‘Layers of Gold’

Timeless,  sexy…..essential! 

This season’s trend of stacking and layering an abundance of gold jewelry on any area of your body, be it necklaces, bracelets, rings and anklets has definitely got me in a tizzy!  Don’t you just think there is something about gold that looks amazing against sun-kissed skin??

Having always been a huge fan of gold (can you tell?) I am thrilled that there are so many gorgeous designs around from low end to the more luxurious.  I love the idea of flirting with dainty pieces placed alongside the chunkier links that have been particularly apparent on social media of late. I mix all types of bracelets, necklaces and rings from the high street to high end designers to vintage.  Anything goes!!

Your ‘Finishing Touch’ should elevate and enliven your outfit and this is an effortless way of achieving this whether it be with three, four or more pieces.


The QS’s brands to love right now:


I adore this brand who promote their jewelry as the ‘modern heirloom’.  The idea of investing in one of their pieces and passing it down through generations  has me sold!  Their meaningful collections are linked to the elements together with spiritual and mystical symbols which have been selected from a variety of cultures by the husband and wife team.   As I am very much a believer in all things mystical and magical this brand is one of my favourites.



By Chari

This brand has beautiful simples pieces that can be worn all day everyday and provide a backdrop for the more unusual pieces.  Their tag line conveys exactly this…..’Jewelry you will want to live in’.  Check out their Essential Collection!




Unless you have been living under a shell you will have seen this brand all over social media, magazines etc.  The  collection, created in London, was inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy and is perfect for layering.  I have especially fallen for their unusual anklets…..they are not subtle and boring my any means!   Having also released a men’s jewelry line, this season saw them launch women’s espadrilles to die for!!



Brinker & Eliza

Brinker & Eliza

I’m sure all of you know exactly what I mean when you scroll though social media and all of a sudden one image or item just grabs your attention?  And your response is…..Ooooh!!!!! This is what happened when I saw one of Brinker & Eliza’s necklaces on social media,  I just thought ‘I have to have it’!!  You will no doubt fall, as I did, for the larger than life gold necklaces designed by the mother and daughter duo in Connecticut.    I fell for ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’ necklace and have placed this on my birthday list!  This brand also engages with the current shell trend that seems to have taken over so if you are a fan, check them out!



Aurelie Bidermann

This French designer brings you unusual pieces in gold or with a touch of colour in the form of turquoise, coral, emerald…..all stunning colours that will complement your gold ‘finishing touches’.  I know I’m meant to be talking about gold jewellery but the ‘Merco’ necklace, a lacquered shell pendant, is just stunning yet simple!




Tamara Comolli

Tamara’s brand promise is ‘casual luxury’ and she is famous for her colour stories and acorn shapes.  Her designs will add a hint of colour to your stack and can be worn in various ways.  The stacking rings are soooo beautiful and the mini Mikado charm bracelet Candy is most definitely ‘arm candy’ (pun intended!).



In addition to the above brands you should also check out the delicate pieces from Chopard, Piaget’s signature cuffs, Van Cleef & Arpels’ iconic floral embellished collection, Cartier’s signature bracelet and Bvlgari iconic rings and the queen of stacking, Monica Vinader!

Well,  that’s my Birthday list complete……for the jewelry anyway!!
