Jewellery brand Pandora recently announced that it will fully use recycled silver and gold by 2025.

Silver is the most used material in Pandora jewellery.

“Silver and gold are beautiful jewellery materials that can be recycled forever without losing their quality. Metals mined centuries ago are just as good as new. They will never tarnish or decay. We wish to help develop a more responsible way of crafting affordable luxury like our jewellery, and prevent that these fine metals end up in landfills. We want to do our part to build a more circular economy,” Pandora CEO Alexander Lacik said in a statement.

Currently, 71 percent of the silver and gold used in Pandora jewellery comes from recycled sources, according to the company.

Flowing lines, softer shoulders and a sportier and an edgier look are among the key elements in Roberto Diz’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection.

  

According to the designer, the collection pays homage to the traditions and culture of Portugal and its most picturesque regions.

 

Fusing 1950s elegance with folklore and traditional clothing, Diz recreates classic cuts in natural fabrics. The filigree motif in the garments is echoed in the long earrings with cross pendants.

Ode to Venus

Juan Vidal pays homage to Venus in his Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. The garments – linen, organza, tulle and cotton poplin – are either embroidered or adorned with grapes, which are suggestive of the paintings by Michelangelo, or prints taken from Raphael’s frescoes, according to the designer.

  

Completing Vidal’s Spring/Summer look are long chain necklaces with pendants and earrings in fish motif – which, Vidal shared, were used in ancient Rome for the entertainment and courtship of high society – and hair ornaments and bracelets resembling wheat stalks.
