Perhaps the most notable Scot of all time, the legacy of Robert Burns – known affectionately as Rabbie Burns – is one of magnificence. His work acts as a testament to the literary brilliance woven into Scotland’s rich history. As a company incredibly proud to be Scottish, and with Burns Night approaching its only appropriate that we celebrate! Join us in paying tribute to Scotland’s National Bard with a selection of our tartan treasures.

Tartan treasures take many forms in our range of earrings, whether it be charming heart shaped studs, plaid beads or the forever-chic acrylic hoops, you’re guaranteed to be talk of the dinner table in some jazzy Joe Cool jewellery. Pair them with our Plaid Purses , available in several distinct colourways that put a contemporary twist on the traditional tartan check.

Signature Joe Cool socks also get the tartan treatment. An earthy mustard and khaki check recall the palette of Scottish landscapes whilst the bodacious marriage of sage and lilac are perfect for those of an adventurous persuasion. The classic chocolate-cream combo offers a more lax approach to burns night attire whereas the the traditional navy and forest green pair are truly tartan treasures. Acrylic bangles decorated in a tartan print will level up any Burns Night ensemble, and with six stylish variants you’d be a fool not to pick one up!

The classic ‘Stewart’ tartan is found on an adorable alice band and telescopic umbrella – it doesn’t get more Scottish than a tartan brolly! Playful pistachio plaid adorns one of our show-stopping scarfs – even more fabulous when paired with our equally vibrant cotton bracelet.

Hip hearts and hot lips for a cool Valentine

Hearts are hip at Joe shop and, with Valentines day fast approaching, now is the time to really enjoy this emblematic symbol of love. There’s no need to merely settle for the classic red heart of years gone by. Why not have fun with gorgeous striped textile heart earring, bright ‘petit polka dot’ hearts, filigree metal and gleaming enamel?

Hearts come as tiny shiny stud earrings in red,black,pink and white or as ‘miss-matched’, ‘best friend’ studs – a perfect pairing. For a super cool look try line art heart earrings and heart hands, both in matt silver or gold finish. ‘Outline’ styles are both arty and elegant with rings and earrings in minimalist metal.

A more subtle approach still, is the ‘heartbeat’ trio of ring, bracelet and choker, an image of particular poignancy in these difficult days of loss and love. ‘Love letters’, in a similar genre, is a crazy hoop earring with the ‘L’ word cleverly work into what appears at first to be an abstract looping design. Again, all come in a choice of shiny silver or gold finish metal.

Socks feature glorious rainbow hearts in a black or grey option. Classic red on black are firm favourites at any time of the year and pastel hearts are a new addition.

Arty hearty has to be the fabulous ‘Keith Haring’ inspired ‘untitled (heart) sock and ‘pop art crowd’. An iconic artist giving this iconic symbol yet another twist!
