How to: Create your personalized jewellery wardrobe

Fine jewellery is extra special. When you choose to add a piece in gold, diamonds, or gemstones to your jewellery box, it’s something that you want to treasure and wear for many years.

So, creating your personalised jewellery wardrobe of meaningful pieces that reflect your personality and beliefs, will ensure you will always love each piece and that you can create your unique, bespoke look to empower yourself every day. 

Here are our five favourite ideas for beginning and building your personalised jewellery wardrobe. 

1. Your birthstone

A pop of colour, and a personal piece in one. Your birthstone gem is the perfect place to start when adding a little more ‘you’ to your jewellery wardrobe. There’s a gemstone associated with each month of the year, from January’s garnet to December’s blue topaz, and each has a unique story. Find a birthstone piece that suits your style, from simple pendants to vibrant statement rings.  

2. Your initials 

Initial jewellery has always been a favourite way to personalise your look, and it’s trending now more than ever. There are so many ideas for wearing initials that mean something to you; whether your own initials for a personal statement, or the initials of your partner, children, or best friend. Discover our range of initial pendants, from minimalist letters in 10ct gold or sterling silver, to letters spelled out in diamonds. With our new engravable jewellery range, you can also inscribe your preferred initials or even a whole name. 

3. Your zodiac sign

Another always-trending option to personalise your jewellery layers, is your zodiac sign. Our new Collectables range includes beautiful star sign pendants crafted in 10ct gold and diamonds. These exclusively designed and beautifully detailed pieces will bring personality and luxe style to your jewellery wardrobe. Our zodiac range also includes stunning, simple pendants in gold or sterling silver, so you can find the perfect one for your style.

4. Something symbolic

To add that extra special element to your jewellery look, choose a piece with a story or symbolism that speaks to you. Our Collectables range features meaningful motif pendants, including a Star, the Evil Eye, Tree of Life, and Lotus Flower – each of which have a unique story to tell. You can also find deeply meaningful designs in our exclusive Heritage Collections; or, have a jewellery piece engraved with a meaningful word or date. If it means something to you, you’ll be sure to treasure and wear it for many years to come.

5. Style up with your favourite essentials

How to bring it all together? Create your bespoke, meaningful jewellery look each day by mixing and matching your personalised jewellery pieces. Layer two or more pendants onto one chain along with your birthstone; or, layer each pendant on individual chains of different lengths. You can also layer with plain chains in your favourite precious metal, as well your other favourite jewellery such as earrings and rings, for a look that’s unique to you and that makes you feel your best.
