Jewelry was always used to bring a bit more interest to our appearance and round up the look. Sometimes, jewelry can also be used to showcase wealth and status. But no matter the reason you’re choosing to wear jewelry, do know that there are some basic guidelines that will help you make the right choice.

While different styles and trends come and go, some basic jewelry etiquette is here to help you take your whole attire to the next level. Remember, though, if you get slightly carried away and pile up more pieces than you actually need, you can easily cheapen your appearance and accomplish the exact opposite of what you were trying to achieve. So, pay attention.

Everyday jewelry

There are some jewelry pieces that can work great no matter the occasion. What’s best about this type of jewelry is that you can even rock and enjoy it every single day. A wedding band is a great example of this type of jewelry. Alternatively, you don’t have to be married to enjoy some awesome rings. For instance, cute and dainty stackable rings can also add a new dimension to your everyday appearance. So, take a look at these beauties if you’re looking for similar pieces that will make you feel special every single day.

Office jewelry

When it comes to office jewelry, you need to pay a bit more attention to what you choose to wear. First off, make sure that the pieces you’ve chosen are not too distracting. This is particularly true if you’re a teacher or in any other line of profession where distracting jewelry could make doing your job more difficult. Next, make sure that your jewelry doesn’t make any unnecessary noise. Clunking bracelets and rattling earrings can not only get distracting but also annoying, especially if you’re not the only person in the office.

Jewelry for special occasion

For special occasions, people usually want to present themselves in the best possible light. That’s why, more often than not, they choose beautiful clothes that make them look elegant and classy. So, when choosing jewelry to wear to the said formal event, make sure you choose wisely. Now’s the perfect time to take out that elegant jewelry set and adorn your attire even further. Jewelry pieces with different jewels, diamonds and other precious stones are perfect for such an occasion. But again, make sure you don’t overdo it, as it will only diminish your efforts. As an unwritten rule of thumb, go for no more than three jewelry pieces and try to stick to only a single statement or oversized piece.

Party jewelry

On the other hand, party jewelry leaves a bit more room for layering, quirkiness and personalization. No matter the type of party you are attending, almost anything goes. Here, there really are no rules but one – make sure you’re happy with the way you look.

Old vs. new trends

In the past, mixing different metals and finishes was a huge no-no. However, nowadays, mixing metals seems to be among the hottest of trends. Also, women were always advised to wear delicate and feminine wristwatches and avoid chunky, masculine ones. The trend we also get to see more and more of – and we love it! – is men wearing more jewelry. 

So, the next time you find yourself thinking about the best choice of jewelry for any occasion, make sure you remember these rules. Even though jewelry is something quite personal and is commonly used to express our style, overdoing it may cause the exact opposite results than what you’re trying to achieve. That being said, however, don’t overthink the process. Choose pieces that you love and that make you feel good and wear them with confidence. When you like what you are wearing and you feel comfortable in – and with – it, it will certainly show. And you know what they say, confidence is the best accessory!
