This jewellery trend is definitive proof that mermaids are cool AF

Who knew Ariel was such an icon?

There’s no denying the influence of fairytale icons in our sartorial choices. But while we appreciate the more obvious Disney t-shirts, we generally prefer a more subtle approach.

Which is why the latest jewellery craze to take over Instagram is right up our street. You could say it’s more or less inspired by the Little Mermaid, as it involves shell-shaped statement earrings. The likes of Pandora Sykes and Dutch blogger Lizzy Vdligt are already converts, and we’re so there for it.

The Venus shell earrings are part of the Stranger Tides collection by Dutch jewellery brand Anna + Nina, and come in both gold and silver plated and hit that sweet spot between vintage and contemporary, making them ideal to elevate the most basic of outfits, like a white t-shirt and cropped jeans.

It’s also the perfect finishing touch to a pastel trouser suit or floral dress for a wedding.

They are prices at a reasonable £118, plus you’ve got the added bonus that the brand is relatively niche, so you’ll be ahead of the style game here. And really, can you put a price on that? Ariel wouldn’t.
