There comes a time in a woman’s life, a certain point of maturity without a specific age point, when she is more or less financially stable and on a steady track in life. Once a woman reaches that time, she’ll have a new set of responsibilities and events to attend to which she needs to look polished for. Investing in some classic jewelry can make or break a certain look and therefore a woman’s confidence as well. And with her financial stability, she can splurge on some great designer jewelry.
Here are some essential jewelry pieces every adult woman should have in her vanity.
- Simple diamond stud earrings
These simple but elegant accessories can work with and enhance almost any look. Whether you’re going to work or attending a party, diamond studs can make you look more put together and add an understated glamour to your outfits.
- A necklace that goes with anything
This could be a simple gold or silver necklace with a small pendant or a long, plain, unadorned necklace. Its simplicity makes it a versatile piece which can give the wearer an air of elegance.
- Cuff bracelets
Another easy way to accessorize is to stack some cuff bracelets or wear them individually for a simple, carefree look. Just be sure to choose cuff bracelets that are made from metallic materials and come in clean, not-too busy designs for more versatility. You can find such pieces in the collections of mainstream luxury designers.
- Hoop earrings
Hoop earrings have fallen in and out of trend in the past decades but will always be in style. And its recent comeback is proof of its status as a must-have accessory. Just remember to invest in a pair that matches your face shape. The ideal size is around one to two inches. A pair of gold hoops can dress up a simple jeans and shirt look or glam up your outfit for a night out.
- Stacking rings
Stacking multiple rings is another accessory that has been making a comeback. Although, they’ve been used for years in bridal sets, stacking rings have made a crossover into everyday fashionable wear quite a few times in the last decades.
Invest in a mix of rings of varying sizes and materials. You can also buy rings for every milestone in your life (kids, marriage, travel) to add sentimental meaning to your ring stack.
- Layering necklaces
You can go simple, such as with the goes-with-anything necklace previously mentioned, or go a bit more by investing in a layering necklace which you can pair with your simpler necklaces. Layering can add visual interest to your looks or dress up an otherwise simple ensemble.
Similar to the stacking rings, be sure to go for variety and choose necklaces made of different materials, lengths and thickness. Stylists recommend starting with a short necklace and then adding other necklaces of varying lengths and metals to that base.
- A string of pearls
Of course, who can forget pearls? Pearls are iconic as they have transcended trends and can fit any woman regardless of age group. A simple string of pearls can dress up a casual look. It is often paired with a little black dress for a classic and elegant look.
- A cocktail ring
Cocktail rings aren’t just for cocktail parties. With the right-sized ring, you can easily make an instant statement whatever you’re wearing.
It’s not a requirement to have all the pieces in the list. Three or more pieces is sufficient to make sure that you have a piece of jewelry to match a majority of your outfits.
