SO! Which style icon are you channelling and what jewellery best suits your style? See below to find out…

Mostly 1s: Sophia Loren

All sensuality, confidence and laughter your fearless, sociable nature puts you at the centre of things. You’re not afraid to flaunt your feminine assets and draw attention.

You suit eye-catching jewellery with old-world glamour. Diamonds are your friend. Think bold, sparkly earrings and cocktail rings. Necklaces that enhance your décolletage – large pendants and lots of precious gemstones that sit around your throat or dip down into your cleavage.

Mostly 2s: Jackie O

Your style is dignified, put together and always chic. You favour simplicity over fuss and like things to match.

Styles built around a single gemstone or strings of evenly matched stones work well for you. Large studs lift an outfit during the day and simple drop earrings dress things up at night. Timeless, chunky pearls set off elegant outfits with style.

Jackie O

Mostly 3s: Coco Chanel

You are independent, original and forward-thinking. You shun feminine fuss in favour of unstructured, flowing elegance. You’re not afraid to express your own style but do not like to feel restricted. Comfort is key.

Long strings of beads make an impact without feeling too ‘done up’. Large pearls and stud earrings are bold and elegant. Layered styles communicate effortless cool. Don’t be afraid to wear jewellery in an original way – beads down the back, brooch as a top button. Get creative!

Eras: Art Nouveau | Art Deco | Mid Century

Mostly 4s: Frida Kahlo

You are strong and expressive. You quite literally wear your emotions and creativity on your sleeve, favouring bold, bright colours and styles which catch the eye. You’re not afraid to mix colours, patterns and textures. Frailty is not your thing.

You can carry off coloured, opaque stones and bolder styles with panache. Look for statement pieces and bright colour. The bigger, the better.

Mostly 5s: Jane Birkin

You are an independent, free spirit. You throw clothes and jewellery on with a casual, comfortable grace. Your face is often bare. You are more focused on real life than drawing attention to yourself.

Sentimentality is more important than decoration when it comes to jewellery. Fine, delicate pieces suit your casual demeanour. For an effortless, bohemian look, layer light chains with sentimental charms and pendants. Delicate rings can be worn on any finger. Earrings are light, ethereal.
