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

A Very Lanvin Christmas
Alber Elbaz of Lanvin has designed Claridge’s iconic Christmas tree. Elbaz’s darling sketch of his exquisite Christmas vision, pictured right, has been unveiled and it looks positively Lanvin perfection!
Of being given the Christmas tree honor, Elbaz said: “The concept of the Christmas Tree decoration is to create an installation that carries the spirit of Lanvin, an infusion of tradition and modernity at the same time. The tree is to emanate and bring heartwarming joy to all who work and stay as guests at Claridge’s hotel: It’s my way to wish them a very Merry Christmas.”
The 2009 and 2010 Claridge’s Christmas trees were Dior inspired and created by John Galliano. The Lanvin tree will be unveiled on November 22nd and will be on display in the iconic lobby until January 2nd.
Are you beginning to feel the festive Christmas spirit? xx
