January 17th, 2013 — Toe Rings
It’s strange. I look out the window and I see white everywhere; snow is thick on the ground, cobwebs are full of frost and, basically, it’s cold out there.
So it’s nice to see orders for toe rings coming in as I can only assume that people are going away on holiday and eagerly thinking about a little bit (a lot?) of sun and sorting out their wardrobe accordingly. We certainly see many more toe rings sold in the spring / summer times (only expected) but I must admit that I was surprised to see just how many people buy them in the middle of winter. Perhaps it’s people who are highly organised and are preparing for the warmer weather and longer days.
Who knows. I only know that we have a great range of many different styles all of which are in stock and can be sent out straight away!
All the best and keep those tootsies warm.

We are in the process of updating our children’s jewellery range at the moment and we are stocking with a nice supplier of ours – Gemma J.
They are a fairly new range of pieces and they have what they call “pebble necklaces” – attractive little stones on a 14 inch silver curb chain and all have designs on them. The most popular designs, I’ve found, are the birthstones pebbles. Each month has a gemstone dedicated to it so if, for example, the little girl was born in February she would have the amethyst birthday pebble necklace.
There are also a number of bright designs – coloured enamel set in the silver of the pendant – and they are certainly eye catching. Take a look at an example and you’ll see what I mean – they’re pretty and make a perfect gift.
You can have it giftwrapped, if you wish and remember each of the Gemma J necklaces come with a silver chain and are presented in a pretty little pink pouch.

Take a look at our new category on Milton Gems – ankle chains.
We recently put on a selection of toe rings so thought that it would be good to complement the range with more foot jewellery so we put on the anklets.
We have two main types – there’s the ankle bracelets that are silver and often with coloured crystal and these are the more standard types. Then we have the cord ankle chains with silver rings on them. These are almost like friendship bracelets and are proving very popular at the moment.
The prices are very sensible especially when you take into account what you are getting and will make a perfect addition to your holiday or warm weather jewellery collection.
I hope you like them – let us know what you think.

The key boards at Milton Gems have been working overtime just lately – a great deal of silver jewellery items have already been put onto the already well received variety that was here currently.
Noted for the stunning ranges for women and youngsters, Milton Gems has decided to proceed down this road and a bigger choice is waiting for internet customers who take pleasure in classy jewellery at internet prices.
A range which has been updated that we’re pleased with is definitely the pearl jewellery range – lovely pieces of silver set with pearls and in some cases other materials such as cubic zirconia makes this range a classic and ageless addition to your jewellery box. Categorised for simple surfing, you can see either the full collection or browse into the earrings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets categories.
A number of brand new categories were also added in – toe rings and ankle chains. Some may think it is odd to add these summer collections when it is pretty much winter but we believed it can be nice to get a selection in case you are off on a break and wish to add a little zing for your toes / ankles then the opportunity is there. A locket category has been added – those beautiful little pendants which are hinged so that you can open them up and place inside a small picture or lock of hair whilst keeping it near to you always. Perhaps the most romantic gift you’ll be able to give somebody.
What are we doing very soon? Well, we are going to boost several of the categories. One example is, the silver bracelets are popular so i feel that some more could be good to add that little extra choice for our customers. There are a few excellent pieces from our suppliers and they will go on in the next few days so keep posted.
October 22nd, 2012 — Jewellery information
We’ve put in another category into Milton Gems.
Sure, silver toe rings are normally associated with the summer but quite often they’re purchased for holidays so we decided we’d put up a nice range.
All are adjustable to fit anyones toe and no, the image here is NOT to scale!
We’ve selected a nice range from plain / simple toerings (as pictured) to ones with flowers, animals, coloured stones and more.
October 19th, 2012 — Marcasite Jewellery
We have been busy with marcasite items recently – not only have we added a new category (see previous post regarding marcasite rings) but we’ve had a general update with the marcasite jewellery category.
The previous range was nice but we’ve almost trebled the amount of items available so you have got a bigger choice of this delightful gemstone!
Take a look and see what you think – if you have any comments feel free to leave them and we’ll answer as well as we can!
October 15th, 2012 — Marcasite Jewellery, Marcasite rings
We’re busy adding a new category in our popular marcasite jewellery range after quite a few people have asked for it – marcasite rings.
All are set in sterling silver and on the product page you can choose the size you want – just select the required size in the drop down box.
The range is certainly going to be growing – if they prove to be popular I can certainly see many more being added in the next week or so.
What do you think? Any suggestions?

