Fashions come and go, but there’s one addition to your wardrobe that will remain timeless forever: jewelry. By carefully selecting a few choice pieces, you can create a versatile capsule jewelry collection to last you through every season.
We bring you the five pieces of jewelry that every successful capsule jewelry collection should have.
1. Stud Earrings
No matter what your age, a pair of diamond stud earrings conveys a timeless elegance that suits every skin tone, face shape and personality type. Worn on its own or as part of a full set of jewelry, your diamond studs will add just the right touch of sparkle for any occasion.
2. A Gold Chain
Depending on your skin tone, find a shade of gold that works for you (tip: rose gold looks great on just about everybody). A simple gold chain can be worn either on its own for a minimalist effect, or layered with other strands of jewelry for a more luxe look.
3. A Classic Watch
This one is an investment piece; one that will carry you through the years and become a signature part of your ensemble. Choose one in a simple style that truly conveys your personality yet has a timeless feel to it.
4. Hoop Earrings
From casual weekend wear to formal office environments, a pair of hoop earrings goes with practically everything. Whether it’s a little black dress or a white T-shirt and jeans, small gold hoops will round off any look.
This one may seem designed for older women but trust us, there is nothing classier than a string of pearls worn with an evening outfit. There’s a reason that everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Coco Chanel were ardent fans of these freshwater jewels – they’re timeless and unashamedly feminine. If you’re new to the trend, start with a simple pair of pearl earrings and watch the compliments start pouring in. You can also do pieces with a contemporary twist.
