In this special guest post, we take a rummage through the jewellery box of style blogger Kerry who maintains the gorgeous A Little Fashion Romance . . .
"I am a costume jewellery kind of girl. And I have tons of it. Not that I wear it all, as to be honest I am quite boring when it comes to jewellery. This is largely due to the fact that I am very likely to lose and/or break pieces that come gift wrapped and with a hefty price tag. It is also because I feel quite silly in 'posh' jewellery. I am however, lucky in the sense that my boyfriend feels that I worth more than a Primark necklace. I have a few special pieces that if I am honest, I do not wear because they are too special to me for day to day use."
"What I do wear, I wear everyday and feel naked without. These include two friendship bracelets, one of which I made for my boyfriend and I on New Years day 2010 in matching threads. It is quite cheesy really, but special to us, as well as being a competition between us to see how long they last and which one breaks first… it will probably be mine. I also won two friendship bracelets after entering Following Rabbits blog competition, one of which once again, I gave to my boyfriend."
"My watch was a present from my boyfriend last Christmas. As I am drawn towards quite pretty, vintage inspired, girly outfits I love that it is so different to my normal attire. It is a bright, bold, cheery colour that can be such a contrast to my quite neutral outfits."
"My ring, which I also wear every day - though do have a habit of losing, a lot - was also a present from my boyfriend which he gave me two years into our relationship. It is not something I would have chosen for myself, but I love it because the love of my life decided he wanted to give it to me and that he thought I would like it, which is all that matters.
I adore bangles and wear them constantly…"
"Another cherished item is a silver heart shaped necklace, although I only wear it on certain occasions, a fact that makes wearing it so much more special. It was the first Christmas present given to me by my boyfriend (again!) back in 2007. Once again, it is not something I would have chosen for myself and I feel it is too special to wear all the time. But I adore it, it means so much to me that at a time when we were young, with little money he brought me such a good piece of jewellery when we had not been dating for long. I always wear this necklace when I feel I need some luck, such as exams or interviews, as well as times that are special to us, such as our birthdays and anniversaries."
"I know that I will love and adore these pieces for years to come."
