What a lucky girl I am, Claudia Bradby chose a piece of jewellery from one of their collections especially for me. They'd obviously gone to a lot of time and trouble to 'get to know' me and my style because they got it bob on. I'll show you later what they sent.
I spent a very pleasurable half hour the other day browsing the different designs and it struck me that Claudia Bradby really do have something for everyone. It's a great way to illustrate the different style personalities.
Shall we crack on?

Recap: quirky dress sense | doesn't follow rules | not afraid to mix styles
I've chosen a mixture of different bracelets for you. You're brave and will happily try different things together. You like to make everything you wear your own. So a traditional pearl bracelet mixed with a more contemporary one for starters. And for the really brave, you'll feel right at home mixing a tribal vibe in there too.

Bedruthan Silver Coin Pearl Bracelet
Tribal Pearl Bracelet
And you won't even mind about the clashing metals! Now that would totally freak me out. I'd happily wear any of the above but not together, it's just not me. I'm so far removed from the creative personality, it's laughable.
Celebrity Style Icon: Naomi Campbell
Recap: loves to shop | a definite fashionista | scoures magazines for inspiration : wears bold, dramatic pieces
I had to choose the Tribal Pearl necklace for you. And you'll probably buy the matching statement bracelet above as well. Bold and striking pieces will work well with your statement wardrobe.

Recap: feminine and ladylike | loves pretty things
Gosh this next piece is so so pretty. Perfect for the Romantic. It's delicacy, it's colour, even it's name. You'll absolutely adore wearing and touching it.

this piece too.

Recap: classic by name classic by nature | loves timeless and elegant pieces | smart and understated
A true classic will no doubt already have something pearl in their jewellery box (which will by the way be well ordered, clean and tidy). So, I've chosen you a pair of stunning pearl earrings. I could have gone for traditional studs but you may well have these already. So, I've picked out a small drop pearl in a beautiful understated colour.
Margarita Pearl Drop Earrings
They're not too long a drop, don't worry. I'm all about modernising the classic. We're not talking Margaret Thatcher territory any more. These are still a classic shape with a modern twist. The subtle silver sheen is just stunning don't you think?
Celebrity Style Icon: Kate Winslet
Recap: relaxed and informal | comfort is important | minimal jewellery
Feeling comfortable in your clothes takes priority over anything else. Your wardrobe will be made up of casual pieces such as jeans and t-shirts. Your jewellery will be minimal and maybe even have an ethnic vibe. Bracelets might be a no-no - they get in the way. So I've chosen you a simple almost home crafted feel necklace.
The World Is Your Oyster Necklace
It's sits on the collar bone so won't get in the way - god forbid anything that jangles and dangles! Please please please don't be tempted to remove the lovely pearl though!!!
Celebrity Style Icon: Sharon Stone
Recap: follow trends rather than high fashion | simple clothes teamed with stunning, well chosen accessories | colour is used with caution
You shop with care and don't make many mistakes. Your clothes are simple but teamed with beautiful accessories. This rose gold pendant will look beautiful against your clothes (which may be in the main, neutral colours). I fall into this category.
Double Halo Rose Gold Long Necklace
And this is what I was sent. To say I was delighted, is an understatement. It's just perfect. I couldn't have chosen better myself. Worn with my Monica Vinader rose gold and silver necklace.
What a lovely, useful piece this will be in my wardrobe. I now need to source an equally beautiful rose gold bangle or bracelet. Oh look, there's this one.
And the necklace got it's first wear today.
