I love jewellery (in case you had not noticed). I consider it to be one of the easiest ways to glam up an outfit, or completely reinvent a basic ensemble by just swapping out the accessories. It is also much more affordable to buy a few great pieces rather than a few new outfits. The more sparkle the better in my opinion.
Therefore Hirst Antiques is a must go, do not bypass, leave the boy at home (unless he is buying) if ever in need of a little bit of glam. The teeny tiny space is filled to the brim with gorgeous, unique and amazing pieces that will make you swoon. They have “conversation starting” pieces by Chanel, Kenneth Jay Lane, Miriam Haskell, and Christian Lacroix (just to name a few). Prices run the full spectrum depending upon the item, designer and year it was made. Men do not feel left out as they do have a great selection of cufflinks to add a little dapper to your day. As if things could not get any better it is also right by Portabello Market so you can continue your vintage treasure hunting! Talk about a perfect day.
