Little Gem

It’s not often you find a true treasure chest spilling with all things sparkly. We’ll let you in to our little secret…

Published on August 11th 2006.


Little Gem

Silver bits, trinkets, chiffon ribbon, sparkly rings and thankfully no bling. It sounds remarkably like a song from the Sound of Music when it is in fact the little gem of a jewellery shop Mesh 925. Just as kitch, girly and sentimental but thankfully no Julie Andrews or Lederhosen.

Normally I would be venturing to market stalls or a trip to the craft centre to pick up adorable jewellery that I would femininely adorn my apartment with, never mind decorate my neck, so I was understandably shocked to find myself in Afflecks. Yes the place of Goths, tattoos, rubber, novelty condoms, the place from which parents ban their teenagers, for fear of them coming home with pierced genitalia.

Mesh 925, which is also an online at www.mesh925.com sits prettily and completely aloof to the underworld. But despite its sophistication and showcasing of ornate rose quart, marquisette silver, hand enamelled jewellery and fresh water pearls threaded through silk chiffon, its prices are humbling.

Lisa, who is the creativity behind Mesh925 explains: “It always shocks me how shops triple the prices. I’ve worked in jewellery for many years and I know how much it should be.”

The prices at Mesh925 range from trendy, cute little accessories like earrings and toerings for £2.59 (I squealed excitedly at a pair of yellow, sparkly sandal earrings straight out of Sex and the City) stretching into the hundreds for more exclusive stone based jewellery, sourced from all over the world. There’s also the new funky Phillipe Stark watches on display and the oh so fine Jocasi bags and belts, which are 10 per cent cheaper than the high street.

Mesh 925 are offering 20 percent off all jewellery and 10 per cent off Jocasi belts (only) both online and at the shop for the next month. To find out how to get 20 per cent off, click here and enter your details.

Mesh925 is a sassy little treasure chest and if you fancy foxy little pieces that make you go “ooh” and “aw” then pop on your kitten heels and totter over to the Northern Quarter.

Mesh925 is on 1st Floor, Afflecks Palace, Church Street, Manchester
