Coco Chanel, timeless style icon that she was, left us with a few choice sayings that we can use to emulate her effortless chic, one of which is,
"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance"
And we couldn't agree more; for day to day, work and play jewellery that works in every setting, simplicity is the key to getting a look that appears well put together, modern and elegant.
Our Gelato pieces are ideal for this aesthetic, with a choice of citrine, peridot or amethyst stones in a pretty yet understated mount these pieces are ideal for the office, the school run, a long lunch or a family day out. These stylish pieces can be worn together without looking over the top as they complement each other beautifully. Cherry, lime and orange "flavours" offer a colour to suit every style and skin tone, and if you're born in February, August or November then you can pick your own birthstone for a special personal connection with jewellery you'll love to wear every day.
Our birthstone earrings are also personal and we've got a set for virtually every month. Simple studs are so versatile, they'll brighten up an ordinary outfit, can be worn in any workplace and add a pretty accent around your face. With that personal birthstone connection these classic earrings will become a staple of your jewellery collection and a go-to piece for work and play.
We also have two other very simple stud earrings featuring deep blue lapis lazuli or aqua toned larimar, both cut in a smooth cabochon style. These gemstones are gorgeous and will really stand out with a crisp white shirt for a professional look with a little dazzle. If you love one pair of these you'll also love the other, so why not treat yourself to both blue beauties and match them to your favourite outfits.
Dangly earrings can often be quite ornate and not always the best thing to wear at work, but these deceptively simple drop earrings are simply gorgeous. The Teardrop set features two teardrop shapes formed from sterling silver, one of which hangs from the other to stunning effect, especially when you move your head. These will go easily from day to night so you can rely on these earrings to be the perfect choice for a long day – elegant, professional and incredibly flattering.
If you like a bit of sparkle on your fingers but don't want to wear fiddly rings for work that might catch on clothing or other fabrics our Snow Dome
rings are the perfect choice. Cabochon cut stones are smooth but still catch the light, and the simple modern mount lets the beautiful colours twinkle and shine. This Eternity ring is another dazzler which would be an ideal gift or a treat for you. Cubic zirconia sits in a delicate sterling silver mill-grain edged mount with a pinch detail in the centre. The fourteen dazzling stones taper to the centre and are channel set to keep the stones flush with the mount. This understated style of setting works really well for this classic, pretty ring that would make the ideal engagement ring for the modern woman or a promise ring, if engagement isn't on the cards quite yet.
Coco Chanel also had another saying,
"Lace is one of the most wonderful imitations of nature, but pearls are perfect for every occasion."
Our Full Moon collection is the epitome of versatile pearl jewellery that is absolutely perfect for any event - a quiet brunch, a glitzy wedding, a night in with friends and a good film and a bottle of wine or even a business meeting. Single freshwater pearls feature on stud earrings, a necklace and a ring accented by cubic zirconia to draw the light in and reflect it onto the glimmering lustre of the pearls. We think Coco would have approved of these pieces, and would probably have been her go-to set for effortless glamour.
Finally, this Easy Living necklace is stunning, with cubic zirconia accenting a swirling eternity shape which forms its own hanging loop. The shape is feminine but bold, the perfect statement for the modern woman to make. Polished sterling silver shines brightly to brighten your day – perhaps this will be your necklace of choice for a long day, where you'll need a little something to make you smile?
We've got plenty of other simple designs that will work brilliantly with casual and more formal outfits, all designed for the busy life the modern woman leads, juggling work, play, responsibilities and ambitions.
