Divine Sterling Silver Bracelet...
This gorgeous silver bracelet is truly petite, but it is also very powerful. It may be small in physical size, but it definitely has a large presence. The addition of a thin chain ensures that this piece is as lightweight as possible... you can hardly even feel the weight of it on your wrist. That makes it perfect for the jewellery wearer who is always busy with their hands and who is always on the move. You don't need to worry about this bracelet getting in the way of anything. Be chic and stylish, but also practical and efficient.
Top Tip: The length of this bracelet can be adjusted by sliding the bead. This is effortless elegance at its finest. Wear it over the top of a jumper sleeve by loosening the bracelet, and tighten it when you’re wearing a sleeveless top.

Mirror the falling of autumnal leaves, and foreshadow the re-birth of Spring with these gorgeous Gold Leaf Earrings. Delicate, whimsical and majestic are all words I would associate with them. They are a reminder that all in nature is delicate and transient. They are a reminder that nature can be imbued with magic and wonder. They are also a reminder of how gold was reserved for royalty throughout tradition. For something so small, these earrings definitely do carry a heavy significance and deeper meaning with them.
Top Tip: These earrings can be worn on their own, but can also look great when paired with others in multiple lobe piercings. They are simple and statemented in design, and deliver style without having to shout it from the rooftops.
