Another Jewellery Box...

I seem to have a lot of pretty receptacles to hold all my jewellery. I think my favourites are the cupcake shaped cookie jar and the ornamental ceramic Chinese box. The latter belonged to my grandparents and I recall how it used to hold random crystals that had fallen off their chandeliers and I was really pleased when my grandma said I could have it!
Too many boxes
In celebration of their recent collaboration with Amanda Wakeley, High Street Jewellers, Ernest Jones sent me another box to add to my collection (thank you Emily!). However, compared to all the cupcake containers, it's definitely the smartest jewellery box I own! Of course, I didn't wait around and set about filling it with my favourite jewellery...

Red Bow and Untitled Necklace (Tatty Devine) Orb Necklace (Vivienne Westwood) Key Necklace (Black Pearl)
Returning back to the collab, I think the Ernest Jones collaboration with Amanda Wakeley (their second together) is pretty cool and like her designs, they've got the whole understated chic going on. Luckily, since it's a high street range, the prices are WAY more affordable. The ones I've picked below are my favourite and are all priced at under £100. Good for graduation presents or er...maybe a bit of a decadent splurge!

Ooops! Yes I spelled her name wrong in this collage...
I would have loved to have been at the Amanda Wakeley show from earlier on in the year but here is a quick reminder of her AW11 collection, Luxe Sportif. I think you'll all agree that all the black, sharp lines and 'solar encrusted' beading is perfectly reflected in her jewellery line! Swoon.

The weather is meant to be gorgeous this weekend, let me know what you guys get up to. I so wish I had a BBQ to attend!!

  5. You have such adorable jewellery boxes I don't really have many unless you count the old tea box I use to store my rings, If I don't keep them in drawers I mostly hang my jewellery on my walls http://cateaclysmic.blogspot.com/2010/04/diy-tutorial-creative-jewellery-storage.html

  7. aawww your cup cake box collection looks so cute all together!
    I have an old wooden box which is more like a display case and also one similar to the Amanda Wakeley one, which is fun when it's stuffed as it's a bit like a treasure chest!
    Have a lovely weekend! xx

  14. Your new jewelery box is so great! It's very modern and yet it somehow makes me think a woman in the 1950's might have used something like it:) Happy weekend! xx
