Tip 22 — Narrow your collecting to a few motifs
When I started out collecting, I bought ALL THE THINGS. I quickly realized that many pieces didn’t really reflect my style and I wasn’t attached to them. You want to really love every piece you put in your jewelry box!
You can evaluate what pieces you’re most drawn to and understand why — hopefully you sort of did a version of this in the first tips.
For me, I love circular medallions (pictured), figas, snakes, hearts, Egyptian Revival, enamel, elongated Edwardian diamond rings, and opals. I’m probably forgetting some, but these categories are what I usually buy.
