It is no secret that I love jewellery from the quirky signature Barbie necklaces or the laser-cut animals from Maggie Angus, adorable charms from Thomas Sabo, and even a colourful watch or two from Ice-Watch, so when Ernest Jones sent me over their trends lookbook for spring/summer it was heavenly. Ernest Jones have picked out six trends, from the roaring twenties to the flirty fifties, mighty brights vs sorbet shades, molten metallics and gorgeous prints, and there really is something from everyone, and if like me you love colour then you’ll be extra happy.
To celebrate the awesome collection they asked me to create my ultimate wishlist, I have to warn you some of the pieces I chose are pretty expensive, but come on what are wishlists for it not to dream, but there is an upside of wishing as Ernest Jones has created a Facebook app where you could win your wishlist, all you have to do is ‘like’ items on their website and it takes them directly to the app.
So here are my five sparkling wishes:
1. Cacherel sterling silver red enamel poppy bracelet, £75 - I love simple mixed in with cute and these poppy charms are adorable and would work as an everyday bracelet, plus I am starting off small as this beauty is the cheapest on my wishlist!!!
2. Most of my jewellery is either silver or white gold, and this Cacharel sterling silver cubic zirconia leaf necklace, £135 really stood out because of the simple chain teamed with the textured leafs and the drop necklace detail makes it stand out for me.
3. and 4. is the battle of the watches, as basically I couldn’t decide between the soft sorbet purple Michael Kors watch, £195, and the mighty brights Raymond Weil ‘Maestro’ watch with white mother of pearl diamond dot dial and pink leather strap, £1,475. Yep, I am a lover of both extremes – cute vs bright, and affordable vs serious investment!!!
5. Finishing off my wishlist is the most expensive, but also the most divine ring I have ever seen, the Le Vian 14ct white gold and chocolate diamond ring, which retails at £2,699, but what a beauty this statement ring is. It has an old-Hollywood feel to it, the right amount of vintage glamour, and bling with those gorgeous diamonds that you want from a cocktail ring. Now if only I can win the lottery to buy it.
