The ever-fashionable Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly, once said that amongst all the gems, she favoured pearls on screen and in her private life — a fashion statement that, to this day, still influences many women. However, if you’re a bit intimidated by this classic gem, you can turn to Atlas Pearls for their timeless yet modern approach to pearl jewellery.

“Our designs are stripped off of all unnecessary clutter, making the pearl the hero every time,” shares the brand’s Managing Director, Pierre Fallourd. True enough, they produce classic styles, which allow the wearer to dress the pieces up or down, depending on their mood or the event. Of course, a year-end party calls for nothing but ‘ropes and ropes of pearls’.

Nothing channels the festive mood best than a graceful ribbon, whether it’s tied around a pretty gift box, hung on a wall, or worn as an accessory. When Graff designed its stunning Bow collection, they must have the holiday spirit in mind. The collection perfectly captures the fluidity of silk twirled into a charming ribbon, as if beautifully and carefully tied by hand. All the more enchanting is the version set in diamonds and multi-shaped emeralds.
