I do love a bit of personalised jewellery. C’mon, who doesn’t love wearing their own name around their neck? In fact, there is super clever evidence that proves that our brains really like hearing our own names (it’s all about the left middle frontal cortex and subgyral matter, obviously). So I got quite excited when I saw that UncommonGoods has a whole blooming section dedicated to fun personalised bits, and that excitement Twin Peaked with this stump necklace. Embrace your inner log lady and proudly display your true love’s initials, just in time for Valentine’s Day!
If you’re not down with the lumberjack vibe, don’t log off, cause I’m switching it up to sexy Morse code. SOS indeed. I love the idea of carrying a hidden message around with me, that only the nerdiest of companions might understand. The necklace seen in the picture above shows a name, but I think it would be so lovely to choose an anniversary date or a favourite saying instead. Either way, they are so subtle and beautiful!
You may think it’s all colourful dresses and hilarious puns here at She and Hem, but we’re soppy types at heart. If you follow us on Instagram, you will know that I recently got married and that Jo was one of my wonderful bridesmaids. As a little thank you present, I bought each of my bridesmaids a necklace with the exact coordinates of where we first met, and (I think) they really loved them! UncommonGoods have their own beautiful version here.
Ring a ding-ding! Another item that is perfect for Valentine’s Day is this cute hand cast Forget Me Not ring. I am positively thread over heels about that delicate silver bow, and would definitely knot forget anyone kind enough to give me this. It’s so dainty and I think it would be ideal for stacking.
I couldn’t write a round up of my favourite pieces and not include this incredible scarf. I simply cannot resist those incredibly cute vintage style illustrations. Not only is it a unique accessory, but it has my new surname on it! Valentine’s Day has taken on a whole new meaning for me now and I’m
probably definitely going to buy any novelty item of clothing with the word Valentine on it. So if you see anything, link me up please! Take a look at their immensely enjoyable scarf selection here.
This post is in collaboration with UncommonGoods, who we are very happy to work with as we love their environmentally friendly products, and that they are a bunch of jolly decent people. Keep up the good work guys!
