At RockPaperRoses, we believe jewellery should never be an afterthought- life is simply too short not to enjoy special pieces of jewellery every day!
I’m Riyaza, the founder and creative vision behind RockPaperRoses, a London-based online jewellery boutique. It was my love of jewellery and accessorising that led me to start RockPaperRoses in the spring of 2016. Pretty soon the project captured my imagination and I began to see we could offer beautiful, truly unique designs at affordable high street prices.
Everything you see in our collections is handpicked by me. Each piece has been chosen because it's unique and fashion-forward. Our designs are iconic and special. I really want you to feel special when you wear RockPaperRoses jewellery- and keep receiving those compliments!
I've been a lover and collector of jewellery since I was a teenager. I loved chokers the first time around in the '90s, rocked those big drop earrings we all had in the Noughties, all pulled together by a beaded bracelet and some kind of silver necklace.
These days my 'second skin jewellery'- the pieces I wear everyday, include my wedding and engagement ring and my rose gold Marc Jacobs watch. I keep statement pieces to a minimum- less is always more when it comes to accessorising. I usually wear a Pandora ring or floating locket, and always combine this with either a RockPaperRoses necklace or pair of earrings. I just love the way that jewellery can transform an outfit- just adding a chunky watch or a statement necklace can really make your outfit pop.
This summer we've added a range of structural statement earrings to our collection. This fun collection of tassels, hoops, assymetrical and drop earrings reflect not only trends we've seen on the catwalks but also our love of expressing your every mood through jewellery. Accessorising is great way to share your identity and style with the world, and what better way through this collection of limited edition earrings, part of the Elegant Icons range.
The H O P E Collection of sterling silver and gold vermeil bracelets draws on beautiful design and craftsmanship to use jewellery as a mindfulness tool. Click through to the full collection and discover these delicate charm bracelets.
You'll learn more about all the collections as you browse the shop. But let me just tell you that in addition to sterling silver, we can also now boast platinum and rhodium plating- both platings that give jewellery an incredible shine and finish. We have earrings that are hand finished with AAA Zircon- a high quality cubic zirconia known for it's lustre and shine. And we also have Swarovski elements twinkling in amongst our pieces. And of course everything is hypoallergenic, lead and nickel free.
Oh and before you go, did you know about the RockPaperRoses Style Community?
