If you’ve been around here for a while you’ll know that I am a HUGE jewellery lover. For as long as I can remember I have been a magpie to all things shiny, collecting jewellery (albeit some cheap and cheerful) from a young age, so I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to styling up jewellery pieces. I was actually quite amazed how after months of living in lockdown loungewear how much more ‘me’ I felt putting my jewellery on everyday; for something so small it holds an amazing power!
Although my love of jewellery has never feigned, my tastes have changed massively over the years – from being an exclusively silver girl back in the day before dabbling in the rose gold trend when it exploded in 2012, before ending up firmly as a gold wearer in more recent years. However after finding myself very firmly in the gold camp, I recently starting dabbling in more mixed metals – once shied away from the fear of having to be in either a silver or gold gal – I’ve realised that mixing metals can actually look pretty cool! Having previously shared my favourite brands for dainty gold jewellery, I thought it was time to share a unisex brand specialising in more chunky timeless offerings, perfect for those more in the silver or rose gold camp or if like me you’d like to try mixing and matching your pieces.
“The out of the box, unconventional and paradoxical features of each piece is designed to be impactful and worn with a purpose.”
Let me introduce you to the Duailty +J Collection from KLASSE14 – a collection designed to symbolise who we are as human beings. KLASSE14’s mission is about going the extra mile to create bold, disruptive and fashion-forward accessories that empowers self-expression, ”We make ordinary days extraordinary.”
Below I have styled some pieces from the latest drop. I hope you like it and it inspires you to check out the collection and maybe even to play around with different metals in your own collection. The collection is adorned with chunky unisex pieces that will instantly update your wardrobe at an affordable price point so I would urge you to check it out.
The thing I love most about this collection is that everything can be worn together. I think mixing metals is not something we should shy away from – although hard to unlearn the ingrained rules of one or the other – I think when layered up, mixing metals can look totally effortless. These pieces lend themself so well to being worn together as the tones of the Rose Gold and Silver plating compliment each other perfectly.
“The Chained Ring is intricately designed to be composed of pure, solid metal, while breaking in the middle to feature chain-like metal. Its unconventional design defies boundaries.”
I think the Duality Chained rings have to be my favourite pieces from the collection, you can’t beat a statement ring in my opinion! I love the chunky androgynous style – you could even wear one ring and have your partner wear the other – kind of like a much more subtle Britney & Justin moment for 2021.
“Styled to be the emblem of contradiction, the Half Ring represents the need for two opposing halves to come together, incomplete without the other. The black onyx stone at the top of the ring symbolizes courage and power.”
I love how these rings looked when stacked together but they would look equally as effective on their own.
“An eye-catching classic, the Chain2Chain bracelet presents a simple center piece in the middle of the bracelet’s striking chain design.”
I’ve been realllly enjoying wearing bracelets again recently. Especially moving into knit season, layering needn’t just be for clothes! Layering up bracelets is a nice way to feel a bit more dressy when your outfit is more minimal.
One of the things I love about the collection is the ability it has to dress up any outfit. A simple suit is elevated by mixing the chunky rings and a colour pop with the watch, giving the look a very different feel to the more dainty, feminine options that you could lean towards when wearing masculine tailoring.
