So when I discovered Ottoman Hands, an artisanal British brand that specialises in handcrafted, gold-plated jewellery set with semi-precious gems, I was instantly hooked. The newest collection is inspired by goddesses, Greek mythology and the divine feminine. Handcast in its workshops in Istanbul, you’ll find pendants to rival Chloé, intricately engraved coin earrings, delicate beaded necklaces and rings set with mother of pearl or lapis. Each is rich in symbolism and pays homage to the brand’s Turkish heritage. Best of all, prices range from just £19 to £198.
