It's here! The shop recently received a bounty of Trousseau jewellery, 25 pieces of which are now available to buy online in the New Arrivals section.
Trousseau is the creation of young Indian jeweller and entrepreneur Urvi Vora. The company's archaic French name (translated: 'the bundle of possessions that a bride assembles for her marriage') refers to a series of events that inspired Urvi to set up the company: a realisation she had, whilst helping a friend shop for her wedding, that few of the products available to buy were personalised or remotely unique. This led to her decision to make all Trousseau creations either bespoke or in small quantities, thereby retaining the work's individuality.
The Trousseau range's nod to traditional Indian jewellery is clear, but Urvi's designs are neater and cleaner than their predecessors. Bold shapes and sharp lines give her pieces a modern feel, and their simplicity means they're very wearable - my customers tell me they're able to match their Trousseau jewellery with plenty of different outfits.
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.
