Classic jewelry suitable for any occasion
Ready to build a solid jewelry collection that perfectly complements your wardrobe, social function and emotions? The core of your accessories should be simple, versatile pieces that can work in formal or informal settings. Plain metals without too much detail serve as timeless, stylish accents, no matter what you’re wearing.
Opt for universal round, oval and square shapes. The best staples are made of high-quality materials – like a pair of diamond studs or a 14k gold tennis bracelet – and will withstand the test of time.
Once you have your basics down, you can branch out to add several bold statement pieces that will steal the show and become the focus of compliments from onlookers.
1. Bold cocktail ring
Eye-catching rings dazzle when you’re holding a martini glass or gesturing during social conversation. A hot trend now is to choose a ring that contains your birthstone, especially if you have a more unusual one like a sapphire or opal. Experiment with odd shapes like cushion, fantasy, heart, or diamond cuts. Don’t worry so much about matching your outfit. You want the cocktail ring to add depth to your evening look.
2. Everyday diamond studs
Modest-sized studs are often the final finishing touch on any outfit. You can choose a set of minimalist diamonds or go with boldly colored stones and unique shaped gems. Everyday diamond earring studs elevate the status of jeans and a T-shirt or add a hint of sparkle to a simple black dress.
3. Cuff bangle bracelet
Cuffs can be subtle for everyday wear or bold to make a statement – whatever you choose. Pair thin, layered silver or gold bangles with a white T-shirt and jeans for a simple, but fashion-forward look. Or opt for a chunky and colorful cuff to jazz up casual daywear or take center-stage alongside a monochromatic gown.
4. Dangling statement earrings
Nothing says “red carpet ready” quite like a pair of shoulder-dusters. Long earrings stand out on their own and work best as the only piece of jewelry worn on a given night. The focus is kept up top when you’re wearing these, so consider wearing your dangling earrings when you want to accentuate a new haircut or call attention to bare shoulders revealed by a strapless dress.
5. Pearl necklace
Elegant pearls have come a long way from your grandmother’s day. While still very much classic and sophisticated, you’ll also find different colored pearls and layered arrangements that stun. Pair your pearl necklace with a set of pearl earrings or a pearl-accented bracelet for an effortless, pulled-together look.
6. Pendant necklace
Delicate pendants often carry special significance for the wearer. Choose something symbolic of a loved one or special occasion to add an everyday conversation piece to your wardrobe. Pendants look chic with gray tees and sparkle with cocktail dresses. They hold their own, but also lend well to layering.
Watches are much more than timepieces. These essential fashion staples add elegance for every occasion. Two-tone watches blend seamlessly with all other types of jewelry in your collection, whether you’re going silver or gold. Large boyfriend-style watches add a hint of power to your otherwise feminine ensemble. Stack up bangles, friendship bracelets, cuffs and tennis diamonds with your watch if you want to impress.
