We’re fast approaching winter now, and although 90% of the time you will find most of my outfit hidden beneath a coat and hundred’s of layers of clothing, the one thing you’ll always find visible is my jewellery. I wear earrings every single day, and usually at least one necklace. Thanks to my ‘neutral’ skin tone, I can wear both gold and silver, which means in terms of jewellery the possibilities are practically endless.
A couple of years ago I received a pair of earrings by JewelleryBox in a subscription box I used to get, so I already knew they were fabulous before I even took a second glance on their website. They specialise in super affordable 9ct Gold and Sterling Silver jewellery. This is fabulous when you’re a student (like me),when you’re buying Christmas presents, or even if you want to treat yourself on a budget. I can’t wear stainless steel or titanium earrings as I get a reaction, and I tend to opt for more quality over quantity with my necklaces’ these days too. An affordable price AND fabulous quality means you can’t really go wrong.
I don’t often wear hoops, but as I decided i’d mix things up a bit I opted for these 9ct Yellow Gold Hoop Earrings with Pearl. The pearl detail is really gorgeous and adds a little bit more glam to a plain hoop. They’re still subtle which I love, and I think they make the perfect combination paired with the Gold Dipped Small 2mm Sterling Silver Ball Stud Earrings.
As I tend to stick to keeping my gold and silver together, I also paired them with this stunning Gold Dipped Sterling Silver Pentagon Pendant on Chain 16-22 inches. I really like the unusual shape and the adjustable chain length is perfect. The possibility of layering it is always tempting, but I think it looks fab worn alone.
As I wanted to showcase both gold and silver, I also chose a couple of similar but equally different earrings. The Sterling Silver Open 20mm Hoop Stud Earrings and the Frosted Sterling Silver Ball Stud Earrings 4mm. I’ve worn ball-style earrings before, but I think the frosted texture makes them a little different, especially when paired against the smooth silver of the hoop.
I also chose two silver necklaces, the unusual Sterling Silver Wishbone Pendant, which I think is fab and is also considered to be quite lucky. I think when I have my MA exam this one will definitely be worn! Finally the Fine Lightweight Sterling Silver Trace Chain with Cone Pendant Necklace is a little bit different for me. I think they work really nicely together, at the same time there are also endless possibilities. The spike quality could be placed nicely against something more delicate, whilst also worn alone could create a bit of statement.
I’ve really enjoyed mixing up my jewellery, and I already know I’m going to get so much wear out of these pieces! You can find all of these and so many others on JewelleryBox’s website.
