A bit of bling always brightens up our lives and makes us look really cool.

Jewellery is an important part of the Croydon image for both men and women. Whether it's a 9-carat gold plated ring or cubic zirconia "diamonds", it's essential to get the right look.

All Croydon men should sport a chunky gold chain and a big gold ring. The sovereign ring is the ring of choice for most men, although if you have a mum that cooks you chips every night, then why not show that you love her by wearing a MUM ring instead?

If you're going to court, it might be worth trying a thinner chain with St. Christopher cross. It doesn't matter if you've never set foot in a church.

For ladies, big hoopy earrings are a must have. The bigger, the better. If you have enough piercings, try two different sizes in each ear. A diamond ring is also a must - at least 5 cubic zirconia diamonds. If possible, try to wear rings on at least 3 fingers of each hand.

Posh ladies in Croydon (who work in offices) are often seen with Pandora bracelets and ankle chains to complement their tattoed foot.
