When I turned 30 last year, I realised just how sentimental I really am. From having all my people around me to making sure I had a special memento to remind me of the past and encourage me in the future, it really brought out my sentimental side. Which is how I ended up really discovering my love for unique, sentimental pieces of jewellery.
Sentimental Jewellery for Travellers
Jewellery is something that I wear every single day, no matter my outfit or mood. It’s such a special way to celebrate, remember and symbolise something special. It’s the most sentimental accessory there is. When people find jewellery from designers like haruni, they are finding items that might be able to last them a lifetime. So last year I was looking for a pendant I could wear daily, on all my travels – something to remind me of home, but symbolise adventure at the same time. I wanted something unique and custom made, using quality materials that would last.
The Traveller Gold Pendant
I reached out to Heather at Exclusivity by Design, and together we designed The Traveller, a 9ct gold compass pendant that symbolises travel, adventure and journeys new and old, while the tiny gold diamond down South represents the absolute joy of home. It’s hand made right here in South Africa and makes the perfect gift for the traveller in your life, or something special for yourself.
You can have it crafted in yellow or rose gold, and place the diamond wherever you like. You can even have the back engraved with the name or place most special to you. You can follow @exclusivitybydesign on Instagram or visit their website if you’d like order yours. It’s one of most precious possessions and I can’t wait to see where I take it in 2019!
Exclusivity by Design have a whole range of stunning pendants to choose from, like the Stella, the Carter and the personalised Mama bar and disk, but their speciality is custom work. Anything you can dream up, they can design. I loved working with Heather, who was absolutely lovely throughout the whole process, and I’m so proud to have created this beautiful pendant with travellers like me in mind.
