You may all have noticed my growing love for jewellery over the past year. My collection is growing very nicely and I have so many pieces I am wearing on a daily rotation. So I am excited to be working with Links of London to share a collection that is so different to anything they have done previously, and something that is fitting perfectly in with my growing collection. So I am sharing three looks with you here today, all styling up two pieces from the new Links of London Ovals collection along with some other pieces from their core collection.
The collection is an exciting new direction for Links of London, and I love how it encourages me to mix metals when styling which is something I do a lot with my jewellery. The dark black rhodium with the gold vermeil creates such a contract it allows each piece to stand out perfectly. There is something strong about the pieces, while they are still feminine - like the size of the oval on the necklace against the lightness of the chain, it’s all about the subtle contrast which makes the collection so interesting.
Let’s start with the necklace. This is from the Ovals collection, and while I am styling it on it’s own here, it will look amazing layered up with other gold chains, with this gorgeous oval detail sitting dead centre. I love the white topaz detail which gives it a bit of sparkle without it being OTT at all. And the lightness in tone that brings to it allows it to really stand out against a black t-shirt, or subtly sparkle against a lighter toned look or directly on yous skin. It has a few different length options with the fastening at the back which I always love in a necklace so you can tailor the length of it for each outfit and neckline. Now to the bracelet, also from the Ovals collection, this time in black rhodium and white topaz. I love how the dark colour makes this feel more androgynous, and would make it work well sat alongside a chunky mens watch like I would usually wear.
Gold hoops have definitely been an obsession over mine over the past few months. Being such a lover of minimal dressing, introducing things like gold hoops into my favourite basic looks really elevated things for me. I love how you can mix and match with ones of different sizes, and on the most lazy of jeans and t-shirt days it looks amazing with your hair tired up, and brings just the right amount of effort to an effortless look. These ones have a bubble detail to them (inspired by champagne bubbles) which gives them a little more oomph then a normal gold hoop. They are the perfect size too, not so big that you nearly rip them out every time you take out your headphones (I have learnt that one the hard way), but not too small that they go unnoticed.
Finally, the gorgeous signet ring, I love this piece so much! I love the way signet rings reflect the light on the flat surface, they can be really eye catching just because of that. The simplicity of this one is perfect, with the cut out detailing down the sides which breaks up the texture of that flat top surface. Whatever style of rings you normally/already wear, a signet ring is always going to work so well with it all. A contrast against dainty rings, or a compliment to other chunky jewellery. They have a certain androgyny to them which of course I am sucker for too!
