They are also highly wearable, with a range of necklaces, bracelets and chains meaning you can create the exact look you desire.

Iridiscent Glamour with new Antica Murrina collection.

fabulous have long been fans of Italian designers Antica Murrina’s beautiful Venetian Glass jewellery, which combine the translucent, light-catching qualities of glass with fashion-forward designs.

Their newest additions to the collection feature beautiful, delicate hues of purple, pinks and blues and some really interesting and unusual designs.

Our particular favourites are the Iride pendant – with its bold, striped blocks of purple, pink and mauve it’s the perfect piece to make a statement this season. We also love the Celebrity necklace, with its multi-strand look and beads of delicate blues, turquoise and grey offering an instant flash of glamour and sophistication. There are matching items for every piece, and as the colours complement each other you can also mix and match designs for a more eclectic feel.
