we can’t say we blame her as her trip sounds amazing!)
Sarah is a very talented photographer and you can see some of her beautiful travel photography on her blog www.islandgirlabroad.com.
Enjoy your travels Sarah – we will miss you!
You may not be aware, but for clients wanting to create bespoke items of jewellery, we also offer customers the opportunity to see exactly what the item will look like before it’s created. This is done via our CAD service which is becoming increasingly popular
Many people come to Becky Rowe with an idea of an item of jewellery that they would like to create – often something personal and special. They discuss the idea with Becky, which is then created on CAD for customers to see exactly what the creation will look like, and it also enables alterations before the item is made.
Below is an example of 2 stunning bespoke rings that Becky recently made. The CAD images are a perfect representation of the completed items.
If you would like help in producing a bespoke item of jewellery, pop in and see us at the store or get in touch by calling 01481 233266 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to helping you transform your ideas into beautiful pieces of jewellery.
We’ve had so many people come into the store recently to buy Christmas presents who have commented that they didn’t know we also had a homeware collection – so we thought we’d put together another Christmas gift guide, but this time with a homeware focus!
So here’s a few ideas for those of you looking for Christmas present inspiration. These homeware items make great gifts for people of all ages, and both men and women.
Let there be light
This beautiful candleabra would make a stunning centrepiece for a Christmas dinner table display. Its simple elegance means it would complement a variety of décor styles. It looks great on its own, holding two candles, but two candelabras can be joined together to form a four-candle piece if you’re looking for a larger item.
Delightful on Display
Double Loop Bowl £25
This stylish double nibbles bowl is also great for keeping trinkets in, for using as a vase for small flowers, or even for keeping items of jewellery in. The opportunities are endless and its versatility means whoever you gift it to is bound to be able to find their own use for it and make it their own.
Food & Drink
Oil & Vinegar £30
The perfect gift for someone who loves to have a well presented dinner table. This gorgeous oil and vinegar duo will bring a touch of class to any meal time and will banish the large supermarket oil and vinegar bottles to the cupboard where they belong!
Carrol Boyes Bottle Stop £22
Bottle stops can be plain and boring, or they can be transformed into beautiful works of art, and this Carrol Boyes bottle stop definitely falls into the latter category. This stunning piece is an ideal gift for the bubbles lover in your life. It may even give them an incentive not to finish the bottle!
Carrol Boyes Chip & Dip £255
A great gift for someone who enjoys entertaining. Give their guests something to talk about as they enjoy their chips and dips from this beautiful aluminium set of bowls.
Carrol Boyes Cheese Knives £62
These pewter and stainless steel knives are sure to be a hit with any cheese lover. Not only are they functional but they look fantastic. Make sure you give this present early on during Christmas day so the knives can have their first outing with the after dinner cheeses.
Jollie Socks £13
These socks don’t only look great, but for every pair bought Jollie Socks donate a pair of hardy socks to a homeless charity – ‘Wear a pair, share a pair’. The socks are ethically sourced and come in a recyclable tin can. A great secret santa present, or stocking filler.
Pooley tube vases £24
A fun and colourful set of vases, great for displaying a variety of single stem flowers. Why have one vase when you can have eight in a variety of colours?! These vases will bring a vibrant burst to any room.
Hudson 4 Sputnik £12
This space-age style vase would make a great gift for someone who keeps their décor minimalistic. The spherical glass bud vase with spiky points looks great with a vibrant flower bud – whether it’s real or artificial.
Hudson 2 hole flute £10
This low-profile glass vase is perfect for displaying short-stemmed flowers. It sits low on the table which means it doesn’t block anyone’s view. It makes a great gift for someone who enjoys collecting flowers from the garden.
Teal & Silver Cubes £7
A ceramic cube-shaped vase in a gorgeous teal or silver colour. These little cubes look great on their own in a corner or on a shelf, or can be used as multiples to create a stunning centerpiece. Perfect for single stem flower displays. A great stocking filler or secret santa present.
There’s no escaping it any longer, Christmas really is just around the corner! To help you get through the next few weeks of panic over what to buy your nearest and dearest for Christmas we’ve put together a handy Becky Rowe Christmas gift guide. There’s something for everyone so take a browse through our guide and tick those names off your list!
