My mum changes her earrings everyday which fascinates me because I basically always end up wearing the same things. But, I have been so into jewellery recently, that I do change my earrings from time to time, and I play with necklaces as well. Layering is a big trend, and even though I was not sure about it at first, I now find myself really attracted to this style. Ha, trends ! I feel like, because I wear clothes that are somehow classic and my style is not too experimental, adding necklaces or earrings (I tend to never wear both at the same time, call me prude) can really change an outfit.
I’ve always been into gold and since I was 15, I decided that gold would suit me best, and add some warmth to my pale complexion and dark features. It was not that fashionable at the time so finding key pieces in gold was a struggle. I have to admit as well, that Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City really inspired me with her bold gold necklaces and hoops. To me, it was a statement, a way to accessorize that would make me look cool.
Missoma is going to be heavily featured here, simply because I love the style of jewellery they make. I got these three necklaces as gifts for my birthday and Christmas, and was lucky enough to have had a Black Friday code at the time ! I was super inspired by Lizzy Hadfield, who has such a chic, innovative style and layers gold necklaces like a queen. These necklaces remind me of my family, and my partner, which is quite powerful because it can really make you feel good about yourself to have feelings and memories attached to jewels.
The most special one probably is the Gold small initial necklace which has my partner’s initial and mine on the other side and it makes me feel very sentimental. Now, the blogger extraordinaire Lucy Williams worked with Missoma on two gorgeous collections and of course I fell in love with the Mini fang necklace, I mean, who hasn’t ? Great on its own or layered, subtle yet statement : perfect !
Last but not least, I preordered the Double molten necklace on plain chain back in december, and finally got my hands on it a few weeks ago. It’s much bigger and visible which I like a lot, and I particularly adore the two entwined circles. Again, Lizzy Hadfield wears a very similar one, and I actually discovered recently that hers is not from Missoma, but mine is, and I think it’s beautiful.
I have three holes on my left ear, and two on the right one. I don’t wear earrings too often, but I always have two little hoops in the two holes of my left ear. One is Maria Tash, a complete crazy purchase I made in Liberty London, a gift to myself, so freaking expensive, still processing it…. It’s a tiny clicker ring with a spiky opal, which is gorgeous, and it’s gold. I never take it off, I sleep in it, I take showers with it, it’s the only jewel that I keep at all times. The hole above that, is still healing. So at the moment I have a little hoop from my mum, I think it’s gold-plated, and I never really take it off either.
When I do wear earrings, I either choose these dainty Missoma mini dagger charm hoops, or the silver-ish hoops (actually a pale gold) made by Justine Clenquet, a french jewellery designer I love the style of. These hoops are a medium size with a dangly cross, unfortunately not available anymore, but check her website, her creations are beautiful.
So there you have it, these items inspire my style and mean a lot to me. Also, because my style is quite minimal, I feel quite daring with my layered necklace… To each their own version of Rock’n’roll lifestyle am I right ?
Are you into jewellery ? Do you have sentimental pieces you can’t imagine yourself without ?
