Bridget Wheatley’s shop on Cowley Street in Oxford is a veritable treasure trove of exotic jewels. Beautifully simple in design, her jewellery is charming because of its imperfections; her charm pendants have rough edges and her pearl inserts are organically shaped. But whilst her flat heart necklaces and beaten-up gold hoop earring are undeniably delectable, it’s her chunky, engraved rings that are the real stars of the show; we say get several and stack em’ high.
The shop might be a bit of a schlep for Londoners, but luckily her designs are available at the click of a button from www.bridgetwheatley.com.
