What exactly is statement jewelry?
Statement jewelry can be any piece that is really eye catching and draws attention to you. That could mean shape, color, scale or even materials that you’re using. For instance, a 3-D printed necklace or a textile necklace. But it’s usually the scale or some interesting and different feature that sets it apart.
Does statement jewelry still have a place in today’s wardrobe?
Absolutely. Statement pieces are an expression of who you are and that is very important in today’s wardrobe. Statement pieces are a powerful item you can use to punctuate your wardrobe. That doesn’t mean statement jewelry is for everyone, but if you’re not afraid, go for it!
How do I test out a bigger piece of statement jewelry?
Start with inexpensive costume jewelry or fashion jewelry to see if it’s really a good fit for you. Then keep these questions in mind: Do you wear it everyday or only sometimes? Does it feel like a good fit for your personality?
What are some examples of statement jewlery?
To make a classic statement you could go with a long strand of pearls that can be worn in a variety of ways.
To make a bold statement, go with something large scale that has an interesting element or clasp.
For a more artistic statement, something smaller and more delicate overall but has a really bold, eye-catching feature such as a gemstone pendant.
What’s the most important thing to remember when considering statement jewelry?
Don’t be afraid to be seen. Don’t let the jewelry wear you, you wear the jewelry.
