This post contains gifted items
I think we can safely say that despite the fact September hasn’t even finished, I’m well into Winter and Christmas mode already. Having already written about preparing for the festive season and my Winter travel wish list as well as gearing up for gift guide season, yay! Which is madness. I’m not trying to wish the year away or anything but I feel like everything has landed on top of us this year quicker and harder than ever before.
Perhaps that’s just me. I have had a BIT OF A YEAR. But that’s another story for another post. Instead today, I wanna talk about jewellery. Because I love jewellery. Despite not being particularly fashion conscious, jewellery is definitely an exception. I think jewellery is a lovely gift to both give and receive for almost any occasion.
I don’t really have a firm favourite metal either. I love white gold, rose gold, gold and silver and all different styles and designs. Jewellery is so creative and versatile and I love how certain pieces can completely change a look or change what sort of style you’re going for.
I tend to land on the same handful of pieces depending on the time of year. For example, I have a pair of snowflake earrings in this post that I probably wouldn’t wear during Summer. So today I wanted to share my Winter jewellery picks for this year and a little bit about each piece!
1. Carrie Elizabeth Mini Hugging Hoops in Sterling Silver
These earrings were gifted but they will definitely be in my ears a lot over the Winter and Christmas period. These incredibly delicate, cute earrings hug your ear nicely and contain 0.12 carats of diamonds set within them too. Despite being so small, they really make a statement.
Carrie Elizabeth is a new brand discovery for me and I know I’ll be purchasing from them in the future for a special occasion. They have a vast range of styles and collections, including their Moonstone Rings, which are absolutely swoon-worthy!
2. Mickey Mouse Bracelet
My boyfriend bought me this for my most recent birthday on 4th September and it’s one of my favourite pieces of jewellery I own. But sadly, it was also the one I struggled to take photos of the most! So please excuse the really bad photo of this but I hope it’s good enough for you to see how cute the pendant is!
3. Snowflake Earrings – Diamonique
Obviously I’m not going to wear the same pair of earrings every day this Winter. And I’ll likely save my Carrie Elizabeth ones for more special occasions. So for more chilled, every day wear, I’ll definitely be wearing my snowflake earrings that were a gift from my Mum a couple of Christmases ago. I absolutely love these and they allow me to embrace my love for the cold weather even more! I definitely feel a bit like Elsa in these.
4. Beauty and the Beast Necklace
This necklace doesn’t get worn much because the pendant is quite big so I don’t tend to wear it for every day use. But I definitely want to get some wear out of it this Winter because it’s SO pretty. This necklace is a copy of the one that Belle wears in The Beauty and the Beast remake, see! Again, another gift from my boyfriend.
5. Leaf Earrings
I’m not sure what these earrings are called, the ones that go up your ears like this? But I really like them and again, these were another gift from my boyfriend for a birthday or Christmas or something. He knows his jewelry! I have a lot of ear holes, 6 in total, so I like to mix up my earrings as much as I can and earrings are probably my favourite type of jewellery to receive!
