MY JEWELLERY COLLECTION | PART THREE

June 30, 2017


My final jewellery instalment features the one thing I can never, ever go a day without - my ring collection. I am forever asked why I wear so many and have sarcy comments thrown at me all the time like, 'do you have enough rings?!' I remember leaving them at home once after getting up for work at 6am, far to tired to remember putting my jewellery on. That day was excruciating, I constantly felt naked and kept getting in a state of worry thinking I had lost them somewhere. They are the only thing I could never go a day without, so every time I leave the house I check them off my imaginary list - phone, wallet, keys, rings...

As for why I wear so many, I honestly don't know. I've never though about it before so excuse me while I try to figure it out... Maybe it's a hobby, collecting different pieces and spending money I've worked hard for on something I can treasure forever. I also think jewellery adds to personality and style. As I love rock 'n' roll, having a skull and cross bones seemed appropriate, but if I wore a huge sparkly number it wouldn't be me, so they definitely add something to personal style (future husband take notes). I think men like Johnny Depp and Keith Richards encouraged me to start wearing rings at a young age. These were the two men that got me into over sized shirts, head scarfs and wide brim hats, so they probably influenced my jewellery obsession too. There could be many reasons as to why I cover myself in jewellery, but all I know is it's a great passion of mine and makes me truly feel myself.










On to the rings themselves, I'm going to rave about Bloody Mary Metal just one  more time. BMM haven't only been the source of my necklace, but they've also made a mark on my rings. I'm wearing the classic Crossbones ring which has become stupidly popular within the past two years. Every blogger keen on filling their fingers is probably wearing one of these, and if not this one then another from their beautiful website. Since shooting these photos I got gifted the Ziggy ring as a leaving gift from my friends back in Bristol. It matches my necklace and I'm so smitten with it.

My skull was bought in Barcelona as a joint purchase with my boyfriend. We wanted something we could have as a memory from our trip, luckily we both had wanted a skull for a while so it seemed like the perfect choice, and suited us both down to the ground. Having this skull has made me lust over The Great Frog and their incredible handmade pieces even more though. I'm so eager to save and buy one from their collection, but it'll take a lot of saving for one of those.

The ring that graces my wedding finger - I know, I've cursed myself; belonged to my grandma. I had it passed down to me and it's quite honestly an item I treasure most. Everyone should be blessed enough to have a piece of jewellery that has been handed down in their family for years, it's a special feeling and I'm so fortunate to be trusted with it. This is the only gold piece I have in my collection but I love that, it makes a statement and stands out from the rest. It's also quite strange that the diamond is black, which happens to be something I'd like my wedding ring to have, still taking notes future husband?...

My other rings aren't as special, but I still love them. If you're looking to start up your own collection then these ones are far more affordable, but still super cool. Head to various high street stores like Brandy Melville and Topman for stainless steal and plated rings. Stay away from trendy, costume pieces and spend extra money on silver that wont turn your finger green or rust within a few weeks. You may think of pound signs when someone says silver or gold, but they aren't always on the pricey side. My turquoise stone ring from Brandy Melville was only £6, I've had it for two years and it's not shown any signs of wear or rusting, that's because it's aluminium free! My thumb ring is ancient and from Topman, known for it's cheap and cheerful jewellery. Again, it's still in perfect condition. I suggest hitting up the sales and finding some cheap bits to try out before investing, Topman being one I really recommend. The high street can honestly be an absolute savour at times!
