The Big 3

This weekend is all about the ‘threes’.
The finals of Wimbledon and Henley, and the start of the Tour de France. If you’re into sport then you are in for a marathon!
Just think you could cycle to the 3 events on your Boris Bike that has…3 gears!
To get you through this tense weekend we thought we’d show you how to do it in style.
Kate Mid at wimbledon
Who better to start with than the stylish Duchess of Cambridge.

Check out her wincing expression as she watches Andy Murray battling through his match.
And who is that by her side, continuing to encourage and support her even though the match is ‘nail bitingly’ tense? Why it is her old faithful pearl drops on huggies.

Tour de France
Now I think you will agree that as a Nation we are rather talented at cycling, winning the Tour de France as well as several gold medals in the last few Olympic Games.
Lizzie Yarnold
One lady who is no stranger to winning a gold medal is Lizzy Yarnold. Winning her first in Sochi for the Skeleton.
Now obviously she didn’t race wearing pearls, but she did wear her grey freshwater pearl studs when addressing the numerous press conferences that followed her win.
If you would like a pair of freshwater pearl studs like Yarnold’s then call into our Pearl Showroom, located at 42 Beauchamp Place, London, SW3 1NX, where we have a wide variety of ‘pearl power’ jewellery!

Is it a Bird? a Plane?..no just another hat at Ascot!

Ascot
Every year the hats seem to get bigger, brighter and Bolder!
The past week has provided nonstop entertainment as we gazed upon the Royal Ascot fashions. Some stunning outfits, others….eye-opening! Below are our top 3 favorites.

Firstly we have to start with The Queen, for where would Royal Ascot be without Royalty!
Ascot The Queen2Above you can see the 4 outfits The Queen has worn so far at Ascot.
Notice the Pearls?! Our Pearl Team did!
At every occasion The Queen’s stunning pearl necklace and pearl earrings are present, taking a back seat while enhancing The Queen’s look.

Ascot Amanda HoldingThe second style that caught our eye was seen on Amanda Holden.
We loved the 1920s touch to her outfit, with the large coral coloured flower detail.

One thing this outfit does lack is some pearls. Perhaps some classic large pearl studs peeping though, or a long freshwater pearl necklace?

Ascot BIG HAT
Now it would be a crime not to mention this lady!

Ms Rose went to town with her hat creation. Twice the width of her and a third of her height… this hat difies gravity!

Perfectly matching her dress and exceptionally long nails this hat was the largest we have seen all week.
The perfect hat if you want to get noticed and obstruct the spectators view of the racing!
Warning, do not wear this hat if it is windy!
