Reader Treats Just For You!

Gotta have it

We're circling jewellery with circle motifs this week, including this unusual ring from Biagio The Jeweller. The pleasing design symmetry helps us feel balanced. Er, apparently. So it's self-care in shopping form!

Need a bit of balance in your life but can’t quite be bothered to read a self-help book or manage a downward dog with your hangover? I’m hearing you, sister! Much easier, I find, to go buy a piece of jewellery for an instant spiritual uplift – quite apart from looking drop dead gorgeous, circular jewellery will (*cough*) guarantee divine symmetry and balance. There, I bet you’re feeling better already.

 

Biagio multi stone and cubic zirconia ring, £99


This unusual, colourful ring from the multi-award-winning Oxfordshire jeweller is a real talking point, and excellently priced too. Cocktail ring, you say? Make mine a martini, thanks.

 

Astrid & Miyu rose gold and cubic zirconia earrings, £59 

I spent way too much money on this well-priced indie brand’s earrings. I usually go for diddy hoops and studs but these Saturn-inspired rose gold ones make a serious statement.

 

Whistles resin earrings, £28

Whistles jewellery range is underrated, I reckon. Case in point: these tortoiseshell resin circular earrings. Resin is still going strong this season and they’re in the sale – boom.

 

Rosantica at Net-a-Porter wooden earrings, £155

There’s something about these super-summery hoops that make me want to lounge on a yacht (hello sailor!). They’re hand-made in Milan, doncha know.

 

Biagio silver and cubic zirconia necklace, £119


Two circles for the price of one?  You got it.

 

Brave Lotus charm bracelet, £42


This bohemian bangle from this Marlow-based indie brand has summer festivals written all over it. The charms are a compass (so you can find your way back from the beer tent), a feather and a labradorite gemstone. Cute.

 

Balenciaga silver and neon resin earrings, £295


You’ve been warned – neon brights are BACK and there will be no escape over the coming seasons. Dip a toe (actually make that an ear) into the trend with this cooler-than-cool Balenciaga pair.

 

Aurelie Bidermann at Net-a-Porter gold, shell and enamel bracelet, £350

This French designer always nails gorgeously summery pieces like this link bracelet dotted with cute enamelled cowrie shells. Shall we go on holiday right now?
