Don't get us wrong, we still love a bit of oversized jewellery like that made by local designers like Pichulik and Githan Coopoo but we're also keen to switch to a softer and lighter side for this season.

It has become close to impossible to resist delicate gold spoils so if you haven’t already, now is a great time to sift through your existing collection for fine gold treasures or maybe even pay a visit to your mother’s vintage stash.

If you’re lucky enough to score a pendant on a golden chain, ring or jewel encrusted bangle to flaunt or to balance an overpowering print, you’ve won!

Bare in mind however that switching needn’t mean ditching. Hang tightly to your chunky jewels for the seasons to come but for now, it’s time to create magic with delicate pieces.

This season it's all about geometric shaped metallics, open cut cuffs and chokers, ageless oversized hoop earrings as well as layered gold medallion chains.

Bracelets, bangles and cuffs

Opt for chic styling with classic large faced timepieces and small bracelet combinations that are sure to make your arm candy collection the most enviable.
