It is surprisingly hard to find tasteful jewellery that feels meaningful and individual, that doesn’t also cost a total fucking bomb. You might point to Alex Monroe, and that’s all very well but I just feel like the designs are kind of … everywhere. If I see one more bumblebee necklace I’m going to, like, *mimes shooting self in head*.
One option is Phoebe Coleman, who produces a range of really beautiful, tasteful and delicate jewellery, which is reassuringly expensive (unlike, say, Orelia) but also affordable for a special occasion.
Here are some of my favourites:
I was looking at this site the other, I really liked the look of the stacking rings with stones. Is it more towards the costume end, quality wise, though? I’ve got a special anniversary coming up and want something a bit different from the traditional ‘eternity ring’ but still timeless.
My god I LOVE that warrior necklace! I want it right now! My husband just bought me that very bumblebee necklace you have referd to, for my birthday, which is today. His choice and it was a surprise. Sigh.
All I’m saying is I love that warrior one more!!
Oh no oh god!!!!! Sorry I’m such an arsehole. They are lovely those bumblebee necklaces, I’m just being a bitch x
I have a few things from Phoebe Coleman and love them all. They’re customer service is pretty bad though which is a shame as it has put me off buying anything else from there.
Oh no that’s awful 🙁
you’re not. I didn’t love it before I read your words!! i couldn’t be honest with him because BLESS HIM he loves it and was SO proud of himself! Even bigger sigh. I should love it, I should but it’s soooooo errrr wasp like and my friends sister has one and she is the complete opposite of me that it feels like if I have one I’m being like her. anyway just wish it was the bow and arrow. too cool.
I wonder whether you would like Rust? The jeweller is based in the aisle of Wight and her stuff is very tasteful and delicate.
nice. I like all her arrow stuff
thought you might like it!
