EXPERT JEWELLERY-STYLING ADVICE FROM ANABELA CHAN AND ANNOUSHKA DOUKAS

We asked Sloane Street jewellers Cassandra Goad, Annoushka Doukas and Anabela Chan for their expert advice on how to style jewellery when life is limited in terms of destinations. The consensus? The days of saving your best pieces for big occasions are over…

STATEMENT EARRINGS

“Joyful and colourful statement earrings are the ultimate mood-lifters. Guaranteed to elevate even the most casual of looks; from WFH silk pyjamas to chunky knits or a crisp, white t-shirt.” – Anabela Chan

COLOUR POP

“Almost everyone has had a birthday in or around lockdown by now! It’s the year to have a wonderful new jewel that adds sparkle, colour, and fun to every day. Wear my crazy colour combination Qin and Han earrings – maybe orange fire opals and pink tourmalines, or green peridot and red garnet – or enjoy the sparkle of my Cirkel rings!” – Cassandra Goad

MEANINGFUL PIECES

“Our styling advice for 2021 is to wear your luxuries daily. Putting on a beautiful piece of solid gold jewellery, particularly if it has a talismanic message or sentimental meaning, can make another day in lockdown that little bit more glamourous! We would suggest our Lovelock on a Chunky Cable Chain, or a simple Zodiac pendant, or a pair of Bamboo Hoops.” – Annoushka Ducas

LAYER YOUR NECKLACES

“While the weather is so cold, I love wearing a thin wool polo-neck, with two or three gold chains layered on top – it’s always best to mix up the lengths and chain weights for a more interesting look and add charms if you want to add detail. Pop on some jeans, converse and a coat for an effortless, laid back look” – Annoushka Ducas
