As I've gotten older my appreciation for quality over quantity has grown too, in all aspects of life. At the age of 27 I've come to surround myself with a few wonderful friends rather than lots of average ones, I've realised that one bottle of exceptionally good wine is better than lots of whatever's cheapest in Tesco (that, and I can no longer handle the hangovers) and when it comes to buying new pieces for my wardrobe I only go for those that I know are going to last and I'll love for years to come. 

This view may come from working in luxury fashion where I can see first-hand the value of buying into quality pieces rather than the throwaway fashion that increasingly dominates the British high street, or it may come from a desire to consume less and appreciate more. Either way, it's the modern, versatile classics that I'm drawn to again and again and the same applies to jewellery. 

That's why the Thomas Sabo collection of stainless steel and silver watches and jewellery appeals to me so much. Clean, classic pieces that I know I can wear with oversized knitwear (like here), with an LBD come Christmas party season or with tailoring when I need to feel smart. I teamed up with the brand to pick some of my favourite pieces, with this men's watch from the Spirit Watches collection and these layered, chunky silver rings crying out to me most.  

I love how big the size of this watch face is without being too bulky, while mixing the larger ring with a slightly more delicate one (this particular style is from the Together by Thomas Sabo collection – look closely as you’ll see it says ‘Together Forever’...perfect for an extra special Christmas gift) is a nice balance of masculine meets feminine style (my favourite).
