Meet Thelma & Louise… thusly named because moving to Denmark has many times felt metaphorically like driving over a cliff!
Thelma & Louise are bespoke pieces made by my usual jeweler (Farringdons) in London’s Hatton Garden jewellery district. They’re a riff on a pair of vintage earrings that I liked, but thought too extravagant and gauche for daily wear.
To make the design more practical for modern times, the goldsmith made them as two separate pieces—a platinum 4-prong martini setting, each set with a certified ideal-cut .75 carat diamond—and a platinum jacket, each set with .55 carats of round brilliant diamonds.
I wear the studs everyday and add the jackets for formal occasions. They’ve kept the dimensions on file, so they can make additional studs with other stones, like sapphires to match Little Edie, or rubies to match a red dress—isn’t that brilliant?
So if you’re in London and are looking to buy a vintage, antique, or bespoke piece—or want to buy something beautiful and modern off the shelf, I wholeheartedly recommend taking a look in Farringdons‘ window!
