In every woman’s life, there is always that confusing moment when you can’t decide which piece of jewelry you should wear. Whether it’s an outing with friends, a wedding, a work meeting or just a daily errand. There’re always dos and don’ts when it comes to jewelry.
The key word that goes with every occasion is “Simplicity”. It is always best to keep things simple, as jewelry is a complementary element.
It is there to complement your beauty and your outfit. So it is always best to bear that in mind while choosing what to wear.
Light is a major element you need to notice while choosing. What can be worn through the day is unnoticeable during night and vice versa.
It is best to wear medium value gem stones during the day, like jade, aquamarine, turquoise, and others, because they don’t reflect much light. While diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphire look amazing and sparkly at night. Pearls can go either way.
The occasion itself is a major element to keep in mind while choosing your jewelry. Some occasions need less or no jewelry at all. Funerals for example, it is better to wear no jewelry to a funeral, as it shows respect for the family’s grief.
But if you have to, just stick to those stud earrings, subtle pendant chain, and a simple band ring.
Weddings are considered as special cases just as funerals are. Choosing what jewelry to wear in a wedding depends on whether you’re the bride or just a guest.
If you’re the bride, then bring on your statement jewelry. Bear in mind the neckline of your dress. If it is a strapless dress then forget about the necklace, and wear long precious earrings. If you want to wear a necklace, then a simple collar that complements your neckline is the perfect additions, along with those precious studs if you’re having an up-do, or that medium sized earring if you’re letting your hair down. Being the guest is a much simpler story.
Wear whatever jewelry that suits your dress and is not too extravagant to steal the focus away from the bride. It is the perfect time to be subtle.
The jewelry you pick for a meeting or a work related event must have nothing much to say. Being a formal occasion, stealing focus is considered inappropriate.
You should avoid wearing clunky pieces, or any pieces that would get in your way.
Extravagant pieces should be avoided as well, as it is too much for the occasion.
Your daily casual outings are yours to shine.
However, you must pay attention to your attire. Extravagant, big pieces have its time and place. Interestingly, good jewelry can give ways for socialization. Pick the jewelry that you’d like to speak about. Those personal pieces that add to your qualities as a person. Pay attention to where you’re going and whom you’re meeting.
It is also valid to go with no jewelry at all if you like.
Two main rules you should pay attention to while choosing: if you’re wearing a set of bracelets on the arm, then there’s absolutely no need to wear many rings on the hand. Also, jewelry should contrast clothes. Meaning that if you’re wearing colorful patterned clothes, subtle jewelry is your go-to pieces, and if you’re
wearing solid colored clothes then make your jewelry colorful and playful.
