New baubles for summer 2010

Summer is well and truly under way already – with schools breaking up at the end of this week, that’s always a sign that the holiday season is upon us. And here at Rok Chix we’ve been beavering away with some lovely new bits and pieces to celebrate the long, sunny days (fingers crossed, that is).

First up, our fabulous rough diamond range kicks off with some gorgeous Black Diamond Hoop Earrings, £95; delicate little silver hoops that have been carefully wrapped with twinkly little black diamond nuggets. As you’d expect from Rok Chix, they’re simple but stunning, and quite unique. And they go with absolutely everything. Perfect for adding a touch of raw, unspoilt glamour to your look.

Then there’s our first diamond ring – made with a rough diamond, of course (£145).  Now these are totally unique, because each diamond is different as it’s natural and uncut. The one on our website is a champagne-coloured rough diamond (each stone is around one carat in weight), but we have other colours available, including silver and brown diamonds. So if you want to make buying a diamond ring a truly one-off experience, you can pick your stone – just email us at, and we’ll send you a snap of the stones we have in stock.

Normally a one-carat diamond ring would set you back a great heap of cash, but because we’re setting the diamonds in silver rather than gold or platinum – and because we’re using natural rather than cut diamonds – they’re much more affordable (so go on, splurge). We think the natural diamonds look much more interesting anyway.

If you like your stones precious but you prefer more colour than diamonds, how about our Silver and Emerald Bird of Joy Necklace, £45.  This features a lovely little silver bird stamped with the word JOY, and hung on a delicate silver chain with a single, twinkly emerald bead. Very pretty it is too.

We’ve also got some lovely pieces that, well in our opinion at least, contain the essence of summer. For instance, our Silver Seahorse Necklace, £55, is bursting with sunshine and that feeling you get when you’re by the ocean. It features a solid silver seahorse charm – quite a chunky one, none of your flimsy stuff here – and a bright peach/pink coral gem to add a pop of colour.

Then for jangly earrings fans, our Silver Leaves and Rose Quartz Earrings, £35, are perfect for long, hot summer nights when you feel like dressing up (but you don’t want to go over the top). And finally, a friendship bracelet with a difference: our Silver and Leather Weave Bracelets, £35, feature coloured leather thong woven with sterling silver chain – the effect is quite special, even if we say so ourselves.

Available in pink, royal blue or black leather, these bracelets are so adorable (and highly wearable too, you won’t be able to take them off. In fact, we’ve been wearing ours non-stop for the last few months (well, we’ve got to test their durability – it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it).

We hope you find something you like – most items are dispatched within two to three days of ordering (and there’s free p&p), so there’s time to get that new piece you’ve been looking for to complete your summer holiday wardrobe.

Whatever you do and wherever you spend your summer, have a truly great one.
