Once upon a time fast fashion was confided to ready to wear rails, but with more and more of our favourite fashion designers launching accessory lines, our jewellery is becoming as disposable as our seasonable wardrobes. If trend inspired jewellery leaves you cold, this timeless oceana ring by Astley Clarke’s colour collection is the perfect antidote.
Though classic, the simplistic design can’t help but verge on the predictable. The vivid green chrysoprase and turquoise stones are incredibly beautiful yet their shimmering ocean inspired colours seem staid in their precise and polished rose cut, making them look a little austere against their rigid and yellow gold setting.
The ring comes as two separate rings, one adorned with each stone and they can be intertwined or separated according to your mood.
Overall verdict? It has a kind of timeless appeal that makes it a gorgeous piece that promises to endure long after the passing trends have been forgotten.
Don’t try to wear this ring as a fashion accessory, instead love it for what it is; an elegant and traditional piece. Wear it to complement a simple classic outfit or add a touch of femininity to an otherwise formal business or office look.
