Working in the industry for a few years I've learnt a couple of secrets to tracking down unique pieces and supporting independent retailers. These five independent particular  have been selected due to their customer service and selection available. Furthermore they are active on social media, producing their own bespoke services and collaborating with independent brands.

The Individual British Jewellery Boutique The Individual British Jewellery Boutique

If you want to be wearing unique jewellery from designers that are on the rise this is the store for you. The Individual tries to stock designers that you will not find in other places. They stock designers including Rosie May JewelleryElkin London and Laura Gravestock. We love that they feature some really unique fashion forward pieces so you wont be seen wearing the same items as others and people will be forever asking "Where did you get that?"

Benna.co.uk is run by Benna Harry a jewellery designer and former fashion stylist. Benna chooses all the items that are featured on benna.co.uk. Benna stocks brands such as Assya, Katie- Mullally, Shourouk, and her own range By Benna. Notable features of the website are Benna's advise on styling and gifts in here editors choice.

|Argent of London is a favourite amongst celebrities and the fashionable in the know. Their unique selling point is every day luxury jewellery instead of waiting for that special occasion. Every piece is carefully selected by founder Gail Goodrich. We particularly love their pearl peas in a pod piece and their affordable diamonds; especially this £60.00 star diamond pendant. 

Wolf & Badger prides itself on being a go to destination for designer brands and unique jewellery. They stock over 130+ independent luxury brands in jewellery, clothing and home wear. Our favourite jewellery brands are I love a Lassie, Glenda Lopez and Caroline Creba. Shopping with Wolf and Badger will mean supporting independent designers and fantastic artists.  

Cotton and Gems was started by Clare Cotton who's motto is that "Jewellery should reflect your spirit and personality". Cotton and Gems stocks brands including Ottoman Hands, Daisy Knights and V Jewellery.  My favourite thing about Cotton and Gems is their instagram account. Here you will see fantastic shots of the jewellery that is available, inspirational quotes and photos of Clare's very cute dogs Labrador Barney and Hungarian Vizsla Watson
