I was thrilled to be asked by Links of London to visit their Chelsea store recently and make an edit of my favourite summer pieces. With so much to choose from, from the contemporary to the timeless, you can imagine this was quite a task! However, being a total rose gold fiend and a real sucker for some personalised engraving, my choices took far less time than you would imagine...
The 18kt Rose Gold Vermeil & Taupe Cord Mini Friendship Bracelet (RRP. £140.00) was my first choice. The shimmery metallic cord is perfect for the summer, especially when paired with other bracelets, for an on-trend layered look. Which brought me quickly to choosing the more classic Effervescence 18kt Rose Gold Vermeil Bangle (RRP. £120.00) with its bubble-like design working perfectly alongside the friendship bracelet. This beautiful, will-go-with-everything, duo is a great mixture of bohemian and traditional, and will be so useful this summer in the city and on the beach, from day through to night.
I decided to pair the Narrative 18kt Rose Gold Vermeil Small Oval Disc Pendant (RRP. £95.00), with the Narrative 18kt Yellow Gold Vermeil Long Pendant (RRP. £85.00) and engraved the very apt first lines of the song my father used to sing to my sister and I to help us go to sleep, “Summertime… And the living is easy.” It’s funny how something can suddenly become so special once personalised with such a simple message, but the necklace automatically became a treasure.
