Win A Rose Gold Cottonwood Necklace With Grace & Valour

Grace & Valour is a new store which is passionate about stylish covetable jewellery. Designer in chief Rachel is a serial collector of jewels, curator of quotes, general lover of quirkiness and, as someone who has worked with Rachel many times, I can say that she is an absolutely lovely person. Rachel brings her 20 years of design experience to Grace & Valour.

Grace & Valour is named to reflect Rachel’s belief that you need both a spot of bravery and some good grace to overcome life’s trials and tribulations & keep smiling which I think is a great way to name a business, something that you believe in. 

The website isn't quite launched yet but when it does go live, it will sell the best quality jewellery, made with great care. All of the pieces will be either designed by Rachel, made by the studio or curated to bring you something unusual, their design studio is on a family farm in deepest Rutland.

Grace and Valour designs are mainly Sterling silver, in some instances we uses Silver coated with Gold or Rose Gold vermeil, semi precious stones & Swarovski Crystals.

I have teamed up with Grace & Valour today to bring you a gorgeous giveaway from one of their jewellery collections, a beautiful rose gold Cottonwood leaf necklace which is on a 24" chain with a 2" extension from the Blowing In The Wind collection. 

There's no doubt about it, rose gold is having a fashion moment with its warm, rich tones that are perfect for a dash of Autumnal colour. This stylish collection features hand picked real leaves, preserved with different finishes. Each leaf is a handcrafted piece of wearable art, unique and totally individual.

If you haven't seen the leaves, they're stunningly delicate with immense detail, but surprisingly robust.  With finishes as varied as gold, silver, brass, copper, irridescent, vintage silver and now rose gold they can be worn with almost any outfit, both as a dramatic choker, or at a fashionable long necklace length and both singularly or doubled up for maximum impact.

All purchases from Grace & Valour will arrive gift ready. Your purchases will be wrapped in purple tissue resplendent in their gift boxes or black wrap & carefully tied with ribbon. The Cottonwood leaf prize will arrive beautifully packaged in its own eco box.
