Too often, London feels like this big hub of trends, cultures and new creations, and unless you really know your stuff, you will get lost in this fashion jungle. But lucky for you, we know our stuff, and would love to share a few secrets with you about what you should be wearing this summer when it comes down to fashion jewellery, because after all, no festival, party or day out can really be complete without a bit of accessorizing with the right stuff.
Skulls, spikes and neons are getting the biggest buzz this year. Punk rock has once again re-emerged through fashion, and has brought us some pretty cool concepts to play with yet again. There is nothing more London than a rock chick, so just get with it!
What makes this jewellery trend so London?
Following the lead of first-wave British punk bands, in the late 1970s second-wave units like Cockney Rejects, Angelic Upstarts and The Exploited, sought to realign punk rock with a working class, street-level following.For that purpose, they believed, the music needed to stay "accessible and unpretentious", in the words of music historian Simon Reynolds. Their style was originally called "real punk" or street punk; Sounds journalist Garry Bushell is credited with labelling the genre Oi! in 1980. The name is partly derived from the Cockney Rejects' habit of shouting "Oi! Oi! Oi!" before each song, instead of the time-honored "1,2,3,4!"Oi! bands' lyrics sought to reflect the harsh realities of living in Margaret Thatcher's Britain in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Punk bands gave young British people a voice, a way to rebel, and when these trends come back around, it's always nice to know what they're all about. Now you can also celebrate the movement, and not just stand around looking amazing!
Below are just some of the Punk Rock jewellery items we picked from our gigantic selection, just to give you some inspiration. And as always, if something catches your eye, all you need to do is click the image of your desired accessory to view it at more angles.

Even though the weather outside is somewhat frightful at the moment, regardless of the fact that as of this week it is officially Spring, leading fashion houses and the high street alike are turning their attention to the upcoming spring/summer season. I want to direct your attention to one of the big upcoming colour trends for next season – the use of neons, fluorescent and altogether more vibrant colours.
When I think of neon I think vibrant, eye catching colour - it doesnt really matter if you're a lover or a hater of it, this fluorescent trend is here to stay. To be fair it never fully left, as designers and the highstreet alike have been glowing since its appearance in Summer 2012. Neons were seen in the Autumn/ Winter collections on jacket trimmings, and on warm accessories, and of course through statement jewellery and shoes, really taking it's throne for this Spring and Summer.
Pairing neon jewellery with neutral clothing is simply a match made in fashionista heaven, and jewellery is the perfect stepping stone if you’re ready to move with this trend. Choosing to wear just one piece of neon jewellery with a neutral color palette allows the bright colour to be the true focus of your look. Don't over-do the neon, make sure you are creating a bold, yet still relatively tame look, nobody wants to look like an 80s rave!
Obviously, you can choose any neon colour your heart and soul desire, but try not to wear too many hues at the time. Oranges and pinks work together, and yellows and greens, but tread carefully, mixing yellow and pink for example can look pretty intense! Accessorize your neon jewellery with a glitzy skull jewellery, gold statement rings and some cool sunglasses for a cool, summery look.
Choosing to downplay the neon in your look can also be a good idea, meaning that rather than highlighting a bright neon piece of jewellery with neutral clothing, you instead style yourself with other bold clothing and accessories. This makes the neon accessory just one small element of the outfit, when done right this looks super-trendy, but not too over-the-top. Black and neon are total opposites in the color world, but they work so well when paired together. Wearing bright neon with sleek black clothing and accessories not only creates fantastic contrast, however they really work together, making for a daring look that’s sure to get you lots of attention.
As you can imagine, we have sooooooooooooooo many gorgeous neon bits for you to wear, but here are our top three (for now, as the collection is constantly expanding), and just like always, you can view more angles, measurements and prices of each item by simply clicking on the image. Enjoy your neons!
