Behind the SCENES
Whether searching out the perfect gift for a loved one or treating yourself to something sparkly for a special festive occasion, our fashion shoot with Dipples jewellers is full of ideas
As the invitations for those special festive occasions start to arrive, it can be hard enough to decide what to wear, let alone which jewellery to pick out – so why not gift yourself an early Christmas present?
Dipples, one of Norfolk’s oldest familyowned jewellers, which has shops in Norwich and Dereham, stocks a wide range of watches and jewellery, from many leading brands as well as some more unusual designers.
Among those used in the shoot were collections from Longines, Gucci, Elliot Brown, Emozioni and Hot Diamonds.
“At Dipples we pride ourselves on being able to offer something for everyone and every occasion. We stock everything from high fashion collections like Emozioni, to traditional classics like pearls and gold and even unique one-off pieces,” says Dipples' Gemma Welham.
“The ametrine ring featured here is one such piece. As the name suggests, it is a gemstone made up of both amethyst and citrine that have naturally formed next to each other to make one bi-coloured crystal. It is gems like this that make us stand out from the crowd and we are always on the lookout for something rare and exciting.”
Dipples was originally founded 140 years ago in Essex, before it moved to Suffolk and then Norwich in 1894. It has been located in Swan Lane ever since and proudly retains that rich heritage, offering advice to customers on what jewellery can suit what looks and occasions.
“As we move into the colder months and we throw on more warm layers, it's great fun to go bold with your jewellery and layer up that too. The more, the better!” says Gemma. “Have fun with different colours, textures and styles. We love the sumptuous effect of layered necklaces, bracelets and rings and here at Dipples we are here to help you put together that perfect combination to go with your autumn/winter wardrobe.
