Nomination has released traditional Chinese Zodiac Charms in 2011. The Chinese Zodiac are Legends and mythology and also a big part of Chinese culture, especially in relation to the Chinese Zodiac. The 12 animals that appear on the Chinese Zodiac calendar include a rat, buffalo (ox), tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.
It’s an unusual combination of animals for sure, and their appearance on the Chinese Zodiac is the topic of countless legends and is deeply embedded in Chinese mythology.
The 12 animals or signs of the Chinese Zodiac are associated with a person’s birth year, and the animals repeat every 12 years.
Nick Hubbard is one of our favourite british designers here at HeBe Jewellery, and 2010 is an exciting year for Nick Hubbard collectors. New pieces include a fabulous Nick Hubbard Love Boat necklace with a silver cat sailing along on a little silver boat. 9ct gold heart and star details and a little swinging pendulum that rocks the boat back and forth. A beautiful moonstone adorns the top of the locket. On the back a little engraving of a compass to guide your way and the words 'calm seas and starry skies the moonlight shining bright'. Did you know moonstone is considered to be the travellers stone and offers protection on long journeys to the traveller. You also have to re-charge your moonstone by placing it in the window cill on a moon lit night.
Sex and The City 2 has been doing the rounds at the box office and diamonds still are a girls best friend. Big proposes to Carrie in the final scene with a whopping five carat black diamond set in white gold with around 80 round white pave diamonds. Bling, bling. It sure is a beauty. Perhaps there is only one thing that women love more than Sex and the City - diamonds. Okay chocolate too.
While filming the movie, the producers were looking for a black diamond ring to use for this special scene. The director Michael Patrick King saw the 5 carat black diamond ring and instantly chose it. The unique black diamond ring was chosen from over twenty other leading diamond rings.
If you fancy a black diamond ring without the million dollar price tag, have a look at our Giorgio Martello range of jewellery. Our Giorgio CZ Inset Silver Rings have all the bling for just £75!

Nomination make a rather nifty tool to make the assembly of Nomination bracelets a breeze. If you have ever tried to add charms to the bracelets and become frustrated (in can be a little fiddly at times fitting individual charms), the answer lies in their composable tool. Up until recently the tool was just available to retailers, but we have had so many requests for them, you can now buy one from our store. Better yet order a nomination bracelet and any 3 charms and we'll give you one free of charge!
So how does the tool work. There are four different prong attachments on the tool - one for smarty, tiny, classic and big. Each prong on the tool has a little flange that neatly inserts behind a link to push it open and hold it while you insert a new link or charm. It's as simple as that. The tool is labelled so you really can't go wrong. Once you've used it, you'll wonder how you ever managed without.

Here’s what you need to know in relation to carat, clarity, colour andcut.
This is the weight measurement. Larger diamonds are rare and thereforeexpensive so the price increases in relation to the weight.
Natural flaws occur as the diamond is being formed and the size, numberand visibility of such flaws will determine clarity. One thing to distinguishis whether flaws have been made during the cutting process or during naturalprocess. Characteristics such as scratches, air bubbles, cuts and other mineraldeposits occur during its natural formation, however, the fewer the flaws, themore brilliant the diamond.
The mineral composition of the stone serves to dictate the colour in adiamond. Most valuable are those of the colourless variety due to the fact theyallow greater light, making them the most brilliant. When observing its colour,examine the stone through the side of the pavilion (bottom of the stone) withthe diamond upside down in a white paper grading trough. From blue and red togreen and yellow, the depth of colour will make the diamond both rare andvaluable.
The cut says it all and the brilliance of the diamond is determined byit. The face of the diamond is known as its table and light will enter throughthis area and travel to its centre where it will refract off the sides and thenback through the face. In contrast, a poorly cut diamond will show lessbrilliance as the light is lost through the sides and base of the diamond.

As valentines day approaches, here's a poem by Robert Burns entitled Red, Red Rose to get you in the mood for love.
O my Luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June.
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.
As fair art though, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I,
And I will luve thee still, my Dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.
Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun,
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only Luve!
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!
