Hermina Athens Is One Of The Romantic Chic Jewelry Brands

hermina

Greek designer Konstantina Pantelous founded Hermina Athens in 2012, naming the jewellery label after her daughter and in tribute to Olympian deity and herald, Hermes. Inspired by Greece’s rich history, Pantelous combines mythological motifs and talismanic symbols from ancient civilisations with organic materials – including freshwater pearls, turquoise and obsidian – to create an offering of meaningful personal relics to treasure and pass down. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings are made by local silversmiths in the label’s Athens-based workshop, each considered a tribute to the ease of island life and the beauty of imperfection.

These Are the Jewellery Brands I’d Honestly Recommend

Jewellery Brands

When it comes to the best jewellery brands, there is so much choice that it can be quite an overwhelming category to shop from. Whether big and bold or small and dainty, the options are endless. As a fashion editor, one of my most-asked questions is probably “Where can I find a fabulous piece of jewellery?” As a huge jewellery fan, I’m more than up for sharing my latest obsessions and fantasy splurges from brands like Seb Brown or Cece Jewellery. 

Once you start wearing jewellery in a more obsessive way, it becomes part of your everyday look, and you can’t be without it. I’ve been known to run back home and put my favourite signet ring on or my beloved hoop earrings in. So what is it about jewellery that makes you feel positively naked if you’re not wearing it? It can elevate the most basic of outfits. Whether you do that with a handful of colourful cocktail rings or a pared-back pearl choker, I happen to think your outfit isn’t complete without a smattering of jewels.

Jacobs

Where to start when it comes to looking for the best jewellery brands? Don’t fear. I’ve researched far and wide on the internet, and I’ve found lockets, statement rings, made-to-order earrings and colourful beaded bracelets all with a 2022 spin. Keep scrolling for my edit of the 3 most sought-after jewellery brands out there.

Emeralds “May” Be the Most Fashionable Gem To Wear Right Now

Emeralds

Those born in the month of May are lucky to have classic emerald as their birthstone, The glorious green gem is universally beloved by jewelry enthusiasts, despite its being notoriously fragile (much to many jewelers’ chagrin).

 

Those who have even a passing interest in fashion may find that their affinity for emerald jewels has grown over the years. Why? Because green has emerged as the color (see what is now known as Bottega Green; Jada Pinkett Smith in her showstopping emerald-green Jean Paul Gaulthier gown at the 2022 Oscars; and fresh spring greens at the SS22 runway shows of Prabal Gurung and Christian Siriano).

To the end consumer, green, whether in form of Italian leather, lustrous taffeta, or emerald pavé on a pair of hoop earrings, represents hope, renewal, the advent of spring, growth, and resilience.

 

J.Lo’s green diamond engagement ring will certainly nudge the green more firmly into the spotlight. But the jewelry world has been veering in a verdant direction for some time now, with jewelry designers across all ends of the price-point spectrum putting emerald-centric collections forward. Columbian emeralds—those from the Muzo mine in particular—are still considered the finest around, with Zambian emeralds, prized for their durability and minimal inclusions, considered a newer, highly desirable alternative.

Below, some of our favorite new emerald designs, for your consideration.

What The Stylist Editors Are Wearing On Holiday This Summer

Stylist

If you’re struggling to know what to pack this summer holiday, Stylist’s editors have some ideas for you.

Every year it gets you. The holiday packing conundrum. How many outfits do you need to take? Is one pair of sandals enough, or do you need to take multiple pairs? Do you take that piece you love, just in case you might wear it, even though it’s highly likely it will never make it out of the suitcase?

Year after year you vow to make your life simpler, just pack the pieces you will wear and leave the stress behind, and it never quite works. This year take inspiration from the editor’s at Stylist and see which pieces they are packing, and swearing by, on holiday this year.

Ashley Williams Happy Crystal Hair Clips

Deputy Editor, Gemma Crisp

’I hate checking in luggage so always try to pack light and do carry-on only, so space is always at a premium. Which is why I’m loving the popularity of hair accessories this season as they’re such an easy way to dress up an otherwise casual holiday outfit. I’ve been obsessed with Ashley Williams’ versions since seeing them on the catwalk.’

Fashion Assistant, Helen Atkin

’I tend to keep my holiday wardrobe relatively simple. Which means when a little bit of glam is required in the evening, jewellery is my go to accessory. Stacking necklaces are big trend right now, and one I’ve wholeheartedly bought into, so adding a little bit of colour to the gold necklaces I already wear with this turquoise coin necklace, gives my jewellery a holiday feel.’
