Everyone is talking about Bridgerton, the new Netflix drama which is proving to be the most popular show on the streaming service to date, and it’s easy to see why.

Set against the backdrop of Regency-era England, Bridgerton gave us all a sense of romantic escapism that many of us so desperately craved during challenging times in these often dreary winter months.

Although set in the 1800s, the show has been very cleverly given a modern twist, from the dreamy classical versions of modern music to giving people of different ethnic backgrounds powerful roles, as well as touching on feminism and complex family dynamics.

Timeless elegance with splash of contemporary flair is a style that has a distinct likeness to Claudia’s handcrafted jewellery designs.

“I always wanted to create something for strong, independent and adventurous women with a passion for living life to the full,” says Claudia.

Her journey into the mysterious and wonderful world of pearls began with a well-meaning but ill-conceived gift from her husband. She tried to find the gentlest possible way of telling him that it was far too expensive to be so uninspiring. Touring the pearl markets of Hong Kong shortly afterwards, she was mesmerised by the versatility and allure of this, the oldest and arguably most beautiful of gemstones. This evolved into her creation of a unique collection of contemporary jewellery designed to bring a little style and joy into wearing the much-loved timeless pearl.

Pearl choker necklaces are featured on numerous occasions in Bridgerton and this classic white pearl charm choker has been given a modern edge set off against tiny silver drops.

We couldn’t possibly talk about the timeless elegance of pearls without mentioning Claudia’s Biography Necklace – one of the most traditional pieces in our range.

Claudia was inspired by pearl icons when creating this necklace, from the incredible Mariyn Monroe to Sarah Jessica Parker’s clever way of wearing pearls in even the most relaxed setting.

 

So, whether you hope to attend your first social gathering in style or simply want to promenade through your local park and feel amazing in times of hardship, the power of pearls will give us all the strength to help us get through anything.
