Around the age of 15 I went through a brief phase of layering faux-pearl necklaces together with gold jewellery, in homage to Carrie Bradshaw. However, aside from that brief dalliance I’ve never really been a fan of pearls. They always seemed a bit old fashioned and retro.

So I never expected a day to come when I’d be coveting a pearl necklace. But then Alighieri’s gold-plated design isn’t like other pearl necklaces. It’s feminine, sure. But also bold and a little bit edgy – as there’s nothing delicate and demure about that oversized, freshwater pearl.

The necklace is topping my Wish List, this week. Along with Warehouse’s check print sandals, Zac Posen’s colour-block handbag and Topshop’s rust orange blouse.
