Best of British Bling Backs Miss England

Clip on earring specialist jewellers, www.make-me-beautiful.co.uk, sponsor British Beauty Queen, Alize Mounter as she stands for England at Miss World

By conventional standards, it’s not been a year with much to cheer about. Food and heating costs have increased, budgets have been slashed and politicians around the globe continue to make ugly faces at each other rather than work together to solve the issues. Yet this year the 61st Miss World contest will be staged in London, UK and clip on earring specialist jewellers, Make Me Beautiful, have got together with reigning Miss England, Alize Mounter, to show that Britain’s got beauty.

“Like the best English tweed, Alize is unfussy yet stunningly put together with a surprising amount of inner strength”, spoke Make Me Beautiful founder, Misae Richwoods . “We just had to get behind her and support her in England ‘s bid for Miss World when it comes to home turf!”

Make Me Beautiful have become Miss England’s Official Jewellery Sponsor at Miss World and arranged for a number of English designer brands to be available for Alize to wear. Participating designers and brands include Fiorelli, Adele Marie and Zandra Rhodes of London, Barbara Easton of Maidenhead and Elements Silver who are based in Essex.

The Miss World 2011 Final will be televised although the contest will have run for three whole weeks for the contestants.

“It’s not a case of turn up and look pretty on the night,” laughed Alize, who’s previous television experience included the hit series Britain’s Next Top Model. “We’ll be with the judges for three weeks having all sorts of random activities thrown at us. At this level, it’s not just competing on looks as all the other girls are stunning. It’s who has the right personality to carry forwards the charitable work the Miss World organisation carries out as the winner will spend a year doing just that. I’m really excited to be representing England and look forward to being at Miss World.”

Alize completed her warm up to Miss World by taking time out from her degree studies to jump from an aeroplane, raising over £2,000 for the Parachute Regiment Charity in the process. With past global audiences for the show surpa ss ing the 2 billion mark, the world will see if a star shines for Alize that night. Over 8 million UK viewers are expected to tune in when Channel 5 broadcasts the Miss World finals on November 6th 2011.

Always at the forefront of timepiece technology TAG Heuer is also a major player in developing sporting success in the motorsport world.

Not only do the company support upcoming cart drivers through their ‘Junior Ambassador’ scheme, but they also support the likes of the Red Bull Racing team, home of reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel and his team mate Mark Webber. With the growing interest in motorsport in Asia, the group has now issued a special watch to commemorate the inauguration of the Indian GP in New Delhi.

The race is not the first involvement in motor racing for the Sub-continent. Force India entered the Formula One contest in the 2008 season and currently compete with two cars with the lead being taken by German born driver Adrian Sutil. The team currently lies in sixth place in the Constructors Championship.

The watch launched by TAG Heuer in support of the Indian GP also marks 150 years of involvement in high speed racing by the luxury watch manufacturer. The TAG HeuerCarrera Tachymeter Chronograph forms the basis of the special edition.

The special edition will be limited to just 200 numbered pieces world-wide. The limited edition has been adorned with the logo of ‘Mastering Speed for 150 Years’ and features striking India colours – Saffron and Green.

The special ‘Mastering Speed for 150 Years’ logo has been placed on the dial at the 9 ’o clock and also features on the Sapphire Crystal case back. Both the chronograph and the stitching on the leather strap are adorned with traditional Indian saffron colours.

Taking its name from a south-American road race, the Carrera models are designed for drivers and feature an easy to read dial, important when you are driving at F1 or Rally driving speeds. From F1 timekeeping to Le Mans and Indy 500, the company has longstanding partnerships with the greatest events and drivers in the world of timekeeping.

New Jewelry Line Ready to Launch its Fall 2011 Collection

Introducing Leuer a new fashion brand that is ready to introduce its new fall 2011 jewelry collection. Featuring Egyptian style glam pieces that will go perfect with any outfit, whether dressy or casual. The seven piece debut collection features necklaces, bracelets, earrings and a ring. It combines edgy designs that are softened with bright sparkling gemstone and a high polish finish that gives it a distinctive look.

Leuer was founded by Ashley Gordon, in May 2010. “I started sketching different designs of jewelry and was impressed with the outcome, so I decided to have them made and I loved the way they turned out, that was when I knew that I was on to something” says the owner. She later set out on a mission that would enable her to capitalize on her new found passion.

