My forever jewellery

Sunday, May 29, 2016
After reading the blog post 'Forever' Jewellery by Me & Orla, I felt inspired to make a response post about my own jewellery pieces that are special to me.

This ring was handed down to me by my mum. It fits me perfectly and is the only touch of yellow gold (apart from the bracelet below) that I like to wear. I don't know much about this ring, but I remember my mum wearing it all the time when I was young. I like the shape and the subtle sparkle it has, and I love that it reminds me of my mum when I wear it.

From unknown.

This yellow and white gold bracelet was a gift from my dad and step-mum for my 21st birthday. They surprised me in Edinburgh on the night of my birthday and I'll never forget it, I'll never be happier than I was in that moment, nothing can top it. I can't even leave the house without this bracelet on my wrist, it just feels wrong. It's practically welded to my skin at this point.

From Goldsmiths.

This necklace was a Christmas present from my nan a fair few years ago. It's very classy and elegant. I tend to wear this to weddings and evening 'dos mostly as it gives that little bit of refinement to an outfit. I love the teardrop pearl in this necklace, never seen anything like it before which makes me love it more. I always think this necklace looks like it should belong in a royal's jewellery box.

From M&S.

I'm not sure what my jewellery says about me, perhaps that I'm both bold and understated? A mix of traditional and modern? Classic and quirky? I like jewellery that has meaning - most of my necklaces and bracelets have been gifts from my lovely friends and family - so I think essentially my jewellery says that I'm a bit sentimental and also not fond of buying myself jewellery.
