MARINE INSPIRED JEWELLERY

by Alexandra May | June 02, 2015 | 0 Comments

Ever since Vogue reported that nautical-themed jewellery was set to be big this summer, I've been keeping an eye out for any pieces containing pretty pearls, blue gems and iridescent shells. 

Those who want to give a subtle but colourful nod to the sea trend will love the ocean-blue hues that can be found in Philippe Ferrandis's collection, while fans of statement jewellery won't go unnoticed in these offbeat fish pendant earrings from my long-time favourite, Ayala Bar. Madrid-based designer, Ricardo Douahi, features sea colours in these nature-inspired, hand-embroidered earrings that recall beautiful ocean flora.

Need something more flamboyant? I was pleased to discover that my latest delivery of Askew London jewellery contained a number of marine inspired pieces, each one replete with the usual Askew sparkle, detail and decoration. While Sue Askew's work is admired by designer jewellery fans worldwide, each of these pieces is part of a very limited run, making them perfect for those who want something that's both high-fashion and one-of-a-kind. These three are fit for a mermaid princess:

This Summer's Statement Piece: The Crystal Necklace

by Alexandra May | May 30, 2014 | 0 Comments

There are times when, despite the beautiful photography, a piece of jewellery looks even more stunning in the flesh. This is one of those times. These new necklaces, from Anton Heunis's 'Les Demoiselles' collection are just incredible!

Just look at the detail, the sparkling clear, lemon, violet, pink and emerald teardrop Swarovski crystals on this Lemon Vintage Heart Cluster Pendant Necklace (above and below), surrounding an original large lemon yellow vintage crystal heart. Or the Multicoloured Triple Vintage Heart Crystal Necklace, set with three original vintage heart crystal stones in emerald green, dark red and pale pink. 

If you prefer more gold and little less sparkle, the Anton Heunis 'Les Demoiselles' Vintage Heart Gold Knot Long Pendant Necklace, is the epitome of style and glam, with it's chunky gold plated box chain and Swarovski crystals.

These necklaces really do need to be seen to be believed!
