One of the things we love most about the Celebration Pendant is its versatility. We really believe it would look just as good on rock chick Kate Moss as it would on elegant Kate Middleton.
However, irrespective of personal style, we have noticed that there are certain traits which mean the Celebration Pendant would be a great fit for you. Read on to see if you recognise yourself in this list …
1. You look after things
Yes, the Celebration Pendant is exceptionally well made. In fact, we say it is made to last “beyond a lifetime”, and become a future heirloom, telling your family story and keeping it alive for future generations. BUT as with anything, it will get damaged if you don’t look after it.
Here is a pendant which was dropped onto a hard floor. You can see that the top was bent out of shape, and there is a mark on the side of the pendant.
Luckily, because it is real jewellery, damage like this can usually be repaired, but of course there is a time and monetary cost to this, and it’s never pleasant to think you might have damaged something you treasure.
There is also another angle to this. We were chatting to a lady recently who told us she never buys expensive jewellery, as she always loses it. We could not honestly advise her to purchase a Celebration Pendant, as she is happiest buying inexpensive pieces and not worrying if they go missing.
We have noticed that when people own fewer, better quality pieces, they tend to look after them. But if you know you often lose things, it probably does make sense to invest your money elsewhere.
2. You value quality and individuality
This is simple, really.
- Are you more bean to bar, or Dairy Milk?
- Original art, or reproductions?
- Farrow & Ball, or Dulux?
Of course you don’t have to be a brand-obsessed elitist to love the Celebration Pendant. We are huge fans of mixing high with low, and let’s not forget that the pendant originally came about while founder Susie Jones was in the midst of a Smarties addiction, so we certainly aren’t above mass-market brands. But if you get goosebumps at the thought of owning something unique, personal, hand made by some of the world’s best craftspeople, that not everyone else has, then you should consider a Celebration Pendant.
3. You value attention to detail in design
The Celebration pendant is a luxuriously domed shape, and it is beautiful from every angle. The top rotates, giving the pendant movement. It is reassuringly, strokeably, heavy. Even the hallmark has been placed in the least obtrusive position so as not to impose upon the beautifully smooth sides.
If you’re a person who gets goosebumps at the amount of care and attention to detail that has gone into a piece of work, the Celebration Pendant will probably excite you.
4. You are happy to wait
The Celebration Pendant is hand made to order, so depending what you have on it it can take 6-8 weeks to be made. Like a good piece of cheese, we believe this is worth waiting for, so if you’re a 30 month aged Parmesan kind of person, we might be for you!
5. You enjoy wearing a timeless, signature piece
You’ve probably noticed that the most stylish people have a signature style, whether it’s Anna Wintour’s immaculate bob, sunglasses, kitten heels and layered collet necklaces, Carine Roitfeld’s leather pencil skirts, slinky blouses, smoky eyes and vampish shoes, or Michelle Obama’s A-line dresses, bright colours and bare arms.
Truly stylish women know that it is not about slavishly following designer looks, but knowing what suits you, and what you love – and that is what this is about. If this is you (or you aspire to it!), the Celebration Pendant is a gorgeous addition to your look.
6. You believe “buy nice or buy twice”
There is a big move away from consuming throwaway items, to taking care to purchase things which will last. This is summed up by the Buy Me Once philosophy, which is to “to radically shift habits from short-term buying to long-term buying”, in order to spend less money over a lifetime, and be kinder to out planet.
7. You’re a “cost per wear” ninja
If you treat every day as “best”, and wear your favourite pieces as often as you can, you’ll love the idea of a pice of jewellery you can wear every day to any occasion.
8. You love vintage
Celebration Pendants are the antiques of the future, so if you love the idea of your jewellery and story appearing on Antiques Roadshow 100 years from now, you’re in the right place.
9. You love the Celebration Pendant
The most important factor … if you really love the Celebration Pendant (and we can hardly blame you if you do!), then that is the best possible reason to treat yourself to one. You’re definitely worth it!
