Did you know that the pearl is the birthstone for those lucky enough to be born in June? Steeped in stories, pearls are said to signify faithfulness, friendship and loyalty. We love the stories attached to the feminine pearl, but more than that we love their style, and adaptability to whoever is wearing them. Added to this we have the best modern edit of pearl style here at LNID. We asked our favourite pearl designer Claudia Bradby to shed some light on how she will be wearing her pearls this summer.
Summer style is about carefree days, hazy sunshine streaming through the trees, and spending time with those you love. And although it has been enforced on us, that is what we are all enjoying now. I have quite a boho aesthetic so one necklace or earring is never enough. My new dreamcatcher range was designed with festivals in mind as well as connecting us in with our hopes and dreams for the future. This feels more necessary than ever.
My favourite earrings are my silver and gold helix hoops which offer geometric slightly punkish hoops with baroque pearl drops which can be taken on and off. Try wearing them asymmetrically. Their matching choker is as far away from twinset and pearls as you could imagine. Wear the baroque pearl hanging down your floaty summer dress to add some fierceness to your feminine side.
Stacking arm candy is our latest crush and our cowrie bracelet – cast from a real cowrie shell – layers up with our essential bangle and our new micro world is your oyster bracelet. This sentiment is close to my heart and is the perfect gift to anyone this June.
As I designed the range I started with the Circle of Life pearl pendant. I wanted it to have a meditative feel, and to layer up with the dreamcatcher pendant. The smaller circle can be worn as a choker and sits really well with dress and T-shirt necklines.
Ear layering is key to our range and if you don’t yet have a piercing try our beautiful new twig cuffs. A perfect present for anyone wanting a slightly different ear and pearl vibe.
Pearls are the oldest gemstone know to mankind, and involve very little ‘processing’. We love their organic nature and celebrate that like you, each one is unique and slightly different…. Enjoy looking at pearls as your new best friend this summer…. (Shop the full Claudia Bradby collection here)
