Summer Shells

Summer Shells

As warmer months approach our team here at Nova Silver have been putting together some of our favourite collections which encapsulate the essence of summer. Inspired by our gorgeous Norfolk coastline, we’re sure these pieces will make wonderful additions to your collections or perhaps even a thoughtful gift for someone you love.

From our Kitten Range, this gorgeous Wentletrap Shell set features a matching pendant and earrings inspired by shells seen all across the coastline here in Norfolk. These pieces make for a wonderful gifting set throughout the summer months, ideal for anyone looking to invest in some more adventurous jewellery. Crafted using Sterling Silver, both pendant and earrings display a brushed finish which highlights the intricate structure of the shell. In fact, the word Wentletrap originates from the Dutch ‘wenteltrap’ meaning spiral staircase. For those looking to make more of a statement this summer, our Scallop Shell Bangle is incredibly eye-catching. The Satinised finish on this Sterling Silver bangle emphasises the intricate lines of the shell, making for a truly unique piece.

Turquoise, perhaps one of the best known semi-precious stones, is ideal for anyone looking to add some more colour into their summer wardrobe. This beautiful stone can naturally vary in colour from blues, through to green and even white. Moreover, some turquoise displays no veining at all, and in fact is the most highly prized, whilst some hold a matrix of veins criss-crossing its surface. Each of our turquoise pendants has its own unique qualities, some of our most popular designs featuring this stone are the Small Teardrop Pendant and Rain Drop Pendant, both of which are crafted using Sterling Silver. Each of these pendants would make a lovely addition to any gifting set paired with studs or drop earrings from our expansive range of designs. The stone itself is said to promote a sense of tranquillity in the life of its wearer and has been revered by many cultures as far back in history as Ancient Egypt.

All of these pieces can be found on our website alongside a selection of chains to ensure the perfect fit for any pendant. Also available is our gift wrapping service, adding the finishing touch to your purchase.

Mother' Day

Mother' Day

As we enter into this new month many of us are looking ahead to this annual Mother’s day celebration. The origins of this day can be traced back to the ancient rites of Greek and Roman civilisations, both of which marked a special date during their spring to honour matron Goddesses. In more recent history, the English tradition of Mothering Sunday, celebrated on the forth Sunday of Lent, marked a day of veneration toward the Virgin Mary. This year, here at Nova HQ we have comprised an inspirational gifting guide, full of ideas to make this Mother’s day extra special for your loved ones.

 A truly timeless gift idea is that of matching jewellery sets; we have a wide selection to choose from here at Nova Silver, ranging from unique statement sets to the more simplistic designs, ideal for everyday wear. Our Silver Currents set features a matching pendant and stud earrings in a simple, yet modern wave design, an amazing set to be worn on any occasion. Crafted using Sterling Silver, this gift is sure to last the test of time. However, if you are in search of a more unusual set these complimentary Turtle Studs and Pendant will surely make an impact. One of the oldest symbols associated with the idea of motherhood, the turtle plays an important role in Native American legend, representing the spirit of Mother Earth. In fact, these legends tell the story of giant turtle who aided in the creation of their homeland. To this day the turtle is considered to be a symbol of great strength and unwavering maternal instinct. Perhaps this will be the perfect gift to express your sentiments to the mother figure in your own life this March.

The gift of flowers has long been a commonality during Mother’s day celebrations. If you are looking for a floral gift to last a life time we suggest our range of Sterling Silver bracelets. Our Flower Garland Bracelet perfectly encapsulates the essence of spring, with a textured finish to really emphasise each beautiful detail. A piece like this may be your perfect gift to surprise a loved one this Mother’s Day. All of these ranges are available on our website with free delivery around the UK, and gift wrapping available.

Gift Giving this Valentine's Day!

Gift Giving this Valentine's Day!

Once again we approach the season of romance, a time in which we extend our love and gratitude to those who mean the most to us. Here at Nova Silver we want to give you our advice on how to make an impact with your gift giving this Valentine’s Day. Whether, you are buying for your romantic partner or showing the love to your closest friends this year, we all wish to make our loved ones happy.

One of many universal symbols of love is that of Cupid; when Rome conquered Greece in around 31BC the depiction of Cupid as a plump, winged child first emerged. Portrayed with a bow and arrow, most are unaware that Cupid had two very different uses for his arrows. When he fired his golden arrow, the heart where it landed was immediately filled with love for only one other, a love that would last for all eternity. However, a strike from his lead arrow brought about the end to love in one’s heart. We hope that our collection of Sterling Silver arrow jewellery may represent an everlasting love affair this Valentine’s.

Since times long ago, our understanding of nature has also acted as a symbol of love and connection. In Greek mythology the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, was often depicted in the company of doves, thus marking them as a symbol of romantic devotion. Moreover, doves are widely known to remain loyal to their mating partners for life, one of the reasons why doves are commonly released during wedding ceremonies. Perhaps a matching set of dove jewellery, beautifully crafted using Sterling Silver, will act as a symbol of your everlasting love this February.

New Year, New Beginnings!

New Year, New Beginnings!

As we welcome in this New Year, many of us are in need of some wonderful new beginnings to reinvigorate our lives. One of the countless things we can do to bring this positive new energy into our lives is to wear some beautiful crystal pieces which will symbolise and attract the transformation we’re creating. Here at Nova Silver we have researched some amazing suggestions for crystal companions this New Year.

Moonstone, with its luminescent hues, holds a deeply feminine, intuitive energy which provides a gentle guidance when creating great changes in our lives. Many ancient cultures, including Greeks and Hindus, believed that this stone held trapped moonbeams which would, in times of need, guide them along their path. In fact, this legend earned Moonstone the nickname "The Traveller’s Stone”. Moreover, this eye-catching crystal has been celebrated as a great attractor of success, illuminating ones positive qualities and providing sparks of inspiration. Overall, Moonstone is truly a wonderful crystal for anyone looking to find their path.

Labradorite, an equally eye-catching stone with its deep blue-green flashes, is commonly referred to as the "Transformation Stone”. The energy of perseverance and powerful grounding qualities of this stone aid its wearer in maintaining a clear and peaceful mind as they traverse the trials of change in their life. Furthermore, Labradorite is associated with the energy of the Crown Chakra, a symbol of higher thinking and spiritual expansion. Thus, the Labradorite stone is said to encourage a person in the pursuit of their highest aspirations and help to break through any sense of limitation. This is undoubtedly the ideal energy to be carrying as you seek out new beginnings this New Year.
