Sponsored post in association with Thomas Sabo.
I have always had a thing for accessorising with jewellery, even as a child. I may have left the days of pink plastic rings and sweet-based necklaces behind but only to move onto things with extra sparkle. Thomas Sabo has been a place for me to buy jewellery from over the years for myself and as gifts. I like visiting their store in the Bullring for a browse and often check out their window displays to see what it new.
They might be known for their silver charm bracelets but Thomas Sabo has grown somewhat to include classic styles such as an eternity bracelet and fashionable items such as their newly launched chokers. As my jewellery style has changed over time, I have still found myself back at Thomas Sabo as there are still pieces that excite me and bring me joy. And with silver jewellery like this, I find that they last much better than costume pieces.
The new range of friendship bracelets is so cute and I was immediately drawn to the way that so many of the designs can be engraved in a variety of ways for free. I went for a simple bar design in the Little Secrets collection with a lotus flower engraved on it. I like how subtle the engraving is on this design. The Chinese knots make these bracelets really easy to remove and fit on my wrist and the cord feels really secure too despite its slim appearance.
Having slim wrists means that I am slightly too obsessed with finding the perfect bracelets to stack together. I don’t want anything that is too bulky or ill-fitting. Thankfully the Thomas Sabo range does accommodate my wrists easily so I wear my new friendship bracelet with a simple silver chain, that could easily hold a charm if I wished, and an identity bracelet from the Love Bridge collection.
I decided on having my name engraved on the Love Bridge bracelet for simplicity. And because as a child, there were never any items with my name on them in the gift shops so it is still something of a novelty to have my name on a personalised piece of jewellery. I did have some fun scrolling through the many options for engraving though, which included several fonts for lettering through to symbols and phrases.
I love eternity rings for their simplicity and this elegant ring is so pretty. I love how the cubic zirconia gems create extra sparkle from the setting but the tiny claws ensure that every stone is secure. I like wearing this ring on my index finger but there are so many sizes in this style that it could be worn in a variety of ways or even stacked.
For some everyday sparkle, I love wearing simple stud earrings. My hair is somewhat of a statement so I like the contrast with something classic and simple. These silver and cubic zirconia studs are a lovely size that I find really versatile. I can wear these at day or night and they go with everything.
I feel that my day to day silver jewellery choices from Thomas Sabo work well with my wedding ring and the silver ring that Mr Ting made for me last Christmas. I have worn mixed metals before but I prefer to wear to wear everything in a silver colour. I find it more elegant and I like the way it looks against my skin tone.
What jewellery do you like to wear day to day? Do you like to mix your metals or do you prefer to stick to one colour metal?
