Chic & Mignon Parisian Jewellery

Accessoires/ Romantique

Parisian Lover earrings

Jewellery from Les Néréides, a Parisian costume jeweller, is like a dreamy journey into a world of naivety, fairy tales and endless creativity.

Even for the most rational of fashionistas, it is impossible to not give into the charm of those quirky, cooky-cute designed pieces.

Escape daily routine, spreadsheets and the office life with my favourite pieces:

Les Nereides Ballerina earrings

Pink, asymmetrical earrings from the Les Nereides “Pas de Deux” line. For the 120th anniversary of the opera Nutcracker, Les Nereides  added a new colour called “chocolate” to the collection. Magnifique!

Les Nereides gingerbread earrings

N2 is Les Nereides’s quirkier subline. These gingerbread earrings are good enough to eat!

Gingerbread & Little Red Riding Hood collier

The delicate charm of fairy tales in the shape of Little Red Riding Hood

Les Nereides locket heart pendant

The Line “Ouvre ma ton coer” (Open your heart to me) are hematit plated lockets with different figurines inside to celebrate different occasions:

·    A heart within a heart over a heart. The French call this mise en abyme. I call it chic!

·    A girl holding a bouquet of flowers to celebrate Mothers Day.

·    Bride and groom to celebrate a marriage.

·    A couple to celebrate love or an engagement.

·    A stork carrying a bundle of joy to celebrate a new arrival (ok, this is even too much for me)

Fairytale locket

Take your favourite fairy tales and put them round your neck. My favourite is the gingerbread house with Hansel and Gretel hidden inside.

Tell us what you think, do you love the tongue-in-cheek  jewellery from Les Nereides or is it too much Kitsch for you?

Molto pretty summer jewellery!

Accessoires/ Romantique

What I love most about travelling is discovering local shops to see what the country’s own  influences, trends and styles are.

Porto Cervo is the capital of the Costa Smeralda, Sardinia and caters for its affluent visitors with high-end shops.
I discovered the jewellery shop “More & Chic” at Porto Cervo’s luxurious shopping mile.
Their stunning pieces of jewellery reflect the colours of the Emerald coast:
  • Off-white gem stones like the sugary white sand at Spiaggi Principe
  • Emerald  green earrings and necklaces  like the crystal clear water that gave the Costa Smeralda it’s name
  • yellow and light brown zirconia as warm as the Italian sun
As you can see, the jewellery is, like everything in Italy, excellently crafted and shows the expertise of its designers.

Emerald pearls with a golden bow – cute!
Look at those gorge cocktail rings!
Sea and shells! Imagine this necklace on tanned skin and an elegant dress!
How amazing are these heart earrings?
All of the above eyecandy jewellery is sold at More & Chic at Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy.
Never forget to have fun with jewellery too! I’m messing about with pop orange pineapple earrings, €5, from a Sardinian souvenir shop.
