The bloc of the northern countries includes Germany, Great Britain and several other countries. Separately we should allocate France that is famous with its style and fashion.
French charm consists in simplicity, comfort and the ability to combine things. Some conservatism in style allows you to always look elegant. They also actively ignore Luxury jewelry, as well as heels above 5 cm. They wear thin chains with pendants of classical shape, thin rings without stones and small earrings. In the overwhelming majority of cases, only one decoration is chosen. At the festivities, French women sometimes wear precious stones and bracelets. And they never wear all that is included in the jewelry set (earrings + necklace / chain + bracelet + ring).

However, asceticism is the main trend, and no matter how many chains there are in the neck of a Swede or a Dane, they will not catch sight, but only complement the image.
Germany has always been very practical. However, modern trends are not alien to the Germans, and fashionistas in the streets of Berlin, Frankfurt and other cities flaunt in unusual jackets, dresses and jeans, combining them with comfortable loffers, slip-ons and sneakers. But jewelry is usually the perfect minimum. The Germans, if they wear rings, chains or earrings, choose products with interesting elements and various geometric shapes.
