I have been aware of Stella & Dot for a couple of years, but last week at an event I attended I finally got to have a really good look at a large selection of the range. And I was really impressed!
If you haven't heard of them, it's because it's not available in stores, but through direct selling by S&D Stylists at events, in a similar way to Avon.
Jewellery is something that many of my personal styling and image consulting clients struggle with, and finding simple, wearable and well made pieces can be a challenge.
I am pretty picky about jewellery, but there were plenty of items I would have loved to buy there and then! They have some amazing statement pieces, 3 of which are below, but equally lovely are the small charm necklaces.
Prices are from around £40 upwards for a necklace.
These are my 3 favourite Statement Necklaces from their AW13 collection, which you can buy from finding a representative on their website, or contacting them and holding an event for you and your friends.
But first some tips.
- When choosing a necklace make sure you have a particular outfit or top in mind that it will work with, and preferably try it on together.
- Be clear of your personal style and choose jewellery that reflects it. Your jewellery should support and add to the outfit you're wearing, not conflict or be added 'just because'. It needs to relate somehow - say by colour, or in its style otherwise your overall look will be confused rather than 'put together'.
