When it comes to accessories, I could go on all day about how much I believe in investing in quality items. When I was a student, I used to load up on inexpensive jewellery items from high-street chain stores and find they would discolour and break very quickly, particularly when you’re wearing them on a daily basis. Having to repurchase rings and necklaces for 20 dollars a pop eventually adds up and usually left me wishing I’d spent more on a quality piece that I could use for years to come. This month I was fortunate enough to collaborate with Emma & Roe, the ultra feminine sub-brand of the acclaimed Michael Hill Jewelers who specialize in beautifully cut diamonds.
Selecting a few items across their range was a hard task, with so many pieces I was left lusting over. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’d know my jewellery item of choice is rings. I feel naked without my knuckles appropriately dusted, as rings can really glam up a look without too much effort or fuss. Picking a silver/black combination of ‘stacker rings’ was easy, as I can style them with anything. I don’t usually go for much glitz when it comes to accessorizing, however, the allure of cubic zirconia is hard to ignore.
Adding some classic crystal stud earrings and a Hamsa Hand charm necklace to my artillery, I was able to style the pieces in an everyday, casual manner. After all let’s been honest- how often do we need to don a floor-length ball gown anyway?
Styling with a floaty midi length shirtdress by Australian brand Mesop, my overall look was true to my love of monochromatic, oversized attire. Proving you don’t need a ritzy event to rock quality (and sparkly) pieces of jewellery. Each day is a chance to have fun with your style and reflect who you are through what you wear, so have fun and don’t overthink it!
