Just like fashion I find my taste in jewellery changes with time.
If you had asked me a few years ago I would’ve said I was definitely a statement jewellery kinda girl. Chunky necklaces and jeweled rings? I was all for it, but in the last few years I’ve slowly started to refine my collection of jewellery and found myself wearing more simple, dainty pieces. Whether it’s age, taste or just discovering what suits me, I feel a lot more confident in my own style now and love reflecting my personality in the pieces I wear. So here’s some of my favourite dainty jewellery pieces I have been wearing recently…
Pieces should reflect your personality as well as mean something to you.
I think of jewellery as being a lot more personal than fashion, less throw away and more meaningful. This is why I love this silver zodiac necklace from Lola Rose. I am fascinated with star signs and all things astronomical so this is the perfect gift for me. The pendant is just the right length to wear with a cosy roll neck jumper and the small Libra indentation makes it personal and unique. I love how all the Lola Rose pieces come packed in this gorgeous blush sleeve too. I am often sold on a piece of jewellery after seeing how well presented it is, especially if I am buying it as a present for a friend.
I often pair this necklace with another favourite in my jewellery box, my chakra ring from Daisy, London. My mum bought me this ring for my birthday a few years back to match the chakra bracelet I wear every day. She chose the ‘throat chakra’ which symbolises truthful expression, loyalty and organisation to reflect my creative personality. Like the zodiac necklace, this ring has a personal meaning to me and I love that it helps express a little part my style. I think having meaning makes me enjoy wearing the pieces even more.
I like to mix my jewellery up between gold and silver depending on my outfit or what other pieces I am wearing that day. I often go for simple gold pendants if I am wearing gold hoops or co-ordinate with some stacker rings. The thing I love most about dainty jewellery is you can wear a lot without over doing it. Stacking rings or layering up pendants means I can easily switch up my style day to day to suit my outfit and mood.
