Katie Hillier SS11

Style :
Gold bunny with diamonds £1,760 

Oh, can this Chinese year of the bunny get any better? Katie Hillier, who I have blogged about almost obsessively, has introduced a new take on her classic paperclip doodle bunny, the solid gold 'mother' bunny and surrounded with pave diamonds. It may be focused towards the girls, but even us guys can admire the quality of workmanship and decadence that has gone into the piece. 

Yellow 18ct gold hedgehog with black diamond, £795; silver hedgehog with onyx, £295

The Hillier line has developed for this season as there has been an introduction of more paperclip doodle animals such as these below, the hedgehog, tortoise and bee. Both available in 18 carat yellow gold or silver, the pieces feature the sparkling wink in either precious or semi-precious gems, depending on your choice of metal. I love, love, love both and it is not hard to see why - they have a certain charm and classic style that means each piece is almost an inheritance piece. Worn over or under an item of clothing, the investment potential of these is great but just for the pure pleasure of owning one outweighs all of the practical points of buying jewelry.

Yellow 18ct gold bumblebee with champagne diamond, £795, silver bumblebee with citrine, £295 

Hillier is available to buy at various stores in Europe, including the achingly cool Colette on the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore in Paris. Katie Hillier has launched a range of other pieces including bracelets and stacking rings so keep a close eye out.
