It’s true that most fashion lovers dress to suit their mood, but jewellery flips that notion on its elegant head. More than any other fashion-related item, the fine jewellery you put on every day literally transfers feelings, memories and emotion, by its own kind of exquisite osmosis.

It’s indulgent – even fun – to have statement pieces for special occasions, but for the most part, the jewellery a woman chooses to wear over and over is an insight into herself. Is it minimalist and classic, layered and bohemian, perhaps cheeky and subversive? Look at the metal-wear she’s donned that day and odds are you’ll know the status of her current mood.
