Valentines Gift Ideas For Her...

We know it can be a struggle to find the perfect Valetines gift for your wife or girlfriend, so here at Warbys we have made it as easy as possible for you. We have narrowed down all of our stock to 5 very different gift ideas, and we are sure your partner will love one of them!

1) Celebrate and spoil your Valentine with this limited edition Trollbeads ‘Be My Valentine’ bangle. The bangle comprises of a fabulous 'Be My Valentine' glass bead (that is sold separately here) which features four copper hearts encapsulated in the coloured glass of the bead and two silver stoppers. This is a perfect gift to give your Valentine as copper is said to be the metal of Venus, the goddess of love.

2) A more simplistic yet beautiful gift you could give this Valentine’s Day is the ChloBo Lucky 13 Cute Black Sparkle Mini Love Always Bracelet. This bracelet consists of faceted Black Onyx beads with a Mini Love Always charm, the charm is a sterling silver heart charm engraved with the word “Love” on one side and “Always” on the other. Black Onyx is a protective stone and is believed to release negative emotions and control stress; therefore it is a perfect gift to give this Valentines to protect the one you love.

3) If a bracelet is not what you are after, this next gift idea may be perfect for you. This Thomas Sabo Sterling Silver Love/Kiss Ring with Polished Letters & inset White CZ can be worn every day and will be a constant reminder of the love you share.

4) Remember diamonds are a girl’s best friend. If you buy this Citizen Ladies Eco Drive Riva Chronograph Diamond Set Watch, your Valentine is sure to love it. The watch features a stainless steel diamond set mid-sized case with a stunning Mother of Pearl dial. Diamonds and Pearls what more could your Valentine ask for?

5) If you wish to buy you Valentine something very on-trend and modern, we would recommend the Thomas Sabo Feather ear cuff from the Glam & Soul collection. This ear cuff makes a gorgeous accessory that will enchant anyone, it is available in both silver and rose gold.

If you need more gift ideas we have a designated 'Gifts for Ladies' section on our website to help you buy the perfect Valentines Gift for your partner!

In Dreamlands

31 March 2012 14:02:00 BST

ChloBo Dreamlands

I’m sure you won’t be surprised if I tell you that Miss Warburton and all the ladies here at Warby Towers have been waiting in breathless anticipation over the release of Dreamlands - two new ChloBo Spring Summer Collections – one in sparkling silver and one in perfect pastel shades.

The name of ChloBo’s Dreamlands collection was inspired by Chole Moss’ visit to Bali’s most beautiful beach, Dreamland. How Miss Warburton wishes she was on that beach right now, basking in the hot Balinese sunshine. Anyway, this is the very same beach where Chloe originally had a chance meeting with a woman making intricate silver bracelets thus inspiring our talented Chloe to her to follow her own dream and set up ChloBo jewellery.

The rest, as they say, is history, and ChloBo has quickly become one of Warbys’ tipper-toppermost brands. This new Dreamland Collection is divided into the Silver Sparkle Dreamlands range, a perfect addition to the ChloBo Iconics family; and the stunning Spring Summer 2012 collection sporting pastel colours, capturing the spirit of ChloBo’s Bohemian roots and in step and on trend with the latest fashion.

All the girls here are resplendent in their pastel shades already and I can personally guarantee we’ll all be modelling the ChloBo Dreamlands bracelets and necklaces here in the shop and on our occasional soirees to the local hostelries and restaurants.

You can see the full collection, available to order from today, right here.

Kelly Loves ChloBo

27 January 2012 21:31:06 GMT

Well! Even more celebrity ChloBo news! Miss Warburton and her precious little underlings were both astonished and delighted to see the absolutely gorgeous Kelly Rowland wearing a stack of fabulous ChloBo jewellery on her new music video for “Keep it Between Us.”

Kelly rose to fame as one of the founding members of the American girl group Destiny's Child, along with lovely Beyonce Knowles and Michele somebody. Between the group and her solo and collaborative projects, Kelly has sold around eighty two million records worldwide. Not quite sure what ‘records’ are, maybe ask your dad. But that’s a LOT, whatever they are. So she sure is popular.

Anyway, I think you’ll agree with us that she looks just beautiful in those lovely ChloBo bracelets, and of course you can buy them in store on online from the girls at Warbys!
Take it away Kelly!

ChloBo on Big Bro

11 January 2012 14:15:27 GMT

Happy New Year peeps! Sorry it's a little late, but overcoming the inertia of the holiday season is always difficult at best, and Miss Warburton may have indulged a little more than usual.

Well, as you can imagine, all the girls here at Warburtons were absolutely thrilled to see our favourite Loose Woman, the delightful Denise Welch enter the Celebrity Big Brother house at the weekend, sporting an armful of silver ChloBo bracelets!

You can only see them peeping out in the photo above, but when she entered 'The House' and took off her fur coat, you could see the whole stack! Now Miss Warburton and her minions will be avidly watching every minute of Channel 5's show to see if Ms. Welch wears them again. And we're absolutely certain she will!

And meanwhile, you can load up on ChloBo bracelets just like Denise's right here.

Miss Warburton is trying not to look, but Christmas is coming, and although a certain individual here at the shop hasn't yet started playing her Matt Munro CD on endless rotation, it won't be long now.

It includes two new limited edition glass bead sets, with red and green, and blue and white themes; a beautiful glittering blue bead inlaid with cubic zirconia; misletoe in gold and silver flavours; a new Tiger's Eye bead and a gold heart lock; there's even a really sweet little teddy bear.

Check out the whole range here in our New Season Trollbeads section.

Meanwhile Miss Warburton will be found standing under the miseltoe waiting for her luck to change.
