Travel Notebook

On a recent trip to Tuscany, we were inspired by the natural beauty and the gleaming sunshine. Tables were set to welcome friends and bracelets jangled behind conversation. One particularly wonderful dinner, pictured, was held in a castle overlooking the city of Florence. The heat meant that minimal jewellery was the order of the day: luscious meringue pearl drops, a simple diamond eternity band and one Here to Eternity gold bangle were the perfect accessory to Tagliata di Bistecca, chianti - and the sunset. Italy has always provided inspiration to jewellers and jewellery lovers alike - golden sunsets, grand architecture and sensuous Italian Mama style make us want to wear oversize earrings during the day and sparkling gemstones by night - consider our jewellery look covered for the rest of the summer.