Leuer will most likely appeal to females who like to stand out, and those who tend to be very individualistic. The purpose that we wish to accomplish is to assist these individuals with expressing their fashion style with our jewelry. These individuals are between the ages of 18-40 and are fashion lovers that are willing to experiment with different styles.

Leuer is expected to expand in the coming years to not only jewelry but a fully fledged lifestyle brand. You can shop our current collection online at http://leuershop.com/.

Award winning clip on earring specialist jewellers, make-me-beautiful.co.uk, review trends at London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week has hardly had time to get out of it’s high heels and massage it’s sore feet yet already journalists are waxing lyrical about this season’s trends. Award winning clip on earring specialist jewellers, make-me-beautiful.co.uk, were at Somerset House to meet colleagues, be wowed by suppliers and to survey the latest trends. Make Me Beautiful founder, Misae Richwoods, outlined three key trends in accessories for S/S12:

1. Get Feminine – With Bora Aksu, Jena Theo and Emilia Wickstead exhibiting bare-breasted models on the first day’s catwalk’s alone, London Fashion Week S/S12 steps away from it’s recent flirtation with androgyny to re-declare a passionate love affair with the female form. Think elegant curves and shapes, daintily finishing often with a subversive or slightly sinister twist adding a bit of playful cheekiness.

2. Geometrics Make a Statement – Powerful Aztec shapes with angular cuts and asymmetrical finishes make the season’s statement wear as Holly Fulton, Jaeger London and Sass and Bide all bounced the house in bold numbers. Brilliant Swarovski crystals, oversized pearls and multi-textural bodywork provide perfect staging and emphasis with sharp colours and spiky shapes that flashback the 80s

3. Keep it Natural – With florals (Erdem, Christopher Kane and Ashish) and animal prints (House of Holland) making their way onto the catwalk a range of decorative reminiscence backs it up with Cabinet including antlers, Renaissance featuring deers, Mawi showing their Minnie Mawi collaboration with Disney Couture and Les Néréides showing a whole arc full of cute characters and cheerful flowers.

Fashion156 Magazine tweeted afterwards, “LFW is so strong this season. Reminds me of McQueen’s LFW era when you walked out of his shows feeling you could bounce over a skyscraper.” Make Me Beautiful announce they will feature a curated collection of some of the most desirable and wearable pieces from some of the brightest designers as they increase choice in their specialist clip on earring collection. Look out for new designer partnerships being announced from late Autumn or follow Minxy’s Jewellery on Facebook or Twitter.

Diamond Jewellery Market Growth in East

Recent figures suggest that the market for diamond jewellery in the near future is expected to be driven by increased growth in India, China and the Gulf.

These emerging Eastern markets have demonstrated significant growth in the past few years, with diamonds proving increasingly popular as both a luxury item and a long-term investment.

By 2015, it is predicted that India, China and the Gulf will equal or surpass the market share of the US, which currently stands at 35 to 40 per cent. In 2010, India and China were already up 31 and 25 per cent respectively.

However, with worldwide reserves of diamonds at an all-time low, this new growth in Eastern countries means the balance between supply and demand is set to become more mismatched than ever; forecasts warn that demand is likely to outpace lower levels of diamond supply for many years to come.

With diamonds only getting rarer, it’s likely that the value of diamonds will continue to ascend on a global scale in the same way that gold and silver prices have already, increasing the natural treasure’s worth in the long term.

Although diamond prices have already begun to reflect the imbalance between supply and demand, the view that diamonds are an ‘investment vehicle’ that has the potential to grow – or at least remain the same – means customers are continuing to buy.

When compared to the inflated prices of gold, diamonds also – for the time being – pose a more affordable alternative in an unsteady economy.

It is yet to be seen how the rising value of diamonds will affect the production and/or prices of popular jewellery brands, popular in both the East and West, which feature diamond-encrusted pieces in their collections. For now, however, fans of Pandora jewellery and the like need not worry.

Visit the Jewel Hut, one of the UK’s leading jewellery websites, today to view an extensive collection of diamond jewellery.

Sekonda Watches Party on TV’s Popstar to Operastar

The party is nearly over for ‘Popstar to Operastar’ contestants Joe McElderry and Cheryl Baker but it never stops for Sekonda watches.

