Pearl Bee Necklace
The Classic Pearl Bee Necklace is the first piece of jewellery Rachel designed and made for RWJ. Representing freedom, hard work and accomplishment the pearl bee has very special symbolism to this little business. And our customers too, the pearl bee necklace is our best selling design.
Made from solid sterling silver with a thick plating of 18ct yellow gold the pearl bee necklace is also available in sterling silver finish and rose gold vermeil.
With a creamy classic pearl abdomen the bee necklace is set with a sparkling white sapphire in its body. The bee is held on a delicate yet durable chain thread through its antennae and is ready to take flight at any moment with its highly polished and delicately textured wings.
All of our jewellery is lovingly designed and handmade in Rachel's Birmingham studio with help from casters and stone setters in the historic Birmingham Jewellery Quarter.
We recommend cleaning your jewellery gently with a jewellery polishing cloth and keeping your pieces away from perfumes, lotions and perspiration.

All Rachel Whitehead Jewellery is handmade in the UK.
We hand make all our jewellery in our small Birmingham studio. We don't always have stock of all designs so please get in touch if you need a piece for a particular date.
Your jewellery will be presented in a beautiful warm cream box with delicate tissue wrapping. Your order will be parcelled in a white outer box with no branding so not to give away any surprises!
Once your purchase has been dispatched we'll send you a tracking number so you can keep an eye on its journey to you.
All of our jewellery is made by Rachel in her workshop in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter in the United Kingdom.
I take a lot of my inspiration from the British summer time so it's important that my jewellery be made here.
I'm so lucky to be surrounded by so many talented casting companies, stone setters, hand engravers and gold platers in Birmingham and I think it's vital that we support them and keep their disciplines alive and available for generations of designers to come.
When you buy a piece of Rachel Whitehead Jewellery you're helping keep the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter the vibrant and vital centre of manufacture that it has been and should remain for years to come.
