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

You know what will look epic with high top wedge gangsta trainers about which I recently blogged (have a look here)? Extra-large gold chain necklace that is definitely inspired by 90’s rap stars. On a more serious note – this type of bling is my favourite fashion accessory of the moment: it can add instant glamour to any outfit. And when I say any I mean it – it looks just as good with white starched shirt on the way to work, LBD for cocktail hour and even with T-shirt and denim shorts combo a la Lana del Rey (proof below – she looks fab). And the good thing – big designers and more affordable brands both picked up the trend so you have a great range of gold gorgeousness to choose from. Here is my selection:
- Lanvin Swarovski and Cord Necklace, £730 available on farfetch.com
- Vintage Givenchy Gold Plated Necklace, £315 available on asos.com
- Yves Saint Laurent Gold Plated Stingray-Effect Necklace, £920 available at net-a-porter.com
- ID Plaque Necklace, £12 available at asos.com
- Mimco Imperial Bow Chain Necklace, £89 available at House of Fraser
- Michael Kors Logo Necklace, £49 available at nordstrom.com

I just came across these beautiful Chanel Vintage Turnlock earrings and here I go, sharing my find with you (I could have cheekily kept it to myself).
You can get them in 2 sizes, Classic and Jumbo for £290 and £365 respectively. The place to go to is http://www.shopatsophiescloset.com, which apart from a hand picked vintage selection stocks a whole range of other sparkly modern pieces of jewelery and if it is not enough have a look through various headbands – that section surely should be called Blair Waldorf’s closet. Enjoy!
