Jewel of the Week: Missoma X Lucy Williams Roman Arc Coin Necklace

Missoma - Missoam x Lucy Willaims Roman Arc Pendant - £139.00     This week I'm featuring the best selling necklace from the Missoma x Lucy Williams collection from Missoma Jewellery. This is one of the most successful collaborations I've seen in the jewellery industry with thousands of these pendants being sold. The coins echo the rich, symbolic execution of Roman jewellery, while the fresh interpretation brings amulet status symbols into the 21st century for the modern woman.     I love the triple-lined bale at the top and the way that the arc is actually separated from the coin. Part of me wants the pendant to spin, but it definitely doesn't. The only thing that I would point out about this necklace is that it is not vermeil but 3 microns on brass instead of the regular sterling silver.     The collection was created after Lucy returned from a trip to Rome, Inspired by the city’s antiquities and treasured artefacts, Lucy and Marisa joined forces for the second time to create a collection depicting Roman iconography. The hero pieces of the collection are the pendant necklaces inspired by ancient coins and talismans with cultural motifs from ancient Rome.

Jewel of the Week: July Child Snacks Ring

 This week I'm featuring this fabulous ring from cool girl jewellery store July Child. I don't even know where to begin with how much I love this ring. The font is cool AF, and I firmly agree with the Snacks slogan. I adore tongue in cheek jewellery as it's so lovely having something so glam and yet so of the moment or even slightly silly. Although July Child is a jewellery store their own collection of these script rings are to die for and include other lovely phrases such as "Cheese", "Disco". "Bowie" and "Heartbreaker". They are also surprisingly unisex as the font is very classic and the ring is quite chunky. I love the idea of getting the Cheese and Wine rings and stacking them together. At £45.00 this is a fantastic buy and would make an excellent payday treat or a lovely gift to someone special who is a champion snacker.


"King and Queen of snacking? Whether you love biscuits, chocolates, maybe even both of them together (don't knock it til you've tried it) this ring symbolises the small but mighty SNACK."

Would you wear an adjustable ring?


Adjustable rings instantly take me back to my teenage years when you bought split open rings that you could squeeze to fit on your finger. The perfect size and immediately a ring that was bent out of shape? Honestly, if you're paying for something demi-fine, I don't really want it to move unless that's a design feature, not a lazy way to sell fewer sizes. However, as my jewellery knowledge grew and I stopped shopping for super cheap thrills, I learned about adjustable rings that used chains. At first, I thought these were really clever and innovative, but after speaking to a product developer, she mentioned that they slipped around a lot and easily loosened. I tried an adjustable chain ring for myself, and she was right.

Jewel of the Week: Tatty Devine

Jewel of the Week: Tatty Devine European Necklace

My jewel of the week this time is the gorgeous European necklace from Tatty Devine. As we get ever closer to the deadline for a Brexit deal, I find myself reading the news each week with more and more depressing news. However, this beautiful blue acrylic necklace cheered me up straight away. I love that it's a cheeky £25.00 and it's part of their original name and statement necklace designs. It did make me wonder if someone designed this through the make your own name necklace and whether anyone has commissioned a Brexit necklace.

Hats off to you Tatty Devine for keeping us smiling in challenging times.

Your Guide to Black Friday 2018

Here is your one stop shop for all the Black Friday deals on this week. I will update this page every day with new offers and codes that I get. I've seen a massive change this year with companies giving flat discounts across the entire store instead of a selection of products which means it's the perfect time to snap up something you've had your eye on or perhaps get some early Christmas shopping out of the way. I'm also impressed that out of all the discount codes I've seen this week each brand seems to have come up with a different code. From Monica Vinader, Ruffier, Astley Clarke to Orelia London, and Cleopatra's Bling you'll be sure to find a piece that you love. If you're interested to see which jewellery I'm buying this Black Friday check out my shopping cart here.

In my Black Friday basket


Sometimes I'm not a very savvy shopper, and I completely forget about events like Black Friday for jewellery or a brand that I've had my eye on and need to kick myself to check if it's in the sale. The problem is that at this time of year I'm usually trying to save for the holidays and thinking about what everyone else wants. However this year I thought I would share my ultimate shopping cart with you if I had some more cash at the moment. Just as you're reading through there is one item that I did buy this year which is on the list. I wonder if you'll guess which piece it is and if you could pick one thing would you choose the same as me?

Designers you should know about: Alison Lou

Designers you should know about: Alison Lou

I love it when you can look at a piece of jewellery and know who designed it without having to see a label or a box. It's the sign of real signature style and craftsmanship. Alison Lou is one of those designers. Her pieces are easily identifiable with fun and playful designs. The creative genius behind Alison Lou is Alison Chemla who was inspired by the deceptive simplicity of modern communication and beyond. Her first collection Emoticore is a cheeky and thoughtful commentary on the expression of feelings from the banal to the intimate through the language of emoticons and emojis.



More recent collection themes include Casino to Secret Garden, with the jewellery always remaining playful in its approach. Alison Lou’s most recent collection, Mama Mia, was dreamed up after a summer trip to Italy. The collection consists of designs inspired by everyone's favourite pasta - farfalle, penne, and spaghetti to name a few.

Alison Lou’s most recent collection, Mama Mia, was dreamed up after a summer trip to Italy. The collection consists of designs inspired by everyone's favourite pasta - farfalle, penne, and spaghetti to name a few.

This spring of, Alison launched LOUCITE, a diffusion collection of hoop earrings made of lucite and hand-painted enamel in a wide variety of colours and sizes. These gorgeous colourful pieces quickly established a strong following, especially amongst the celebrity set. It has been seen on Emily Ratajkowski, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Gigi Hadid, Tracee Ellis Ross, Celine Dion, and many more.


At the moment I'm coveting her enamel signet rings which have a real pop art statement with colour and lines. I think mixing the calligraphy script with the bright enamel makes for an unusual combination that you have to see to believe. I often struggle with O as an initial and in a more flouncy font know that it would look smashing compared to a plain round O. These signet rings are made in 14k gold in New York. My other recent favourite piece is this simple croissant stud. What can I say girl loves carb free croissant and sparkling emeralds.
