I don’t collect much and I am a big advocate for selling/throwing/giving things that don’t get much wear (read: love) anymore away. All you need is less. The only thing I just can not get enough of is petit jewelry. My collection is ever growing (and growing) and I believe a small touch of silver and gold makes any outfit more personal. Big love, tiny jewels.
Roses. Sabrina actually introduced me to this cute brand. Usually, roses are not my thing, but I can totally imagine these with a bunch of other necklaces!
Initials. My love for personalized jewelry started with the ‘Carrie’ necklace in SATC, I have been a sucker for it since. DoDo makes the best, you can put them on a necklace or bracelet, and – my personal fav – on earrings.
Ear Piece. If I had to name one store in Amsterdam on where to shop for the most amazing petit jewelry, I would definitely say Lock, Stock & Barrel. Not only do they sell my favorite brand Noguchi, a beautiful Japanese brand that created my bunny necklace (as pictured right next to my Acne clutch that currently serves as a jewelry box) and other lovers like Wouters & Hendrix.
One of the girls started her own jewelry brand, called Trispel & Ruis. My personal favorite? Her amazing ear-pieces. Unfortunately the store is closing soon, but luckily Trispel & Ruis will be available online.
Ear Souvenir. One of my closest friends Yara has the best ear-party possible (she even got pierced by thé Colby Smith of NY Adorned) and she gets one as a souvenir in every city she visits. I love to gift collectors like her teeny tiny earrings, to make sure I am always on their mind, quite literally.
Happy Ball. I don’t take my jewelry too serious (I wear a golden bunny around my neck, a bat on my wrist and top everything off with neon strings), so when I spotted this happy ball ring I was immediately a fan. It is a bit expensive, but Trine Tuxen recently also did a more affordable collection in collaboration with Stine Goya.
Stackable rings. The perfect, affordable simple rings to start (of finish) your ring-party with.
