My Stone Stash

Like almost every girl, one of my hobbies is collecting these pretty sparkles. To be honest, I'm so much more of a stone collector rather than a jewellery lover. So here's my budding collection of pebbles and hopefully I get to tick off every item in my wishlist.

My collection principal has always been consistent; I buy stones only in sizes that I would wear as jewellery, and of a quality that appreciates in value and I would feel contented enough to never buy another of it.
