This morning I had the chance to meet with the the lovely ladies behind luxury jewellry brand Astley Clarke at the oh so posh Arts Club in Mayfair. It was the perfect location for the extensive showcase of absolutely gorgeous pieces from a variety of designers that are available from the brand. While I consider myself a bit of a costume jewellery freak, when it comes to the finer things in life – be it rose gold, platinum and precious stones, my enthusiasm is still high, but knowledge is definitely basic. Enter, the experts of Astley Clarke!
One of the many things I loved about this morning is that as I was walked through all the different pieces of each collection, I was introduced to a variety of gemstones and diamonds (hello GREY diamond) I had never even heard of. Now I know their names and I want them all. But the creativity does not stop here. Everything from the way they gems have been cut (hello diamond slice) to the formation of the inside of a ring (super comfortable tempo collection) reinforces the fact that the designers behind Astley Clarke not only consider the way a piece of jewellry looks, but how it feels to wear it so that everything sits just right, feels divine and looks, of course, gorgeous.
Another fantastic thing about these pieces is the fact that they belong to a system where you can mix and match. For example, a number of the rings across collections such as the Tempo, the Colour, and even the fine diamond bands can all fit seamlessly together for the perfect stack. This is officially my new obsession. Mix casual enamel rings with fine diamonds without a second thought for a truly fresh and modern look.
Last but not least, the bespoke jewellery design service is definitely worth a mention (both to you and your other halves!) For those of you who are looking for something truly unique, whether it’s made from scratch or perhaps with a stone that is an heirloom but needs an updated look – this is the place to go to get exactly what you’ve always dreamed of.
Providers of all things pretty and cool, I’ve included a few more of my favourite pieces below for you to feast your eyes on. Perfect for engagement rings, wedding bands or bridesmaid gifts, there is a little something for everyone and definitely worth checking out! Head on over to the brand new shiny website for more details.
The Glowing Heart Ring is the perfect modern gift for your for your girls or even for the funky contemporary bride to be. The ring features a heart silhouette in fluorescent glow in the dark ceramic – how’s that for something different?
The Falling Leaf Eternity Ring works perfectly as a wedding band and looks exquisite when stacked.
The Micro Heart Ring is a super sweet option to give your bridesmaids as a thank you gift and also great to stack with other pieces.
I love the delicate yet graphic nature of the Princess Diamond Ring.
Last but not least, this Round Eternity Ring is definitely on my wish list of sparkles. Another great piece for stacking and standing out.
