Radiant brilliance always captures the human eye. We love sparkly things, simply because sparkles are so pretty and stunning. And pavé jewellery is especially dazzling. With its setting, the paved surface of small closely-set gemstones create an illusion of a never ending dazzling sparkle. We explore The Shimmering Brilliance Of Pavé Jewellery.
Pavé jewellery possesses an enduring appeal that transcends trends and fashion. Its classic design, characterised by a continuous surface of shimmering stones, exudes an air of timeless elegance that is simultaneously bold and romantic.
Pavé jewellery effortlessly transitions from day to night with its incredible versatility adding sparkle to every look and occasion. With its balance between understated glamour and opulence pavé jewellery’s delicate and intricate design for a subtle statement.
Pavé setting is a design featuring small diamonds along a band of metal – particularly a ring. The French word translates to “paved,” and this jewellery technique was named for its resemblance to a paved or cobblestone road. The small, closely-set gemstones create a continuous, uninterrupted surface of crystals and gemstones where the effect looks like the metal is paved with stones, capturing the fire of the gems from within for an intense sparkle.
On a ring, the pavé setting brings attention to the centre stone to make it appear bigger and brighter. For intricate pavé design, the setting adds to the overall brilliance and shine for a rich and luxurious sparkle.
Pavé has been around for hundreds of years with designs dating back to the Georgian era of the 1700s with diamond and turquoise in rings, lockets, brooches, earrings and other precious objects. A resurgence in the 1900s saw pavé return to fashion with engagement rings where pavé design continues to shine amongst jewellery pieces today. The closely set gemstones in pavé jewellery allow for maximum light reflection, resulting in unparalleled brilliance and sparkle. The stunning play of light adds depth and dimension to the piece for a guaranteed stunning reaction.
Crafting pavé jewellery requires meticulous skill and precision. Expert artisans delicately set each stone with no gaps or spaces remaining between the gemstones. The stones are held in place using small beads or prongs, allowing maximum light to pass through and enhance their brilliance. The process demands exceptional craftsmanship with an eye for detail, as each stone must be placed precisely to create a seamless, shimmering surface.

With its intriguing symbolism and captivating design, evil eye jewellery is a timeless talisman of protection and style with a fascinating history and contemporary significance. From its historical roots to its modern interpretations, evil eye jewellery continues to enchant wearers with its unique blend of tradition and style.
An evil eye can see no good
Evil eye origins
Eyes are the windows to the soul. The fear of an “evil” look holds enormous power as a powerful superstition with the eye being the most powerful point from which the body gives off energy. A malicious look is powerful enough to bring about disaster for the person its gaze falls upon, casting malevolence while causing harm or misfortune. To ward off this negative energy, the talisman and amulet of the evil eye became imbued with powers and worn as protection.
Evil eye jewellery finds its origins in the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece to later feature in the Assyrian, Phoenician and Ottoman cultures while also appearing in the roots of Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu religions to reflect their own traditions and beliefs. In Mediterranean cultures, evil eye jewellery is deeply intertwined with daily life as a powerful amulet against ill fortune and envy. In others, the evil eye carries additional cultural significance for fertility, protection during childbirth and a spiritual awakening.
The symbol of the evil eye was used to ward off curses and devious glares of envy. Believed to possess the power to ward off evil and protect the wearer from harm, the eye with its watchful gaze serves as a talisman of vigilance and awareness. Used as a sign of protection against illness, misfortune and death, the evil eye stands for strength and power, exuding positivity, good luck and healthy living.
As a symbol, it is ancient, rich and powerful. The eye represents inner-vision, self-awareness and a focus on spiritual growth. As amulet inspired pieces, evil eye jewellery allows us to manifest our goals while dispelling bad vibes.
Eyes have a language of their own

The evil eye symbol is typically depicted as four concentric circles in the shape of an eye with vibrant colours and intricate details and most commonly in the form of a blue glass bead.
Decorative elements such as gemstones, enamel work and intricate metalwork would also feature, adding an aesthetic appeal to its symbolic value of protection and healing properties. Its global relevance, versatile design and beauty with a hint of the supernatural allows the desire for positive energy to unite with the need for protection.
Modern aesthetics and contemporary designs in evil eye pieces are infused with personal meaning and style. With birthstones and gems balancing energies, promoting positive vibrations and warding off negative influences, evil eye jewellery is a contemporary talisman and a stylish reminder to stay mindful, protected and attuned to your intuition.
With its blend of ancient symbolism and contemporary style, evil eye jewellery has evolved and continues to adapt to modern fashion trends. Evil eye jewellery preserves its significance as a symbol of protection, serving as a powerful link to ancient beliefs, cultural heritage and timeless style.

But gold shines like fire blazing in the night, supreme of lordly wealth
– Pindar, Olympian Odes, c518-438 BC
Gold has illustrious qualities. Pure and durable, gold can be beaten, hammered and spun. Its brilliance survives time, burial and time. Gold has played an important role in history and stories, where the Tree of Life was said to have roots of gold, and referenced across literature from Greek mythology with King Midas to the Lord of the Rings. The precious metal is essential to identity, status and power, defining social position, wealth and grandeur and synonymous with jewellery. Welcome to the MYJS Style Guide To Gold Jewellery.
The meaning and history of gold
Since Pharoahs walked the earth, we have been irresistibly drawn to the glitter of gold. Its enduring allure has seen us use it as currency, gifting it and adorning ourselves and our surroundings in it. The warm sun-drenched coloured metal is beautiful to behold, representing wealth, generosity, and compassion, while being synonymous with divinity, wisdom and power.
On a spiritual level, gold stands as the master healer, acting as the conduit to the source of all being.
Gold has featured prominently in our stories, where the Tree of Life was said to have roots of gold, and referenced across ancient literature in Greek mythology with King Midas to the Lord of the Rings’ Precious.
Treasured for centuries, gold remains the popular setting for contemporary jewellery. With its lustrous yellow colour, gold is highly valued for many reasons, including its rarity and durability. Its rareness has been imbued with temptation. Ancient tombs from Egypt’s Tutankhamun and Cleopatra to Greek temples and Roman Emperors have unearthed beautiful golden pieces.
Since 6,000 BC, goldsmithing has been prized in ancient cultures, from Mesopotamia to China, Egypt, India, Greece and Rome. Techniques of chasing, granulation, filigree and repoussé have influenced jewellery design with necklaces, pendant, earrings, bracelets and rings, presenting a variety of shapes, colours and carats. In its purist form, gold is very soft at 24 carats. This malleability means it can be easily shaped and moulded for versatile intricate designs and shapes.
Gold can also be mixed with copper or silver for a more durable alloy at 18K, 14K and 9K making it ideal for everyday wear.
And most importantly, gold is hypoallergenic, meaning it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin.
Stay bold, stay gold
How to wear gold jewellery
Gold endures because of its timeless allure. Gold can dress a look up or down, taking a casual look to smart and a formal look to stunning. Gold’s value and durability also allows pieces to be passed down generations as meaningful sentimental heirlooms.
In fashion and jewellery, gold’s warm lustre complements every skin tone, illuminating natural tones, especially darker hair and warmer skin tones.
Gold shines with simple, neutral looks, particularly black, white and red, as well as green, yellow and blue. Busy patterns don’t work as well, because gold loves to shine – though this doesn’t mean we can’t experiment to make it work.
Like gold, she is radiant and pure
Gold and sparkles
Yellow gold loves sparkly gemstones and suits every gemstone.
Diamonds and clear crystal are a stylish go-to for staple jewellery designs.
Deep blue such as sapphire, aquamarine or blue topaz are a sophisticated and luxurious mix.
Bright pinks such as rose crystals give a bold feminine twist to classic jewellery designs adding a touch of vintage style.
Royal purple hues such as amethyst are opulent and plush while the dark charcoal of black crystal or black pearls make a minimalist modern statement.
The bright colours of white pearls, yellow topaz, orange hyacinth or greens of emerald and peridot are a gorgeous nature-inspired palette perfect for the earth goddess, uniting modern style with a boho feel.
Anyone can find the dirt in someone. Be the one that finds the gold
– Proverbs 11:27
Let each piece shine Gold is beautiful – and deserves its place under the spotlight or in the sun. So keep it simple, because less is more. Leave your look uncluttered to allow your gold pieces to stand out.
If opting for more than one piece, avoid the busy background of patterns to take the focus off our pieces. Let gold stun, opting for subtle rather than over-the-top.
Make a statement Make an impact with a statement piece and build the entire look around this. Bold gold loves attention, so standout with elaborate pieces or a delicate stack
You are gold baby – solid gold
Mix those metals Mixed metals will always trend, so mixing your gold with silver, rose gold or platinum is always in-fashun and far from being a fashion faux-pas. Just keep it balanced or layer up for a casual contrasting look.
Wear what you love But it comes down to not sticking to the rules: wear what you love and don’t be afraid to experiment. Gold is classic, transcending trends and styles. Go for different lengths and don’t be afraid to experiment with different sizes and textures for dazzling combinations, bold statements or a layered stack. Fashion and jewellery is all about attitude, so embrace who you are and rock what makes you feel great.
The whole universe is based on rhythms. Everything happens in spirals and circles
The world is full of Circles, from mathematics to the divine and natural balance. It’s perfection in shape has become a vital foundation in the modern world of technology and architecture, to design in art and symbolism in cultures.
In fashion, accessories make or break the outfit, taking any outfit from drab to fab. One necklace to stand the test of time is the Circle Necklace.
A particular favourite with our Princess Katherine, the circle necklace is the little black dress of jewellery. With its versatile classic design, the piece is fundamental to every modern wardrobe.
As a universal shape, the circle transcends geography, language, culture, and time, representing eternity, femininity, wholeness and the cycle of life. The sun and the moon have captured humanity’s attention as some of these most memorable and powerful symbols.
The revered mandala of Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam serves to stimulate the unconscious mind, representing the human’s journey through life toward unity and oneness. In Ancient Chinese philosophy, the Yin and the Yang come together as opposing complementary forces into the meaningful circular icon of one while the Ancient Greeks esteemed the circle’s perfection in geometry.
The Japanese “Enso” channels the circle as a universal expression of wholeness living deep within our beings, prizing the circle’s curves in calligraphy through impeccable brushstrokes while indigenous cultures respect its power of healing, family structure, and gatherings for meetings, songs and dances.
Most things look better when you put them in a circle
Circles continue to influence technology, cultures and design, particularly as the building block of fashion and jewellery where it is essential to jewellery silhouettes such as pendants, bracelets, earrings and rings.
As a necklace, circles are a classic design, presenting a variety of styles built upon the universal shape. As a pendant, it is a timeless piece of jewellery that never goes out of style and a must-have for every stylish wardrobe.
The simplicity of the open circle necklace is a sleek sophisticated design as an elegant statement of forever.
The wheel is come full circle
– William Shakespeare
The open circle necklace embellished with a pavé setting of clear crystals takes the clean curves of the circle pendant next level, easily catching the light and adding a subtle shimmer.
If one circle is beautiful, more is better. With their sleek contours, a duo or trio of interlocking circles are a bold fashion statement. Emphasising endless love, devotion and everlasting memories, their connection represents the unbreakable bond between loved ones. With all the space to capture special names and dates, interlocking circles can be personalised for a truly unique keepsake to take jewellery to a whole new level of special.

I’m a good girl who wears her halo stylishly askew
– Donna Figueroa
Halo jewellery history
Halo jewellery first originated during the 1700s to 1830s Georgian era when jewellery was designed to showcase the beauty and value of gemstones. But halo jewellery would be especially popular in the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s – alongside Octagon and Asscher cuts and Cluster earrings.
It was a style born post-crisis from the interwar years where boldness was embraced and imagination let loose. Art Deco traces its inspirations back to 1700s Industrial England as an era of dramatic technological change, social upheaval and political and economic crises.
While a century has passed since Art Deco was all the rage, we see now more than ever the need for these daring and courageous attitudes to still stand. In our quest for authenticity, our reach for fearless lines, irreverent inspiration and unusual design is all about standing out and being fabulously loud.
She’s a little bit of heaven with a wild side
The freedom in the design of halo jewellery means there is no limit in style for gemstones of all colours – from diamonds to clear crystals, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and more – cuts such as Round Brilliance to Cushion Cut, Octagon, Asscher, Pear and Oval cuts – and sizes.
The halo setting is effective for affordable jewellery pieces, as the halo of stones creates the illusion of a larger, more expensive stone. This is due to the surrounding smaller stones reflecting the light of the central stone back. The halo design adds extra sparkle and glamour to any piece of jewellery, making it perfect for special occasions or everyday wear.
Life is a luminous halo
Halo jewellery fashion
Halo jewellery is beautiful and glamorous, perfect for making a statement. As a timeless choice with more sparkle, halo jewellery is the instant confidence booster, so go fierce – in attitude and look. It’s a great choice for adding a touch of elegance and glamour to our wardrobe.
Halo jewellery can easily be worn solo for minimalist chic and instant polish. Also ideal for layering, a halo ring works beautifully alongside other rings, particularly when mixing metals. A halo necklace is an excellent anchor, serving as a stunning focal base piece in a stack.
Perfect for a luxurious, glammy look with special events, feel like a queen with swept-up hair and eye-catching clusters of gemstones with earrings, necklace, bracelet and ring.
I walked 500 miles to see a halo, when I opened my eyes, I was blind as can be
– Tom Waits
Halo jewellery also adds to the power business look with a touch of drama for polish, especially popping against conventional business suits.
Want it all? Halo jewellery works beautifully with bright colours: from brilliant reds, yellows and neons, go all the way to over-the-top-fabulousness.
Working the loose boho look or a baggy sweater? Halo jewellery balances all that softness with a dash of sparkle that’s just so right.

We should always aim for adventurous with colours that are assertive without being aggressive; colours that boldly dominate without being violent, all the while driving to a positive, bright future.

It’s all about adding zhush to the everyday – and standing out in your own unique way.

Purity, perfection and invincible power belongs to diamonds and clear crystals to focus, amplify and transform energy.
Natural upheaval, immense geological shifts, volcanic activity and the grinding down of mountains means their gems and stones are imbued with the aura of magic to protect our bodies and spirits across the centuries.
From climate change to political and economic insecurity intended to erode our armour, it’s reasonable enough to seek sources of strength, comfort and meaning as powerful shields against daily life.
Sparkle and shine
As the hue for breaking barriers and inspiring change, the mix between red and purple is a sensory uplifting colour to boost creativity levels for a transformation of the soul.

The cut of a diamond or gem’s shape ultimately determines their ability to sparkle. A gem possesses a unique shine defined by the number of facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, these facets work to maximise the gem’s ability to draw in and reflect the light for an exclusive brilliance and sparkle. Extraordinary and classic, welcome to The Unique Versatility Of Teardrop Jewellery.
Every drop counts
Celebrities from Rhianna to Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton and many more love to flash their teardrop pear-shaped gems for the world to see thanks to its rare sparkle. We love its shape for its uniqueness and versatility, complementing vintage to modern styles.
Resembling a dew droplet and the shape of the luscious pear, teardrop-shaped gems with their asymmetrical curves combine the round brilliant cut with the points of a Marquise. Known for its distinctive pear shape, the teardrop features one rounded end tapering to an opposite point for a striking silhouette. This makes the gem appear larger while increasing the sparkle.
With more surface area than round cut diamond rings, the overall effect of its brilliant symmetry and design is a stunning dangling bead for a sleek look that is both unique, timeless and classic.
Listen to the rhythm of the water drop
Whether the point faces up or down largely depends on the setting and can be a personal preference – especially for engagement rings -though the standard is point up and drop down for an impactful visual effect that is eye-catching and always flattering.
While the teardrop is not as popular as the princess or round brilliant, its shape holds an unconventional appeal for modern vintage-inspired and modern-yet-timeless designs that elongates the area its featured upon – especially fingers, décolletages and ears.
Every teardrop is precious. If some drop, make sure they’re worth crying for: you can never pick them up and put them back.
The symbolism of pear-shape gems are associated with tears – more specifically, tears of joy, linking with marriage, happy occasions and love. Wearing teardrop jewellery is associated with fierce confidence, marking new beginnings and hope.
They can feature easily as a large statement piece or smaller for subtle everyday wear. From adding a touch of elegance to a formal look or adding a bit of zhush to the staple tshirt and jeans, teardrop jewellery never looks over-the-top and flashy.
It’s funny how a heart is two teardrops upside down
First fashioned by Flemish diamond polisher and cutter Lodewyk van Berquem of Belgium in the early 1400s, his one-of-a-kind placement of diamonds laid the foundations for today’s modern symmetry in diamond polishing and cutting. The teardrop pear-shaped cut uses either 71 or 58 triangle shaped facets and often causes the loss of a great deal of rough diamond – an expensive process that makes for an exceptionally rare shape.
While the teardrop has waxed and waned in popularity across the ages, its uniqueness always returns to the limelight. Teardrop jewellery are the versatile and elegant accessories to add sophistication and emotional depth to your look while always making a statement to express your unique sense of style.
The true joy of nature is when every drop of water shines like a pearl

