“I love graphic shapes which makes me a sucker for Art Deco. The length, the black versus white diamonds and triangular shape of these earrings fizzle with excitement for me."
“A pair of dramatic earrings is all you need for the Holiday Season to perk up any outfit. No time to change before drinks? Clip on these ruby red drops and you’ll look a million dollars.
I don’t often wear anything that matches, big suites can look too much and a little out dated. But I would pick this cuff with the earrings. They have the right amount of difference in their design; the tassel drips with chic and I see something of New York’s dazzling skyline and architecture in them.”
“Having chosen these three for myself, what would I hope to be given? A sentimental surprise. Golden Love and Kisses earrings from the Stephen Webster and Tracey Emin ‘I Promise to Love You’ collection. If I found them in a box at the end of my stocking I’d promise to treasure them.”
