When you were younger, jewelry was a fun way to accessorize and express yourself. Now that you're an adult, it can still feel just as fun while also being luxuriously and more mature.
If you're ready to ditch cheap fast-fashion pieces and elevate your jewelry collection, you're in the right place. We're going to show you a few timeless jewelry pieces. Next, we'll teach you how to choose the best classic jewelry pieces that you'll enjoy for years to come.
1. FRESHWATER PEARLS
Pearl pieces have come in and out of style enough times to establish them as jewelry staples. The trends around pearls may change; sometimes chunky pearl necklaces are all the rage and at other times dainty pearl pendant necklaces are the way to go.
But no matter what, pearl jewelry is a classic staple that you need in your collection. You can wear them with casual and formal looks, and authentic pearls can last for a lifetime.
Baroque and freshwater pearls are a beautiful classic option that is also on-trend right now.
2. A DELICATE DIAMOND-CUT BRACELET
You need a timeless piece that you can rely on to dress up any outfit. It's understated enough for daily wear and yet elegant enough for a fancy night out. It dazzles in the light and will catch everyone's attention. It's also lightweight and easy to wear all day.
3. STUD EARRINGS
Stud earrings are a classic choice because they go with everything. Whether you go with diamond studs, sterling silver, or pearls, they add the perfect touch of timeless elegance to your look.
4. STATEMENT NECKLACE
Classic jewelry pieces don't always have to be delicate and understated. You can still show off your style and make a statement with a timeless piece.
You should always have a chunky statement necklace in your collection. It can add texture and a pop of color to your outfit while still being elegant. Opt for natural materials, like coral or gemstones, so it stands out from typical fast-fashion statement necklaces.
5. CHAIN AND LOCKET
Chains are versatile and easy to add to any look. You can layer a couple of them together, double-strand a long chain necklace, or go with a simple gold pendant.
They're another piece that can dress up or dress down any outfit and work for any occasion.
