When it comes to jewellery – I’m pretty picky about what I wear. Years ago, I used to have boxes of trinkets, bangles and earrings, and I positively tinkled as I walked around. As I’ve gotten older though, I’ve really curated my collection. I’ve got a few pairs of stud earrings which I can pop in and forget about, I’ve got a nice watch I can wear during the day and in the evening, and a handful of delicate gold necklaces and bracelets which I can wear on their own or stacked and that’s about it. Although I like the curated nature of my collection, it can get a little same-y, so I’ve been looking for some effortless feeling pieces I can incorporate to give my outfits a little update.
I’m not a fan of big, brash jewellery, so I couldn’t have been happier than when Edinburgh-based jewellery star Laura Bond got in touch asking if I’d like to try a pair of her earrings. I had been positively stalking her instagram page (it’s gorgeous and you can find it here) so couldn’t wait to try a pair of her delicate hoops!
These are her gold-plated channel set crystal huggies, which retail for £25 each – the joy of Laura Bond Jewellery is that you can really curate your ears – with your choice of earrings. Sold separately, you can mix and match to your heart’s content, and you can choose from a variety of metals, finishes and even sizes, so you’re guaranteed to find a whole host of earrings you’re going to fall in love with!
I’ve been absolutely loving this hoops to add a subtle touch of glamour to my everyday looks. The cubic zirconia crystals absolutely dazzle in the light, and the gold-plating means they match with all my existing jewellery. These hoops are also incredibly comfortable to wear – my ears can get itchy and uncomfortable when I wear earrings, but I completely forget these are even in. They’re lightweight too – and don’t get caught up in my hair, and I can wear them all day long. Even better – when you buy from Laura Bond Jewellery, you’re supporting a fabulous independently-owned business!
Laura Bond Channel Set Crystal Huggies in 14k Gold Plater Sterling Silver are priced at £25 each, and are available here.
