Statement pieces of jewelry allow you to step out of the ordinary. While nothing new, many women avoid wearing bold accessories because they don’t feel comfortable leaving their comfort zone. We have searched and found some tips for you to find jewelry statement pieces that work!
The History of Statement Jewelry
For years, people have used clothing and accessories to portray who they are. Such items have often symbolized class and cultural identities. A great example: Jackie O's trademark black sunglasses. Beyond keeping the sun out of Jackie's eyes, they symbolized who Jackie was. Think about other icons such as Madonna and Prince, their jewelry, make-up and outfits always made a statement!
Understanding Statement Jewelry
Statement jewelry is bold and unique, and it conveys a statement about who the wearer is. Whether or not one is deliberate about style, people judge others based on their appearance. People assume many things about personality, values, and beliefs based on what a person is wearing. And the right statement piece creates confidence and self-assurance!
Consider these tips to select statement jewelry that’s right for you:
1. Size of Jewelry
Statement jewelry is usually big. Bold earrings, cuff bracelets, and bulky
pendants are common themes. At Beksan Designs’ our statement jewelry
comes in silver, 24kt gold vermeil and zinc dipped in silver. And statement
jewelry doesn’t have to be overbearing. For example, our zinc dipped in silver necklaces are beautiful but not heavy or too large. Statement jewelry should be proportional to the size of the woman wearing them.
2. One at a Time …Don’t go Overboard
When wearing a statement piece of jewelry, choose clothing and other accessories that are complementary. If wearing statement earrings, wear a small or gentle ring. If the necklace is making a statement, choose simple earrings. Small studs may be perfect. Wear one statement piece at a time; too many big, bold pieces of jewelry will look overdone.
Vintage jewelry, in and of itself, makes a statement. Whether a piece of jewelry is antique or just vintage-inspired, it adds sophistication. Consider our black onyx and marcasite pendants, rings and earrings. They have a vintage look to them and make a statement at the same time.
4. Wear Gemstones
The color and meaning behind gemstones make a statement of their own. Each colorful gemstone is associated with special spiritual and physical properties that gives them meaning. Through understanding the specific meanings behind different gems, individuals can choose statement jewelry that reflects what they’re looking for. For example, wear cornelian for courage. Try aquamarine for calmness and communication!
