Price Points: Topaz jewellery

Topaz jewellery | H is for Home

It’s my birthday in (less than) a couple of weeks. Justin often buys me a ring or necklace – and hopefully this year he’ll get me some topaz jewellery.

I used to think that I had the most boring birthstone – a drab brown thing. I wished I was born in a different month – like February that has beautiful purple amethyst as its birthstone. It was only years later that I realised that topaz is also available as a blue, pink, green or clear stone… and I’ve actually grown to quite like the brown variety.

I’d be quite happy with unwrapping any of the above on the 24th… or even all three! 🙂

  1. Pink coated topaz stud earrings in platinum overlay sterling silver: £19.99, TJC
  2. Michael Kors rose gold tone topaz bracelet: £89.00, Goldsmiths
  3. Blue topaz gold ring – square stone: £341.63, Etsy

Imperial Candles 100% natural soy wax candle in Calm Lavender

Have you noticed a change in me? Have you seen how calm & serene I’ve become recently? No? Well, just take my word for it. It’s all down to my new night-time regime.

Imperial Candles package arrived

Six weeks ago, a package arrived from Imperial Candles containing one of their 100% soy wax candles in Calm Lavender.

That evening, my bath-time routine took a turn for the better. Bath run, bubble bath poured, lights off, radio on, candle lit and (the occasional) glass of red wine.

I haven’t looked back, this has my daily wind-down routine ever since! The fragrance is amazing, I close my eyes and breathe deeply, the day’s stresses melting away. But wait, there’s more, the candle contains a little extra. Each candle is made with a beautiful ring (or earrings or necklace) wrapped up in foil and suspended within it.

It may be worth £10, it may be worth £2,000 – you won’t know until you’ve burned your candle to about a third of the way down and extracted the little package with tweezers. It took me 6 weeks of baths to get to this stage! As the saying goes, ‘good things come to those who wait’. Isn’t it beautiful?
