Wednesday Want

I’m one of those irritatingly delicate little souls who can’t really wear high street jewellery, as it brings me out in a nasty rash if it isn’t plated with precious metal.

This leaves me with a bit of an issue finding attractive, affordable jewellery. I have posted on here about my Etsy finds, which have been brilliant, but as the sellers tend to be in far flung parts delivery times do tend to be loooooong, and I’m an instant gratification kinda gal!

So imagine my delight when I found lovely, affordable, precious metal played jewellery that would arrive within a couple of days!

Step forward Lily King and take a bow. A lovely site, full of beautiful pieces. I ordered this Gold Coin necklace on Sunday, while half-supervising the kids at the seventh level of soft play, and it arrived (beautifully packaged) yesterday.

So on to my Wednesday want; after the success of my last order I’m now lusting after this Silver Wishbone necklace:

And even better, there’s free shipping on orders over £20 with the code FREESHIP. Well, what are you waiting for?

Not so much of a ‘want’ as a ‘just ordered’, but I love these earrings so much I just have to blog about them!

20130313-204956.jpgThey are by MariaFrancescaPepe at My-Wardrobe, and I think they’re fab! I don’t wear a lot of jewellery – the odd bracelet, but rarely earrings; they’re usually too statement-y or too classic. This particular pair are great because they walk the line between statement and classic with ease; edgy enough to be interesting, but not so outré I couldn’t wear them to work. Here’s a side view:

As you might have noticed, I often layer my watch and various bracelets on one wrist, leaving the other one feeling a little bare. I’ve been looking for something to redress the balance, and this gorgeous Africa rose-gold plated cuff by Philippe Audibert, £80, is just the ticket:20130220-091450.jpgA lot of Audibert’s designs are far more detailed and intricate than this particular piece, but I think the chic simplicity of it makes it all the more striking. I’m having surgery on my right hand soon, so really I need to buy it to detract from those ugly stitches, right?

P.S. apologies for the technical issue with a previous post – my fat fingers hit post when they shouldn’t have… #luddite
