With a wealth of over 347K followers on Instagram alone, you know you’re in good hands when it comes to London-based designer Monica Vinader.
Anyone who is anyone has been seen in the likes of her jewels, from Emma Watson to the Duchess of Cambridge. The trick to Monica Vinader’s style is that it’s classy, yet wearable for casual occasions and helps to elevate any outfit whether you’re looking to impress or wanting to style up a simple basic turtleneck or tee. And, we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t fallen head over heels for the new rose gold collection, A Love Affair. We’re itching to get our hands on a pair of the Siren Wire Earrings, embellished with rose quartz.
Modern British jewellery brand, Dinny Hall has been dressing the modern woman for over thirty years, and it has since grown into one of London’s most recognisable jewellery brands.
Having started out with experimental pieces made from natural materials such as leather and wood, Dinny and her team continue to oversee the entire process, from hand-drawing to creating wax models, to hand selecting every gemstone.
If it’s a gemstone number you’re after, Dinny Hall’s new beautiful collection of rings is the place to look.

We’re cheating a little with this one because they don’t have a physical store, but they are stocked at several major stores, including Harvey Nichols. Daisy has always made it their mission to bring ‘the essence of the carefree London girl wherever you are in the world’, but it’s since their mighty collaboration with lifestyle influencer and YouTube sensation Estée Lalonde that the brand has since grown even more so in popularity. Especially among the Insta set.
There’s a new Estée collection in the works, said to be released this week, but you can expect classic, pared back chains and on-trend gold to be the essence of the collection.