Here’s something interesting about turquoise: initially, this substance was known by a lot of different names, but the word turquoise was derived around 16th century from French, either from the word for Turkish (Turquois) or dark-blue stone (which is pierre turquin in french). Although turquoise doesn’t occur in Turkey, it was heavily traded at turkish bazaars to the venetian merchants, which then brought it to Europe, so this might have been a bit of a misconception Just a funny thing which I thought you might like to know.
Moving on to today’s item, this pair of teardrop turquoise earrings come from Kit Heath’s Vintage collection, and they include a presentation box as do all of our Kit Heath products. The stones are natural and have a blue-ish colour.
They come mounted on a sterling silver setting. If you want to give these as a gift, you can order the gift wrap for only £2 from the product page.

Yes, Anna from Manchester, that nice pair of citrine earrings I showed you yesterday does, in fact, have a complementary necklace And, as I promised you on the phone last evening, here’s a picture and a short presentation of it:
The design is basically the same as for the earrings, made out of two circles (well, three if you count the stone as a separate one). It does not include a chain, but order whichever type and length you like on the product page, as we have a wide selection here at Milton Gems.

Seems that the sterling silver jewllery with turquoise stones I posted about on our blog here at Milton Gems was a big success.
Or is it just that December’s coming, and turquoise being the birthstone of December the reason why you’ve shown such a big interested in it?
Don’t really, know, but either way, by popular request, here’s another superb piece of jewellery, a silver oval necklace with turquoise stone!
It’s fairly big at 35 millimeters in length and 1 and a half centimeters wide, and includes a chain as well which is about 16 inches long.
A nice presentation box is also included, so this makes a great out of the box gift, which you can immediately hang right at your girlfriend’s neck

Earrings are one of our best sold items, and these circular citrine ones from Kit Heat’s Organics collection are a nice piece of handwork.
Hi-quality, natural citrine on a very narrow 925 sterling silver setting, they also have a second silver circle surrounding the one with the stone. Here’s a picture for you, to better grasp what I’m talking about:
These come with a nice presentation box, and they’re about 3.2 centimeters in length and 1.8 centimeters wide.

Today I will show you a really nice pair of earrings from the Kit Heath Iced Gems series, made out of 925 sterling silver and with genuine turquoise stones.
Pay attention though, as these are pretty long at over 5 centimeters in length, and might not be for everybody. There are ladies out there that don’t like longer earrings, or they simply don’t fit them.
So while these might not be for everybody, those women that enjoy longer earrings will definitely like these silver setting with turquoise stone earrings.

Today I want to talk to you a bit about the birthstone of December, turquoise. For those of you unfamiliar with this rare stone, it’s an opaque, blue to green mineral that has been prized both as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years.
I for one really like the colour of turquoise. In my humble opinion, it looks really great on a silver setting. Take a look at this silver bracelet with turquoise stones:
True enough: the silver is very craftily positioned around the three blue-greenish stones. The shape of the stones is accompanied very nicely byt the silver oval-shaped rings as well. It’s about 7 ½ inches long, and indeed a really nice piece of work by designer Kit Heath, and only one of the many jewelery choices on our turquoise jewellery selection!

I wanted to include this in yesterday’s post but I had to run, so I’m telling you about these silver drop earrings with oval citrine now. They go together perfectly with the Oval Citrine and Silver Necklace from yesterday, in fact they’re part of the same set.
They’re fairly long at almost 3 centimeters in length and they’re about 1 centimeter wide.
They come with their own presentation box, like all our Kit Heath jewllery, but if you want to order them as a set to go with the citrine necklace, then make sure you let us know on the order page and we’ll pack them together for you.

