One of our favourite trends to take off recently is jewellery stacking — we’re talking layering necklaces, ear curation, assembling rings and styling multiple bracelets. Not only does it give us the chance to experiment with more of our favourite pieces, but it also allows us to support local Australian Jewellery brands and designers.
You can find yourself a little bit of everything from nostalgic pendant necklaces, unique engagement rings, statement earrings and everyday essentials. Some of them even offer to create bespoke pieces like engagement rings, wedding bands and family heirlooms that are worth spending your hard-earned dosh on.
