I am very excited to be writing this blog about 'The Importance of Jewelry" for you all to read. After doing some online research and reaching out to our Sincere Sally family I realised that there is so much meaning behind wearing jewelry and the importance of this is different to everyone!
For me, I wear a very sentimental locket every day. This locket was my mums and she gifted this to me when I moved out of home to go and study in a different city. I have worn this locket pretty much every day (minus like 10 haha) since she gave it to me. This locket lays very close to my heart and I feel very bare when I am not wearing it.
The history of jewelry dates back to the medieval days which presented jewelry as a universal form of adornment and protection. Wearing jewelry declared wealth and power, but also love and protection. Modern day studies show that wearing jewelry enhances an individuals confidence by 80%. Feedback from our Sincere Sally customers can definitely prove this 🙈.
I want to share with you our Sincere Sally families thoughts about this topic:

Jewelry is an essential. It adds a pop to any and every outfit, from earrings to necklaces, to waist beads or anklets! It’s everywhere now and even back in the day, jewelry was a sign of wealth and power and that’s exactly how jewelry makes me feel; confident and expensive! -even if the jewelry may not be. Also, makes a very heart warming gift! That can but doesn’t have to be personal, its also just something I know always puts a smile on my face. That’s the importance of jewelry, it’s to add a little spice to your style and make you feel fancy, confident and most importantly happy!
Camila Dan, Orlando Florida, 19 y.o
For me, jewelry is art, it is expressing who I am by putting my own personal style on it. The best part of my day when I get dressed is including jewelry in my outfit, it makes me feel more elegant regardless of whether my outfit would be either casual or more professional. The feeling is being able to add my "The cami's glamour" to my outfits because is what makes myself more who I am . I like to combine rings, necklaces and bracelets to my outfit. I like to feel fashion and chic every moment I can.
Mana Faye, United States, 20 y.o
Jewelry is a persons best friend. It can take even a plain black outfit and elevate it in so many different ways! I love the fact that jewelry makes me feel royal, especially gold! No matter who you are, jewelry can make you feel beautiful at every occasion and once you start pairing it with your outfits, I promise you’ll never stop!
Tahjiana jordá High, United States, 20 y.o
Jewelry is important to me for two reasons, one being that I feel confident every time I’m wearing it. The second reason being that wearing jewelry gives me a sense of inspiration when I’m taking photos. It’s like when I add the accessory, my pictures become art pieces. That’s why, to me, jewelry is important and I don’t think I could live without it ❤️
LaTeasha Brost, United States, 23 y.o
Jewelry is so important to me because not only does it complete my outfit, but it makes me feel more confident and beautiful!
Aria Megumi, United States, 16 y.o
I love your jewelry because not only does it feel and look good on me but it is also amazing quality! Sincere Sally has jewelry that would look amazing on anyone and that’s what I love so much about it!
Salome Ekangyela, Canada, 22 y.o
Jewelry is symbolic to me in a way that it helps express my identity and personality. I love wearing items that represent my values and interests.
Hassanah Zakiyah, United States, 26 y.o
To me, jewelery is so important. Finding those perfect pieces that accentuate the natural beauty you were born with is so major for building your confidence. That is something that I have personally learned as time has gone on. Sometimes I don’t feel quite complete without a little bit of gold bling picking through any outfit I’m wearing. To me jewelry is the BFF that will always have your back. 💛
Halla Fournier, United States, 30 y.o
Jewelry is everything! Can’t leave the house without it. I have pieces that have sentimental value (belonged to my mother and grandmother) and pieces that help me feel more confident/beautiful. I feel like it always helps enhance a persons beauty and it’s a form of creative expression.
Kierstyn Kiley Posada, United States, 18 y.o
What jewelry means to me, is adding a special touch to each outfit. If you’re having second thoughts on an outfit, and you might want to change, add a touch of jewelry to spice it up. Jewelry makes everything better even if it’s as small as a ring.
Rena Costello, United States, 19 y.o
Jewelry makes me feel more confident and fashionable! I love incorporating jewelry in my outfits because you can wear it with anything! When I’m not feeling the best mentally, I don’t dress up as much, so I love adding jewelry like necklaces, rings, and earrings as it makes me feel more confident with whatever I'm wearing! Jewelry, to me, is so much more than just an object!
