Why it’s Motley

Referencing Ancient Egyptian iconography, Emily Robson's sphinx necklace is a modern-day talisman. Sitting just below the collar bone and crafted in 18 karat gold vermeil, it's our ultimate everyday adornment or the perfect gift for an ancient history lover. All hail.

The Motley Everyday collection celebrates understated genius; small but mighty, each piece of jewellery holds its own. Not to be underestimated.

About the Designer

Ex-Christopher Kane designer Emily Robson draws inspiration from all over the world for her distinctive jewellery, often referencing ancient artisanal techniques. Her bold and brilliant collection for MOTLEY is a classic Robson riff on Egyptian iconography, featuring jackals, sphinxes and torques. Check out more of her work here.

What is Gold Vermeil?

Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) refers to jewellery that is sterling silver plated with gold to a thickness of between 2 and 3 microns. Using sterling silver as a base and plating with double the thickness of commercial “flash plating” produces a more resilient layer of gold that doesn’t wear away and ensures our jewellery is hypoallergenic. We use 18 karat gold in our plate.
