Collection In Focus – Pussy Couture

with one comment

Sugarpuss London’s Pussy Couture range is designed for the descerning collector – although all of our jewellery is handmade with the utmost care and attention, our couture range features exquisite pieces made of premium materials.  We know a piece will make our couture line when we finish it and say ‘wow’.  

We are using this article, therefore, to shamelessly plug a few of our very favourite pieces:

AAA+ Songea Sapphire Earrings

AAA+ Songea Sapphire Earrings

These AAA+ Songea Sapphire Earrings, then, are handmade from twenty tiny but perfect AAA+ Tanzanian Songea sapphires in gorgeous shades of lemon yellow to mandarin-peach. Each briolette measures 2-3mm’s and is hand wrapped securely in sterling silver before being hung on Karen hill tribe hammered hoops and oversized hook wires (sterling sapphire). Each sapphire is gemmy and clear and guaranteed to be 100% natural. 

GBP £110.

The price of sapphire jewellery depends largely on whether the sapphires you are buying are high quality.  High quality sapphires are transparent rather than opaque and clean throughout, with no cracks , feathers, or black inclusions.  The sapphires used in our AAA+ Songea Sapphire Earrings are of absolutely premium gem quality.

Coober Pedy & Owyhee Opal Bracelet

Coober Pedy & Owyhee Opal Bracelet

This Coober Pedy & Owyhee Opal Bracelet is handmade from rondelles of Coober Pedy Australian opal and slightly chunkier rondelles of incredibly rare robin’s egg blue Owyhee opal from Oregan, USA. The Coober Pedy opal is milky white with a blue tinge when looked at straight on but when the light catches it, it glows a lovely amber colour that teems beautifully with the Owyhee opal (one of our favourite stones). The opal in this bracelet is accented by small Karen hill tribe silver beads finished with an oxidised rose clasp, with ‘S’ shaped closure, also made by a member of the Karen hill tribe in Northern Thailand.   All of the Hill tribe silver in this bracelet was ethically sourced from the Chiang Mai province directly from the artisans themselves.

GBP £245

Owyhee opal is, as mentioned above, incredibly rare – a company called Silver Streams own the mine and very little cut material is put out onto the market.  Sugarpuss London have fallen madly in love with Owyhee opal and try and snap as much of it up as possible whenever we see it.  We are currently in possession of several strands of mini faceted rondelles and some pretty heart shaped faceted briolettes – so look our for more Owyhee opal jewellery in the near future. 

Phosphosiderite & Pebble Pearl Necklace with Amethyst

Phosphosiderite & Pebble Pearl Necklace with Amethyst

This Phosphosiderite & Pebble Pearl Necklace is handmade using a large, natural and highly rare orchid colour Phosphosiderite briolette from South America. This briolette is a particularly clean and matrix free example and is hand-wrapped in sterling silver and strung as a focal on a chain of hand wrapped creamy white pebble pearls.

This necklace is finished with a sterling silver spring ring clasp and accented at by two AAA liliac amethyst briolettes that compliment the focal bead and provide interest for the back of the neck.

GBP £95

Sugarpuss London are in possession of a large amount of phosphosiderite and have briolettes similar to the one above but with more matrix running through it – we can make necklaces similar in design using these lesser grade briolettes at prices starting from just £35 – simply contact us at bespoke@sugarpusslondon.com for more details.

  1. The Phosphosiderite & Pebble Pearl Necklace with Amethyst looks lovely indeed, with its soft and dainty color! I just love its color with lavender shade combined with the creamy white pearls. 🙂
