As I write my final university assignment I find myself almost giddy with anticipation about finally graduating. I can’t help but wonder what shoes I should wear or which Tom Ford lipstick goes with a graduation gown…
Although, with the distress of finding the perfect dress comes the indulgence of picking out a graduation gift. Naturally, I wanted to choose something that will last a lifetime seeing as that’s how long my degree seemed to take… Therefore, I began considering jewellery and that’s when the redefined Links of London Sweetie Bracelet became my new #chicvibesonly accessory. What I love most about this bracelet is that it can be personalised, which was the kind of distinctive attribute I was looking for.
When it came to designing my Sweetie, I took to their online ‘bracelet builder,’ which allows you to choose from a huge selection of charms and rings to create and visualise your bracelet. I instantly added gold-tone rings, since I like to wear both gold and silver jewellery. As I scrolled through the various charms available, I was truly spoilt for choice and so I dashed to the nearest Links of London store to get a richer view and that’s when I discovered the Rainbow Zebra…
For someone who never used to wear colour, I now can’t get enough of it and as I feel more like myself every time I wear a bright tangerine ruffle t-shirt, I can honestly say the multi-coloured zebra is the essence of me! This colourful sterling silver wonder is my favourite charm from the Sweetie collection and one that I knew I just had to have. Once in store, I learnt that some charms can be engraved and so unsurprisingly, I went for ‘EKD’ on the sterling silver disc because, are you even chic if your jewellery isn’t monogrammed?
Choosing an extraordinary gift for a special occasion such as a graduation or milestone birthday can be really challenging, as you want something you will never fall out of love with… Rings and charms can be easily interchanged with the iconic Sweetie Bracelet and Links of London will even re-string it and so you’re guaranteed to have a timeless bracelet that you’ll reach for everyday. As you know, I build my wardrobe around investment pieces and so I’m really excited to add this to my collection because I know I’ll be wearing and personalising it for years to come. The Links of London Sweetie is luxurious, fun and exudes my personal style… it’s my perfect graduation gift.
If I were a floral arrangement I would be this vibrant posy and if I were a Sweetie charm, I’d be the multi-coloured zebra! Also, I’m thinking Tom Ford True Coral lipstick and THESE AMAZING SHOES for my graduation, what do you think… #chicvibesonly right?
