Nautical Pearls

The nautical style has always been one of my favourites. Clean and simple lines, flattering silhouettes, stripe dresses, and sailor shorts exposing nicely tanned legs suit so many of us! In jewellery, this style has most often been represented by multiple interpretations of rope knots, anchors, and sea shells. But... how many more anchors, tiny boats, or two-toned beads can our jewellery box handle?


Inspired by the trend for Summer 2010, we decided to give a different look to nautical jewellery. This time, stripes are being incorporated into the main theme of the piece of jewellery. These dangle pearl earrings in silver are adorned with eight blue apatite gemstone beads to imitate our beloved stripes. We named them Ligea, which means "Clear-Toned", after one of the Sirens described in Greek mythology.

If you are looking for something that discreetly hints the nautical trend of the year, these pearl earrings would be my choice. Pair them with monochromatic tops, white shorts, and straw wedge sandals for a simple and classy look. A simple blue dress and frilly sandals will also provide a good match:
