We’re still obsessed with shell jewellery and we’re buying ALL of these

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 jewellery. The likes of Pandora Sykes, Monikh and Dutch blogger Lizzy Vdligt have been draping themselves in shells, adorned with gold for that extra luxe factor.

Niche jewellery brands like Dutch shop Anna + Nina, French designer Elise Tsikis and German brand Wald have hit that sweet spot between vintage and contemporary, providing us with the perfect holiday-worthy pieces to elevate even the most basic of outfits, like a white t-shirt and cropped jeans. They’re also the perfect finishing touch to a pastel trouser suit or floral dress for a wedding.
