If like me, you have VERY specific taste when it comes to jewellery, then you’ll appreciate what I mean when I say; Don’t wait for the boy/girl in your life to buy you the piece you want…buy it yourself, plus all these pieces are from female run businesses.
With that in mind, here’s my round up…
Alice Van Cal earrings
These stunningly gorgeous Alice Van Cal earrings made to coincide with the Year of the Rat, the rat symbolises quick thinking, perspicacity and success. According to legend the rat tricked the ox into giving him a ride, as they arrived at the finish line, the rat jumped down, coming in first.
Ametrine Queen cocktail ring
This insanely beautiful Ametrine Queen cocktail ring by Rosie Odette, hard carved in 18 carat rose gold, this stunning purple and caramel Ametrine sits high on her throne. A ring made to inspire you to step up into your majesty, your greatness and your worth. The Ametrine symbolises power, beauty & strength.
Venus Onyx Earrings
For something a little more understated, these from the Danish/British brand Raw Copenhagen are perfect. A jewellery brand whose ethos is all about femininity, fun & elegance, made with recycled silver and ethical gems it is one to watch.
MEN’S LOVE REMINDER LEATHER BRACELET
Something for the boys but also the girls, this leather band with six interchangeable beads, each with a different message, this piece from brand Under the Rose, is both soft and edgy .
TWIST OPEN HOOP EARRINGS
A gold hoop is an everyday classic that never dates, but these Dinny Hall gems are, quite literally a twist on a classic and one that will look equally fabulous with jeans and a sweatshirt or with a little black dress.
BARBERRY ROSE QUARTZ NECKLACE
Last but by no means least, this Unbound Barberry Quartz necklace from duo Charlie and Sarah truly is a labour of love, each piece is carefully hand made using buffalo horn, ceramic beads, gold plated hearts and crystals. It is, quite simply, a work of art.
