There is such a wide selection of jewellery available nowadays that it can become difficult to decide what you want to buy. These tips will help you narrow it down a little when you shop for your jewellery online.
When it comes to shopping for jewellery, everyone has specific tastes. There are endless styles and designs to choose from whether it is for your own wardrobe or a gift. You may prefer vintage jewels whereas your loved one prefers a more contemporary design therefore you may not know where to begin when you go shopping. Here are some tips on picking out jewellery for yourself or a friend.
Pick A Colour
This doesn’t necessarily mean that your favourite colour will be the best when you pick out fashion jewellery. In fact, picking out a colour of jewellery which compliments your own hair or eye colour can really make your features stand out. Redheads really suit ruby reds and gold jewellery whereas blondes may be more suited to blue hues in their jewels. Purple and green stones really bring out green eyes and brunette hair. If you are pale skinned you may want to go for a strong colour as pale jewels (like beads) may make you look a little washed out. If you are not sure which colour to go for then stick to silver or gold as these look great on just about anyone.
Choose A Statement Piece
If you want to really show off your jewellery then choose at least one piece which really stands out. A large vintage necklace can really set off any outfit and can turn something simple into something a little more glamorous. If you prefer not to wear necklaces then a large bangle or ring will make a statement. Vintage stones look great but there are also some geometric designs out there which are better for those who like contemporary designs. Large earrings can instantly set off your outfit and can draw attention to your face if this is your best feature. You may even want to choose an expensive diamond piece to draw the eye such as those found at Acotis.
Jewellery As A Gift
It might be a good idea to stay away from anything a little too eccentric as a gift and stick to something classic that can be worn with everything. A simple, but traditional charm bracelet is a great gift for someone you love as they can personalise it with their own charms as time goes on. Try to choose it in silver or gold, depending on which they wear the most. A ring is also a great gift but remember to get the right size for your friend or family member. Men love a gift which has a purpose too so a classic watch is ideal.
Your choice of fashion jewellery really depends on your own personal style. You can even choose your favourite era for fashion to base your jewellery choice on or you can simply look at your existing wardrobe and match up your jewels with the clothes and colours you already own.
