  • Crossing the Line; 2018’s Spring / Summer Trends

    What do Napoleon’s throne, your great grandmother’s curtains, and 2018’s most prominent jewellery trends have in common?

    Tassels; vibrant, varied, and vivacious, these playful accessories have brightened the jewellery scene.  Historically thought to be protective and often used as status symbols and fashion accessories, tassels have spent centuries evolving.  In today’s styles you’ll see them adorning bags, clothing, and jewellery.

    But really, tassels are a small part of a much bigger wave of trends.  You’ll be seeing plenty of statement jewellery from chunky jewelled necklaces to chandelier earrings.  Many of these trends reference styles that are actually quite ancient, blending and acknowledging cultures that don’t often get recognition in the same light we’re currently seeing them in.

    Another statement earring we’re seeing is hoops.  Most of us are familiar with them, and many remember them from the 1970’s, but Latinx and black communities have been rocking them for decades.  They are too prominent in these communities to be considered a 'trend'.  Hoop earrings dating back to 2500 BC have been discovered, so the design itself is definitely nothing new.  They have always held cultural significance, and outside of their current trend status they have oftentimes been looked down on by people who misunderstand that significance.

    We’re also seeing bohemian jewellery maintaining its place as a staple favourite for Spring and Summer styles.  BoHo fashion has its deepest inspirational roots in the designs of Eastern European travellers and refugees and the Roma people, with added elements of the 1960’s hippy styles and Asian influences.

    We love BoHo looks because they’re romantic and grounding, ideal for expressing our spiritual sides.  Chlobo is a great option if you’re looking for high quality Bohemian and tasselled pieces.




    There is an increase in masculine jewellery, with more men branching out of simply styling with watches to accessorising with necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.  Thomas Sabo, Steff, and Gucci have a fantastic selection of men’s jewellery.  Sculptural and layered pieces give a touch of unique personality to any ensemble.

    The bottom line for 2018’s Spring / Summer styles is expression and inclusiveness.  Jewellery and fashion has always been about expressing ourselves, but the coming trends are breaking boundaries and welcoming the presence of new influences.  We live in a world where Western culture no longer dominates, where every continent is connected, and where we can see into the lives of people thousands of miles apart.  The unique elements of cultures that are worlds apart from our own is coming into a renewed appreciation, and every culture has something beautiful and profound to contribute to the world of fashion and jewellery.

    With this recognition of cultures comes respect, and with that respect comes concern for the actual people involved in the production of fashion.  Ethically sourced fashion and jewellery pieces are increasingly in the spotlight with the growing perspective that if the creation of something has caused harm to anyone, it simply is not beautiful.  We’re seeing an increased effort to reach out a hand to help other people and take care of our world.  Olivia Burton is a great example, as they are beginning to produce vegan and eco friendly watches.  Also, keep an eye on our Steff brand for an upcoming opportunity to help us make a positive impact on our world!

    2018’s trends are colourful, fun, and impactful.  Whatever your personal style, you’ll find something that brings new life to your wardrobe this year.

  • Gifting for Mum

    We’ve all been there.  Dinner is at four, & it’s currently 3:45 as we sit in the car, scribbling the first kind thought that we can think of into a card.  If we’re feeling ambitious, we might grab a bouquet of flowers as we pay for our petrol at the till.

    It often feels like a mad rush to find our mums the perfect gift.  With everything our mums do for us does this show of appreciation always have to be curtailed into one day every year?  The team at Steffans Jewellers don’t think so.  With Mother’s Day coming around again this weekend, the team at one of the UK’s oldest family-run jewellers have run an interesting Mother’s Day poll to truly understand just how much our mums mean to us & how often we show our love with gifts.

    The survey showed that 74.5%, an overwhelming majority, focuses on trying to show their love & appreciation year-round rather than on Mother’s Day alone.  This made for interesting reading as the UK is known for showering our mums with gifts on this one special day.  The fact that buying habits are shifting to a continuous show of affection goes to show how much these special ladies in our lives really matter.

    In terms of what you’re looking to buy, results showed that whilst we show our love throughout the year with regular gifts, on Mother’s Day the UK mainly expresses their love with smaller presents.

    From the Steffans poll, there was a clear majority that went easy on gift giving because of regular gifting, with 85.4% spending less than £75 on mum for the day. Of course, not everyone’s habits are so lean, with 14.6% spending £75 or more, with a handful even opting for a weekend of retreat or spa day for their mums.

