Make a Wish! Astrid & Miyu Jewelry

If there is one big gap in my wardrobe, it has got to be jewelry. I absolutely love the way I feel when I'm wearing a really nice piece and feel naked if I don't have a pair of earrings on. But truth be told, more often than not, I forget to put anything on before leaving the house. In all honesty, I'm always rushing out the door, regretting those extra 20 minutes of sleep, and all my energy goes toward putting my face on. I really want to change that, since I think jewelry is the best way to make any outfit more "you" and more feminine!

Astrid & Miyu is a designer jewelry brand, which was founded in 2011 by two very inspiring business ladies: Connie Nam and Jenny Orlova. They met at the London Business School and say they founded the brand to bridge a gap in the market for unique, feminine and affordable jewelry. And I believe they did just that! They've got dozens of incredible designs and I might be kind of in love with the brand. I also think it's the most lovely detail that both names mean "exceptionally beautiful" in two different languages and they want their pieces to make us feel just like that.

I found the brand while looking for this exact piece, a wishbone necklace. After seeing a picture of Demi Lovato (yes, I know!) wearing one, I became intent in finding a similar one and I'm really happy with this Astrid & Miyu piece! They offer it in gold, silver and rose gold (their collection of gold rose pieces, by the way,  is also incredible!). I went for the gold, which for me is a colour I can wear with most things. It is gold plated brass and the 30cm chain drop is the perfect length for me! I like necklaces that hang a little big lower and this fits just right!

Have you been lusting over anything from Astrid & Miyu? Own a piece that you love? Share in the comments! x


  1. I skip jewelry all the time! I wish I didn't. That's such a gorgeous necklace x

  2. Pretty! I'm a big earrings kind of girl but aiming to wear more necklaces & bracelets this year!!

  3. Never really heard of this brand, but I do like their products ^_^ They're quite feminine.
    I'm like you, most of the time I forget to put on jewelry. Or I leave it at home, because I've convinced myself that wearing jewelry makes it difficult to run and do errands... :D

  4. It's such a pretty piece. I've never been a fan of heavy jewellery (on me!) but this looks like my style. I may have to go and check them out. :)

  8. I totally know what you mean about skipping Jewelry! Actually in my younger days (I'm talking as if I'm past 30 haha) I used to looove wearing jewelry, but that was before I become semi-obsessed with makeup of course D:
    Such a pretty necklace!
