Dainty, Gemstone Jewellery Lovers, Astrid & Miyu Is The Ideal Brand For You

Designed by Dionne Pajarillaga.
Sure, we dabble with statement pendants, flirt with quirky charms and occasionally slip on a chunky, resin ring or two, but there is one jewellery style that we always come back to: dainty and delicate. We’re talking fine chain necklaces that are perfect for layering, simple huggie, hoop earrings that we can wear everyday, and constellations of miniature piercings adorning our ears.
No one does dainty jewellery as well as Astrid & Miyu. It’s not every day that you discover a jewellery brand that prides itself on quality and craftsmanship as well as style — and at an affordable price, too. In fact, prices start at £30 for a single barbell earring and a vast majority of designs all come in under £100, making it easier to build up your jewellery box or achieve the layered look; especially one of the brand’s signature ear stacks.
As longtime fans of Astrid & Miyu, we thought it was about time we spotlight their best pieces. From zodiac styles to initial jewellery (perfect for gifts!), read on for our favourites.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by us. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy or click on something we link to on our site, we may earn a commission.
From star sign necklaces to miniature moon earrings, Astrid & Miyu does some of the best zodiac jewellery on the high street. So much so, a four-point star is their signature symbol, embellishing many of their designs. Bookmark for your bestie's next birthday.
No ear piercing? No problem. Astrid & Miyu's selection of ear cuffs has got you covered, including double strand, illusion styles, charm cuffs and gemstone embellished designs.
Though Astrid & Miyu has plenty on offer in the gemstone department, including birthstone necklaces and earrings which we have bookmarked for Christmas gifting.
Simple, geometric shapes, embellished initials, delicate star and moon motifs, organic, molten designs — whatever kind of pendant necklace you're looking for, Astrid & Miyu have it. Even better, some of their pendants can also be engraved and personalised.
While pearl jewellery is certainly having a moment right now, it's far from a momentary trend. Mermaidcore anklets and chokers, and organically shaped, baroque charms aren't going anywhere.
Even if you're not usually a ring person (we get it, they can sometimes be uncomfortable to wear), you'll barely feel these thin, delicate bands.
If you wear hoop or huggie earrings every day, why not invest in a matching set? Made with proper gold or sterling silver, they will set you back a bit, but then you're safe in the knowledge that they will shine just as bright and snap into place just as perfectly in five years' time.
