They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But we believe any quality piece of fine jewelry can make a great pal.
It may be trendy to pile on inexpensive costume jewelry to accent your wardrobe, and by all means, continue doing so! However, adding fine jewelry to your accessories instills a new level of beauty to your outfits of the day (#OOTD).
Types of Fine Fashion Jewelry
When it comes to fine fashion jewelry, you definitely have your pick of pieces. Whether you prefer necklaces, earrings, bracelets or rings (or a mix of them all), there are plenty of accessories to choose from. You can mix and match or stick with one statement piece depending on your preference.
Glittering studs have been a long-held standby for any fashionista. A subtle sparkle can add a dash of elegance to any outfit, and small ornaments on your earlobes are the perfect placement to be seen with any style. Whether you wear your hair up or down, they’re in the perfect position to be easily shown off without being too showy.
Hoop earrings are another wardrobe staple. Depending on your personal style, you can go with wide, golden retro hoops or more understated silver hoops. They go with any outfit or hair style, but look particularly nice with your hair worn down
Pendants are an opportunity to add a little more personality into your accessories. You can pick a simple diamond pendant to accent a delicate necklace or go for a unique shape or design to ornament a larger chain.
Bangles. Tennis bracelets. Charms. Bracelets are a fun accessory that can be accented however you want. Pick a simple style to compliment another piece of jewelry or layer together a mix for a more “free spirit” effect.
Both beautiful and functional, watches are a serious piece of jewelry to complement any outfit. You can always start with a signature piece and build a collection around that. Opt for different color faces and a variety of bands so you have a piece to go with any outfit.
Rings as gifts usually have a significant amount of symbolism. Usually they’re a sign of eternal love, whether from a significant other, family member or even from yourself. Recently, women started buying themselves a diamond ring as a gift for a promotion or as a sign of self love. Whatever the ring means to you, a beautiful piece adorning your finger will remind you of all the reasons that you earned it.
How to Integrate Pieces into Daily Outfits
Once you have your prized fine jewelry pieces, it’s time to add them to your outfit. Fortunately, most jewelry is extremely versatile and can be paired together or worn alone to add a little interest or sparkle to your wardrobe. Just like clothes, you can wear your jewelry certain ways to stay up to date on the latest fashion trends.
Wearing multiple rings stacked together is a popular choice for ladies who enjoy featuring some hand jewelry.
The trick is to select smaller, delicate pieces for easier stacking. Simple bands in different metals mixed with more intricate designs look beautiful together and pair nicely, no matter the occasion.
Understated pendants are a classic trend that we don’t see going anywhere soon. Whether it’s a simple diamond, charm or letter, a small ornament on a delicate chain is the perfect accessory to wear with any outfit.
You can wear it on its own or layer with longer necklaces for a more dramatic effect. The trick to pendants is finding the right length of necklace. A good rule of thumb is the smaller the pendant, the shorter the necklace.
Coco Chanel once said, “Before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” While we don’t disagree, you can avoid the restraint with delicate accents as opposed to multiple gaudy pieces.
A simple ring paired with a delicate necklace and diamond studs is the perfect balance of sparkle that is both classic and feminine while still trendy.
Another option is selecting only one piece of stand-alone jewelry to act as the focal point of your outfit. Usually done with a statement necklace, dangling earrings or statement ring, these pieces of jewelry operate under the adage, “the bigger, the better.” Selecting a piece of fine jewelry as your outfit’s centerpiece is a definite way to draw the perfect amount of attention.
