Sparkle this winter with Rok Chix

Winter has been a long time coming this year, with many parts of the country having enjoyed unseasonably mild weather in recent weeks. But have no doubt, the big chill will arrive sooner or later.

While most people won’t be looking forward to freezing temperatures and limited hours of daylight, you’ve got to admit that winter is one hell of a stylish season. When else can you wear chunky knits, oversized coats, knee-high boots, faux fur hats and look like you’ve just stepped off the set of Dr Zhivago?

Then there are the jewels. Winter-inspired jewellery simply cries out for shimmering, luminous off-white pearls and ultra-ice-cool gemstones.

Here at Rok Chix we embrace the chilly season with our Silver Snowflake and Pearl Earrings, £45, and Silver Snowflake and Pearl Necklace, £45 – a set that features adorable handmade silver snowflake charms mixed with clusters of luminous off-white Keishi freshwater pearls.

Our best-selling Large Pearl and Silver Earrings, £25, make an altogether more classic style statement, featuring plump, juicy off-white  freshwater pearls that hang from simple, long silver wire drops.

More delicious large freshwater pearls also feature in our Silver Winter Star and Pearls Necklace, £75, this time in off-white, cream and peach, and combined with a handmade eight-point silver star pendant with hand-painted white enamel highlights.

Our Clear Quartz Crystal Nugget and Silver Ring, £80, meanwhile, combines a chunky silver band topped with a large, faceted quartz crystal nugget that’s so clear, it almost looks as if it would melt. And since each quartz nugget we use is unique, no two of these rings are ever the same.

Finally our Silver and Gemstone Rock Star Ring, £85, featuring a shimmering, off-white faceted moonstone is another cool customer and perfect for adding a touch of frost-inspired drama to any winter look.
