Most people focus on updating their wardrobes when the Autumn/Winter season arrives, which is usually something I spend time on too. However, this year I’ve also been doing a bit of an Autumn clear out, which saw me give away lots of my old jewellery and accessories, making space for some newer, practical pieces.
Of course, Autumn/Winter screams out party season, so there’s no doubt I look for a few sparkly pieces. But it’s more about switching up my silver pieces for more rustic looking gold and rose gold items, that add that touch of warmth to my Winter looks.
As my wrists and fingers are super tiny, I tend to avoid splurging on bracelets and rings, and focus much more on new earrings and necklaces when it comes to online jewellery shopping.
As you can see from the photos above, my first update is a pair of beautiful gold earrings, delicate and detailed, yet large enough to make that extra little impact we all need for days in the office, or for going out for dinner/drinks on the weekend. I fell in love with these as soon as I was browsing the earrings pages over at AU-rate, which has been one of my favourite online jewellery retailers for a long long time.
These are called the Infinity Heart Huggie Earrings, which are vermeil and cast from pure gold. They may look small in size with tiny cascading hearts surrounding the loop, but if you look closely, the Infinity Heart Huggie Earrings create an illusion of an infinite loop around your ear.
Also perfect for wearing as a second pair of earrings paired with a more daring design, if you want to create a more layered effect. You can find lots of places which offer ear piercing, if you never really thoughts about having a second hole in your ears before. I browsed lots of piercing inspiration and saw this is quite a big trend for A/W – large, drop earrings in the first hole, followed my a smaller, intricate hoop in the second.
I have to confess that one of the things that blows me away with jewellery from AU-rate is the perfect packaging every time! These cute pink boxes and little jewellery pouches are just the cutest. When these earrings arrived on my doorstep, it just makes the whole un-boxing that little more special! They really do take care to deliver their luxury pieces in style.
I don’t know about you, but there is something I really love about switching to gold and rose gold when the weather starts to get colder, and my fashion starts to get cosier. It’s like a cosy little update – warm, rich jewellery pieces to compliment those snuggly jumpers!
As you can see from the images, these are the perfect pair to wear on a daily basis, as well as for occasions. Now I just need to get myself a dainty gold chain necklace, maybe with a sweet little pendant, to pair with the earrings for those evenings I decide to wear a plunging dress or shirt!
Let the Autumn/Winter fashion updates begin!
