Why You Should Buy Jewellery for Yourself!

Treating yourself to fine jewellery:

One of the orders I love receiving most from customers is an item that a woman is ordering for herself – because she simply deserves it. It is an empowering act, as women, to invest in ourselves and work hard for our education, careers, houses, apartments and more. The same should be said for treating yourself to a beautiful piece of jewellery, one that can be worn and cherished for the rest of your life. If there is a specific ring, necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings you have always dreamed of having, then you should go and get it… yourself!

Receiving jewellery from a loved one is a very special experience… but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to treat yourself to something too. Buying your first piece of fine jewellery is incredibly exciting and there is sure to be something that fits your style and budget perfectly. Engagement rings and tennis bracelets aren’t the only pieces that count as special occasion jewellery, though. Here are a few unique ideas of fine jewellery to treat yourself to!

The Right Hand Ring

The right hand ring is exactly as it sounds – a ring worn on the right hand. But it’s actually more than that. The right hand ring represents independence.

There are no rules for what it needs to look like, which gives the wearer all the creative freedom. This beautiful Varnaya Vatina ring combines vivacious and colorful sapphires and makes for the ultimate treat yourself ring.

Birthstone Jewellery

Birthstones are incredibly popular when it comes to picking out jewellery for ourselves or a loved one. It gives instant meaning to the piece by signifying the month we were born. The story behind the origination of birthstones dates back to the breastplate of Aaron, which was adorned with twelve different gemstones, representing the signs of the zodiac and 12 Israeli tribes. Since then, the National Association of Jewelers has created a modern list for the different months and birthstones. Each stone has an incredibly rich history and symbolism to different civilizations and time periods.

At Anpé Atelier Cph we use semi-precious and precious gemstones with a high hardness on the Mohs Scale. Using these stones that are well suited for fine jewellery ensures that we are creating pieces, that will last a lifetime and more.

How To Build Your Own Fine Jewellery Collection

Buying fine jewellery is a long term investment, and if you’re looking to start a jewellery collection, don’t settle for the most affordable choice. When picking jewellery, you’ll definitely want high quality, and that only comes with fine jewellery. It is more expensive indeed, but it is worth every penny.

Fine jewellery is used to describe jewellery made out of precious metals and often times it consists precious and semi-precious gemstones as well. At Anpé Atelier we use only solid gold in 14kt and 18kt, which are hard metals, that won’t break with normal wear. If something should happen to your piece, the hard metal makes it is easy to repair and rework.

While solid gold pieces can be expensive, it is well worth the investment to have something stunning that lasts a lifetime, and can be passed down through generations. On top of that, it more than holds the value throughout time.

Here are some ways to start your own personal fine jewellery collection (but really, there are no rules, so go nuts, if you’re all comfortable):

1. Know what you like and don’t mind other people’s opinion
Everyone’s taste is different from each other, and the fun part about building a fine jewellery collection and investing in high quality pieces is, that you can wear it every day and be all happy about it, when glancing down at it.

2. Start off with a small piece first
Just to get started and to feel the difference between having a fine jewellery piece and a fashion jewellery piece. 

3. Go after something, that matches your style from the beginning
And choose something that you can see yourself wear for many years! Style and taste is different from person to person, and only you will know, what matches you and your colorful self. 

4. Wish for jewellery for special occasions
A great way to slowly build your own personal fine jewellery collection is to wish for fine jewellery for special occasions, such as birthdays, holidays, graduations and anniversaries. Having a special moment attached to a piece of jewellery brings more incentive to wear and show it off, as well as keep it for a lifetime. 

5. Treat yourself
And speaking of special occasions, treat yourself with fine jewellery to celebrate yourself. Fine jewellery doesn’t require a special occasion or someone else giving it to you. It can also be amazing to treat yourself with a special piece – just because you deserve it, have reached a personal goal in your life, gone through a hard time or simply because you’re in love with a piece and want to make yourself happy with it.

6. Mix and match
Depending on your style, try to find pieces that you can wear together! Find rings that look great next to each other or stacked on top of each other so you can pair them wherever you go, and whenever you feel like it. Mixing and matching multiple earrings on your ear is also a great way to add some extra sparkle and color.

7. One of a kind
Once you have a few key pieces in your collection, start to venture towards a unique, one of a kind and stunning piece – maybe even a customized piece, you’re doing for yourself. Though this is an investment piece, it adds a stunning look to your style, and you can easily wear your unique pieces together with your other amazing jewellery pieces.

8. Add color
Don’t be afraid to add some color to your jewellery. Many people think that investing in fine jewellery means only gold and diamonds. At Anpé Atelier, diamonds come second to stunningly unique and colorful gemstones, primarily sapphires, tourmalines, tsavorites and spinels. The colors are truly endless for gemstones to choose from, meaning anyone can find a color that suits them. Colorful pieces are rare and unique in the fine jewellery industry, so investing in one will make for a great talking piece and something you won’t see anyone else having.
