Want to own jewelry for every occasion but not sure what to wear in different settings or how to build a versatile jewelry collection?
You’re not alone!
Jewelry is one of the most personal parts of your wardrobe. With fast fashion trends and clothing made to fit just about anyone, it’s really the little details that matter - the necklaces you choose and how you show off your new earrings - to help you stand out from the crowd.
Your jewelry choices matter. They reflect who you are, your tastes, and even your values, like when choosing ethical sources and eco-friendly jewelry.
Here are some tips to help you choose the handmade jewelry you need for a versatile and beautiful jewelry collection and some tips for matching the right jewelry and gems to every occasion.
Jewelry For Everyday Wear
Everyday jewelry can be almost anything you want it to be. Generally, it's a good idea to bring out jewelry that suits the season or your outfit, and it’s okay to choose just a pair of earrings or a necklace. You don’t always need both.
Everyday wear is also when you should feel free to mix and match your favorite pieces. It’s more about expressing yourself than going for the elegance of a formal look.
Choose a pair of earrings complimenting your face shape, add a favorite necklace, and maybe a bracelet to elevate your outfit.
I love using my Morse Code jewelry for these everyday looks because the hidden meanings in each piece help me set my intention and goals for the day.
Jewelry For The Office
Choosing the right jewelry for an office setting can often be more complicated than choosing jewelry for other looks.
After all, you want to look elegant without looking like you’re about to head off to a formal event or special evening.
Coordinated Sets of earrings and necklaces can often be the best option for an office look. The matching set helps you look put together and professional.
Alternatively, stud earrings and a statement necklace can be a great way to look professional and fashionable at work.
Jewelry For Formal Occasions
Formal occasions call for something a little special, something with some glamor, while still offering the refinement of a formal setting.
Whether you’re planning your outfit for a wedding or a charity ball, you want something that looks elegant and stands out. Formal occasions are perfect for eye-catching dangling earrings and a bold necklace.
Remember, though, elegance can make just as much of an impression as flashy jewelry at these events. A solitaire necklace in the right color or with the right chain can make the same impact as a larger piece.
Want jewelry that’s both bold and elegant? Why not dazzle in threader earrings like my Snowflake Obsidian ear threads? The color is suitable for any occasion, while the bold design can help you stand out in even the most formal settings.
Of course, there’s nothing more formal than classic black! If you aren’t sure what to wear to your next event, you can’t go wrong with the combination of black and silver, like my Onyx Interchangeable Bar Necklace.
Jewelry For Making A Splash!
Want jewelry that’s a little off the beaten path? Something that stands out in any setting but is versatile enough that you can wear it whenever you want.
There are many options, especially if you’re willing to combine bright colors with eye-catching designs in your jewelry.
Handmade jewelry always stands out from the crowd thanks to its unique designs. Why natural stone handmade jewelry? Natural stones have special meanings and a closer connection to our planet and its many ecosystems.
But one of my favorite sets for standing out and making a splash on any occasion? My Lariat Lapis Lazuli coordinated earring & necklace set. The bright color of Lapis makes this set stand out with any outfit, while the elegant design makes this jewelry perfect for every occasion. Simply adjust the length of the lariat necklace as needed.
At the end of the day, the best jewelry for you will depend on your preferred styles and your favorite stones.
No two people are exactly alike, and your jewelry collection should be as unique as you are!
