Buckley London is a jewellery company founded in 1989 by Adrian Buckley, with one main goal in mind – to create the best quality fashion and costume jewellery at affordable and competitive prices. On sale at over 600 retailers, as well as online, Buckley London’s products are as accessible as they are beautiful. New collections are released fairly regularly, and although you may not be familiar with the brand already, it’s likely you will have seen some pictures on social media around Remembrance Day of some gorgeous poppy jewellery and brooches, which came from the gorgeous poppy collection.
Buckley’s latest collection is The Carnaby Collection, a selection of woven mesh bracelets and tassel charm pendants, available in a variety of rose, gold, or silver tones, each containing a semi-precious gem at its centre. They are designed so that they can be worn layered up and so appear unique to the wearer; I particularly like mixing different metals so I usually wear my gold mesh bracelets alongside my silver Pandora bangles and rings.
I have annoyingly slim wrists which means that most shop-bought bangles and bracelets that come in one size only will never fit me. My Pandora bracelet is in the smallest size and even then is on the big side for me. Fortunately, Buckley’s bracelets are elasticated and therefore suitable for any wrist size; I did wonder whether an elasticated bracelet would compromise on the quality of the product, but I’m please to report that’s not the case, and thanks to the mesh design you can’t actually tell when the bracelets are being stretched.
I love how these bracelets look together, although with just two bracelets the stones themselves appear to keep spinning around and disappear; with a combination of five or six bracelets these would look absolutely beautiful. The bracelets retail at £20 each, which may seem a little on the steep side for pieces of costume jewellery, but these are great quality and fortunately are part of the 3 for 2 mix and match bracelet offer.
A lovely little touch is the little tags attached to the bracelet which explain the meaning behind the semi-precious stones; for instance, turquoise is a symbol of friendship, giving positivity and good fortune, whereas mother of pearl is said to bring feelings of well-being and relaxation. These would make great gifts if you’re looking for something a little extra special with a nice thought behind it.
