There’s nothing I love quite like a statement piece of jewelry. Though I’ve been rocking charms more often then not in the last year, I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for big, bold and brash pieces. I think that in 2014, it’s time to get back to my roots.
My latest jewelry crush, and the brand that probably did the most to facilitate this 180, is Moxham. Designed in South London by Madeleine Moxham, the collection is anything but timid. Using a mix of leather and gold-plated hardware, Moxham’s range is oversized, edgy and even somewhat whimsical. I love how some of the pieces do double-duty, such as necklaces that have a detachable bracelet on the end, so that they can be worn both ways.
I’m so into this brand that I bought my best friend one of their pieces for Christmas, both because I knew she’d love it, and I didn’t feel I could justify splurging on something for myself. (That’s what best friends are for, right?)
Moxham has also done a small collaboration for the fashion brand Three Floor, which is available here. I love how these photos show how chunky and bold the pieces are in real life, and I especially love the contrast between the tough jewelry and feminine fabrics. Clockwise from top left: Rhino cuff, Ace necklace, Falco cuff, Mars necklace.
What do you think of bold jewelry like this? Does it float your boat, or do you like something a bit more delicate?
