I’ve always enjoyed a beautiful piece of jewellery, but since becoming a mother, I’m obsessed. I rarely have time to put on makeup anymore, so to make myself feel less like a monster, I put at least one piece on everyday. The problem? I’m allergic to anything but gold (note: contrary to what my husband may tell you, this is not something I made up to ensure I only wear fine jewelry).

Lucky for me, there has been a recent boom of wholesale jewellery available to the masses. The Internet has changed the way we purchase our favourite bracelets and rings, so today I’m going to share one of these companies with you.

AuRate creates stunning minimalist pieces that are made by women, for women. All of their pieces feature real gold, are reasonably priced, and ethically sourced. Below are a few of my favourite earrings, necklaces and rings, which also happen to come with free shipping in the US and a low shipping/taxes/duty rate for Canadians (mine was just over $20).

Happy shopping!
