We'll admit, there's not much we like better than treating ourselves to a gorgeous, sparkling piece of jewellery.
Nothing quite completes an outfit - or makes you feel more put together and glamorous - than an exquisite bracelet, necklace, or set of rings.
Whether it's a budget buy from our favourite high-street store, or a treasured, more expensive piece bought for us for a special occasion, all items in our collection have their own place in our heart.
And of course, one of our favourite activities is adding to our extensive collection, right?
So when we heard about a stunning gold necklace that has been a best-seller for a jewellery brand for almost 10 years, we certainly sat up and listened.
The bumble bee necklace by jeweller Alex Monroe has been winning fans all over the country ever since it launched in 2007. And it's proven so popular that it's consistently been the brand's best-selling piece ever since then.
And we can completely see why! The stunning bumble bee design is elegant yet playful, and would add a stylish but sophisticated touch to almost any outfit.
Add the necklace to a formal business suit for work, and dress it down with it fun floral dress for weekends - both will work equally as well.
But the best part? The necklace sells for an affordable £140 - which, for a quality, handmade-in-the-UK item that will last for years and years to come, is undeniably a winning price!
The necklace also comes in gold plated and solid gold, for those who are able to spend a bit more on their jewellery buys.
The bumble bee necklace will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year, so it sounds like the ideal time to join the masses of jewellery lovers and buy one of your own. Right?
If not, it's the perfect item to pop on that upcoming Christmas list. We know we will be!
