For me 2017 has been the year of jewellery.  I have indulged in it more than ever.  The older I’ve got, the more I appreciate the meaning behind it and how sentimental it is.

Recently I’ve come to learn jewellery is the best gift you can buy yourself.  More often than not, I think jewellery is one of those things we wait to receive from loved ones but I’m a firm believer if you want it, love it and deserve it, then why not buy it?



Jewellery is a marker of our achievements and we should celebrate them by treating ourselves to something sparkly!  After all we should all be our own biggest cheerleaders.



Hurley Burley is an online boutique specialising in unique and beautiful pieces which are perfectly priced.  One of the things which really stood out to me, is not only their wonderful eye for design, but also their focus on complimentary personalisation.

The only thing better than a piece of jewellery, is one which has been personalised.  Having either a date, place or phrase engraved is the perfect way of commemorating a special event.



I’m wearing two rose gold necklaces from Hurley Burley which I’ve layered.  In my book, when it comes to something this beautiful, the more the better!  Both pieces are stunning but there is one which makes my heart flutter that little bit more.  The pendent with the bigger star which hangs slightly longer has a single diamond inlayed into it.  Yes, that’s right, a real diamond!



Nothing screams girl boss more than buying your own diamonds.  Thankfully you don’t have to be Oprah or Beyoncé to treat yourself to one, as it’s surprisingly purse friendly.  It’s £45 and available in sterling silver, rose gold or yellow gold.  As if that isn’t enough you can also use promo code NEWDRESS15 to receive an additional 15% off.



Although I’m all about treating yourself, with Christmas not that far away (sorry to mention the dreaded C-word already!) this is a great opportunity to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones.  Who doesn’t dream of receiving diamonds?!  With the code NEWDRESS15 giving you an extra 15%, plus complimentary shipping, it really is a no brainer!  To my darling friends who are all incredible girl bosses, I hate to ruin it, but this is what you will all be getting under the tree from me this year.



Plus, it’s worth noting all Hurley Burley’s jewellery arrives beautifully gift wrapped, so you don’t even need to worry about wrapping paper and fighting with the sellotape dispenser!  Hurrah!



I am wearing the Rose Gold Set Diamond Star necklace (not online yet but will be soon – see other diamond set necklaces HERE) and the Layered Cubic Zirconia Rose Gold Star necklace (find it HERE).  If you are tempted for yourself or want to get your festive shopping done early don’t forget to use promo code NEWDRESS15 to save yourself some pennies.



Thank you to Hurley Burley for sponsoring this post.  All thoughts, opinions and beliefs that every girl boss deserves diamonds remain my own.

    I’m an accessories girl and my favorite accessory is jewelry. So every year is a jewelry year for me. I usually prefer that people do not buy me jewelry because I usually end up disliking what they pick out for me. So I always buy it for myself.

    • thatnewd November 5, 2017 / 8:14 pm

      I totally agree about other people buying you jewellery, it can be super risky as there’s a high chance you won’t like it xx

  8. Kim November 2, 2017 / 3:46 pm

    Such dainty and elegant pieces! LOVE it! I used to adore jewellery so much when I was a bit younger, but I seem to only opt for dainty, elegant bits now, and only in the summer. I have no idea why I went off it. I go through phases. But you can definitely buy yourself jewellery, girl power!
