Bond Girl bling

With the release of the new James Bond film Skyfall this weekend we’re already swooning over the latest Bond girls and their cool and collected style, not to mention Daniel Craig’s! (ahem)

With this in mind we are eager to model ourselves on their sultry style that oozes all the way from Hollywood via Pinewood to our very own UK high street! With this in mind what better way to celebrate the launch of the new Bond film than with our very own homage to the legendary and timeless Bond girl style!

Ursula Andress is often regarded as the quintessential Bond girl after her role in the first ever Bond movie, Dr No. The Swiss beauty soared to fame and was universally known for wearing ‘that’ bikini in which she rises from the sea. As with every Bond girl, they transcend instantaneously from high action diva to the classy and elegant woman found on James Bond’s arm at the most glamorous of events.

In one scene, Ursula Andress otherwise known as Honey Ryder, wears a show stopping pair of pearl drop earrings. Teamed with a sultry black dress these statement earrings ooze sophistication. If you’re looking for class with a touch of the trademark Bond glamour, our Sea Mist collection could be the perfect way to claim this timeless look for yourself.

We love this pair of earrings set with delicately dazzling diamonds and a shimmering cultured freshwater pearl. These are sure to add a glittering statement to your party dress this season.

So let’s fast track into the future of James Bond and we have Halle Berry, who in a nod to Ursula Andress, also emerged from the sea, clad in that famous orange bikini. It’s quite clear that every Bond girl needs a statement bikini and what better action girl accessory to accompany it, than a water resistant luxury watch for when manoeuvring between undercover reconnaissance and hand to hand combat, time is most definitely of the essence.

With Omega, being a lifelong 007 favourite, Bond girls would do well to follow his leading man routine.  This stunning Omega Seamaster watch is every ounce the glamorous accessory for any Bond girl. With a stainless steel bracelet, elegant black face and a glittering diamond bezel, not only is this luxurious time piece beautiful, it is also 300m water resistant, perfect to carry you through from fighting off the bad guys, to romancing your very own James Bond…

With the release of Skyfall, we have two new and obviously beautiful Bond Girls, Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe. We can only imagine the strong yet glamorous style they will bring to the big screen and we can’t wait to swoon over their elegance and of course their desirable lifestyle! (Yes, we would all like to be the epitome of espionage chic).

Until we see the highly anticipated film for ourselves, we have put together a few pieces we think will be every inch the Bond girl style this season including this stunning 18ct white gold half carat diamond ring. This stunning ring will add a luxurious look to any evening or party dress this Autumn/Winter. Team with an elegant cocktail dress to add a pop of sparkle.

Dazzle in Swarovski crystal this season too, with our beautiful range of jewellery. This glittering selection of jewellery including pendants, earrings and bracelets are sure to bring that Bond girl evening look to any outfit this season. 

For more of our great Bond Girl inspired pieces, take a look at our Bond Pinterest board!

And we can’t leave without something for the man himself… Bond, James Bond! So if you fancy treating your man to a little Bond shaken not stirred style, this Omega Skyfall 007 Seamaster men's bracelet watch is the way to do it. With a sleek stainless steel bracelet and black dial featuring a date function and iconic ‘007’ logo, the only thing you need to add is the tuxedo, martini and an Aston Martin.

Pink party time!

We're having a party at Ernest Jones this weekend and you're all invited!

As some of you will know, it's Breast Cancer Care time and to draw attention to, and to support this marvelous cause, Ernest Jones are very proud to have launched Chamilia's exclusive Breast Cancer Care lines. We've posted about the collection a lot on our Ernest Jones Facebook page and from what we can see, you're all loving it.

So what better way to pledge it pink, than for us to hold our very own Breast Cancer Care parties in store with the opportunity for you to pick up the pieces for yourself, pay it forward to a great charity and enter our prize draw for your chance to win a luxury spa break for two when you purchase one of the Chamilia Breast Cancer Care bracelets (terms and conditions apply, see in store for details).

For every Chamilia Breast Cancer Care bracelet sold, £10 goes toward the charity. And for those of you who are already keen Chamilia collectors, you can add any pink Chamilia bead to your current collection, from which £5 will be donated to the charity.

So if you'd like to get involved pop into any Ernest Jones store (excluding Oxford Street's Boutique) on October 5-7 where we'll be hosting the parties, or if you can't make it but still want to show your support, you can order the exclusive lines online.
