How do you organise your jewellery? Stackers? Do you use different chain lengths for different necklines?! When to wear pearls?
Hey all, sorry for spamming this board today, you can probs guess my resolution is to look better in 2017!
I've bought myself one of those Stackers jewellery boxes and am loving the compartments to organise which earrings go with which necklaces!
How do you organise yours? All gold together or all earrings together or what?
Also - some of my pendants now have no chains (I break them a lot) so I have a few silver chains of different lengths and just thread the pendant on. Do you wear the same length all the time or do you change it depending on your outfit? Do you find your hair gets tangled in some chains?
Extra question - is it "ok" to wear pearls during the day or is it naff? And cubic zirconias diamonds?
I wear pearls if I feel like it, I have a string of black pearls that I love, and wore them the other day because I hadn't in a while (I read somewhere they need to be worn every now and again because they can dry out and they need the oils from your skin.) This is assuming they're real pearls, whether cultured or natural. (Mine were picked up in a charity shop for £3 years ago!) Same idea if they're faux pearls, wear them if you feel like it! Do it!
Anyway, my personal opinion is anything sparkly should be worn during the day, especially if it's sunny. That way you can dazzle everyone with the rainbows emanating from your bling. I have some rings with mahoosive cubic zirconia stones that I wear all the time. I love the rainbows!
Often the quality of the clasp will tell you if they are fake or not. Gold is rarely used for fakes.
I keep my jewellery in the boxes it came in and some in my safe. Others are in jewellery boxes in my wardrobe. I wear pearls a lot. I like quite chunky pearls! Yes to different length necklaces. I always wear longer ones with a roll neck for example. Wear diamonds when you want. Some are obviously evening only.Others are fine for day. Tiaras definitely for white tie only!!!