Our DNA is coded for our social structure, where living for others – our family, our friends and the rest of society – is the standard. We spend so much time living for others, we forget to take care of ourselves. So take a deep breath today and say .. I choose me.
Popping on your baubles is looking after you. Treating yourself to a glittery gift is mindfulness. Buying sparkles for your friends is the gift of giving and passing on the sparkle. Wearing jewellery is a conscious decision to shine. Jewellery Is Self-Care: I Choose Me – you’re welcome.
Jewellery is the most transformative thing you can wear
I choose me
When you say “I choose me”, you are saying:
“I am being authentically me, I am accepting who I am, the life I live, my quirks and all the bits and pieces that make me uniquely me. I choose to move to the beat of my own drum.”
“I choose me” is self-care. It’s a decision that empowers us to look after our physical and mental wellness efficiently and conveniently. We set the standards of our life for our happiness and peace.
It means you love yourself enough to let go off anything that make you unhappy. It means you love yourself enough to sparkle and shine. Self-care is a necessity. Not looking after you is a sure way to mental and physical burnout.
No one knows us better than we know ourselves. This gives us the conscious decision and permission to always love ourselves above everyone else. This means you can always trust and depend upon you.
It doesn’t mean you can’t depend on and trust others: it means when you choose you, you won’t be disappointed.
Jewellery is always the perfect reminder to sparkle – with these reasons to say “I choose me”.
Surround yourself with sparkles
Popping on your baubles amplifies the shine from within. And jewellery is the perfect encouragement to drive you forward. Stagnation is death – not moving at all gets us nowhere and stops us in our track.
Progress is always preferred – even if it’s a few steps sideways, backwards to move forwards or even in circles. Moving means life. Moving motivates us to keep finding that fire and powering through – and sparkling brightly
I see bold accessories as a woman’s armour
– Rachel Zoe
Celebrating our achievements builds our self-confidence. Buying that bracelet after getting that promotion, popping on that gifted personalised necklace from a loved one or grabbing those sparkly earrings online “just because” sets benchmarks for memorable celebration moments. We should celebrate all the wins – not just the big wins either. Got through a big day without falling into a heap on the floor? That’s a win. Fell onto the floor because it was a big day? Thank goodness there was the floor – so that’s a win too.
Whatever win it is – no matter how big or small – if it matters to you, don’t let it go by unrecognised. Be proud of yourself – and treat yourself.
An empty lantern has no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly
Every piece of jewellery we own has a memory attached to it.
That great night when we went out and everyone saw our big dangly earrings sparkle under the disco ball. Designing that special personalised necklace for mum on Mother’s Day and all the anticipation for the moment she opens the box and sees it. The tennis bracelet everyone comments on because it twinkles so beautifully.
The engagement ring our boyfriend presents when they propose, the earrings, necklace and bracelet we wear with the wedding ring that slides onto our finger on our special day.
Jewellery marks special moments and experiences every time we buy them – and pop them on.
All my jewellery has stories
– Eva Green
Because it’s your favourite
The reason to treat yourself can be as simple as finding that holy grail: the perfect piece that goes with anything.
A plain black suit goes from basic to wow with the perfect sparkly pendant. A sweetheart neckline pops with the right dangly earrings, or the staple white tshirt and jeans goes next level with the right tennis bracelet and statement cocktail ring.
It’s not just wearing the same piece over and over – it’s an investment that becomes your unique signature.
Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside
– Coco Chanel
Feeling down? That’s ok. Humans always want to feel connected by being accepted and understood. A pair of sparkly earrings, that shiny necklace, your favourite wrist twinkles or that bright ring will motivate us to turn that frown upside down – even if’s just for a moment. Sparkly jewellery always lifts the doom and gloom, as a reminder no matter how dark, the light will always shines bright and lead the way.
It’s very easy to feel unnoticed and unappreciated by everyone around us, but you can depend on you to never overlook yourself and accept yourself simply by saying “I choose me” – and the bright happy jewellery to remind you to shine.
Inner beauty is what truly brings light to this world: our immense capacity for kindness, compassion, humility, and honesty are our greatest most beautiful gems. Jewellery amplifies our inner shine for the world to enjoy. Sparkles have the power for instant change and charge – where age, occupation and our postcode doesn’t matter. So we need to know about the jewellery mistakes we make and avoid the extra costs on our communities or the earth, without also impacting on our health and wallets.
Save time, money and your jewellery following these little steps to see your jewellery always sparkling brightly. The MYJS Guide: Jewellery Mistakes To Stop Making. You’re welcome.
We love our bling. Bling makes us human.
What we wear sends a message and tells our story. Our jewellery are coded symbols, central to the unique ability of human symbolic communication. Our jewellery is an indication of status — available, married, affianced, leader, part of a fraternity, sisterhood or tribe.
Here at My Jewellery Story, we consider jewellery self-care – a reminder we deserve to shine. And wearing sparkly jewellery is a luxury – like a 2-hour bubble bath or adding that shiny trinket to add pop to our sweats or office wardrobe.
They all do wonders for our mind and soul while bringing out the best of ourselves.
You don’t have to be rich to sparkle
Misunderstanding the materials your jewellery is made from
The source of materials used in our jewellery can impact our communities, environment – and our health. If a piece is sparkly and shiny in colour, this doesn’t always mean it’s made using quality craftsmanship, from the best materials or under the best conditions.
Cheap jewellery products sourced from people working in poor conditions and shoddy workmanship using inferior materials and design results in a poor-quality cheap nickel or lead jewellery products.
Our jewellery choice does not have to cost our family, community, the environment or our health.
These are the questions to ask when we buy our jewellery:
🚨 Does the piece list the materials it’s made from? 🚨❓ Is it clear what type of gemstones they are and where they’re sourced from? 🚨 Do the gems come from war zones? 🚨 Is the earth mined in obtaining these stones?
❌ Nickel and lead irritates the owner’s ears or skin and loses value through wear while quickly becoming outdated.
💖 A great jewellery brand clearly states its materials and gemstones, whether lab grown, simulated or nickel- or lead-free.
The time is always right to do what is always right
Not changing up your everyday jewellery
It’s easy to get into the habit of wearing the same jewellery day in, day out. We don’t have to be boring – we deserve better.
As seasons change, so do the days – not to mention our moods. We are an ever-evolving creature, and we deserve to invest in ourselves on the daily. This means shaking things up and being creative about who we are and how we express this.
💖 Experiment. Choose versatile pieces to extend your wardrobe.
💖 Dress to the occasion, as well as your facial structure, skin, hair and eye shades and your outfit, from silhouettes to symmetry, colour, patterns, necklines, sleeves and styles.
💖 Wearing the same jewellery every day means those pieces will need regular cleaning with a gentle bath of warm soapy water every 2 weeks.
💖 Take jewellery off when swimming, showering and going to bed as this causes damage.
💖 Change your jewellery up to add instant sparkle to each day while maintaining their quality and freshness.
The person who doesn’t make mistakes is the person who doesn’t learn
Not cleaning your jewellery
Just as your clothes need to be cleaned, so do your sparkles. Not cleaning your jewellery regularly – if at all – means your pieces will get grimy and become tarnished, losing their lovely colour, lustre and quality. Your jewellery has been designed to bring you joy. Let’s keep them that way.
❌ Avoid harsh chemicals – especially any cleaning products, perfumes and alcohol.
❌ In the new era of hand hygiene, go easy on the sanitiser and handwashing with your rings. Take your rings off before you sanitise or wash your hands (just don’t leave them behind!)
💖 With the change of seasons four times a year, schedule in a good jewellery clean of your most important pieces.
💖 If you have regular favourites, a good rub with a cleaning or polishing cloth every week or once a fortnight works wonders – and it’s easy.
Get distracted by shiny things
Wearing jewellery while being active
No ifs or buts: wearing necklaces, bracelets or dangly earrings while actively working, working out, swimming or showering is damaging. Too much perspiration, moisture or water will definitely dim the sparkle on your sparkles.
If – like you – your jewellery is hard at work or partied all night, then the perspiration will seep into the materials leaving them dirty while extinguishing their shine.
💖 Get into the routine of removing your jewellery before washing the dishes, bathing, and showering.
💖 Leave rings behind when doing chores, projects or gardening around the house. The damage can be irreversible, or worse – you could cause some harm to yourself if they get caught on anything or lose them.
💖 When swimming, showering or doing the dishes, it’s easy to dull their sparkle, or worse – lose your pieces. No matter how organic and kind to your body and the environment they are, the chemical residue from detergents, soaps, shampoos and conditioners affects your jewellery.
💖 When it comes to working out, jumping into the pool or heading to the beach, leave your good pieces at home and stick to unfussy jewellery – like studs and huggies – but make sure a good clean is scheduled in to wipe away any build-up of residue and perspiration.
❌ Swimming in chlorine pools and spas weakens gold and discolours silver and gemstones. The sand from the beach with the salty sea dulls gems and erodes metals. And nobody wants that.
Good thing jewellery works for every reason
Not looking after your jewellery
When we are not wearing our jewellery, we need to think of safety and storage.
Because our jewellery is so fine and petite with lots of little detachable pieces and bits and bobs, we always need to keep our sparkles out of reach of children.
💖 Store jewellery in a closed jewellery box, jewellery roll, a special covered and padded container or pouches.
💖 Clasp necklaces when you take them off. This helps them from getting all jumbled or tangled up. Picking at tangled chains is not really a fun job (unless you are OCD and find joy in that kind of thing). If necklace tangles still happen on the daily, hanging them from a jewellery tree or peg will prevent those pesky snarls.
💖 When storing jewellery on a necklace tree, make sure to clean regularly so they don’t collect dust.
❌ Don’t wear dangly sparkly jewellery around children – because curiosity, glitter and little clutching hands makes My Jewellery Story something something.
❌ Don’t store your jewellery collection in a humid, moist area such as bathrooms, or around extreme change in temperatures, such as the kitchen or directly in the sun or exposed to air. Our pieces will suffer from expanding in temperatures, tarnish or get dusty.
❌ Our sparkles are not water babies. If they do get wet, dry with a clean, soft cloth as soon as you can to avoid discolouring and icky build ups.
❌ Avoid jewellery from rubbing against each other, gems or other hard surfaces, causing damage, scratches and scuff marks. Scuffing doesn’t look great on our shoes let along our sparkles.
❌ Avoid harsh chemicals and alcohols – especially any cleaning products, soaps, perfumes and sanitisers.
💖 Take off your jewellery while cooking and cleaning.
💖 Always spray your hairspray, lotions and perfume before popping your jewellery on. This includes putting your ring on after washing your hands and sanitising.
💖 When washing hands, don’t forget your ring on the washing basin. Pretty, sparkly rings are eye-catching and alluring – especially when left behind in public bathrooms.
We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents
Not knowing where your jewellery comes from
Caring about the communities supporting our love for shiny things is crucial in the decisions we make when buying our pretty baubles, because we should be buying from business owners, creatives, designers and craftspeople.
These are the questions we need to ask ourselves when we buy our jewellery:
🚨 Do you know where in the world the pieces are made?
🚨 Are the working conditions ethical?
🚨Are the gems ethically sourced or do they come from war zones?
🚨 Is the earth mined in obtaining these stones?
💖 Supporting independent artists and creatives in the design and craftsmanship of jewellery means a great piece can be well designed and economically priced.
💖 Supporting local business is great for the community, while pieces from small scale manufacturing jewellers with a great reputation – just like us – means a better investment for buyers.
💖 Knowledge is power. The source of materials used in our jewellery impacts us, our communities and environment. If we truly care, paying attention, looking deeper and doing the research means we make better jewellery choices – without costing the earth or our health.
If you don’t know, jewellery is the answer
Buying cheap jewellery
The price tag of high-end jewellery might not always easily be within reach of our wallets – but it is possible to have beautifully designed timeless sparkly jewellery that lasts.
❌ Cheap jewellery products sourced from people working in poor conditions and shoddy workmanship using inferior materials and design results in a poor-quality cheap nickel or lead jewellery products.
❌ Cheap jewellery offers a world of sparkle while leaving behind black or green marks and irritating our skin.
💖 Avoiding cheap nickel or lead jewellery is a better investment because quality designed and crafted pieces lasts longer and look better.
💖 Make the conscious decision to buy well designed jewellery made from materials that aren’t harmful to our health, community or environment.
Be free, not cheap
Wearing jewellery that doesn’t suit you
Jewellery is essential to the everyday. We wear jewellery to complement the colour and style of an outfit for the ultimate polished look. We imbue jewellery with special powers to make us feel confident and happy. Jewellery takes a formal look to the next level, adding pop to our plain, monochrome, neutral or basic outfits. Jewellery is the timeless classic accessory reflecting our mood, personality and style.
To find the ubiquitous pieces versatile enough to segue from day into night, from the office to happy hour or for the most special of occasions (even if a glass of wine over the kitchen sink is the special occasion) without stealing the entire show, is to lay your hands on the holy grail — but it is possible.
❌ Bad jewellery cheapens an outfit or turns a simple look into a graceless one. They can make your work clothes look unprofessional or leave your stunning dress looking unfinished.
💖 Know yourself so you can express yourself
💖 Dress to the occasion, the season or your mood.
💖 Understand your facial structure, skin, hair and eye shades so you’ve got the right piece that highlight and set these features to stunning.
💖 Accessorise to you outfit, and think about the silhouette, symmetry, colour, pattern, necklines, sleeves and style.
💖 Choosing your jewellery is all about creating a balanced look to turn heads wherever you go. And you deserve to shine at every opportunity.
Life is better when you are covered in octagon cut jewellery
The cut of a gem defines their sparkle ability. A gem’s flawless, crisp shine depends on the number of facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, facets work as tiny mirrors and cut to maximise the gemstone’s ability to draw in and reflect the light. The gem is more brilliant and sparkly as a result.
Welcome to the subtle shine of the ultramodern octagon cut.
Pieces of eight
Bella Hadid rocks it. Beyonce said yes to it, and Kim K flaunts it: With a contemporary edge, the classic grace and understated elegance of the Octagon Cut has emerged to overtake the more traditional cuts and jewellery pieces.
The unconventional design of octagon cut jewellery puts on a colourful show of understated sparkle. The strong, bold, sleek look leans towards minimalists and vintage fans who still love a pop of shine. Similarly to the emerald cut, the octagon cut works with the step cut approach where rectangular facets go up into the crown – the upper part of the cut stone – and down into the pavilion – the lower half of the cut stone. This cut offers a large table facet to showcase the stone’s colour and clarity for a strikingly understated twinkle.
If you cut corners, you just go around in circles
Developed more than a century ago, the octagon cut intended to get the most out of emeralds. With its abilities to showcase the exceptional clarity and colour of gems, octagon cut amethysts quickly became fashionable, with the modern cut applied across other coloured gemstones and crystals including Topaz and Citrine.
Symbolic for rebirth and resurrection, the octagon is a reference to the bonds of family and life. It is the vehicle for good health and fortune.
The Octagon Cut stands out as a more unconventional cut for the modern generation of lovers keen for unique coloured gemstones over traditional diamonds.
I’m not a success. I’m a sensation
And as we become more environmentally conscious about the products we support, coloured non-mined crystals, gemstones and natural pearls and stones are the ethical go-to over the more commonplace diamond.
Whereas the more cliched round brilliant cut ferociously showcases a diamond’s sparkle, the octagon cut presents every colourful gemstone beautifully – and uniquely. Stand out for all the right reasons with the octagon cut.
The world isn’t just black or white. It’s not strictly silver or gold either. There is also rose gold.
Rose gold – also known as pink gold – is beautiful, soft and feminine. Its subtle colour complements all skin tones, adding a glow to the blush tones of your skin while offering timeless elegance for every occasion. With its soft pink hue, it’s an excellent choice to stand out and versatile and simple enough to work with everything. The pink-toned metal of rose gold is romantic and modern all at once, projecting a stylish elegant appeal.
While yellow gold and cool silver will always rule the scene, rose gold creates distinctive jewellery moments. Welcome to the MYJS Style Guide To Rose Gold Jewellery.
Gold Rosé sil vous plait
Accessorising to silver and gold have been our go-to metals for so long. As a newer addition to the metal family, stepping into the world of rose gold jewellery allows the pink-toned pieces to add simple flair to your look for timeless elegance.
A metal blend of yellow gold with copper and silver alloys, the blend gives gold more strength and durability. The more copper, the greater the pink tinge for that classic minimalist look. The metal was introduced by the Russian royal family in the early 1800s with Carl Faberge wanting to create a blush metal tone for his elaborate Faberge royal egg artworks.
Rose gold is all about making a subtle statement. Symbolic to whimsy, elegance and endearment, its soft rosy colour identifies with love and romance, while its gold composition showcases timeless elegance and luxury. Rose gold is incredibly versatile for multiple settings with a durability suitable for everyday wear. Working across casual to professional and formal occasions, the unique look also suits every skin tone, hair hue, gemstone and colour.
Mixed metals will always trend, so mixing your rose gold in with your usual silver, gold or platinum is always in-fashun. Layer up rose gold necklaces with silver or white necklaces for a casual contrasting look.
Stay rose gold
Rose gold jewellery and gemstones are made for each other – particularly warm and cool stones where the warm rose hue creates a stylish, vintage feel.
From pink to blue, red, purple and clear gemstones, the warmth of rose gold is an easy pairing.
Pink or red gemstones particularly look amazing in rose gold settings, where the transition from the rose hues are easy on the eye.
For added drama, dark gemstones such as black and purple becomes chic and stark for an highly distinctive yet understated look.
Soft and charming, rose gold works well with a broad spectrum of colours, nudes and neutrals. The pink shade particularly adds sparkle and depth to white, beige, cream, sandy pinks, nude and browns.
For a bold statement, gray and navy are uplifted by rose gold for stylish sophistication, while the sheer contrast of rose gold jewellery with a black outfit is incredibly arresting.
For a light professional style, yellow, aqua, sky blue, mint or teal are also stunning with rose gold accessories. Floral patterns pop with rose gold while pairing to geometric patterns makes for a big statement.
The dusty rose trend is great with modern, stripped-back edgy looks such as black or white fitted open-collared shirts, skinny black jeans and ankle boots with buckles.
For the office, small accents such as stud earrings or a cuff adds a pop of flair to your workwear without taking over.
Luxurious and opulent, rose gold also fits formal occasions beautifully for an understated yet dramatic look.
Forever trendy, classic and never going out of style, pearls, with their unique look and elegance, are the epitome of femininity’s fragile beauty. There’s something enchanting about the luminous gems of the sea where their allure captures the imagination differently to other sparkly crystals. Pearls are unique. As natural, organic gems, pearls lean on timeless and minimalism where their unlikeness transcends all trends to complement every skin tone, hair colour and eye colour. Welcome to the MYJS Modern Day Style Guide To Pearls.
Who rules the world? Girls with pearls
The shimmery organic gemstone has been beloved through countless eras and across a bevy of icons from Cleopatra, our own Queen Elizabeth II, Coco Chanel and Elizabeth Taylor. Pearls represents natural beauty. As the latest on-trend style with Rhianna, Harry Styles to Zendaya and Beyonce, pearls are the classic accessory. As the birthstone for June, pearls are a modern statement piece. From whimsical necklaces to studs, drop earrings, clusters, bracelets and rings, pearls are always appropriate.
Clutch your pearls
Pearls have seen a resurgence in popularity with Millennials as a sustainability statement. These organic gemstones have a distinctive look that’s easy to play with other gems and metals, and a timeless, affordable addition to our jewellery box.
They can be a classic reserved for special occasions and formal events. As a go-to choice, pearls elevate the everyday of jeans and a tailored shirt for a cool, edgy look.

