A signature accessory is often a piece of jewellery that can be worn day in and day out. It’s a piece that is synonymous with you, perhaps one that people would be surprised to see you without. But how do you choose these key pieces? What do you look out for? Read on for a few tips and tricks to help you choose the perfect signature accessory.
What Should It Look Like?
This needs to be an item fit for and worthy of daily wear, so it needs to be practical for you. That might depend on what job you’re doing, and how your days pan out. Something too long, or too loud isn’t going to cut the mustard. Is it more convenient for you to piece together some layered necklaces or a subtle ring? In addition to practicality, of course, it needs to be an item that you love and that keeps you feeling that little spark of joy when you reach for it every morning. It’s worthwhile doing research and creating a mood board of jewellery that you like. This may help you to see a pattern in the styles you lean towards.
Will It Fit Your Wardrobe?
As well as being practical for your day-to-day life, your jewellery should also be a piece that goes with everything you already own. Due to this, it’s often a good idea to go for a subtle piece, but if that’s not your style, throw caution to the wind. The main thing is that you’ll love it and want to wear it all. the. time.
Does it Hold Meaning?
When choosing a signature piece, it’s common to lean towards items that hold sentimental value to you. This could be because it was gifted or handed down, or it could simply be because you felt a special affinity to the creator and their story. If you have some special sentimental pieces that you want to refresh, Chapter 79 can take a cherished item of jewellery, and design a new piece using the precious elements from the original. This is a perfect option for items handed down that don’t quite fit your everyday style.
How Does It Make You Feel?
Once you have an idea in mind, you can start to consider how the piece will make you feel. Will it make you feel elegant and done up? Will it make you feel natural and like yourself? There’s no right answer here, so long as it’s making you feel how you want it to. If you want to feel a little more refined in your everyday life, make sure the piece you choose fits the bill!
Lastly, you’ll want to be considerate of what materials you choose. High-quality metals, for example, will be able to sustain more wear and tear, and so are ideal for daily use.
Above all, just follow your instincts – you don’t need to overthink it! There’s no one way to choose your signature piece; it can be all about the meaning or all about the look, or simply all about how it makes you feel.
Once you have chosen a signature piece, enjoy it and wear it to your heart’s content!
