Aloha from Hawaii

by Alexandra May | July 09, 2015 | 0 Comments

Continental style by way of the Pacific Islands: my latest shipment from Philippe Ferrandis's Paris workshop draws its inspiration all the way from the shores of Hawaii. Philippe's celebrated skill with colourways sees the collection's soft blues, teals and sea greens contrasted and complemented with flashes of warm coral, pale lilacs and vivid limes to create a hazy, Hawaiian-postcard colour scheme.

The earrings in the collection, though simple and unfussy, are expertly designed: a milky, opaque glass stone sits atop a glistening, intricately cut swarovski and an extra-long iridescent resin teardrop with a textured surface completes the piece. 

This gorgeous, glowing jewellery deserves to shimmer in strong summer sunlight, whether at home in the city or on holiday at the beach. It's wonderfully light to wear, so the hook fittings will not weigh heavily on pierced ears, and the clip-on earrings feature rubber pads to ensure hours of comfortable wear.

This statement necklace, with its tessellating ovals, triangles and oblongs, is a perfect piece of colourful summer jewellery, with softened neons sitting alongside perennially-fashionable pastel shades. My personal favourite, though, is this bold collar, which Philippe has given a sharp, modern edge with the addition of a chunky silver chain. 

Enjoy browsing!

Rings For Spring

by Alexandra May | February 03, 2014 | 0 Comments

Rings are back for this spring but unlike the chunky glass rings of last summer, these are Gothic and elaborate yet have a beautiful 'Victoriana' femininity about them. Pastels are one of the strongest fashion looks for spring, as well as nails, and these rings are the perfect accessory.

Our favourites include Michal Negrin Cream Vintage Rose Crystal Ring, with it's pretty rose design surrounded by colour shaded Swarovski crystals, and Vintage Rose Lace Effect Ring, embedded with enamel and surrounded by pretty milky green Swarovski crystals. Ollipop's stunning bronze and enamel Crystal Mermaid Ring, is set with tiny iridescent Swarovski crystals, and Iridescent Blue Bumble Bee Ring, is set with the sparkliest colour changing crystal stones. 

So pile the rings on this spring, and if, like in the beautiful picture above, you want to match your nails to your jewellery, you can choose from over 100 shades of nail polish at Priti NYC, who have the prettiest pastels all of which are non-toxic and long lasting.
