River Island jewellery: Whoever said that less is more?

Hi guys,
This week I have been as busy as a beaver working on a jewellery feature for one of the mags I freelance for. And whilst trawling through press images looking for suitable pieces, I kept being drawn back to the jewellery shots from River Island's A/W campaign:

Bold, brash, in your face and over the top. Frankly, it's everything I look for when I'm looking for jewellery. I love River Island: it is one of my favourite high street stores, and the shop I ultimately got my new winter coat from (outfit post coming soon!) Some accuse them of over-embellishing sometimes, but I think that's part of the reason I like them so much. As far as I'm concerned, whoever said less is more was very very wrong!

With that in mind, I headed over to the River Island website to pick out and share my favourite pieces from their new season jewellery drop. And anything delicate need not apply!

Silver and gold spike and crystal cuff, £25
Cream pearl bow collar, £25

Gold door knocker earrings, £6
Multi coloured print chain hand harness, £18
Clock pendant necklace, £15
Gold tone ring stack, £8 
Blue cupid jewel brooch, £10

What do you think of the jewellery from River Island? Is it a high street store you would head to if you needed new costume bling, and if not, which high street stores do you prefer?

Love Tor x

It's all fab, I love that they're keeping studs and skulls on the go but have combined that with pears and bling to make it more suitable for the time of year. That pearl collar will be amazing at Christmas.

I really love the photo of the model, it's all impeccable!

Now, I'm not usually a fan of really big jewellery but I think I may have been converted! Love the brooch and collar - a trip to River Island may be in order x

Very interesting information about jewelry! Perfect just what I was searching for! If you could choose one characteristic that would get you through life, choose a sense of humor.

Absolutely love the shoulder piece on the model, however I feel it is on top of a darker top/ dress, it will be even better. I hardly ever buy anything jewellery from RI, may have to take a look next time when I go shopping!
