Dying for a way to release your inner teenager? Look no further than Korean designer Marisa Jiwi Seok and her line of carefree jewellery (www.jiwinaia.com).

Follow in the footsteps of style aficionados Pandora Sykes and Sharmadean Reid and bookmark this girl immediately.
2. CF Concept
2016 looks set to be yet another year full of Scandi vibes. CF Concept (cfconcept.com) fits right in thanks to founder Charlotte Flyvholm’s Danish background. Recognisable for its geometric nature and 100% wearable designs, CF Concept can count Natalie Dormer, Jourdan Dunn and Bond girl Naomie Harris among its many fans. Add the tusk earrings to your shopping cart pronto.
3. Rachel Boston
Central Saint Martins alumnus Rachel Boston (www.rachelboston.co.uk) has a strong list of celebrity followers to boast of. Rihanna, FKA Twigs and Ellie Goulding are all keen wearers of Boston’s nature-focused designs. Her current inspirations range from runes to insect anatomies with each piece being cooked up between Jaipur and East London. Tip: invest in the fine jewellery collection if you’re not on a budget.
4. Soru Jewellery
Sisters Francesca Kelly and Marianna Doyle are the brains behind Soru Jewellery (www.sorujewellery.com). Known for its lush natural gemstones, the brand’s roots began in 2013 and their designs have since adorned the likes of Georgia May Jagger, Laura Whitmore and Millie Mackintosh. Each piece aims to evoke the innate confidence of Sicilian women, garnered from the duo’s childhood summers spent on the island. If you’re a fan of Dolce & Gabbana’s vibrant aesthetic, you’re guaranteed to love Soru’s selection of agate rings and chokers.
5. Jessie Harris
Starting her career as a fine artist, Jessie Harris (jessieharris.co.uk) swiftly moved into the world of jewellery. Harris riffs on symbols to produce minimal designs; each one handcrafted in her East London studio. We’re joining fangirls Jourdan Dunn, Cheryl and Pandora Sykes. (P.S. Make sure you get your hands on a pair of those knocker earrings.)
