Statement earrings are my total weakness. Not that I wear them much to tell you the truth. When I put a pair on, usually simple diamond earrings suitable for daily wear, I get stuck in them for months. I just don’t take them off – not for parties or even showers and bedtimes. For me, a change of earrings requires a specific mood (I am just lazy when it comes to earrings), and it does help when the substitute earrings are inspiring.
And that is exactly why I am head over heels in love with Dicha Jewellery and their statement earrings. The company was established in 2009 by two business partners Diane and Chantal who previously worked together on fashion and beauty brands. The pieces manage to be striking but not in the ‘wear-once-with-that-specific-outfit’ kinda way. They are classic and timeless as the designs are inspired by (and often made with) antique statement pieces. Indeed such timelessness combined with attention-drawing effect makes me abandon my usual laziness towards earrings’ swap!
Below are my picks from the current collection, to explore other jewellery inspired by the times past or for purchases visit their website.
- 40’s inspired Carola, £350
- Silver and Agate Mira, £215
- 30’s inspired Vina, £350
- Pink Agate creation Ciara, £338
- Selia Deco design, £300
- Cornelia (very Prada-esque), £350

Post after post I have been going on about colour as the most important trend setter of the season. And one colour trend in particular is bright neon shades. Earlier this year I have already blogged about bright handbags but this time I have a new addition to the collection – DesignInverso handbags I discovered at Luisaviaroma.com. At £78 they have the designer feel without the high price tag. What I absolutely love about the range is that they are a clever imitation of infamous Chanel shape – quilted and with a long chain. Where is the clever, you might ask? Well the handbags are PVC and not leather plus the colours are world apart from the usual black and red Chanel flap bags we see everywhere. And that is what makes them fashionable – playful and fun interpretation of one of the most classic bags making it not just practical but totally trendy. So pick your favourite shade and wear it with, well, more or less anything for the fashionably required splash of colour!
