Bohemian jewellery is absolutely timeless. Typically identified as off-beat and eclectic, bohemian jewellery typically features natural materials like wood, stone, and leather. It is often handmade and often features colourful designs and patterns. Bohemian jewellery is the perfect way to add a touch of your personality and style to any outfit.
The history of bohemian-inspired jewellery
Bohemian jewellery has its roots in the traditional jewellery of the Roma people. The Roma are a nomadic people who have their origins in India. They began migrating to Europe in the 12th century, and by the 16th century, they had settled in many parts of Central and Eastern Europe. The Roma people were known for their colourful clothing and their skill in making handmade crafts like jewellery, pottery, and baskets.
The popularity of bohemian jewellery has ebbed and flowed over the years, but it has never completely gone out of style. In recent years, there has been a revival of interest in all things bohemian, fueled in part by celebrities like Sienna Miller and Kate Moss who are often seen wearing boho-chic jewellery.
The power of the evil eye
The evil eye is a popular motif in many cultures. It is said to protect the wearer from negative energy and keep them safe from harm. Many people believe that the evil eye has the power to ward off evil spirits, jealousy, and bad luck. In some cultures, the evil eye is also thought to bring good luck! (And for those who don’t really believe in the protection of the evil eye, you can have a cute decoration piece)
Accessorise with our boho rings
The first step in accessorising with rings is choosing the right ones for your outfit. If you're wearing a dressier outfit, opt for our Aphrodite double pearl ring. If you're wearing a casual outfit, go for our moonstone signets.
Make a statement with boho earrings
One of the easiest ways to dress up any outfit is with a pair of statement earrings. These can be anything from big and bold hoops to delicate and dangly chandelier earrings. The key is to find a pair that complements your personal style and face shape. For example, if you have a round face, opt for long, angular earrings that will help elongate your features like a pair of cosmic dagger sleeper earrings. Or if you have a square jawline, go for softer, rounder earrings, like a pair of Chloe earrings, that will balance out your look. And if you're really not sure where to start, try a pair of classic pearl drop earrings – they go with everything!
Mix and match with boho styles!
With Bauhaus's collection of bohemian jewellery don't be afraid to mix and match! Maybe a Franck Herval bracelet, paired with a simple lovely heart drop necklace, and a pair of Archie earrings for a bold look. Or keep it simple with just one or two statement pieces. If you're not sure where to start, try pairing a chunky bracelet with some delicate earrings. Need some inspiration? Check out our collection of bohemian-inspired jewellery!
