Jewellery is never something I’ve given that much thought about.
It’s funny though, you can put all your effort into putting together a really nice outfit, but sometimes a simple necklace or a fancy pair of earrings are what finishes the look off and brings it all together.
I’ve never really owned an awful lot of jewellery. When I was in my teens I used to try really hard to accessorise my outfits but it never came naturally to me, and I ended up with a whole pile of cheap rings, necklaces and earrings that I never wore.
Now, I have just a small collection of jewellery made up of
- 6 necklaces
- 2 bracelets
- 2 statement earrings
- small selection of basic stud earrings
- 1 watch (not pictured)
Although my selection is small, I like to try to have a variety of styles so that I won’t get bored.
(all necklaces old/not available online)
As you can see, I love a mix of pieces from dainty silver pendants for layering, to tassels for making a statement.
I also have my Olivia Burton rose gold watch (similar vegan friendly version here) and a few basic stud earrings for my lobes. The rest of my ear piercings still have the original jewellery in from when they were first done. I don’t own any rings, they’re not something I feel comfortable wearing, not until I get married anyway!
Will I buy more?
For the most part, I’m happy with my minimal jewellery collection, however I feel there is a gap perhaps for the Summit necklace from Wakened Apparel. I love this style and even better, it’s ethically made and 10% of the sales go to supporting Rhino conservation around the world. My birthday is in a couple of months and this will definitely be on my list!
Do you have a minimal jewellery collection or do you like to have more choice when it comes to accessorising? Let me know!