    Although spending is mainly on flowers with 44.8% choosing a simple bouquet, a large proportion of those surveyed (24.8%) stated that they’d rather buy their mothers a piece of jewellery, as it can be a lifelong reminder of love, lasting more than just a couple of days.

    However, when it comes to the main point, Mother’s Day is more than an opportunity to buy something; Mother’s Day is about connecting with our mums.  On the big day most choose to celebrate with a family meal out (40%) or a home cooked meal in (42.8%), showing that time together is still vital no matter where it is.

    As we grow older & into our own lives, we can neglect to let our mothers know how appreciated they are.  Days like Mother’s Day are great reminders & challenges.  To truly know how to communicate affection & appreciation, we need to have a connection.

    Showing our mums what they mean to us is more important than ever.  Out of everyone Steffans polled there was an overwhelming agreement that we are most proud of the way our mum show love to us no matter what life brings.  These results paint a beautiful picture of how we see our mums & appreciate them not just for what they do, but for how they love.

    Our mums are spectacular, beautiful, & worthy of our acknowledgement.  Steffans is always available to assist with finding an exceptional gift.  With free engraving services you can add an everlasting, personal touch that will be a reminder of affections, even during the seasons when life gets a little too busy for a phone call.

  • Where You Go I Go

    There are few accomplishments quite as impressive as bringing life into the world.  Since March is Women’s History Month & we’re celebrating Mother’s Day on the 11th, we’re taking a moment to appreciate mothers who’ve changed the world.

    The most obvious examples that come to mind are all the brilliant mothers in the royal family such as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, & of course Queen Elizabeth herself.  We’ve all seen images of Kate squatting down at eye level to speak to her children while wearing heels, a skirt, & never looking anything less than elegant.  Diana worked with charities, even going so far as to help remove active land mines from fields in Angola.  The UK has also produced Zadie Smith & JK Rowling, who both wrote bestselling novels with babies on their laps.

    Audrey Hepburn was a mother with a wildly successful career who spent much of her time as a UNICEF ambassador.  A single, low-income mother raised Oprah.  Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize, the first person to win two Nobel Peace Prizes, & raised a daughter who went on to earn a Peace Prize of her own.  Viviana Torun created jewellery that celebrated the strength & independence of women that was crafted with such timeless quality we proudly feature her collections in our shop to this day.

    Women accomplish amazing things all the time.  Most of our own mothers will probably never publish a novel, win an internationally known prize, or pick mines out of fields, but that doesn’t make them any less incredible.  March gives us the perfect opportunity to honour & be inspired by the women around us.

    With mothers especially it can be easy to get wrapped up in our own day to day lives & forget to tell them how appreciated they are.  None of us will ever know the work & sacrifices they made to give us life, so don’t forget to take a bit of time to make your mum feel special & treasured!

    Our mothers mould us into who we are.  If we look closely, we carry parts of our mothers with us; it could be her strength & stubbornness, how she shows kindness, or even the colour of her eyes.  In these ways our mothers are always with us, whatever our lives bring.  Finding the perfect way to express our love & gratitude can be tricky, & we need to listen & pay attention to our mums to find out the specific things that make them feel most loved.

    Flowers, chocolate, & Mother’s Day cards are easy to come by, & getting an old fashioned letter makes anyone feel special!  Gifts can be trickier to choose, but of course we find that jewellery works wonderfully.  A Thomas Sabo bracelet with a ‘Best Mum’ charm or a Clogau Tree of Life pendant is a great reminder of your affections she can wear anytime. We also have an exclusive Mother's Day bracelet from ChloBo that our very own ChloBo Ambassador, Zoe, has designed. It has been created with beautifully radiant Sterling Silver and 18ct Rose Gold plating with a delicate Sterling Silver Clover Charm. Have a look at it's gorgeous design below.




    Feel free to participate in our Mother’s Day poll & tell us how you are sending your mum love!  We hope you have a fantastic March & an enjoyable Mother’s Day.  Consider this your formal reminder to call your mother.

  • More than Words

    Our Valentine’s Day rush has already started, and we love the opportunity to help people find the perfect gift.  We adore hearing about your stories and connections, and in the midst of the declarations of love and romantic gestures, it’s difficult to miss the incredible number of ways the people around us show love and affection.  There’s the simple, straightforward “I love / like you”, but it’s not often that simple, is it?  Don’t get me wrong, it’s really great when you can be that straightforward with those you care about, but for just a moment we’re going to explore the ways people show and hear love.

