Current favourites: silver jewellery

Since reaching the slightly more mature age of 30, I’ve tried to act a little bit more like a grown up and get myself some more subtle jewellery. I’ve always been one for statement necklaces and oversized perpex rings, and while I’m not entering them into retirement just yet, I’ve found myself developing a rather large collection of silver jewellery.

I love silver jewellery – partly because it’s usually affordable enough that I can buy it myself if I want to and also because jewellery designers seem to put lots of effort into making pretty shapes and textured effects with it. These are some of favourite pieces that I often wear day in, day out, either alone or all together.

The silver ball bracelet was a 30th birthday present from the lovely Grace from All That Slap and I love wearing it stacked up with the others shown here. It’s very simple, but classic at the same time and also fits my skinny wrist perfectly! For a splash of colour, I like to add my Link of London hot pink friendship bracelet*. I have a bit of a thing for hot pink accessories, and this is no exception. As someone whose wardrobe is mostly monochrome, it’s nice to break it up with a splash of colour and this allows me to do that easily, without entering scary territory. The heart bracelet was a gift from Argento as part of a campaign I worked with them on a while back, and while I’m not keen on it alone (for some reason it makes my wrist look child-sized), stacked up in this combination I love it!

If I had to only ever wear one type of jewellery again, it would definitely be rings. My fingers feel pretty naked without any on and I usually end up with at least two or three on my fingers at once. The sculpted flower ring was an impulse purchase in an Oliver Bonas sale earlier this year. It’s so pretty, and also a sign that I should never walk into Oliver Bonas unaccompanied as I always walk out with something. Oops. My last pick is another 30th birthday present, this time from my boyfriend. It’s a sold silver band set with a beautiful stone that naturally shifts colour in the light. He chose it himself, so extra brownie points there, and I love the multi-tonal effect of the stone (which I have totally forgotten the name of *slaps hand*).

What are your favourite pieces of jewellery? Do they hold a sentimental value for you?

  1. I'm the same as you - I'm nearly 30 and have had a rethink to the style of jewellery I've been wearing recently. I really love the Links of London bracelet for a pop of colour though, it's cute!
