Elegant new-season Etoile pearls and amethyst two-strand necklace
This elegant new design has arrived at a good moment in the fashion outlook—AW16/17 sees the return of multi-strings of pearls to their classic best on catwalks from Paris to New York. The emphasis is on layers of pearls accented by gemstones and worn over everything—from bare skin to polo-necks and jackets, and the vision is clear: girls really are in pearls this season! At Chanel of course, but also Gucci, Miu Miu and Dries Van Noten.
The ‘Etoile’ is both beautiful and versatile. A stylish princess-length necklace, it is designed to contrast the gleam of natural white baroque pearls and the purple of the amethyst gemstones, the two strands draping across the décolleté in a radiantly seductive manner, held by a sterling silver clasp. It is perfect with tailored twilight or daytime looks. Wear it on its own to add the finishing touch to an outfit—it looks fabulous with both the blue skies and earth tones of this season’s autumn colours—or go wild and combine with more strands of pearls—pure beauty, either way.
New Etoile Pearl and Amethyst and Sterling Silver Necklace: Lengths 22in (55cm) and 23in (58cm). Arrives in a smart jewel case for presentation. RRP £250. CCUK £127.
