Some say that no outfit is complete without a piece of jewellery and I agree but I believe that it is about more than just a pretty piece of metal. My jewellery collection is less of a statement and more or a memorial and I wanted to share that with you.
I keep my collection on a dresser in my bedroom; my rings in a heart shaped bowl and my favourite bits inside a glass jewellery box. I like to see my pieces because they each hold a special meaning that brings a smile to my faces when I least expect it. The vintage frame holds one of my favourite quotes – to remind me daily – and draped on the sides are a string of pearls and a necklace of my Nana’s that I took when she passed. Inside the jewellery box are my most worn and favourite bits – my Michael Kors watch, my promise ring, my bow chain, my Nana’s glasses chain and my bow ring that I found in New York. Then, in the bowl are a mixture of costume rings, friendship rings and my Nana’s rings. The only bracelets that I own are a few bangles laid out and that is my entire collection except for my Nana’s cross and my late Father’s wedding ring that I never take off.
As I said, my jewellery collection is really more of a set of memories with a few fun bits mixed in. I really prefer dainty pieces that I can layer and mix than more obvious jewels. I wouldn’t mind one more big shiny rock – hint hint Shayne – haha.
Do you have any special pieces that mean something to you?
