Suddenly, after years of being out in the wilderness, jewellery is back with a vengeance!
There is obviously so much to choose from and I am just sharing the pieces that I have spotted whilst out and about..
First of all is Adriana Chede, I bought one of her bracelets and I literally haven’t taken it off since. It is still glistening and I love the fact that the piece is so delicate yet robust, so next on my list is one of her necklaces. Her pieces are beautifully made and will last abd they are also not ‘of the moment’ so they will not date.
Another under the radar but fabulous brand is Amanda Lever – I have ordered one of her necklaces.
I love a statement piece and the brands that I have checked out and can vouch for are:-
Susan Caplan; she stocks all those Albert T Bar chains from £30. Her site is piled high with wonderful vintage finds, including the one below.
My personal favourite is Jagged Metal, all the pieces are carefully curated and they are fantastic value for money.
I have learned from the two sites above which brands to look out for:
Vintage Christian Dior
Look for pieces from Trifari
Boutique Second Life is a treasure trove – they take Chanel buttons and Louis Vuitton locks and remake them into contemporary pieces of jewellery.
I also bought the most divine solid gold ankle chain from Elizabeth Jewellers and it was a fraction of what I would have paid in a store.
For a bit of fun check out Bonk Ibiza Bracelets on Etsy – great for layering in the summer.
Another piece huge on social media is the Tiffany T wire bracelet.
They are a fortune! Amazon has already done their own version for £25!
Layer the pieces with a simple t-shirt, sweatshirt or cashmere. For me, i’d either go for fine solid gold pieces, which you can wear for ever, or, invest in a branded piece which will hold its value, alternatively, look for vintage pieces. There is no need to spend a fortune as there are a plethora of brands offering reconditioned vintage. Check out Ebay, it’s awash with choice.
I would love to know about any other brands that you love so that I can include them in my next edit.
