Top 5 Jewellery Looks From The British Fashion Awards
On Monday evening, fashion’s elite assembled at The Royal Albert Hall in celebration of British fashion designers. The night was a spectacle of glitz, glamour and of course, gorgeous jewellery. The red carpet was sprinkled with visions of beauty, including one very special appearance from The Duchess of Sussex, who lovingly held her baby bump. Between the flashes of photographers (and Kendall Jenner’s derrière) a profusion of exquisite jewels adorned the sparkling celebrities. From layered necklaces to statement signet rings, almost every jewellery trend could be spotted amongst the stars. We have chosen our top five leading looks from the evening with expert tips on how you can recreate their style!
ADUT AKECH’S HEXAGONAL HARMONY
Adut Akech truly was the golden girl as she radiated effortless elegance. Adut paired a statement pair of hexagonal diamond earrings with her exquisite gold Valentino gown. The contemporary design of the geometric earrings beautifully compliment Valentino’s antique style dress. To recreate this look, we have chosen Bavna’s impeccable The Larisa Earring. Based in Los Angeles, Bavna’s designs are worn by the likes of Beyonce and Kim Kardashian, making her a master of A-List accessories. The Art Deco form is crafted using 18kt yellow gold and adorned with white diamonds. Pair with The Jasmine Pendant for that extra finesse and channel Queen-B’s sass and sultriness.
CHARLES JEFFREY AND THE SINGLE EARRING
Charles Jeffrey was voted Emerging Menswear Designer of the Year at the 2017 British Fashion Awards. One year on, the designer marks his relevance through his unique take on asymmetric jewellery. Asymmetric jewellery has taken the runway by storm one single earring at a time, and this looks shows us why. Consisting of a single hoop suspending precious gems - all enclosed in a glass oblong - Charles Jeffrey’s earring blurs the boundaries of art and accessory. Inspired by this iconic look, we have opted for Xiaohe Shen’s cosmic circular earring. This single earring comes from the designer’s Circular Orbit collection, which is influenced by space. Luminous lavender or beaming blue? You’ll have photographers orbiting you as you set the trends with this statement piece!
AQUARIA REVIVES COSTUME JEWELLERY
Aquaria’s ensemble was show-stopping. The Ru Paul star put supermodels to shame with her striking avant garde gown, pairing it with some incredible silver and gold earrings. Don’t envy Aquaria, get the look yourself with Alexandra Alberta’s Exotica Earrings! Costume jewellery made a comeback this year, and Aquaria imbues this trend with sophistication and elegance. Alberta’s earrings will guarantee your bold entrance, and paired with Botta Gioielli’s Blue Topaz Snake Ring, you’ll be leaving the party with all eyes on you. Aquaria proves that when life’s a drag, you will always look fabulous!
RUBY REALNESS WITH JENNA COLEMAN
Channelling more of a classic look, Jenna Coleman wore a rich red set of jewels. Jenna leaves the mismatching to the millennials, showcasing a gorgeous brooch, necklace and earring set. Wearing a crisp white Preen gown and embellished with red gems, Jenna was an English Rose.
Inspired by these rouge hues, we have chosen Gemondo Jewellery’s Geometric Halo set for you to get the look! Bejewel your body and sparkle with these premium 9kt gold pieces. The designer aims to bring classic gemstone jewellery to the modern woman, exemplified through the playful fusion of geometric shapes and traditional rubies. Feel the poise of a monarch and the glamour of a celebrity in these precious pieces - they’re not the only ones who get to sparkle!
DANCE IN DIAMONDS LIKE KAIA GERBER
Voted model of the year, it wasn’t just Kaia Gerber’s jewellery that was winning! Kaia resembled a diamond herself wearing a silver sequin ensemble by Alexander McQueen. She elevated her look to heavenly realms with white diamond earrings and a matching diamond ring. Elegant and iridescent, the model showed us just how timeless white diamonds are. Lead by Kaia’s chic example, we know you’d look great in Lafonn’s Sterling Silver & Platinum Sunburst Earrings and matching pendant. This affordable set will lift your look to red carpet status without breaking the bank! Sparkle and shine in these radiant jewels - it’s time to join the A-List!
