Hello everyone! For today’s post I wanted to do something completely different to what I’ve done before; and share with you my collection of jewellery pieces from Pandora, but instead of just showing you what I have I wanted to share with you the meaning and memories behind each piece. I think that jewelry is such a special thing, not just because of how it looks and it’s materialistic qualities, but the fact that each and every piece has a story, a reason – a meaning behind it.
I first got my Pandora necklace for my 18th birthday from my parents; along with a charm that will most likely always remain my favourite. Up until getting my Pandora, I’d never really been the type of person to invest deep thought and time into selecting jewellery, and it’s never meant anything much to me. But this was my 18th birthday, it meant something, it was special – and the charm I chose reflected that.
I got my next charm when I first met my now boyfriend, which was the day after my 18th birthday. This was such a big moment as up until that day, we had been speaking long distance. I had no idea that he would have bought me a Pandora charm, and the one he chose reflected me; it was a simple but special charm.
My third charm was purchased on a family holiday, which was right before I left for university. This holiday was particularly meaningful to me, and the fact that a few days after returning home I would be moving away from home for the first time, made the time I spent with them all the more precious. I got a charm with my birthstone on, and every single time I wear it it instantly reminds me of who I am, and the amazing support network of family I have around me.
My final piece of jewellery from Pandora is some earrings that I was given as one of my Christmas presents 2015. These earrings mark the fact that these are the first ‘nice’ or good quality pair of earrings I’ve ever chosen for myself, as previously I was never too fussed about where they came from. The fact that I got these earrings that Christmas carries along with it the memories of how low I was feeling about different aspects in my life, and how much a Christmas at home surrounded by my family was exactly what rejuvenated me, and brought back my spirit and motivation to enter the new year.
I hope that you all enjoyed this post, despite the fact it may be a little out of the ordinary. I just feel that its really nice, and important, to think about what your possessions mean to you; and reflect the good things in your life. Thank you so much for reading, and let me know in the comments what you think of this kind of post!
