How pretty is this necklace? Introducing a garnet and pearl pendant – courtesy of Hungerford-based Antique Jewellery Boutique. Oh, and did I mention, you could win it? Because you can.

Garnet and pearl necklace gold chain antique Jewellwey Boutique

We’re big fans of statement jewellery at Muddy – unique, a bit ‘look at me’ and, if you hunt down heirloom pieces, they can look very very expensive.

 

With party season fast approaching, the perfect way to amp up your old LBD is with a necklace that’s wowed at more parties than you’ve had canapés and Champagne. I don’t know if it’s something to do with the dark days and nights or me just being totally bored of all my simple jewellery, but I am really hankering after something individual.

 

Fight the urge to follow the Instagram herd and stand out from the crowd with vintage gemstone jewels – and you’ll be surprised at what you can get for your money. Believe it or not, you won’t have to sell a kidney.

 

This necklace (£189) from Hungerford-based Antique Jewellery Boutique is a case in point, with its three seed pearls and three small round garnets, with a fourth large pear-shaped garnet drop (NB if it’s your special day imminently – it’s the January birthstone) on a 16inch 9ct gold chain. Isn’t it soooooo pretty? And a bit unusual?

 

After many seasons of layering dainty, chic, fine gold necklaces it’s time to be bolder. This one’s not for sale… BOO… Because we’re only giving it away. WOOHOO. Yup, this beautiful pendant is a special Christmas gift from us to you. Enter here.
