Unlike clothes or food, shopping for accessories is an extra special experience. There's no need to take a trip to the changing room, they're guaranteed to spruce up an outfit and they make brilliant gifts.

But recently we've found ourselves a little bored of what's on offer on the high street. That's why we dipped below the radar and unearthed 10 brilliant accessory brands your friends are not likely to have heard of.

Each one of them are affordable, because while fine jewellery and it-bags are wonderful, sometimes we just want a purchase that doesn't dent our purses.

From vintage-inspired bags to jewellery that's close to works of art, take a look at the list below. We promise you one of the best shopping experiences yet...

Wolf and Moon

When designer Hannah Davis graduated she went on a mission to make handcrafted design affordable. Each item is made by her and her assistant in their Brighton studio and they create a little something for everyone from sophisticated geometric earrings to flowery statement headpieces. Pictured here is the twig necklace which comes in wood, perspex or glitter options - it's one their first designs.

From £12

Tarr & Fether

After working with clients in the music and celebrity industry for 14 years, fashion stylist Natasha Lyons realised there was a gap in the market for beautifully crafted pieces which were effortlessly timeless. That's when Tarr & Fether was born. Everything from the 9ct gold pieces to the presentation boxes and pouches are produced in Sheffield. Their personalised coin necklaces make great gifts.

Prices from £18

Vida Vida

Inspired by vintage style and quality, London-based Vida Vida offer beautifully handmade leather goods from leather satchels and messenger bags to travel bags and purses. They deliver to almost anywhere in the world, beautifully wrapped with a handwritten letter. Just like the old way.

From £25

Pieces

While Pieces is not solely an accessories brand, it's Stylist's shopping editor's go-to website for a wide range of affordable items. Their selection of scarves is so big, we found ourselves scrolling for a good five minutes. There's something for every colour and style.

From £12.95

Uterqüe

Italian brand Uterqüe is your one-stop shop for statement pieces that will have your friends asking, "Where did you get that from?" We admit, their items are the most expensive on this list but each piece look like they're worth double the price. Plus you won't find these anywhere on the British high street.

From £24

Ringu

Budapest-based Ringu fuses handmade and modern digital techniques to make breathtaking statement pieces in high street prices. We're fans of their latest collection which capture the northern lights and stars using leather and heat-transfer foil.

£16-£29

Just Trade

We recommend Just Trade's for dedicated fans of gold. The brand also has a lovely story behind it - it was founded in June 2006 to help a struggling fair trade project in the shantytowns of Lima, Peru. Today, it sustainably supports local artisans from Peru, India and Ecuador and celebrates traditional craft skills and materials by helping them reach a European audience.

From £6-£34

Tovicorrie

Every bag by printed leather fashion accessories Brand Tovicorrie is created in-house, from printing botanic-inspired graphics on 100% fine calf skin leather and cow hide to hand stitching the bags on a vintage Singer sewing machine.

From £39.66

Wallpaper Rose

The e-shop is like a treasure trove for unusual delicate jewellery, especially detached collars made from lace and pearls or chains and pins (as pictured). They also have a brass spherical ball locket called the 'Golden Snitch' for Harry Potter fans.

£9-20

Monki

Monki is a lovely brand that sells both classic and on-trend accessories on the cheap, all the while making sure they look after the planet and its employees. "We’re convinced that we can create clothing collections that enable our customers to express their personality and at the same time care about our planet and our co-workers." They're a breath of fresh air.
