Since winter properly set in I’ve stopped wearing necklaces completely. There doesn’t seem to be much point when they’re always hidden under a scarf, snood or roll neck jumper. But in their place I’ve added delicate bracelets and skinny stacking rings. Here’s a closer look at the pieces currently on rotation in my winter jewellery box…
1. Dower & Hall beaded bracelet c/o. This rose gold beaded bracelet found it’s way into my jewellery box over London Fashion, and I’ve barely taken it off since! It’s a great piece for layering, as it’s so delicate and the grey beads go with everything.
2. Assorted rings from Monica Vinader c/o. The new Ring Stacker tool on monicavinader.com is so much fun and kept me busy last weekend. The MV team invited me to test the clever #stackandshare page, and after creating a selection of styles I finally settled on these skinny gold bands. If you’re a bit of a jewellery magpie have a go too, as it’s a really fun way to spend 30 minutes (or in my case, three hours).
3. Astley Clarke bracelet. I’ve had this carnelilan and chain charm bracelet for a few years now, and it’s still one of my most worn jewellery items. I’ve never been a fan of charms, so I leave it naked and stack it up with a handful of delicate chains. It also looks great with my Michael Kors watch, which is an added bonus!
4. Kurt Geiger bracelet. I spotted this chunky gold chain in the South Molton street store earlier this week and couldn’t leave without it. I’d had my eye on the J.Crew chain bracelet for ages, but when I finally tried it on I devastatingly discovered it’s too big for me. So this Kurt Geiger design came into my life at the perfect moment! Word of warning though: when I got home I discovered the clasp is broken, so I’m going to have to go back and exchange it. If you buy one too make sure you try it on in store before leaving.
5. & Other Stories rings. I can’t go into & Other Stories on Regent Street without buying myself a little treat. Their jewellery edit is really strong and – lucky for my wallet – the price points are bargain-a-licious. This silver and gold ring duo cost £5 and I’ve worn them every day for at least three months. Definitely hit up their jewellery section for stocking fillers this Christmas!
6. Lucy Folk friendship bracelets c/o. These Taco Shell friendship bracelets are more of a summer item, but I’ve been adding them into my winter jewellery rotation lately, as it’s nice to have a reminder of the sunshine. Lucy is one of my favourite young jewellery designers right now, as all of her collections are inspired by food. Find her pieces at Matches.
And I also have my eye on these pretty pieces…
