When it comes to accessorizing, less is more. A stunning, classic, elegant piece shows infinite grace and is essential for tying an outfit together. There are a few classic pieces of luxury jewelry that every woman should have in her jewelry chest, without which accessorizing becomes a whole lot more difficult.
The cocktail ring
If you want to make a statement, say it with a cocktail ring such as a work of art from Astley Clarke. They are perfect opportunity to showcase color and style, without making a look seem contrived or over-conceived. With so many styles and shapes available, while your luxury jewelry collection must always contain one cocktail ring, it’s not surprising that it can become quite the collection.
The diamond studs
Small gold hoops are a great addition to many outfits, but diamond studs bring elegance to a look like nothing else. They can vary in size, cut, and style, but they’ll always make eyes seem brighter, and a look seem classier. With such variation in diamond pricing, it’s easy to choose a pair to suit your budget, and they’re an absolute must. If you’re ever in doubt of your accessories for an outfit, the diamond studs are the way to go.
A beautiful meeting of style and purpose, the watch is a perfect accessory, and one that no woman should be without. With such a variety of styles available, it’s a great excuse to have a few. A plain, open-faced Rolex with a simple strap is important for everyday use, but for eveningwear, it’s an opportunity to get creative. Look out for Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, or Chopard for some of the most stunningly elegant watches that everyone should have in their collection.
The gold chain
The beauty of the gold chain is its versatility, but on its own, it brings color and charm to any outfit. A fine, mid-length chain will brighten up any style, but when paired with other chains it can add a really cute boho-chic edge to a style, without looking overdone.
The pearl teardrop earrings
The diamond studs might be the absolute go-to for beautiful earrings, but every woman needs a pair of pearl teardrops too. Paired with a sleek up-do, the teardrop earrings elongate the neck and add color and movement to an otherwise stationary style, giving the look elegance and dynamic. If your luxury jewelry collection is currently pearl-less, it’s time to rectify that. Pearls are a timeless classic, and as much a girl’s best friend as any diamond.
The tennis bracelet
The stunningly simple tennis bracelet is a thing to behind, when it’s done right. They should be elegant, symmetrical, and not detract from the wearer’s clothes, but purely compliment them. The charming simplicity makes it uniquely wearable with almost any outfit, making it the perfect jewelry box staple. Otherwise, a simple charm bracelet with tiny silver charms is a cute and sentimental alternative, and a great gift for younger ladies.
Accessorizing your outfit is as much about having the right statement pieces as it is about having the best jewelry essentials. They really can make or break and outfit.
