Wouldn’t You Though?

I’m not thinking about Christmas yet – honest – but if I were thinking about it, a selection of these beauties from Wildacre would definitely be on my list.


Silver dish ring set with moonstone, £110

These gorgeous, nature-inspired pieces of jewellery are properly classy.  Deceptively simple gold and silver designs, set with some unusual and beautiful stones.


Tanzanite pebble ring, £110

They’re simple, they’re beautiful, and they’re not really out-of-reach expensive.  Perfect.  I like the rings a lot, but there are pendants, bracelets and earrings too.


Fallen pod cuff with tanzanite, £160


Fallen pod earrings with tanzanite, £155

They’re all designed and made by Herts jeweller Belinda Norrington, who has a strong commitment to the environment as well as to making beautiful things.  The silver and gold she uses are recycled, and she’s working hard to replace the toxic chemicals normally used in the processes with friendlier alternatives.  The stones she uses come from mines that treat both people and place well, too.


Diamond set gold pebble ring, £190

There’s lots of lovely browsing to be done on the Wildacre website, but she’s also happy to talk about commissions for bespoke pieces if you’ve got your own idea in mind — or perhaps a special occasion that is just crying out for a piece of jewellery to go with it.


Large swift pendant, £80 (my favourite, in case you’re curious…)

So, Mr C, do you have a list yet?  No?  Perhaps you’d like to see mine….

    Absolutely love the dramatically proud and clean design of the moonstone ring. Wonder how long it takes to get hold of the correct size, though? Would not rule out giving a commission.

      It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? On her website, Belinda estimates between 2-4 weeks for making a ring to order. Definitely worth getting in touch with her!

    Hi Joy, I can absolutely make you the ring in a bespoke size. Depending on the size you need it would take a maximum of 4 weeks but it might be considerably faster – do ping me an email with the size you require if you would like a definite answer on timescale. Thanks so much for your kind words about the ring, moonstones are one of my favourite stones!
