I am a massive fan of light delicate jewellery, big bracelets or necklaces can really irritate me. So Winden‘s collection instantly attracted me! Such simple designs and I love their unique earring styles for multiple piercings. Likewise the rings and necklaces appear light and very ethereal. The only downside is you will have to save up before you buy, if not, anything from their collection would make a beautiful present.
I was intantly struct by the simplicity and modernity of thpshop’s jewellery. They also have a sleek Insta account and website – very monochrome!
Vanessa, the founder of the Haute Pursuit is the Creative Director of the label and is equally the face of the brand – stunning, i think you will agree.
As well as delicate rings and earring, she sells beautiful bright faux fur jackets. You might have seen Danielle, blogger of Weworewhat (pictured),and Eva Chan wearing the Marigold Faux Fur!

I came across Matilda Accessories while looking for silver jewellery on Instagram. As a student I find it hard to find simplistic silver rings and necklaces that are affordable. Matilda’s certainly are and they are gorgeous too! Their necklaces are delicate and sit just below the nape of the neck which is perfect for layering with longer chains. Rings are minimalistic and thin styles are great for stacking. The larger stone rings are equally as stunning and are available in two sizes. Blues and turquoise shades will be perfect for summer with romantic white lace cover ups. It is unlikely you’ll come away from the site with just one item in your basket!
I recently discovered Armenta jewellery on Avenue 32 and was instantly struck by such a majestic and opulent collection. It reminded me instantly of the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2013 show as shown below, with the use of colours and shapes.

“Armenta jewellery is hand-crafted from unique gemstones and precious metals and this
New World collection takes inspiration from the journals of Christopher Columbus” which honours the “noble heritage of Spanish culture and literature in the form of objects of fascination to last for centuries”. Emily Armenta who founded the brand and whose career began while studying a MBA at Rice, describes how “many of the pieces are inspired by famous works of art found throughout Spain, such as poetry, paintings, architecture, and sculptures. Certain pieces are physical representations of images found in works of art, which is to pay homage to the artist’s message of inspiration.”

These are definitely investment pieces considering the hefty price tag! I would say save them for special occasions and wear with your most beautiful outfits but…what’s wrong with a bit of decadence every day?
I thought it would be nice to share just a few things on my wish list for this spring/summer. I’m saving so that I can buy at least one of these items. Which is your favourite?

If you are planning a new summer wardrobe you cannot forget the jewels to go with it. Here are just a few of the pieces I love! From top left clockwise. This is a rock chick cuff, great for the festival look – pair with denim cut offs. Asos (Limited Edition) £35.00. Beaded/studded collars are everywhere at the moment, rather than buy a dozen new shirts use this Topshop pearl collar. £16.50. Though expensive these distressed brass earrings by Free People can be worn day and night, £75.89. This River Island ring will work wonderfully with the Asos Cuff, £8.00. That blue stone is so captivating, I would wear it on its own with no other jewellery for the best effect. Whistles, £35.00. Such a Grecian style necklace by Urban Outfitters – wear it with white! £14.00
Earring are a big thing for Autumn/Winter and personally they are my favourite type of jewellery, so simple yet extremely dramatic when worn in the right way. I thought I would show you some of the beautiful shoulder-skimming earrings that I have seen on the high street recently.
If you have a great pair of statement earrings then probably no other jewellery is required, especially necklaces because a necklace will distract from the earrings or be over powering. Nearly every shop has a big collection of feathered earrings, ranging in different colours and shapes and a beautiful red pair are currently being worn by Caggie Dunlop from Made In Chelsea.
