Anton Heunis says that his fascination with women’s jewellery was inspired by his grandmother’s jewel laden dressing table, but unfortunately this necklace looks less vintage glamour, more Strictly Come Dancing costume jewellery.
Covered with more spangles than a pair of Pat Butcher’s earrings, this necklace verges on the gaudy side of glam. With a Swarovski crystal brooch and a crystal trim atop a jumble of green malachite pieces, this necklace is almost claustrophobically overcrowded.
Yes, Heunis’ design demands your attention, but with so much going on are you wearing a necklace, or is your necklace wearing you?
If magpie style is your thing, fear not, it is possible to pull off Heunis’ design without looking like a Lily Savage impersonator; just chose your outfit with utmost care.
Think Calvin Klein and Celine style minimalism, clean lines and muted tones teamed with a sleek ponytail and little else for a glamorous summer look that will attract attention for all the right reasons.
