A beautiful dress isn’t quite complete without accessories to match. We all know that accessories can play a huge part in refining your appearance whilst showing off your personality but at times, finding the perfect accessories that appropriately complement each other can be tricky.
We probably remember to match our shoes to our bag but what about your jewellery? In situations such as these, we would recommend having a few good go-to matching sets in your accessories collection. We love mixing-and-matching designs but jewellery sets can make your outfit look much more cohesive and sophisticated.
Van Cleef & Arpels are known for their understated and elegant designs, taking inspiration from femininity, flora and fauna. Our sophisticated ‘Flowerlace’ set, featuring a necklace, earrings and ring all in 18k white gold is the perfect fit for completing an ultra-feminine look. The simplicity in the flower designs makes this set a great complementary piece to any given outfit. This would be best-styled with an elegant up-do, allowing the jewellery to adequately stand out.
We’re in love with Cartier’s ‘Berlingot’ ring and earrings. Both of these pieces are quite the statement, set in 18k white gold and featuring round brilliant cut diamonds. The unusual off centre triangular shapes set within the paved diamond squares add a modern twist and more geometric appearance whilst the white gold accentuates the sparkle of the diamonds.
Van Cleef & Arpels’ ‘Frivole’ collection takes inspiration from nature with its jewellery featuring heart-shaped petals. Our ‘Frivole Between the Finger’ ring is comprised of round brilliant cut diamonds mounted onto two flowers. The ‘9 Flower Frivole’ necklace almost resembles the delicateness of a daisy chain, with small diamond flowers fastened together by a secure push button clasp.
Chanel’s Baroque collection transports you to another world with its striking amethysts. Our Baroque necklace, earrings and bracelet all feature a central amethyst stone, with peridot and aquamarine on either side. Set in 18k yellow gold, these pieces exude a regal style with an exotic appearance. This Byzantine-inspired collection is a true symbol of opulence. These pieces have been discontinued by Chanel, so we recommend getting your hands on this set while you still can.
Cartier’s iconic Panthère collection was designed for the daring, bold and modern woman, featuring a striking panther in all of its designs. Our Panthère pendant necklace has a ying-yang style design, with a combination of diamonds, emeralds and onyx set in 18k white gold. The matching bracelet has a panther set on black material band, exuding an extremely modern and edgy look. This Panthère set perfectly doubles up for both formal and semi-formal evening occasions.
Our Tiffany & Co. bracelet from their Elsa Peretti Diamonds By The Yard collection is a good choice for those who prefer fine jewellery over louder statement pieces. Elsa Peretti is one of Tiffany & Co.’s celebrated designers, with some of her collections featured in the British Museum. Tiffany & Co.’s Platinum Diamond Drop earrings and T-drop necklace from their Jazz collection works harmoniously with Peretti’s delicate bracelet design.
Our 18k Yellow Gold ‘Love’ bracelet and earrings from Cartier are simplistic in design yet hold an edge. Featuring the signature ‘love’ screw engraving and set in 18k yellow gold, these pieces double up with a romantic yet vintage look. Due to the understated, classic design, and intimate appeal, the range is made to be worn everyday to symbolise the sentimental relationship between the giftee and gifter. This pair in pure gold are more understated than other versions set with diamonds, and offer a subtle but recognisable element of chic to any outfit.
Can’t decide between white or yellow gold? Bulgari solves this problem for you with their unique 18k white and yellow gold bangle. We recommend pairing this with the matching earrings, which not only feature yellow and white gold, but rose gold too! Bulgari are simply spoiling us for choice here.
No matter what your preference is, there are many jewellery sets out there to suit every personality, event and time. From timeless designs, intricate flower pieces to chunkier statements. You simply can’t go wrong with a reliable coordinated set in your assemblage.
