Pretty Smart Pink and Navy With Antique Porcelain and Silver Earrings

Pink motif sweater and loose navy pants

Pink and navy is a very smart but really pretty colour combination - the former has that hint of girliness to it and the latter is your classic corporate colour. Put them together and you have the best of both worlds. The heart motif sweater and navy trousers are both offset beautifully by a few shiny things here: metallic woven loafers, a (not as tacky as it sounds) rhinestone-encrusted bag and a silver cuff all complement my beautiful new piece of jewellery...!

These 'full moon' silver and antique porcelain earrings are from 1P87, an online boutique which curates a unique collection of clothes, jewellery and accessories, all handcrafted by independent designers. The designer of these earrings, Yichuan, collects antique blue and white porcelain produced in the Imperial workshop in Qing Dynasty - the pieces are so delicate and pretty and I've not seen earrings quite like these before. Because they're made from antique porcelain each piece is one-of-a-kind... no two are the same.

I love that the silver tassels are just that little bit longer than you'd expect which makes them far more unique than anything you'd get on the high street (the tassels are different lengths too; asymmetric earrings are very on trend at the moment). They move like - and with - your hair and get blown around in the wind which makes them really tactile. I've become a bit of a sucker for fine jewellery lately, and I think these are so classic they'll still be something I wear for many years to come.

Do check out the rest of the collections by 1P87 (I also adore MICartsy's 3D florals and landscape prints)  - if you're into artistic, creative and unique pieces you're guaranteed to find something you love. Plus, you get a £10 voucher if you sign up to 1P87's newsletters - see the sign up form at the bottom of their site.

What fine or unique jewellery do you have that you cherish (wedding sets aside), and what makes it so special? I love to know the stories behind people's treasured jewellery :)

    1. Thanks so much Linda! You're right they are very dainty, but I think the extra long length makes them that little bit more edgy which I love )

  3. I'm not a big fan of earrings, but the ones from 1P87 you are sporting here are spectacular! I love long, delicate earrings, really amazing ^_^
    I have a golden swan necklace from my high school graduation, which is special to me, mostly because it reminds me of those days of blissful ignorance ':D Me and mom had this idea of a swan and went to a jelewer to make it. If I correctly remember at one point grandma gave her golden tooth to help collect more gold for the necklace :D
    I rarely wear it, but whenever I look at it it reminds me of a happy teenage time!

  6. Yes, a pretty and comfy outfit. I have combined fuchsia ((which is a pink shade) high heeled pimps, a fuchsia shopper and a navy blue summer dress. So I am totally with you. As for stories about treasured jewellery... I have too many stories and too much jewellery, so I won't start or I will never end.

    1. Maybe the jewellery stories would make a good blog post, Greetje...?! I'd love to hear them.

      Thank you sweetie, so great to hear you love navy and pink too! Fuchsia is definitely your colour :)
