The word jewellery originates from a French word “joaillerie” which means joy and happiness. And it is said that one’s sole purpose in life should be happiness! Does that ring a bell? Well yes, if being happy is directly proportional to jewellery; I would suggest everyone to splurge on this beautiful creation as much as they can. The mantra to keep in mind, while building your jewellery collection is “More is less”. Whether it’s having the in-trend pieces or your precious vintage item handed down by your mom, but when it comes to a jewellery wardrobe, there are some “Must Haves” without which your collection would be incomplete.
