With all these new trends, sometimes it can be difficult to know what pieces are classics and actually worth investing in. Jewelry basics are, in fact, those pieces you’re sure you’ll love forever and that they’ll never go out of style. Here are some suggestions on which jewelry can serve you throughout your life, no matter your personal style
1. A Pendant Necklace
If you want to have something that’ll truly survive all the ups and downs of changing times, choose a pendant necklace that represents something dear to your heart. Our eyes are drawn to interesting styles and patterns, and jewelry is no exception – a pendant will be among the first things others will notice about you.
The pendant itself can be anything – a birthstone, an initial, a religious symbol, or a pendant of your own design. Don’t worry about it being outdated – that won’t happen, as long as it’s special to you.
2. A Pair of Stud Earrings
You don’t want to make a statement all the time, and those brilliant, glam chandelier earrings don’t exactly match a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. The solution is easy – add a pair of stud earrings to your jewelry collection.
These can be worn for any occasion, and you don’t even have to take them off if they don’t match your outfit – if you have long hair, just leave it down and the earrings can be your little secret.
A well-made pair of studs, from real metal and with a fine stone, can be a good addition to any outfit. A suit, a shirt, a sailor-knot sweater – studs will never let you down. When choosing these earrings, make sure to avoid trendy metals (that’s rose gold at the moment), and you won’t have to worry about them going out of style.
3. Not Just Any Ring
At some point, many of us will wear a ring on our left hand – an engagement ring, a wedding ring, or even a friendship ring. So, does that mean we have to keep our right hands bare? Of course not!
Choose a signature ring that you can wear on any occasion. If you go for something personal, not only it will be unique, but it will also never go out of style. Stacking rings, midi rings, colorful or oversized – the choice is yours.
4. A Quality Watch
You may think wrist watches are a thing of the past now that we have smartphones, but that’s far from the truth. A good watch can last for years and never go out of fashion – and you won’t have to go rummaging through your bag just to check the time!
Invest in a signature piece, the one that’ll give you an even more polished and elegant look. You can make it your own by choosing a style and fit that matches your usual style, or go for a contrasting look – if you usually wear more feminine jewelry, a men’s style inspired watch can work as a statement piece.
5. A Scattering of Bracelets
Another versatile piece of jewelry is a bracelet. Or a pair of them. Or a whole stack of them. Really, when can you ever go wrong with a bracelet?
You can invest in a high-quality piece that will give your outfit a touch of color and elevate a monochrome look, or wear that same bracelet with a more everyday outfit and instantly become more stylish.
