Don't you love the allure of a little gold ring? I prefer my jewellery on the smaller side and, especially towards the end of summer, a hint of gold is perfect for accentuating a sun-kissed glow.

How to wear them: simple gold bands are really popular right now and its little sister, the midi ring, is everywhere! I think it's really modern to mix your metals - rose gold, yellow and silver can all be best friends - and I'm also a big believer that you don't just save your best for best: it may seem scary to wear your grandma's heirloom ring, but as long as it's not the mother of all diamonds that will attract unwanted attention, it's nice to give your treasures a bit of fresh air. I'm personally in the camp that gold rings and diamonds are perfectly pared back with a white t-shirt and weekend denim.

Where to get them: everywhere! My rings come from high and low and I'll happily wear my £1 Accessorize sale bargain next to my more expensive, handcrafted pieces. I'm obsessed with catbird nyc's affordable designs (time for a trip to New York?), but my favourite pieces that you can get in England come from Alex Monroe and Bee Goddess. On the high street, Cos and & Other Stories are fab for unusual and minimal pieces. For sweet stacking rings, Accessorize is a firm favourite - their sales are epic and they've also just launched Z for Accessorize, an affordable collection of gold plated pieces that will help pad out your collection.

How do you like to wear your jewellery? Big and bold or firmly understated?


  1. I really love this look, simple & elegant!

  2. catbird is great! i love stacking lots of little delicate ones. admittedly i wear silver rings more - need to branch into the gold a little bit.
