We all know that there are many great benefits of renting over buying new, and that rental can provide a much more sustainable approach to fashion. Instead of buying into trend-led pieces, we can get that feeling of newness by sharing our pieces and contributing to the circular economy. This has never been more important than it is right now.

"The fashion industry can no longer function on a purely linear model; the thirst for constant newness has led to incredibly high levels of consumption which has pushed up mass over-production, making the fashion industry one of the most polluting," luxury resale site Vestiaire Collective co-founder Fanny Moizant previously told us, reminding us why it’s so important, now more than ever before, that luxury brands embrace the rental and resale markets. "According to Greenpeace, clothing consumption is set to rise by 63 per cent by 2030, but at the same time we wear our clothes 40 per cent less than we did 10 years ago."

And of course, not only does this apply to our clothes, but it spans across our accessorises too. As well as doing your research when it comes to buying jewellery (find out about our favourite sustainable jewellery brands and about lab-grown only diamonds here), you can also opt to rent your jewellery for your next event instead of purchasing one-off pieces that you may only wear a couple of times.

So, whether you are after a statement piece to finish off your next party outfit, fancy renting a tiara for a formal event or are just looking for something a little special for a one-off occasion, here's our guide to the best jewellery rental destinations to check out now.
