Many of our fashion rituals have fallen by the wayside this year; our collection of high heels has entered semi-retirement, and our fancy dresses have barely left their wardrobe sanctums. There is. However, one sartorial practice that we’ve outright refused to give up, even amid lockdown, and that’s wearing beautiful jewellery.
Jewellery has the power to make you feel elevated, instantly pulled together in a few seconds flat. And never before has this been so important. While we may not have gotten to wear the clothing we perhaps would have liked over the last few months; jewellery provided us with some comfort. Even when we found ourselves repeatedly donning our (albeit chic) loungewear, we relied on our jewellery to give our daily wares some much-needed polish. It’s amazing what wearing a pair of chic hoops, or a cherished necklace can do for your self-esteem. As such, we’ve found ourselves looking for new pieces to add to our jewellery repertoire; pieces we know we’ll love and wear for years to come. Thankfully we’ve found the perfect edit of jewels in Astrid & Miyu’s new Gaea collection.
At a time when we’ve all come to appreciate nature in a more poignant way, Astrid & Miyu has created a celebration of all things outdoorsy, channelling it into its latest jewellery offering. Drawing divine inspiration from Gaea, the Greek goddess of earth and nature, Astrid & Miyu’s capsule of timeless treasures features ornate flora detailing. Petals adorn necklaces, delicate buds hang delicately from earrings, and botanicals are pressed into coin medallions, much like you would in a well-leafed book to preserve their beauty.
Designed to blend seamlessly with your existing jewellery archive, the Gaea collection is to layer in a multitude of ways. Chunkier chains are softened with fine strands, ears can be curated with an array of studs, cuffs, hoops, and barbells, and rings can be positioned atop or next to one another without looking too bulky.
