The rock chick look
has been around for years, yet it doesn’t show any signs of going out of fashion. Think black leather, torn denim, spiky stilettos, smoky black eye-makeup
and – of course – layers and layers of long, chunky chains. As long as we have celebs such as Florence Welch
, Courtney Love
, Daisy Lowe
gracing the pages of our favourite magazines, it’s likely that rock’n'roll style is here to stay.
But what if you’re getting hitched? Studs and black lace aren’t to everyone’s taste – not even for the archetypal rock chick herself, Kate Moss
, who married earlier this year in a Galliano gown that was altogether more conventional than her usual skinny jean style (though the model described the 1920s vintage-inspired dress as ‘rock’n'roll Great Gatsby’).
There is, however, a way to stay true to your inner rock chick on your wedding day that doesn’t involve shocking your and your betrothed’s elderly relatives. And that’s by making a relatively small – but significant – statement with rock’n'roll bridal jewellery.
You simply cannot mention the words ‘rock’n'roll’ and ‘jewellery’ in the same sentence without thinking ofStephen Webster
. The undisputed king of rock’n'roll jewels, Webster’s dark, gothic and to-die-for creations have graced the likes of Madonna, Katy Perry, Christine Aguilera and Elton John, no less.

Perhaps less gothic than a skull – but equally rock’n'roll – is Violet Darkling’s Heart & Bone Necklace
, £1,000; a long silver chain that features a chunky silver heart and a bone pave-set with blue topaz gems. Feminine – totally – but with an edge, this necklace is the perfect addition to any rock chick’s jewellery collection.
