The American Institution of the High School Prom has now become tradition here.
The Prom season is upon us and the excitement is building. How and when did that happen? What happened to the school disco in the gym hall?
The first recorded account of a prom as we know it was by a student at Amherst College, Massachusetts, in 1894, who described what would now be recognised as a formal senior ball. Proms on the other hand, have evolved from something traditional to something decadent.
The very idea of a school leavers’ prom has invoked ideas of celebrity and rockstar lifestyle. The more expensive the dress and the flashier the limo, the better,
Girls (or their parents) are buying dresses worth £800-£1000 or even more, and paying significant amounts of money in order to get their hair styled and nails manicured like a Hollywood celebrity attending an awards ceremony or a film premiere. Add to this the cost of jewellery, photography and limo hire, it's an expensive rite of passage!
We can bemoan the expense and the Americanisation - but then we see the dresses (swoon) and just bask in their gorgeousness!
Here are some of my favourites .......
Short or long?
Not for the shrinking violet!
Words fail me - this is just gorgeous!
Sweet, traditional Prom style
Love love love this one!
Maybe mums get so into their daughters' Prom is because like me they never got the opportunity to wear dresses like this or have the whole celebrity for a day experience.
We have spent an enjoyable morning viewing the latest offerings from our popular Dansk range of fashion jewellery.
It's always a pleasure to see the Dansk agent Kerri and have a good old catch up whilst oohing and ahhing over gorgeous jewellery.
You can view the catalogue here
See if you can guess what we've ordered.
Your old favourites along with some fabby new statement necklaces, rings and bracelets will be in store and online soon.
There will also be some exciting additions to the Dansk range - not giving anything away just yet but it's NOT jewellery!
Watch out for more news soon x

Valentine's Day can be a touchy subject.

We would like to say say a HUGE thanks to all who came to our Exclusive Pebblettes Xmas Party last night.
For those of you that sadly couldn't make it here is a wee taster of the fun filled night of exclusive discounts and surprise extra savings (guests pulled a cracker at the till to find out how much extra discount they would get - some people saved an additional 25%!!). Santa himself even made an appearance bearing gifts for lucky guests!
Among the most popular items were our Fabulous Rew scarves.
The edgy style of Bjorg caught the eye of many of our guests.
Thank you again to everyone that helped to make it such a memorable evening, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