We can also take our blazer to the next level for a bold and exuberant sophistication Play around with different strands, styling with either formal or smart-casual shirts for extra zhush and a fun lift. While pearls can be utilised for the everyday, preserve them from an active lifestyle such as working out, sunbathing or swimming.
Pearls of fabulous
Fun and edgy
While pearls are undeniably classic, they can be reworked retro style paired to a leather jacket or all-black outfit. While they are delicate, the bold focus on the pearl in dark colour blocking allows for a contemporary and stylish edge.
A single strand of pearls with a pair of studs and an LBD delivers timeless class and elegance. For all the drama, add multiple layers in different sizes – especially with V Necks or when going strapless.
Why wear one string when you can wear two?
– Coco Chanel
Sleek and minimalist
Find joy in the purity of pearls. Elegant and discreet, they offer a sleek polished look for the office or a night out as a modern-day fashionista.
Wear with neutral outfits, turtlenecks or colour-block looks for the pearl’s natural sheen to stand out as simple and impactful statement pieces.
Tis the season to jingle, deck the halls and make merry. The party season has descended, and it means digging into our wardrobes for all the festive cheer we can wear.
Great holiday outfits depend on two things: the clothes and the jewellery that completes them. From adding festive cheer to your Xmas day dress or standing out in an LBD, holiday jewellery is more complicated from your standard everyday sparkle. The holiday season is the time to go big. Drag out those pieces from your jewellery box, dust them off and let them shine full and vibrant again. Welcome to the MYJS Style Guide To Christmas Party Jewellery.
Holiday mode: on
Holiday jewellery is colourful, flashy and statement making.
Need a holiday injection but can’t get one? Just pop on your holiday jewels to make it feel like a party any day of the week.
Party-worthy jewellery makes you shine. Great statement pieces will amplify your star power for eye-catching glamour – you’ll be stopped by everyone asking, “where did you get those sparkles?”
Let’s make plans – I have cute jewellery to show off
Stylish statement earrings
A great pair of sparkly earrings frame our face with a dash of shine, drawing attention to our eyes.
For fun, feminine and flirty, dangling chandelier cluster earrings – clear or colourful – are a vibrant standout. Go for big in volume but opt for lightweight and supple in design
What happens under the mistletoe stays under the mistletoe
As the perfect party accessory, statement necklaces add a dose of sparkle to the day – and goes with everything, because it’s all in the attitude.
Plunging or V necklines love drop pendants to draw attention to your breast assets.
Frost your wrist with the brilliance of sparkles designed to stand out in its simple edgy minimalism. With classic design and popular appeal, tennis bracelet are the ideal all-occasion jewellery.
Christmas is the time to go big or go home. Go for bold with a defining signature arm piece worn with off-the-shoulder or sleeveless. All-black? A pop of colour from an audacious bangle presents a fearless edge. Follow in the footsteps of Wonder Woman and dare to wear one on each wrist.
Colourful cocktail rings
Gemstone rings are attention-grabbing and reflect your adventurous personality. Brandish that flamboyant, pronounced piece of jewellery from your fingers. When it comes to rings, there are no limits on size.
Ring in the holidays
The art of keeping it simple
Your everyday style gets to reflect your personal style, but holiday jewellery should take you out of your comfort zone and encourage you to go big and bold. Holiday jewellery is next level sparkle, so the real dilemma will be finding the balance between enough sparkle to pop without ending up competing with the Christmas tree.
If we’re paring back our gems for understated minimal accessories – particularly when worn with flashy patterns – we need to make each piece count.
A set of classic jewellery like the MYJS Trinity Collection goes a long way during the party season. The mixed metals of gold, rhodium and rose gold necklace, bracelet, earrings with a fun cocktail ring keeps the festive spirit alive.
If the gems are taking centre stage, pair to a neutral outfit or opt for daring silhouettes for a bold, sleek statement. Festive red lippy is the ultimate finishing touch – because it’s all about the next step….
Collect moments – not things
Make an impact
The holidays are about celebration. We’re expressing gratitude for what we have and what we can be, taking the party season to make each moment matter. Our shine deserves to be at its most vibrant and fullest while appreciating the wondrous lives we live.
It’s our time to shine – so turn up the dial to full illumination. Put on that sparkly jewellery and take out those dazzling outfits.
During holiday season, we have all the variety that sits between deliciously predictable to the piquant unexpected. We can keep to theme, revolving around the usually stunning clear, green or red pieces. Or forget holiday colours entirely – and just hit high wattage with pink, amethyst, violet or topaz. Want left-of-centre? Orange and yellows will always be stunning.
Anything glittery such as satin, sequin is the epitome of fun for this time of year. Pare back on the accessories for that flirty balance.
Bright shiny gems can’t compete against busy patterns such as brash Christmas jumpers. Pops of sparkle such as studs and delicate chains offer a balance with the right touch of shine and none of the overwhelm/
Fear the full sparkle or sequin look? Neutral outfits finished with glittering necklace, earrings, ring and bracelets still mean an eye-catching look. Opt for a main focal point that adds to the allure – such as pendants to bring out that plunging neckline, glittering earrings to draw attention to the face, sleek bracelets to highlight those slim wrists or the perfect cocktail ring to show off that manicure. Just get out there and illuminate the world.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful
– Norman Vincent Peale
What type of party is it?
With the calendar filling up fast, the ‘what to wear’ struggle is real.
The occasion calls for the outfit, and the right holiday jewellery will fit every holiday outfit. From black-tie events to intimate dinner parties or casual drinking soirees, the right jewellery adds all the sparkle for a lasting impression.
The holiday office party
When it comes to the office, it’s smart to keep it slightly formal. A conservative little black or red dress can’t go wrong. Add the right jewellery, the simple all-purpose little black/red dress goes from blah to bam! A statement necklace paired to subtle earrings like studs or minimal drop earrings finished with a single bracelet or cuff will twinkle in all the right places while keeping your look professionally trendy.
Christmas with the in-laws
The day to enjoy the comforts of floating dresses or skirts or jeans with the added edge of a great tailored shirt. Comfort can be chic.
Sparkly earrings and a statement necklace adds the right glamour and shine. For added civility, a pearl necklace and earrings are always appropriate.
Hitting the clubs to see in the New Year? Chandelier Cluster Earrings and Hoops say “make way” for a sexy minimalist look.
Heading to a Xmas house party with friends? Go edgy, with dangling earrings bringing all the festive cheer.

Her soul was topaz – you could see it in her eyes
The history of topaz
First used in Sanskrit as ‘topas’ or ‘tapaz’ for fire and derived from Egyptian island ‘Topazios’ – now St Johns Island or Zabargad Island near the Red Sea – topaz traditionally referred to any yellow gemstones.
In Ancient Egypt, topaz was believed to capture the glow of Sun-God and giver of life Ra, protecting the wearer from injuries while endowing them with great strength. Its golden hues were also linked with the Sun-God Apollo.
In India, the word ‘topaz’ stood for heat, and Hindus believed it a scared stone for its protective, live-giving abilities. In Africa, healing rituals with topaz established communion with the spirit.
Topaz is mentioned in the bible with high-priest Aaron, as well as Revelations as one of the stones of the apocalypse. Ancient Romans credited topaz with preventing sickness, dispelling bad omens, healing poor vision and calming anger, promoting topaz as the symbol for uprightness and virtue.
Initially sourced from Zabargad during ancient times, it is now believed the yellow stones of this island was actually the lemon gemstone Citrine. The first genuine topaz was found in Germany in 1737. Worn by royalty and clergy during the middle ages through to the 1800s, topaz became more affordable and available once large deposits were discovered. During the 1800s, the Ural Mountains of Russia and Brazil became the first large sources of topaz. Today, South America remains the largest producer of topaz, where it is also mined in Australia, Germany, Italy, Scotland, Norway, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Japan, Nigeria and the US.
Life. Beauty not included. You must create your own
The psychology of topaz
Enduring the mythology of magical and healing powers, topaz has always been a powerful gemstone, boosting the virtues of leadership and love. As the gem for the third eye, topaz represents intuition and love, directly influencing our heart, eyes and insight for inner peace. The lively fire, clarity, colours and hardness of topaz recognises truth and wisdom to transform negative energy into positive, boosting happy and invigorating vibrations for an abundance of vitality and healing power.
The stone for love, truth and good fortune, wearing topaz boosts confidence to achieve goals and dispel cowardice while attracting fidelity and friendship. Renowned for its healing properties, topaz cures the heated blood of fevers and regulates the heart, stemming bleeding to ease inflammations, discomfort and pain for good digestion while promoting glandular health. As the gem for the heart, topaz releases anger and surrenders to forgiveness, bringing balance to turbulent emotions and cooling our blood from rage and anger to calm and peace. This is the gemstone for treating depression and alleviating fears to heal shock and trauma while bringing balance to our emotions. Topaz facilitates happy living, boosting our emotional nourishment for inner fulfilment, and higher productivity for inner peace.
As the gem for insight and protection, topaz enhances our eyesight, curing weak vision while protecting against the evil eye. Boosting our mental powers by calming tempers, topaz sharpens our wit while boosting honesty, self-control and self-realisation. This makes topaz ideal for aiding in good communications, its restorative powers boosting our confidence for problem-solving situations while expressing our thoughts and emotions.
The stone for inner peace, topaz aids with meditation and sleep, working against insomnia and nightmares while protecting against heart disease.
Its inner fire protecting against fire and accidents, Topaz counteracts greed, envy, intrigue, disease, injury and negative magic for calm, joy, generosity wisdom and good health as the ideal gemstone protecting travellers and inspiring creativity
Topaz and fashion
As the colour symbolising freedom, joy, happiness and hope, warm honey-gold topaz brings sunshine to our wardrobe. In Asian cultures, yellow represents luxury, nobility, bravery and wealth. The imperial colour for China, warm yellow was associated with the earth element, standing for power, loyalty and prosperity.
Yellow loves medium to olive skin tones but regardless of your skin colour, always expect to stand out traffic: topaz is massively energetic and fun, bringing out your bright, dynamic self.
Representative to summer, yellow topaz works best as a punctuation or exclamation to your look.
While it is synonymous to cowardice, it still takes guts to wear warm honey yellow, so wear sparingly rather than as an everyday canvas.
Yellow is particularly perfect as an accent to spice up your outfit, instantly bringing eye-catching warmth to a black outfit or minimal white, beige, tan, grey or denim look.
Immerse yourself in a life that moves you
Topaz fashion jewellery
While topaz was hugely popular with royalty, the rise of diamonds in the 1950s took away attention from this warm honey gem with stars like Joan Crawford and Greta Garbo keeping the love for the stone alive. Lady Gaga’s recent foray into the yellow stone has revived interest in the rare hue – particularly as we enter the age of fully embracing our uniqueness
Its many different combinations make topaz an easy match for our wardrobe. Topaz is striking against dark hair and skin tones. Wear with warm colours such as red, brown, tan or purple for a rich, seasonal look. Boost green, dark blue or black with topaz pieces for immediate sparkle.
If wearing a topaz ring, go for maximum bling. As the ultimate symbol for affluence and a ring fit for a queen, topaz looks best on the index fingers for a lux-casual look.
November’s Birthstone: Topaz
Light up November with Topaz, the stone for the third-eye to boost love, happiness and wisdom for truth and inner peace. Renown for its calming, creativity and healing energies, illuminate the universe to bring peace and health to the mind, body and soul. Bask in your creative power and wit for dynamic energies aiding in problem solving and inspiring love and friendship.

As an opal changes its colours and its fire to match the nature of a day, so do I
– John Steinbeck
As the queen of the gems, the fragile opal has a complex personality and history. The symbolism of opals is as much of a kaleidoscope as the gemstone’s unique play of colour. The talisman of luck and magic, opal celebrates the birth month of October and 14 years of marriage.
As a mineral from millions of tiny amorphous silica spheres, the opal is distinctive with markings, its colourful flecks presenting a rainbow iridescent play of colours to showcase different patterns and hues in the light. The unique opalescence offers rainbow like flashes in a kaleidoscope of hues, and the symbolism attached to it makes it an intriguing and arresting gem. The opal takes on many shapes and hues, the rainbow colours of blue, red, yellow, green and purple exotic, poetic descriptions.
Join us as we deep dive into the wonderful world of iridescent opulence with Over The Rainbow: Opal Jewellery Fashion.
There are worlds in an opal
The history of opals
The luminous opal can be traced as far back to the Sanskrit word Upala meaning “precious stone”. It would evolve into the Greek derivative Opallis and Roman Opalus meaning “change of colour”.
In Greek mythology, opals were considered the tears of Zeus after the defeat of the titans. The opal was believed to give the gift of prophecy while protecting from disease.
The Indian virgin Goddess of the Rainbow was turned to opal by the Mother Goddess to protect her against the romantic advances of Indian Gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Persians believed the stones fell from the sky, imbued by the flashes of lighting that bought them to earth.
Following the plague, the gem became associated with the Black Death where stories stirred across Europe of a patient’s opal burning with colour losing its brilliance after their death. This narrative would be taken on by Sir Walter Scott’s novel Anne of Geuerstein.
Tragic main character Lady Hermoine is accused as a demoness and dying after a drop of holy water fell onto her opal, destroying its colour. The novel demonised the opal, with the opal market crashing within months of the book’s release.
The discovery of black opal from New South Wales in the 1870s some 50 years later would revive the market. Prince Albert would design many pieces for Queen Victoria with the Queen gifting her daughters the gems for their wedding.
The earth writes its memoir in each opal
The psychology of opals
The inner colours of opal attract the forces for good luck and protection, representing hope, innocence and purity, faithfulness and loyalty.
The opal has the reputation of amplifying traits for transformation. A stone for love and passion, opals release our inhibitions of seduction, desire and eroticism for sexual harmony.
As the protective gem for dangerous places, opals stand for justice and harmony, its inner play of dancing fire sparking dynamic creativity.
Symbolic to the eye, the opal is commonly associated with the imagination and the future. Bestowing the gift of unfailing vision, the stone is worn as a cure to eye diseases with powers to boost the mind and memory while detoxifying our kidneys and liver to improve our immunity. Opals seep into our energies, cleansing negativity from our mind, spirit, emotions and body.
Said to possess magical properties, the opal is the protector of thieves and spies, rendering the wearer invisible – as a sparklier version of Harry’s Cloak of Invisibility. The darkness and depth of opals set in wands increased the powers of magicians and sorcerers.
Opals and fashion
Featuring with fashion houses such as Balmain, Dior and Cartier and others across the last decade, opals seamlessly fit into our everyday collection while bringing a magical charm to our look.
While iridescence and reticulation seems to fit better in the world of party decorations, rulers, discos and rave gear, shine will always have its moment. Iridescence celebrates all things that shimmer and glow. The pearly, glossy, shimmery unicorn colour story is playful, sleek and edgy – all at once. While we are unlikely to add full length reticulated coats and entire iridescent outfits to our everyday wardrobe, splashes of the sheen will add instant intrigue to our style.
Opals love fashion, blending in easily to our everyday look with an edge of intrigue. Simultaneously bold and delicate, opals instantly add special flair with its subtle flashing hues and unique shine. The simplicity and minimalism of opals especially love the office and special occasions, elevating casual style easily. Use its distinctive rainbow colours to brighten up a minimal look of black, greys or neutrals.
Some opali carry such a play within them that they equal the deepest and richest colours of painters. Others…simulate the flaming fire of burning sulphur and even the bright blaze of burning oil
Opal fashion jewellery
Opals have been worn by some of the world’s most famous historical figures. From Holy Roman Emperors to Empress Josephine, Victoria, Elizabeth II, Dutch Maxima, Danish Crown Princess Mary and even Hawaiian King Kalakaua, opals have sparkled in crowns, ears and necks. Even Mark Antony wanted to gift a Slovakian opal to Cleopatra.
Light opals are striking against dark hair and skin tones while darker opals stand out on lighter – silver and opal especially bring out the best in blue eyes.
Opal’s unique simplicity works best with clean designs. Statement drop opal earrings will immediately draw attention to the face. A statement opal pendent will highlight the neckline.
Want office sophistication? Silver with White Opal or gold with the rainbow-like iridescence of AB Aurora Borealis offers a feminine pearly shimmer.
Opal adores blonde hair, its properties said to preserve the pure colour by adding magical lustre to pale locks. Medieval Germans and Scandinavians were renown for wearing European opals set in their hair pins.
Perfect for anniversaries and birthdays, opals highlight our entire look and add a dash of sophistication and elegance. Self-confidence and the right attitude opens every door; as the stone boosting happiness, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence, opal jewellery will always take your look to the next level, adding layers of style and colour.

