Marie Claire's inside scoop on the best brands to go to for a bit of bling

When it comes to finishing touches, there's no questioning that this season it's all about the finer details. Standout, sparkling bling was the way to go last year, but this time round sophisticated metals are doing all the talking. From barely-there fine gold chains to longer-length 70s-inspired pendants and sleek torque chokers, it seems SS15 has a necklace style to suit every taste.

Looking to up your ring game? Take your pick from stackable, spindly gold bands, tiny smashed diamonds set in rose-gold surrounds and achingly cool signet rings that we reckon Thelma and Louise would be proud of.

For an earring update, we've spotted a massive lean toward clean and linear Kandinsky- inspired shapes, where no triangle, circle or square is off limits.

If delicate jewels and polished metals don't really suit your style (we appreciate that for some of you waving goodbye to J Crew-alike statement necklaces is too much to bear) then make the sartorial switch to brightly coloured cut-stone in exaggerated 3D shapes. Newcomer brand ESHVI are flying the flag this season for out-there adornment.

Ear jackets and cuffs aren't going anywhere for summer, but this season we can report that angular shapes rule. Check out exciting new brands HALL and Tada & Toy for their fresh take.

Packing for holiday? Exotic jewellery always works and if you're embracing the trend for all things white with your clothes, you need goddess gold bands with flashes of colour ? check out the exciting collection at Gas Bijoux.
