Rio Olympics 2016

rio 2016The Olympics have arrived!! Four years after London hosted the 2012 (cough “best” cough) games, all of us here at Coleman Douglas Pearls can’t believe its four years later and are ready for the Rio party! After watching the amazing opening ceremony we couldn’t help but keep our eyes peeled to see a few of the athletes rocking their pearls!

Hopefully emulating some of their 2012 success are GB heptathlete Jessica Ennis Hill (who chose pearls for her wedding day) and USA swimmer Missy Franklin who is rarely seen without her pearl studs – even when in the pool! And with Brazil being the birthplace of many a top model (especially Gisele strutting her stuff at the opening ceremony!)  it is likely Rio will be one of the most fashionable Olympics ever! We will have our fingers crossed that pearls will be winning gold more than once!

Beach East 3If your looking for a sociable way to enjoy the Olympics why not try BeachEast at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The largest urban beach in the UK is returning with a Copacabana feel! As one of TeamGB’s official fan zones they will be broadcasting live coverage of the games and offering you a chance to take part in some of the sports that the athletes are competing in.

The party atmosphere also got us thinking – what pearls would you wear to the Brazilian fiesta? This south sea and tourmaline necklace has to be worth considering, with its bright colours and happy pearl drop you can’t go wrong wearing this to samba the night away.
