Kokkino: beautiful silver earrings and silver jewellery!

Thursday February 16, 2012 by Samantha

Shimmer_Collection.jpgSilver earrings, silver bracelets and silver bangles are all desirable accessories worn by millions of ladies around the world, at Something Elegant we stock a huge range of silver jewellery to suit the taste and styles of many, one of our favourite current collections is Kokkino.

 

Kokkino was established in 2003 by Melanie Ankers; since 2003 Kokkino designs have developed a contemporary collection of silver earrings, bracelets, bangles and more that come in a range of bright colours. All of these fabulous pieces are designed and handmade here in the UK, based in Worcester. With a strong emphasis on simplicity of form and subtle use of colour, Kokkino designs use sterling silver, 22ct gold-plating, oxidising and many of their designs feature vitreous enamels in a wide variety of colours. The enamelling process takes time and care, each piece is kiln fired at 1000 degrees Celsius which is an old traditional skill used in contemporary jewellery design. If you are wondering where the name comes from quite simply Kokkino is the Greek work for the colour red.

At Something Elegant our Kokkino collection is also customisable, so if you have found a piece that you really like but you are unsure of the colour you can actually order the piece in a range of colours that you may prefer. A selection of the silver earrings, target studs,  are also available with interchangeable enamel, so you can purchase one set of earrings with a range of different colours to match different outfits. All of the items within this range are made to order so please consider that delivery will take roughly 1 – 2 weeks, definitely well worth the wait in our opinion!
