The 7 Essential Pieces of Jewelry That Are Worth the Investment

The idea of a capsule wardrobe is nothing new—the best jeans, sweater, T-shirt, jacket, etc. Narrow enough to keep dressing streamlined and easy, while always keeping you looking top notch. The same goes for jewelry. There are certain classic and timeless jewelry essentials that every jewelry box should have, but still leave room for those special purchases that give your look personality (similar to a fashion “statement piece”).

The perfect diamond studs and chain necklace are just as big of a fashion crutch as blue jeans and a white T-shirt. In fact, they’re far more versatile and can be worn for a work Zoom call just as well as for cocktails when the world reopens again. Below is our guide to the 7 pieces of classic, timeless jewelry that will never lead you astray.

Stud Earrings

There’s a reason the stud is your first earring. Besides the whole piercing process, it simply goes with everything. They add an easy touch of sparkle that can be worn no matter the occasion—gym and pool included.

Hoop Earrings

It’s a classic style that delivers subtle attitude. Big or small, hoop earrings make a statement without being over the top.

Bangle Bracelet

Adorn your arms with a single bangle bracelet or stack them up—the latter will create the most delightful jingling sound. They pair well with just about everything, from a cable knit sweater to a breezy sundress.

Pendant Necklace

A pendant is an easy way to wear something meaningful (your initials, your zodiac sign) close to your heart. Best of all, there’s no need to wear just one. 

Gold Chain Necklace

Thick or thin, gold chain necklaces are an essential. A more chunky style will add an edge to your ensemble (perfect for power dressing) while a wispy chain adds a bit of femininity. You’ll likely need one of each.

Pearl Strand

Pearl necklaces are passed down for a reason—they will absolutely never go out of style. We love a double strand with various sized pearls but you can’t go wrong with the classic single stand either.

Stacking Ring

Wearing more than one ring on a finger can take some strategy. Do they fit snuggly on top of each other?  Do they add too much bulk to your digit? A simple gold band is a great starting point but better yet, opt for an already stacked multi-ring style that will do all the work for you.

Buying Jewelry for Yourself: The Ultimate Guide

As a woman of the world, you’re independent — you know what you want, and you go after it. Whether it’s a great job, a fantastic vacation or an amazing apartment, you don’t wait for things to come to you. The same should go for jewelry — you don’t need a lover or a relative to decide to give you jewelry as a gift. If there’s a special piece you want to have, you can — and should — go out and buy jewelry for yourself.

It can be exciting, empowering, a needed boost after a bad day or a reward for a great one. It may even be all of the above!

You can build your fine jewelry wardrobe piece by piece, beginning with the basics, or go right for a showstopper your first time out — as with all things, it’s totally up to you. More women than ever before are taking the initiative and shopping for themselves.

In terms of basics, diamond studs are the perfect way to buy jewelry for yourself — they’re elegant, minimal, and have sparkle to spare. You can also find diamond studs in a carat weight to fit any budget, which makes them a great way to begin building your fine-jewelry collection.
