They may be called accessories but a piece of jewellery holds the power to make or break an outfit. Here are some tips to help you find the jewellery that suits you best and elevate any look.
Jewellery looks great when it is a different shape than your morphology.
Let’s start with earrings and how to find the perfect pair for your face shape.
If you have a round or oval face shape, longer, hanging earrings will look amazing on you. Hoops are also a favourite of oval face gals.
For narrow faces, studs and clusters of earrings compliment your face shape perfectly. For inspiration, just type in ear candy into Pinterest and get ready to become obsessed. Try mixing our Tie breaker, Doubles and Point earrings for a stack that will become your everyday essentials.
For others jewellery, the rules are a little different. For necklaces or bracelets, the shape should compliment your silhouette.
Depending on where you want to draw the eye may help determine which length chain you choose. Love your collarbones? Choose our 40cm length.
Want to draw the eye a little further south, a 45cm necklace is perfect.
For rings, the rules get popped in a suitcase and tossed in the ocean. Stack em high, wear one at a time. Big rings on pinkies and fine rings on thumbs. Our hands are often one of the first things people notice about us. A bold mani, a statement ring, whether you talk with you hands or are never without a coffee in your hand, they’re on show.
