The Pearl Edit

There are few things as timeless as pearls. They suit any style, adapt to every situation and always bring a dash of luxury however you choose to wear them. They are the Marilyn Monroe of the jewellery world – iconic and undying. Whether you like your pearls chunky and individual or lined up neatly on a string, here are a few of our picks and how we would style them.

Three Pearls Ear Threads gold plated

These ear threads simply drip luxury. The gold really brings out the lustre of the pearls and the threads themselves dangle so effortlessly from your ear to enhance the pearls’ natural elegance. Pair with a high collar and cashmere for an opulent yet practical autumn look.

 

Single Pearl Necklace

Classic and minimalist, this pearl necklace is an essential item for your collection. It provides the perfect lift to your look, elevating it above the usual humdrum. Choose this if your style is more concise than outlandish and style it as we have here, with simple textures and clean lines.

Mixed Colour Pearl Earrings Studs gold plated

Mixed Colour Pearl Earrings

This gorgeous cluster of pearls are exquisitely delicate with a wonderful sense of movement. The colours of the pearls range from white to sensuous pink allowing for dimensions of lustrous colour to play across your cheekbones. They would make a wonderful gift, saying that person is special and unique just like each of the pearls in these clusters and that they deserve something as beautiful as they are. Style with pale creams and ivories, crepe and chiffon.

 

Two Pearl Necklace gold plated
Three Pearl Dangle Bracelet

Pair as we have here with our two pearl necklace for a combination just dripping with lustre. This bracelet is absolutely stunning in every way, from the satellite chain to the subtle glimmers from each of the pearls. Combine with a delicate evening look or switch things up with a leather jacket, t-shirt and jeans for all the rebels out there.

 

Pearl Trapeze Dangle Earrings

Break off from tradition with these fantastic earrings, full of potential movement and dramatic angles. Allow these to frame your face with their three pearls all in a line, swinging wonderfully as you turn your head. These will be the ones you obsess over, wear day in and night out, for that feeling that today you’ve totally got this. Wear with low cut ‘v’s and plunge necklines, long-line necklaces and sharp tailored jackets.

 

Pearl Disc Necklace on model

Own the room with this statement piece, a large pink pearl disk on a golden chain. This pearl is certainly not for the faint of heart though it oozes confidence, glamour and unapologetic opulence.  Personalise with a crystal paved initial for a touch of individuality. Combine with crisp cotton or silk, subdued colours and bold cuts. To emphasize the dusky pink tones of the pearl try floral motifs.

Be Eco-Friendly this Bonfire Night

We know it can be difficult, especially during these big annual events to keep the environment in mind so we have collected our favourite ideas together.

Only use natural materials

Plastics and other man-made materials such as polyester clothes fibres can be very damaging especially when burnt, not to mention it is illegal to burn many substances such as oil and rubber. Keep this in mind whilst making your Guy Fawkes – use natural fibre clothing, straw and untreated wood to produce the models. Not only will this be better for the environment but it will also help to protect the health of those around you and will result in a much brighter, more satisfying flame!

Eco-friendly fireworks

Fireworks an often damage the environment through the release of harmful toxins that they contain and the remains of the fireworks that fall to the ground. The good news is that ‘green’ fireworks do exist! These contain less dangerous chemicals and produce less waste once they have been used. Low noise fireworks are also available from many retailers which help local wildlife and pets from becoming highly distressed during this busy night.

Watch out for animals

Many animals such as hedgehogs and birds seek refuge and shelter in log piles. Without careful checking of bonfires these animals could be harmed once they have been lit. To minimise this bonfires should be made close to the time of burning as possible.

 

Most importantly, enjoy this bright and colourful celebration!
