Like many other items we hold on to, jewelry is often evocative of pleasant memories—of people, places, and moments in our lives. Take a good long look at your collection, and separate the pieces you wear on a daily basis from the pieces you don’t. Set aside anything you consider a family heirloom, then take stock of what you’re not wearing, and ask yourself why. Are they out of date? Has your own style evolved? Did you just forget you owned them because they were buried at the bottom of a messy jewelry box? You can pass the items you know you’ll never wear again along to friends who will appreciate them, consign them, or donate them to charity.
