We first discovered Decadorn Jewellery back in 2012, when we started stocking what would prove to be one of our best-sellers ever; the leather and crystal wrap bracelet. Made from beautifully soft leather and sparkling with crystals or metal beads, it still continues to be a real favourite in Gerrards.

Founder Helen Bailey worked as a Fashion and Interiors Buyer for over 10 years, before launching Decadorn in 2011 at her weekly stall in Spitalfields Market, Shoreditch, London. Her aim has always been to create unique, jewellery which is also affordable, and over the years her range has expanded to include stunning necklaces, earrings and rings.
Decadorn’s semi-precious stones are sourced from beneath the equator, and kept mostly in their unpolished state. Every piece is hand selected by Helen for its natural beauty, and no one piece is the same, meaning that when you choose a piece of Decadorn jewellery you truly have something unique and special.
Helen Bailey, founder of Decadorn
Do you believe in the healing properties of semi-precious stones? Whether you love semi-precious stones for their beauty, or appreciate their ancient connotations, I love the feeling that you can gain peace and confidence from wearing a piece of jewellery. I’m not sure whether it is the turbulent times we are living in, or the extra worries and challenges we feel exposed to in our daily lives, but I have noticed more people choosing jewellery (particularly gifts) for its meaningful properties rather than simply how it looks.
It seems particularly poignant that the Pantone-nominated colour of the year is rose quartz, which as a semi-precious stone, denotes the qualities of unconditional love, friendship and trust. We all need a little bit more of that in our lives!

I have also fallen in love with Decadorn’s triple stone pendants. From Helen’s new premium collection, the beautiful stones are dipped in 14ct gold and hang on a delicate gold filled chain.
Choose from ‘Healing, Calming, Confidence’, with a trio of quartz, amethyst and amazonite, or ‘Healing, Peace, Calming’, which swaps amazonite for deep midnight sodalite.
Decadorn Triple pendants, £46 each.
Our love affair with rose gold also continues, with these absolutely gorgeous floating pendants. Ocean Jasper and Aqua quartz sit suspended on the most delicate rose gold-filled chains. It’s a statement piece without looking ostentatious.
I had never heard of Ocean Jasper before; it is an unusual jasper found only at a remote location on the coast of Madagascar that can only be mined at low tide. The wild polka dots, wavy lines, multi colored floret patterns of Ocean Jasper make this a gorgeous and exciting stone. The positive vibrations of Ocean Jasper make it a stone of joy.
Premium Ocean Jasper and Aqua Quartz pendants on rose gold chains, £36 each.
Decadorn Amethyst slice pendants, £36 each.
I am so excited to be working with Decadorn Jewellery; the collection is beautiful and ever-evolving and Helen is a lovely person, with a true love for her designs. Exciting plans are afoot for the future, with an interiors range in the pipeline. Watch this space….and pop into the shop so see the new collection, and where you will find a newly-calm and serene me, adorned in crystals!
