Every woman loves to own and flaunt jewellery. There is a very personal relationship a woman has with the pieces of jewels she owns, and each of them is close to her heart; and truth be told, there can never be enough jewellery. But some pieces of jewellery are quintessential for every jewellery box – pieces that can be worn as accessory with any outfit to any occasion, without fail.
Every woman should have a handful of such pieces. Here are 6 must-have jewellery that every woman should own.
1. Statement Neck Piece
Statement neckpieces are an important part of Indian fashion jewellery. The necklace can be traditional, crafted from gold, silver, polki or Kundan-Jadau; or it can also be western in style. Oxidised or German Silver neckpieces are also quite in vogue nowadays. These statement neckpieces go with any attire, whether it is a sari or jeans and a top. All you need to do is find the right design that matches with the outfit. The traditional sets obviously go hand in hand with sari or suits. However, if you have some ethnic or Bohemian-chic styles in your collection, they can go with anything. The best part about statement neckpieces is that you do not need to wear any other accessory with it at all, even on a special occasion.
2. Dangler Earrings
Earrings are the most essential type of jewellery, and the most common. There are women who do not prefer necklaces or bracelets all the time, but earrings in varying lengths and weights are always welcome. However, the thing about dangler earrings specifically is that they are so very pretty, and no woman can deny that. Hanging from the ears, they look like your very own beautiful chandeliers. One can have them in whichever material they want, but oxidized jewellery is the most preferred one when it comes to big danglers.
3. Cocktail Rings
Cocktails rings are dynamic in nature. In a sense, they do not really make your break your look. Unlike neckpieces or danglers, cocktail rings are not very flaunty in nature. Nevertheless, with a cocktail ring, that suits you best and you can carry it with confidence, you can make quite a statement. Big and colourful semi-precious stones set in silver or gold are very popular nowadays as simplistic yet bold cocktail rings. For a more traditional look, you can hunt for ethnic jewellery online.
4. Big, Bold Hoops
If anyone is thinking that hoops are too simple to get onto this list, they are wrong. Hoops are the gift to womankind when it comes to earrings. The bigger you can carry the better. Dresses, denims, shorts – hoops are mostly preferred with western dresses. However, if you want light jewellery for traditional wear and do not want a stud, the hoop will not fail you, ever.
5. Solitaire ring
Surely, it is a much expensive piece than the rest of them, but without a doubt a necessary one. Solitaire rings are traditionally associated with engagement or marriage, and that is beautiful. However, that does not mean a woman cannot have it otherwise, simply as jewellery, because clearly, one should not need an excuse to own a solitaire ring. It can be a diamond or any other stone like sapphire, ruby or emerald. A solitaire ring is an entity in itself.
6. Set of stackable bracelets
Stackable bracelets are perfect, because you can separate the pieces and mix-and-match them according to what you are wearing or to where. You will find different sizes and designs if you look for fashion jewellery online. The ones that come with the spiral springs look cheerful and casual. While the silver, gold or bronze imitation ones can be for special occasions.
