Love is in the air! Yes, Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, and we think it’s time we spread a little affection – and what better way to do so than with jewellery? We’ve collected the latest and best from one of our favourite jewellery brands, Danish designer Pernille Corydon, and created an easy guide to shopping for the people you love this February 14th. Whether you’re gift-hunting for your partner-in-crime, or fancy showing yourself a little love, there’s bound to be something shiny and special to be found.
The Daylight collection is a literal bright spot in our roundup, with delicate beams of silver and gold creating subtle, beautiful pieces that remind us of sunshinier times. There’s a piece for all tastes in this range, ranging from the subtle charms hanging off the Mini Daylight Necklace and Bracelet, to the statement-making Long Daylight Necklace. The Daylight Ring’s bold sun motif makes for an ideal standout piece that still looks great stacked alongside simpler rings. But our favourite might just be the Daylight Earrings – available in two sizes, the lines and arches of these dangling hoops catch the light beautifully, and are bound to catch your eye (and as a bonus, they look great stacked alongside each other, if you’ve got two lobe piercings to work with).
If you haven’t heard of druzy stones before, let’s clue you in – they’re naturally formed gemstones made from teeny tiny crystals of mineral that create a stunningly textured, organic-looking stone that’s perfect for adding a little sparkle without too much polish. We’ve got a pretty pair to choose from: the darkly dazzling black druzy stone contrasts with a gold plate in the Ash Ring and Ash Earsticks, meanwhile solid Sterling silver comfortably compliments the icy Nordic blue druzy stone of the Shallow Ring and Shallow Earrings. Perfect for someone who isn’t afraid to dazzle whilst also keeping things down-to-earth.
Druzy stones aren’t all that we’ve got to offer by way of gems: pearls have never been more wearable (or romantic!), and we love the Lagoon collection, made up of a delicate bracelet, a statement ring, and a truly enduring pair of classically-inspired earhook earrings set with beautiful baroque pearls. For a more colourful take, you’ll find a diverse, dreamy variety in the super-popular Dream Hoops, which feature several chain-hanging stone charms made of blue agate, smoke quartz, and freshwater pearl.
Pernille Corydon’s jewellery finds inspiration in the natural world often, and these lovely pieces highlight the best of that inspiration. Take the two styles of Waterdrop collection earrings: the Waterdrop Hoops put a gently detailed twist on an easy everyday piece, and the Waterdrop Earchains are a beautifully fluid statement earring that elevates even the simplest of ensembles. You can also create out-of-this-world looks with the delicate spherical charms of the Comet Necklace and Bracelet, the subtle splendour of the Solar Necklace, and the starry shine of the Shooting Star Earsticks.
A little overwhelmed? We get it. Sometimes, simple is best. PC’s also got plenty to pick from if you’re on the hunt for unfussy, paired-back pieces in solid sterling silver or 18ct gold plate. A new arrival is the Solid collection: a set of gender-neutral chains that make for an effortless, timeless addition. Want a little extra sparkle? The Elinor Necklace and Bracelet are striking snake chains that’ll compliment any outfit perfectly. You also can’t beat a hoop earring, and the Orbit Hoops (in two sizes!) provide a subtly structured twist to a classic formula, making that most easy-to-wear of pieces a little bit special.
We love everything we’ve featured, but if you’d like some more browsing time, you can find all our Pernille Corydon pieces alongside the rest of our jewellery collection (also featuring big names like Alex Monroe and Une A Une) on the site now. Or, if jewellery's not your bag, have no fear! We've gathered all our best gifty bits into a Valentine's Day edit. All ready to be shipped to you/your loved one's home, or collected from our stores, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Make sure you don’t forget. We won’t!
Love (and lots of it),
