Jewellery Collection

Jewellery Collection
This year I decided amongst many other things that I was going to stop buying fashion jewellery. The reason for this is due to the fact that I was fed up of it turning a nasty shade of green or yellow after a certain amount of time. I'm not sure if I will stick to this completely as there are some amazing pieces of fashion jewellery out there and of course it's so much cheaper compared to real metals. There is also such a variety of styles too so certain things do last longer than others.

Recently I added a new necklace to my collection which is a Purple Druzy Necklace from Delilah Dust. Placed upon a silver plated chain I think it is gorgeous and is so different to anything else within my rather small collection. I've never had a silver plated item before so I'm seeing how this wears; fingers crossed it will last me quite a bit.

My little amethyst pendant and silver chain is from Dixi a little over a year ago whilst the silver ring is from Accessorize. Speaking of Accessorzie they have some really beautiful sterling silver rings in quite a lot of the time that I think are rather reasonably priced; it's always a place I check these days for nice little rings. Being a huge fan of jewellery, silver in particular I'm always on the lookout for more unusual pieces therefore if you have any recommendations then please do leave a comment below letting me know.

  1. I used to always buy cheap fashion jewellery but nowadays I would rather spend more for good quality pieces :) I also got tired of jewellery going that horrid shade of green! The amethyst pendant looks beautiful^^

  7. These are absolutely gorgeous. Now that I'm working I'm buying more quality jewellery as well and I hated the green tinge on my fingers so much that I haven't worn fashion jewellery rings in years and years!

  16. Sounds ideal - wearing only real silver etc. I mean. :) But I'm currently working at a store selling fashion jewelry (and only small part of them are pure silver ones), and there's always so many beautiful pieces ..very hard to resist buying some every week hehe! I actually just posted my most recent statement jewelry find ♥

    Hmm I think there's lots of jewelry makers who have their own etsy.com store by now. I think it's fun and very easy way to browse through various sellers, and the prices for some are very affordable too! :) This one you've got from Delilah Dust is simply adorable xx