Over the past five weeks, Sekonda has showcased its colourful range of Party Time watches in its role as official show sponsor of ITV1’s singing competition.

In that time, the eight celebrity contestants have been whittled down to finalists McElderry and Baker, who will compete against each other to be crowned the winning ‘Operastar’ on Sunday’s final show.

Although the final curtain will come down on ‘Popstar to Operstar’ for another year, fans of Partytime won’t have to wait that long to see their favourite Sekonda watches return to the screen.

The new series of ‘Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model’, which commenced on Sky Living on Monday (04 July), will feature the modelling hopefuls sporting Sekonda Partytime watches as part of one week’s challenge.

Sekonda watches’ starring role in Living’s fashion show follows last year’s photo shoot, which saw contestants wearing Casio Baby-G watches and led to show winner Joy McLaren being selected as an official brand ambassador.

Although it is not yet known whether this year’s winner will enjoy a similar deal modelling Sekonda Partytime watches, the brand itself is sure to benefit from another turn in the TV spotlight.

Each Partytime watch boasts a bold, single colour strap with a glittering stone-set bezel, providing a colour for every party any time of the year.

With Christmas approaching, it’s likely that Sekonda will continue its sponsorship of ITV shows over the festive period following annual slots in 2009 and 2010, which won the watch brand even more fans in the run-up to Christmas.

A wide range of Sekonda watches, including the Partytime range, can be viewed at the Watch Hut, the UK’s largest watches website.

Citizen Watches Ambassador Kim Clijsters Misses Wimbledon

Citizen watches ambassador Kim Clijsters has confirmed that she will miss this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

The injury is the second suffered this year by Clijsters, after the first prevented her from playing in this year’s French Open. Clijsters sustained the new injury during her match against Romina Oprandi at the UNICEF Open in the Netherlands.

During the match, she skidded on the grass court and fell, twisting her right ankle which resulted in severe bruising and a tendon injury. The new injury is unrelated to her previous ankle problem and it is thought it could not have been prevented by the application of ankle tape.

The Citizen watches ambassador has been ordered to rest and will resume training in a month’s time to enable her to take part in this summer’s major US events such as the US Open, which takes place in late August. The event features Clijsters’ major sponsor Citizen watches as the official timekeeper.

Earlier this season, the player had to take time off to recover from shoulder and wrist injuries sustained as a result of the WTA tournament in Miami at the end of March. In early April, she injured her ankle whilst attending the wedding party of a cousin. She returned to the courts at the French Open but her lack of competitive play and training activity showed and she was ousted in the second round by the Dutch player Arantxa Rux, currently ranked 114th in the professional standings, 112 places below Clijsters.

Clijster has so far reached four Grand Slam finals and has won 34 singles titles in her career. She has also won 9 doubles titles with her partner, Japanese player Ai Sugiyama. She retired from the sport in 2007, playing her last tournament in Warsaw. Kim returned to the game in March 2009 initially aiming to participate in exhibition tournaments but returned to competitive tennis in August 2009. A few weeks later she returned to the US Open, the tournament she won in 2005.

Pandora Jewellery Line Launches Online Mag

The Copenhagen-based jeweller behind the Pandora bracelets range is set to venture into online publishing to help it to stay in contact with its millions of customers worldwide.

The first issue of the online magazine will launch on 20th June 2011 and will be sent to the 1.6 million members of their website-based Pandora Club.

The magazine will feature behind the scenes insights into the brand, fashion shoots, style tips and the stories behind customer’s purchases of Pandora jewellery and bracelets. Published six times per year, the magazine will initially launch in an international format which the company eventually hopes to be able to adapt with local content such as special events and promotions.

The launch of the magazine marks an important step in the evolution of the company. Since the UK launch in 2006 the company’s product range, which now includes rings and watches, has been selling at a phenomenal rate. The company has managed supply and demand successfully, due in large part to its integrated designs, manufactures and distribution.

Founded in 1982, Pandora jewellery is today sold in more than 55 countries on six continents through over 10,000 points of sale, including more than 450 Pandora branded concept stores as well as online from stores such as thejewelhut.co.uk.

Whilst the financial projections were made successfully, what could not have been seen is the way in which consumers have taken the brand to their hearts. Pandora bracelets have become very different from a standard jewellery product; it has taken on a life of its own and has become a part an important constituent of the lives of its wearers. This symbiotic relationship has created many repeat customers who have made their charm bead collection an integral part of their lives.

