I have to say I’m not a big jewellery wearer. Sure I did the whole ‘gold hoop earrings that made my ears green’ thing back in the ’00′s, then there was the beaded necklace phase, the Baby G and tattoo-impersonating elasticated chokers; but teen style mishaps aside I really don’t wear too much bling these days. I don’t even have a jewellery box, just a few items that roll across my dressing table and fall on the floor every single morning (perhaps I should invest in one?). Though there are three pieces that I’ve been gravitating towards recently to add a bit of somethin’ somethin’ to my outfit including two Whistles purchases (dur) and a necklace from an online shop that’s well and truly earned its place on my bookmarks list…

Minoux Gold Tubits Necklace – This dainty gold chain with tubing detail has made its way to me all the way from Canada from  Anomie; an online destination created by Chelsea Wears that contains all of the pretty things. I’m not sure I’ve ever worn something so delicate which does mean that I impose a ‘don’t come near me’ rule whenever I’m wearing this, but it is just so darn gawjus. Elegant, simple and oh so chic.

Whistles Graphic Cut Out Cuff - As much as I love Whistles clothing, I’m a huge fan of their accessory range; jewels, bags, the lot and this cuff just called to me. Tough, but modern I picture throwing it into the mix to jazz up an all-black monochrome outfit. I still haven’t got the knack of slipping it on without almost breaking my wrist each time, but I’m working on it.

Whistles Graphic Point Ring – I do like a good ring. I’ve owned a few from Whistles before, but this is my most recent purchase. A double point, thick gold band that I like to wear on my wedding ring finger on my non-wedding ring hand. My only niggle is that my bony fingers fall between sizes; a small creates panic whenever I try and pull it off and a medium just slips off anytime I wave my hands around, so I went for the small and just have a knob of butter on hand at all times.

So there you have it – ice appropriate for all the non-bling loving babes out there. Now it’s time to listen to this.

    I am also not a big jewellery person but I am really loving the necklace. I am not so much into big chunky pieces so the necklace seems perfect for me. Thanks for recommending the website!!

    Lovely pieces Anna :)
    I have noticed your fingers before, so dainty but I can imagine how difficult they would be with rings!

    I’m not a massive jewellery wearer either, but when I see the odd bit that I love, I grab it like a shot and wear it every day! x

    Drooling here, those pieces are so beautiful! I feel the same way, accessories have never been my strong point. I usually like to let a bold lip do the talking ;)

    these are lovely, my favourite is the cuff and the necklace. I really love the geometric still delicate and classic jewellery pieces. especially pairing with simple clothes like a pair of jeans and a plain T-shirt half tucked-in. makes you look effortless but still put together. or at least i feel like I am :)

  • Eleri Roberts

    Haha I like what you did there!! xx

    That’s a gorgeous necklace. Will go with everything :) I always forget to put on jewelry in the morning. I have 2 rings which are always around my fingers but I’m really too lazy to change earrings every morning haha.

    I really like these pieces, very chic.

  • Ellen Findley

    Love ‘em! I wish Minoux did a silver version of that necklace! I’m on the waiting list for the tiny bar necklace.

    • Emy

      Same! I do wish Minous would do a silver version of the necklace. Most of my jewelry are either silver or white gold, so a gold necklace wouldn’t really go with any of them. It’s so delicately gorgeous, though!

    Love that necklace! So chic and simple :) I actually branched out into a bracelet and a ring last week, very exciting! xx

  • Rebecca Simpson

    Simplistic blingage is the one!

    What nail polish are you wearing? So pretty :)

    Personally I rather the Whistles stuff compared to other shops that try and make accessories by the look of these ones you’ve shown. Thanks for the post!

    I have so much jewelry I’ve bought over the years & never worn! I love these though – I really need to make an effort to wear some of the stuff I have :)

    A brilliant post as always :) xxx
