Hello, hidden gems.
We like to think an outfit isn't complete without jewellery, and below you'll find our guide to the new brands to know, timeless pieces that will add sparkle to any outfit and jewellery trends that we love.
When it comes to jewellery, I’ve always had a penchant for pieces that feel as special as they look. While I’m partial to colourful and statement for a unique find, I also love discovering new (or just new-to-me) brands. And the ones I love most all have one thing in common: They’re all British. I’ve found that some of the most interesting and contemporary jewellery pieces are created right here in the UK by some of the most talented designers.
And the best part - All these designers are ethical and their designs are sustainably made.
These affordable and chic jewellery brands deliver on trend and stylish accessories, whatever your aesthetic. Whether you are a lover of dainty jewels and delicate studs, or chunky statement pieces, these brands offer plenty of choice.
There have never been more labels offering fun and fashionable jewellery at affordable prices. Most can enhance your everyday look are all about chunky statement styles.
I absolutely love that they are made by small independent designers like us and embrace our love for colour alike.
Joyful Jewellery for colour lovers.

With that being cleared, let's go....
HAATHI DROP EARRINGS
The Haathi is also a regular feature in traditional Mughal and Rajasthani art. Colours for these artworks were traditionally extracted from natural materials like plants and shells, and gold and silver were regularly used too.
Inspired by this style of art, these statement earrings are made of laser-cut ivory marble & hot pink acrylic, with engraved and gold hand-painted details on the jhul (saddle cloth) and seeri (headdress).

LOVE clashing colours? These best selling Statement Jewel Earrings have been given a passionate pink and red makeover.
The fan and frill, droplet shape components in these Statement earrings swing below teardrop shape studs. This construction means the earrings have plenty of movement, optimising the light reflecting off those teardrop shaped gold jewels.

Dance Like EVERYONE is Watching
Mix and Match earrings
