At a recent Rock My Limited Team meeting the ladies were rocking some of their favourite costume jewels. Whether you’re more of a statement necklace kind of girl or prefer a delicate and dainty chain we hope you’ll like some of our favourite pieces.
I’m ALL about a statement necklace. I just don’t suit dainty, and I love their brilliant ability to transform an otherwise plain outfit. Even on the days when I just want to throw on a black tee I know I can still appear to have pulled it together by adding one of my bold accessories. I’ve already curated a rather large collection, but when they go with everything (chambray shirt, breton tee, collared blouse… no limits!) it would have been rude not to add this Oliver Bonas beauty, wouldn’t it?
I wouldn’t usually wear these two pieces together – if I’ve got a statement necklace on then I usually leave my wrists and fingers jewellery-free. However this Cos bracelet was too cute not to wear.
I love colourful necklaces (and scarves, and handbags!) because they are an easy way of bringing a bit of interest to an outfit. They can transform a plain grey tee or Breton top in an instant. My necklace is an old one from Accessorize but you can find similar at John Lewis. The bracelet is an old favourite too but you can buy similar at Cos.
I tend to favour more classic, understated jewellery mainly as I don’t wear it much any more due to the inevitable breakages caused by two small children. My necklace of choice is my simple single pearl that Edd bought me years ago. I adore it’s simplicity and it just goes with everything. The matching pearl studs are also a staple for me and until I get some giant diamonds these are just perfect 🙂 . These ones were from our local jewellers but you can find similar styles here and here. I very rarely wear bracelets any more as I find they just get in my way but these gold bangles were my granny’s and have sentimental value. I just love the layered look of bangles and these delicate ones from Asos would be great. When I want to jazz up an outfit a bit more my go to is my double layer long pendant from Whistles. I adore it and have worn it so much already.
I discovered the beautiful jewellery by Astrid & Miyu via Rock My Wedding, we featured their founder Connie’s engagement shoot and her gorgeous wedding is coming soon. I’m not a big jewellery wearer, so their dainty pieces really suit my style and I love that most of their collections come in rose gold too. I’m wearing one of their Tuxedo chain ring and the geometric block necklace. Their jewellery is somehow modern, stylish and bohemian all at the same time and is very reasonably priced, they even offer a reward scheme for customers. It’s British designed and made too so all in all they are a brand I love and I’d recommend their jewellery to everyone.
I wore a cheap Topshop necklace to death on our honeymoon and it quickly tarnished. I absolutely loved the sweet and delicate bow and was gutted I had to bin it. For my birthday that year my very thoughtful husband had the same jeweller who crafted my engagement ring make a 9ct gold replica complete with a black diamond. I absolutely adore it and wear it most of the time. I’ve never plucked up the courage to ask him how much it cost but he has mentioned it ‘was a lot less than you’d think’. I’ll leave it at that.
What are you favourite pieces to wear every day? Do you go delicate or daring? Ooh and if you like Lottie and Fern’s threads you can find all the details in our recent fashion post.
