Your Jewellery Personality

Source

We all wear jewellery for a range of reasons including matching our mood, showcasing recent gifts (or love tokens) and enhancing our appearance. When we are shopping we also are all attracted to different pieces of jewellery.

While our jewellery case may contain a range pf pieces and styles, it is likely that the overall collection will tend towards a favorite theme. And that theme may well tell us something about ourselves as a person and a jewellery wearer...

Don't forget to take our quiz at the end to find out your jewellery personality!
