Jewellery Stacking

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see someone who’s style I admire I’m always checking out what jewellery and accessories they’re wearing. Investment accessories can totally make an outfit go from ok to wow. I truly believe that accessories are something you should build slowly over time, taking care in selecting each piece and picking capsule pieces you know you can wear easily with everything that add that wow factor. Here are a few themes I’ve noticed in elevating your accessory look:

Add some colour. A ring like a Toi & Moi ring is a gorgeous way to add a colourful stone (use your or a loved one’s birthstone!)

Add a watch. It doesn’t have to be expensive, and I love looking at vintage markets for vintage watches with unique chain links or delicate features. I have a vintage Gucci watch that I wear all the time, and I’ve been eyeing this brand for second-hand watches lately!

Mix silver & gold. This is obviously personal preference, but I like the idea of not sticking to one metal and mixing to add variety and interest. A ring like this is the perfect way to tie everything in!

Mix vintage & new. Some of the vintage styles you just can’t beat and it’s crucial for that unique ‘where did you get that?!’ look. If you’re in London, I love the markets in Brick Lane and Notting Hill for gorgeous, unique, affordable pieces to stack and layer.

Investment Jewelry

Lately I’ve been investing in jewelry that I’ll be wearing forever – classic, real gold pieces that don’t fade. Part of the process has been streamlining my jewelry collection, making sure each piece is considered and good quality. I recently discovered this jewelry shop based in New York and love all the designs, and also how everything is ethically sourced. These little studs are the perfect, classic addition to any collection!

Shop the post: gold earrings, hoop earrings (not one of my ‘investment’ pieces, but this is a great shop for affordable, beautiful jewelry) , silver ring, gold ring

Little Piercings

piercing3 piercings6 piercing1 piercing2So inspired by these delicate ear piercings – it’s sort of like stacking rings or bracelets but for your ear. I’ve been shopping for a few tiny earrings and am plotting out my piercing plan – I love the simplicity of the three in a row in the first image.

My top tips for multiple piercings:

01. Mix your metals! There are no rules about gold, silver, and rose gold, wear all three at one time.
02. Tiny shapes add interest and dimension – studs are classic but little triangles, flowers, and diamonds are perfect for this look!
03. Shop at independent jewelry shops {I love Natalie Marie Jewellry, Sarah & Sebastian, and of course Etsy}. I’m also loving new-to-me brand Shashi, super cute and affordable everything!
