Elegant and feminine, the Ridley and Dowse jewelry will surely appeal to those females who revel in their womanly ways. Of course, there is something slightly hipster about each piece as well; for instance, although their Gloria necklace has a traditional Victorian aesthetic, its simplified silhouette makes it very contemporary.

Based in the United Kingdoms, Ridley and Dowse was founded by jewelry and accessories designer Vivienne Ridley and print designer Susannah Dowse. Although it is the studio's jewelry that has everyone talking, Ridley and Dowse also specializes in home decor, miscellaneous accessories and lifestyle products as well.

More than that, Ridley and Dowse make "a deliberate effort to keep operations in the U.K. under an unwavering commitment to low-impact production and social consciousness," according to Cool Hunting.
