Luxury jewelry can elevate a seemingly bland outfit into something incredible. If your go-to outfit is a pair of jeans and a plain t-shirt, kick it up a notch with some luxurious gems and delicate metals. Jewelry has endless combinations and can be used to create a look that’s uniquely you.
If you’re new to wearing luxurious jewelry, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out how to style it. How do you know what styles go together so your look doesn’t look all over the place?
This guide will go over our top seven ways and tips to style luxury jewelry. Create a look that stands out while looking effortlessly stylish.
1. Stack Different Types of Rings
Stacking rings is in right now, and don’t be afraid to mix metals. Focus on asymmetry when selecting what rings you want to wear. Match thin rings with thicker ones so they balance out.
Mix rings with different metals and luxury gems for an innovative look. If you have a bunch of dainty rings, the more you can wear. Mixing thickness, gemstones, and textures is a wonderful way to create something unique.
2. Select a Statement Piece
While it’s fun to mix and match several pieces of jewelry, sometimes less is more when it comes to wearing a statement piece. You want the piece to stand out and not get lost among other pieces of jewelry.
If you’re going with a big, bold accessory, pair it with a simple outfit. Don’t wear vibrant prints or colors. You want your statement piece to stand out and not have to compete with everything else you’re wearing.
Your clothes should be the backdrop to your jewelry. Choose plain colors like black, white, or grey so your statement piece can shine.
3. Layer Your Necklaces
Layered necklaces are very in but for some people, they can end up like a tangled mess by the end of the day. While it can be hard to avoid your necklaces getting tangled, carefully storing them is important to keeping them knot-free.
Some of our favorite tips for layering necklaces are:
- Combine at least three necklaces
- Mix and match your styles
- Experiment with different necklace lengths
- Wear different metals
Another way to avoid your necklaces getting tangled is by picking ones that are of different lengths and thicknesses. If they start getting knotted throughout the day, use a needle to get rid of the tangle.
If you decide to style your luxurious jewels by layering necklaces, don’t overthink it. This styling option allows you to flaunt your personal style and be creative.
4. Be Selective With Your Earrings
If you decided your statement piece for the day is going to be a necklace, it’s best to go with a more delicate option for your earrings. For statement earrings, go with diamond or gemstone earrings to upgrade your look.
While earrings are tucked away, often behind our hair, they’re not an area that should be overlooked or left until the last minute. When you pick out your earrings, think about the event you’re dressing for. You want the jewelry to match the occasion.
Next, think about the vibe you want to give off. If you’re dressing for a black-tie event and want to look incredibly sophisticated, a pair of diamond earrings are likely a good pick. Earrings can set the tone of your entire outfit, so choose wisely.
Another thing to consider is the neckline of your shirt or dress. If you’re wearing a simple neckline, go with a pair of statement earrings. The simpler the neckline, the bolder you can be with your earrings.
5. Don’t Hesitate to Mix Metals
Don’t worry, it’s not a fashion faux pas to mix your metals when it comes to jewelry. The rules have evolved over time, and what was considered to not be acceptable by your grandmother is now in style.
One thing to keep in mind when mixing metals is balance. If you’re wearing mostly silver jewelry and then throw in a gold necklace, it’ll look out of place. Wear an equal amount of each metal throughout your jewelry.
For example, if you’re wearing several bracelets, wear a few in each metal of your preference. Mix the various metals evenly throughout our look.
You’ll also want to consider the tone of each jewelry piece. While mixing metals is okay, you don’t want to pair a whimsical piece of jewelry with a gemstone ring.
One final tip is to go with metals that complement your skin’s undertone. White and silver go best with cooler undertones. Rose gold and yellow gold are best for warmer undertones.
6. Wear Luxury Gemstones That You Love
The jewelry you wear is an expression of your personality. Pick pieces and gemstones that you love. If you have a vibrant personality, go with pieces that are brightly colored.
If you have a more composed and calm personality, wear pearls. Gemstones that have a medium glow and light colors perfectly accentuate an elegant personality.
However, feel free to experiment with different styles of jewelry until you find the one that suits you best. When investing in luxury pieces, you want to be sure that you’re selecting items that you’ll love for many years to come.
7. Don’t Forget About Bracelets
People usually think of necklaces, earrings, and rings when it comes to luxury jewelry. Don’t forget about styling with bracelets. Bracelets are a fun and easy way to tastefully adorn your arm with gorgeous gemstones.
Elevate a neutral look with a bright bracelet. You can also stack together multiple types of bracelets. And, nothing quite beats a diamond tennis bracelet when you’re wearing a slinky black dress.
