Stud Collar Necklace - £11
Alpaca Long Ring - £6.50
Evil Eye Ring - £4
Having followed Ella's blog for a long time I recently decided it was time to invest in some bits from her jewellery line Ruby Rae Love. There have been so many times when I have fallen in love with something in her shop but missed out due to the fact that Ella makes every single item herself and there are only so many pieces. I have been lusting after a collar necklace for a while and decided that instead of spending my pennies with a place like H&M or Topshop I would support a independent brand and get myself something unique at the same time.
I love buying bits like this from independent brands, nothing can beat the personal touch such as Ella's, as she tweeted me straight after my purchase with a thank you and ensured me my jewels were on their happy little way to me.
I am going to save the collar necklace for upcoming outfit posts as I am sure you are going to be seeing a lot of it. I realised that I never really take any pictures of my rings and when a person has as many as I do they should be shared. I tend to mix silver and gold but my YSL Arty ring only fits on one finger which happens to be the only finger my Marc Jacobs ring fits on too. The other little silver gemstone ring was bought from another independent retailer in San Diego next to my hostel.
You can check out all of Ella's lovely bits by clicking the image above, she recently had a bit of a re-stock and there are yet more pieces I would love to own as well if I had more money to spend.
Do you have any favourite independent jewellery shops? Or do you run your own?
