Jewels for me need to be fuss-free and pretty. I like the simplicity of a few key items in my collection that can mix and match with any outfit, day or night. I tend to wear earrings for weeks on end and I love to wear a necklace, but don’t like having to remove it to sleep so to fit my perfect criteria, it must be a piece that’s fine enough to wear to bed.
If I had my way I’d be welcoming a new piece from the recently opened Tiffany & Co store for my 40th birthday next month, but alas, our huge renovation means that’s a pipe dream.
But that shouldn’t stop a girl from dreaming right!?
My favourite five necklaces are shown here – each is simple, classic, feminine and ultimately delicate in design. Pure golds – both white & rose are my metal of choice, and I adore gemstones ranging from classic diamonds to pretty feminine gems in aquamarine, sapphire or topaz.
Delicate and timeless pieces like these can work with jeans and a white tee shirt, or set off a wedding-ready outfit which is what I love about this style most. A classic and timeless piece of jewellery is an investment that will last forever.
This is reminiscent of the magnificent Heart of the Ocean necklace (Le Cœur de la Mer) from the Titanic (albeit a quarter or less of the size). You can find this gorgeous Walker & Hall version here
How gorgeous is this little thing!? I eat an apple a day pretty much, so this Apple Core Pendant would be a fitting little bauble for me. It comes in a variety of finishes, including red gold, which is something I’d never heard of before. Meadowlark are making their mark I see.
This simple stirling silver Manifest Pendant Charm Loved from Gala Darling is an easy to wear pendant that goes with everything.
This sweet little Stargazers Starlet Pendant is one that I wear around 80% of the year. It’s such a delicate piece that it can be teamed with other necklaces and the contrast of white and yellow gold is subtle but perfect to me. Boh Runga has created some stunning pieces in her Mint Republic Collections over the years and this is one of my favourites.
This one might just be my favourite. Gaaaaah talk about gorgeous! Find this on the Tiffany’s site here.
Have you found one here you love? Perhaps you could drop some subtle hints for Christmas. What girl doesn’t love getting jewels?
