  • The Sunshine Club London Pearl Charm Bracelet

    Sunshine Club London Pearl Bracelet

    Once the domain of the Queen and Madonna circa 1984, pearl jewellery is officially back on the style radar – and we’re loving The Sunshine Club’s take. “Necklaces and bracelets like this one with slightly irregular-shaped pearls are trending right now,” agrees Stylist’s acting executive fashion director Kitty McGee.

    While no two pieces are alike due to the individual nature of freshwater pearls, you can up the ante by adding up to nine letter or number charms to the bracelet, making it an ideal present for birthdays or bridesmaids.

    Founder and designer Jodie started The Sunshine Club during the first lockdown in 2020, inspired by all her favourite travel destinations, but this bestselling bracelet is named after her hometown of London.
