We are changing the way we serve you in Perth

Date Added: June 24, 2015


Dear WA customers,

I would like to say a big thank you to each and every one of you for making the last five years so wonderful.

I am extremely delighted to be part of your special journey from designing, crafting and finally seeing the sparkles come to life.

Thank you for the amazing outpour of well wishes during the last couple of weeks. Thank you for your calls, e-mails, chocolates and gifts. It is so beautiful to receive so much comfort and encouragement, thank you!

Our five years lease is up and we can no longer can continue to lease with the exorbitant rent. It is extremely sad that we could not come to terms with the landlord in Carillon City, and it's also really sad to see other local businesses in Carillon shutting their doors as well. 

The great news is, we have decided to focus more online and for Western Australia customers, I am still available by appointment only in Perth, from this Monday 6th of July.

 I look forward to meeting with you again and discussing your next special piece of jewellery.

With heartfelt thanks,

Aggie

Dear Aggie & Jessie,
 
I'm sorry to hear Moi Moi's is leaving Perth.  It is so sad to hear the news but I wish you
all well in your new venture and I thank you for the wonderful jewellery I have bought
and love wearing.  It was lovely coming into your store and seeing the amazing arrangement
of rings (my speciality) & earrings.  I especially loved the wonderful friendly service that both
you gave me and I know you would have treated everyone the same. 
 
I'm sending you my good bye and just wish you all the very, very best in your future endeavours.
 
Take care and best wishes,
 
Naomi Stoneham.

Hi,

It is a sad day today 13th June 2015 as Perth loses its Moi Moi store, and the services of your two beautiful, dedicated staff, Jessie & Aggie - they have been a real asset to your company, as they have both promoted your products with such personality & goodwill.

As a regular customer who has bought & taken your products to places such as Europe & Indonesia & WA as gifts for family & friends - all of whom have remarked on the unique quality of your jewellery.

I understand the business reasons of the store closure due to circumstances beyond owner control but sincerely hope that in the not too distant future we may see Moi Moi with a flagship store in Perth, and would request that the ladies may even be a part of this.

Kind regards & best wishes to you all,

John McGowan.

Mother’s Day Competition: behind the scenes

Date Added: April 17, 2015

 

Most of us enjoy a festive atmosphere – whether it is in memorial or celebration of important occasions. The modern day calendar certainly has a number of important dates to be remembered. One in particular, provides an opportunity for us to express our appreciation and gratitude to our great mums on the wonderful Mother’s Day.

 I was fortunate enough to be part of a photo-shoot when we decided to create a wonderful experience this year for Mother’s day, combining divine jewels with mouth-watering delicacies. What else can beat a workday where I’m dressed in beautiful jewellery whilst elegantly sampling savouries and sweets in the Palace Tea Room! 

I have to admit, high tea experiences always woos me with the delightful food served on oh-so-pretty chinaware. We started off the shoot by choosing the china set from a range of eye-candy colours with delicate prints – and the task being as difficult as it was, we settled for one of each colours in the end! As our cake tier arrives, both my photographer and I were resisting hard forgetting about the task on hand and just enjoying the food!

We poured rose-colour tea into the cups and posed with the matching “Marlene” pink diamond ring; delicately holding onto the folk that is an inch away from the gorgeous cakes and be still in motion while the stunning tennis bracelet drapes over my wrist; and just ever-so-lightly picking up the mouth-watering macaroon while the “Celeste” ring shines brightly on my finger. 

It was fun to be a hand model, and the experience was simply delightful. Moi Moi is now also giving two lucky winners the experience of a beautiful high tea for two in the spectacular QVB Palace Tea Room – as well as a travel jewellery case each! Simply tell us “what is the best advice your mother has ever taught you” either through Facebook or our website user registration. You can enter the competition here:  

Good luck!

Citrine Beauty

Date Added: April 7, 2015
 




 

 

A lovely client of ours was fortunate to be given an enormous Citrine for Christmas from her husband. 

Purchased in New York, the incredible Citrine jewel was a very sizeable 97 Carats!

They came to visit us in the store over New Years to have it set into a pendant. 

The clients wish was to be able to wear the pendant on a long chain in winter over dark roll neckjumpers.

I designed for her a piece which was two-toned.  We surrounded the Citrine with white gold and at four points, we set yellow gold bezel Moissanite stones, with an extra stone at the top on the bail.

The client was thrilled with how it turned out.  It was exactly how she envisaged it.   We love the modern Italianate feel it has and its WOW factor.   The result is a standout piece of heirloom jewellery that will always be fun to wear.

I love coloured stones, I think you can be very playful with the way you wear them and you can get away with wearing big stones. 

If you have a favourite coloured stone you would like to set or would like us to source for you, we would be thrilled to work on this special project with you.  Please visit us in store or e-mail info@moimoi.com.au

Russian Wedding Rings

Date Added: March 27, 2015
 


 

Russian wedding rings (also known as Trinity, Trilogy or Puzzle rings) are a style of three intertwining rings to create one ring, and represent holy matrimony. It is mostly worn on the ladies right hand.

Traditionally, the three rings are different coloured gold’s of yellow, rose and white gold.
All three bands together represent the Holy Trinity: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

     
 

As with many traditional rings, there are always the modern versions. It’s quite common to now have stones in the bands or engraving. You can also have just two bands, or four, five, six or more bands intertwine, and they don’t need to be three different golds. Some people opt for all white, or white and yellow bands only. 

We have recently had two customers do their own take on the Russian wedding ring design for dress rings, and we custom made them with beautiful results: 

Our first client added diamonds and engraving to her bands. She had found the rolling of the intertwining rings uncomfortable to wear, and so she and wanted the rings separate to wear as a stack.

Our second client wanted one ring, joined at the base and have the three bands separated at the side of the ring to be intertwining at the top. She added pink sapphires and Moissanite to each ‘ring’.

Traditional Russian wedders, or modern takes: both look great, but what's your pick?
