Plato first said that necessity is the mother of invention, and he wasn't wrong. As we wake up in our fourth week of working from home, the Because team have been discussing the things that keep us sane and optimistic in these uncertain days. As a platform for sharing the things you should care about, we've wondered how we do that in a light-hearted way.

We all agree that what keeps us happy, makes us cheerful and fosters our dreams is in fact the act of celebrating desirable things made by creative people – objects we could happily treasure – and sharing the manifestations of ideas that become reality.

Our newest feature, Fantasy Wardrobes, is shot at home and, with a little digital magic, layered with some of our favourite pieces we've found online. So with a bit of invention and a lot of necessity, we hope to show that the online world is our oyster and do Plato proud.

Well, it's as great a time as ever to dream big. What's that adage... Go Big or Go Home? When it comes to fantasy jewellery shopping, I am all in. According to a McKinsey trend report, online shopping of fine jewellery has been steadily increasing, and now, with no other option and an unlimited dream budget, I can understand why!

Why not invest in this insanely beautiful Boucheron Plume de Paon necklace above, a diamond encrusted peacock feather that could be yours for a cool £44,500?

Go on, shop it here.

Or perhaps something for the ears, like these Reflections De Cartier earrings, a cascade of white gold and diamonds that leave us dreaming. One day, one day...

Treat yourself, shop it here.

But if you want a no brainer indulgence, don't look any further than what my talented friend Monica Vinader and her team are offering - a jolt of dreamy colour, some rose gold bling and an offer you can't say no to these days for some self-indulgence.

Shop this ring here.
