What Your Jewelry Says About You

what your jewelry says about you
What your jewelry says about you. Jewelry is always fun to buy. I don’t know about everyone else, but it’s a rarity for me to walk by a jewelry store without slowing down and rubber necking just a little bit. I’m pretty specific about what I put my money down for, but great jewelry is always great jewelry. There are pieces that I reach for when I’m hanging out with my friends, other pieces that are my go to for an evening out and still others that I wear if I’m going in for a business meeting. There is, however, a fairly uniform look to my jewelry collection.
what your jewelry says about you


Charms and messages. You are a dreamer who loves some inspiration in your life. Your family and friends are near and dear to your heart and you don’t care who knows, because deep down you are sentimental to your core. You aren’t very concerned with the price of your jewels but rather with their meaning. You love wearing these pieces because they remind you of where you want to go in life and they help keep you on track.

Delicate/fine. You treat your jewelry like your best supporting actor. Your jewelry represents your look, chic and sophisticated, so you crave jewelry that is streamlined, shows you off but never overwhelms you. You love pieces that are either classic or contemporary but the one thing they have in common is that they are dainty and the perfect accent which goes with everything. This might be a delicate charm that reminds you of your partner or a loved one, or it could be a little something you picked up on that memorable vacation.

Costume/fashion. Costume jewelry is fun, colourful and fleeting which means that there is little commitment to your pieces (even though you might love them). You are a woman who cannot be held down, a free spirit of sorts, who doesn’t belong to just one era. You shift from style to style with an effortless ease.

Bold/statement. You are bold and confident and you like fierce pieces that will reflect your attitude. Bright colours don’t scare you and you often seek out show stopping pieces that you love to pair even with the most casual outfits. If you gravitate to circles and open forms then chances are that reflects in your personality and you are the type of person who is always on the hunt for new experiences. If you love shine then it’s likely that you relish being noticed, are comfortable in your skin and have no problem being the center of attention.

High end/designer. You know what you love and you never compromise. You are a confident woman with a clear purpose and direction in life. You don’t buy jewelry every day, but rather seek out special pieces that have true value. Your jewelry has to have a unique character, it has to be high quality and exquisite. Unlike very trendy jewels, you know that your favourites will be with you for years to come.

Vintage. A romantic at heart, you are a woman who finds beauty and sentiment in pieces that tell a story.  A creative soul, you love intricate and exquisite details and getting lost in historical dramas.
what your jewelry says about you
You can definitely tell a lot about a woman by the jewelry she wears and I’m sure that I’m an open book that way. My secret is to always keep them guessing. Sure, I’m going to wear my charm bracelet every day and probably my blue topaz earrings as well, but just when you least expect it, I’ll show up in something totally different.

What is your go to jewelry?

  1. I can’t tell u how much i enjoyed this post. I’m a jewelry lover as well and i buy different types of jeweleries. From dainty to traditional, everything.
    Did u came up with the division of different types of jewelry wearer ,u shared here?

    1. Oh I’m so glad you liked it. I do a lot of research before writing any of my posts and most of the jewelry posts divide up the jewelry into categories like rings/earrings/bracelets etc… I knew I wanted to do something different so I half made up my own but I got my ideas from my research.

  2. Loved reading this 🙂 I prefer deicate and fine jewelry 🙂

    Check out my blog if you want: http://www.theglamandglitter.com

    Tamara xxx

    1. Thank you!!! I like delicate jewelry too but I also love a good statement piece.

    2. Thank you so much!

  3. absolutely beautiful shoes
    I posted a new post, I’d love to know your opinion
    would you like to pass from my blog?
    fashion blogger

    1. Thank you for stopping by.

  4. Let’s see: Bold, statement, attitude, comfortable in your skin – are you talking about me? 😉
    Yes, I’m that kind of girl. It doesn’t always have to be bold and big, but it sure better makes some statement. Otherwise I won’t get it.
    But then again, sometimes you just need to pearl it up! What’s a nice suit or a black dress without the elegant pearls….

    So glad you wrote this post 😉
    Luchessa @ http://luchessa.org

    1. Ha! You definitely are. The best thing about pearls is that they can be soft and demure or bold and loud! I’m glad you liked the post.

  5. If you go to Italy/France even the check out girls have gold jewellery. I have 2 rules look for bold costume jewellery but must be cheap hone your taste. Then buy real as good as you can afford. Auctions are great for jewellery . x

    1. I love that tip about buying jewelry from auctions. Vintage pieces can be so wonderful!

  6. There is nothing like quality handmade jewelry.. Gemstones, sterling silver, crystals… I love them all! Nothing trendy for me.. but even fashion and costume jewelry is special when it’s handmade!

    1. Of course it is! I love jewelry that isn’t mass produced but has some meaning behind it. Thank you!

  7. I am costume/fashion and vintage. These totally describe me. What a fun post Caroline. I’m sharing this one! Have a great week doll!!


    1. YAY! How fun. I hope you have a great week as well.
