Hello guys! I hope you have had a fantastic start to this new week. I love jewellery - always have, always will (I used to own probably 60% of the items from Claire's back in my youth.) Although my tastes have somewhat changed and I'm into much more minimal jewellery now, I'm still obsessed with the way a little touch of gold or silver can really enhance an outfit. My clothing style nowadays is pretty minimal, too, so I always make sure I have a range of jewellery pieces to choose from to add something a little bit more exciting to my looks. Here are some of my go-to places to buy jewellery, some of which are most definitely hidden gems (no pun intended.) 1. J&Co Jewellery https://www.jcojewellery.com/
J&Co Jewellery started off as a humble Etsy store and grew to become one of the most exciting international jewellery brands. With worldwide shipping and very decent prices, J&Co is great for anyone, anywhere. They have a lot of variety and one thing I like about the website is that you can shop by style, which is pretty cool. 2. Orelia London https://www.orelia.co.uk/
As you might have guessed, this is a British brand with a large social presence. You can get 10% off your first order, student discounts, work with the brand if you are an influencer and read their blog posts! Orelia is very on trend and like J&Co has a lot of variety, so there's definitely something for everyone. 3. OhanaJewels on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/OhanaJewelsShop
A beautiful jewellery brand based in Valencia, Ohana is new on the jewellery scene and is the perfect store for gals and guys with multiple piercings - they have some absolutely gorgeous studs and hoops, which you can purchase individually or as pairs. The prices range from quite cheap to pretty expensive, but the quality is amazing and of course, it's always brilliant to support small businesses. 4. Essential https://essentialjewellers.com/
I have shopped at Essential for ages - I first went into the store in Guildford and was super impressed by the prices. As you would expect, this brand is perfect for your everyday jewellery - hoops, studs and chains. They specialise in silver, and are also a great brand for birthstones, pendants and lockets. 5. Regal Rose https://www.regalrose.co.uk/
For those of you with more grungy style, Regal Rose is the perfect choice. I do love to dabble in edgy accessories from time to time, and Regal Rose is affordable, unique and student friendly. You can also pay with Clearpay, which is great if you've gone on a jewellery binge as I frequently do! Do you have any favourite jewellery brands?
