Iâ€™m not sure if is the disgustingly dreary British weather and the yearning for a year round tan or all of the day dreaming about distant lands and warm sand that has spurred on a new obsession; either way I have been like a magpie to all things gold! With London Fashion Week currently rolling out displaying the new collections of established labels I have been digging a little deeper familiarising myself with some new generation talent that is a little less well known. I have not been disappointed.
As I sat typing at my desk I realised my rather sausage like fingers look much more appealing when dressed up a little. I was missing a cluster of stylish stacked rings, a piece of delicate fine jewellery or a contemporary costume design. So combining my new love for all things gold I have researched into finding the perfect highly wearable ring and filling the void in my jewellery box.
My initial search is for selection of stacked rings. Now I am not personally a huge fan of embellishment, I appreciate simplicity, strong yet elegant designs and statements ring. My ideal stacker ring would be individual to my taste, only a flash of colour allowing me to co-ordinate with all outfits and occasions.
This search has led me to Natasha Collis. Natashaâ€™s signature is to work with hand melted, irregular gold nuggets which enrich a beautiful gem stones. The innovative designer claims she finds inspiration from the stunning sunlight of the Balearic’s as it dances and sparkles on the shores of the Mediterranean. A woman after my own heart!
The next stop is a delicate intricate piece of fine jewelry. I absolutely love the idea behind these delectable designs created by Solange Azagury-Partridge targeting the diamond shy ring wearer as an alternative to the traditional engagement ring. This says Marry me…
If all fails you can always replace it with this oneâ€¦
My final item of lust is a customised piece of costumer Jewelry from Annina Vogel. Ingenious Annina re-works vintage item into contemporary pieces that are more relevant in todayâ€™s market. For something a little more classic, quirky and seriously collectible this is your girl!
Get imaginative with your jewelry make a statement and have fun. Remember imitation is the highest form of flattery, if you can’t get your hands on these golden tickets I’m sure there will be similar versions in your local stores. Now get decorating…
