Not too long ago, the New York-based jewellery brand AUrate caught my attention, amongst other because of their recently launched Holiday Collection including different earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings.

I was very intrigued by the idea behind the brand: "Women shouldn't have to choose between high quality, fair pricing and doing good." I couldn't agree more with that, which is why I made it my personal mission to spread the message about them and introduce them to you.

The message is basically that you get what you pay for and, considering the highly qualitative materials that they use for their production (that's based in New York as well), I feel like the prices are justified.

The New Holiday Collection is a mix of edgy statement earrings, geometrical rings that are ideal for layering and decent necklaces and bracelets. The Sensu part of the collection reveals the Japanese traditional dances to be one of the main influences. Just as the dance genre, the pieces are very elegant and easy to combine, yet untypical and intriguing because of their complex structure.

I decided to incorporate a few of the pieces into a little lookbook. The main idea was, on the one hand, to show how jewellery can elevate and change the vibe of a whole outfit; on the other hand, to demonstrate that black-and-white outfits don't always have to be 'boring' or 'uncreative'.

Play with textures, add a pop of colour to your lips or even better, some statement earrings and a pair of sunglasses and you're good to take over the streets of New York! (... or London, in my case)
