Spotted: Claudia Schiffer wearing Missoma

We were very excited to hear that the gorgeous Claudia Schiffer was seen wearing two beautiful pieces from the Missoma range at a recent public engagement.

Seen at the GUESS 30th anniversary celebrations in Paris last week, Claudia chose Missoma’s brand new MAIYA labradorite cocktail ring and DECO cuff to accessorize her understated outfit. As guest of honour, Claudia was hot property and these beautiful pieces were on full display.

Missoma is a great collection and we have a range of other pieces from their collection available in the Argent shop and online.

 

Missoma comes to Argent

After a few weeks of waiting, we’re pleased to tell you that the brand new Missoma range is now available in the shop.

The range includes a collection of exclusive and innovative designer jewellery, using exotic semi-precious gemstones including topaz, black onyx and moonstone to name a few. Missoma is a bold and contemporary collection of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings. Available in 18ct gold vermeil and Sterling Silver, these recognisable pieces will be ideal for spring, making a fresh and colourful addition to any outfit.

With a large fan base throughout the UK, Missoma has been seen in a number of well-known publications such as Elle, Grazia, Harper’s Bazaar and Marie Claire. The striking style of Missoma will add something completely new to add to your jewellery collection, choosing an item with a range of coloured gemstones or go for a simpler, understated design.

If you’re in and around Leeds, pop in to Argent and have a look at the new range – we’ll be on hand to help whether you’re looking for a gift or if you just feel like treating yourself.

Welcome! Take a peek at Argent’s newest jewellery collections

Welcome to Argent’s new blog! Here, we’ll be bringing you news from Argent as well as a range of posts exploring the latest trends and updates on all things jewellery related.

Firstly let me introduce myself, I’m Claire and I’m the owner of Argent Jewellery. I’ll be posting on here along with some of the girls from the shop giving you some insight into running a jewellery shop and our perspectives on the industry. We hope to bring you regular content and ideas to keep up with fashion, trends, latest offers and new collections we have in stock.

What better way to launch our blog than to tell you a little about our newest collections. Last month myself and Charlotte visited The Jewellery Show, an annual trade show for jewellery at the NEC in Birmingham.

Despite difficult weather conditions, the show still managed to attract over 63,000 retailers from across the country to catch a first glimpse of up and coming ranges. It was not surprising to find a huge number of charms and bead collections dominating the show, as these are still a key trend for 2012. However, the ‘Shamballa’ bracelet (drawstring bracelets encrusted with Swarovski crystals) is creeping into the market offering a slight alternative to the more well-known ranges.

When choosing new pieces for the shop, our main tactic is to look out for what we know our most loyal customers will like, which can be quite an easy thing to predict when they’ve been coming to us for 23 years! We also want to attract new customers and stock ranges which, although possessing timelessness, are in touch with the current fashion trends. It is very important to look at the quality, designs which will appeal to a range of customers, and collections which cater to different budgets.
Here’s a roundup of our new collections:From our visit to the NEC, we acquired some gorgeous new ranges from a couple of designers we already stock – Mounir Designs and Flash Jordan, as well as three completely new designer collections. We hope the new collections will bring variety and some fresh designs our customers will be interested in. They also allow for us to keep up with the trends of the moment helping to attract new customers.

Mounir Design pendants

Mounir Designs
Mounir’s latest addition, to an already intricate and beautiful range, includes letter pendants which incorporate semi-precious birthstones. These would make a great birthday or christening gift.

Flash Jordan
Flash Jordan’s latest collection includes sculptural and stylish cufflinks with semi-precious stones, such as blue topaz, amethyst and garnet. The new ‘Jack the Lad’ collection is based upon the Union Jack and is relevant to the upcoming Olympics and the Queen’s diamond Jubilee.

Seen as the elite of cufflinks, these might attract the high end market.

Missoma bracelet

Missoma
Award winning designer, Missoma, has a collection of innovative designer jewellery in a variety of bold, colourful and directional designs. Available in 18ct vermeil and sterling silver, Missoma’s jewellery uses an array of exotic semi-precious stones.

Missoma has attracted a loyal and ever growing fan-base in the UK and abroad, as it offers affordable luxury with a fine jewellery look.

Rebecca
A new silver plated bronze collection from Rebecca, with a fresh white and sparkling statement that will look great for summer. An early claim to fame as it’s recently been sported by Jennifer Lopez on American Idol.

Stubbs and Co.
The last range we’ve taken on is Stubbs and Co., a fine silver mesh collection predominantly made up of bracelets.

Keep an eye out in store and on our website for the new collections over the coming weeks.