This silver necklace with an oval citrine stone comes from designer kit heath, and it not only includes a 16 inches silver necklace, but also a nice presentation box.
This one is ready to wear out of the box, so it would be the perfect gift for someone that’s born in November – as I said before to those that didn’t already knew this, citrine is the birthstone of November and it’s customary to give gifts with citrine stones to those celebrating their birthday this month.

These lovely citrine necklace would make a nice gift for a lady born in November. Not sure if you were aware of this or not, but Citrine is the birthstone of November and all our citrine stones are the organic, original ones, and no the cheap glass variety you can find people selling nowadays.
Shaped like a teardrop, this necklace is on the smaller side, with only 12 mm in height and 8 mm in width, so you might want to give this to a pretty little lady who deserves it *wink*.
A presentation box is included as is with all our Kit Heath products, and a necklace (which is not included) can be ordered hassle free right from the product page.

Out of all the beautiful birthstones we have on jewellry here ate Milton Gems, Amethyst must be one of my favorite ones. Or maybe it’s just that I love purple, I don’t know, but I truly honestly believe this pair of amethyst drop earrings are simply gorgeous!
I like the way the stone is cut on these ones best. It has a lot of facets, some small and some larger, but they’re all clean-cut and capture the light in a special way.
The 925 sterling silver setting designer Kit Heath has been using is shiny and bright and helps bring out the glow of the stones.
Other then being the perfect gift for anyone born in february, our amethyst jewellery selection is both classy and styled, and all for a fair price

I’ve heard it both ways: some say it looks like a two stars pendant, some say it looks like flowers, but either way it’s just as pretty.
It’s fairly large, just below 4 centimeters in length, and it has a nice engraving made out of marcasite stones on a sterling silver setting.
I was thinking of buying something like this for granny as a classy Christmas gift, but I haven’t decided exactly which of the marcasite jewellery I should get, other then the fact that I’ve already decided it will be something with marcasite stones.

Yesterday I showed you a really nice pair of earrings, but I realize now those might not be for everybody. I certainly like them and so do my myspace female friends I asked what they thought, but some women would rather wear something smaller.
To these ladies I would suggest this lovely pair of citrine teardrop shaped earrings which are pretty light in both weight and size, at about 23 mm in height and only 2 grams or so.
The earrings come with a presentation box from our designer, and can be assorted to our Teardrop Shaped Citrine Necklace, for a really fresh, nice looking set.

Not sure if you remember but last week I showed you a piece from our inventory from designer kit heath, a twisted silver and amethyst pendant. And from the looks of things, I wasn’t the only one who appreciated it, since I receive quite a couple emails asking if we had matching earrings for that pendant (which we didn’t have at the time).
Well folks, I have good news for all of you which asked that questions: we’ve just got matching Twisted Silver and Amethyst Drop Earrings and they’re ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!
About 5 cm long, these things of beauty also include a nice presentation box, which comes in handy when if you’re buying them to give as a present.
Of course, if you want to go overboard, we can always gift wrap them for you for a measly £2, thus making sure there’s not additional hoops for you to go through

So the girlfriend was a bit upset this weekend when I stayed out a bit too much on Friday night with the guys. What can I say… it’s not my fault she doesn’t like the pub, I asked her to go along. She didn’t wanna go and it’s still me that is responsible? I don’t get this stuff sometimes…
Anyways, I managed to make it better buy buying her this marcasite locket that’s shaped like a heart, and although it cost me £40 it was worth it, cuz now I won’t have to get her anything for our anniversary this month. In fact I made sure of it and I told here this was an early present.
Of course, I also put a nice picture of us inside (one which she likes) and I also picked up a nice silver necklace from the store. Let’s just say everything’s fine in the “family” now
By the way, I was also considering this other heart with silver filigree, from kit heath, but ultimately decided to go for the locket, since I wanted to add that personal touch with the picture of us.

