Yeah, OK, OK, so they’re not really vintage, in fact they’re brand new. However this clip on earring design does capture the spirit of an age and it’s sleek lines are often said to be 50s retro, a perfect side dish to a swing dress:

We still have a limited number of Rodney Holman Vintage Twist Clip On Earrings in white and red enamel left, although once these go that will be the end of that line.

It’s not all sad news though. After Rodney Holman and I got together at the start of February, we finalised a new clip on earring collection which will be available from March. There’ll be over 40 more clip on earring lines in a wide range of styles, again with an emphasis on rhodium and gold plated quality pieces, plus a sprnkling of more eclectic earrings. Watch this space for news soon!

New Clip On Earring Matching Sets

Co-ordination. It’s what makes the difference between sloppy and snappy. In response to requests, we’re now launching a new matching clip on earring sets department where you can get hold of a much wider range of clip on earrings with matching necklaces and sometimes bracelets and rings too. It’s part of our goal to make you beautiful whatever you want to wear and the extra impact you can make just by accessorising with matching co-ordinates is incredible.

First up, we’re putting our Fiorelli Jewellery matching sets together. There will also be some from other designers too including gemstone and sterling silver Angel Rocks, luxury costume jewellers Adele Marie London and eclectic spirited Look East Jewellery. There’s also often a little discount when you buys the items together so it makes better money sense as well as fashion sense too.

Here’s an example. These Fiorelli Blue Cubic Zirconia Clip On Earrings are a classic item, easy to wear throughout the seasons:

We’ll be adding a whole load more to the clip on earring matching set department each week so do keep an eye out for bargains that make you beautiful.

The Sun Shines When You Look East

Look East are an exciting brand from Australia. Their initial inspiration of jewellery capturing the eclectic and bohemian spirit of India sent a ray of sunshine through our hearts when we previewed it and we knew we had to put it on our Summer essential list along with our vacation book, sunglasses and white beach shirt.

The essence of the brand is the spirit of adventure and friendship in far away places and their gorgeous hoop clip on earrings capture that wonderfully. For instance, their Apple Blossom Hoop Clip On Earrings come in three colours and mix gorgeous wooden beads with metal and gold to create a signature hoop clip on:

Look East Apple Blossom Beaded Clip On Hoop Earrings - Green

Other clip on hoop earrings decorate the space with chain or beads whilst the acrylic hoops have a sexy animal edge to them.

New Clip Earring Collection By Zandra Rhodes

Zandra Rhodes is a true icon of British fashion. Anyone whose fashion is so impactful they get made a CBE – that’s Commander of the British Empire – is at a different level to most! Although her early textile work was considered outrageous by the standards of the 1960s, she went on to become a punk trend setter in the 70s and design clothing for Diana, Princess of Wales. With hair that’s been as colourful as her career, the 71 year old ambassador for English style still has plenty of ideas left.

One of those has been a collaboration with Adele Marie London to create a range of luxury costume jewellery inspired her classic works. Adele Marie London have been queen of British costume jewellery since Adele Vanderkar left Harvey Nichols to start the label. It’s at the pinnacle of what you can get in costume jewellery with sumptuous textiles mixing with Swarovski crystals and gorgeous beads of peak quality. As such, it’s right at the divide between outright fine jewellery or art and daily wearables which is what made Adele Marie London the perfect choice for Zandra Rhodes’ new jewellery collection.

Viewing the collection with Stuart Thomas, director of Adele Marie London, I was treated to a feast the day before the range officially is unveiled by Zandra herself at the Pure London Fashion Show. There’s a range of statement clip on earrings, all beautifully created here in the UK to a very high standard and presented with Zandra’s etching on. The packaging and presentation seal the deal as collectables that will surely appreciate in value with time whilst giving powerful statement wear in the meantime. Rounding off the collection are other pieces inspired by Zandra Rhodes’ early work; Stuart told me of the amount of time spent in her London workshop, leafing through old textiles and designs to capture the spirit of a woman who has made huge sweeping statements in the fashion world.

The Zandra Rhodes by Adele Marie Collection will launch in August this year and will be available through us and I’d expect Harrods and Harvey Nicholls too. We’ll keep you posted on advance ordering a little closer to the time as well as whether there will be an initial number of hand signed pieces available!

Farewell to our Failure with Filagree

It was just last month that we launched our Filagree Teardrop Clip On Earrings and I’m now in the shame faced position of owing you an apology. It was one of our own label Minxy’s Jewellery Designer Clip On Earrings and it’s distinct bohemian leanings with an Arabic filagree form would lend itself naturally to loose flowing white cotton and the approaching warm days.

Where we got it abjectly wrong was that we woefully underestimated just how many of you would want to work these clip on earrings into your style. We’ve had to cease taking orders on this clip on earring today as we’ve totally sold out of all the stock we got in both brass and silver tone finishing. I also want to post a personal apology to those of you who got in touch asking for it – if we could reset the production line to do another run we would, but our next collection is already underway.

It’s always hard for us to estimate volumes of different styles of clip on earrings as we serve so many different women. Some clip on earrings that come in have us all drooling over them, yet only get a steady response whilst others fly out so fast we’re taken by surprise. I am really grateful to those of you who do get in touch and let me know what type of clip on earrings you want to see, or what colours you’re needing to complete your look, or who tell tell us about your style. We always take your feedback into consideration when we buy new clip on earring ranges in, so please do let us know what we do well and what we need to pay more attention to. We can’t guarantee not to keep having hit clip on earrings that sell out in under a month but we can guarantee to listen to you and be on your side.

Clip Earrings With Style Miles

It’s great to splurge out once in a while but what’s even better than simple retail therapy is getting great accessories that have enough versatility to work your wardrobe. A well chosen pair of clip on earrings should be able to add that dash of sugar and spice to all things nice and the stylists from Polyvore have set to work to show us how.
