Did you know that tonight over 20,000 people will sleep on the streets? 40% of them will be under 25 years old?
Rosies - Friends on the Street are a charity which supports the homeless - providing much needed services - including a hot drink and a bite to eat.
To celebrate our 43rd year in business - we're running a charity drive to help support Rosies. Just bring in a tin of instant coffee and we'll give you a ticket to go into the draw to win this created pink sapphire and diamond ring handset in 9ct gold.
Your small act of kindness can make a big difference to someone tonight.
GOOD LUCK - and thanks for all your support
Working with some coloured gemstones can be quite a challenge. Mother Nature creates stunning gifts - but for really outstanding examples in finished jewellery, you must be prepared to wait.
This recent set is the culmination of many years of patient collecting. Matching size, colour and pattern in opals is very difficult whilst matching the colour, clarity and luminance of high grade chrysoprase is becoming harder as less examples are being released into the local market due to the extreme popularity in the Asian market.
But beautifully unique pieces such as these are a joy to behold - and certainly worth waiting for!
