Is it just us or has the weather been looking gloomy lately? Cloudy grey skies and heavy downpours might have made us feel a little down at times, but we’re not letting them dampen our spirit. In fact, we’re brightening our days with new, feel-good statement accessories that will pair beautifully with our favourite loungewear essentials. From Dua Lipa’s new favourite jewellery brand to the return of alphabet bracelets, read on as we round up five kawaii jewellery picks that will bring cheer and colour to your lives.
If it’s good enough for Dua Lipa, it’s definitely good enough for us. The singer’s favourite jewellery brand of late seems to be Bea Bongiasca, given how she’s been spotted in the Italian brand’s pieces on multiple occasions. Designer Bea Bongiasca, who’s a Forbes 30 Under 30 alumna and a graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins college, stands out in the fashion scene for her joyous, playful take on contemporary jewellery design and it’s safe to say that we’re crushing hard on her colourful pieces too.
Just three days ago, Dua Lipa revealed a few behind-the-scenes moments of herself gearing up for her upcoming “Studio 2504” online concert that will take place on 27 November. In the post, she was spotted in dark grey ribbed gym-inspired attire alongside Bea Bongiasca’s fun, wiggly baby vine tendril rings and necklace. And in this selfie, she's rocking the brand’s signature earrings as well.
“The more the merrier,” seems to be Latina fashion influencer Janell Castillo’s approach towards jewellery and we’re loving it. In this wonderful shot she shared, she dressed her left wrist in a few bracelets, which included Bauble Bar’s custom cutout Pisa Bracelet.
The affordable fashion jewellery brand’s best-selling bracelet features gold ball beads and you are welcome to customise it your preferences — whether it’s spelling out your name in colourful alphabetical letters or opting for quirky symbols to express your individuality.
We’re mesmerised by Japanese jewellery brand Palnart Poc’s ‘Von Braun’ earrings, which feature a crescent moon on each side of the ear along with tiny stars that appear to be falling down the night sky. Try spotting the intricate blue gradation details on this piece too, which are a testament to the brand’s commitment to producing unique, handmade pieces.
In addition to the delicate earrings, as shown above, Palnart Poc has also produced many standout collections in the past. The brand recently partnered with Pokémon to produce a special collaboration collection that was available exclusively in Japan, where it featured adorable Pokémon creatures such as Vulpix and Snorlax across the brand’s elegant jewellery designs.
Neon neck party
Turn your look from drab to fab by adorning your neck with a few eye-catching necklaces, such as these ones by Roxanne Assoulin. Layer a few of them if you’re opting for a simple dress shirt and you’re all set for your next Zoom meeting. Counting celebrities such as Yara Shahidi and Karlie Kloss as fans, the Instagram-friendly brand is known for its colourful yet minimalist range of accessories.
The above Neon Lite Enamel and Gold-Tone choker comes with an adjustable gold-tone fastening feature so that you can easily customise it according to your desired length. Plus, it’s also a charming conversation starter, given how it’s reminiscent of the tiny fusible beads that some of us often played with during our childhood.
Are you powerful and passionate, just like Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Beauty? Or are you perhaps a kind, peaceful and loving soul just like Selene, the Goddess of the Moon? The Philippines-based jewellery brand Tala by Kyla’s line of Greek- & Goddesses-inspired collection features 12 delicate chokers and we reckon they make perfect gifts for your besties in time for the upcoming festive season.
Made of stainless steel, the Tala by Kyla Greek Mythology choker also features a gold-plated copper and cubic zirconia pendant, which helps to add a tiny touch of colour to your outfits if loud, vibrant hues aren’t your cup of tea.