    The prime example around Valentine’s Day is gift giving.  While a lot of traditions have shifted through the ages, we still spend hours or days finding the gift that perfectly communicates how we feel, sometimes spending quite a bit to put weight behind the sentiment.  We drudge up every memory we have of that person; what are their favourite things?  What are their treasures, and how can I add one more that will make them think of me?

    Yet, gifts aren’t always the best answer.  Sometimes what’s truly the best expression is a romantic evening, a well written card, or quietly doing the dishes so they can have a moment to put their feet up.  Often the most enjoyable moments you can spend together involve food, whether you’re treating them to a great restaurant or you’ve cooked something special yourself.

    It all comes down to making the effort to know the people you love.  We’re all celebrating somebody this Valentine’s Day, be it a significant other, our friends, or ourselves.  While gifts don’t always make the day, at Steffans we’re here to help you find the perfect one to add to it.  Feel free to browse our Valentine’s Day page and send us any questions you might have.

    We have all our hearts on display.  From Steff to Shaun Leane, there is an abundance of pieces that would captivate your Valentine.  We have the Gucci Toggle Heart Bracelet and Shaun Leane’s signature Heart necklaces.  From our Steff range, when you choose the Diamond Angel Wing we will include a sterling silver chain and a rose gold plated heart.

    During the next few months we will be looking at the ways we show love and affection that are more than words.  There will be competitions, quizzes, and plenty of opportunity to share your thoughts with us.  We want to know what makes your Valentine’s Day, and every other special day, extra special.

    We look forward to helping you find your ideal gift and wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day!

  • Our Finger on the Pulse

    This week our Director of Sales, Wesley Suter attended the Vicenzaoro Jewellery Boutique Show at the Vicenza Exhibition Centre in Vicenza, Italy. Vicenzaoro is a leading international gold & jewellery show featuring suppliers, manufacturers, & 1500 brands from 30 countries. Looking around you’ll find some of the world’s leading trend experts, opinion leaders, & Steffans.

    Wesley flew into Venice as the sun rose on Monday January 22nd & walked from a sleepy train station into a bustling sea of glittering & innovative design. Searching for the most inspired, stunning creations for 2018, he met with suppliers & perused an astounding number of collections & displays. His main goal was to find the jewellery that most effectively captured the spirit & aesthetic of our own clientele.

    Taking all of Vicenzaoro into account, Wes’ main trend forecast is colour; expect to see a lot more vibrancy in 2018’s new collections! Along with colour he discovered gold was prevalent in many of the show’s most promising designs. Wesley met with several of Steffans’ brand suppliers, & Thomas Sabo was particularly inspiring going into this year of Technicolor styles.

    Our goal in attending shows such as Vicenzaoro is to ensure we are stocking only the finest & most relevant jewellery pieces for you, from high end to high street brands. After more than 40 years in the jewellery industry, we know how to work with fellow experts to source the highest quality & value jewellery stock.

    Vicenzaoro features some of the most cutting edge ideas in the jewellery world & serves as an invaluable reference point for the entire jewellery industry. Shows like this help us keep a finger on the pulse of the future of jewellery.

    The Vicenzaoro Jewellery Boutique Show will go on to feature in Hong Kong, Las Vegas, & Dubai throughout 2018. Steffans is pleased to have had the chance to attend the first leg of the tour, & will always grasp the first opportunity to find only the best cutting edge pieces for you to choose from.

    The jewellery world is always evolving; techniques are developed & new designers emerge with ideas we could only dream about years before. The opportunity for the jewellery industry as a whole to increase its global positive impact is growing with the welcome challenge of a newly intensified focus on conflict free & ethically sourced materials.

    We will be featuring the finest & most accessible pieces in our store, so keep a close eye on this year’s new collections. We are delighted to help you find your place in today’s styles, whether your tastes are on the trendy side or if you prefer the elegant classics.

    The Vicenzaoro Jewellery Boutique Show is a sight to behold. Between exploring the vastness of Vicenzaoro & the quiet beauty of Venice itself, Wesley wants to bring all the beauty, all the promise of possibility the future of jewellery contains back to Steffans.

    There will always be something new glittering on the horizon & it is our joy to bring that horizon to you.