The history of earrings
The ear is the avenue to the heart
Earlobes are a natural spot on our bodies to embellish, begging for something shiny glittering on there. Across human history, earrings have been a popular body decoration, iconic to cultural identity, group connections or status.
From the Ancient Sumerians in 2500 CE to Early Crete, Cyprus, Egypt, Greeks and Romans, hoops, twisted wire, beads and pendants in gold, silver, bronze and other natural materials, have been a significant part of human culture.
They have been worn as good luck charms by soldiers into battle, by slaves to signify ownership and by the rich to demonstrate wealth. They have had a deep religious significance and also been denounced as immoral.
Earrings are popular with all ages and cultural backgrounds. And with today’s range of materials, they can be worn by everyone.
The way to keep traditions alive is through earrings
The Earring Stud is popular for a reason – they go with everything. They add an easy touch of sparkle, no matter the occasion – be it gym or poolside.
Timeless and ultra-chic, stud earrings are gorgeous to look at and easy to wear. While they are small, they do a lot with so little. Their effortless fashion makes them an essential part of our jewellery collection.
Petite and compact, they are the most popular style for everyday wear. As the definition of minimal chic and the unsung heroes of luxury, studs are the adored jewellery staple, adding stunning symmetry to every outfit.

– Brad Goreski
When it comes to earring fashion, Hoops are the quintessential piece of jewellery, transcending trends, time, cultures, stereotypes and personal style. The hoop earring is truly ubiquitous.
Hoops are an essential to every jewellery box with their neutral tone and the perfect match to every outfit. From intricate designs to featuring semi-precious stones, gems, pendants and cutouts, hoops can dress up, down, from jeans to a gown: hoop earrings go with everything.
You’re not quite dressed until a pair of hoops add swagger
But hoops have evolved: as the perfect blend of studs and hoops, Huggies add shape to your face and outfit and strike the perfect balance of being small enough to wear comfortably all day, but big enough for the right attention. Chunkier than conventional hoops, huggies still offer a statement hoop look to compliment a look rather than stand out as the focal piece of the outfit.
Perfect for working out, exercise, change rooms or chilling poolside, the snug huggie is less likely to snag on clothes, equipment and hair.
Incredibly versatile, huggies are also the perfect home to sweet dangling charms, pearls and sparkly baubles for a playfulness on personality. Petite, understated and perfect for the modern woman-on-the-go, huggies strike the perfect balance of being small enough to wear comfortably all day, and bold enough to get noticed.

Chandeliers are marvels of drop-dead showiness, the jewellery of architecture
– Peter York
As a style classic, they light up the room in a flash. From the Middle East and across India to ancient Greeks to medieval Anglo Saxons and across colonial Spain and Britain, chandelier earrings know how to produce that wow factor. Unlike their consistent sister drop earring, chandeliers flare out towards the bottom gaining more width as they fall for a dramatic eye-catching look.
Their versatility means they are equally at home at a coffee shop and on the runway, pairing just as beautifully to elegant gowns as they do with casual outfits such a tshirt and jeans. As the most transformative of all earrings, chandelier earrings instantly transform a dressed down look into a stunner.

Cluster together like stars
– Henry Miller
A classic cluster is round or oval featuring a round of gemstones as a halo around a central gem. Modern clusters are more likely to use a mix of geometric shapes and can be either uniform or a mix of gemstones. They provide the perfect finishing touch and classic understated elegance to day and evening wear.
Cluster earrings add to a power look with drama for polish, and especially pop against conventional dark looks while working beautifully with bright colours. We can count on our cluster earrings to serve as the instant confidence booster.

The symbol for heaven, celestial blue attracts wise judgement and sacred blessings, representing innocence, loyalty, good health and the revered – it is “sacré blue!” as the au courant French would admonish.
The hue for peace of mind, serenity and prosperity, the dazzling cerulean of Sapphire is the cast of divinity and royalty, inspiring luck, loyalty, happiness and love for flowing, peaceful energy.
Highly valued across centuries, sapphires have dominated human culture.
The Greeks cherished sapphires when seeking answers from the oracle while inscribing sapphires with the head of Zeus, as the god of the heavens claiming his pinnacle of power. Tibetan Buddhists and Hindus sought the gemstone for spiritual enlightenment to facilitate their devotion to prayer and meditation.
Hebrew kings cherished sapphire’s powers of protection in their ecclesiastical rings – King Solomon’s seal was an inscribed sapphire as a testament to his power over the spirits in the sky, earth and underworld. The colour for the virgin Madonna, Helen of Troy was also reputed to own a large star sapphire – which may have added to her enormous charm. Persian kings wore sapphires as protection from malice and bad health while sailors believed sapphires offered protection for a safe and prosperous passage.
Reflecting both the sea and the sky, embrace open spaces, freedom and intuition with the vitality of health and hope.
As the reflective hue for deep waters, the intense ultramarine is versatile and flattering on every skin tone and hair colour. Sapphire is brilliant – and knows it.
Ringed with the azure world, [s]he stands

