Don't know if anyone on here remembers, but around 15 odd years ago there was a lovely black lady who came on with her own range of chunky gemstone jewellery. I mean really big stones, like large swiss blue topaz in her bracelets etc. I bought a gold ring with a single huge citrine stone, and this lady used to put the initials of her range within her pieces. My ring has CE on the shank, and I cant remember what it stood for - possibly Chic Elegance, but wondered if anyone else remembers this range. Anyway, I still wear it, and it still gets admired today. I dread to think what I'd have to pay for it in a jewellers today - that's if I could find one the same !

Yes l remember Nail eat etc and also Indigo Moon, still have several lndigo Moon jackets.Do you remember nail eat and nail drink with, was it, Carolyn? There was a clothing range that was highly embellished, fairly expensive, not dreamkeeper. sort of patchwork-y something I could see on Stevie Nicks?
Thanks Twi ! yes that looks to be the same range. I particularly remember a really show stopping bracelet with huge pale blue topaz stones. It looks like the pieces on the website are still following that theme.Chic Elegance was founded in 2000 as a mail order company in Chelsea, London for stylish Ladies & Gentleman that want the Chic Look and Luxury feel at an affordable price.

I loved Taxco in the early days, especially the signed limited pieces but it was another company where the quality went down the Swanee.
Loved Egoli jewellery, Tova’s elephants very similar. Awwww! Suarti, I loved her and her headdresses and dancing.That reminded me of the lady from S Africa who wore the tribal dress and headgear.. Was it something like Igoli gold - I remember it being expensive even then.
I never liked Stuarti (?) silver as I don’t like ethnic styles or oxidised silver and when she got up to dance I used to cringe.
I liked the couple of Israeli jewellery ranges.
I like pearls in unusual settings so I miss the earlier Honora and the lady who did the south sea pearls and for some reason always reminded me of Rosanne Barr!
Brissles was her signature piece a large pear shape citrine ring?
Nice guest, who was the designer, Dominque Dinouart...if I've spelled that right!
