When it comes to accessories, many of us jump on to fast-fashion options or major retailers that offer us quick buys. However, we often overlook our very own local jewellery retailers as options for gorgeous and unique styles that are just as affordable!
That’s why we’ve rounded up some of our favourite local jewellery brands that’ll have you covered. There are designs for the minimalist-lovers, on-trend fashionistas and even for the girls who love a little extra bling, so keep reading to discover the 8 local jewellery brands you need to add to your shopping cart!
Curated Creations believes that a pair of earrings can subtly add a touch of flair and character. Founded just this year in 2018, the team carefully handpicks and curates each design that they have available on site.
The shop features more minimalist styles that often play with colours and textures of different materials, making sure that there’s something for everyone. We’re personally loving the simple knot detail gold hoops which are both elegant and super versatile!
The Ordinary Co.
The Ordinary Co. launched in 2014 to help those of us who just can’t resist switching up our accessories on the daily. The brand describes the Ordinary girl as simple yet sophisticated, and it reflects in their array of accessories which span from minimalist to statement pieces.
The Ordinary Co. understands that accessorising is for everyone, and it shows in their affordable range of products!

This local jewellery brand is for the woman who loves pieces with a timeless elegance and style.
