A Beginners Guide to Types of Jewelry

Are you looking to freshen up your look, but don’t want to invest in fast fashion? Opt for something that lasts practically forever, such as jewelry. No matter if small and subtle or big and bold, jewelry pieces can easily elevate your style and make you feel classy, sophisticated, and fun. To realize which types of jewelry are the best for you, here are a few styles to study first? 

Earrings

Let’s start from the top of the body, with ear jewelry. It’s always great to have a few pairs of earrings in your jewelry box since they can instantly and effortlessly enhance your casual look and make it formal and classy. Some of the most popular earring styles are classic hoops, drop earrings and small studs. Hoop earrings and drop earrings are usually a little bit bolder and more elegant, so they are a great choice if you want to stand out. Combine them with any outfit that shows off your shoulders and cleavage to add some interest to your upper body and face. Studs, on the other hand, are more versatile and can fit into any look. 

Necklaces

Necklaces always make a statement, no matter if they are chunky or delicate. They are a simple way to add elegance to your style, even though some pieces can be worn every day. Statement pieces, pendant necklaces, chokers—they all have their appeal and will help you accessorize quickly and easily. Additionally, they come in any material possible, from classic gold and silver pieces to Boho wooden and even bone models. 

Rings

We spend so much time looking at our hands, so decorating them with a bit of shine and glitz is a popular way to elevate one’s look. Diamond rings are one of the top choices among women thanks to their luster and sparkle, but their price tag might be troubling for some. If you’re looking for something precious and attractive, yet more affordable than diamonds, there are plenty of other gems to look into.

For instance, sapphire deep blue labradorite is a gorgeous stone perfect for ring-type jewelry. If you’re not familiar with its beauty, check out the Moon Magic blog and find out more about this gem, its properties, and symbolism. Pair a labradorite ring with any cocktail outfit and you’ll look like a movie star!  

Bracelets

Bracelets are a great way to show off your style, since they can be very subtle, very bold and shiny, and practically anything in between. When buying a bracelet, make sure to consider an occasion. If you love the sparkle and need something to elevate your evening outfits, any sort of gemstone bracelet will be a great choice (make sure to pay special attention to stone quality and leave the size in the background). If you prefer something timeless yet subtle, pearls might be your top choice. Bangles, on the other hand, always leave a big statement due to their size and style. If you’re aiming for practicality, investing in a quality everyday watch might be your safest bet—it will add style to your outfit and make your life easier all at the same time.  

Piercings

If you want to add some mystery and edge to your look and you don’t mind a little bit of pain, you can decorate your body with piercing jewelry. Aside from piercing your ears, there are nose, tongue, lip, navel piercings, and even skin implants. With piercings, you can opt for rings or studs, depending on the body part and what kind of impression you want to leave. Even though piercings aren’t permanent, it’s best to think about your decision long and hard before and find an experienced and licensed expert. 

Of course, there are so many other types of jewelry, but knowing about these few main types will allow you to make a great purchasing choice, lift up your outfit and make yourself sparkle and glow!
