As the temperature rises, accessories can become a little predictable. An oversized hat, your favourite pair sunglasses, maybe a straw bag. But what about jewellery? We think the summer months offer a rare opportunity to display exciting pieces to the world, when throughout the year they are often masked by scarves, long sleeves and bulky coats. That’s why we’re bringing you some unmissable pieces that fit the weighted jewellery trend, direct from the acclaimed fine jewellery brand Pantolin.
Inspired by her grandmother who was a couture designer and mother who was an artist, Pantolin founder Paula has creativity in her blood. She knew early on that art was a way of living for her and launched her high quality jewellery pieces in 2006. Since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength whilst continuing to create items grounded in ethical production techniques. Pantolin responsibly source all precious stones and use recycled metal wherever possible, with the aim of being 100% recycled in the near future. This means that you can confidently purchase the most beautiful jewellery, safe in the knowledge that it has been produced with mother earth in mind.
Let’s kick off this magnificent round up with the Sky Collection which features this stunning statement cuff. Boasting 14K gold plated exterior and peppered with cubic zircon stones, this piece needs no other accessories to tell a story. Whoever is wearing this beauty on their wrist means business. Also part of this range are circular drop earrings with the same 14K gold plating and delicate stone placement. They also have a contrasting upper with silver colour which adds a unique dimension.
Alternatively, the same shape can be purchase with the retro fish scale pattern which crops up throughout the brand’s designs, such as their locket selection. The Fish Scale locket caught our attention due to its shimmering finish, brought into being thanks to the breathtaking Mother of Pearl placement. The locked itself is generous and oversized, the perfect layering piece to work with your existing necklaces and guaranteed take a simple outfit from drab to decadent with zero effort.
There are also two locket options as part of the Arabesque range which uses an intricate, geometric design throughout. The wide, chunky rings in this range are particularly appealing, and would be an ideal piece to wear with a classic cocktail dress in the evening or a boho floaty dress by day. However you choose to style your ring — both silver and rose gold are available — it will be sure to catch the eye of more than a few admirers.
However, the standout design from Pantolin in our opinion, is the Cross Chain collection. This chunky chain design is available as a necklace in either the small cross or big cross option. Whichever size you prefer is available in silver, gold, black rhodium and rose gold to suit your own personal style. Try layering different colours to capitalise on the mixed metal trend which has become popular this year.
The cross chain design is also available as a bracelet in 18K plated gold or silver. This comes complete with a monogramed charm featuring the famous Pantolin logo which is synonymous with the brand. This classic bracelet would work with a simple off-duty outfit such as boyfriend jeans and a crisp white shirt, but can also be worn with more formal summer attire such as a maxi dress or masculine black pant suit. If you love the cross chain range as much as we do then you’ll also want to invest in the drop earrings too. We think these would look great with a slicked back wet-look pony tail and a matte red lip.
The PP Monogram can also be found on some of the statement earrings which you’ll be dying to wear on your next evening out. The PP Rainbow Earrings are a firm favourite, available is a multitude of colour palettes ranging from deep blue topaz and citrine to smoky topaz and rose quartz. These colourful options make these an excellent piece for those who like to make a bold statement with their earrings, and a customisable option if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a friend. The square shape gives that weighted appearance without making them too overbearing, and the gold plating holds each carefully chosen stone in place.
