As I’ve grown older, I’ve been focusing on investing in timeless fashion pieces that I won’t have to replace after a year.
One area I’d been seriously lacking in is jewelry. I’m the queen of buying $3 dollar rings and $10 dollar necklaces. The problem? They’re beautiful but after a few wears they turn copper and give my skin a green tinge.
I’ve recently bought myself a nice quality rings and have been gifted some delicate necklaces. What I’m lacking was statement jewelry.
I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Sequin Jewelry and try out a few of their pieces and have fallen in love.
First things first: I’ll let you in on a few things about me
- I’m all about zodiac and horoscopes. I’m a proud gemini and identify with the good and the bad that comes with it. I am as indecisive as anything, overly affectionate, and communicate best through writing.
- I love gold jewelry. But my cheap gold jewelry turns copper in just a few wears.
- I’m sentimental. Probably too sentimental. I have a section of my closet and jewelry drawer that I treat with special care. Why? So I can pass them down to my potential future teenage daughter.
When it comes to buying jewelry, I want: something that expresses my personal style and that I’ll be able to hold onto for a long time.
Enter Sequin Jewelry.
While their site boasts more beautiful styles than you can imagine, I was instantly drawn to their Star Maps Line, because like I said, I’m a proud gemini.
My first thought? These necklaces would be the perfect gift for that hard to buy for lady in your life. I usually find myself buying something generic for the hard-to-buy-for people in my life. But how perfect are these necklaces? They’re personalized enough that they show you’ve put thought into them, and classic enough that they’ll fit a lot of different tastes unlike louder statement pieces.
With that said, I couldn’t help but buy this Gemini necklace for myself this time around.
I love the personality descriptors on the cards and the beautiful attention to detail.
Sequin’s talisman necklaces
Additionally, I picked out a stunning talisman necklace with a starburst design. Their Dream Talisman is said to enhance creativity and unlock your imagination, two things that are very important to me given my job as a content creator. I love jewelry that has a meaning and that I can wear intentionally when I’m in a creative slump.
Again, their talisman necklaces would make a great gift. For example, say you have a friend moving away for an exciting new job opportunity: Sequin’s Evil Eye necklace would be a perfect gift as the evil eye is known for its powers of protection and ability to repel negative energies. The necklace with a note saying, “Since I won’t be around to protect you, here’s the next best thing.” could be a sweet gift for a great friend.
Invest in jewelry that will last
I’ve been talking a bit about sustainable buying lately. I’ve realized that it doesn’t make sense to buy things knowing that they’re cheap so you’ll have to replace them in a year or two.
Sequin jewelry is made out of beautiful, high quality material like 22K gold and crystals. The necklaces sturdier than something you might buy at a fast fashion store. Based on the quality and durability, I expect to own these necklaces for decades.
