Whether you are going to a party or a business meeting, a weekend outing or you are traveling,  always keep in mind that You MUST NOT OVER DO IT!

Too much bling will make you look over the top. Remember that a tiny piece of outstanding jewelry is always better than a number of inappropriate accessories…  Learn how to balance it out!

For example, if you have a set of bracelets on your wrist, DO NOT add a bunch of rings on the hand. Or, if you are wearing a trendy pair of statement earrings, skip the necklace.

Both pieces demand attention and make your complete appearance too much for any set of eyes.

Remember what we mentioned at the beginning of this paragraph, a nice tiny piece is better than a number of inappropriate ones. Jewelry is all about creating centers of attention and focal points to your overall outfit.

 Add Contrast

To highlight your jewelry, remember to choose pieces that are in contrast with your clothes.

For example, if you are wearing an outfit that has clean lines and neutral colors, choose statement flashing or vivid color jewelry.

This will add a touch of colors and flair to your overall appearance.

On the other hand, if you are wearing an outfit with bright colors and personality, choose jewelry that is small and understated. Remember that NOT overdoing is the key.

Wear to Impress Not to Depress

Have in mind what kind of occasion you will be going to. Choose jewelry that will shine in a flattering way and not put you on the spot as the over the top gal.

For example, if you are going to a wedding, avoid wearing jewelry pieces that will take all the glory and make everybody look at instead of looking at the bride.

Or, if you are attending a funeral, remember not to wear the most expensive pieces of jewelry you have! It will make you look over the top.

Your jewelry is supposed to make you feel good, not sad and miserable because you ended up being inappropriate.

Great jewelry can start a great conversation. “Who made it?”, “Where did you get it from?”, “Is there a story behind it?”.

Your jewelry needs to tell a story about you, about what you want to be, or who you are on the inside.

When choosing jewelry for any of occasion, you first need to think about which story will that particular piece tell, and what does that particular story say about who you are.

For example, when going to a social gathering, choose jewelry that comes with a great story behind it. This way you will a way to start a great conversation.

On the other hand, for occasions that don’t require that much talking, such as work or a business meeting, pick pieces that are more “Quieter” and don’t have that much to say.
