I am sure that you’ve heard the old saying that you should always have staple pieces in your closet such as: a black suit, a hot pair of pumps and a sexy black dress. That rule still applies but so many people forget about jewelry staples: a nice pair of diamond or diamond looking studs, a great pair of gold and silver hoops, a cocktail ring and those necklaces and bangles that go with at least half of your wardrobe.
The trick is finding these must have items that fit your personal style. No two women are exactly alike. Some women may opt for the classic silver hoop with a high polish finish; but if you want to show off your edgier side, you may like a more modern take on this look. Our sterling silver hoops with gunmetal beads by Elle would be perfect for you.
A great cocktail ring is a must have. They can take your ensemble from day to night in seconds and are often great conversation pieces. Right now, oversized cocktail rings are being worn by the fashion savvy and they are great way to show off elegant hands.
Now, if you love to show off your neckline, remember; a great everyday necklace does not have to be plain gold or silver. In fact, a growing trend is infusing colorful gemstones into your everyday look. We have pendant necklaces in gold or silver chains that showcase simple yet radiant gemstones.
They are understated enough to be worn everyday but elegant enough to add sophistication to your outfit. A woman is always in need of a good cuff. Cuffs are typically bold pieces but can still be extremely feminine. Take a look at our 18k gold over Sterling Silver Ribbed Cuff Bangle Bracelet or our Sterling Silver with Turquoise Wide Cuff. Both have completely different looks but add flair to your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to experiment with diverse looks to find what suits you best.
Learning how to accessorize does not have to be hard. Remember, simple pieces can go a long way if you choose the right ones.
