8 Must-Have Jewelry Items For Every Jewelry Box

   Of all the fashion items, jewelry is my absolute favorite. It’s like adding toppings to your ice cream – endless possibilities! Add rainbow sprinkles to vanilla ice cream and it looks one way but if you take away the sprinkles and add fudge and a cherry, you’ve created a whole new look. That’s the magic of jewelry (and ice cream toppings). So, here is my must-have jewelry for every jewelry box so you can experience the infinite and yummy options for yourself!

Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces are just that – necklaces that make a statement. They are often big and bold with colorful stones, so keep other accessories or distracting patterns to a minimum. Let them speak for themselves. They will add some pizazz to a white button down or bring a feminine touch to boyfriend jeans.

Delicate Necklaces

These are fun to layer, or wear alone with more laid back ensembles. You can get them for cheap at stores like Forever 21 or H&M so build up your collection and start layering!

Pay attention to the lengths of the necklaces when layering though. You wouldn’t want them all to be the same length or else you’ll have a collision on your chest. Adjust them so that each necklace is visible.

Diamond Studs

These are probably the most versatile pieces you could have in your jewelry box. They can be a sparkly addition to a simple, everyday outfit or some extra glitz for a more formal ensemble.

Stackable Bracelets

I’ve recently come to LOVE these. They’re so much fun to mix and match and they’re a super easy way to add pops of color to your outfit. Personally, I like to incorporate different textures and sizes when stacking my bracelets. I’ll add a bangle or a hand chain beside beaded pieces to spice it up.

Glam Bracelet

It’s always good to have something versatile for formal outfits especially if going to formal events isn’t something you do all the time. No need to go out shopping when you already have something that will go with anything!

All the rings in the world!

Okay so I’ll admit, I have a bit of a penchant for rings (possibly an obsession). Right now, wearing a lot of them are in style; from statement rings on every finger to midi-rings galore. When you have a bunch of versatile rings, it is very easy to mix and match. Have some fun with it! Below are some of my favorite examples of this trend.

Something Personalized

Personalized jewelry is a fun way to add a bit of “you” into your collection. Whether it be a monogram necklace or a birthstone ring, find something that represents you! I love this hamsa necklace from My Name Necklace because it has my initial and my birthstone!

 A silver or gold watch

So I’m a bit of a hypocrite for saying gold or silver watches are must-have jewelry items because I don’t own one myself at the moment. Oops! Nevertheless, I like them because they are more professional looking than a bracelet, but still feminine. Plus, it’s always fun to see if you remember how to read an analog clock every once in awhile 😉

    a jewelry must have for me would def have to be a nice statement piece along with a very bold bracelet you could never go wrong with those two. They make any simple look stand out.
