As much as I love browsing, getting and gifting jewelry, I am blithely aware of the fact that I consistently wear only probably 20-30% of my jewelry pieces. These are my staple pieces: they are easy to wear, never go out of style and add just the right amount of polish to even the simplest outfits.
What’s your go to piece?
Pearl strand: Instead of the classic pearl strand, go for an unexpected touch. This gorgeous pearl mesh necklace from 10 thousand things is fresh and full of movements.
Skinny bangle: They are light to wear and great for days when you want a minimalist touch. This beautiful bangle from Himatsingka provides gorgeous rivet details and an edgy color contrast.
Hoops: Instead of round hoops, I’ve become a fan of these square ones from my own line Mica whose angles remind me of art deco aesthetics.
Cocktail ring: Also perfect for everyday wear, a statement ring that’s bold and colorful showcases your personality and style. This gold plated glass ring from YSL does just that.
Statement cuff: An exaggerated statement cuff could come in handy way more often than you think. This molten cuff from Alexis Bittar is so unique in its texture and form, it’s almost like a work of art.
Long necklace: There is a laid back vibe to a long layered necklace such as this one from A Peace Treaty. Especially as the weather gets colder and we pile on the layers, a statement piece like this one can easily sit over chunky knits.
Symbol necklace: If you are superstitious like me, a little symbol necklace that carries a special meaning for you can be just want you need on those special days. I wear this ampersand necklace from Mica as a reminder to myself of all the people in my life who are there to support me.
Studs: Instead of diamond studs, opt for druzy ones like these from Lauren Wolf. Druzy stones are gorgeous for their surface texture and sparkly shine.
Statement Necklace: Statement necklaces can be a joy to admire and a pain to style. I gravitate toward pieces that have a geometric emphasis in form. This Metropolis necklace from Anthropologie has a deco like style and infuses a very unusual but refreshing set of materials.