I must give it to the guy: Kit Heath did a wonderful job on this one. The stone is so nicely cut and it catches the light in a special way. With a setting of 925 sterling silver, this oval pendant with amethyst stone is about 16 mm tall and 8 mm wide. Just the perfect size, in case anybody cares what I think
This particular pendant does not include a chain, but in case you don’t already have the perfect chain to hang this on, feel free to order one straight from the product page. You can count on the fact that there’s always a good selection of chains available here at Milton Gems.

Do you have an aunt that simply loves cats? Or maybe a dear friend that has one of these lovely animals in her lap all the time? Do you, yourself, love these superb creatures and would like to have something to remind you of your real pet while you’re away from home?
Then what better way to show your appreciation for these beloved animals then this really sweet cat brooch made out of marcasite on a silver setting?
It shows two cats from behind, which appear to be lovers (by the way they are “holding tails” too I like to think that the black one is the guy, and the silver kitty with the marcasite necklace is the female.
But I digress – they’re just nice and cuddly and they would make the perfect gift for any cat lover out there.
And, as always, just in case, I want to point you to our marcasite jewellery page, where you will find a wide variety of brooches and what not.

The knot is is one of the best known motifs in Celtic jewelry and art. There are quite a few celtic symbol guides available that list variations of the celtic knots, but many of the purported meanings of the symbols are actually made up. Believe it or not, some folks would con you into buying their trinkets or jewellery by telling you their designs mean “love” or “honour” or whatever else, when there are in fact no known authentic knotwork designs meaning such things.
So I won’t tell you that this pendant from Kit Heath means “undying love” or “forever faithful” or anything like that. But I will tell you instead that it is one of the best stylized representations of a celtic knot you will ever find in a pendant.
It’s quite lovely really; the clear, purple amethyst stone on the shiny silver bed give it a feeling of distinctiveness which you won’t find in many pieces. The chain is not included, but it can be ordered without any hassle right on the product page in any length you find to be most appropriate.
Also, feel free to browse our selection of amethyst jewlery, maybe there’s something else that catches your eye and that you will like even better. To each his own…

Packing an order for one of our customers yesterday I noticed this pair of silver earrings with marcasite stones that I didn’t even know were in our inventory (as some of you know, I’m rather new here at Milton Gems).
I must say, the finesse of the handiwork on these earrings is quite impressive. They’re not too small, at 14 mm in diameter, but not too big either, and they’re shaped in the form of flower petals. I bet they’d make a pretty set, combined with our double marcasite star pendant which you can find here.
Other vintage marcasite jewellery choices can be found here.

Funny story about amethyst folks. The name comes from the Ancient Greek a- ("not") and methustos ("intoxicated"), and these poor people actually believed that the stone protected them from drunkenness. Now, why the bloody hell would anyone want to protect himself from that, I do not know, but apparently these fellows made drinking vessels out of amethyst in the hopes they would not get intoxicated with liquor.
I can’t promise you that this Amethyst Stones Silver Twist Pendant will do you any good in that regard, but what I can promise is that you will be wearing one of the hottest items on our inventory. I mean… just look at it. Have you ever seen anything this pretty?
It comes from designer Kit Heath, and the Silver chain is not included. No worries tho, you can easily order one on the same page you’re getting your pendant from.
As always, our site offer you a nice variety of amethyst jewellery.

I’m not sure if you were aware of this or not, but The beautiful birthstone of November, citrine, is a pretty rare precious stone. It’s why we get so many fake ones on the market these days. Mostly cheap, lousy colored glass.
Rest assured though, at Milton Gems you will always find the genuine thing. Our citrine stones come straight from Rio Grande do Sul, in exotic Brazil, and are of the highest quality.
So is the manufacture of this lovely citrine necklace I’m about to show you. It comes from Kit Heat, it’s about 16 inches long and made from Sterling Silver, so you can be sure it’ll last you for a long time.

