Escape to Monte Carlo, Monaco

If you’ve been watching the BBC documentary you’ll have definitely caught several glimpses of why Monaco is so special. Glitz and glamour on every street corner, its not hard to see why so many people flock to this principality. We’ve loved seeing the sparkle, the supercars and the superyachts.

We weren’t quite in that league when we visited. We’d ridden the motorbikes across France from Brittany to Nice – an adventure in itself. We’d booked a beachfront apartment in Antibes and the sensation of taking off the leathers to plunge into the Mediterranean is something I’ll never forget. Over our time, we visited Cannes, the foothills of Nice and then Monaco. It was incredible to be able to ride through the streets and follow the route of the F1.

Looking out over the harbour, the boats were incredible. This place was oozing luxury. You can see why its been the set piece for James Bond. And yet, with all the prestige Monte Carlo is such a relaxed place.

What would we match to Monaco then? Our luxury rainbow tourmaline pieces have to be the choice. Tourmaline naturally occurs in a range of rainbow colours - gorgeous shades of pinks, reds, greens and purples; this statement ladies gemstone bracelet would make a beautiful and unique gift for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, Christmas, Mother's Day, graduation, thank you gift or just a gift to yourself and is suitable for both day and evening wear.

Tourmaline is the birthstone of October and has a long standing reputation for protection and healing. Each colour evokes a different sentiment – romance, spirituality, compassion, clarity and courage. This lovely bracelet is handmade, our natural rough semi precious gemstones are hand selected for quality and colour ensuring every piece of jewellery is unique. Each rough stone will vary slightly in size, shape and colour.
