Thomas Sabo have been on my radar for a number of years, back to my university days when I spent hours trawling fashion magazines and googling the advertisements.
Dann bought me one of their charm bracelets for a birthday one year because I simply fell in love with them and the amazing selection of charms available. But I have to admit, since then, I’ve kind of put my love of jewellery to one side, and almost forgotten about them as a brand.
Recently Thomas Sabo has had a little refocus I guess is the best word, and with the launch of their new Autumn and Winter collections, they asked the Sotonbloggers to join them for brunch at their Westquay store.
As I said, I’ve always really loved their charms collection – it has to be one of the most extensive around, but it was really interesting to see some of the other beautiful collections and ranges that Thomas Sabo now make. Alongside the Charm Club, they also have a beads collection. Think Pandora bracelets, but with more intricate and delicate designs. The two collections really compliment each other and are iconically Thomas Sabo in style. What I really love about these is that the prices are really reasonable for such beautifully crafted jewellery, with beads and charms starting at £21.95.
We were also introduced to some of their lesser known collections too, which were so interesting and unique. The Diamond Collection is a sophisticated collection of necklaces, bracelets and rings. It’s made up of a number of smaller collections with different design inspirations including the understated and delicate Triangle Collection. This range is all about layering and stacking which I adore. I think it might be my favourite collection of the lot, and has a really young and modern feel to it.
The Together collection is focused on love and is a truly classic collection and perfect for the wedded couple to be!
And lastly I have to share with you Thomas Sabo’s cutest collection, the Love Coins. These little pendants are basically the perfect gift for a loved one, or for yourself!! Starting at £25.95 for a plain coin, they can be engraved free of charge, in-store, in minutes, from a huge range of symbols.
The Southampton store gave us the chance to try out the machine ourselves with the infinity or tree if life pendants. They can engrave up to three symbols on one side, so I opted for R, a heart symbol, and D. It literally took two minutes to set up and engrave – I spent more time choosing the design than it actually being engraved!!

I have to admit after spending time with the amazing team at Thomas Sabo and seeing the collections up close, I have definitely fallen back in love with the brand. But don’t just take my word for it, go check out their site for all their beautiful jewellery and watches.
Thank you to Thomas Sabo for a wonderful morning, and putting on such a great event as well as letting us take home some fab goodies, and to the Sotobloggers for organising.
