It will be released in all major Karen Millen stores and the womenswear brand’s online store in March next year, with prices ranging from £20 – £170.

“We are delighted to be working with Gecko as our new licensed jewellery partner,” says Beth Butterwick, CEO at Karen Millen. “It was clear through discussions we have a shared passion for delivering timeless quality and beauty for our global customer base. We are really excited about what the new collection brings.”
