I'm a huge fan of pared-down essentials, so here's my guide to styling your jewelry this season - for women who love to keep it simple. Gold is obviously huge and I love the recycled gold fill that I use - it's an affordable and environmentally-friendly choice. The other benefit of buying classic, uncomplicated pieces is that they'll never go out of style and you can wear them forever. So here's my capsule collection for current jewelry essentials: baby stud earrings, stacking rings, a statement ring, and layered necklaces. Here's what it looks like in photos...
1. baby stud earrings - even better are mix and match pairs with fun, geometric shapes
2. stacking rings - mix textures and add a few tiny gemstones, too
3. statement rings - a dainty oval or a wide, hammered band - mix them in with thin stacking rings
4. layering necklaces - mix chain lengths, pendant shapes, textures, and metal colors
layering bracelets and rings is fun, too - mix textures, colors, and sizes within the same aesthetic vibe for variety that's also visually cohesive
And have fun, as always - there are no rules, so you can never do anything wrong. Be you!
