Fresh and sweet, Boodles new ‘Orchard’ collection features the familiar and playful symbol of a pear.
Delicate drop earrings, pendants, rings and bracelets feature pear-shaped charms, lightly dusted with diamonds, which appear ready to be plucked straight from the tree. Smooth and elegant curving lines form the rich, plump shape of a distinctive fruit motif. Diamonds and gold create a luxuriant feel.
Pears are scattered throughout British history, culture and country landscapes: dominant within royal orchards from as early as 1207, featuring in poetry and nursery rhymes throughout centuries, and still baked within puddings and cultivated within gardens today.
The pear is the perfect symbol of Britishness and translates beautifully into Boodles fine jewellery designs. ‘Orchard’ is a feminine and elegant collection with a unique symbolism.
Boodles Designer, Lorna Shaw, says: “Inspired by our British seasons and walled kitchen gardens, these delicate sun-kissed gold pears hang from glittering diamond pavé leaves, appearing ready
and ripe for picking”.
The smooth skins of pears are portrayed through the matte-finish of the 18 carat gold charms. The non-glossy yellow and white gold options are understated and softly reflective, representing the pear’s crisp, freckled peel. To wear on more sparkling occasions, a white gold version with a completely diamond-pavé pear is also available.
