It’s approaching awards season for the jewellery industry and so we’ve been busy preparing entries and assembling collections for judging. Having to concisely describe your company, what you stand for and what makes you different really focuses the mind and is a worthwhile reminder of why we do stand out. One of the things we are most proud of, but perhaps don’t shout about enough, is the broad range of styles offered through Claudia’s designs. Since establishing Claudia Bradby Jewellery 18 years ago, Claudia has been inspired by the beauty and versatility of pearls and the belief that they can be part of every woman’s everyday wardrobe, no matter what your personal style. Few other gemstones, if any, are so adaptable to sit equally well across all occasions. Any of our pearl drop earrings would work equally well for the office as the opera. Pearls can help you carry off that understated chic look like no other stone.
While pearls are the bond that connects our collections, the variation in design ranges from edgy to enduring and everything in between. For a classic dresser, our Heritage or Couture collections offer timeless pieces. Love pastels? The natural pink pearls of our Garbo collection exude femininity and romance. If you prefer a modern look then try our Geometric range and for free spirits, the Savanna collection exudes earthy luxury.
Few of us fit neatly into one category so have fun with mixing up styles and colours to create your own look. You will find that your pearls are the most hard-working pieces in your jewellery collection. As Jackie Kennedy famously said, ‘Pearls are always appropriate’.
P.S. Claudia has been shortlisted for Designer of the Year at the prestigious Retail Jeweller awards and we’ll keep you posted with any further successes!
