Alright, you fabulous magpies, gather around. We’re about to embark on a glittering adventure to discover how to pick those treasured trinkets that will make your heart flutter each time you wear them. We’re not just talking about costume jewellery you throw on for a Friday night at the pub; we’re delving into pieces that will stand the test of time, just like your nan’s vintage brooch.
So how to choose jewellery pieces to cherish forever you ask? Read on.
START WITH PERSONAL STYLE
First off, let’s talk about style. Choosing a piece that speaks to your personal style is like finding the perfect pair of jeans – they fit just right and make you feel like a million quid. Are you more of a minimalist, sleek and modern type? Or do you lean towards vintage, ornate, and eclectic? When you wear a piece that aligns with your style, it’s like having a good hair day, every day.
Now, onto the craftsmanship. When you’re looking for a piece of jewellery that will grow old with you and which you will never fall out of love with, it is crucial to think about the quality of the work that has gone into crafting it.
A well-crafted piece of jewellery will not only last longer without tarnishing breaking or otherwise degrading, and more than that, it will always be a timeless piece. Like a fine wine, chances are it will gain in, or at least retain, its value too, making it a good investment piece you can pass on to your grandchildren in the future.
BESPOKE IS BEST
Next up, let’s talk customisation. There’s something really special about having a piece of handmade jewellery that has been created just for you, like the custom pieces from www.debrafallowfield.com, for example. If you want to cherish it forever, then it stands to reason that having a and in the design of that ring or necklace, so that it is everything you love about jewellery, will help you to achieve your aims. Not only will it be totally you, but it will be totally unique too, and there is real value in that.
VERSATILITY IS VITAL
A word on versatility. While that oversized, sparkly flamingo brooch may seem like a cracking good idea at the time, think about how often you’ll really wear it. Opting for versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down, or mixed and matched with other pieces, is like having a little black dress in your wardrobe. It’s always in style, and it always fits the occasion.
LOOK FOR LONGEVITY
Last, but not least, consider the longevity. Trends come and go faster than the queue at the chippy on a Saturday night. Choosing timeless pieces over fast-fashion fads ensures you’ll still be loving your jewellery in ten years’ time. It’s like choosing a classic Beatles song over a one-hit-wonder; it’s always going to strike the right chord.
So, now you know how to choose jewellery pieces to cherish forever and what to look for in timeless pieces that you will never not love, it’s time for the fun part – shopping!
