A colleague of mine has a selection of elegant stud earrings she was given as a present years ago that she chooses from every day to look more polished in work. Six different earrings, all quite simple, but really help make her look pulled together.
I would love something similar, and am tempted to make it my Christmas present, but can't think where to look. Would be very much on a budget - so no more than £80 total, but ideally less than that - but don't want something from accessorize or similar as I think you can tell and would like them to last. If that amount only got me 3 pairs that would be fine but all the 'nice' elegant studs I see seem to cost that on their own.
Any thoughts or ideas where to look? I'm not a big jewellery person so drawing a blank.
I've started wearing studs again and have found some nice plain hammered silver ones trawling notonthehighstreet - lots of independent jewellers. Also have some black baroque pearl ones from a friend who makes jewellery, a bargain at £10! I'm interested in some with semiprecious stones as well.
Hoping to get some Linda Mcdonald ones for Christmas.