We are reminded of who we are and what we stand for. We can wear them as symbols of stepping out into the world for a new experience or the next step or our journey, reminding us while we’ve had stumbling blocks and difficulties, we will nevertheless endure and persist.
Believe the little voice inside of you that knows you are made for more – the voice inside of you that believes in you
– Nikki Banas
Essentially, tags hold information that describes what it is attached to. We can appreciate a good tag at any age: babies are hypnotised by them. Give them a toy, they’ll clutch it by the tag.
We appreciate tags because they label all parts of life, from brand name labels on our shirt to the price of a mug or even a medical condition. We even tag our pets. An ID tag and name plate pendants have an incredibly fearless aesthetic, with the space to honour, celebrate or capture special moments, words or dates.
They’re fashionable, functional and incredibly expressive. Dressed down with an open-necked shirt, a great tshirt or a blazer makes for a great statement piece. Name plate pendant necklaces and initials discs are always a steppingstone to a great conversation.
No one gets to decide who you are – except for you
– Nikki Banas
ID tag, initials discs, name plate pendant history
Their design first emerged during the Civil War when soldiers would create their own “name discs” or “soldier pins” out of wood or old coins. While they were haphazardly used during the European wars, the US government understood the value of these tags very quickly, with the armed forces officially bringing them into standard use from 1906.
By the 1920s, all combat and Navy troops were allocated ID tags made from brass, aluminium or nickel-copper alloy. The familiar rectangular shape emerged from WW2 to include their name, blood type, social security number and religion. Today, while the archetypal double corrosion-resistant sheet-steel tags are standard military issue, there are also commemorative, symbolic ID tags available in sterling silver, yellow or white gold and platinum too.
Own your identity. Love who you are in the world
– Nyle DiMarco
ID tag, initials discs, name plate pendant fashion
During the 1990s, military inspirations including ID pendant tags hit fashion in a big way. After ending up in second-hand shops, disposals and military shops, they emerged with the popularity of ex-army tshirts, Docs and other combat shoes. Crossing to hip hop, they’ve since become firmly entrenched in streetwear.
While ID tags have always been a popular accessory for men, they have evolved into initials circle discs and rectangular or heart name plates; their bold, heroic charm with space for all sorts of personal details appealing easily to everyone.
Designed to be level with a shirt pocket, they can also be worn a little longer or shorter according to our neckline. Tag plate pendant are also fantastic with layering, adding a daring splash to the accompanying lines of necklaces.
They’re a durable, versatile accessory perfect for “anytime”, complementing rather than overpowering our style. ID tag plate pendants necklaces take iconic to the next level of zhush, style and personal expression – because names are timeless – and everyone has one.
Coco Chanel said “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”
My Jewellery Story says to put one or two (or even three) more pieces of jewellery on. Because with My Jewellery Story, too much is never enough. Be unique, be bold and express yourself – especially through the power of statement jewellery.
Welcome to The Rules Of Statement Jewellery – and rock the most out of your bold, unique and unapologetically dramatic pieces. From being dressed up or down, our statement jewellery will always be fashionably modern – and fierce. Just let your statement piece do all the talking.
The most profound statements are said in silence
– Lynn Johnson
1. Statement jewellery always has something to say
We all have a voice. Our statement is our purpose. Our statement inspires us to take action, to express facts, ideas and beliefs. They require courage and are unique to us. Statements do not ask questions, make requests or give commands. They simply are.
As our statements define who we are and where we stand, Statement Jewellery is designed to boldly and uniquely express our personality while adding extra colour and sparkle to our individual style.
When it comes to making an entrance, a statement is mandatory. Statement jewellery is always about standing out. Statement pieces are not quiet things – we can’t expect to fade into the background with glittery, colourful striking pieces. Statements make you free.
The everyday can be elevated simply with the addition of statement pieces. Grabbing your 2pm coffee is the opportunity to show off that dramatic cocktail ring. Flick your hair back to shine the spotlight on those dangly sparkly earrings. Or open a few buttons to allow your chunky necklace to accidentally on purpose keep peeping out.
It’s always your time – and you can do big, effortlessly.
Be a voice, not an echo
2. Pick the centrepiece
Wherever you wear your statement jewellery is where the eye is drawn, so start with the focal point: whether it’s an interesting necklace, stunning earrings or a stack of bracelets, the eye will be drawn immediately to this.
Choose one piece as the centrepiece of your accessories – and build from there. Alternatively, layer lots of pieces – such as necklaces – for a whole lot of interesting detail and sparkle.
If it’s all about the statement necklace, you need to think about your neckline (more on that later).
If earrings are your base statement jewellery piece, keep your hairstyle simple. Up dos will draw all the attention to your face – and those ear lobes. Big sparkly earrings are guaranteed showstoppers, so stop traffic with a flash of your head.
If you opt for both necklace and earrings, keep it proportioned: a statement necklace is ideal with classic studs or paid bold earrings to a subtle necklace. Your arm and finger candy will simply be the icing on the cake.
You mustn’t be afraid to sparkle a little brighter
3. Choose your outfit
Ultimately, the key to pairing your statement jewellery to your outfit is balance for an overall striking look. They should work together rather than them competing against each other.
When it comes to our statement jewellery, our outfits tend to fade in the background.
Coordinate your outfit colour, sleeve lengths and necklines, then style your hair around this.
If you want all the focus on your statement piece, tone down the colours of your outfit.
Scooped necklines, v-necks and off the shoulder beg for interesting big and bold necklaces or pendants.
Strapless styles bring focus to your neck, arms and collar bones, so chunky colourful designs or pops of gems will enhance these areas while adding glamour and glitz to the overall look.
Structured high necklines such as turtlenecks or halters love dangling statement earrings.
Sleeveless outfits love stacked or chunky bracelets and cuffs.
If there are neckline details such as bows, large flowers, lace or jewelled embellishments, this will impact on the pieces you choose to wear. When it’s busy, statement earrings always stand out.
Casual clothing always works a treat with statement jewellery. A statement necklace or cocktail ring adds an unexpected charge to relaxed style.
Of course, statement pieces always work well with dressy and formal looks. An elegant black dress with a bold eye-catching necklace or a dramatic pair of earrings is always stylish.
Overall, keep the outfit simple so the jewellery does all the talking. Let your statement piece take centre stage without competing against complex patterns, styles or silhouettes. In saying that: Love the look of that leopard print with that huge chunky golden chain and pendant? Go for it. We can make the rules – and we can also break them.
Fashion is about owning whatever you’re wearing, regardless of it’s a high fashion statement or not
– Marc Jacobs
Our statement pieces stand out and attract attention as soon as people approach us.
We can create symmetry and let the outfit to do all the work – just pair to stunning drop earrings to draw attention to the face. Or our statement pieces can also work higher from our neck, peeking out from a partly open shirt.
If you opt for both necklace and earrings keep the sparkle in proportion to each other: bold earrings work with a subtle necklace or your statement necklace with classic studs.
Add subtle bracelets and rings to complement – rather than detract – from the drama.
If you do decide it must be about the drama, then don’t hold back – the bigger, the bolder, the better.
Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create
– Jana Kingsford
5. Choose your arm candy
Always keep arm jewellery bold and interesting.
Dressing bare arms with stacked or chunky bracelets or cuffs work as statement pieces on their own. If necklace and earrings are big, either go all out with your bracelets or take a subtle step back.
Charm bracelets are always a talking point and statements in themselves with the mementos they represent. Got some twinkling chimes going on in the wrist area with a stack of bracelets? Make sure those bracelets sing.
Every piece of jewellery tells a story
– Gem Hunt
6. Round out with rings
Elizabeth Taylor always knew a good cocktail ring when she wore one, because statement rings never go out of style.
Keep those nails manicured and sleeves (if any) rolled back to nicely showcase that bauble – just make sure your nail colour complement your ring rather than clash with it. Feel like going overboard? Wear more than one statement ring on one hand – it’s all the rage.
Or wear a bunch of stacking rings on different fingers for all the sparkle and interest.
The ring always believes the finger lives for it
– Malcolm de Chazal
7. Know the rules, then break them
Statement jewellery is designed to stand out from the crowd. They’re great to wear with a simple outfit, dress up a boring one or add that next level of zhush for formal occasions. Statement pieces add great versatility to your wardrobe, to change the look of the clothes you love wearing over and over again. It’s all about adding the drama – and having fun.
Choosing and wearing the right statement pieces for you are a challenge, but with plenty of thought, practice and the right attitude, you’ll always boldly and uniquely shine.
Know the rules well – so you know how to break them. If you feel confident about what works for you, don’t’ let the rules stop you: make up your own.
Dare to go big, bold and unapologetically dramatic. Because when you make a statement, it’s all in the attitude. Behave as though you deserve the spotlight – because guess what? You actually do.
Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist
Have you ever wondered about the meaning of jewellery symbols?
As the most transformative pieces to our look, jewellery has incredible power. Since the dawn of time, we’ve always turned to our power talismans of prayer beads, amulets, bracelets and rings for healing, long life and protection. Jewellery is our most powerful armour. We wear it to represent our faith and culture, or for luck and protection against bad spirits and energies.
A sign is a message sent to you by the universe
– Laura Lynne Jackson
Symbols have always been an integral part of our communication and interactions. We see and use them every day where they play a powerful role in how we express ourselves and communicate to each other. From channelling ideas and information through a picture or pattern, symbols are a unifying sign infused with meaning. Symbols of love, nature, spirituality and power can bind us together with a common icon, language or belief.
As the timeless classic accessory reflecting our mood, personality and style, we imbue our jewellery with special influence to boost our confidence and joy. Learn the significant meanings and symbols in jewellery to take our story from cliched to the extraordinary.
Symbols are powerful, because they are the visible signs of invisible realities
– Saint Augustine
As the universal symbol for love, the Heart represents the seat of emotion, affection, unity and romance. First used during the Middle Ages as a symbol for Jesus, the heart became much more popular after the 1600s through the launch of Valentine’s Day. From 💖 emojis to honouring St Valentine, the heart is the most recognisable icon for expressing compassion, understanding and romantic love,
From heart lockets to heart shaped rings, charms, tags or open interlocking pendants, heart jewellery fits every phase of life.
The sideways 8 Infinity symbol of no beginning or end has been a love metaphor throughout ancient Greece, Rome, India and Tibet. Iconic for perfection, Infinity stands for balance, regeneration, focus, harmony, peace and oneness as the eternal nature of energy and the universe.
Other love symbols include Cupid’s bow and arrow, the Ladybird, Flowers– especially the Lotus Flower and Rose– in addition to the Egyptian Ankh, Heart Chakra, Seashells and the iconic Irish Claddagh, with Diamonds and Rose Quartz the gems for romance.
Where there is love, there is jewellery
Nature’s beauty is organic, yet simultaneously complex and simple, bold and delicate; influencing humans, artists and designers for centuries. We are inspired by nature from the clothes we wear to the settings we surround ourselves in, so it is no wonder Trees, Leaves, Flowers, Seashells and Animals feature so heavily in our lives – and jewellery.
The Tree of Life is an ancient iconic symbol, serving as a connection to our ancestors while representing physical and spiritual transformation. As powerful symbols of growth and resurrection for the Garden of Eden, life and death, family, and the home of the Gods, the Tree of Life is a classic icon for strength and empowerment.
Delicate Leaf motifs are ideal for whimsical boho styles, with the Irish Four-Leaf Clover particularly imbued with good luck and fortune. Floral symbols such as the Lotus Flower is symbolic to rebirth and purity with Roses eternal icons for love. Doves represent peace and fidelity, with Peacocks emblematic to spiritual growth, With Ladybirds a sign for love, Butterflies are symbolic to beauty, elegance and joy for great change and endurance.
As keepers of secrets, Cats stand out as the guardians of the otherworld for a journey into self-discovery, mystery and freedom, while Elephants remain the symbol for strength, majesty and power to guide us in our journey of patience and wisdom. Overall, animal jewellery correlates with fertility and vitality, shaped by the distinctive nature of each creature.
Pearls bring a chic freshness for a modern feel to the classics. With their warm lustre a magical gem of the moon and the ocean, they are the silent uniform for strong women and the aristocratic badge of fashion-forward men. Pearls are the pinnacle of feminine power. Associated with wealth, purity, wisdom and peace, pearls have a calming, protective impact.
There is no better designer than nature
– Alexander McQueen
The human spirit always aims for perfection, the divine and ultimate knowledge. As a celebration of humanity and our transcendence into the universe, celestial symbols such as the Moon, Stars, our Zodiac Signs and Birthstones can be understated, sophisticated, edgy and delicate.
Make waves, the moon does it all the time
Playing a major role in moods and motivation. the lunar power of the Moon is emblematic of transformation, evolution and permanence, as the symbol for female empowerment.
Stars are associated with the souls of gods for positive messages, inspiration, wishes and new beginnings to travellers looking for good luck and clarity while fulfilling ambitions. Wishing upon a star means reaching for our dreams, believing stars will lead us to our destiny and never lead us astray
We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle
– Marilyn Monroe
Just as we look to the stars, we also look to our Astrological Signs to connect us to our cosmic heritage. Since Ancient Babylonia, priests have been able to use the constellations to divine our fate and predict our future. Even today, wearing our zodiac signs guides us to our destiny while unleashing our personal power. We can always guarantee a boost of confidence, luck and protection with the timeless feel and vintage appeal of our unique zodiac symbols.
As the precious gems marking the month of our birth, our Birthstones hold unique meanings rooted in ancient myths and religions. Imbued with special powers to bring love, luck or special powers and meanings, birthstones are personal and special.
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why
– Mark Twain
Ancient religions, myths and cultures have translated across time with icons of strength and force. Despite traversing time and locations, these symbols still manage to find something in common, designed to represent dynamic energy and power.
From our Initials to Keys, the Cross, Hamsa Hand, Evil Eye and whimsical shapes of Circles, Triangles and Squares, power jewellery is designed to reinforce our fortitude and bolster our courage.
Tap into your magic
We all have an identity: Initial Jewellery captures a customisable edge of fashion with a classic approach. Timeless while representing a unique, modern take to personal style – particularly for edgy streetwear – our initials are ideal for every occasion.
The rich symbolism bestowed by Key pendants from many cultures makes them a versatile symbol for any occasion. Especially popular for coming of age at 21 as a sign of being responsible enough to receive the keys to the house, they are symbolic to new beginnings and excellent efforts. In the Far East, keys are seen as symbols of good luck, opening doors to physical, intellectual and spiritual prosperity while attracting all the riches of nature. Keys stand as a symbolic gesture for the great achievements of distinguished people while celebrating family milestones. Romantically, they can be a sign as the key to the heart.
As an ancient symbol, the Cross pendant is a visible sign of the Christian, Roman Catholic or personal faith. As an ancient sign dating beyond the Ancient Egyptians with the Ankh through to modern day Goths, the cross remains a sign of hope, fortitude and resilience in the face of adversity.
While the world changes, the cross stands firm
Easily identifiable by its open hand design, the Hamsa dates back centuries to Ancient North Africa and the Middle East. Used as a sign of protection against the evil eye of illness, misfortune and death, this sign stands for strength, power and blessings.
Similar to the Hamsa Hand, the Evil Eye is an ancient symbol of protection against illness, misfortune and death. Dating back centuries to Ancient Mesopotamia and even possibly the Neolithic Period across Asia and Latin America, the evil eye stands out as a stylish lucky charm.
Life is full of circles
The power of the Circle is ubiquitous, from the celestial bodies of the universe to the wheel and modern day logos of Google Chrome, Garnier, BMW and more. The circle represents the eternal, with neither an end or a beginning. From change of seasons to the cycles of life, the circle is a symbol for wholeness and divine unity, serving as protection and comfort, while standing out as the ultimate power symbol of femininity.
As the ancient symbols for the blade, chalice and water to the religious trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the three-sided Triangle is the dual aspiration for male force and female divinity with the power of three. As the holder of many different timeworn meanings, the triangle certainly stands for an edgy geometric statement while channelling our strength, vision and mystic power.
As the symbol for stability, expertise and trust, the Square creates a sense of equality and conformity. While the square harnesses masculine energy, the shape is handy as an impactful power symbol to boost effortless elegance and confidence.
Give a girl the right jewellery, and she can conquer the world
Give a girl the right jewellery, and she can conquer the world
How much is too much when it comes to work wear jewellery? Sparkles are wonderful and always bring a pop of joy to the day, but when is too much jewellery, too much in the workplace? Reinvent our work wardrobe by making what we already have work harder with a simple solution to our work wear woes. Welcome to the MYJS Style Guide To Jewellery For The Office.
Jewellery is simultaneously the most understated and powerful element to every outfit.
Modern jewellery designs allow for simple clean pieces to be worn casually and elegantly, segueing easily through the workplace to end of work drinks. But jewellery is also about making statements – just be sure that statement is appropriate to your workplace. In our professional world, it can be a precarious balance between work appropriate and a night out with the girls. We want our look to express who we are: a force to be reckoned with, and plenty of flair.
I get distracted by shiny things
Start the day
As you pop your jewellery on for the day ahead, always ask:
Will my jewellery distract me and others from my work?
At work, we should command rather than demand – and let our work do all the talking.
From clipping on hoops or throwing on chains and bracelets, jewellery guarantees instant polish for your work wardrobe – from the uniform to the standard business suit. Work is about not disrupting your everyday duties and working in safety and comfort – while still retaining your personality and style.
Bold accessories are a woman’s armour
Bad jewellery can cheapen an outfit or turn a simple look into a clumsy one. It can make you look unprofessional or worse, inappropriate. If you work in a creative workplace, you’re likely to be lucky enough to go large with as many sparkles as you can. If your workplace has a dress code, leave the gaudy, flashy pieces in your jewellery box.
❎ Avoid large gems, chandelier earrings, oversized statements pieces, chunky bracelets, blingy rings, loud jingling bangles, dangly earrings and massive brooches where they’ll distract from your professional look while also getting in the way
Most importantly, don’t be afraid to show your personality.
Surround yourself with sparkles, not negativity
If uniforms or business attire with blazers, work shirts and pulled back or up hair is the way of work-life, simple, understated, minimal and elegant never fails.
Since flashy statements are out for meetings and the workplace, classic and smart will always win.
Small pieces give the aura of stability and self-assurance without the need for calling attention to yourself.
Stick to the rule of three: choose three pieces so you don’t overdo the look – such as earrings, necklace and ring or bracelet or watch.
Neutral colours are your friend. Leave the neons and busy patterns and stay close to gold or silver metals with jewellery that is either understated or designed to add to your work clothes.
Classic gemstones easily add pops of colour to your outfit, so stick to diamonds, clear crystals and pearls for a subtle shine.
The MYJS Rules To Wearing Office Jewellery
✨ Less is more ✨ Keep it simple ✨ Stick to minimal ✨ Go miniature ✨ Stay modest ✨ Opt for the classics
Dare to be fearless
You can still manage to stand out and bring a little sparkle with you to work every day. Just add elegance with delicate pieces such as classic studs, drop earrings, a tennis bracelet or an elegant pendant.
If you’re active in the workplace, heavy and long necklaces can be awkward – if not dangerous.
❎ Avoid chunky statement necklaces and bold coloured gemstones.
✅ Opt for versatility – slim necklaces are elegant and easy to match to business outfits. Delicate, short gold chains fit in easily with a work-lifestyle. Have a long chain? Wrap it for a double chain reaction.
Pendants are a staple for the wardrobe with plain, minimal styles elevating your professional look. Simple yet effective, they look beautiful with smart casual looks and uniforms.
Personalised jewellery especially brings your individual style to the boardroom table, so add a charm, your initials, birthstone or a unique pendant to your work look. You are still you at work; your personalised pieces will still keep you looking interesting and professional.
Tap into your magic
While wearing earrings to work can be risky, choose wisely to frame your face for a subtle fashion statement.
As a simple and elegant choice, Studs are a fabulous feature to our business wardrobe.
Ideal for busy prints and patterns, studs will always elevate our uniform or suit without going overboard and transition nicely from the office to dinner parties or formal occasions without needing to change.
Just tie hair back or up for that subtle shine to stand out.
Ultra-chic and sophisticated, break the work earring rut with Drop Earrings. Stylish without being over-the-top, drop earrings perk up your everyday – and always have your back. Just stick to subtle and classic.
Jewellery is our favourite art
While Hoops can be a bit ho’ for the office, the next level of elegance and sophistication come with Huggies.
As the perfect blend of studs and hoops, Huggies add shape to your face and outfit and strike the perfect balance of being small enough to wear comfortably all day, but big enough for the right attention. With no uncomfortable hoops to push against your ear when you’re on the phone or catch in your hair and no lost earring backs, simply hinge your Huggies in, sit back and shine.
Hoops are great for a final touch to your outfit, but in the workplace, less is always more. As a playful option, opt for midi hoops for added edge and eternal class to frame your face for a delicate fashion statement. Stick to plain, thin styles and be sure to wear your hair up high or in a bun to and showcase those Midi hoops for a delicately fierce yet understated shine.
Wear a fabulous smile and great jewellery, and know that you are totally and utterly in control
– Donatella Versace
Lovely and feminine, Bracelets are an elegant subtle complement to your office wardrobe. But wearing more than one can be risky — from shaking hands to typing at your desk, the sound of multiple bangles can be distracting and loud.
Tennis Bracelets are ideal for the office with Cuff Bracelets an understated statement in strength.
Classy and delicate, stackable minimal rings will always fit the work bill nicely. Thin with minimal decoration and design, never say never to a subtle elegant ring stack.
Or keep it simple with understated gems such as a diamond or clear crystals on a simple ring.
❎ Avoid wearing more than one gemstone ring as it could be too much bling.
Want to go bold and show who is the boss b*tch in charge? A bold signet ring will sing. Just wear it fabulous – and with attitude.
Beauty is who you are. Jewellery is the icing on the cake
It’s been relatively easy to sink into a lovely induced state of comfortable activewear or sweatsuit rut. Have you ever wanted to replace tailored trousers and pant suits with track suits? Heels for slippers?
In this brave new world of online living and meetings, we still need to look like we dress the part. Psychologists love to remind us we are what we wear. As we virtually live online with colleagues and clients, a simple accessory switch can change our mindset and serve as a pleasing ritual to keep our days structured and peaceful. Thank goodness there’s jewellery to fit every occasion.
From zoom sessions with our colleagues to online client meetings and virtual conferences, sparkling on the screen is so easy. Welcome to the MYJS Style Guide To Virtual Meeting Flawlessness, and charting your onscreen look with all the joy of work-from-home comforts.
Top tips for every occasion
✨ Pick one statement piece and dress around it – be it a jacket, shirt or jewellery pieces.
✨ Play with innovative necklines and dazzling pieces from your ears, neck and wrists for power looks to see you through every virtual event.
✨ Pop on a bright lipstick for the icing on the cake.
✨ Keep your go-to baubles, Bella Earrings and a variety of lipsticks in your zoom space – and pop them on as you connect.
Keep calm and sparkle on
Let’s talk business
This is all about powerful communication without distracting from talking business. If you are what you wear, then using your screen for a power look will get you everywhere.
✨ Tailored jackets and blazers are instant visual tags for powerful communication where subtle colours will make you pop from the screen.
✨ Only have standard black, grey or dark? Add a bright top beneath – or don’t wear one at all for a plunging neckline.
✨ Layer dainty necklaces to accentuate the neckline of your jacket and shirt.
✨ Frost your wrist with bracelets – tennis bracelets have the maximum shine and all the elegance. Then fold back your sleeves to reveal a cuff that speaks smart business when your hands form temples to push your point.
Dare to be fearless
✨ Pair to studs – because studs mean business.
✨ Manicure those hands to showcase cocktail rings – stack them, alternate them, the more, the merrier. Sparkle with rings that spell success.
✨ Too much jewellery is never enough, and you only live once. Over accessorising online can be appropriate.
✨ As an essential to a business woman’s arsenal, bright red lipstick is an unapologetic statement and really makes sure your message is getting across – so keep your Mac Red Russian handy.
Life won’t sparkle unless you do
A bit of a cuppa or happy hour: the online edition can be just as much fun. This is the chance to express joy, so be the one to lead the pack and stand out from the screen.
✨ Keep your top simple and classic – all the better for your statement pieces to shine, shine shine.
✨ Occasions with the girls always call for flirty hoops – add an understated pendant to balance the style.
✨ Sparkly cocktail rings always flash nicely across the screen.
Spread the glitter
Finding your day filling up with catch-up zooms? Don’t forget, we deserve flawlessness at all hours. Be prepared – for everything and anything with a look that goes from your kitchen to your iPhone to the bus and your work desk.
✨ The classic shirt for a muted look works each and every time and also forms the base to layer your jewellery pieces.
✨ Opt for subtle yet striking earrings, delicate pendants and on-the-daily statement rings.
✨ Keep those lips refreshed and plump with gloss or lip balm – lipstick might be a bit too messy, but if you’re the fearless type, don’t let mess stop you.
Create your own sparkle. Be the sparkle
Screen for 1?
Is it looking like Netflix & Chill just for you? As Paris would say – s’living.
✨ Create the space to be fabulous, such as a candle-lit bubble bath; settling amongst cushions galore; from a chair draped with a plush throwover beside a bright window or your crazy plant lady balcony. It’s only you – and your trusty screen.
✨ Knits with lush necklines and drop earrings to match always does the trick.
✨ Or opt for silky robes – and leave on the drop earrings, statement necklace, layered bracelets with stackable sparkly rings for lush comforts
✨ Pair to decadent berry tea or a glass of bubbly for genuine divalicious delights. Add a pop of fabulous with wine charms.
✨ Just be careful with your ‘puter – liquids and lappy’s don’t always mix.

