The label was founded on the idea of versatility; both with allowing women to run their own sustainable business, and in terms of the jewellery itself, which is totally multi-wear and customizable.  These beautiful bohemian earrings from the new Summer collection can be unhooked and taken apart to wear as studs, small dangly earrings or full-on festival chic drop earrings, so you basically get 3 in 1!

Alongside Amy from Scottish lifestyle blog The Luminous Life, a couple of weeks ago I was invited to The Glasshouse Hotel for brunch to preview the new Stella & Dot Summer Collection. The new arrivals include a bright and bold colourful, a boho chic festival range, and a minimalist, delicately crafted range called Covet. Stella & Dot also make sunglasses and bags which are totally gorgeous. Stella and Dot also do a Couture Collection of absolutely stunning statement pieces.

It was nearly impossible to pick my favourite pieces from Stella & Dot, but in the end I fell in love with some tribal-inspired statement earrings called the Cecily Chandeliers. I also ended up going home with the Mina Draped Choker, an open-ended suede and silver tasseled necklace, the Pave Ear Cuff, a silver crystal studded midi ear hoop, and the Wesley Sunglasses in Tortoiseshell.

I'm actually gutted I hadn't heard of the brand before; its like a more contemporary version of Accessorize, with even more variety, and the designs are so carefully considered and high quality with incredible attention to detail, all ethically made. If you're looking for afforable luxury with a truly personal touch, then I would definately recommend shopping at Stella & Dot. Check out all the new arrivals here.
