Jewelry is an essential for everyone woman’s wardrobe. A look doesn’t feel 100% complete without the right pair of earrings or that statement necklace. Sometimes, however, it’s difficult to know which items of jewelry are really essential to a wardrobe, and which are just pieces of clutter. To help you decide what you really need here are the 10 must have pieces of jewelry every woman should own!
1. Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings, when worn well, can bring a really pretty and edgy look to an outfit. The key is to find a colour that compliments your skin tone; gold works best white warm skin tones while silvers and white golds work best with cool skin tones. Pick a sized hoop that suits your neck length and face shape (this really does make all the difference). Hoop earrings can be worn with most outfits but work well with a bare neck and soft hair.
2. Statement Necklace
Statement necklaces seem to fall in and out of trend from season to season, but it is still a good idea to have one available in your jewelry collection for the in-style times. The statement necklace is a great way to cover your neckline when wearing a low-cut top, but also just a fantastic asset to spice up any basic outfit. When choosing your statement necklace, consider if you want something that will drape low to your navel area, or stay short and high on your chest. Colouring, again, is important when choosing this piece. Selecting something with a basic colour theme suited to your skin tone will be guaranteed to work well for you.
3. Silver Tennis Bracelet
Tennis bracelets are an elegant and subtle piece of jewelry, traditionally made using diamonds, but don’t worry – cheaper gems work just as well. This bracelet is a great piece to have as it really glams up any outfit and works well to finish off a formal wear look. Silver is the traditionally used colour for this piece of jewelry, although if you prefer gold pieces don’t be afraid to step outside the box.
4. Delicate Necklace
Delicate necklaces can range from nice jeweled pieces to thin gold chains with little details. This is a perfect piece to wear as a finishing touch for formal wear or from day to day as an outfit finisher. This can be worn with any hairstyle or other small jewelry pieces dependent upon the occasion.
5. Everyday Ring
The everyday ring is something that every woman should have. It is a smaller piece, silver or gold with classic finishing and smaller gems; something that is pretty enough to compliment any outfit, but not something so overpowering that it will get in the way of day to day life. When choosing an everyday ring, finding something that suits your skin tone is crucial, as you will be wearing it regularly- wear with clean nails or a pretty manicure for the perfect look.
6. Pearl, Or Small Earrings
Pearl, or a smaller earring, is another great every day or formal outfit finisher. I prefer to lean towards a pearl earring for this particular piece. However, selecting a solid gold or silver piece works just as well. This piece is something that it is worth spending more money on and making a solid investment- who wants some cheap earrings in their ear every day?
7. Statement Earrings
Statement earrings are a great piece of jewelry if you really want to bring something different to an outfit. These earrings can range from some dangling colourful pieces to some huge jeweled hoops. Choose something with a preferred metal, favourite gem and colour pallet. Wear for a night out with friends to bring something extra to your favourite L.B.D.
8. Statement Jeweled Ring
Statement rings, like the statement earrings, are a great way to bring a bit of ‘pizzazz’ to any outfit. A little bit subtler than some over the top earrings, a good statement ring can be worn as part of a casual outfit as well as when going out. Pick your favourite gem for this one, maybe even your birth stone to make it more personal to you.
Anklets are something that most women would not think of adding to their jewelry collection, but having one is perfect for hot days and holidays in order to glam up a pair of sandals and a mid-length skirt. Choose a solid colour metal with small detailing to make the most out of this piece, and ensure when buying one that it is fitted but not too tight- enough room for movement will work best.
10. Pretty Choker
Chokers have been a huge style piece over the last few seasons. When choosing your choker pick something that compliments your fashion style. All black chokers have been really popular! Wear from day to day with casual outfits or on a night out.