Mikkel Berg, executive marketing director, quoted in a recent Marketing Week article, said: “This magazine rewards our customers’ loyalty and gives new opportunities for them to share their thoughts with each other and the company.”

Cameron Diaz Set to Be New Face of TAG Heuer Watches

Hollywood starlet Cameron Diaz is set to become the latest high profile celebrity to endorse TAG Heuer watches.

Although an official announcement is yet to be made, reputable sources report that Diaz is set to join Leonardo DiCaprio as an ambassador for the popular, prestigious watch brand.

TAG Heuer watches, which are particularly popular in Diaz’s native US, have long been associated with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars; prior to DiCaprio’s current role as ambassador, Brad Pitt and Uma Thurman both featured in TAG Heuer campaigns.

With sources pointing to Diaz being next in line to the TAG Heuer ambassador throne, the company’s reputation for attracting the Hollywood elite is as strong as ever.

Diaz can currently be seen in cinemas in hit comedy ‘Bad Teacher’, where she stars alongside ex Justin Timberlake, and was last year ranked by Forbes Magazine as the third highest-paid actress in Hollywood.

The actress’s box office appeal has spanned over a decade of cinema, from her breakout turn in ‘There’s Something About Mary’ to dramatic roles (‘In Her Shoes’, ‘My Sister’s Keeper’), indie endeavours (‘Being John Malkovich’, ‘A Life Less Ordinary’) and successful franchises (‘Shrek’, ‘Charlie’s Angels’).

Her new role as TAG Heuer ambassador will cast Diaz in a promotional role for the Swiss watch brand. Upon an official announcement, promotional shots featuring Diaz wearing a timepiece will be expected shortly afterwards.

TAG Heuer watches have provided watch fans and collectors with the best in Swiss ‘avant-garde’ since 1860. Many of the brand’s watches have gone on to become iconic examples of watch-making craftsmanship, including the Carrera line and the infamous Monaco. TAG’s long-established relationship with the field of motorsports means Diaz will feel right at home, following her stint behind the wheel of an Indy Race Car in the first ‘Charlie’s Angels’ movie.

Charlotte Howard Introduces a New Line of Aromatherapy Jewelry from HealthSpring Essentials

Charlotte Howard, owner of HealthSpring Essentials, has created a unique collection of artisan glass aromatherapy necklaces for the aromatherapy enthusiast. Featuring handmade lampwork glass vials that are topped with natural cork, these one-of-a-kind pieces are a new way to wear healing essential oils.

The Problem: Traveling with essential oils is cumbersome at best. Multiple glass bottles that need to be kept upright and secure in one’s purse or bag can be a headache when one is going to work, shopping, or on vacation.

The Solution: Aromatherapy Jewelry. Aromatherapy jewelry is not new. But, seeing the same stuff everywhere on the web can be disheartening to the aromatherapy devotee. Combining healing aromatherapy with fashion is the natural next step for the woman who uses essential oils everyday. Discrete or dramatic, earthy or sophisticated, small or large – Howard has assembled a variety of new aromatic necklaces to complement the aromatherapy lover’s wardrobe.

The aromatherapy pendants, amphoras, and lockets come in every color and hang from strong, very soft, silk cord that is hand-dyed and hand-sewn, or from sterling silver chain. Carefully chosen beads of glass, sterling silver or copper adorn each piece of jewelry.

Asked why this line was created, Howard responds, “With so many people into aromatherapy these days, including myself, I created a line of really beautiful pieces, something different for the woman who is passionate about aromatherapy and beauty. I kept seeing the same sort of jewelry out there, and it wasn’t very exciting, or fashionable.”

Supporting local artists is also a passion of Charlotte Howard’s. Sourcing handmade glass from the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii , copper work from Sedona, AZ, silver from Bali, and hand-sewn pure silk cord from California , is an integral part of the creative process.

“I am always working with local artists to create unique and powerful pieces. My goal is to present their skills and creativity to the aromatherapy market. There are people out there who love to wear art and who also love aromatherapy – people who appreciate this beautiful and natural combination. I am very proud of the craftsmanship that goes into each piece.”

Aromatherapy Jewelry by HealthSpring Essentials is a collection that will continue to grow with new pieces being added weekly.
