|Shop fabulous statement jewellery, cuffs and more at this online gem|
Online retailer Pinwheel Jewels is a new company that curates designer collections from all parts of the globe and makes them available in Singapore. Newly opened in July 2013, the brands are otherwise quite hard to find here, and you’ll find a mix of veteran designers as well as upcoming artists from all parts of the world including the USA, Spain, Israel and Japan.
The various jewellery collections in store bridge a gap between fine jewellery and high-street fashion jewellery - think hard wearing statement pieces which look and feel special. I often buy statement jewellery because a piece can instantly transform an outfit and express your mood. For example, if I want to give my plain LBD an edge for a night out I'll put on a spiked or studded necklace and heels. Its also relatively inexpensive plus I feel I'm a bit too young and carefree to be wearing diamonds and fine jewellery anyway (my wallet is also that much happier).
One label which has caught my eye is JOYO, an eco-friendly brand that makes handcrafted jewellery from sustainable materials as and where possible. The beautiful cuff photographed above is crafted with laser-cut leaf details, and has a lining made from 100% recycled material, as well as a wooden veneer sourced from sustainable wood. The bracelet itself adds textural interest to an outfit – I’d pair it with a white cotton midi dress and wedges for a day to night look.
