Must Have Statement Earrings
Growing up in India, my fascination for jewellery was fuelled from a very young age. Jewellery is every woman's love universally, but in India the obsession for jewels is taken to a whole new level! Jewellery is seen not just as a wonderful piece of adornment, but a financial investment and a piece of heritage, to be loved and passed down from generation to generation.
Having grown up with this perspective, I guess it was hardly a surprise that I quit a long career in finance to start a jewellery and accessories brand!!
I love unique jewellery and I love looking for independent designers that are creating something truly special with keepsake value. So for my first blog, I thought what better topic than to share some of my favourite jewellery pieces.
The one unmissable jewellery trend for 2017 is the statement earring! And here are my top 5 picks for MUST HAVE STATEMENT EARRINGS by a range of fantastic independent designers!
These eye-catching pairs can take any outfit from blah to woah so check them out now!!
My first pick is a piece by Monica Vinader, who created a line of jewellery which sits between fashion and fine jewellery. Loved by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge herself, this brand has some truly wonderful designs.
And I love these trendy fringe earrings with labradorite stones.
