There are some pieces of jewellery that have long been staples of many women's wardrobes. Some people might say that they would never go out of date! However, some of them can look a little old-fashioned if worn the wrong way. Take pearl jewellery, for instance. Pearls are beautiful and can be incredibly sophisticated. But if you choose the wrong piece or wear it with the wrong outfit, you could look much too old-fashioned. Wear them in the right way and they can look just as modern as they did a hundred years ago. If you invest in these classic jewellery pieces, you'll always have something to wear!
Simple but elegant earrings are a necessity in any woman's jewellery arsenal. Owning a pair of beautiful pearl earrings is a goal for many. But how can you wear them in a modern way? They have the potential to look a little stuffy and dowdy, rather than sophisticated. The first way you can make them more modern is by picking a more up-to-date design. You could have a pair of classic white pearl studs, but there's much more out there too. For example, you could choose a different colour of pearl. Or you might want to forego the stud design and pick something longer and with more detail. You can also make pearl earrings look more modern by pairing them with something fashionable. Avoid wearing them with a pearl necklace, which can be a bit too much.
Even though you probably shouldn't wear them together, owning a pearl necklace as well as earrings is a very good idea. Whenever you have a fancy event to attend or you just want to feel elegant, a pearl necklace will serve you well. If you want a string of real pearls, you will often be looking at spending a substantial amount of money. But the investmentment is worth it if the necklace will be with you for life. Part of the charm of a pearl necklace is its classic feel, but you might still want it to look more modern. You could pair it with a colourful dress, add another necklace or even wear it as a headband. I have a gorgeous pearl necklace that belonged to my Grandmother, I pair it with a simple blazer and jeans.. looks great!
It's hard to go wrong with a classic pair of diamond studs. If you look at a few options, you might even feel that they all look the same. However, there are lots of things to consider. Are they too big or too small? Are they the right shape, and what colour should the fittings be? You can have a square stud or a rounder one, and choose to go small and subtle or for a bigger statement. Whatever you select, it's hard to look old-fashioned with a pair of diamond studs. These are my studs of choice!
Charm bracelets aren't just for little girls. Just think of the likes of Tiffany and Pandora, after all. Whether you have a bracelet with one charm or you collect lots of them, a charm bracelet can be charming and not childish. Go for a sophisticated one that isn't too flashy so you can match it to anything. Again, I wear a vintage one that was my Grandma's.. I do love a charm bracelet.
These classic jewellery items won't go out of fashion if you know how to wear them well. Add them to your jewellery box and they won't let you down!
