Consider this your definitive guide to the world of oh-so-fine jewellery. My tips on trends, insurance, and – of course – diamonds.
Like most one us, my interest with adoring myself with jewels starting at a young age; although back then said jewels were of the plastic variety. My jewellery box has housed everything from statement necklaces to whisper-thin rings and everything in between, and over the years I’ve definitely noticed that I reach for the same select pieces day in, day out, regardless of the occasion.
I’m a big believer in quality over quantity, and I’d rather have a few incredible pieces I know will last a lifetime, rather than a massive collection of (inevitably) tangled necklaces, rings and earrings.
Jewellery is the ideal way to treat yourself. Finding a perfect piece can often mean you’ll wear it for years to come, so it’s worth making an informed decision. Below are my experiences (it was getting engaged that pushed me head first into the daunting world of fine jewellery) and tips for buying and looking after your investment.
