It’s a common mistake to think that a woman needs a lot of jewelry when in reality, some good solid, investment pieces is all you need. Some fall prey to the trend cycle and buy what they think is in style that season, only to no longer be interested in the same piece of jewelry the next season.
You may have owned a number of heavy, bejeweled statement and bib necklaces when they were in style a few years ago. But when those necklaces phased out, what happened with them? Are they still just collecting dust in the back of your closet?
The most important thing is to have easy pieces that you can layer and which work well when you’re dressed up or down. Pieces that can transition from day to night. Having vital pieces that you can build on and create outfits around as the years go by means that you will always have options you can pull out of your jewelry box at any time.
Plan on investing in quality pieces that will last you the test of time (meaning they won’t tarnish or fade) and to be honest, every woman really only needs a few pieces of jewelry. Here are some pieces that we think are worth investing in.
Some people wear hoop earrings every single day, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Whether they are gold or silver, big or small, diamond hoop earrings or plain, hoops have that magical power of being casual for daytime wear but also fancy enough to wear in the evening. Some people own multiple pairs in different styles, sizes and metals. And while some hoop earring lovers will opt for more expensive ones, others prefer cheaper, replaceable earrings if they’re constantly losing or misplacing their earrings, whether it be at home or while they’re out.
If you have a tight budget, a pair of diamond stud earrings is something worth investing in because they can be worn with practically everything and they never go out of style. No matter what age, you’ll always get use out of them. Celebrities wear them on the red carpet paired with ball gowns, moms wear them to do school drop offs and teens wear them too. A good pair of stud earrings is definitely something every woman should own. We also like a nice pair of pearl stud earrings.
Necklaces you can layer
Layered necklaces go with everything from a beach cover up to a button-down top, and even an evening gown or cocktail dress. Aim to have a rotation of about 5-10 necklaces to switch between throughout the week. We also love a good personalized name necklace or a necklace with your initial.
Not everyone is a fan of rings, but a pretty stack of rings is sometimes the easiest thing to wear when you want to dress up an outfit. Some prefer plain metal stackable rings but we also love ones with beautiful gemstones. Wear multiple rings on one finger or spread them out among a few fingers. There’s no wrong way to wear stackable rings and, again, they go with every outfit.
