You have a style and personality that sets you apart from everyone else. One of the best ways to express yourself is with stylish jewellery. It can accentuate your best features, make you feel confident, and show off your unique individuality.

Most jewellery pieces, like the ionic pearl necklace and a pair of diamond studs, have stood the test of time. That makes everyday styling much easier since you have a point of reference. However, incorporating bespoke accessories that reflect your personal style can be challenging. Here are some tips to help you do so perfectly:

Mix and match your metal jewellery

Wearing certain metal jewellery together, like a gold bracelet with a silver ring, has been considered a fashion sin. But recently, it’s become a trend!

Try combining metal accessories together by layering two different coloured pieces, such as rose gold and yellow gold. To create a cohesive look, match your mixed metal jewellery with similarly toned outfits. 

Layer up your jewellery

Stand out from the crowd and spice up your everyday outfit by layering up some of your favourite jewellery pieces. Mix up your metal options with various textures and materials by layering up bangles and bracelets. For statement earrings, stack them by mixing multiple sizes and shapes, especially if you have multiple ear piercings.

When putting together statement necklaces and pendants, experiment with contrasting textures, styles, and lengths. Try incorporating different combinations to determine what works and what doesn’t.

Never underestimate your earring choice

The kind of earrings you wear says a lot about you more than you think. Your choice is crucial because others can easily see them. After all, it’s within their field of vision when they talk to you!

As such, consider an ideal everyday pair to express your personality. You can also mix it up with pieces that reflect your current mood. When the design, colour, and length of earrings perfectly match your features and style, you can even frame your face and complement your eye, skin tone, and hair.

Remember—practice makes perfect. So, don’t be afraid to mix up your earring choice and other jewellery options.

 

Don’t go overboard

Experimenting with different statement jewellery and your chosen look can be fun, but you should not go overboard. Embody what Coco Chanel once said: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” Remember—there’s a thin line between looking trendy and tacky, so know when enough is enough.

The best way to wear the appropriate amount of jewellery is to stick with one or two types of metals to have a seamless look. Choose one cohesive combination and stick to it to prevent overlapping too many clashing pieces. For instance, you can stick to simple earrings if you’re layering up your necklaces!

Conclusion

The right statement jewellery piece completes your outfit, highlights your natural beauty, and allows you to stand out from the crowd. Fortunately, you now have a better understanding of what it takes to be the best at and picking the appropriate accessories! Remember all the previously mentioned tips and unleash your inner fashion icon today!

Olive & Piper: Reasons why the holidays are a perfect time for jewellery

When it comes to gift-giving, you can never really go wrong with jewellery. There’s something about this classic present staple that still manages to add a special touch for both the giver and the recipient.

The right jewellery is timeless and can fit any occasion for any time of the year—which is why choosing carefully is just as important as giving the gift itself! With the perfect backdrop of the holiday season, there are so many reasons why now is the right time to choose a piece of jewellery, put it in a gift box, and give it to someone you love.

Here are the reasons why holidays are the perfect time for giving and receiving jewellery:

1) It’s a Special Moment for Everyone Involved

If you know your loved one well, then you’ll surely choose the right jewellery piece that will suit her. It may or may not be a significant piece beyond the special time of the holidays, but whether it’s a custom-made one or a simple token of gratitude for her love, it will surely be a special moment for everybody involved. Seeing her face when she opens the box will also be a treat in itself, so it’s a win-win!

2) Quality Holiday Jewelry Lasts Forever

Jewellery makes some of the best heirlooms to pass down to children and grandchildren. These can range from anywhere between pearl necklaces, gold bracelets, studded earrings, and other fantastic pieces. Presenting your significant other with a special piece of jewellery during a season that celebrates family and love can make the moment even more special. This special moment will also be quite a story to tell when your children inherit the particular piece when the time comes.

3) Holiday Jewelry is Suitable for Every Day

Unless it’s a piece with a grand ornamental design, most jewellery can be worn every day and are not exclusive to holidays or special occasions. One of the best parts of your morning routine might be putting on your necklace or ring as it reminds you of the moment when it was given to you. It’s the perfect touch and a great way to start your day!

4) Holiday Jewelry is an Expression of Love

Customized jewellery adds a little bit of thoughtfulness to an already special present. Whether you’re giving it to your partner or a cherished family member, knowing what they like and reflecting it in the accessory you choose will give them an extra sense of delight. Perhaps your spouse adores the ocean—then giving her a pair of little starfish-shaped earrings or a necklace with a seashell pendant will guarantee a great appreciation for such a thoughtful gift.  Jewellery is the perfect way to show someone that you know and love them without saying a word.

5) Holiday Jewelry is Not Chosen at Random

The holidays give people a feeling of a time that should be cherished, as everyone remembers what they’re thankful for in the year that has passed. Choosing a present during this season is always special, and holiday jewellery certainly isn’t an exception. This kind of gift should always be chosen carefully and never at random. It’s up to you whether you want to take the simple route and go with a single piece of jewellery or go the extra mile and get your beloved an entire jewellery set. What you choose for them is completely dependent on their preferences. Each consideration demands thoughtfulness and time, all of which will pay off when the recipient finally sees the gift.

Conclusion

Jewellery is simple, but it can be a powerful thing when given. The right piece of jewellery given during the right moment can create a memory that lasts forever, making it a very special moment for both of you. By surprising your loved ones with them during the holidays, you are creating a moment that they’re sure to remember every time they wear the little trinket that you chose for them this holiday season.
