Hi Chloe, you’ve mentioned before how sentimental you are…tell us what jewellery means to you?
I think jewellery has the power to convey and carry meaning in a way that many other ‘things’ don’t. It’s a special thing to be able to infuse a ring, for example, with the love and protection of a family member, or a pair of earrings with the support of a best friend. I love being able to carry around memories and emotions in dainty pieces of metal and stone, and in a purely aesthetic way, I love how a relatively basic outfit can be transformed into something more unique and personal with the addition of jewellery. Popping on some rings or untangling a stack of my favourite necklaces has been a part of my morning routine for as long as I can remember, so jewellery, really, has become an important part of my identity.
We’re all about meaningful jewellery. What is your most treasured piece and why?
I have a few! One of my Mum’s old rings which we’re both fairly certain one of her old boyfriends gave her, but we’ve got no idea what it’s made of and where it’s from. I kind of like that though – I love imagining her at my age because I know we would have had the best time. It reminds me of her every day and it’s one of the most important parts of getting dressed for me. Then there’s a ring my brother and boyfriend clubbed together to buy me, and a locket with a ‘K’ for Keiran engraved on it because I’m very sentimental.
Do you prefer gold, silver, rose gold or do you like to mix it up?
I’m definitely a gold girl, although I’m becoming more open to mixing metals and trying a few more silver pieces.
What do you prefer, chunky/statement or delicate?
Delicate jewellery, but layered up. I have a few ear piercings so I love popping in a mixture of studs and hoops and creating a stacked look. The same goes for necklaces, aside from the odd chunky pendant I own; I opt for smaller, delicate pieces and then layer them up at different lengths or with different chain styles. I’m a simple dresser so I find this makes my plain tees and jeans look a thousand times more thought-out.
