Shine bright with the Ingle & Rhode silver and engagement ring collection - Droplet Earrings

 Ingle & Rhode silver and engagement ring collection

If you are looking for timeless jewellery to compliment pretty much everything in your wardrobe, look no further than Ingle & Rhode.

The Mayfair, London, based ethical jewellers presents an online offering including engagement, wedding and eternity rings, with bespoke designs available on request. But today, we are focusing on their silver collection.

What is Fairmined sterling silver?

The entire Ingle & Rhode silver collection is crafted within the UK using Fairmined sterling silver. So, what is Fairmined silver?

Fairmined is a gold standard assurance that the silver used to craft the jewellery is sourced from responsible small-scale mining companies. Companies that meet global standards for responsible sourcing. It is then shaped and finished by expert craftsman.

However, when you purchase your jewellery, can you always be sure where it is sourced and that it is done so responsibly? In the competitive jewellery industry, it is an unfortunate reality that environmental and human exploitation is abundant to keep prices down for mass production.

Consumers are far more aware of these harsh realities and desire conflict-free and responsibly sourced items. With Ingle & Rhode jewellery, you can always ensure that this is the case.

What did I think of the Droplet Earrings?

I was lucky enough to get hold of the diamond Droplet Earrings. These elegant, beautiful and utterly timeless earrings are crafted from the aforementioned and celebrated Fairmined sterling silver. Each earring is then set with a Canadian diamond.

Each sophisticated earring measures 2.5 centimetres in length with a delicate droplet style and clasp reverse. They can be purchased alongside a matching Droplet Pendant.

The majority of items within the silver collection (excluding the cufflinks) are adorned with Canadian diamonds. Diamonds that are beautifully crafted and ethically sourced.

Ethically sourced Canadian diamonds

Canada is renowned for its diamonds. It is one of the few countries worldwide to excavate monitored and traceable diamonds. Meaning they are sourced, cut and polished responsibly.

Thus, all diamonds used by Ingle & Rhode are traceable, fairly mined and certifiable, with Canadian environmental laws ensuring ethical practice and a thorough environmental conciousness.

Once these diamonds have been sourced, mined areas are restored and wildlife is always protected. Most noteworthy, Canada produce 15 per cent of gem quality diamonds globally.

An ethos ensuring quality sourced diamonds

The Ingle & Rhode ethos ensures quality in the sourcing of their diamonds as standard, as well as being paired with their expertly crafted Fairmined sterling silver.

As a result, their ethical approach shines through all of their jewellery collections and the jewellers pride themselves for being ‚Äúsocially and environmentally responsible.‚ÄĚ

Bespoke engagement ring service 

In addition, they also other a bespoke engagement ring service, allowing you to design your engagement ring. There is an abundance of metal and gemstone options, as well as a variety of cut choices. This ensures complete customisation and perfection.

For those looking for that special gift for someone special, or even as a treat for yourself, be sure to discover Ingle & Rhode’s luxury collections of Fairmined silver or gold and platinum jewellery crafted from Fairtrade or recycled precious metal.

Either way, you are guaranteed to find a selection of stylish, ethical and environmentally concious jewellery. Jewellery to suit any occasion, budget and of course, you!

OOTD floral and frill long sleeve 10STORE cocktail dress review, Sunset by Australasia, Manchester | The LDN Gal

10STORE Floral and Frill Long Sleeve Dress

OOTD: FloRAL fRILLS with 10STORE

Spending a weekend in Manchester, I knew I would get the oppurtunity to take a new outfit or two for a spin. I had a 10STORE dress just dying to be worn Рand I myself, desperate for some fancy cocktails. 

Sunset by Australasia would be the perfect place. So, I slipped into the floral and frill long sleeve dress and sought out some frozen Prosecco sorbet blends.

This A-line mini cocktail dress is fabulous, with a bold green colour and multi floral print, embellished with pink and white flowers throughout.

So, what did I think of the floral and frill long sleeve dress?

It’s all in the details in this pretty long sleeve dress, which features a round neckline, back button with keyhole cut out, button cuffs.

The best part? Its V-panel frill front and hem, alongside its tie wraparound waist. What I love, is the frill detail is rather subtle, yet manages to really bring the dress to life.

10STORE offers branded clothing at £10 or less, they sell high street brands (undisclosed) and offer quality clothing at super affordable prices.

They even have an extra 20 per cent off clearance items at the moment using code SALE20 here.

What do you think of the floral and frill dress from 10STORE? What is your go to cocktail dress?

Blue tartan check trousers Topshop | The LDN Gal

Boohoo Oversized Shirt – Topshop Trousers – Zara Heeled Boots

OOTD: Blue Tartan Check Trousers with Topshop

I have to admit, this weekend gone was fabulous minus the little bit of drizzle. Me and the better half finally got some quality time together and decided to go exploring in Oxford for the Oxford Open Doors event.

Oxford Open Doors is an annual event that allows people access to many an Oxford University treasure across the city, with free entry to its many beautiful buildings.

We decided to take a stroll through Christ Church, enjoying the cathedral, Tom Quad and great hall –¬†with many a lovely photo opportunity.¬†

So, what did I think of the blue tartan check trousers?

This weekend also allowed me the perfect opportunity to embrace my Summer-meets-Autumn wardrobe with these oh so gorgeous Topshop blue tartan check trousers.

I love these trousers for three main reasons – any many more, let’s be honest. One, they are vibrant as, the blue stands out beautifully against the contrasting red and yellow. Two, they are high waisted and thus super cosy and a flattering fit. Three, tartan – it’s Autumn, so tartan!¬†

Teamed with a Boohoo oversized shirt and Zara heeled boots, this OOTD defines bright and bold meets smart-casusal. It is perfect dressed down in the day or up at night. These blue tartan check trousers are an all-day transitional dream.

What do you think of these blue tartan check trousers from Topshop? What’s in your autumn wardrobe?¬†

The Diamond Store 9 Carot Gold Emerald Earrings UK | The LDN Gal

Why every girl needs emerald earrings

What girl doesn’t love gemstones and a bit of sparkle?

Let’s face it, anything that glimmers is a girl’s best friend and I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of emerald earrings from The Diamond Store.

Of late, colourful gemstones have been increasing in popularity, gracing red carpets, parties and publications globally. So, here is every reason why every girl needs a pair of emerald earrings.

The history of emeralds

Emeralds are celebrated for their vivid colour and contextual meanings, having been worn since ancient times, emeralds were introduced to Europe in the 1500s.

As expected, green connotes nature and the emerald is believed to encourage a myriad of enhancing properties including balance, fertility, growth, healing and peace. The precious gemstone therefore looks after your mental, physical and spiritual well being.

Not only is their meaning so special Рand the emerald so unique Рbut these bold and bright gemstones add a touch of class and sophistication to any outfit, alongside a splash of calming colour.

Let’s face it, diamonds¬†may be a girl’s best friend but emeralds are her partner-in-crime.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery? Do you prefer emeralds to diamonds or vice-versa?
