Jewellery designer Claudia Bradby has launched a new pearl collection featuring aquamarine stones for SS17.
The Savanna range is the first time the cultured pearl specialist has used aquamarines within her designs. The range, inspired by Namibia in Africa, combines large, hand-cut aquamarines with pebble pearls.
Eponymous designer Claudia Bradby explained: “It’s hard not to be awestruck by the wide open spaces and sense of freedom the Namibian landscapes evoke. The large expanses of desert and unexpected pops of vibrant colour to be found there were hugely inspiring. This collection was designed to convey that spirit of adventure and discovery. I love how the earthy blue aquamarine contrasts with the silver and the lustre of pearls – it’s a perfect colour combination for summer.”

The collection includes the long Savanna pearl and aqua necklace and the coordinating Savanna aqua short necklace and Savanna aqua bracelet, with single feature aquamarine stone. Also new are the Sand Dollar silver necklace, which can be worn either long or at a shorter length, as well as a new ear jacket design with three- and five-pearl options.
