For this edition of Behind the Best we’re turning the spotlight to our Georgie earrings. They’re our largest hoop earrings, offering you all the razzle-dazzle of a statement chunky hoop without the weight. That means you can look your best for as long as you like. Wear them from coffee in the morning to drinks and dancing in the evening - why the hell not?
We love a good statement piece. You could probably argue that most of our jewellery designs fit into that category (depending on where you sit on the ‘making a splash’ scale). So when we set out to create a chunky hoop earring, we felt the only way to make one, was to do it the Best way. Hollow, easy to wear and above all - beautiful. We should also mention they’re great for nights out - partly what inspired them. Here’s Rebecca, our founder, talking about the need for party-proof jewellery.
“They’re light enough to dance all night long, swishing your head back and forth and thanks to the neat clasp mechanism, they won’t slip out in the process. Believe me - I’ve tested this.”
Some of the best jewellery pieces we can think of are the ones you can make a signature piece for yourself, without being uncomfortable or feeling like the piece is wearing you. That’s why we always balance wearability, durability and looks. Rebecca explains more about the design of the Georgie earrings below.
“I am often told by customers they are so surprised at how light our hoops are. Everyone always expects them to be heavy and weighty due to their chunkiness. This is what I really appreciate about the art of hollow jewellery. It allows you to really push the boundaries of size/scale while still being comfortable to wear all day.”
We often have customers ask us how we would wear a Best jewellery piece. The short answer is: However you’d like! The long answer is: However you’d like and don’t let anyone tell you different! Rebecca continues below, pointing out how you can wear them with pretty much anything.
“The Georgies are our biggest hoop so they really do appear heavier than they are. Our goal has always been to make jewellery that is comfortable enough for everyday wear while still accentuating your unique style. As someone who mostly has a minimal wardrobe of classics and as someone who always chooses comfort over all else, the Georgie earrings really needed to fit this brief. I find pairing them with a classic white tee and a pair of tailored pants looks exceptional and then I see them worn on a fancy night out in a glittery dress and find they look exceptional too. They really can be worn with any outfit at any time of day and make a statement.”
