Each piece must be versatile. The purpose of accessories is to add interest to an outfit. A great piece of jewelry is one that is not only beautiful but also complements several of your outfits. For example, if you wear a white shirt with denim jeans, wooden jewelry from will most likely complement your entire outfit perfectly. Similarly, if you’re wearing a gown, diamond jewelry is the best way to complement it. This is actually one of my pet peeves about wearing “matchy-matchy” jewelry. Ninety-nine percent of the time a matching necklace paired with matching earrings or a matching bracelet adds no additional value to an outfit – it’s not only outdated, but more importantly, it’s a visual distraction whereby people pay attention solely to the jewelry and not you. Plus a matching set is not versatile. Even if you break up the jewelry set and wear it separately, it’s not adding anything new, fresh or exciting to your daily outfits. Noisy jewelry also has its limitations. I always recommend noise-free jewelry especially on the job and since you work the majority of your week, this limits its value to your wardrobe.
