With Jubilee fever about to hit the nation, here at Debenhams we’ve been thinking about our own Crown Jewels – our stunning jewellery ranges to be precise.
Back when Kate said ‘I do’ to William, we’re willing to bet that her mind was thinking about her newly acquired access to the family jewels. Wearing a stunning dress by Alexander McQueen’s own Sarah Burton (jealous much, us?) and rocking a tiara on loan from the Queen herself, a nation was transfixed. We wanted to shine and shimmer like a Princess…. Fast forward to summer 2012 and the arrival of the latest jewellery ranges in store at Debenhams and oh look – now we can!
The arrival in store of No.1 by Jenny Packham seems to have re-sparked our love for sparkles, with a stunning jewellery range on offer alongside the beautiful occasionwear dresses. The necklaces (pictured above) are our personal favourites from the collection, especially the gold heart shaped locket – we’re keeping it in mind for when we marry Harry and become the nation’s ‘Queen of Hearts’.
Back to present day and our summer shopping wish list simply has to include an assortment of bangles and bracelets. Chunky, slinky, sparkly or glitzy, wrist adornments look amazing when teamed together so, take it from us, a few different styles piled one on top of the other creates a striking way to give a classic summer dress an instant sparkle – figuratively and literally.

And, while waiting for Harry to hand over that engagement ring, we’re more than happy to content ourselves with the ring selection at Debenhams this summer. If you’re into over-sized or understated, on-trend or classic, there’s a ring that fits.
For an eye-catching option we love the crystal dome ring from Star by Julien Macdonald and, just to drive home the point of how much we’re loving No.1 by Jenny Packham accessories, the silver cluster ring is already showing on both our finger… and our credit card bill. At least we can take comfort in the fact that Kate’s engagement ring can be ours, for a whole lot less, thanks to the replica creation by Jon Richard. Surely even our credit card company can’t complain about that…
In the earring department we’re also spoilt for choice, with drop styles and studs, simple or colourful, gold and silver – we admit the silver knot drop earrings at J by Jasper Conran are definitely a firm favourite. In fact, we’re already picturing teaming them with an outfit from the brand’s new capsule collection…
With the two combined, we might even go so far as to say we’ll look positively regal.
