We’ve got a cheeky little glint in our eyes this week and it’s not from the reflection of Kate’s massive sapphire rock, no, it’s Joanna Cave’s new Spring/Summer collection. Just looking at the statement ‘Bianca’ tribal-influenced necklace makes us dream of sipping cocktails at sunset in Ibiza, and the single rose-plated silver parrot ‘Valerie’ makes us almost feel the sun on our face.
Each piece of Joanna Cave's luxe ethical jewellery looks lovingly hand-made, and that’s because it was – created from recycled silver and responsibly source pearls by people who care about their craft and are paid fairly and squarely. So you can wear your little treasure with pride.
Cave, who is half English half Greek, takes her influence from just about anything and everything, could be a bird, could be a plane – you name it, she’s spotted its stylistic intricacies and bejewelled potential. This season is all about strong bold shapes, tribal patterns and stylistic motifs - cut-out stars, parrots, peacocks and owls give a common thread to the collection.
Snap up the adorable little rose-plated silver owl pendant 'Owl R', perfect for channelling your inner hippie, or 'Paula R', a bold geometric interlocking pendant that is just begging for a hot jumpsuit and wedge heels. And without wishing to forget our ears, we’ve also got a little soft spot for the beautiful Kenitra ‘cut-out’ stars on wings. Oh, we’re all a –flutter!