Guardian Angel Key Ring £28
A great gift for young and old. This cute little pewter angel will watch over their keys.
Dannii Bear Memo Holder £40
Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous little pewter bear to hold their memos or photos for them?! It would look great on a desk at work or on a sideboard at home. Dannii Bear was commissioned for the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation’s 10th Anniversry, and a percentage of the sale of each of these bears goes directly to the charity.
Something for him
Men’s Beaten Bangle and Chain, from £89
Bring a touch of class to the wardrobe of the man in your life with this textured bangle. The beaten bangle contrasts beautifully with the chain. It’s available in polished or oxidized sterling silver, 9ct yellow gold and 9ct rose gold. The oxidized silver is an especially popular choice for men, but this item is actually unisex and very popular with ladies too, particularly the rose gold option.
For a Christmas she won’t forget
Large Open Heart Necklace £120
Make it clear that your heart is all hers with this beautiful heart necklace set with a white cubic zirconia stone. A beautifully simple and elegant piece of jewellery which is available on either a wire or chain. If you’re looking for an item that can be worn a lot this is a great choice as it looks fantastic with both smart and casual outfits and is sure to become a firm favourite.
R1 Sleek Silver Contrast Bangle £175
A gorgeous bangle that will bring a modern and sleek touch to any outfit. The polished silver outer contrasts beautifully with the deep oxidized silver channel that houses a 4mm round white cubic zirconia stone. A Christmas gift with a touch of class!
A gift for the home
Scented candles £26
Bring a warm glow and a gorgeous aroma to any home with a 100% natural Becky Rowe Jewellery scented candle. Available in Black Diamond, Ocean Sapphire, Pure Platinum and Silver Spices, these luxury candles burn for 45 hours. They come in a beautiful gift box so make an ideal present.
For the tech savvy
iPhone case £18
A great gift for someone who is never separated from their phone (and we all have a few of those people in our lives!) is a Becky Rowe iPhone case. The leather case is available for iPhones 5, 6 and 7 and all come with a Becky Rowe Angel logo button, various colours available.
Wrap Around And Claw Engagement And Wedding Ring Set – Price depends on metal chosen as well as stone size
Christmas is one of the most romantic times of the year so it’s no surprise that it’s a popular time for engagements. This stunning engagement ring, boasting a 1ct round brilliant cut diamond, is the perfect ring to pop the question with, and it’s timeless elegance will look great for years to come. The wedding ring is the perfect accompaniment and fits perfectly around the engagement ring. They are available as a set or individually.
Start a collection
Charms – Price varies
Make your life easier and buy something you can add to with gifts over time. A charm bracelet is a great present as you and others can add to it over the years, and the wearer gets many years of enjoyment from a gift that changes with each new addition. Becky Rowe has a fantastic collection of charms including guardian angels, tiny feet, stars, hearts, and even pelicans, penguins, giraffes and ducks! Most of the charms can also be worn on a necklace too.
If you don’t know whether to go gold or silver
Stacker rings - price varies depending on design and stone options
Stacker rings are on-trend and allow the wearer to customize their look, and even change it on a daily basis. They are also a great compromise when you don’t know whether to give someone gold or silver, as with stacker rings you can give both!
Beaten Bangle (3mm), from £71
These delicate bangles are available in polished or oxidized sterling silver, 9ct yellow gold and 9ct rose gold. They look great on their own, but even better when a few of them are worn together. Mixing gold and silver looks fantastic and is most definitely encouraged!
As unique and special as they are – Bespoke gifts
Becky Rowe offers a great range of items available in-store but Becky also loves working on bespoke items as well. If you have a particular item in mind, or even just a vague idea of the type of jewellery you would like to give as a present, then pop into the store, or give us a call, and we will help you to create a gift that is as unique and as special as the person you are giving it to.
‘Blue Lapis’ is a 9ct yellow gold, silver, lapis and diamond pendant on a yellow gold wire that was created as a bespoke commission.
A huge thanks to Flybe for the great feature on Becky Rowe Jewellery in the latest edition of their ‘Flight Time’ magazine. It’s always nice to read positive things about ourselves in print. :-)
