Gift Guide: Minimalist Jewellery

Gift Guide: Minimalist Jewellery

gold necklace

Like it or not, the Christmas shopping season is upon us and it’s time to get the lists in order. In the first of our festive gift guides, we take a look at some simple jewellery.

This year saw a definite shift away from big chunky jewellery towards a more delicate, almost ethereal aesthetic. No longer did we want to weigh ourselves down in rap star-style accoutrements, but rather, we yearned for pretty, simple things that sit on our necklines and wrists without distracting from our overall look. In 2014, it’s all about minimalism, the simple details that make for the perfect conversation starter.

Whether you’re after something special for a loved one, or you feel you deserve a personal treat (you do), behold our pick of the loveliest, delicate accessories, sure to make a Christmas wish come true.
