It’s so important to choose jewellery that you feel comfortable in and that reflects your personal style, but there are a handful of enduring pieces that every modern woman should include in her collection. Here are a few of my personal jewellery essentials…

Diamond stud earrings

Classic and timeless, diamond stud earrings add a touch of sophistication to any outfit and are the perfect choice for any occasion; the true all-rounder. 

Diamond pendant

A delicate necklace is another essential item that can be worn daily. It adds a subtle touch of elegance and can be paired with other necklaces to create an eclectic layered look.

Statement earrings

For special occasions or when you want to make a statement, a pair of bold, eye-catching earrings can add just the right touch of glamour and drama. For bonus value, opt for a detachable pair that can double as a more understated stud.  


A classic watch is a practical and stylish accessory that every modern woman should own. Whether it’s a simple timepiece with a leather strap or an oversized statement accessory, the right watch will complement any outfit. The world of watches is fascinating and once you start researching, I am certain you won’t stop at one.

Cocktail ring

The easiest way to add a splash of colour or an extra little bit of sparkle to your party outfit.

Gold bracelet

A fabulous gold bracelet is just so chic and can elevate an outfit anywhere, anytime. These are not going out of style anytime soon. 

These essentials will take you anywhere, morning, noon, or night, with a modern look of style and ease. A great jewellery collection evolves over time, so don’t be afraid to mix and match styles to create your own individual look.
