If these last 16 months have taught us anything, it’s that the little things matter. We’ve taken a lot for granted in the past (visiting family, making plans, even getting dressed up!); with a new sense of gratitude for our next outing, it’s time to begin refreshing our closets and jewellery boxes for a fresh start. With that in mind, here are three reasons to make your next jewellery purchase personal—plus, our top picks from one of our favourite local jewellery brand, Leah Yard Designs! —Vita Daily
reason #1: celebrate someone else. Wearing someone else’s initial or star sign is a way to honour them. When we look at a sentimental piece, it acts as a daily reminder of someone special. These little prompts can nudge us into sending “thinking of you” messages and making someone’s day brighter. Our top pick: pieces from Leah Yard Designs’ Zodiac Collection.
reason #2: share your journey. We’re storytellers. We connect through our struggles and celebrations. When we wear a piece of jewellery that signifies an event in our lives, it gives us an opportunity to share with others. Gemstones carry deep meaning. Because of their rich symbolism, Leah Yard created a charm collection so you can curate your own tale. Add these gems to tell your story. Our top pick: pieces from Leah Yard Designs’ Gemstone Charm Collection.
reason #3: add confidence. Did you recently overcome something? Got a promotion? Acquired a new skill during lockdown? Many of us brush off personal wins and move onto the next challenge without honouring our achievements. Celebrate with a gift to yourself. When we recognize our wins we get a confidence boost. Why not add some sparkle to boot? Our top pick: pieces from Leah Yard Designs’ Monogram Collection.
