Come and Join the Jubilation!

Unless you have been living in a cave for the last 12 months, most of you will be aware of the two major events set to hit the UK during the following summer months; The Olympic Games and our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. With the Diamond Jubilee less than a fortnight away and fast approaching, we at Argent are eagerly anticipating the chance to indulge in all things British as the beloved Union Jack makes a big comeback.

Here is just a small selection of the ranges we have in store that could assist you in flying the flag during this festive summer period.

Trollbeads

Last Spring in time for the Royal wedding Trollbeads released their whimsical and charming collection of Trollbeads UK World Tour beads featuring 4 Beads. The ‘English Tea Party’ bead, reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland and a archetypal English summer is one of three silver beads which also includes ‘Love Spoons’ and ‘Celtic kilt’, indicative of Welsh and Scottish heritage; and finally the glass UK Colours bead representing our unification.

This year they have done it again and perfectly timed the release of a new selection of special edition starter bracelets with the Diamond Jubilee. Each bracelet comes in its own presentation box and comprises of a silver bracelet ranging from 18cm – 23 cms in, a classic flower lock and the choice of either a red, blue, or white ‘diamond bead’’.  A perfect way for Trollbead fans old and new to commemorate the occasion in a special way.

 

Sphere of Life

A classic and long running Argent favourite, this sterling silver, gold plate and enamel ‘National Treasure’ flag pendant and chain, perfect for anyone looking for a jubilee gift with an impact, with its deluxe packaging that plays on the spherical theme of eternal continuity.

If you’re looking to add a touch of glitz and glamour to your Jubilee celebrations, then look no further than Argent’s best selling range, Candy Bling.

The signature collection of Shamballa earrings and bracelets combines tradition with current trend through their luxurious crystal encrusted Union Jack beaded bracelets and with prices starting at under £20 there is something available for any budget.

 

Simon Carter

And last but by no means least, something for the gentleman.
Back in March we briefly touched on the arrival of the new Flash Jordan ‘Jack the Lad’ cufflinks which gave a contemporary twist on the linear Union flag design. But if it’s a classic aesthetic that you are after for such an affair as this, then nothing could be more elegant or befitting than Simon Carter’s range of ‘West End’ cufflinks.
The collection features a variety of quintessential British designs of both past and present that reference periods of ultimate style such as mod culture and the swinging sixties and these Union Jack button cufflinks are offered in a choice of either cloth or enamel; which only leaves the question of which pair to choose?!