Angel Samuels, United States, 20 y.o
The importance of jewelry to me is the perfect topping to finish off my outfit with full satisfaction. I’m a big fan of gold jewelry specifically because of the way it’s very flashy and matches my skin tone to perfection. I feel as though as soon as you find the right type of jewelry that fits your needs, you’re going to be feeling so much more better about yourself and the way it just compliments your skin. One of the most beautiful thing about jewelry is that if it is gifted to you, it’s not only going to be just a piece of jewelry but it’s going to help connect you with memories and loved ones. All in all, for me, gold jewelry makes me feel radiant, fresh, attractive and most of all it is a huge confidence booster and once you find the right jewelry for you, you will feel the same too! ❤️✨
Georgia Groves, Australia, 25 y.o
To me jewellery is the statement piece of my outfit, it sets everything together. Earrings, necklaces, rings bring that pop of bling and confidence when I go out! I love how well sincere Sally jewellery pairs with my engagement ring! I feel so beautiful and elegant!
Glory Korsah, Canada, 26 y.o
To me the importance of jewellery is the final touch to complete an outfit. I never feel complete when I don’t have a pair of earrings on at all times. Depending on the outfit, There are so many different styles, shapes and colours of earrings, necklaces, rings, anklets etc to bring your outfit alive and a touch that makes you unique.
Josana Joseph, United States, 37 y.o
Jewelry has many symbolic meanings and can represent many things to different people. I believe the most important thing for me about jewelry and wearing it is making sure it speaks to me with positivity. Three ways jewelry can and does achieve this:
1. Having a faith based meaning. Jewelry can represent love, care, promise to yourself and or to another person. If I’m having a brief challenging moment remembering what it represents helps bring about positive thoughts.
2. Enhancing and completing any outfit or look. Jewelry is like icing on the cake. The cake is good with and without the icing. The icing is a little extra.
3. Jewelry can make a person feel good and more confident. If you feel good about the way you look you’ll feel good about yourself. Ever put on a pair of earrings and look at yourself in the mirror and think wow I look good? That’s positivity.
Jewelry isn’t just a fashion statement it’s a way to be and feel. I wear my masterpieces daily. What’s yours?
Brittany Rojas, Ireland, 20 y.o
Jewellery for me is that most of the jewellery I wear is only meaningful.
Or if somethings missing in my outfit the solution is always that jewellery needs to be added. It adds more to my confidence of course! Which is the goal too 😊
Yoisha Allen, United States, 25 y.o
The importance of jewelry to me is that depending on the type of jewelry it is it can make any simple outfit stand out and that alone will give you a major confidence boost.
Viktoria Jendreczek, Canada, 24 y.o
Jewelry for me is a great way to accessorize and upgrade even simple outfits to make them look more elegant and elevated.
while only family heirlooms or vintage pieces have a deeper meaning to me, I enjoy buying timeless pieces of quality jewelry that iIcould later on pass down to my kids as well 🥰
Georgia Indianna McDougall, Australia, 16 y.o
Jewellery is a key element to adding your own personality and taste to an outfit. Also is key to make contrast throughout the outfit. To me jewellery is like art and comes big, small, loud, or quiet… it brings comfort to know no matter what outfit I’m wearing, I can feel expensive thanks to jewellery, another thing we all love about jewellery is what it can signify weather It’s been gifted by a loved one, passed down from generations or bought by yourself as self love.
Here at Sincere Sally we aim to bring meaning to our jewelry pieces and hope that they place a special importance in your life.
I would love to hear from more of you! Please feel free to comment below about what you feel the importance of jewelry is ♥️
As Tom Ford once quoted; "People will stare. make it worth their while."
I hope you enjoyed this read, all feedback is welcome - Sincere Sally values your opinion.
My name is Joy and I am the co-owner of Sincere Sally. I am very new to blogging but I am excited to be able to bring more value to our Sincere Sally community and hopefully brighten your day with this light read! I wanted to write a blog that reflected the true value and importance of friendship.
