When it comes to jewellery and accessories, trends change as fast as you can say “mismatching earrings”. From one summer to another, designers come up with the most innovative and intriguing ideas, models and combinations, all meant to make women fall in love with the latest fashion. But as we move along with our lives, it gets clearer and clearer that no matter how striking some pieces of jewellery are one year or another, some of them remain timeless and ageless classics that will forever be fashionable.
No matter the colour of the year, the “recommended” size of a gem, the specific mix of materials, the shapes or the designs, there are at least six pieces of jewellery that go great with anything, at any age and for any personal style. Let’s see these six classic items you will never go wrong with from here on end.
1. The Statement Necklace
This chunky piece of jewellery in massive bulky designs or intricate and refined ones showed up quite some time ago, but it established itself as a must-have piece no matter the occasion or the season’s fashion trends. It can style up a simple, demure business outfit, it can compliment a casual outfit and it can work with any type of little black or little white dress. It is recommended that you have at least one statement necklace in a metallic finishing and a neutral hue so you are not bound by colour. A reasonably sized statement necklace will take you everywhere, from a romantic date to a fancy cocktail party.
2. The Shoulder-Length Earrings
No matter your age or your personal style, a pair of shoulder-length earrings will enhance your natural beauty, your face contour, and your neckline, regardless of the earrings’ shape. They can be classic chandeliers, long thin chains in precious metals or a combination of refined gems and metal mixes. Of course, sterling silver and white or yellow gold are timeless, especially if they feature embedded stones or crystals. Such earrings, while not associated with casual or sporty outfits, make brilliant companions to evening gowns, office attire, and elegant occasions.
3. Pearl Jewellery
Pearls will forever be precious, appraised, loved and cherished. They are a statement of refinement, elegance, high-class and absolute taste. From legendary Audrey Hepburn to modern red carpet divas, women all over the world understood that pearls are a thing of beauty that can be worn by all generations of women in a family and passed from one another as a strong financial and emotional investment. No matter you age, you can get a classic rope white pearl necklace to wear and style in any given circumstance.
4. Metal Cuff Bracelets
Just like the statement necklace, the metallic cuff bracelets are forever fashionable. Queen Cleopatra worn them in style and so can you! Pick your favourite metallic overtone and style any type of outfit you can think of! Golden or bronze metallic cuffs are excellent additions to black outfits or cream, ivory and pastel ones while silver or white gold cuffs make terrific accent and statement pieces to anything white, black or boldly coloured.
5. The Diamond Ring
Diamonds and pearls are those types of precious gems that stood the test of time and will stand it forever, not to mention that diamonds will always be a smart investment for certain types of people. A diamond ring speaks volumes about your taste in jewellery and your inclination towards everything high class. It may be your engagement ring or your wedding band. It may be placed in a classic or contemporary setting and mixed with a precious metal. It can be of any size. It doesn’t matter. The diamond ring can be the only piece of jewellery you can wear and still be the shining star of your overall outfit.
6. The Wristwatch
In today’s fashion and technological development, smart watches seem to have taken over the classic wrist watch, but this would be a superficial assessment as wrist watches will never go out of style. You may prefer a chunky masculine watch in a metallic finishing or a more refined and feminine one. You may follow the current trends and wear it stacked with bracelets, or you can wear it simply, with any type of outfit fancies you one season or another. A high-quality watch can go great even with an evening gown or a business power suit. It can look a tad hipster with your casual laidback summer outfits and it can turn your sporty attire into a casual chic one.
