As somebody who is inundated with fash-wan press releases all day long, I’m always really excited (and surprised!) to stumble upon a brand I’ve not encountered before whilst out shopping. I wasn’t actually “out shopping” when I came across DOSE of ROSE, I was manically buying Christmas presents on notonthehighstreet.com when a pair of their unusual earrings popped up on my screen. I knew they’d be perfect for my best friend and when they arrived in the post a few days later, I realised they were perfect for me too. They’d be perfect for anyone with ears to be honest, because they simply ARE perfect.
Starburst Earrings – £25 here.
Giving them away was hard, so I bought the same pair again for me. And then bought another pair for me. And then I realised this is the first affordable jewellery brand that I’ve been excited by in aaaaaaaages.
So I got in touch with them to find out a bit more about the DOSE of ROSE story and what’s coming next, because if you’re anything like me then you’ll want all of their wares. Like seriously, you better hope it’s your birthday, anniversary, pay day and “early alternative Christmas” soon.
Thanks for taking the time to chat to me, I’m a bit of a mega fan. Can you tell me a bit about the history of the brand?
DOSE of ROSE was founded in 2014 by Worcestershire-based jewellery designer Sienna Han. Sienna wanted to take her many years of experience designing for high street to top end brands to create a more unusual trend-driven brand that steered away from mass produced products. Sienna personally selects each piece for its individual character and charm.
Is there a best-selling piece?
Our star motive necklace, earrings and rings are very popular at the moment. The rings are great for stacking and available in 3 colours so you can mix them up a little.
Star Rings – £19.50 here.
Do you have a personal fave piece?
I love all of our collection but if I have to choose then I think the rose stud earrings are a favourite piece because they are really unusual and it’s got gothic, rock and romance all in one. It’s all about how you style it.
Rose Stud Earrings – £18 here.
How would you describe the DOSE of ROSE woman?
She is very elegant and sophisticated and she is not afraid of putting things together to make her own style.
Is there any particular celebrity who you would love to see in your pieces?
Emma Stone for sure. It seems that whatever style she tries, it suits her. She has a natural beauty and oozes confidence with it.
Do you have any advice for anyone else who dreams of starting their own jewellery business?
Don’t be afraid to be different, which is very much a motto for life in general. People are more confident than ever to break away from the norm so give them the accessories to do so!
Shooting Star Earrings – £18 here.
Do you have a favourite ‘pinch me’ moment of the DOSE of ROSE journey so far?
Since we launched our business, it’s been growing steadily and we are very grateful for how much we’ve been noticed by many journalists, PRs and bloggers – like yourself!
If you had to choose, would you go with silver, gold or rose gold?
Rose gold certainly oozes a little extra glamour and can add a touch of beautiful colour to that little black dress. It’s also a colour that is very much on trend at the moment so we try to use that to our advantage.
Birthstone Bead Earrings in Rose Gold – £18 here.
Can you give us any clues as to what we might expect from DOSE of ROSE in the future?
We really want to push forward to be a well known brand and be seen accessorising magazine models and celebrities. We have great plans to expand our range, so watch this space!
Two Row Necklace – £18 here.
Circle Stud Earrings – £18 here.
Pastel Statement Earrings – £18 here.
