Building a jewellery collection can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, but with so much choice out there it can also be a bit overwhelming to know where to start. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just starting out, here are a few important factors to consider when building your jewellery collection.
Define Your Style
Your jewellery should fit you like a second skin, your armour that you wear to face life’s challenges, so when building your jewellery collection it is essential to define your personal style and taste. Take time to think about what you like and what you don’t like. Consider the colours you wear, the shapes and styles of jewellery you prefer, and whether you like bold statement pieces or delicate, understated pieces. This will help you choose pieces that not only complement your wardrobe but also reflect your personality and individual style.
Invest in Timeless Pieces
Investing in timeless pieces is one of the key components of building a successful jewellery collection. Timeless pieces, such as the Personalised Electric necklace, the Heart strings bracelet, or the Marquise hoops, will always be in style and can be worn for years to come. When selecting your timeless pieces, look for high-quality materials,(we use only 925 Sterling Silver) and consider the craftsmanship of the piece (all of our pieces come with a one year guarantee). These timeless pieces will become the foundation of your collection, and can be worn and enjoyed for years to come.
Choose Versatile Pieces
When building your jewellery collection, it is important to choose versatile pieces that can be worn in multiple ways. For example, buy your necklaces at various lengths so they can be worn individually, or together to create a layered look (like the Cosmic girl layered set, or bracelets can be worn on their own or stacked to make a real impact (Like the Arm Candy gift set). When selecting your versatile pieces, consider the length, weight, and style of the piece, and choose pieces that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Vary the chain types and, if it suits your style, opt for different finishes (we love the mixed metal look).
Mix and Match
Building a jewellery collection is not just about buying individual pieces, but also about how those pieces work together to create a cohesive look. Mix and match different pieces to create new and interesting combinations, and experiment with layering and stacking to create a unique look. You can also use your jewellery collection to add colour and texture to your outfits, and to create different moods and styles. For a bit of inspiration check out our Shop the Look page.
Keep It Organised
Keeping your jewellery collection organised will help to keep it in tip top condition, and make it easy to find the pieces you want to wear. Store your jewellery in a cool, dry place, and consider using a jewellery box, tray, or pouch to keep your pieces protected. We recommend storing your Sterling silver pieces in plastic ziplock bags to prevent tarnishing. Clean your jewellery regularly to remove any dirt or grime (check out our simple tutorial on how to clean your jewellery here ), and store pieces separately to prevent scratches and tangles.
Buy What You Love
Ultimately, building a jewellery collection is about buying what you love! While it is really important to consider factors such as quality, value, and versatility, it is also important to choose pieces that you love and that you will enjoy wearing. Take your time, and choose pieces that make you happy and that you feel confident wearing.
Building a jewellery collection can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. By defining your style, investing in timeless pieces, choosing versatile pieces, mixing and matching, keeping your collection organised and buying what you love you can build a jewellery collection that will bring you joy for years to come.
