The Story of the Piece

The infamous 500 year-old Peregrina Pearl was set in a custom necklace by no-holds-barred renegade Elizabeth Taylor in the 1960s. This statement limited edition necklace features a string of 48 freshwater, sustainably sourced pearls. With a distinct screw clasp delicately crafted in 18 karat gold vermeil, we think Elizabeth would have approved. 

La Peregrina Screw necklace is a limited edition of 250. Each one comes with an edition number etched into its surface, and an edition card signed by the designer. Once it's sold out, it's gone forever - so it's your chance to own a piece of design history.

Please note that limited edition pieces are non-returnable and non-exchangeable.

Every piece of Motley jewellery comes beautifully packaged and gift-ready, with its own free travel pouch and polishing cloth (whether that gift's for someone else, or for you)

About the Designer

Frances Wadsworth Jones is a British Jeweller and Royal College of Art graduate. Frances lives in London, where she runs her design studio. Her provocative style and eye for classic craftsmanship make her timeless, spirited pieces stand out.

Frances brings a rebellious edge to her jewellery, expressing an altogether more modern vision of femininity through her work. Freshwater pearls drilled with silver or gold screws challenge the old age outlook on pearls. We’d say her first Motley collection (and first time outside of high luxury) hits the nail on the head.

About the designer

Frances Wadsworth Jones

Frances Wadsworth Jones, or FWJ to the initiated, is a British Jeweller and Royal College of Art graduate. Frances lives in London, where she runs her design studio. She’s known for combining traditional craftsmanship techniques with subversive design.

The Screw You collection is a not-so-subtle rejection of the prim and proper pearls of twinsets gone by. We’d say her first Motley collection (and first time outside of high luxury) hits the nail on the head.
