Spring Planning – Jewelry Essentials Part One
April 3, 2013
Spring staples that will remain in your jewelry box for a lifetime.
Endless things have been written about the important wardrobe staples that should be in every woman’s closet — a little black dress, a pair of jeans that make your legs look great, a well-cut blazer — but what about jewelry box staples? Jewelry isn’t just shiny and nice to look at — it’s also a really great investment if you buy classic, quality pieces that you can wear constantly and keep forever. On our list of must-haves: a pair of diamond earrings, a well-made watch and a traditional strand of pearls. Add to that a good pair of simple gold earrings, some pearl studs, an interesting cocktail ring and a cool cuff bracelet and you’re well on your way to the perfect jewelry collection this spring and beyond. The final touches are a few statement pieces — an awesome pair of earrings and a big, truly unique necklace (forget the J.Crew Bauble Necklace for this exercise) are the sort of investment pieces you’ll find yourself wearing again and again, whether it’s with a t-shirt, or a cocktail dress. What are the most useful pieces in your jewelry box? Invest in signature pieces that are classic but set you apart.
