Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Well if you feel a little worse for wares and could do with a double whiskey on the rocks, a Martini…shaken not stirred, as well as a mini facelift, then you won't want to hear the mirror’s dreaded answer. We are more than halfway into 2017, but thats the time when we find ourselves looking, and feeling a little, well, un-glam. Think about it - career;  if you have kids there is that incredible challenge of being a mom, while rediscovering your inner glam without completely losing yourself in the process. Me time, a way of life in Europe has finally caught on with South African women, it is not only celebrated, but encouraged. Remember that before you were a career girl, a  wife, a mother, or a partner; you were just you and sometimes you need a little reminder of who that person was - and still is. 


Rave Review first fell in love with Nomination Italy a few years back. They launched their gorgeous Composable bracelets which you could create yourself and there was and still is a charm for every milestone and occasion. They’ve grown in leaps and bounds ever since, adding a stunning array of necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and even watches into their range.  All their jewellery is made with love, and as their founder, Paolo Gensini puts it, “I wanted to create a precious  bracelet for everyone”. And boy did he deliver on that promise. His source of inspiration and creativity has and always will be, Italy. From humble beginnings in Florence, Italy 1980, Paolo Gensini gained knowledge as a goldsmith, and this intuitive gift would soon change not only his life forever, but the jewelry industry worldwide. His vision? To create innovative pieces for both men and woman of all ages, and to suit all budgets.

Just like health insurance and a good education, every woman has the right to own a piece or two of beautiful and elegant - BLING. The options from Nomination Italy are endless.
