Finishing Touches: Pieces of Silver

Screen Shot 2021 05 26 at 11.39.39

Style endures, and so does jewellery. Invest in some statement pieces because apart from anything else, it’s fun to embellish. Silver jewellery comes into its own in summertime and here is our seasonal selection.

We love this simple necklace by Danish ‘affordable luxury’ jeweller Sif Jakobs. In our opinion, there’s more than a nod here to the classic dog tags, but luxed-up. Less is more and the appealing simplicity of this solid silver pendant is timeless. Pendant Turni Pianura


A signet ring embodies old-school men’s jewellery, but Thomas Sabo’s reassuringly weighty Elements of Nature ring is anything but traditional. Crafted from blackened silver with 18k gold details, the multi-layered design showcases the signs of the zodiac and its four elements, taking this firmly into new age territory.


The Royal British Legion are celebrating their centenary in 2021 and have partnered with watchmakers AVI8 to create a limited-edition piece for the charity which supports both serving and ex-serving members of the British Army, The Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force and their families. The striking design mirrors the gauges and readouts of the iconic Spitfire, after which it is named, and both the dial and the crown feature a trademarked two-petal poppy, a symbol of remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.

The twin influences of natural forms and architecture are clearly apparent in the powerful creations of Lou Gillet, jeweller and silversmith behind Atlantic Design Studio. These cufflinks are a case in point: handmade to order, the solid silver squares could have been struck by some force of nature to create their uniquely distinctive adapted shape.


Meticulous craftsmanship has gone into the creation of this ring from Balinese jewellery designers, Nusa, who draw on the cultural heritage of the island and provide artisans with sustainable employment, allowing them a viable alternative to the tourist industry as a means of employment. The Denpasar ring is handwoven from strands of pure silver.


Closer to home, All Saints’ jewellery is always worth checking out. The tightly curated collection of pieces maintains their effortless aesthetic, as seen in the Limited Edition Flex Sterling Silver bracelet. We love that oversized hook closure, which adds quirky detail and the warm silver finish will suit all skin tones.


If ever a piece qualified for outlier status it would be the Computron by Bulova. Yes, it’s gold but there should always be an exception to every rule. And exceptional is perhaps the best word to describe this throwback digital delight. The face is on an angle (quite useful we imagine for checking the time when meetings are dragging on) and the blinding, blinging gold finish marries perfectly with the anachronistic nostalgia vibe – although it is also available in silver finish.

Pineapple is my pick of the bunch this month. Rich in enzymes, this is a super-fruit worthy of its moment in the May sun.

Although at time of writing we’ve experienced both sunny days and snow-filled skies here in Oxfordshire, by May it should be fairly safe to assume that a seasonal switch-up will be required for your skincare. Here are the products we’re excited about.
