Universal Standard, a clothing line which caters for women between sizes 10-28, are all about setting the standard.

Indeed, their online mission statement declares: "We had become tired of making compromises, of always settling for what "worked" instead of what we really wanted, of sacrificing freedom of choice and personal style because of an arbitrary dividing line determined by size."

 

We call it our wear-anywhere dress. It's the Crepe Geneva. Shop the look. Link in bio.

"No more compromising. It's time to #SetTheStandard," they insist.

And it looks like they are no longer happy to simply set the standard when it comes to a woman's wardrobe, now have their sights set on her jewellery box.

 

Your style. Your size. Our limited edition jewelry collection is finally here! Made specifically for you. #nowyoucan

A post shared by Universal Standard (@universalstandard) on

Speaking to Glamour magazine, the brand's co-founder,  Alexandra Waldman, explained that mainstream jewellery has often presented issues for both herself and their plus-sizes customers.

“I know from personal experience that finding beautiful modern pieces of jewellery that fit and look native to my body type is nearly impossible,” she said.

 

• Why can't I find jewelry that fits without some cheap adjustable closure?#nowyoucan (launching tomorrow!)

A post shared by Universal Standard (@universalstandard) on

“Even longer necklaces don’t fall in the right spot on the front of the body -everything tends to look clipped, cheap, or semi-disposable."

“I’m a grown woman – I don’t want to wear an adjustable ring that I have to squeeze together around my finger," she reasoned.

And with clothes and jewellery under their belt, Universal Standard aren't content to sit on their laurels.

"Jewellery is just the beginning. We want women above size 10 to feel like they have options, like things are getting better all the time. That's our reason for being."

And the pieces are far from pricey, with most starting at approximately €35.00.

For most of us, our jewellery has a story.

Since her stint on Celebrity Masterchef didn't last too long, Holly Carpenter has turned her head to a more glamorous endeavour… jewellery.

Yep, the Dublin native is set to launch her own jewellery line and has teamed up with designer Nicola Shields to create the collection.

Nicola was previously the businesswoman and brains behind Pulse Accessories, and according to the Irish Mail on Sunday, Holly is "flat out" working with her.

When people travel around the world, it's not uncommon for them to miss home. Many of us have been through it.

So, when this women, Meghan Coomes, worked in TV, she wanted a constant reminder of her family for when she had to travel.

“My family and I grew up hearing about my grandparents’ torrid love affair,” she told BuzzFeed.

That's when Coomes decided that she wanted a way to immortalize the letters *and* get a wearable keepsake at the same time.

“They were long-distance dating during WWII, and they wrote each other daily while apart — three years, three months, and four days.”

And from that, Meghan got a great idea.

She decided to use her grandparents' love letters, and make them into jewelery so she'd have something special on her for when she was on the road.

“I asked my grandma if I could use one of their letters to make a bracelet, so that I always had my family with me.

It takes Coomes roughly one day to make a piece of jewelry.

“She loved the idea. I used the back page of an original letter from New Year’s Eve in 1943.”

With that, Meghan made a necklace and ring and brought it everywhere with her.

She began having people compliment her on her jewelery constantly, and after a couple of years, Forever Yours, Agnes jewelery company was born.

Then, Coomes' jewelry company Forever Yours, Agnes was born.

With her business booming, Meghan now makes a copy of the letters and adheres them on to clear glass. She then adds jewels and stones to complete each piece.

Meghan's creations are absolutely gorgeous and we just love the Notebook-style beginning to her story.

We're kinda only getting it into our heads this week that Christmas is over.

And when Christmas is over, it feels like everything else is a million miles away. Good weather will never come again, the darkness is going to stay forever, and we'll all just have to wear ugly woolly jumpers for the rest of our days.

Yep, January can be super depressing, and while we can't change the weather, we can wear beautiful god-damn jewellery that makes us look like *~queens~* from the South of France.

Earlier this month Pinterest had us swooning over its most popular wedding dress, and now the much loved image sharing site has really given us wedding fever with its favourite engagement ring.

We all know it’s the thought that counts when it comes to receiving gifts, but when jewellery reaches engagement-level importance, it sure is nice to dream about the perfect rock.

And – according to HelloGiggles – there is one engagement ring in particular that’s made its way into many people’s dreams as the Alvadora Diamond Ring has been pinned over 160,000 times.

The 18 carat white gold ring features a bezel set gem, lattice detailing and a halo of diamonds and is available for purchase from American retailer Brilliant Earth for $1,490 (that’s currently around €1,330).

The vintage inspired piece also comes in four different styles:  White gold, rose gold, yellow gold and platinum.

Previously it had been reported that the Verragio Venetian ring by Raymond Lee Jewellers was the most popular engagement style on Pinterest with 63,000 pins.

Like the Alvadora Diamond ring, the Verragio Venetian is an 18 carat white gold piece but it also boasts 0.45 carats of diamonds and costs around €3,800.

Any burglary can be scary, but when you're metres away from raiders stealing from your home, it can be even more terrifying.

That's what happened to Simon Cowell and his family in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Simon was burgled at his £10m (€13m) London home in the middle of the night as he, his girlfriend Lauren Silverman and son Eric slept inside. The raiders escaped with jewellery and cash worth a mighty six-figure sum, the Daily Mail reports.

They sneaked into the Holland Park property at 2.20am yesterday and after searching the downstairs of the house, spotted a key to a safe. 

The safe was completely emptied of cash and jewellery before the raiders fled as the police were called.

Simon only became aware of the situation when his personal bodyguard woke him up after the burglars ran.

Even after the stressful ordeal, Simon still made it to rehearsals for tonights X Factor and put on a brave face in front of the cameras as he waved a peace sign on his way out of the studio.
