When your every waking move is a carefully curated, instagrammable tableau, it’s of utmost importance to pay extra attention to the finishing touches. Luckily, this season’s dramatic jewellery is the perfect accompaniment for each mise-en-scène. From glittering diamonds to super-future Perspex, this is how to complete the picture.

Coffee with a side of art-rocks
What better to go with your single-origin hand-roasted artisan espresso than Marni’s haute-artisan adornments? Layer them up with gusto for a richer, more complex flavour.

Sushi with a side of perspex
A power lunch deserves a power-pop of colour, and Stella McCartney’s Perspex rocks pack enough punch for any lunchtime pow-wow. Add Sarah Angold’s ravey plastic for extra bite.

Tea with a side of diamonds
Bling is best with a little tongue-in-cheek, which is why we love Rosa de la Cruz’s playful pieces, matched with Shourouk’s oh-so-OTT rhinestones and – this season’s absolute must-have – vegan peanut butter cups from artisan chocolatier Eat Chic.

Champagne with a side of gold
When the clock strikes Champagne o’clock, break out the plunging necklines and complement the bubbles with sculpted golden jewels. Eshvi’s choker is our tip for neckpiece of the season.
