As Michael Kors so eloquently said it, accessories are the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit. There’s no doubt – jewellery is truly transformative both in the literal and figurative sense of the word. Unapologetically big earrings double up as our security blankets, stacked rings are great for distracting from a long overdue manicure, and layering necklaces is our go-to hack for lending a plain t-shirt some much-needed character.
Every girl has her daily rotation of bijuox. These aren’t precious heirlooms passed down from great-grandma or exquisite fine jewellery with heart attack inducing pricetags. Acutely aware of our tendencies to lose pieces as we go about our busy lives, we lean towards affordable pieces. That way, even if we lost an earring in the ocean (remember that iconic scene from Keeping Up With the Kardashians?), we wouldn’t be Kim Kardashian hysterical. We might, at most, shed a tear.
As far as affordable jewellery brands, there are plenty that the high-street has to offer. Yet, there aren’t that many that nail the sweet spot balance between quality and price. Fret not, we’ve done the legwork for you so you don’t have to spend forever trawling through reviews online. You’re welcome!
