Trends come and trends go, but when it comes to jewellery, although fast fashion can be tempting, there are certain timeless pieces of jewellery every woman should own. Although I don’t get to wear jewellery as much as I used to, I still take great pleasure in doing so – I love that feeling of instant glamour that jewellery gives an otherwise bedraggled stressed mum, and so whether it’s for a girly lunch, date night or just because….here are five pieces of jewellery every woman should own.
A gold necklace
There’s something about a gold necklace that is just so elegant. You can either wear it on its own or mismatched with whatever else takes your fancy for a more care-free look. I love this stunning Waterfall Necklace (£60) from Danish jewellery designer Pernille Corydon, which comes in gold-plated silver with 7 slim gold keys on a simple chain.

A diamond bracelet
What’s not to love about a diamond bracelet? This jewellery staple is the perfect delicate addition to any wrist and again is lovely worn either on its own or stacked with lots of other bracelets. This Diamond Hearts Bracelet (£125) from Gemondo Jewellery features a marriage of 9ct white gold and beautiful diamonds decorating the inner heart motif, ensuring you’ll always be wearing your heart on your sleeve.

A cocktail ring
For those days when you want a bit more than your wedding ring from F.Hinds, you need a cocktail ring too! This semi precious 24k gold plated Cocktail Ring (£24) from Lime Lace is the perfect way to make a statement with its large navy blue semi-precious stone don’t you think?

Alternatively if you have a significantly bigger budget, you (or your loved one!) could invest in antique jewellery instead.
A vintage brooch
I’ve always had a bit of a thing for vintage brooches. I think they look so good pinned onto a fur coat or the lapel of an elegant wool coat. For a beautiful selection of vintage and antique brooches have a look at https://carusjewellery.com/.
A gorgeous watch
I have become a bit of a watch addict in the last couple of years as it’s the one piece of jewellery I feel like I can wear every day no matter how I feel or what I’m doing or wearing. One brand I’m loving right now is Nordgreen Watches which have a lovely collection based on Scandinavian design for both women and men alike. I’m currently in love with their Infinity – Rose Gold watch below (reasonably priced for a watch at £159). Don’t miss your chance to win a Nordgreen watch of your own in the giveaway below!

What’s not to love about stacking up charm bracelets? I love these beautiful sterling silver beads and pretty charm bracelets (£22 each) from The Pink Pheasant which look fabulous worn on their own or with a mix of bracelets.

For an instant luxe fix, gold earrings are always a sure fire. These Orecchini SKIN Bronzo (250 EUR) earrings from Italian designer Giulia Barela are totally magical and inspired by the sinuous, enveloping body of the snake no less!

Here’s one last bonus jewellery item to add to the list. Diamond earrings are fantastic accessories that can be used to complement various outfits and I personally find them to be very versatile.
This pair of earrings from Brilliant Earth features a natural inspired design with delicate branches that curve up the ear.
