From the Catwalk to the Sidewalk – Think Pink!

It won’t have escaped your attention that pink is having a moment this spring, moving seamlessly from the catwalks to the sidewalk.

From blush to rose, pink is having a moment.

At Lily Blanche we often compile moodboards of our favourite looks/ inspirational images as we put together new collections or new jewellery combinations. This spring we are enjoing working with rose quarz and rose gold for a pink on pink intensity. To compliment our Luminous rings, we have designed a new range of earrings using the same quality and cut of gemstones which have made our cocktail rings such a great hit. These Luminous earrings will be on the website soon.

A dash of sherbert pink by way of a cocktail ring, earrings or bracelets is the perfect way to update a winter outfit for spring, be it navy cashmere, winter taupes and greys which need a pop of colour, or rich Christmas crimson. And while everyone knows pearls are a great way to brighten skin tones dulled by central heating, pale pink pearls add an extra something. Champagne pink pearls are the perfect way to overcome the formality of a pearl necklace.  Whatever you are wearing this spring Рthink pink!

Peapod and Pearls

The Lily Blanche peapod collection is inspired by memories of shelling peas from the garden with my grandmother. We children would each have a colander full of bright green pods and a bowl in which to deposit the little emerald spheres. It was always so satisfying to pop the pods and we had a competition to see how many and how big the peas inside were. They tasted so fresh and sweet and for me they are a real taste of summer.

There is something so aesthetically pleasing about the humble peapod. It is such an elegant shape and it struck us that it was a perfect design for a Lily Blanche pendant. We wanted a 3D effect with movement and energy and so we’ve used the pearls to create ripples in the sterling silver pod with a final pearl “pea” escaping from the end of the pendant.

Teamed with the little pod earrings, which complement the pendant but are not too matchy-matchy, the Lily Blanche Peapod collection makes a perfect set. It’s a great gift for anyone who exudes understated elegance and perfect for green-fingered gardeners.

We hope you enjoy this little video.
