The beautiful thing about jewellery is that it is in essence, trans-seasonal and trans-generational. The jewellery that your grandmother bought fifty years ago in her twenties, could be passed down to her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and still look as classic and as relevant as the moment she originally bought it.

Jewellery speaks for itself. Along with brooches, ear cuffs (a great alternative to traditional earrings) can speak pride, sexuality and edge. They give a rebellious look, whilst remaining true to the trans-seasonal, trans-generational essence of jewellery.  

 

Unfortunately, I don’t have brooches or ear cuffs that have been passed down to me, but here are some ear cuffs and brooches on the high street which obviously spoke ‘buy me’ – let me know your favourite.