I started my research online and found this quote:
"A true friend is a friend when it is convenient and when it is not. They standby you consistently both when you are present and when you are not. They answer you with empathy, perspective and honesty. True friends show you who they really are."
I feel that this is very relatable. However, I soon released that this blog couldn't be written using online research, it needed to be written from the heart and from personal experience.
So, I went out on an investigation to see what my friends, the Sincere Sally team and our Sincere Sally ambassadors value in friendship and what their meaning of the word 'friendship' was.
These were my findings:
Louise Beerens - Mother of Bryce & Joy Monkivitch (Female, age 55)
Australia / New Zealand
Friendship Is a relationship that continues, even when you are apart. It’s when you aren’t afraid to show each other your weaknesses. It’s when you feel encouraged to be yourself. It’s when you always see the positives first. It’s when distance and lack of contact doesn’t change the way you feel. It’s always there from when you left off.
Georgia Groves - Friend & Ambassador (Female, age 25)
Friendship is that special bond between two people where you can express yourself with no judgement. It means sharing your interests and passions in the world and being your most authentic self. Friendship is like the family that you choose, no matter how long you have known each other. I value my friends because they listen to me and support my wildest dreams.
Kallyn Chynoweth - Ambassador (Female, age 19)
Friendship to me is a bond that consists of kindness, generosity, loyalty, and honesty. A friend that will be happy for you through your greatest accomplishments and will support you through your toughest times. Friendship is having each others backs no matter the circumstance but also holding each other to a standard that pushes us to be our best selves.
Kalyn Yuhas - Ambassador (Female, age 21)
The term friendship has multiple meanings for people. Many believe that friendship is simply a relationship between two people who enjoy talking to one another and enjoy the persons company. To me friendship is creating memories, laughing, and living life with a person who pushes, supports you and will always be there for you through the good and bad times. Friends just make life better! 😊
Sukhpreet Kaur - Ambassador (Female, age 27)
Friendship is trust between two people that goes so far along with memories of life, memories bind friendship knot together and go through thick and thin together…So build trust and live life fully.
Briana Spear - Ambassador (Female, age 19)
My meaning of friendship is having a home away from home. Being comfortable being you around someone without them judging you because they love you regardless of your flaws. Being able to be sad, mad, happy and any other emotion there is around them because you know that they will help you through any and everything. A friendship is almost like a cure. Anytime you feel you’re alone you’ll always have a friend to be there. I value everything in a friendship, good or bad because I will always learn a valuable lesson from both.🤍🦋
Lateasha Brost - Ambassador (Female, age 23)
Friendships are beautiful and should never dim your light. True friendship means I can be the best version of myself as well as be surrounded by positive and supportive energy. True friends listen, understand without judgement, believe in you at all times and allow total freedom to be yourself. ♥️
Halla - Ambassador (Female, age 30)
Friendship and what it means to me — a friend is a person that will always be there for you no matter what, through ups and downs. One who listens, doesn’t judge, and makes everything alright. A person that you can go days without talking to and when you do talk again you pick up right where you left off. In a friend you should be able to find your second self ♥️
Ericka - Sincere Sally Logisitics & Team Manager (Female, age 27)
Friendship for me always played an important role in my life. It is where you can share your feelings, thoughts, interests and attitudes. And it is very important to know my friends, inside and out. I believe and will always believe that having a good relationship with my friends will ensure that we help eachother through all ups and downs in life. Especially when it comes to decision making. True friends won't always be on your side when you are doing wrong. They will always want to lead you down the right path and let you understand that you are at fault too. They can be your best teacher aside from your parents and family. I value trust, time and memories. The same as I value friendship. As I grow older, I tend to know more what friendship is. And I know, the friends I have now will always be there for me and I will always be there for them no matter what.
Sim Sullivan - Sister-in-law & Ambassador (Female, age 32)
Friendship is when you have your biggest supporter to hype you up in times you need, but also call you out on your BS when it’s needed.
You can go weeks without talking and when you finally do (because ya know, life gets busy) it’s like you only just spoke yesterday and their are no hard feelings. Honesty and being real and raw, is a true value of friendship
Vissaintha Gassant - Ambassador (Female, age 23)
The meaning of friendship to me is EMPATHY. Friendship is a relation between two or more friends, it is the state of being friend with someone.
