Wanderlust + Co reinvents classic gem shapes for the modern woman with Essentials - a collection of demi- fine pieces, consciously crafted at affordable price points, for everyday wear.
Celebrating the ethos of “fewer not faster”, “less is better” and sustainable production, this collection is an extension of the demi-fine range that we launched in Q4 of 2019. Crafted with premium gold vermeil and White Topaz, Essentials celebrates the four classic shapes in the jewelry world - circle, square, rectangle and pear.
These classic shapes from the fine jewelry world, have been translated into everyday pieces that you can do anything in. In line with our experience- centric ethos, each piece goes through a 30 day wear test by real women, before designs are produced, to ensure wearability, longevity and value for our #WCOgirlgang.
Made of 925 sterling silver base, 2.5 microns of 14K gold vermeil, White Topaz gems, and e-coated for extra lustre and shine, all Wanderlust + Co demi- fine pieces are hypoallergenic, nickel and lead-free.
Customers will find that the pieces are created to be lightweight and comfortable for everyday wear.
The star feature of the collection would be the brilliantly cut White Topaz gem within each piece. Upon close inspection, each gem is cut in a similar method to diamonds in an open prong setting. The timeless setting allows light to refract through to optimise the brilliance of the gem. Aptly named Brilliant, Princess, Baguette and Pear due to the way the gems are cut, the collection consists of the classic jewel categories – necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings.
The Essentials earrings series is available in four gem shapes - Brilliant, Princess, Baguette and Pear, and two sizes each - petite and standard, offering you a subtle petite or standard classic earring style. Meanwhile, those with multiple piercings have the option to style the different sizes side by side, or layer different shapes together, in a curated ear effect.
The Essentials necklace and bracelet series offer three gem shapes each - the Brilliant, Baguette and Pear, suspended from a fine yet sturdy jewel chain. This offers you the option of wearing it singularly for a classic finish, or layered for a statement finish.
The rings throughout the collection come in three gem shapes - Baguette, Brilliant and Pear, and two classic styles - pave and a classic band design. These different styles are all classic ring designs that you can wear often on its own, or stacked for a trendy yet refined finish. The classic designs also celebrate the rising trend of millennials spending less on engagement rings, and more on their first home or a travel adventure.
Founder Jenn Low attributes the Essentials collection to its #WCOgirlgang community, “As we continue to grow as a brand, we enjoy creating jewelry that evolves with the modern woman’s everyday life, which can take her from work, to yoga, to a school run, swim, shower, sleep - basically everything! Over the last year, my team and I have also worked hard to continue supporting BSCI certified production partners and skilled silversmiths. We enjoy championing pieces that are crafted in a slow and sustainable manner by individual artisans, and produced with care in small batches, as the fashion industry as a whole comes together globally to reduce waste and minimise our carbon footprint.”
