NEW IN: Ricardo Douaihi Necklaces and Hair Clips

by Alexandra May | October 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

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.

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!
