Embrace Ultimate ‘Barbiecore’ With This Fine, Warm Metal Set
In recent years, gold jewelry has reached its pinnacle. Before, this warm metal was actually seen and considered as too bling-y and over the top—not to be worn daily but only on special occasions. The drastic shift in gold jewelry design (from baroque, ornate settings to clean, modern lines and subtly abstract shapes) has contributed to its comeback—not to mention that each piece is now deemed as a sound investment and heirloom.
And we’re totally here for it. That doesn’t mean, though, that you can’t get boho and playful in your personal styling. Hearts & Arrows has made sure of this when they released their Barbie™ Collection this year consisting of yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold stunners in 14 karat.
Established in 2003, the brand’s popularly known for their specialty-cut diamonds crafted with precision and made to showcase optical patterns of eight hearts and eight arrows, which you can see magnified through a loupe. They’re also best known for producing world-class fine jewelry pieces in different price points.
Hearts & Arrows’ collaboration with Mattel’s Barbie™ has resulted in an 11-piece repertoire. The anthology speaks of Barbie™’s age-old and universal message that “you can be anything” if you set your heart and mind to it.
One of the brand’s versatile and buildable three-piece selection is the Barbie™ Heart Princess Set—all in 14-karat yellow gold with pink tourmaline gemstones as accents. In our fashion books, the set is the ultimate way to channel ‘Barbiecore’ and represent your inner Barbie.
The glittering repertoire consists of a pair of earrings, a necklace, and a ring. All luxury pieces are stamped and hallmarked with “H&A 585” and trademarked with “©Mattel.”
Strung from a dainty and adjustable yellow gold chain, the necklace at P18,000, measures 18 inches with a signature “B” charm (for Barbie, of course!) and a heart-shaped pink tourmaline pendant at 0.316CT.
The matching earrings come with a butterfly earlock that you can push and pull for easy wear and encrusted with heart-shaped pink tourmalines at a total of 0.629CT. The pair retails for P25,000.
The ring still carries a heart-shaped pink tourmaline gemstone at 0.322CT to match the set and retails from P27,000 to P32,800. The final price will depend on your ring size—it’s good to know that you can cop sizes ranging from 8 to 12.5 (18.2mm to 21.8mm).
Wearing the pieces, individually or together, are perfect to top off your Barbie-inspired outfits—or when you want to step into Barbie’s pink and playful world. They can also be a princess-y present to a die-hard Barbie fan—so a gift to yourself, perhaps? *wink, wink*
We totally dig the pink tourmaline stones in this specific set. If you’re into crystals and gemstones, you’d know that this pink stone represents love of humanity and sympathy and carries the virtues of unconditional love and friendship—yet another reason to cop the collection because of the symbolism and (princess-y) power that comes along with it.
Hearts & Arrows’ Barbie™ collection is now available at all SM boutiques of Hearts & Arrows. All pieces are wearable on the daily for whatever look you desire—Barbie™ or otherwise.
