My week of wearing Stella & Dot Jewellery!

I had heard of Stella & Dot jewellery and admired it a couple of times in magazines, but had never seen it in the flesh, so I was thrilled when Jacqui, a Stella & Dot stylist for the Dorset area, got in touch with me to see if I would like to borrow some pieces from her collection. Hmmm, let me think about that for a second!

Obviously I said yes, and have had a wonderful week trying them all out, even if I have looked a bit overly blinged for things like the school run! Luckily, I've also had some occasions to wear it properly and the first was last weekend when I styled a gorgeous dress that I had been sent to review by Allium B. Jacqui suggested the Mallorca Pendant (£65) to match the dress and she was right, the boho style of the necklace ties in beautifully with the retro Liberty print:


I also selected the Amelie Sparkle Bracelet (£35) to match my beloved Olivia Burton watch. Don't they look perfect together? I really won't want to give this back at the end of the week!


Another gorgeous bracelet is the Renegade Stretch Bracelet (£45). I am wearing it in gold below but it also comes in rose gold, which would look stunning stacked against the Amelie Sparkle:



The Nancy Studs (£19) also match the Amelie Sparkle bracelet beautifully:



My well known love of statement necklaces also led me to choose the colourful Elodie Necklace £75

I love bold necklaces with stripes and I wore it for a barbecue on Sunday with my striped midi dress from Whistles last summer:



The colours in the necklace are so pretty and I teamed it later in the week with a grey ruffled tee and green chinos:



Another stunning statement necklace that Jacqui showed me is this one from the summer collection:

Coral Cay Necklace £80


It has matching fan earrings where you can remove the bottom tiers and wear them as a single drop:

Coral Cay Earrings £45


I also fell in love with the Sutton Necklace (£110), a more modern statement necklace - I adore the
sparkle on it!



This is actually an incredibly versatile necklace as it can be worn as a statement like I am wearing it above or it can be worn long like this:


You can also wear it long or short without the sparkle strand or the sparkle strand can be worn alone like this:


For those who prefer something more delicate, Stella & Dot has some really unique pieces and there are so many to choose from. I loved wearing these two silver bracelets together - the Arrison Stretch (£25) and the Radiance Coil Bracelet (£25).


And for a daintier necklace this one is really cute, either worn on its own or layered with a longer chain:

On The Mark Necklace £40


After studying the entire collection (at length!) I have also got my eye on the two statement necklaces below, both stunning:

Pegasus Necklace £170


I would like to wear the Pegasus above with a black jumpsuit that I may have purchased for a 40th birthday party next month!

And I'd love this one below to take on holiday:

The Stone Sutton £145



The Stone Sutton can be worn in multiple ways like the Sutton necklace featured previously. It would be perfect worn long over a maxi dress!

I could literally go on and on about this fabulous jewellery, but that is probably enough from me! I do get to keep a little something from the collection though and will report back (still deciding!).

Do you have a favourite? I would love to hear which one..

A huge thank you to Jacqui for lending me her collection. If you would like to order any Stella & Dot jewellery please go to www.stelladot.co.uk/jacs
If you would like to host a Stella & Dot party at your home and enjoy free shopping, you can get in touch with Jacqui at jacquiemma@gmail.com. It's a bit like a pop-up shop at your house combined with an online shopping event, where Jacqui would bring her display and style tips for a fun and casual evening. All you would have to do is invite your friends!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. What a lovely collection really like the Majorca pendant, and the bracelets, I am a bit of a bracelet addict. I have never heard of Stella and Dot, till reading your blog going to check out the site. It's going to be difficult for you to decide what have.

  4. I like the Elodie necklace, I may be biased though as it's my daughters name ;-)
    The bracelet was perfect with your watch- will you invest?

  5. Stella & Dot make gorgeous pieces and the quality is superb. I own several items and am always looking to get more from them. I really like those Nancy Studs- very elegant. I'm in love with those green pants- I have the same pair from the Gap! The striped dress is pretty awesome as well.
