This month sees Chupi celebrate its 5th Birthday, but the Irish jewellery brand is the one giving us a gift with the launch of their SS18 collection.
Alongside sparkling solid gold jewellery, the new range includes a brand new collection of headpieces combs and belts in gold and silver, unlike anything we’ve seen from the designer before.
The entire new range is available to purchase this week in an exclusive online only presale before the full collection is launched next week.
Designer Chupi Sweetman says of the new accessories collection: “I’ve been so lucky over the last few years to get to make so many beautiful engagement rings for some incredible Chupi brides.”
“I wanted to celebrate with a collection of crowns and headpieces that will work for a modern bride, the kind of women who will wear a veil but who wants something sparkly for her hair when she’s dancing the night away,” Chupi said of the inspiration behind the range.
“I remember only too well how when I got married a few years ago it was impossible to find a beautiful headpiece that wasn’t just white and lacy, I wanted something I could wear again, a piece that would become an heirloom that I would one day pass on.”
“I ended up fashioning a headpiece from a basic gold headband, a pair of our raspberry leaf earrings and some wild flowers!,” she added.
This new collection isn’t just for brides however, these are pieces that can be worn by everyone from brides to bridesmaids, those attending weddings and anything in between.”

Gold belts range from €469- €589 and Silver belts from €439 – €559.
