I’m a jewelry lover. If you’ve been following my videos over the years, you know that I love to experiment and have fun with jewelry. I’m the type of girl that tends to go for the simple outfits and use jewelry to jazz things up and add some sparkle. It’s easy to build up a jewelry collection with inexpensive, trendy items that go in and out of style. It’s comforting to know that you’re wearing a piece that you won’t cry over if you misplace, break, or lose. However, as I’ve started growing up (turned 25 in January!) I’ve started to consider the importance of investing in a few timeless key pieces.
Diamonds never go out of style. Investing in a classic piece you know you’ll wear all the time is never something you’ll regret. If you’re new to shopping for finer jewelry, I’d suggest going to Zales as they are known for being the diamond experts. Regardless, here are some suggestions for beginning to establish a foundation for a solid, quality jewelry collection.

Diamond Stud Earrings – They’re versatile and can be dressed up or down. You can be wearing a T-shirt & jeans or even pajamas and feel a bit more special. They also play well with any other jewelry you may already own or own in the future.
Statement Ring – A good, bold ring is often all you need! However, don’t draw so much attention to your hands if they aren’t looking their best. Before Youtube, I worked in retail at a high-end department store, and it was always stressed to us that we keep our nails well-manicured as people do tend to pay quite a bit of attention to hands. When wearing a statement ring, it’s best to make sure your nails are in good shape. Even if you’re not wearing polish, your nails should be neat and clean at the very least.
Statement Necklace – Like diamond stud earrings, a statement necklace is the easiest way to instantly elevate your look.
Cultured Pearls – Not diamonds, but just as classic. Pearls are an excellent way to look more sophisticated and make a strong impression without all the shimmer and sparkle of diamonds. They are understated yet impactful. Ideal for any situations where you want to be taken more seriously such as work or at a formal event.
Building a strong jewelry collection is similar to building a wardrobe. The basics are the ideal place to start and the ideal way to enhance any outfit. Fashion is about expression and the jewelry you wear says a lot about who you are and what you value.
