My Style: Mixing up the metals with Cred Jewellery


When I was younger, I was very much a silver-only kind of a jewellery gal. BIG earrings, chunky necklaces and lots and lots of thick, silver rings.

I’m not entirely sure when the seismic shift occured, but in the past ten years – aside from buying wedding rings and an interlude of searching eBay for Marni necklaces – I’ve only worn gold.

Now I mix and match with abandon – even mixing up gold AND silver at the same time.

Check out my outfit above – gold heels mixed with the shiniest silver bag of all time (a new season must-have by M Hulot – I LOVE the shape and size) and these pieces of jewellery from Cred, the UK’s original 100% Fairtrade accredited brand.


Last year Cred introduced the world’s first certified Fairtrade silver, which they incorporated into two collections; Signature (the lovely pendant and charms in the image above) and Iconic, which includes the rose-gold earrings above.

Cred already stocked Fairtrade gold from Peru since 2011 – and were the first brand to account for the provenance  of their gold supply. Now Cred – which also includes a collection of Fairtrade and ethical engagement and wedding rings – can tell their customers the story behind every part of their jewellery and ensure that every material used is sourced fairly and ethically.


I love the mix of metals on the pendant – although you can select from plain silver if you prefer that. And the rose-gold earrings are the kind of piece you will wear for years – day-wear and evening-wear.
