Meaningful Jewelry: Investing in Less, but Better

Meaningful Jewelry: Investing in Less, but Better

(Pssst… make sure to read all the way to the end because there is a giveaway!)

Awhile ago, I shared about how I’ve really pared down my jewelry collection.

And that is still very true for me today. In fact, I’ve gotten rid of even more pieces that I was holding onto just for holding onto’s sakes (they were repurposed and given to one of my sisters).

I can honestly say that at this point, every piece in my collection is quality and it’s special. They’re the kind of pieces that I take in to get cleaned/repaired.

In other words, they aren’t easy to replace. And not necessarily because of their price either.

Their presence in my collection is not a mistake. Each piece was chosen very carefully and with a great deal of intention. In other words, they have value because they mean something to me.

They’re the kind of pieces that I imagine I’ll pass down to my girls someday.

I don’t own a lot, but what I do own is special.

At the moment I really cycle between just four necklaces (I don’t really wear bracelets and only wear earrings on occasion):

The monogram necklace is an heirloom from my Grandma, the horn and the initial necklace (my initial necklace is currently being repaired) were purchased from Etsy, and the silver necklace is a new one that Shuang from Everli was kind enough to send me.

These four pieces in particular have very specific meanings to me: my Grandmother’s necklace is an obvious one, as is my initial (the girl’s initials are my initials) necklace. The moon necklace is special to me because it reminds me how big the universe is and how amazing it is that I get to be a part of it.

And the necklace from Everli is special to me because it says Kit, Ella, Rosie, and David on it in Morse Code (in other words, the things I hold most dear to my heart). It’s one of the most beautiful pieces that I own. It’s made extremely well and it hangs just right. I also love the way it sparkles when the light hits it. I really love it you guys!

Having jewelry like this, jewelry that is meaningful, has made my collection so vibrant… every piece has a warmness attached to it you just won’t get if you’re buying your jewelry from Target or Forever 21.

I’m moving in this direction with my wardrobe as well, but it feels good to have “arrived” with my jewelry collection.

So here’s the best part: Shuang has kindly agreed to giveaway a love code necklace to one of my Truncation gals (or guys).

You’ll be able to choose either the gold or silver necklace and what you want it to say in morse code. If you’d like to win a necklace, just head over to my Instagram to see the rules for entry (I’ll be uploading the entry post at 8:00 a.m. central standard time).

Until next time,

    Your necklaces are beautiful! My most meaningful piece of jewelry is a gold chain by Dad used to wear. Since he’s passed away I feel like he’s with me whenever I wear it…which is almost always!

    I have pared down my jewelry too. One of my favorites is a necklace my mom had made for me. It was originally a pair of costume jewelry clip on earrings that belonged to my grandma. I plan to have it remade with real gold and stones from jewelry I no longer wear. Only because the costume jewelry doesn’t hold up over time and many wears. I also have a few bracelets that my kids either made or bought me.
