My sister's 40th birthday is in July and I'd really like to buy her a piece of jewellery to keep. She was going to have a party but looks like that might not be possible.

She likes to try to buy from independents rather than chains. She has a boho/ hippy kind of style with bright colours her colouring suits warm tones so was thinking good day. She suits & prefers more bold/ chunky pieces rather than delicate.

Any ideas would be great I'm then going to show her a load and get her to pick so we have a list grin

Budget is about £50-100 but could stretch to more.

Should have said if something was £50 I'd buy 2 items to make it up to £100.

Bump with screenshots of what she likes only problem is the company is in Israel so bit worried it won't arrive for ages 🤦‍♀️

Ooh that's hard.

I love the muru jewellery constellation necklaces for special birthdays but they are gold vermeil.

Chlobo is lovely but more expensive. If she is into boho looks maybe try Etsy it not on the high street for more independent brands.

I also love the Annie Haak stacking bracelets sets but again gold vermeil I think but lovely.

Thanks @MerlinsButler she'd like some Annie Haak I want to get something I know she'll love which is making me confused 😂

Annie Haak is lovely I think especially for a special birthday. I'm sure you will find something she loves. It's nice too that she can always add to the pieces in the future. Good luck.

I bought my sister a Tiffany infinity necklace for her 50th. It means a continuous connection. It did cost around £150.

I got the biggest gold hoops I've ever seen for my 40th of my sister. I love them!

This necklace reminds me of the pictures you’ve posted, and they have other pieces in the same style. I realise Missoma is hardly an independent brand though!

Sickoffamilydrama Sun 24-May-20 20:45:13

That's pretty thanks @KensalGreen

This small, independent does some beautiful pieces. I'm eyeing up some hoops from here.