With our wide range of stud earrings, hoops, huggies, drop earrings, chains and charms – we’ve got something for everyone.
In the world of charm jewellery, more is more. Charms are symbolic, sentimental, collectible and fun as the jewellery equivalent of a photo album across the ages. We wear them for good luck and on special occasions. We wear them as memories of what has been and to say “I miss you”. We wear them to glow in the sunshine. Charms come to us through broken roads, impossible challenges and unforgettable moments.
Charms, talismanic jewellery and amulets have always been used to ward off evil and harness good luck as a container of magic powers. Charms can be traced as far as the Neolithic period, when bones, shells and wood were strung onto leather for elaborate bracelets and necklaces. From Ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire, charms began to identify the wearer as something special – whether part of a secret society or royalty.
Queen Victoria loved her jewellery – and especially her charms. She gave charms as gifts with Prince Albert designing charms for her birthdays. Albert’s gift of a bracelet to Queen Victoria in 1857 for the birth of their first child ended up housing nine charms for the birth of each child, with each charm a different colour and containing a lock of their hair.
Charm is more than beauty
As wearable memories, they can be added to necklaces, bracelets and earrings – and more. From Princess Kate to Elizabeth Taylor Bette Davis and even Justin Bieber, charms have all the power of delighting, attracting and fascinating us. Mariah loved them so much, she wrote her 2002 album Charmbracelet as a tribute to love, introspection, celebration and fun.
Charms have become a way to express our style, pay homage to our loved ones, celebrate special memories and zhush up our everyday.
From lockets to cutout charms, beads, flat charms and three-dimensional shapes, we can use single charms as memory markers or string together for a personal history of special people, places and times. While they’ve come and gone across the years in popularity, charms have never really gone out of style.
Nothing is more dangerous than a girl with charm
Charm jewellery fashion
As small trinkets with a single loop or hole at the top designed to attach to a ring, eyelet or hook, Charms can be worn wherever you go: on your keychain or even as a statement on your belt, bag or phone.
In the last decade, they’ve become entrenched in popular culture as necklaces and especially bracelets – from DIY at-home specials to luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton.
We use charms to tell the stories of our lives, showing them off to mark important occasions or places we’ve been.
Charms can be as kitschy or colourful and glamorous as we choose. They can add playful vibes to our outfits, a boho feel to our look as cheery jewels with crochet hats and bikinis or simply as our individual style. Charms always bring joy as a gift and as a treat.
A diamond or gem’s sparkle is determined by the shape it’s cut into. Gems possess a flawless, crisp shine from its facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, facets work as tiny mirrors, cut and arranged to maximise the diamond’s ability to draw in and reflect the light. This makes the gem more brilliant and sparkly than any other cuts and shapes.
Welcome to the Cushion Brilliant Cut.
Love is a fine cushion to rest upon
Ivanka rocks them. Eva Longoria flashes them. Nick Minaj wears them on her birthday. Cushion Cut gemstones are the classic favourite that never goes out of style.
Synonymous with royalty, the Cushion Cut combines a square or rectangle cut with rounded corners – just as a pillow. This has been a classic cut for the last two hundred years and one of the most popular engagement diamond shapes today.
Brilliance takes time
The Cushion Cut dates back to the earliest diamond cuts, through the modern-day cushion was inspired by the Old Mine Cut of the 1700s. During the 18th century, Brazil was the world’s diamond mining capital to maximise the carats from the rougher Brazilian diamonds that took less time to execute the cut. The Hope Diamond stands out as the most valuable cushion cut diamond of all time.
Simplicity is the key to brilliance
While the Cushion is similar to the Round Brilliant and Princess, the Cushion Cut presents a high level of brilliance and fire for a vintage look and feel that combines classic fashion with modern flair.
As a cheaper cut than the Round, Cushion still looks elegant and understated all at once while retaining a high level of shine. The design of the artful facets allows more light to flow through the gem.
Diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, zircon and man-made crystals feature Cushion Cut for all the style and dazzle. With the popularity of Round and Princess Cuts, the Cushion offers a more unique choice for flashing your gemstones where it’s all about a soft look with a lot of sparkle.
Studs are the perfect accessory for the modern woman who feels naked without an earring. They are the most popular style for everyday wear. As the definition of minimal chic and the unsung heroes of luxury, they are the adored jewellery staple, adding stunning symmetry to every outfit.
Versatile by design and suitable for all occasions, they are clean cut for classic looks for a put-together style. They are designed as a feature mounted onto post passing through the ear lobe and are a great base to your jewellery collection.
As a minimal style, they are subtle and blend well into a look without screaming for attention (we’re looking at you statement earrings).
Life isn’t perfect, but my studs can be
Petite and compact, studs lay snugly against the earlobe for subtle sparkle. They’re ideal for an active lifestyle, avoiding entanglement in hair, clothes and general living.
Studs have never gone out of fashion. With a rich past hailing from Asian to Egyptian and Roman Etruscan cultures across the ages, studs regained popularity in 1920s Art Deco though they evolved during the 1930s with a new clip back fitting replacing the old screw back. The new clip held them securely to the lobe without needing a piercing. This new stud and clip would be combined to hold a heavier stud or cluster statement earrings in place.
My stud is hotter than your coffee
Stud earring fashion
Timeless and ultra-chic, stud earrings are gorgeous to look at and easy to wear. While they are small, they do a lot with so little. Studs love all faces, from oval to heart-shaped or square-jawed. Their effortless fashion makes them an essential part of the everyday.
Popular stud earring styles are round or princess cut for intense sparkle, and readily available in square, triangle, teardrop, cushion and more.
From everyday delicate studs to statement climbers and large halo sets, stud earrings offer an array of interesting styles.
The classic stud can feature geometric shapes and designs, petite balls, pearls, hearts, knots or a gemstone. They are exactly what you want them to be. Designed to show off without stealing the show, stud earrings are understated classic style.
For a minimal, fuss-free look, studs are always appropriate. Studs always add a touch of sparkle to an outfit – you deserve to feel glamorous every day.
You’re not quite dressed until a pair of studs add sparkle
Ideal for shorter hair styles, tuck long hair behind the ears or go for a casual updo to keep hair back from the face for the ultimate showcase.
Versatile, simply designed, comfortable and easy-to-wear, ball, oval, star or heart studs are the perfect go-to.
The epitome of class, pearl studs cover formal shirts, adding effortless beauty and elegance to the everyday.
Designed for intense sparkle with minimum punch, round, cushion or teardop cut gemstones add a pop of vibrant colour to any look. Dress up a tee, jeans and cable-knit sweater or perfectly complement an elegant look.
Go next level without going over-the-top and pair a cluster, halo or bezel stud earring to a long gown for sleek style that stands to attention.
For added edge, pair asymmetrical, rectangle, triangle or geometric shapes and designs to leather jackets, blazers and designer jeans with cherry lips.
Hanging around in your silk PJs for a doona day? Pop on a pair for minimal style effort just because you can and it’s so easy. If JLO can wear silk PJs with hoops, we can also wear them with studs. Let them add the finishing touch to any outfit.
Grocery shopping? Date night? Zoom with the girls? Bubble bath? Mask-friendly? Tick, tick, tick, tick. Pop those stunners in and get on with your day.
Next time someone tells Bronx girls to take off their hoops, they can just say they’re dressing like a Congresswoman
– Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Nothing elevates your ear game like a pair of hoop earrings. Heralded by Rhianna and Zendaya on and off the red carpet, the style signature for JLO Jennifer Lopez and beloved by Alicia Keys and Ariana Grande, Hoop Earrings are empowering, symbolic to the circle of unity, infinity and wholeness.
As one of the oldest accessories in human existence, Hoop earrings have significant meanings in cultures around the world.
Since Nubia 2500 BCE, Ancient Africans, Greeks and Minoans, Egyptians, Romans, Assyrians, Persians, Caribbeans, from Latinos to Southern Californian Cholas, NY Bronx, Vietnamese Hmong women and India’s Gadaba tribe, once worn by emperors, kings and queens as a proclamation of social status (as in, my hoop earring is bigger than your hoop earring), Hoops are a statement for unity and strength – not to mention powerful earlobes.
Hoop earrings are empowering. Hoops stand out. Hoops are power symbols.
You’re not quite dressed until a pair of hoops add swagger
Hoop earring fashion
While fashions dictate our jewellery with large hair, headpieces and high collars, hoops have always persevered. 1920s updos with low-cut necklines, 1960s straight-hair and mod fashion, 1970 disco’s African and Latina renaissance and modern-day hip hop have kept hoop earring fashion alive and swinging. Hoops have gone so far as to be featured on Balenciaga, Versace and Marc Jacobs runways.
There’s a reason why hoop earrings are popular: they never go out of style. As a crucial accessory to your jewellery box, dressed up or down, they rock all the way from a walk in the park right to the red carpet. Hoops are all about attitude – fearless and without a care in the world.
The bigger the hoop, the bigger the love
– Old Chola saying
Hoop earrings are always about adding edge. They’re for the bold, demanding and commanding attention. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore a bold red lip with striking gold hoops when she took her oath of office for the ultimate cultural statement.
As the visual cue to who’s the real bossb’tch around here, just remember to keep hair pulled back and a bare neckline for best results. And make sure those hoops move with fearless swagger.

Hoop earring fashion
When it comes to earring fashion, hoops are the quintessential piece of jewellery, transcending trends, time, cultures, stereotypes and personal style. The hoop earring is truly ubiquitous.
Hoop are an essential to every jewellery box with their neutral tone and the perfect match to every outfit. From intricate designs and twisted braids to featuring semi-precious stones, gems, pendants and cutouts, hoops can dress up, or dress down; from jeans to a gown: hoop earrings go with everything.
As the latest must-have on-trend fashion accessory for single or multiple piercings, Huggies are the perfect go-to for every occasion, season or reason. Huggies are great to keep a toned down look for effortless elegance.
Huggie earrings are small hoop earrings designed to hug the earlobe. Chunkier than conventional hoops, huggies still offer a statement hoop look to compliment a look rather than stand out as the focal piece of the outfit. The lobe-hugging mini hoops are perfect for wearing solo or stacked along the ear in second or third piercings with solid metals or dotted in pavé.
Perfect for working out, exercise, change rooms or chilling poolside, the snug huggie is less likely to snag on clothes, equipment and hair.
Incredibly versatile, huggies are also the perfect home to sweet dangling charms, pearls and sparkly baubles for a playfulness on personality. Petite, understated and perfect for the modern woman-on-the-go, huggies strike the perfect balance of being small enough to wear comfortably all day, and bold enough to get noticed.
The midi hoop
Welcome to the ultimate classic hoop.
Is it a stud? Is it a hoop?
As hoops with a stud backing, midi hoops are designed for effortless everyday wear. As the perfect in-between with bold and understated, the weightlessness of midi hoops is the everyday classic.
Wear solo for minimal chic or layer them for a return to the 90s glam of Sade and Salt n Pepa.
Add midi hoops to your professional work wardrobe for added edge – just leave the bold geometric designs in your jewellery box.
When the hoop earrings come on, the boss babe comes out
The maxi hoop
Size matters. Big, bold and beautiful, maxi hoops complement every face shape and many hair styles.
Oversized hoops are universally flattering, adding instant drama to your look. Worn as symbols of resistance and strength dating back to Cleopatra and Nefertiti, big halo hoops have maintained their symbol for womanhood, culture and pride.
The infamous ho hoop with a reputation for being distracting, unprofessional and even ghetto are a dramatic style statement for an edgy modern look. These are the earrings for a night on the town or that hot date. Let your hair down and go wild.
If you kiss my neck, I’m not responsible for what happens next
As both the most understated and most powerful elements of your outfit, necklaces are the most transformative pieces in your jewellery box. From chunky chains to bold statement pieces or delicate strands, necklaces take plain tshirts and little black dresses to new heights. With the right necklace, go from hot-mess or basic b’tch to looking like you’ve got your sh’t together (even if that isn’t 120% the truth).
Since the dawn of time, from prayer beads to amulets, we’ve always turned to power jewellery for protection and healing – as reminders of how tough we really are and to feel protected, strong and comforted.
Jewellery is a woman’s most powerful armour to keep bad juju at bay while showcasing our most disarming weapon: our take-charge charm and our indefatigable energy to get the job done. As powerful talismans, necklaces are power statements for long life and protection, and used to overcome difficulties for self-realisation.
The perfect necklace is like a mythological creature: something discussed in stories and impossible to find. But, there are can be the elusive unicorns for our jewellery box.
Life isn’t perfect, but your necklace can be
It starts with your daily habits and personal style.
If you’re active, heavy and long necklaces can be awkward, if not potentially dangerous. Simple, short gold chains with small pendants fit in easily with an active lifestyle.
If you’re one with nature, peace and zen, all necklace styles are open to you. Long strands or large statement necklaces will always work.
Regardless of your activity, tucking your necklace away inside your shirt helps without disrupting your everyday.
When a woman wants to look festive, she should add some shine, sheen or sparkle to her outfit, like a metallic clutch, an embellished shoe or a blingy statement necklace
– Clinton Kelly
Love to follow trends? Or do you have a consistent aesthetic?
If you’re a fashion maven, love change and new fads, choose necklaces that will always complement the latest fashion fads, such as bold statement pieces, weighty chains and large pendants
For classic timeless style, delicate chains, pearls and simple pendants are eternal winners.
Start with colour
Colour attracts attention and creates an emotional connection. Colour reflects our mood and confidence and is the first thing people see – with instant impact. Colour is incredibly personal.
Match your necklace with bold accessories, such as your purse, heels or belt.
For colourful, bold prints and busy patterns, monochromatic necklaces – such as black or white pearl crystals, simple gold chains and dainty pendants – are ideal.
With minimalist looks, bold statement necklaces and pendants alway elevate a potentially bland look to an exciting one.
Gold and geometrical necklaces will always look great with a blazer or jacket, while neon necklaces contrast nicely with denim.
A statement necklace glams up any outfit without feeling like too much
– Tracy Reese
A necklace creates focus around your face as it draws attention. Aim for harmony between your necklace and neckline by following or enhancing the shape of your top’s neckline.
Big statement necklaces deserve to be the focal point of your outfit, looking best with solid-colored clothing and simple necklines, such as strapless, v-neck, scoop and off-the-shoulder.
Shorter necklaces look good with any top where the neckline or bodice is the focal point. If a shirt or dress has a neckline or includes fancy details, add interest with statement earrings to match.
Collared shirts can go either formal or casual. For a classy look, choose a necklace that falls right at the collar. Button up all the way with the necklace flashing just beneath the collar. For a more casual style, choose a slightly longer necklace and leave a couple of top buttons undone allowing the necklace to shine nicely against your skin.
For V-necks, keep your necklace falling before the V, rather than below it.
Wear a fabulous smile and great jewellery; and know you are totally and utterly in control
– Donatella Versace
Layered necklaces can be bold, or a delicate and elegant statement, depending on your pieces and how you stack them.
While one long chain necklace can give the flash you’re looking for, multilayered options add high impact,
Thin to thick, lightweight to weighty, chain necklaces are layerable. Edgy, dressy and sculptured or casual and understated, the chain necklace is always timeless – and ideal for layering.
The beauty of layering is there are infinite options of lengths, symbols and chain styles for different looks with your favourite pieces. Whether they’re piled up or perfectly spaced, layering with chain necklaces is easy – one heavier chain keeps them from getting too tangled.
Layering necklaces is a classic way to dressing up an outfit, but don’t forget the layering rules:
💖 When layering more than 2 necklaces, layer in an odd number of multiples 💖 Layer chains in varying lengths 💖 Layer contrasting styles and metals, such as pearls with pavé, geometric shapes or different weights and textured chains for interest
The freedom in designing your own pieces means imbuing your necklace game with special powers unique only to you, for a beautiful piece made just for you – nothing mass produced using cheap, unhealthy materials.
From your birthstone to initials, zodiac sign, power symbol, words or dates, personalised jewellery is the ultimate reminder in times of crisis to dig deep – and remember who you are. As your very own signature piece, inject luxury to your necklace game to wear your personalised necklace year in, year out.
Choice by choice, moment by moment, I build the necklace of my day, stringing together the choices that form artful living.
The tides have turned, pearls are so not passé: these luminescent gems are back in vogue. As the latest on-trend style from Harry Styles to Zendaya, Bella Hadid and Beyonce, pearls are the classic fashion accessory.
And as the birthstone for June, pearls remain the modern statement piece.
Clutch your pearls
Synonymous to icons and royalty, they are opulent and eclectic – but always luxurious with a unique charm. From as long ago as 2300 BC, pearls were presented as royal gifts and seen as the ultimate status symbol. In 1BC, Julius Caesar passed a law limiting pearls only to the ruling class.
With an abundance of pearls readily available from the Persian Gulf, Arabs believed pearls were the tears of Gods while the ancient Greeks believed they were the tears of Aphrodite. The Pearly Gates refer to heaven’s gates with Hindi god Krishna bestowing pearls to his wife for their wedding. In Ancient China, pearls were a symbol of purity, while knights during the Crusades wore them into battle as amulets of protection.
The passion for pearls launched Spanish armadas to the Mexican gulf and the British to Australia. They are nature’s greatest miracles: starting out as an irritant – such as a particle of shell or parasite – to the oyster, the pearl’s formation comes from the oyster secreting nacre to build up and form the famous moon white gemstone. With cultured pearls, freshwater pearls, lucite and glass coming onboard as modern additions to pearl fashion across the last century, pearls always retain their relevance.
The Moon In Her Chariot Of Pearl
The silent uniform for strong women and the aristocratic badge of fashion-forward men, these gemstones effortlessly stand between tradition and evolution. As the pinnacle of feminine power, the pearl is the protector, attracting good luck and wealth.
Timeless yet modern, reclaim pearls for their moment in the sun. Because we should always be two things: classy and fabulous. The world is your oyster, and you are the pearl: so be the pearl, the queen of gems and the gem of all queens.
Pearls are all about attitude and how you pair them.
No Grit. No Pearl.
Pearl Fashion Jewellery
Feel fresh – with an elegance boost to zhush up the everyday. As symbols of purity, perfection and long life with all the lustre of the moon, layer, mismatch and personalise your unique pearl style.
From classically minimal to over the top baroque, wear pearls everyday to upgrade your monochromatic game or polish up your look: because pearls are always appropriate. Go edgy with dark pearls – just enough to hint at danger.
Pearls go on and on . . . on everything. With a fierce history as a status symbol, pearls are never passé. Classic and feminine, pearls deliver for modern takes and traditional styles.
Who runs the world? Girls with pearls
June’s birthstone: Pearl
Light up June with Pearls, the magical gem of the moon and the ocean. Born from the earth’s waters through heavens powers with serene perfection and purity, these soft white lustrous orbs are treasures beyond measure. You’re a Pearl dear, the daughter of the moon, and the goddess of love from the sea. Embrace the light of the moon and shine lustrously, darling, shine.

