My Everyday Jewellery4/03/2014 01:10:00 pm
While I was home a few weeks ago, I went on a bit of a spending splurge and spent a little bit of my money from my relatives that I got for my 18th birthday, so I thought I'd do a quick blog post showing the couple of things that I got, as well as the few pieces that I wear everyday.
My school friends and I had a tradition where we would get each other a Pandora ring for our 18ths, and even though I was at uni for mine, some of my friends got together and gave me one too. I've seen some people stack their Pandora rings, and I really like the effect that it gives, and by having more than one, it allows you to change it up a little. So to go along with the ring that my friends gave me, I used the money from my aunt and uncle to buy another two rings that I think look awesome when stacked. The first ring is a valentine heart ring, that I liked because it looked simple, but has the detail of the repeated heart pattern, and being a girl who loves hearts, I instantly loved this one, and I wear it underneath the ring with the stone that my friends gave me. The second ring that I bought I had to order because, typical me, I picked the one that was being discontinued. But it's arrived, and I think it looks quite cool above the other two, or on its own.

Along with these, every single day I wear a watch. It's tradition in my family, for my parents to give us a watch for our 18th birthday. And so, for my birthday I picked a Michel Herbelin watch. It's two tone, which I wanted because then it'll match with both gold and silver jewellery. It also has Roman numerals on the face, and there was the option of having little studs or strokes, but I really wanted the Roman numerals, I thought it gave a certain character to it. My mum claims its because I'm into history, which may have some truth.. but I think it looks pretty nice.

Finally, I have worn this friendship bracelet everyday since I got it a couple of weeks ago. My sisters and I got the same bracelets from Accessorize when they last came to Edinburgh and we wanted them just to show how much we love each other. I find it quite hard being away from them, so wearing this bracelet is a nice reminder that we are all there for each other no matter where in the world we are.
