12 Irish jewellery pieces to snap up for under €100

You've seen the postman so much that he's practically part of your household at this stage, but clothes parcels just don't have the same buzz that they used to. Why not spice up your jewellery collection with our picks of Irish brands that won't break the bank.

Buying clothes at the minute feels pointless – no one is feeling their best and there’s certainly nowhere to take that new sequined number, other than to SuperValu and back.

But jewellery is another story. You don’t need to knee-cap your ego by forcing yourself into a pre-COVID dress size, they’re easy to wear and will lift any outfit, from that silky pyjama top that could be a blouse to sweats and a crewneck.

Every item in this selection comes from an Irish brand, ranging from small independent businesses launched during the pandemic, to more established businesses that are making waves from our little island across the industry. As well as the obvious bonus of all the good endorphins guaranteed when you #ShopIrish, these pieces are versatile enough to become staples in your jewellery collection.

Here’s our pick of “pick me ups” to get you through this endless lockdown number three.

 

Keep it simple

Sparkle chain necklace, €17, By Sophie

Let’s start off with a classic jewellery go-to; gold chains. You can not go wrong with these gold chain necklaces and bracelets, take it from someone who has only recently (in the last year or two) gotten on board the chunky chain; they are without a doubt the most easy-to-wear jewellery trend you can invest in. Leave it to just one or double them up for a layered look.

Have some fun

If there’s something we all need right now, it’s something to make us smile and inject some colour into our dreary days. Catch yourself wearing one of these fun, personalise-able pieces in the mirror and they’re guaranteed to do just that. These quirky statement pieces are great worn with more serious work from home attire, or just to add an element of subtle playfulness to any outfit. 

Mother of…

As of late, pearls are no longer limited to being the accomplice of a chic tweed skirt suit. Thanks to big-name brands like Vivienne Westwood, these natural treasures are having a resurgence. Here are a few Irish pearly pieces for everyday wear.

Must-haves

Similarly to their gold chain cousin, these gold earrings are easy to dress up or down and are a jewellery box staple. Each pair of these earrings are fun and chic in equal measure – an investment anyone would find hard to regret.
