Jewellery is more than an accessory, it often tells a story and holds a special place in our heart. It brings us back to a different place and time where memories were made. I often find myself going through my jewellery box and looking at pieces that I have received over the years and thinking back at that time. Whether it’s the pearl ring my parents got me at the CNE when I was a little girl, the heart locket my husband bought me for our first Christmas when we started dating, the initial charms for each of my kids that I wear around my neck or my daddy’s wedding ring. All are so special, meaningful and sentimental. It doesn’t matter if it cost you the same amount as a mortgage payment or it was less than what a tank of gas would be…it’s all about who it came from and what made them think of you to buy it.
About a year ago I came across this amazing boutique called Glitz Jewellery and fell in love. They have an amazing variety of items for men, women and children. From gold to silver, diamonds and semi precious stones, designer brands and even their own custom designed pieces…they have it all. There are two lines that they carry that I especially love…Chrysalis for the women and Italgem Steel for the men which of course, I just had to feature in this year’s Chic Mamma Holiday Gift Guide.
Chrysalis is a UK company that was launched back in 2007 by co-founders (husband and wife team) Andrea and David. Their love for jewellery joined together with their love for travel and making memories is what kick started their business. They wanted to create something that was meaningful to the wearer and they were able to do that with their signature bangles. Their bangles are stackable which means each individual is be able to create their own personal story. We love these fun and fashionable pieces. They are perfect for gift giving, whether it be for your mom, the wife, a girlfriend, daughter, aunt or even teacher…you can’t go wrong. Available in different colours…silver, gold and rose gold and with a large selection of charms pick from you’ll be sure to find the perfect meaningful gift for the perfect person. Prices range from $35 to $45.
Now let’s talk men…the hard ones to shop for! Over the past couple of years there has been a major shift in men’s jewellery. Men that weren’t really into jewellery are now finding themselves wearing more and more of it and why? Because they are finding the right way to do it and are coming across great new lines that are targeted specifically for men like Italgem Steel direct from Italy. It’s all about style and accessorizing to compliment your look without going overboard and feeling out of place and how do they do that? With bracelets of course! Keeping it simple, classy yet fun. Stack them up or wear them as singles. With options like beads, leather and steel it’s easy to achieve the the look and feel they want. The secret is to match up what on your wrist to what’s in your closet which is why I love this line that I discovered at Glitz Jewellery Boutique. These bracelets make a great gift and are at the perfect price point starting at $45 for their hook and anchor designs. Any daddy would love to get one from his little ones this Christmas and would surely cherish it and keep it close to his heart knowing it was picked out just for him.
Whatever it is that you are looking for when it comes to jewellery and accessories, Glitz Jewellery Boutique has you covered. With a wide variety items and price points, you’ll be sure to leave with the perfect gift.
