I'm sure it hasn't slipped anyone's mind that Valentine's Day is fast-approaching (not that I go crazy with it myself or anything!). Jewellery is always a winner as a Valentine's present but I think it can be hard to find somewhere that sells a great mixture of brands at reasonable prices; other than maybe Argos - though you won't score any points for buying us Elizabeth Duke, boys!
Step forward, Argento Jewellery; a site I've recently been introduced to. As well as selling big brands like Thomas Sabo, Pandora and Links of London, they also have a great range of lesser-known designers to discover.
Argento recently sent me a blogger 'Valentine's Box' which was really sweet and has introduced me to my new favourite affordable jewellery brand, August Woods.
In my blogger box, I got a selfie stick (how did I live life without one before?), some tanning mousse by Vita Liberata and the necklace below by August Woods.
The necklace is actually probably a little too feminine for my tastes (not really one for flowery jewellery), however there are some amazing August Woods pieces on the Argento site, which is an exclusive brand. In particular, I love these Gold and Silver Rope Hoop Earrings and this amazing Ruby Red Druzy Stone Necklace, which is only £5 in their sale! The brand seems to have an abundance of lovely rose gold jewellery too, like my necklace above.
In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I've picked out my top four gift ideas for the big day. I am completely in love with the Olivia Burton watch, anyone buying?
Clockwise from top left: Olivia Burton Big Dial Gold Watch, £95 // Argento Rose Gold Amethyst Necklace, £60 // Argento Oval Amethyst Ring, £30 // August Woods Rose Gold Hearts Bangle, £12
As you can see above, Argento have their own brand which I feel is incredible value. There's loads of vintage-inspired jewellery featuring coloured stones in the range.
If you've seen anything you like in my picks as a present for someone else or just a gift for yourself, there's currently an offer online to receive a free heart bracelet when you spend over £50.
You can also get an exclusive 20% discount by using LOVE20 at the checkout!
