The Blackburn Collection was the brainchild of Russell Blackburn, owner of the prestigious London boutique. As the official UK stockiest of the full Claire Pettibone Bridal collection, Russell spotted brides were struggling to find jewellery and headdresses to compliment these distinctive gowns.
“We worked with Clare Yarwood-White and her team to create a range of accessories that are perfect for a Claire Pettibone bride. Many of the gowns feature antique lace, vintage style embellishments and embroideries and the new Yarwood-White collection compliments the dresses perfectly”

Unusually for bridal jewellery, the designs feature coloured gemstones and pearls. Talking about her inspiration for the collection, Clare Yarwood-White said
“The bride who wears Claire Pettibone does not follow the crowd, she is style-conscious but not slavishly fashionable and prefers to create a truly individual bridal look. By using dusky pinks, antique gold’s, smoky quartz and flashes of fuchsia crystal in our designs we have created vintage inspired accessories for brides who will set the new trends.”
The Blackburn Collection includes headbands crafted with gold-plated leaves, multi-layered rope necklaces, faceted gemstone chandelier earrings, statement cuffs, delicate pendants and antique style brooches and hair pins.
The collection will be available exclusively in the UK from Blackburn Bridal Couture, Blackheath, London, in the US from Claire Pettibone Bridal Couture in Beverly Hills, California and online at www.yarwood-white.com.
