Given that jewellery is one of the easiest ways to elevate even the most simple outfit, it’s surprising how often it can be the thing that gets evicted from your shopping cart in favour of more trend-focused, eye-catching pieces (did someone say knee high boots?). But investing in a couple of pieces that you can wear with anything – think gold studs, a chain necklace and a few go-to rings – makes the world of difference to your wardrobe as a whole, as does being able to pop on a pair of statement earrings after a long day to take you straight on to cocktail hour.
Similar to the fashion crowd’s love of specific brands such as Bottega Veneta and, closer to home, Matteau and Georgia Alice, a few jewellery labels stand out as being go-tos for influencers, celebrities and fashion editors alike time and time again. Below, we’ve rounded up the five that deserve a spot in your checkout.
Meadowlark has long been a favourite of those across the ditch in New Zealand, with the Kiwi brand expanding into engagement and occasion rings due to high demand a few years ago (it’s behind designer Georgia Alice’s incredible bespoke engagement ring). Now its pieces are often spotted on the world’s biggest influencers and celebrities.
