Jewellery is as much a part of your look as the clothes you are wearing. It says a lot about the person wearing it, whether you like classic elegance and refined style, or whether you opt for a more edgy aesthetic. Whatever your style preference may be, there are still certain items that you should own, the pieces that are timeless, will go with any outfit, and are built to last.
What should every jewellery wardrobe have? Step this way…
The Classic Watch
I struggle to understand anyone who doesn’t wear a watch. A beautiful timepiece not only looks incredible, but is also practical and useful. A watch is an investment piece, something definitely worth spending more for, and there are names you should definitely look out for, like Patek Philippe Cartier and Rolex. Remember the value of your designer watch will only grow, so keep all boxes and certification safe. You can find the best quality watches at Chronoexpert who specialise in luxury watches, selling both new and pre-owned designs.
When you choose your watch, look for a style that suits you, but will also give you the maximum usage, watches should not be just kept for best, they need to be worn as much as possible to earn their keep in your jewellery wardrobe.
The statement earring
One of this season’s biggest trends is set to be the statement earring. Introduce a splash of vibrancy into your outfit with a delicate pair of dangly and colourful earrings, which can add equal amounts of elegance and playfulness to any summer outfit. Look for earrings in a wide range of elegant styles and vibrant colours to add style to even the plainest of outfits.
The pendant necklace
Another big trend this season is set to be the pendant necklace. The secret when wearing this elegant and timeless piece of jewellery is to make it the centre of attention by pairing it with an otherwise quite minimal outfit, such as a plain dress or top and stud earrings in a matching metal.
When choosing your pendant necklace, be sure to choose a chain length that suits your face shape and brings out your best features. If you’re unsure which is the most flattering length for you then try different styles out for size until you find the one that suits.
A classic string of pearls are, quite frankly, iconic. From the days of Coco Chanel and Josephine Baker, pearls have been subversive – considered prim if worn with a twinset, but a long string of peals can be oh so sexy.
Pearls first found fame when Queen Alexandra wore a pearl choker to cover a scar from throat surgery, but these days they work with so many outfits. The great news is that you can pick up vintage pearls from charity shops and vintage fairs at very reasonable prices.
