I adore gemstones and they are set to be one of the big trends for this spring/summer. Earrings from Trousseau have just arrived and it's stunning. Created by jewellery designer Urvi Vora, Trousseau has an ethnic twist inspired by the raw stones that she comes across. Each piece is one-off and unique.
All handmade in India, each piece of jewellery is set with Drewsie or Agate stones in pretty shades of yellow, pink, white, turquoise and green. These earrings will look divine with summer dresses or a simple blouse, as each piece is a real statement piece.
Venezuelan-born Ricardo Douaihi works from his studio in Madrid, where he creates these extraordinary lace necklaces and hair clips all by hand. The lace is stiffened and embroidered with semi precious stones, mother of pearl or glass beads, and tiny Swarovski crystals.
These individual works of art are big and dramatic, but are extremely lightweight to wear. Douaihi's statement necklaces hang from pretty ribbons and look stunning against a plain cashmere jumper or white shirt. Or, dare we say it, imagine them against a simple black top for the festive season!
With his Spanish influence, Douaihi knows how to make a hair clip that actually holds huge amounts of hair, think of all those beautiful Flamenco dancers. There is nothing more frustrating than a hair clip that looks beautiful but you can't wear because it won't hold your hair. But not only that, they are a statement piece in themselves, the perfect hair jewels.
