You’ve probably heard about capsule wardrobes, right? If you haven’t, the idea of a capsule collection is to have a few good-quality pieces, which can be mixed and matched to create endless outfits.
The same concept can be applied to your jewelry collection. And it’s a great idea! After all, investing in high-quality jewelry staples you’ll wear forever is much better than having a jewelry box full of once-trendy pieces you wore a couple of times before forgetting about them and moving on to the next trend, right? That’s a no-brainer!
To help you build your collection of must-have jewelry staples, here are eight classic pieces you need in your jewelry box.
A nice pendant on a dainty chain is a staple many of us can’t leave the house without. The best thing about this classic design is that you can add a personal touch to your accessories by choosing a pendant which is meaningful to you, such as a birthstone, a religious symbol, or even a lucky amulet.
Whether you prefer diamonds, pearls, colorful gemstones, or sleek metal beads, a nice pair of stud earrings is a must-have. They go with everything. From the gym to the opera, you’ll always look effortlessly chic with the help of these minimalist, elegant earrings.
Bangles truly withstand the test of time. If you’re skeptical about bangles being timeless, think about it this way: the same styles of bangles Cleopatra wore two thousand years ago are still in style today. That’s because they’re timeless! Safe to say you’ll be getting a lot of use out of your bangles for years to come.
These might not be everyday pieces, but statement rings are a great way to add some glitz and glam to an evening look, such as the classic little black dress. These dazzling accessories instantly uplift any outfit, making you look infinitely more glamorous and elegant.
Hoops are great for every occasion. Not only that, but they look great either worn by themselves or paired with other designs to create a statement stack. Whether you prefer bold, dramatic hoops or dainty, minimalist designs, there’s no denying that hoop earrings make quite the statement.
Stackables are perfect everyday rings, but they also work beautifully as special occasion accessories. It all depends on how you choose to style them. Wear a couple on each finger for an elegant daytime look, or opt for statement stacks to add the perfect finishing touches to your outfit on a night out.
From delicate everyday designs to lavish extra-long styles, drop earrings are super flattering jewelry pieces. Dainty drop earrings are the perfect option when you feel like wearing something between tiny studs and large hoops; while long drops are the perfect statement piece to wear on a night out. But, best of all, drop earrings shine beautifully as you walk, catching the light and bringing your eyes out.
An elegant wristwatch is the ultimate everyday accessory because it makes every outfit look super sophisticated and put together. The great thing about timeless timepieces is that you have a plethora of styles to choose from.
Whether you prefer a stainless-steel design, a classic leather-band-and-sleek-metal-face combo, or even a dazzling Swarovski-studded style, you can never go wrong with a refined watch.
