I am always on the hunt for affordable jewellery brands, they really are hard to find. And I prefer to go gold-plated. Now Spring is (finally) coming (am I speaking too soon?) I am thinking more about mixing up my usual Astley Clarke and Laura Lee pieces – with the need to have fun with jewellery, but I don’t want to spend a fortune.
I have only recently discovered Estella Bartlett, but her fun designs are really what I needed in my wardrobe. And the quirky eye necklace is fine enough to look far more expensive (who needs to know those aren’t real sapphires?).
Z for Accessorize is now a few seasons on, and I’m still loving the collections in store. It’s definitely my go-to for affordable pieces with a bit of a wow factor. I’d also recommend Orelia (who also have a concession in Topshop Oxford Circus) for great ear jackets, fine chains and they make lovely gifts.
