So what I've decided to do this week is show some of my favourite pieces of jewellery. They are all sterling silver and/or semi precious stones.
I don't completely ignore high street jewellery and i do own a few things but i do pretty much live in silver.
All of my stud earrings are silver and the majority of my rings and necklaces are.
I think sterling silver is an affordable luxury. It's not hugely expensive, it's beautiful and it's a pleasure to know that your necklace won't turn green or leave a massive mark on your skin.
Plus silver jewellery goes with almost everything so it's a faithful ally.
this outfit post.
A couple of things I'd like to get are a turquoise and silver ring, a long silver chain and two charms: an acorn and a thimble.
The acorn and thimble thing is a reference to Peter Pan which is one of my favourite books.
A lot of the jewellery i own is very personal and special to me, i think i choose things that reflect my personality like i do with clothes.
I adore vintage, especially brooches. And i love charms, silver charms, I'm like a magpie for them.
I love big statement stuff for dressing up. It makes me feel like a pirate who's raided the treasure : )
But i do wear smaller things when I'm feeling like a more casual pirate!
I very rarely wear gold. Number one i think cheap gold jewellery is the worst for going green and number two i just don't like gold. If the outfit calls for it i have some stuff i might wear but normally it's silver or nothing.
Do you guys prefer silver or gold? Or are you a lover of both?
The other thing i wanted to cover quickly was size. Being a large person, i have large fingers and so have to have a lot of the rings i buy sized up to fit. I find that clothes store jewellery lines run quite small size wise, especially rings and bracelets. Does anyone else have issues finding stuff that fits?
Until next time.
