11 Jewelry Essentials You Need In Your Wardrobe by Jessica Wang

Have you ever had those days where you struggle to find that ensemble that you feel comfortable wearing or worse yet, you have that feeling of dread that you have nothing to wear in your wardrobe? You are not alone!

The Capsule Jewelry Collection

The concept of having a small selection of versatile pieces in your wardrobe that complement each other and create a polished look is not new. This approach, known as a capsule wardrobe, can also be applied to your jewelry collection. Much like that pair of denim jeans or classic white T, a quality pair of Hoops or a Pendant Necklace will be that versatile piece that elevates that outfit from good to great! Whether it’s for that mid-week event or Saturday brunch, you won't go wrong with these jewelry essentials.

Stud Earrings

From the moment you get your ears pierced, stud earrings are usually the first earrings you wear. Their versatility makes them the perfect choice for any outfit and occasion, which is why it’s on our list of jewelry essentials. Whether you're hitting the gym, lounging by the pool, or dressing up for a special event, stud earrings add a touch of sparkle and elegance to your look. Whatever your taste there is a wide selection of different styles of stud earrings on offer, from simple and understated to bold and glamorous. One of the true must-haves and a timeless piece of everyday jewelry.

Herringbone Necklace

There is something about a quality herringbone chain that just cannot be matched. Deceptive in its simplistic appearance, the herringbone chain is a beautiful interlocking chain that lays flat on the wearer and adds an edge to the style no matter the complexity.

Hoop Earrings

Hoops are to jewelry, what blue jeans are to any wardrobe, they are without question the quintessential jewelry piece that no jewelry collection should be without. From everyday street attire to that special cocktail dress, hoops will tie together any look.

Huggie Earrings

A close sibling to the standard hoop, huggies are smaller in size and earn their name from their fit as they essentially hug the earlobe. While smaller in diameter, the huggie will usually be a little chunkier than normal hoops which act more as a compliment to any style rather than being the focal point of the ensemble.

Pendant Necklace

A pendant is an easy way to wear something meaningful (your initials, your zodiac sign) close to your heart. Best of all, there’s no need to wear just one. As pendants, amulets retain unprecedented popularity in the modern-day as good luck charms, talismans, and as protection from the evil eye or any number of other perceived disasters or supernatural forces. Pendants are frequently made to be detachable, so you can mix and match them with any number of necklaces.

Pearl Strand

Some jewelry pieces are timeless and will never go out of style. A pearl necklace is a perfect example of this. Passed down from generation to generation, they hold a special place in our hearts. We adore the elegance of a double-stranded pearl necklace with various-sized pearls, but a classic single strand is equally stunning. Whether you prefer a modern or traditional style, a pearl necklace is a must-have in your collection to add sophistication.

Stacking Ring

The beauty behind a few pairs of stackers is that they can be mixed and matched. Herein lies the conundrum many face as stacking rings are not only beautiful and fun but can be a little daunting when seeing the many ways they can be worn. Which finger should adorn which style and how many can go on a certain finger? We’re here to tell you to not fret as no matter the way you wear them, you can rest assured, that they will look amazing with any ensemble.

Signet Ring

Dubbed the original signature, signet rings used to be a means to sign a seal with their ornate engraving acting as a stamp in wax. Today, they are decorated with your initials, glistening with precious gemstones, or keep it simple by remaining bare to let that precious metal shine.

Colorful Stones

Experimenting with the toned hues of gold and silver is one thing, but sometimes you need that splash of color to make a look pop and make a statement. A colored stone is one of the best ways to add a greater amount of dimension to your look, an everyday look, or an evening attire. Introducing a colored stone can also draw out the unique colors of your features such as your eyes.

Tennis Bracelet

Ever since the tennis Grand Slam Princess (a.k.a. Chris Evert) coined the term when she lost her beloved bracelet during the 1987 US open, the term tennis bracelet rocketed into popularity. Since then, the flashy piece has become a staple of any look. This simple piece will elevate any look and give it that something extra you are after.

Slider Bracelet

A beautiful and simple piece that will top off any outfit. Slider bracelets get their name from the sliding clasp that can be moved to adjust the piece's diameter, allowing you to find the perfect fit with superb comfort no matter the climate or occasion.
