If you like to live by the mantra go big or go home, statement jewellery is undoubtedly the jewellery for you. Statement pieces are items of jewellery that demand attention wherever they go. They’re usually big, bold and bright… and they’re definitely not for the faint-hearted!
If you’re planning to expand your statement jewellery collection, here are a few pointers on how to choose pieces that will really work for you.
Consider your colouring
Many statement jewellery pieces feature wonderfully bright gems. Taking these colours into account can really help you to find jewellery that will compliment your natural gorgeousness. Try experimenting with different hues to see which colours make your face shine and which wash you out. You may be surprised at how much of a difference it can make!
Consider your face shape
We’re all different, and we don’t all suit the same styles. If you’re looking for a bold necklace or pair of earrings, your face shape will likely play a big role in your choice. Try on different shapes of earring and necklace to find the styles that work best. You’ll want to steer clear of pieces that overwhelm your face and gravitate towards the ones that look like they were made for you.
Consider your clothing style
The beauty of statement jewellery is that it really helps to create an outfit. With this in mind, you’ll want to make sure you choose jewellery that compliments your clothing style. For example, if you usually wear ditzy florals, a tribal inspired collar necklace may not be quite the right fit.
