Our Summer Picks from Olivia Burton 2023
A floral dial is an Olivia Burton signature, so we just had to start with the brand’s latest blooming style. Drawing inspiration from the resilience of nature, this emerald green 34mm dial is adorned with delicate floral detail. Combined with a contemporary T-Bar design, gold-plated bracelet strap and a dazzling crystal bezel, this style makes for a minimal but pretty take on florals. We love the bold green of this dial, but for a more understated look, this watch also comes in top-to-toe silver (24000042).
Pair it with: Olivia Burton Classic Illusion Gold-Tone Stacking Necklace Set 24100074
When it comes to necklaces, why settle for one? To complement the gold tones of the watch, why not pair it with this layered necklace set? Three gold-tone chains of varying lengths stack perfectly together, going you a stylish layered look with none of the hassle. Each necklace has its own spring-ring fastening, so you can wear separately or together, mixing and matching with your existing jewellery collection for even more looks. If you’re more of a silver jewellery person, don’t worry! Luckily, this beautiful set also comes in a silver-tone colourway (24100075). This watch and necklace combo instantly elevates your everyday look.
Another favourite piece for summer is the nature-inspired Olivia Burton Signature Bee Watch. At home in Britain’s glorious countryside, the bee has always been an iconic symbol for the brand, and has now been reimagined in a contemporary, luxe style. A petite 28mm gold-tone sunray dial is the perfect setting for an intricate bee motif. Ticking over the motif are slim gold-tone hands, and – for precise timekeeping – there are four baton indices at the principal hour placements. Finishing the design is a minimalistic gold-tone stainless steel Milanese mesh bracelet for a luxe feel. Stylish and unique, the Signature Bee is a modern heirloom to be adored for generations.
Pair it with: Olivia Burton Gold-Plated Pearl Cluster Bracelet 24100069
The ultra-slim case on this watch makes it perfect for layering with other pieces, like this Pearl Cluster Bracelet from the Classics collection. Featuring clusters of round faux pearls along a gold-plated chain, each pearl trio takes on a pretty floral shape, making it a fitting accompaniment to the brand’s nature-inspired timepieces.
Olivia Burton’s Celestial collection is inspired by the mysterious magic of the cosmos and this dial is no exception. The Celestial Starlight watch features a crystal-set North Star marker on a gentle blush-pink dial. Notice the intricate light beam engravings emanating from the North Star for added texture. Silver-tone hands and dot indices complement the soft colour palette. The dial is housed in a 36mm stainless steel case which measures 7mm in depth for a chunky, statement feel. Finished with a luxurious stainless steel bracelet strap with a fold-over clasp, this is a star-studded piece we’ll be wearing all summer long.
Pair it with: Olivia Burton Stainless Steel Crystal-Set Celestial Stud Earrings Set 24100063
To add some more cosmic energy to your look, the Celestial North Star and Moon Stud Set is inspired by the night sky. The set includes three pairs of stainless steel studs and allows you to create a look featuring all of your ear piercings at once. The crescent moon studs are embellished with eight glowing crystals and are the largest in the set. A signature OB North Star is next along with a tiny five-point star, each set with a crystal in its centre. Created with the upmost attention to detail, this trio of studs remind us of the divine feminine connection to the world around and above us.
Our next Olivia Burton pick will make any romantic swoon. An old favourite, we couldn’t resist including this dainty heart-shaped 22mm dial in our summer round-up. With a rose gold-tone case and iridescent mother of pearl dial, this piece has a soft, elegant shimmer that really makes it stand out on the wrist. An intricate bee marks the 12 o’clock position with petite crystal-set indices marking the rest. An ion-plated rose gold stainless steel Milanese mesh bracelet secures this sweet design to the wrist. Likely to capture the hearts of many, this rose gold beauty makes the perfect meaningful gift or treat this summer.
Pair it with: Olivia Burton Classic Entwine Rose Gold Hoop Earrings 24100009
Why not pair the dainty Meant To Bee watch with these Classic Entwine rose gold hoop earrings? Symbolising harmony, balance and tranquillity, the mismatched double hoop design lends a contemporary feel to a sweet watch. The outer hoop features an all-over embellished crystal-set look, whilst the inner hoops have a polished rose gold-tone
stainless steel finish. We love how they give the look of layered earrings in just a single stud.
Minimal and clean, the Sports Luxe Hexa is perfect for those who enjoy a dose of elevated sophistication. Adorning a white 33m dial are rose gold baton indices and three hands for precise functionality. A polished silver-tone bezel features rose gold and crystal detailing for a cool, mixed metal look. Finished with a stainless steel bracelet strap for the ultimate luxe look this summer.
Pair it with: Olivia Burton Sparkle Butterfly Cubic Zirconia Rose Gold Ring OBJMBR11
We love a contrast, so we’d pair a Sports Luxe watch with this stunning Sparkle Butterfly ring. Two butterflies wind elegantly around your finger, set with round and marquise-cut crystals. This rose-gold plated piece features an open-ended design, which as well as being super pretty, makes it comfy and versatile for different ring sizes. A beautiful piece that will add sparkle to any look.
