Do celebrities influence the jewellery we buy?
This entry was posted on May 10 2011.
After seeing a picture of Rihanna wearing the gorgeous Bjorg Spine bangle at Nivea's 100th anniversary bash, I got to thinking, do celebs influence our style when it comes to jewellery?
It is a well known fact that celebrities such as Dannii Minogue, Fern Cotton, Cherly Cole and even the newly wed Dutchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) have a huge impact on what we wear. Sales of sapphire engagement rings more than tripled after Wills and Kate announced their engagement and the dress Kate wore for thier engagement pictures sold out quickly.
But when it comes to jewellery do we like to wear the same jewellery as our favourite celebrities or do we like to take a little of thier style and add our own finishing touches? When Katy Perry was announced as ambassador for Thomas Sabo were you reaching for your purse to buy the newest piece?
Here we have Sheridan Smith with her Steven Harkin 'Kylie' clutch bag which was named after the one and only Kylie Minogue who owns the bag in red patent. Do you think Sheridan bought it because of it's celebrity status?
Personally I like to choose my jewellery and accessories because I love the feel, finish or designer. It may be in the same style as one of the big style icons has worn but not the exact piece. Therefore I can add my own twist and match several pieces from different ranges and/or designers together.
For example I love to wear my Sphere Of Life charm bracelet everyday, sometimes teamed with a Sphere Of Life necklace, sometimes with a Tina Lilienthal (who is loved by loads of celebs including Davina McCall!) cherry necklace or if I am heading out I will dress it up with a bit of sparkle!
I love to check out the magazines to see the latest style do's and don'ts but when it comes to choosing what I wear I love to be individual. I may have some pieces that are also owned by celebs but I have chosen them beacuase I love them for their design not because of who I have seen wearing them!
