This Coral Cocktail Ring by jewellery king Kenneth Jay Lane is the perfect head turning accessory. With a large coral dome shaped stone in the centre, set amongst a diamante trim on an adjustable gold band this is the ultimate classy ring, not just for wearing when drinking cocktails.

Coral, despite it’s orangey tones, matches almost any colour. It works well with the neutrals, and this ring would definitely offset a LBD perfectly. It also works well with deep greens, golds, and blues.

Perfect Pearls

Topshop Pearl and Flower NecklacePearls are always in fashion, and this season is no exception. They go with literally any outfit – from office wear to an LBD to casual day wear. You could spend hundreds of pounds on a string of real pearls, or you could pop to Topshop where you can get this Pearl and Flower Necklace for only £20.

With four rows of pearls and a flower corsage details, this necklace is timeless but still on trend. It would look great with a low neck dress to add subtle detail, or it would stand out over the top of a black garment. Despite the fact that the pearls are plastic, this necklace has a super sophisticated feel, and is definitely a go-to accessory if you’re feeling stuck!

It’s available now from the Topshop website.

Ring a Ding Ding

ASOS RingsStatement rings are great for adding detail to an outfit, whether it’s a finishing touch to a great evening dress, or just to add a bit of sparkle and interest to a jeans and tee combo.

I’ve picked out a couple of my favourites currently available on ASOS. First, this Double Layer Stone Ring, on the right, costing £10. It comes in this season’s top colour – purple. It would complement any purple outfit, or add a bit of jewel inspired colour to a black or gray outfit. Measuring at about 4cm long it’s definitely big enough to get noticed and make a statement. For something more traditional, but still eye catching, have a look at the Single Stone Ring. With one big stone and smaller ones set into the band and with a high shine finish, this will match any outfit as a great accessory. It’s also quite a bargain at only £5.

Robert Cavalli Bangle

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Robert Cavalli BangleThis Star Bangle by Robert Cavalli is certainly an eye catcher! It’s perfect for making a less than dazzling evening outfit come alive. Blue and gold are a match made in heaven, and the bold colour offsets the sparkly colour perfectly. It’s even got a sparkly metallic finish!

The detailing on the stars is also really intricate, with silver diamante gems and clear stones set on a textured gold background. The bangle is a nice chunky one, perfect for this season’s statement jewellery trend, and for the really daring why not team it with some other bangles as well. Remember to go easy on other accessories though, you don’t want to be too weighed down.

The Robert Cavalli Star Bangle costs £290 and is available from Net-a-Porter.
