  • Shop the trend: Metal Mania

    From sparkling studs to sumptuous jewel bright sheens, metallic tones are one of the hottest looks of the Spring/Summer 2013 season - think gold foil jackets, shiny silver trousers and dresses which look as though they've been made out of Quality Street wrappers. As you may have guessed, here at Accessories Online, we're not adverse to a bit of bling, so we're absolutely loving this trend. Here's three pieces from our collection that would go perfectly with any marvellous metallic look.

    Fiona Paxton Rose Necklace in Oxidised Silver

    We're totally head-over-heels for this Fiona Paxton Rose Necklace in Oxidised Silver (?175.00). Comprising of three circular cabochons, lengths of draped herringbone chain and tiny embedded jewels, it's a real statement piece that would make a stunning addition to any outfit. We'd pair it with a bright jewel-toned dress and a slash of red lipstick.

    Dyrberg Kern Ariane Crystal Rocks Ring in Shiny Gold

    Studs and sparkles are the perfect accompaniment for this trend. Their toughness provides a nice edge to even the most feminine of outfits. This Dyrberg Kern Ariane Crystal Rocks Ring in Shiny Gold (?79.00) is a great example of this. Intensely sparkly and seriously badass, it's one ring you that you definitely don't want to mess with!

    Mawi Double Spike and Crystal Hook Earrings in Rose Gold

    We're sure we're not alone in thinking that these Mawi Double Spike and Crystal Hook Earrings in Rose Gold (?160.00) look like something that Rihanna would wear for a night out on the town. We'd pair these with a chic metallic bomber jacket, a crop top, turned up jeans and a great pair of heels for a super-hot urban look.

  • Pretty Patterned Pieces to add Pizazz to your A/W 2012

    One of the hottest jewellery trends for Autumn-Winter this year is patterned jewellery - ?think big, bold chunky pieces embellished with dazzling jewels and intricate beadwork. Quite a few of our favourite designers have taken this concept and run with it this season, creating beautiful one of a kind items which would add a dash of pizazz to any dull Winter outfit.

    Tatty Devine Paisley Rose BroochThis Tatty Devine Paisley Rose Brooch?(?66.00)?celebrates pretty paisley patterns. It’s teeming with bright jewel colours, and also features gold ink detailing and a rose with a crystal magenta bud hidden at its heart. It’s a real statement piece, and would be perfect pinned to a thick Winter scarf, or buttoned up shirt.

    Fiona Paxton Hana Collar in Gunmetal and Purple

    Fiona Paxton’s current collection is another example of beaded jewellery at its most elegant. We adore this Hana Collar in Gunmetal and Purple (?200.00). Made up of mixed chains shot through with bright neon colours, it drapes beautifully over anything you choose to team it with - be it a little black dress or a simple cotton t-shirt.

    Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Head and Crystal Pendant in Hematite

    We’ve spoken before about our love of Mawi, and their Neon Spiked Panther Head and Crystal Pendant in Hematite (?243.00) is truly gorgeous. It looks like the kind of necklace which would be worn by a warrior queen, and the neon pink and yellow details lend it a modern edginess. This is what you wear when you want to be noticed.

    Bibi Bijoux Multicoloured Hand Beaded Bracelet

    Winter isn’t exactly a season known for its colours. So why not add a pop of colour to a grey November day by wearing this Bibi Bijoux Multi Coloured Hand Beaded Bracelet (?109.95) around your wrist? Bright and beautiful, it’s a splash of Summer, and puts us in mind of beaches and sunshine.

    Ti Sento Sterling Silver Mini Ball Stud Earrings

    These Ti Sento Sterling Silver Mini Ball stud earrings (?59.95) remind us of little disco balls. Small, smooth and sublimely shiny, they’re just the thing if you fancy popping a bit of bling in your ears this October.

  • Six of the Best: Rose Gold jewellery

    Rose Gold is very on trend at the moment, and with good reason. Not only does it put people in mind of warm glows and sunkissed Summer days, but it suits practically every skin tone - from pale Celtic complexions to bronzed poolside tans. ?Some of our favourite designers are creating some amazing signature pieces in this metal this season. Here's six of our favourite picks from our collection.

    I'm not sure if it's the spikes, the dash of pink or the fact that I just really love big cats, but I am totally head-over-heels for this?Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Ring in Rose Gold (?215.00).?Created in commemoration of Mawi's 10 year anniversary, it manages to combine style with the right amount of 'don't mess with me' toughness. ?The hint of a sparkle comes from the row of Swarovski crystals embedded within it, making it the blingiest and most bad ass accessory in town.

    Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Head and Crystal Pendant in Rose Gold

    The Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Head and Crystal Pendant in Rose Gold (?243.00) is equally stunning. There's a real Art Deco feel to this piece, giving it the look of something which would be worn by a 1930s Hollywood siren for a night on the tiles. Forget Autumn/Winter, this is a necklace which could be worn during any season - a real statement piece which makes a stylish, colourful impact.

    There's something very British about this Alex Monroe Rose Gold Plated Baby Shrimp Necklace (?109.95). Unique, quirky and utterly charming, it comes from the designer's Best of British collection, and was inspired by his memories of his childhood. It's just the thing for a windswept seaside afternoon tea filled with lashings of ginger beer and thick slices of bread and butter.

    I'm not sure if it's the hint of Autumn in the air, or the fact that the nights are drawing in, but I'm already planning this year's Halloween outfit (yes, I know it's a bit early). These amazing Wildfox Skeleton Earrings in Rose Gold (?49.95) will definitely be making an appearance. Not only are their grinning faces utterly ghoulish, but each of their bodyparts are also individually articulated, meaning that they wiggle and jive in rhythm with your walk.

    Dogeared Triple Karma Ring Necklace in Rose GoldIf you're looking for something slightly less sinister, then this Dogeared Triple Karma Ring Necklace in Rose Gold (?56.95) is full of warmth and good vibes. The three rings symbolise three different types of karma - past, present and future. While wearing this might not help you to win the lottery, it may make you feel slightly more well inclined towards that annoying person sat next to you on the bus.

    Dyrberg Kern Cone/B Crystal Tennis Bracelet in Rose Gold

    This Dyrberg Kern Cone/B Crystal Tennis Bracelet in Rose Gold (?79.00) is brimming with elegance. It's slim, dainty and set with Swavovski crystals. It's just the thing to wear with a little black dress, and looks brilliant when paired with one of the chunkier bracelets from the same collection.?
