Minimalist Jewellery Capsule Wardrobe
Since a lot of us have really taken to the life changing art of tidying up over the last year I thought why not throw a simple suggestion to you that your jewellery wardrobe shouldn't be ignored in the overhaul of your home and wardrobe...after all reducing and planning your capsule pieces is so freeing, knowing what pieces truly are staples of style helps you save time and money by knowing exactly what to buy or put on your gift list!
I have spent days and days trawling through all aspects of my life and home and reducing items within to those that spark joy or have true meaning, memory or fulfil a purpose.
This brought obviously brought me to my jewellery collection.
As a huge part of my life, jewellery seems to find itself everywhere in my home, and I thought it was about time to really look at my jewellery collection with fresh eyes and build a capsule wardrobe of jewellery that can see me through.
Lets start with clearing out, unless of course you are holding onto something for sentimental reasons, take anything that is broken and either get quoted for repair or repurpose by a manufacturing jeweller or remove it, throw it away, trade it in (especially if its high value metal)
Assess your metals, do you wear gold, silver or rose gold tones?
What pieces do you wear every day without fail?
Are the pieces in your jewellery wardrobe comfortable to wear? Do they fit?
From there, its time to begin to create a capsule....
There are classic pieces of jewellery that find a home in almost any wardrobe
Our gorgeous, minimal and sophisticated range of capsule pieces from Republic Road, were designed specifically for the purpose of a quality capsule collection of jewellery for the modern woman.
Take a look and see which sparks joy for you!
All pieces are made from the highest quality sterling silver, finished with rhodium or a 2micron 14k gold plate, in addition to gold plating we also have some pieces available in a14k 2 micron rose gold plate, and any of the below pieces can be custom ordered in other precious metal (ie 9ct, 14, 18ct gold, rose gold, white gold etc!)
