I’m a bit of a jewellery nut, which I think is putting it nicely and I’m OK with. My husband thinks I’m a kleptomaniac or magpie, attracted to anything shiny which is also fair, but to me it’s incredible what good jewellery can do for your outfit and the confidence it gives in feeling like your outfit is complete.
Some of you might know I’m a guest presenter at QVC and I get to meet some wonderful people from some fantastic brands. The other week I met Helen from Pilgrim Jewellery – she is awesome! You know when you meet someone and feel like you already know them, that’s how I felt with Helen. I’d heard of Pilgrim, you can find their jewellery in big high street department stores like Debenhams and House of Fraser to name two, at online shopping giant ASOS and at a whole host of cool independents, but I didn’t realise that the brands roots were of the supercool scandi kind.
Helen talked me through a bit more about the brand and when she showed me the pieces, and encouraged me to wear something for the QVC show we were on together, I was hooked!
Set up 30 years ago Pilgrim is still a family run business with a conscience and heart. They provide funds to various charities, projects and trusts where possible and all their jewellery is hand-made, which means you’re getting authentic, true pieces that hold on to the designers original influences and in doing so, create beautiful jewellery. I also think the prices are spot on and easy on the bank balance, especially bearing in mind you’re getting something handmade. What more could you ask for?
Scandi style is most definitely at the forefront of fashion. Stockholm Fashion Week is hotly attended by fashion elite from all over the world who want to catch a glimpse of the up and coming brands, well known big hitters and of course the elite street stylers, bloggers and Insta fashionistas.
Pilgrim manages to mix this Scandi cool, minimalist style with a free-spirited, boho edge, for me the mix couldn’t be more perfect. This means you have items of jewellery that will compliment your everyday jeans and tee combo, to festival and holiday essentials that’ll look great worn on the beach or adorning your wrists as your through your arms up to the beat at the main stage.
I bagged myself this coin detail bracelet and it won’t leave my arm whilst I’m in Ibiza, it’ll come from beach to bar and probably bed it’s that comfortable to wear, but there is much more to the collection including eye catching rings, crystal pendents, quirky earrings and the watches, these are so on trend right now. Big, oversized, minimal faces teamed with a sleek strap make these the perfect accompaniment for layers and layers of bracelets this summer, or keep it pure and clean and let the watch speak for itself.
Here are my favourites from the Summer collection, I’ve had a peak at the AW16 collection too and though I’m not wishing the summer away we’re in for a serious treat.