Friendship means having someone to rely on. It means having a person who will tell you the brutal truth, wether it’s a compliment or an insult. Friendship means that you have someone who can rely on you for every secret and indecision. When friendship are mutually satisfying, both friends talk and both friends listen.
One of the most beautiful qualities that I value in friendship is to understand and to be understood. Friendship is an opportunity to love, to learn about yourself, to mature as a human being and to open up to the full experience of life!
Mirbakian - Ambassador (Female, age 26)
Friendship is being there for one another on your sad & happy days. It’s having that one person you go to for everything knowing they will never judge you or hurt your feelings, but will be honest with you. It’s the person you choose out of millions of people to do life with. What I value most in a friendship is the loyalty, trust & memories. My best friend is my person.
Betsy Rendon - Ambassador (Female, age 20)
A friendship is a priceless gift. A true friendship is a friend who is willing to stick by your side through thick and thin. The value of friendship is far greater than any treasure and if lost, one may never recover such richness . A friend is someone who you share a special bond with and make unforgettable memories with. A friend in need is a friend indeed 😊
Leah - Sincere Sally Customer Service Agent (Female, age 23)
Friendship is a relationship you build with people making your souls tangled like a thread. It's like a light that will help you see things way broader than you see them before. And for me, it's a special relationship that you build with people whom you can celebrate those sorrows with hope and joy, whom you can feel comfort even in silence and those who can help you heal your tired soul and vice versa. Friendship will really have a big impact and influence in your life that even if the future is still unknown or the past becomes a memory you will still feel at ease because you still have something to be grateful for - it's the friendship you build with those geniune souls. ❤️
Alexandra Moreno - Ambassador (Female, age 18)
Someone who is genuinely your friend stands up for you. Others will go to great lengths to emotionally or physically damage you. They keep you safe. They don't care who is attempting to hurt you; they will protect you at all times and in all places. They will execute it without hesitation or consideration for remuneration. If they can assist you. A good friend isn't one who continuously reminds you how unlovable you are to others. First and foremost, their words and actions make it clear where they stand on you. Second, they don't just sit there and do nothing when others do. A true friend is a friend when convenient and when it is not. They stand by you consistently when you are present and not.
Kailem Baker - Boyfriend (Male, age 25)
A friend to me is someone who is always there for me no matter the situation. Someone that you have trust in to be able to be vulnerable and feel safe in being who you are! Knowing that if it came to it they would take a bullet for me because they know I would do it for them.
Kelly Turner - Ambassador (Female, age 24)
My meaning of friendship is someone you can always count on. They don’t judge you and they meet you right where you are. They unconditionally stand by you and love you through everything. I value honesty in my friendships because a lot of people can respect you but not a lot of people can tell you the truth. A true friend is someone willing to tell you the hard things that you might not want to hear.
My best friend Emily Roberson died in a car accident 5 years ago and I feel like I am still learning about the deep meanings of friendship through her death just with the way my friends helped me grief and met me where I was during that process!
Rocio Zavaroni - Friend & Ambassador (Female, age 27)
Friendship to me is very special.
I give my love but receive it to.
Friendship is family for me at this age in life and living in a different country. They help shape me to become better. They love you when you don’t even love yourself. They make you see your potential and worthyness. I have been on both sides. It’s a wonderful journey to walk through life with friends/family. Friends can also come and go because life happens but you learn, love and live. Friends help you shape the person you become. 🤍
Cameron Murphy - Ambassador (Female, age 21)
Friendship means compatibility and loyalty that you share with another person. friendship means having someone to go to when you need them the most and being there for them when they need you the most. A strong friendship is beautiful. what I value in a friendship is the loyalty to one another and the comfortable aurora around being able to help each other grow!!
Lenisha Kay - Ambassador (Female, age 21)
To me Friendship means that you have that one person you can turn to for any and anything at all. What I value most in friendship is the fact that I can confide in someone and have a sense of safety and love.
Here at Sincere Sally we aim to build our community around all of these points above! I am hoping that through these blogs, I can build a safe and loving community for all Sincere Sally supporters. I have made so many friends on my journey with Sincere Sally and I hope that you do to.

