I am all about reconnecting with our talismans – the pieces we never take off. Because it’s the wardrobe items we wear consistently and on repeat that have the least impact on the planet and the most impact on our sense of self.

Traditionally, a talisman is “an object… that is thought to have magic powers and to bring good luck,” according to the online Oxford Dictionary. Usually, that object would be a piece of jewellery or a particular stone – but I like to think of all accessories as talismans. And even beyond accessories, a lucky garment could also function as a talisman – a certain kind of style armour.

Personally, jewellery is my talisman – particularly those pieces that have been passed down through the generations, or made by those I love. Like my Cartier Tank watch, inherited from my mother. Or the sustainable keshi pearls made by dear friend Holly Ryan for my wedding day.

Then there is the pair of tiny gold and ruby hoops, crafted by my friend Leo using the gold from my grandmother’s original wedding band. These hoops were a wedding gift and they are among the pieces I never take off, along with the Leo Black wedding band that now houses my grandmother’s diamond.

“Jewellery is talismanic because it lasts longer than clothes and, therefore, carries with it a special sort of history.”

A newer acquisition, but one equally talismanic for me is the rose gold fob chain, gifted to me by my husband to mark my 29th birthday. My mother has always worn a fob chain, since as long as I can remember, and so did my grandmother before her. So, although my vintage fob wasn’t directly passed down by them, it still feels part of a long and storied lineage. These are the pieces that impart a certain power when I put them on.

To me, jewellery is talismanic because it lasts longer than clothes and, therefore, carries with it a special sort of history. Trends in jewellery move more slowly than they do in fashion and these pieces also tend to be more sentimental – passed down by loved ones or received as precious gifts, to mark personal milestones.

On top of this, the raw materials of jewellery never lose their value, because they can be melted down and repurposed into something new. Just like my grandma’s gold and diamond ring – since repurposed into the teensy hoops and classic band I wear everyday.

This is why I will always invest in jewellery over clothing. These timeless, versatile talismans have come to define my personal style. And they are all I need to make me feel dressed of a morning.
