Minimalism & Me - Decluttering My Jewellery

Hello everyone and welcome back to another post in my Minimalism & Me series. 

This morning, I woke up and was looking at my dressing table and came to the conclusion that I just had too much jewellery that I simply did not wear. A couple of years ago, I'd gone through a stage of loving statement necklaces and so I had loads of these bulky necklaces just taking up space. I knew it was time to sort through them and decide what I wanted to keep and would actually wear. Here is the results...


I'm sad to be getting rid of this necklace because it was the first Dolly Bow Bow necklace I ever bought. However, I can't actually wear it because the metal always irritates my skin and leaves a sore looking mark whenever I have tried to. 


I'm not quite sure why I bought this one in the first place because its not really my style and I never have anything that I could wear it with. 


This was given as a gift to me and whilst I've worn it a couple of times, I'm not really a fan of the dark metal chain. 


I love this bracelet but again I just never wear it. I think its just a bit too chunky for me but its still really pretty. 


I was about 8 years old when I bought this in a second hand shop but I don't think I've ever actually worn it, so I felt like it was time to go. 


This is definitely not a real Tiffany bracelet - I bought it for about £10 in Greece. At the time I used to wear it quite a lot but the silver coating is coming off and it just doesn't look very nice anymore. 


This bracelet I won in a Christmas cracker can you believe! it contains charms of the seven wonders of the world and whilst its pretty, again its not something I would wear.

So that is everything that I'm getting rid of today. By just getting rid of those few items, I have cleared a lot of space and it looks a lot less cluttered on my dressing table. I also think showing you things I'm getting rid of is giving me more motivation because I want to show a big chunk and not just a couple of items. I've had so many lovely comments about this series and a lot of you have said its inspiring you to become more minimalist which I think is great!

Until next time

  1. I'm really interested in minimalism and it's something I'd love to look into incorporating into my life more. There's a YouTuber I watch who's a minimalist and said that minimalism isn't about having the least amount of belongings, it's about only having belongings that serve you in your life and I love that outlook on it. I love throwing stuff away anyway - I have multiple room clear-outs every year and try and get rid of as much as possible so maybe that's due again sometime soon!

    1. Ohh what channel? I'd love to get some more inspiration. Yes that's exactly how I feel! I just want the things around me that I love and need.

  2. I have like almost no jewelry! I don't accessorize much because it's extra effort that I cannot think to put forth most days. I love the pieces you presented here!

    1. To be honest, I'm the same a lot of the time. Thanks, they are pretty & I'm sad to be getting rid of them in a way!

  3. My jewellery collection is quite simple and understated. It's a shame you have so many things that you like but don't wear. It's always sad to give something up when you really like it! x

  4. You're doing a fantastic job of your decluttering! I need to go through my own jewellery at home because (like you), I used to be a big fan of larger necklaces which I just don't put on any more! I have about two pieces of simple jewellery that I wear with everything but that's all I really use!

    1. Thanks! That's a good idea though. My mum has given me quite a bit over the years.

  8. I love decluttering but I find it so difficult at the same time haha. Especially if it's something that has some small meaning behind! Luckily I only wear one necklace that my boyfriend got me 4 years ago so I don't need to worry about having loads of necklaces that I need to give away :P