It's always fun to learn about the zodiac signs and their characteristics, especially when it comes to pointing out characteristics about yourself and those with who you're close with. Have a read below and you may realise that the stars seem to know more about you, then you know yourself.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Despite the "aqua" in its name, Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Innovative, progressive, and shamelessly revolutionary, Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign. At the end of the day, Aquarius is dedicated to making the world a better place. Style your star sign with your daily look!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
If you looked up the word "psychic" in the dictionary, there would definitely be a picture of Pisces next to it. Pisces is the most intuitive, sensitive, and empathetic sign of the entire zodiac — and that’s because it’s the last of the last. As the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson — the joys and the pain, the hopes and the fears — learned by all of the other signs. It's symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces' attention between fantasy and reality. Style your star sign with your daily look!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The first sign of the zodiac, Aries loves to be number one. Naturally, this dynamic fire sign is no stranger to competition. Bold and ambitious, Aries dives headfirst into even the most challenging situations—and they'll make sure they always come out on top! Wear your star sign loud and proud!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
What sign is more likely to take a six-hour bath, followed by a luxurious Swedish massage and decadent dessert spread? Why Taurus, of course! Taurus is an earth sign represented by the bull. Like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors. Style your star sign with your luxe necklace layers.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Have you ever been so busy that you wished you could clone yourself just to get everything done? That's the Gemini experience in a nutshell. Spontaneous, playful, and adorably erratic, Gemini is driven by its insatiable curiosity. Appropriately symbolized by the celestial twins, this air sign was interested in so many pursuits that it had to double itself. Style your star sign with your daily look!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Represented by the crab, Cancer seamlessly weaves between the sea and shore, representing Cancer’s ability to exist in both emotional and material realms. Cancers are highly intuitive and their psychic abilities manifest in tangible spaces. But—just like the hard-shelled crustaceans—this water sign is willing to do whatever it takes to protect itself emotionally. Wear your star sign with resilience!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Roll out the red carpet because Leo has arrived. Passionate, loyal, and infamously dramatic, Leo is represented by the lion and these spirited fire signs are the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They're delighted to embrace their royal status: Vivacious, theatrical, and fiery, Leo’s love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate… well, themselves. Wear your star sign loud and proud!
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You know the expression, "if you want something done, give it to a busy person?" Well, that definitely is the Virgo anthem. Virgos are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life. Virgo is an earth sign historically represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, an association that speaks to Virgo's deep-rooted presence in the material world. This earth sign is a perfectionist at heart and isn’t afraid to improve skills through diligent and consistent practice. Wear your star sign with confidence!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Balance, harmony, and justice define Libra energy. As a cardinal air sign, Libra is represented by the scales (interestingly, the only inanimate object of the zodiac), an association that reflects Libra's fixation on establishing equilibrium. Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create equilibrium in all areas of life — especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Style your star sign to find balance and harmony in life.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Elusive and mysterious, Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Scorpio is a water sign that uses emotional energy as fuel, cultivating powerful wisdom through both the physical and unseen realms. In fact, Scorpio derives its extraordinary courage from its psychic abilities, which is what makes this sign one of the most complicated, dynamic signs of the zodiac. Wear your star sign with confidence and power!
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Oh, the places Sagittarius goes! But… actually. This fire sign knows no bounds. Represented by the archer, Sagittarians are always on a quest for knowledge. The last fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius launches its many pursuits like blazing arrows, chasing after geographical, intellectual, and spiritual adventures. Style your star sign with your daily look!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
What is the most valuable resource? For Capricorn, the answer is clear: Time. Capricorn is climbing the mountain straight to the top and knows that patience, perseverance, and dedication is the only way to scale. The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn, is represented by the sea-goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and the tail of a fish. Accordingly, Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms. We have the perfect necklace for you - save time trying to mix and match your jewelry, just wear your star sign necklace! It goes with everything.
Hot tip: Are you struggling with gift ideas? Star sign pendant necklaces are the perfect gift for any occasion, friend, partner or family member! You can view Sincere Sally’s range here.
