Everyday Jewellery Favourites ♥

I adore jewellery; whether it's costume or delicate, I love it. Antique jewellery or antique-esque jewellery is my absolute favourite. If I ever get engaged I don't want a brand new really expensive shiny ring, instead, I'd much prefer a vintage ring picked out from an antique shop. That's what my Grandparents did & I'm very lucky to now have that ring and I think it's perfect. I haven't included it here because I don't wear it every day but I think that explains why my everyday jewellery favourites are, I was going to say simple but I'm not sure that's the right word. They're not very bling, lets put it like that.
rings
The clock ring I made myself and I'm amazed it's still in one piece. It's probably the only thing I've ever successfully managed to make that turned out right. The bird ring I got in the sale from ASOS a while ago. The gold colour is wearing off but I actually quite like the copper colour underneath, plus I can't really complain for the £2 price I paid for it.
earrings
These are a good portion of my earring collection. I don't own many pairs because I wear my hair down all the time so no one really ever sees them. The elephants are probably my favourites because, well, they're just so cute! I love getting earrings as presents; every pair I own has been a gift and I love them all. I'm easily pleased, me!

My anchor bracelet is my love! Yes it gets caught on everything, yes it's a bit impractical but I don't care because it has a huge anchor on it.

charm bracelet
The charm bracelet that these charms are on is broken, but it's the charms that I really love. For my 21st (in 2 weeks!!) I'm getting a charm bracelet and I'm going to get these 2 soldered on to it. It's a silver bracelet but I have no qualms about mixing gold and silver charms. *Cue sharp intake of breath from some people* Never been one to conform! ♥
necklaces
I think everyone and their dog has the birdcage necklace from Accessorize but I can totally see why, it's gorgeous! I love the colour of the little birdie, he's very on trend! My second necklace is also from Accessorize & it feeds my nautical obsession just nicely. I am so very predictable, I know!

What are your favourite items of jewellery?

  20. My engagement ring is my grandmothers so is really old now. I told my other half I didnt want him to buy me one as I wanted to use my grans. Its lovely and would cost a fortune to buy something similar now and I didnt see the point in wasting money! I love my charm bracelet too, I have about 15 charms now I think, as I have has it since i was born and I add one every now and then for something significant. Fingers crossed for a wedding one soon. Lol. I love your anchor bracelet, so fun!
