Many have already been there and handled it with varying degrees of success. At any rate, it is best not to be overwhelmed each time you open your jewelry box. Following is a look at the best ways to approach this particular dilemma.
- Keep from planning further than the moment: That is, stay away from thoughts of what you will be doing with items, which fail to make the cut. Focus only on what you no longer like nearly as much as the rest.
- Truly sentimental pieces get special treatment: If something pulls at you in a way you are okay with (not all memories are good, but bittersweet is precious too), it warrants holding on to. However, you need to set a bar on this – not every item is irreplaceable.
- Group items, and pick the best from each bunch: This really works if you are normally given to buying a lot of similar jewelry. Having two different halo diamond engagement rings would likely not only force you to choose between them but also make it easy to do.
