Sparkle Like The Stars For Down To Earth Prices

At the Cannes Film Festival, it’s all about the sparkles and the bling with the average item of jewellery costing six figures…but you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like the stars.

I was recently invited to preview the QVC 20th anniversary collection and new season ranges and I have to admit I was sceptical. I watched the Freeview TV channel when ex Spice Girl Mel C appeared on it to sell her single, mainly because I was curious about what an ex Spice Girl was doing on the channel and I turned it over pretty much straight after that. So I went to the launch with an open mind and then I saw this:

On being told that it was by Giles Deacon I assumed it would be £100s but actually it’s just £36 at QVC online! The first Giles collection, Libertine, features unique a lobster claw ring, antler ear-rings and some quirky cartoon shapes (see below) and there is an equally fabulous second collection out next month…

The Giles collection is just one of QVC’s collaborations with famous people that caught my eye that day. Check out the Andrea McLean range:

Yes, that is Andrea McLean from Loose Women. She may the lady your mum watches at lunchtime but I’d buy her jewellery. The bell pendant on the left reminds me of a De Grisogono item and it’s just £25.50 at QVC online. My favourite thing in her collection is the statement feather ring (top right) which so big and bold it’ll have everyone asking you where it’s from. You don’t have to tell them but you may find it difficult to hide your joy that it’s just £42. What do you think?

And finally, a TV and radio presenter designed these – try guessing who…

It’s Lisa Snowdon, former Britain’s Next Top Model presenter turned Capital FM radio DJ. I wouldn’t have thought that either, I just love the classic elegance of it all. The bracelets come adorned with a heart or a star made from REAL DIAMONDS. The technical term for it is diamond-accent but they’re still great value for money with the double circle necklace costing £149. New pieces will be out next month – I have my eyes on one of the bracelets!

So now you know…QVC does rather fantastic jewellery, made by VIPs, for affordable prices. Which one’s your favourite?