Jewellery has the power to be the one little thing that makes you feel unique

Huggies are incredibly versatile, as the next level of elegance and sophistication evolving from the bolder hoop. Designed for a subtle commanding showcase of your personality, huggies reflect your dependability and take-charge attitude of leaving no loose strings, inspiring people to look to you for direction and guidance.
We appreciate sparkling our way through the day with fabulous glittery statement clusters dangling from our ears. But just like our ever changing moods, there are outfits we want to pare back from making an over -the-top glittery statement without skimping on the sparkle: mini hoops with earring charms are the answer.
From simple and minimal styles to bright, bold pieces or adding charms, Huggie earrings are the perfect go-to for any event or occasion. For extra personality, huggies offer the perfect home for sweet dangling charms, pearls and sparkly baubles with earrings charms.
Adorn your ears with a selection of pea-size pearls or stunning crystals for a modern yet understated feel that adds fun to the everyday. They’re great companions for Zoom meetings or trips to the park or cafe, transforming basic sweaters and tees into elevated looks.
Whether at the office or at lunch with the girls, huggies strike the perfect balance of being small enough to wear comfortably all day, but big enough to get noticed. Rock the perfect piece for everyday wear.
Traditionally, bold sparkly earrings are meant for after hours only. But breaking the rules is fun – and leads to unique, fabulous looks. Bringing out the flashy ear twinkles from 9 to 5 is the new modern and absolutely appropriate. Shine all hours, with the MYJS Guide To Daytime Sparkly Earrings.
The MYJS Mantra To Wear Sparkly Earrings By
💖 Make every moment an occasion
💖 Keep it glamour to go
💖 Always steal the spotlight
Statement jewellery is bold and unique – and designed for commanding attention. Wearing statement jewellery is all about standing out. Slipping on some sparkles is a demonstration of adventure, courage and fearlessness – the very qualities we need every hour of the day and not just for after 5pm.
And the easiest way to flaunt the rules with maximum impact is by popping on a pair of sparkly ear jewels. We buy our beautiful sparkly earrings for a reason – to shine. We deserve to get the most out of our bold, unique and unapologetically dramatic pieces.
Rise and sparkle
From the office to casual lunches, shopping or cavorting in the park, adding a pair of sparkly earrings takes our tailored shirt and suit, tee and jeans or wrap-around dress to the next level of fierce. With sparkly earrings, we can dare to be big and bold.
Forget the rules. Be it for during the day or After 5, sparkle statement earrings are an expression of attitude – because a fabulous attitude is everything.
If you are going to throw the rules out of the office window, it’s about balance: match the right daytime look with your sparkles – and build around them.
If you want to shine, you must burn first
Sparkle and shimmer are always breathtaking. Bold jewels look especially fresh with the simplest of wardrobe staples. Designed to pack a punch, they can be elegant, a little wild and complicated. When adding a bracelet, necklace and rings, either go all out fabulous big and sparkly or balance the glitz with subtle, delicate and minimal.
Sparkly earrings are designed to draw attention to your face and add personality to your outfit – from a plain sweater to a business suit. Dare to add an element of the unexpected and level up casual monochrome, all black or denim. To make sure they’re show stoppers, wear with a low, messy bun, a high ponytail or a low up-do.
Drop earrings add a flattering radiance to your eyes and never look out of line during daylight. As a subtle powerful statement of dynamic force, bring a drop of sparkle to the everyday, whether business, casual, boho, smart, dressy – whatever. Just choose what makes you feel fearless.
Nothing can dim the light which shines from within
Fabulous sparkly earrings always bring the wow factor and drama to your look. Fashion-forward and shoulder-grazing statement earrings can be counted on to bring the drama, accenting the facial features, drawing attention straight to the face – they scream “diva” as you enter the room.
Sparkly statement earrings add to a powerful business woman look with a bit more drama for polish.
Cluster earrings especially pop against the conventional dark business look. Want it all? Cluster earrings work beautifully with bright colours. From brilliant reds, yellows and neons, go all the way to over-the-top-fabulousness with cluster earrings bringing a glammy balance to the look.
Sparkly earrings were never designed to follow the rules. They’re all about boldly expressing your personality, creating a focal point for your outfit while injecting a thrill into your look.
Don’t settle for mediocrity: embrace the power of sparkle and illuminate your shine to the universe.
Brand new to the MYJS Personalised Family Collection, MYJS Personalised Brilliance celebrates the spirit of family connections, defined by sleek curves and contours as a modern touch to your look – with pops of sparkle.
Relish in the aesthetic and craftsmanship of modern style with our new personalised interlocking circle designs.
Things look better when you put them in a circle
Symbolic of the soul, circles represent wholeness, totality, eternity and timelessness for original perfection.
Interlocking circles take these familial connections to the next level, uniting the many into one to represent bringing elements together and sharing bonds. They are symbolic to the joining of two souls, from the intersection of the human self and their inner guiding spirit to relationships between people in love, friends, parents, and child in celebration of lifetime bonds.
Life comes full circle
As icons of strength and unity for the interconnectedness of life, interlocking circles can have many significant meanings:
Christianity’s The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit as the three holy entities join to form the supreme entity of God.
In the Celtic culture, triple interlocked circles symbolise the joining of the earth, sky, and ocean. In relationships, they are symbols of love, fidelity, and friends or the bond between three friends or siblings.
My Jewellery Story recreates family and connection through stylish design and luxury. Designed for the fabulous everyday woman, MYJS Personalised Brilliance are an effortless way to wear – or gift – meaningful, designer jewellery.
The MYJS design of entwined rings allow for personalised words or dates to be cast into sterling silver. Each piece is uniquely handcrafted by our skilled artisans and then polished and finished to perfection. Striking interlocking circles are meticulously crafted in the finest 925 sterling silver, and finished in rhodium, 16k gold or rose gold then set with cubic zirconia pave.
The refined shapes unite as a delicate duo or trio of engraved tags to capture meaningful names, special dates or meaningful sentiments. They are designed to express love, and the love shared; whether the love between mother and child, siblings, best friends or greatest loves; forever and an eternity.
Interlocking circles are perfect for your
Dazzle them with brilliance
In creating the MYJS Personalised Interlocking Circles, we wanted to honour the legacy of family and connection, while elevating and modernising the design. These pieces are perfect for special occasions – but they can also be worn every day as a celebration of you and someone special.
Claim your own statement design with a modern personalised touch for the everyday.
Brilliance is one part talent, two parts wisdom and three parts passion
We have adored and adorned our pets since the beginning of time, with Early Mesopotamian and Ancient Egyptians art showcasing their pets with the first collars – Egyptians favoured amber for their aesthetic while deterring fleas and ticks. Ancient Egyptians loved their cats so much, the penalty for killing one – even by accident – resulted in death.
The essentials: food, belly rubs and the MYJS Pet Collection
Pet Jewellery Fashion
Our pets provide us with a sense of purpose. They decrease our stress levels and boost our sense of wellbeing. Our pets are our very own babies. They are our family – and we always want the best for them.
As fashion and jewellery allows us to express our individuality, pet jewellery celebrates our bond with our little beast. Pet jewellery is the opportunity to share our love for our doggo or kitty to the world.
I’m a lover, not a biter
Fashion is for everyone. We all deserve to sparkle, and fashionable pet lovers – and their beloved pets – deserve to shine too.
We want to look good, feel great and guilt-free with modern sparkly pieces contributing positively to our everyday life. But just as we need to care about the quality and safety of jewellery for ourselves, we also need to care about this for our pets as well.
Jewellery fashion should always be inspired by high quality glamour. Jewellery created under poor working conditions and shoddy workmanship using inferior materials and design results in a poor-quality product. Through great design, craftsmanship and using quality materials, it is possible to empower and brighten the everyday with ethical, affordable, safe, designer pet jewellery.
Unless designed well, pet jewellery is more for fun than function. But when it comes to our pets, comfort should trump vanity – always. Some pets were made for glamour – some, not. Our pet’s comfort, safety and health should always be our first consideration. If our pets don’t like wearing their bling, they just don’t like it and we should accept their natural beauty is more than enough.
A true friend leaves paw prints on your heart
Supervise pets so they don’t chew or swallow their pet bling.
Look for materials that are pet-safe, non-toxic and durable, and won’t choke them or break. Check for sharp irritable edges. Any lining that touches our pets’ skin should be smooth or soft to avoid irritating or scratching their skin and damaging their coat. Excessive scratching to remove the jewellery results in irritated skin and can lead to infections. Cheap materials – particularly nickel – irritates sensitive skin, leading to rashes and hives.
Just as we pop on our pearls for special events, pet jewellery is best worn on special occasions – we shouldn’t let puppy or kitty romp around with their finest neck gems through the underbrush.
The world of pet jewellery includes just about everything you can find in your own jewellery box.
Bejewelled, encrusted, rhinestones, diamonds, crystals, pearls and charms are delightful adornments for our pets’ collars, name tags and pieces. It’s always about adding sassy style to our dog or cat’s collar with safe modern designs.
For more than 3,000 years, the Emerald has been treasured above other gemstones for its rarity and brilliance. The colour for Venus, adored by Cleopatra and beloved by Elizabeth Taylor, Kate Middleton, Angelina Jolie and celebrities galore, the Emerald is symbolic of rebirth, representing good fortune, youth, balance, growth and peace.
It is the gem for wealth, refinement and royalty. As the colour of nature, green embodies life, fertility and abundance. Green soothes the mind and body, inspiring comfort, safety and security.
Working with the heart chakra, energy channels are cleared of negativity for hope, optimism and wellbeing.
Whatever anyone does or says, I must be emerald and keep my colour
– Marcus Aurelius
Green is the new black: it is the colour that reigns supreme in the fashion world – the closest to bathing yourself in nature, forests and grass.
As the expression of our hopeful spirits, wear green to reconnect with the world, friends and loved ones.
Freshen your look with pops of emerald or go monochrome green to really project your kindness and abundance while channeling all the luxury.
Give me songs to sing and emerald dreams to dream and I’ll give you love unfolding
– Jim Morrison
Brilliant green emerald jewellery fashion
Richly ravishing and radiant, Emeralds are show stopping. As the hardest stone after diamond, their striking brilliance has inspired the Emerald cut, designed for maximum vividness, luxury and shine.
Coordinate with peach, aubergine, rose, pink or purple for a brilliant backdrop to showcase the green of your emerald jewellery.
Dress up jeans, tee and a blazer with emeralds to go from casual office Fridays to end of week drinks easily.
Keep makeup neutral or smokey to enhance the rich green of sparkly emeralds.
In your everyday, choose simple looks and clean lines with neutral colours. The contrast in colours brilliantly brings out the green tones for a subtle pop of brilliance. While still beautiful, patterns and details designs won’t showcase emerald in its best light, drowning out its distinctive beauty.
Scoop necklines are perfect for showcasing emerald studs or drop earrings.
The future is green
A special occasion always calls for special jewels. Emerald green jewellery fashion deserves to stand out with intricate design and added sparkle for a real statement. As statement pieces, we can celebrate emeralds in envious style.
Choose a standout piece and build around it with smaller, more simpler designs to balance the look.
Opt for figure hugging silhouettes to allow emeralds to shine. Statement necklaces work best against low cut necklines, while emerald rings are beautiful when paired with sleek elegant short-sleeve and halter neck outfits.
If adding wrist twinkles, either go all the way with a matching bracelet or pare back and go simple.
Whatever anyone does or says, I must be emerald and keep my colour

The iconic MYJS Bella Collection is essential to the everyday. We wear jewellery to complement the colour and style of an outfit for the ultimate polished look. We imbue jewellery with special powers to make us feel confident and happy. Jewellery takes a formal look to the next level, or adds pop to our plain, monochrome, neutral or basic outfits. Jewellery is the timeless classic accessory reflecting our mood, personality and style.
To find the ubiquitous piece versatile enough to segue from day into night, from the office to happy hour or for the most special of occasions (even if a glass of wine over the kitchen sink is the special occasion) without stealing the entire show, is to lay your hands on the holy grail.
Bad jewellery can cheapen an outfit, or turn a simple look into a clumsy one. It can make your work clothes look unprofessional or leave your stunning dress looking unpolished. It can be bad for your health with the cheap materials leaving rashes and marks on your skin.
Choosing your jewellery is all about creating a balanced look to turn heads wherever you go.
– Old My Jewellery Story saying
The MYJS Bella Collection is the unicorn of the designer jewellery world featuring stunning ethical non-mined Swarovski® or Austrian crystals designed in a setting for sparkle and shine with each movement.
With 40 colour combinations, the piece de resistance of the collection are MYJS Bella earrings, designed to capture the light of every brave woman from within – to shine, shine, shine. MYJS Bella Earrings are the sparkling statement where the edge of graceful design meets polished perfection.
They’re subtle enough to be classy and big enough to make a statement and incredibly effective to enhance every outfit.
For the girly girl, they’re your best friend: nothing adds that feminine touch more than a pair of sparkly elegant earrings.
Feeling bold? Go big and solid with colour.
Don’t have a reason to pop on a sparkle? Pop them on anyway – even if the reason is that you have a pair of Bellas in your jewellery box.
Bella Earrings are not just about sparkly earrings – they’re an attitude.
Be yourself and you can be anything
The psychology behind Bella Earrings: The Bella woman
The Bella woman is the epitome of stunning female energy – authentic, resilient and always fabulous. Just like the Bella Collection, the Bella woman sparkles and shines with each movement, capturing the light within to shine out into the world.
She is representative of the everyday woman: that dynamic feminine energy always on the go, disassembling arguments, kissing away hurts and saving the day.
MYJS Bella Earrings were designed to complement the fabulous modern woman’s everyday life:
💖 Easy to wear 💖 Never too heavy for your ears 💖 Mask-friendly 💖 Nickel-free and 100% hypoallergenic 💖 Ethical and non-mined
– safe for you without costing the earth
A Bella woman was not born fabulous. Just like diamonds, the Bella woman is forged under pressure.
Bellas were designed to pair well to everything: ornate necklaces, pendants and rings; delicate chains; chunky, glittery bracelets; thin arm cuffs; layered; minimal. From important work lunches to happy hour with the girls, date night or family BBQs; easy for the gym, easy on life and easy in a bubble bath with a glass of Aldi Rosé: MYJS Bellas bring unapologetic sparkle to the day.
It all starts with choosing the right colours to highlight our eyes and face – for the right occasion.
Start with colour
Colour attracts attention and creates an emotional connection. Colour reflects our mood and confidence and is the first thing people see – with instant impact. It’s our armour – there to protect us from bad juju while boosting our good spirits. Colour is incredibly personal, from rich, bold hues to soft, delicate shades, wild patterns or neutral palettes.
Colours are the smiles or nature
– James Henry Leigh Hunt
A change is as good as a season
Mix warm jewellery with cool colours in Spring and Summer, and cool jewellery with warm colours in Autumn and Winter – for seasonal changeups to your look.
Gold. Black. White.
The black LBD or simple white outfits deserve simple powerful statements such as bright gold with black diamond.
Up for double duty where you mix play with abundance? Patterns are classy, timeless and slimming but require keeping pieces minimal. Go-to rose gold with clear crystals never fail. Want something with a little more lift? Pick out a solid complementary colour for checks, polka dots or stripes – and make sure earrings pair to belts, bags and shoes for effortless polish.
The eye is the jewel of the body
– Henry David Thoreau
Our eyes are the windows to our soul. From deep brown to light blue, the simple way to bring out the colour in your eyes is with earrings.
Blue eyes come into the spotlight with more neutral or simple colours such as orange, silver, opal or pearly gemstones. Citrine, Peach, Opal, Agate, Aurora Borealis and Topaz bring out the best in blue eyes.
Hazel eyes are stunning with hints of green, brown and blue shifting within each other and love pink, purple, blue, green and shimmer gemstones.
Pink Tourmaline or Rose crystals, Amethyst, Sapphire, Montana Blue, Tanzanite, Turquoise, Teal, Emerald, Peridot, Opal and Aurora Borealis bring out the best in hazel so they shine in all their glory.
Brown eyes love colour – especially bright green, blue and purple gemstones.
The contrast of Jade, Turquoise, Sapphire, Emerald and Amethyst allow brown eyes to steal the show.
Why fit in when you were born to stand out
– Dr Seuss
Jewellery matches the occasion
The occasion – big or small – is the decision-making factor for every look to match
Whether brunch, lunch or dinner with friends, family or the girls, casual situations allow for great opportunities to wear something really colourful. Enjoy rich colours to add pop to shirt and jeans, or simple, neutral looks of black, grey and/or white – including ivory, beige, tan, brown and camel.
Rose gold with Rose, silver with Violet or gold with Peridot effortlessly adds pop to any neutral look – just enough to be arresting.
Opting for dainty florals? Rose gold with Pink or Rose Opal, gold with Vintage Rose or silver with Amethyst are unabashedly fun, flirty and feminine.
For work-life, simple, understated, minimal and elegant always work well with blazers, work shirts and pulled back or up hair. Think classic and smart: Keep close to gold or silver metals with jewellery that is either understated or adds pop to your work clothes.
Gold with dark green or silver with royal blue are ideal work-life jewellery go-tos.
Renown for its clear aqua blue colour, the March birthstone of Aquamarine shines bright and sparkling.
Aquamarine represents youth, hope and fidelity. The colour for calm authority, the sparkling pale blue green represents the ocean’s depths, inspiring compromise for flowing, peaceful energy.
Admired through the ages by the Sumerians, Egyptians, Hebrews and Greeks as a symbol of happiness and everlasting youth, the gemstone known as the “water of the sea” was the sailor’s protection for a safe and prosperous passage.
Reflecting both the sea and the sky, embrace open spaces, freedom and intuition with the vitality of health and hope. As the reflective hue for water with its shifting charm, the hybrid blue-green is versatile and flattering on every skin tone and hair colour. Aquamarine is brilliant without knowing it.
The sun is up, the sky is blue; it’s beautiful and so are you
The psychology behind aqua
As the colour of love and luck, aquamarine is dreamy, spiritual and flowing like the ocean surging close to your heart and controlling our emotions through balance and stability. The colour for friendliness and confidence, aqua is reassuring.
Blue is the colour for taking brave steps forward to journeys deep within.
Choose when you are the calm blue sea and when you are the storm
As a versatile shade, aquamarine can look both sporty and expensive. Be it settling victory in battles to legal disputes in the courtroom, aquamarine stands for triumph, bringing a playful high end energy to couture and loungewear. Aqua in fashion makes you approachable – wear to exude authority, serenity, trust and loyalty.
But don’t go subtle: if you’re going to stand out, make a statement.
Aquamarine speaks to both the head and the heart. When pairing these powerhouses together, aquamarine gives rise to positive healthy emotions for powerful emotional stability. Aquamarine restores, warms and soothes the soul. As the perfect armour against stress and fatigue, aquamarine’s serene and sunny disposition makes everything sparklier.
Embrace command and serenity when frosted in these bright blue stones. Stay connected, knowing your calm authority is on alert.
With silver, gold or rose gold settings, the versatility of aquamarine twinkles for effortless style, segue-ing nicely from casual to After 5 – or even just over the kitchen sink.
Blue green stones
March’s Aquamarine, September’s Sapphire, October’s Tourmaline and December’s Blue Topaz offer tranquillity, serenity, clarity and courage. Sparkling pale blue-greens align with the ocean’s depths to inspire compromise for flowing, peaceful energy. Protect and purify your energy for emotional healing with the gems of vitality, health and hope.
Embrace your emotions for soothing calm and harmony, with chartreuse shadows and the glint of blue-green striking the sun.
Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, and drink the wild air with reassuring Aquamarine power.
Because every great design starts with an even better story – the story of you
Few things allow for joy to come as simply or swiftly as putting on a stunning piece of jewellery – especially the heartfelt variety. Even the most basic b’tches have a special – though streamlined – collection of solid-gold-somethings that secretly mean a lot.
While jewellery is the essential accessory, the criteria for beautifully-designed jewellery
brings sparkle to the everyday
offers a sense of uniqueness and exclusivity for a great investment
Designer jewellery is the new fashion essential, where premium design, quality materials and craftsmanship meet. But what exactly defines designer jewellery? Is it the price? The materials? The accessibility?
The ethos of designer jewellery is simple but extraordinary
Handcrafted for its timelessness and uniqueness – with just that extra dash of special – designer jewellery consciously segues from the everyday through to happy hour and special occasions as a wallet-friendly way to get in on all the trends, while transcending every fashion craze and style.
Designer jewellery also refers to collections conceived and executed with artistic ability and craftsmanship.
Custom-designed for timelessness, designer jewellery is produced in limited series to preserve the collections’ and piece’s exceptional quality and preciousness.
Personal talismans from symbolic sparklers and gemstones offer the additional endowment of special powers for protection or good fortune.
From fortune-finding symbols to shielding crystals or gemstones, our designer good luck charms lift the mood and spirit – because we all deserve joy in our day.
But it is the feature of ecological and ethical jewels as the significant marker in designer jewellery. A connection to our environment and community drives the eco-responsibility of designer jewellery houses.
Onsite production allows for the quality control of each piece while supporting the local artisan community – without costing the earth.
Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway

MYJS love collection
As the universal symbol for love, the Heart represents the seat of emotion, affection, unity and romance.