Brooches seem to be pretty popular amongst our customers as of late. It looks like, out of all our Marcasite Jewellery Products, brooches are appreciated most. Which is why I’m presenting you one of the latest addition to our online inventory, the Dragonfly Marcasite and Mother of Pearl Brooch.
I for one have seen my fair share of dragonfly brooches, and let me say that most of the ones I’ve seen are just not good enough. They’re big and loud and really don’t cut it. This one piece of jewellery however, has such a great manufacture you expect the dragonfly to just come to life and fly away at any moment
So, if there is a really special, refined lady in your life, this might just make the perfect gift for her!

Another part of the Kit Heath designer children’s collection are these pretty silver guardian angels. Standing on a circular birthstone, you can choose the one for the month required. The picture to the left is peridot which is the august birthstone and a rather fetching green.
The silver chain is 12 inches long but it has a 2 inch extender if required so will fit a wide range of children. It’s a solid 4.5 grams in weight.
As with all Kit Heath jewellery, it comes in a very nice designer presentation box – the children’s box is a colourful red and includes a bag as well which is ideal for this childs necklace.
All in all, this kids birthstone necklace is a great present – choose the childs birth month and you’re away!

August 2nd, 2007 — Kit Heath Silver Children's
A new feature of the Kit Heath children’s silver range of jewellery are the beads. They are mainly letters but there also other types of symbols such as butterflies, heart, dots etc. There are special bead necklaces and bead bracelets that are designed to go with the Kit Heath beads and they’re not static. What I mean by that is one day, your child might want her name spelt out on her bracelet or necklace. The next day, however, she might want her pets name, or friend or whatever
The beads are 0.8cm across and they’re made of silver and coloured enamel – both sides have the letter on it but with different coloured enamel for greater versatility.
These beads and necklaces / bracelets make wonderful gifts and we’ve only had them up a few days and they’ve been selling well – they make great gifts. In fact, we recently went to France and in a local restaurant was a lovely waitress who is often helped by her daughter – Samia. We thought it would be nice to send a bracelet with her name in beads. We will be going back soon and even though we can’t understand each other, I hope to see the look on her face when she wears it.
Take a look at our range in the alphabet bead category – part of the children’s jewellery category.

What do you think of the image to the left? The two cats cuddling – one with mainly marcasite and a silver collar, the other is silver with a marcasite collar. This would be a perfect gift for either a marcasite brooch lover or a cat lover.

July 13th, 2007 — Christening Jewellery
For a lot of people, thoughts of Christmas is a long way off – even though the weather we’re currently having is hardly summer-like! However, it’s at this time of year that we (at Milton Gems) put together new ranges that are being brought out at this time of the year in time for Christmas. This means that there’s always a lot of new and exciting items going onto the site which is one of the reasons that there’s not been a blog entry for a while – there’s just so much going on!
But I’ll try and bring you up to speed on what’s been added – I’m sure you’ll like it!
The popular range – D for Diamonds – has had a lot of items added. Hearts, fairies and horse jewellery are popular at the moment and as always, all D for Diamonds come with a presentation box.
Something else I’m pleased about is that Kit Heath, the widely awarded silver jewellery designer, is in the process of bringing out a new and updated range of Kit Heath children’s jewellery – it is an exclusive range and we’re one of the few who have been chosen to supply the items. Everything comes in a stylish and colourful designer presentation box and bag and I’m sure you’ll love the new pieces – I like the beaded initials which will go down a storm. We shall be getting stock in a few days and I shall be putting the items on as soon as they’re available.
Also on the theme of children’s jewellery, we have added quite a few items to our popular Christening jewellery range especially the christening bracelets, christening pendants and christening earrings. Our Christening bangles remain extremely popular and we’ve also added some more especially non-adjustable ones that are perfect for engraving your Christening message (we don’t engrave, I need to add).
One thing that we are working on is Boys jewellery – we have a nice range but I want to add more and we will be doing in the very near future.
Anyway, that’s a bit of news with regards to our updates on Children’s jewellery. I’ll do a seperate post for adults – just so I don’t confuse things!

Perfect for giving to a baby on their special day, this Christening bangle is adjustable for the perfect fit. This bangle is from the D For Diamonds range and, as such, includes a diamond and comes packeged in a presentation box.
Feel free to take a closer look at our Christening jewellery collection.
