The Statement Piece

With the festive season just around the corner, what better way to make a glamorous entrance then with a statement piece of exquisite jewels?

From diamonds to emeralds and sapphires, glisten with irresistible sparkle this Christmas season.

Decked out in some extraordinary gems for Vogue Russia, this editorial featuring the beautiful Jacquelyn Jablonski, captures the innate luxury and grandeur of precious jewels.

But you needn’t break the bank to achieve the decedent splendour of a statement jewellery piece. Costume jewellery can be just as enchanting and beguiling in beauty.

“Costume jewellery is not made to give women an aura of wealth, but to make them beautiful.”

– Coco Chanel

The illustrious Coco Chanel herself was very fond of costume pieces and greatly popularised the use of faux stones, pearls and metals in her iconic pieces {even though she had quite the collection of precious gems}.

Favouring multi-coloured semi-precious stones – such as aquamarine, topaz and amethyst – Chanel would make the stones emphatically larger and bolder in colour for that added drama and mystique. She first introduced costume jewellery to her label in the 1920’s – the simplicity and elegance of her ‘little black dress’ the perfect blank canvas for lavish gems and jewels…

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! xx

Olympic Metallics

Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…

All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.

While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.

And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…

Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

The Statement Necklace

A delicate diamond or pearl necklace is a style must-have.

As Holly Golightly so elegantly says in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, “…Go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there.” Jewellery is a key ingredient in any look and as outlined by Miss Golightly, it can also significantly improve your mood.

Exuding elegance and sophistication, a delicate necklace is a style signature. Instantly making a statement about your personality and style, a dainty pendant and chain is considered a ‘wardrobe’ must-have.

It is a necklace you can wear everyday with almost anything. From a simple white tee to a pretty cocktail dress – a delicate chain and pendant will take you from day to night.

A signature pendant proclaims your personal style. Which is your favourite? xx
