Hi Guys!

I just have a quick post for you today – I’ve come across some amazing jewellery and had to share it with you! Lily Kamper’s AW14 collection is simply stunning. It’s futuristic, it’s unusual, it’s luxe, and oh so colourful – it ticks all the boxes for me! Lily creates pieces with classic marble and contemporary dyed perspex to produce a striking, futuristic trademark look.

Inspired by the iridescent outer glow of the moon, photographs of the Earth at night and elaborate marble stairways, Lily has created a range that’s as curious as it is cutting edge. Lily’s hand dyed columns have been updated with some gorgeous colour ways including; matte emerald green with cracked black marbling, purple mixed with grey, yellow and midnight blue.

The range is fabulously diverse, with a considered collection of bracelets and rings as well as Lily’s column pendants in a range of shapes and sizes, from tiny to more robust, to create a collection that’s varied yet wearable. I have to say I really can’t get enough of this collection! Please let me know what you think! xxx

Violet Darkling Hypnotic Loris Ring

Posted on November 14, 2013

Hi Guys!

Today I have the most gorgeous piece of jewellery to share with you! Have you heard of Violet Darkling? If not you neeeeeeed to check out their site, they sell the most amazing and unusual jewellery!

Here’s a bit more about the company –

Violet Darkling is the alter ego of New Zealand born designer Louisa Richwhite. Inspired by the ‘darkness’ and all things nocturnal, teamed with her outdoor roots and quirky humour, Violet Darkling reflects a desire to make life just a little more magical.

Violet Darkling’s unique collection of jewellery is sculptured in silver and gold and dripping with semi-precious stones. These distinctive pieces are a collector’s item and true statements of quality and originality. Richwhite’s ability to transport us back to our childhood is developed through her distinctive collection, where she reminds us of the fears, the magic, our fascination with ‘Things of the Night’.

Ok so firstly, before I tell you about the jewellery – what the heck is a loris?? I wasn’t entirely sure myself so thought I’d do a bit of research! The loris is a nocturnal animal found in the tropical and woodland forests of India, Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia, they are slow and cautious creatures that also produce a poisionous toxin from their elbows! A loris, is also the animal that Rihanna was controversially photographed with a couple of moths ago in Thailand, controversial because the use of the slow loris and other protected species for tourist photos in Thailand is officially illegal.

My Hypnotic Loris ring arrived in a high quality purple silk lined jewellery box, and the ring itself was presented in the cutest tiny velvet pouch. The ring is silver plated with purple amethyst eyes.

I’m so in love with this ring! It’s so dainty and cute, which is great for me as I have short fingers so can’t wear big chunky rings. It’s also handy being slim as it can be stacked with other rings.

This ring is also available in yellow gold, rose gold and black rhodium, each with different semi-precious gemstone eyes. There are also more amazing loris rings available that are more detailed, as well as necklaces and bracelets too.

There are so many gorgeous and unusual pieces on the site, this Tarsier necklace is definitely going on my christmas list!

I’d love to hear what you think of my ring? I hope you enjoyed my post 🙂 xxx