As the colour of royalty and nobility, Purple is the colour of Queens.
Purple is elaborate majesty, fantasy and magic; the colour of bravery, wisdom, imagination and creativity.
Purple is unique and exotic – and stunning. Purple turns heads. The colour for harmony, the violet hue represents the balance between opposing forces. It has stood out in history as the signature colour for Roman emperors and the 1900s Suffragette Movement, extending to Prince and his 80s track Purple Rain.
Purple keeps our backs straight and heads held high
The psychology behind purple
Purple is one of those topics of contention: is it purple? Is it pink? Is it mauve? Is it something in between? Can we get away with calling lilac purple? Where does lavender fit in? What about wine? There are so many shades, our opinion are divided.
A base blend of red and blue, every other colour in the rainbow can be added to create so many different shades, tints and hues. But as a union of both cool and warm shades – the calm stability of blue and the energy and strength of red – purple unites the best in both for graceful independence and dignity.
Purple is the colour to break barriers and create change.
When Pantone announced the bold and daring Veri Peri as Colour of the Year, they were embracing the vivid joy and fierceness of purple. But Very Peri takes it one step further – representing the strange, mystique and unconventional. The colour is reflective on the world around us while placing the future in a new light. Purple – and Very Peri – changes the way we look at the world. As the colour for 2022, we are living in transformative times, opening the door to new possibilities. Very Peri illustrates the stylish fusion of modern life with our online one.
While calming the body and mind, purple is also uplifting and inspiring, boosting creativity levels and inspiration. It is the colour for seeking the meaning of life and spiritual fulfilment, expanding our awareness and connecting to the greater consciousness for a transformation of the soul.
Transformation can only take place immediately: the revolution is now, not tomorrow
Purple polarises fashion
Designers have been steadily embracing purple on the runway. While purple is polarising, lavender, lilac, mauve, violet or plum come together as part of the purple family offering a more muted choice to purple’s vibrance.
Warm up your silhouette with a pop or pops of purple accents or accessories to white or black outfits, and dressing up jeans.
Purple dominates the gem spectrum with Purple Diamonds, Purple Chalcedony, Purple Sapphire, Iolite, Purple Jade, Fluorite, Purple Tourmaline, Kunzite, Suglite, Jasper, Charoite or Purple Agate.
But out of them all, Amethyst rules the roost. Take your jewellery to the max: frost yourself in Amethyst for dynamic fearlessness.
Amethyst brings love, light and a crowning calm to life. As Nature’s tranquilliser, earrings and bracelets embrace the healing energy of Amethyst for connecting to your serenity and balancing your body and soul. Embrace its powers for calmness, clarity and decision making.
Power up with amethyst to work wonders for the immune system, ease tension and headaches for restorative recovery. Stay connected, steady and as cool as a cucumber knowing your wisdom, intuition and the greater good is always at hand.
Amethyst gems and crystals in silver settings twinkle nicely with relaxed looks for effortless style.
Rose gold settings add an extra layer of refinement that segues easily from casual to After 5 – and beyond.
The all-purpose stones of peace, humility and spiritual wisdom, February’s birthstone Amethyst and October’s birthstone Tourmaline align with the universe for balancing mind flow to heal and purify, crushing and protecting against all vestiges of anger, rage and fear. The stone for beauty, femininity and independence, embrace your nobility and power – and shine bright.
Stay calm and find peace within chaos where your mysterious purple soul is reflected in Amethyst eyes.
Sparkly jewellery, Monolo Blahnik heels, Jaeger-LeCoultre® watches. We all love our bling. All that glitters should be guilt-free. While jewellery is an indulgent treat, it is also a reminder we deserve to shine. Wearing sparkly jewellery is very much a part of self-care – the luxury of a 2-hour bubble bath or adding that shiny trinket to add pop to our activewear or sweats does wonders to our mind and soul.
But why do we love to decorate ourselves?
Because everything we wear sends a message. What we wear tells our story. Our jewellery are coded symbols and has been central to the unique ability of human symbolic communication. Our jewellery are an indication of status – available, married, leader, part of a brother or sisterhood.
But most importantly, Bling makes us human.
Inner beauty is what truly brings light to this world: our immense capacity for kindness, compassion, humility and honesty are our greatest most beautiful gems. And jewellery amplifies our inner shine for the world to bask in: sparkles have the power for instant change and instant charge where age, occupation and our postcode doesn’t matter.
We deserve to feel guilt-free about our jewellery choices and sidestep the extra potential costs on our communities or the earth without also impacting on our health and wallets. Guilt free jewellery is the basis of the MYJS philosophy. Here’s what you need to know.
All that glitters should be guilt-free
While we all covet traditional high end jewellery, the price tag that comes with it is often beyond our reach. But cheap(er) jewellery, created from working in poor conditions with shoddy workmanship using inferior materials and design frequently results in cheap, poor-quality nickel pieces. They promise a world of sparkle while leaving black or green marks and irritating our skin.
We can make the decisions to have well designed jewellery from materials that aren’t harmful to our skin – and leave us to sparkle.
Caring about the communities supporting our love for shiny things is also crucial in the decisions we make for our guilt-free baubles, because we are buying from business owners, creatives, designers and craftspeople.
• Do you know where the pieces are made and if the working conditions are ethical?
Supporting independent artists and creatives in the design and craftsmanship of jewellery means a great piece can be well designed and economically priced.
Pieces from small scale manufacturing jewellers with a great reputation (just like us!) means a better investment for us as buyers.
The source of the materials used in jewellery impacts heavily on our communities and environment – there is no such thing as cheap silver, gold or rose-gold jewellery. If a piece is lovely and shiny in colour, this doesn’t always mean it’s made from those materials.
• Does the piece list the materials it’s made from?
• Is it clear what type of gemstones they are and where they’re sourced from?
• Do they come from war zones?
• Is the earth mined in obtaining these stones?
A great jewellery brand clearly states its materials and gemstones, whether lab grown, simulated and lead-free.
Every jewellery box needs timeless jewellery pieces to flaunt at every occasion – essentials to add sparkle to your look or something bold to remember you by. Whether a ring, necklace, bracelet or earrings, a woman needs her signature pieces to add sparkle and shine to each day. It’s all about luxury – preferably minus the pricey price tag.
The right everyday jewellery adds to the perfect tee, tailored blazer or dependable LBD. Dressed up or down, we can build our jewellery box with everyday pieces that work well with changing trends while carrying us through our day to day – or even extend day into night.
Life isn’t perfect, but your jewellery can be
Earrings can make a woman look sexy or extravagant, elevating or balancing her outfit, skin tone and face shape. From studs to hoops and dangly sparkle statements, earrings highlight our best features and can change our entire look.
As the LBD of your jewellery box, studs add glamour to your outfit without breaking your look or being too subtle.
Size never matters – big or tiny, the sparklier, the bolder, the better. Add edge with geometric shapes.
MYJS Bella Earrings
Need to liven up jeans and a tshirt or wear from the office to happy hour? MYJS Bella Earrings are the sparkling statement where the edge of graceful design meets polished perfection.
Bella Earrings are not just about sparkly earrings – they’re an attitude. When she pops on her bella earrings, the Bella Woman becomes the epitome of stunning female energy – authentic, resilient and always fabulous.
Don’t have a reason to wear your sparkle? Pop them on anyway – even if the reason is that you have a pair of Bellas in your jewellery box.
Add an edgy vibe to the day with the JLo essential.
As the ultimate visual cue to who’s the real bossb’tch around here, just remember to keep hair pulled back and a bare neckline for best results – just make sure to wear them with fearless swagger.
Bring a unique style to your earring game with the perfect go-to, fit for every occasion, season and reason.
The perfect blend of studs and hoops that hugs the lobe of the ear, Huggies are the new on-trend fashion accessory – great for single or multiple piercings.
Fabulous sparkly earrings always brings the wow factor, and drama to your look. Fashion-forward and shoulder-grazing, statement earrings can be counted on to bring the drama, accenting the facial features and drawing attention straight to the face. They scream “diva” when you enter the room.
Designed to pack a punch, they can be elegant, a little wild, and complicated.
When adding bracelet, necklace and rings, either go all out fabulous big and sparkly or balance the glitz with subtle and delicate.
Statement Earrings were never designed to follow the rules. They’re all about personality, creating a focal point for your outfit while injecting a thrill to the look. So dare to add an element of the unexpected and level up casual monochrome, all black or denim.
Be it for during the day or After 5, Statement Earrings are an expression of attitude to bring your look to life.
As power symbols, bracelets reflect confidence and always make a statement – even if it’s a subtle one.
Stack for fun or go minimal for an assured polished look.
A game, set, match in any jewellery line up. Versatile and stylish, the tennis bracelet is the ideal all-occasion accessory.
Minimally sparkling featuring an endless circle of symmetrical settings with dainty crystals, we can understand Kate Middleton’s bias towards this sleek modern staple.
A legacy to expert craftsmanship, the Cuff Bangle is bold with a simple silhouette and adds daring flare.
Maintain that timeless look and pair to matching studs and delicate rings with bare arms or rolled up shirt sleeves.
Sweetly jangling bangles add a lyrical dimension to our jewellery fashion. Designed to gently flow and glide with the body, the gentle music of these wrist twinkles adds to the beauty of a woman.
Bangles ooze a classic and timeless beauty and are an easy fashion choice, working with all kind of looks from casual to professional or dressy.
The most transformative pieces in your jewellery box, Necklaces can take plain tshirts and little black dresses to new heights. Go from hot-mess or basic b’tch to looking like you’ve got your sh’t together (even if that isn’t 120% the truth).
Thin to thick, lightweight to weighty, chain necklaces are fresh and layerable. Edgy, dressy and sculptured or casual and understated, the chain necklace is always timeless.
The freedom in designing and creating your own necklace means a beautiful piece made just for you – nothing mass produced using cheap, unhealthy materials.
Inject luxury to your necklace game with your birthstone, initials, zodiac sign, power symbol, words or dates. As your very own signature piece, wear your personalised necklace year in, year out.
As a mark of status, charm, promise or commitment, rings bring a grace and delicateness to our hands while bringing out our personality. Ultimately, it’s all about the right balance of ring bling. Any combination works: mix metals and gemstones. The rule of rings is never to detract from your most special bling on your engagement or wedding ring finger. So this means, every other finger is up for grabs.Make your own mark by choosing your favourite hue – rose, yellow gold, silver – and build from there. Gold Rings are the staple of every jewellery collection and never makes wrong turns. Silver-tone rings are best when paired with basic jeans.
Ring stacking is a trend of excessiveness: opulent, refined, with stones. There is no limit to creativity or preference from slim filagree to minimalist and wishbones.
Stack simple narrow bands for subtle glimmer or pop on flashy rings for statement sparkle.
Feeling basic? Just wear one.
Feeling perfectly playful? Wear one on each finger for a delicate edge.
Feeling gutsy? Pair on the same hand for a subtle statement.
Want glimmer and glamour? Wear them all.
Statement and Cocktail Rings don’t have to be big ticket pieces, but they are sparkly reminders of how fun it is to shine.
Just like Statement Earrings, Statement and Cocktail Rings demand attention. Choose flashy rings for statement sparkle – and of course, make sure the manicure is on point for extra polish.
Want to keep it simple? Pop on just the one.
Aiming for OTT? Boldly pair your dazzlers on the same hand.
Never underestimate the allure of creamy pearls – pearls are always appropriate. Trend setters Kamala Harris and Harry Styles prove pearls are the modern statement piece.
In a world of black or white, wearing life-affirming red is our brightest coloured and most powerful armour.
At least once in a lifetime, every woman has to have that red showstopper, perhaps for a very special occasion or just .. because.
Red: the colour for royalty, war and empires, from ancient Chinese dynasties to the modern Russian empire, 1400s English Tudors, Tibetan Buddhist monks and Sikhs. Revolutions are ignited by red. We stand out in the crowd when we wear it and our lips look fabulous with it. No other colour has the extraordinary appeal of red. Red leaves its mark – or, at the least, a crimson smudge 💋
We are hard-wired to red with no other colour so fundamentally fused to our primeval human urges. Red takes no prisoners. It’s the stop sign, the alert, a roadblock, the alarm, the desire, the passion, the excitement. Red is dangerous. It’s the colour for the devil and the blood of Jesus. Red is the animal impulse and the beating heart, the desert dust and the earth’s core. It’s the colour of life and action.
Red’s sexual and confidence-boosting, butt-kicking powers isn’t just for show: if you wear it, you have to embody everything red stands for. There is no retreat with red.
Choose the power of red jewellery as a reminder of the ass-kicking fierce, confident badass you really are.
The psychology behind red
The colour for love, passion, energy and sexuality, red is all about action. Red attracts attention and signifies strength, power, courage and danger. We can use red to boost our confidence and inspire passion or desire – but it’s about keeping balance.
Too much red, we can come across as aggressive and hostile.
Never wear red, and we might be unconsciously signalling we don’t like to attract attention and are unsure of ourselves.
Red rules fashion
As the fashion code for all seasons, Red rules fashion. The colour for sinners and saints, red represents our life force and inner fire. With red, we dare to be brave.
Red packs quite a punch to your style statement, but while red is the power colour, don’t let it be overpowering.
Minimise your accessories when wearing top-to-toe red outfits: keep it simple. Let the red do all the talking.
Blend with neutral shades such as black, gray, white – or opt for softer peaches – for win-win options.
Accentuate florals with dashes of red stones.
Elevate your after-5pm look with brilliant red jewels – rubies, garnets and agate always catches the candlelight nicely.
Pair to gold for the ultimate in luxury.
Red in jewellery
Take your jewellery to the max: frost yourself in Rubies, Garnets and Agate for pops of power colour.
As statement accessories, the talisman jewellery of a flashing red pendant adds drama and passion to your look for next level decadence.
Draw the eye and light up your neckline for long summer days or for vibrance on short wintery nights.
Wearing that red showstopper for a semi-formal cocktail party or dinner date? It’s a risk when played well, pays off. Always keep accessories classy, sophisticated and minimal with daintily, dazzling pieces.
Sensational and bold, red jewelled bracelets stand for luck, protection and good fortune.
In ancient China, the Red Thread of Fate is associated with the intentions for marriage, while in Latin America, red bracelets are worn by babies for protection. In the Bible, a red bracelet symbolises redemption.
They are a reminder we’re not alone, prompting us to stay positive in the face of challenges.
Add a splash of inner-fire red to a basic outfit or get ready for romance with our Bella Earrings with Ruby Swarovski® Crystals. Add versatility to your jewellery wardrobe with MYJS Mix Charms and Carrier Hoops for effortless mix and match.
As the unsung heroes of luxury, studs are timeless, adding a splash of sparkle to the everyday. Add an earring jacket for some flair to make a classic staple, modern – and take delicate to fierce.
As the stones of love and friendship, January’s birthstone Garnet, May’s birthstone Agate and July’s birthstone Ruby are associated with the heart and blood for our inner fire and life force. Transforming surrounding energies and reducing toxins while soothing negative feelings, these blood-red stones are little symbols of big dreams, bringing balance while boosting confidence, love, abundance, wealth and success.
