Your personal jewelry collection is a lifetime investment and it can be overwhelming to think about where to start. Whether you are just starting your collection or want to build around pieces you already have, here are some steps you can take to create a timeless jewelry collection that can be appreciated and cherished for years to come. 

How To Curate Your Personal Jewelry Collection 

Defining your personal style will help you decide which pieces to focus on when building your jewelry collection. Whether it’s minimalistic, eclectic or vintage that suits you, there are plenty of options to choose from to find the right ones for you. If you are having a hard time defining your style, pay attention to the pieces you currently own and love. When expanding your collection, consider the styles you already own and which pieces you gravitate towards. 

Do you wear more white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum? While mixing metals is definitely acceptable, most people have a preference; you may prefer the way one metal looks against your skin tone for example. Each metal also has its own level of characteristics such as durability and value to consider. The best way to find the best metal suited for you is to try pieces on and decide which one works with your personal style and lifestyle. 

There are a few classic pieces of jewelry that every woman should have in her collection. What you choose to incorporate into your collection is entirely up to you but there are some classic staples that can be worn every day and will stand the test of time. Each piece can be created with different metals and stones to reflect your taste and style. These pieces can be worn every day yet are adaptable for other occasions, too. 

Invest in Quality Jewelry Over Quantity

We understand that it takes time and a budget to grow your collection. Each piece should be given consideration of how it will fit into your collection and if it matches your style so you don’t regret your purchase down the road. Taking the time to ensure the quality of the piece you are adding to your collection will benefit you because the pieces will be more durable and valuable and will last longer. 

Trends come and go but we recommend investing in classic pieces that you will not get tired of and will also never go out of style. Fashion pieces are fun to incorporate into your collection, especially for special occasions, but we recommend focusing on a base of classic pieces to start. Fashion jewelry can also be combined with your classic pieces to stay on trend. 

Over time you can add meaningful and personalized pieces to your collection. It can be a gift to yourself or from a loved one to recognize anniversaries and other big life moments. We love our Diamond Name Stack Ring or Diamond Custom Date Charm Necklace because they are so personal and unique to the person wearing it. Your jewelry collection tells a story of who you are and what is important to you. Jewelry holds sentimental value and quality pieces can also be passed on from generation to generation to keep that story going.
