AS29: Diamonds, Jewels and Champagne

September 10, 2014

Yesterday, I was treated to the most glamorous lunch in the Chinese Room at London’s swanky Blake’s hotel for the launch of jewellery brand AS29’s new collection. Walking into the room was breathtaking, the table was adorned with the most stunning flower arrangement (which I’m told was entirely put together by the jewellery designer, Audrey Savranksky, herself after buying them at Covent Garden Flower Market the day before!), and the stunning jewellery was placed all around the table for us to gawp and try on. The table was literately sparkling. Her designs are undeniably elegant, glamorous and yet on-trend and original. The lightning bolt and wing designs were my personal favourite, followed by the signature simple diamond-encrusted ‘knuckle-dusters’. Her show-stopping earrings were also a wonder to us all because while looking like they might drag your ears to the floor and leave you a little sore at the end of the night, they felt unbelievably light. Audrey informed us that the trick to this is that no earring should way more than 12g each – so if you wanted to wear these dangling beauties every day then you could. In that case, I will be wearing mine to the supermarket!
