In the ongoing fight against trend-led consumption, we’re on hand to give you all the help you need to create your own ‘Forever’ jewellery collection. Because when you sign up to lifelong jewels, you need to be sure before you invest!
When it comes to creating your ultimate jewellery collection there are a few basic principles we abide by, so keep scrolling for a run down of the must-haves you’ll never tire of.
THE JEWELLERY COLLECTOR'S LAWS OF LUXE
1. PERFECT THE BASICS WITH CHAIN NECKLACES & BRACELETS
Think of these essentials as your jewellery base layer - never to be taken off and perfect to be added to. Delicate figaro chains and rope chains can be worn alone 24/7 while their extendable nature also makes them the ideal layering partner with heavy chains and pendants.
And while chain necklaces gild your neckline, chain bracelets are on hand to bejewel your wrists - again keep it minimal with just one, or stack them up with other bracelets for on-trend maximalism. Perfecting your basics lays a chic foundation for your jewellery collection.
2. ATTACH MEANING WITH PRE-LOVED VINTAGE JEWELLERY
Next up, our vintage jewellery pieces are here to help with rule no.2 of creating your ultimate jewellery collection: adding pieces with heritage. From promise rings with hidden inscriptions, tosignets that have literally been through the wars, our selection of pre-owned vintage jewellery will add history to your jewellery collection, full of treasures with stories to tell.
3. CREATE SOMETHING PERSONAL WITH ENGRAVABLE JEWELLERY
Now it’s time to throw in a piece that’s unique to you by adding an engraved item. Inscribe your initials on our engravable pendants to put your stamp on your carefully curated jewellery collection. Engravable signet rings are another staple future heirloom, with our collection of 9ct gold fine signet rings making their quality all the more indefinite.
For private messages close to your heart, opt for pendants that have engraving on the back. Or for your chosen characters to take centre stage, choose from our collection of personalisable pendants which have with their engravable plate at the front.
4. FIND THE PERFECT PAIR OF GOLD HOOPS
The ultimate jewellery collection staple, gold hoops need no introduction. Like a week without a weekend, a jewellery collection devoid of gold hoops is unthinkable. They are such a simple piece with the unique ability to transform just about any outfit. Finding the perfect pair of gold hoops is pivotal since they will forever be nominated for every day and night shift.|
Shop HQ favourites like the Angelina’s, weekend wonders like the Neve or give a wink to the 80s classics with our collection of gemstone-clad chubby gold hoops. Be they big, small, chunky or slender, decked out with shimmering cubic zirconia or gleaming with coloured gemstones; gold hoops can turn any average outfit into the chichest of looks.
