The 8 pieces of jewellery you should treat yourself to
I’d start with a magnificent ring – a Jessica McCormack solitaire, perhaps, which could be turned into something more bling for special occasions with one of her clever “party jackets” – a jewelled surround that can be slotted around your everyday ring. Then an everyday watch that’s chic but not too pretty – perhaps Chanel’s classic J12. Add to the mix the simple stud, drop or hoop earrings from Swarovski or Kiki McDonough; longer earrings for the evening (SJ Phillips have some wonderful Georgian choices); a classic silver bracelet or Cartier’s Love bracelet; a pendant and chain necklace from Tiffany; a more showy evening necklace – for this I might choose costume jewellery, but Marni, Miu Miu and Vicki Sarge all have lovely pieces, or for a semi-precious option I’d visit John Lloyd Morgan or Pomegranate. And finally? I'd have to have some pearls -perhaps a little something from Coleman Douglas.
