Plus anyone can pull off these dainty gold and silver earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. It’s time to don minimalist jewellery for maximum style.
If you’re big on arm candy, you’ll love Monica Vinader. These guys are home to the most delicate bracelets; the range includes everything from thin cuffs to thin gemstone chains. But more than just wrist accessories, Monica Vinader also features a stunning variety of earrings, as well as necklaces and rings for layering and stacking.

Stand out from the masses with gorgeous jewellery from Curious Creatures. These tiny pieces go a mighty long way to giving your look a boost. Playing with the raw nature of semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls and geometric shapes, Curious Creatures thinks out of the box to come up with new ways to don your everyday jewellery. The Faye Inverted Ear Huggers where you can wear them in two ways and the Diana Ear Threader, pictured above – choose to wear it long or thread through your second ear hole – are great examples.
