Picture this: you go to a jeweler and buy the most expensive diamond necklace out there. You then decide to wear the statement piece to your brother’s wedding. And when you finally wear it, you realize that the only statement it’s making is ‘hey, I’m a cheapo craving for some attention.’
Here, Onmanorama Women has compiled a few jewelry faux pas one should always avoid.
1. Wearing big danglers with a layered neckpiece and multiple bracelets is a complete no. So learn to keep it simple. Avoid wearing big earrings if you are wearing a statement necklace.
2. Do not wear multiple hair accessories. Too much stuff on your head looks messy. Your hair shouldn't be the first, second, or even third focal point. It should be your face, your ring, and your dress. Instead of using fresh flowers, use artificial flowers or accessories as fresh flowers will be smelly and dry in just a few hours.
3. Don't neglect the neckline. The right neckpiece can enhance your look for the day, and certain neckpieces highlight unique features or draw the eye upwards toward your face. Strapless and sweetheart dresses really show off your neck, shoulders, and chest, so play that up by choosing a neckpiece that falls just below the collarbone. If your dress has a high neck, you can balance and elongate the torso with a longer neckpiece.
4. A single jewelry piece makes a statement of your fashion. Refrain from wearing a heavy neckpiece with matching chandelier earrings. They're meant to be worn separately even if they came into your life as a set.
5. Never wear jewelry that is too tight for comfort. No piece of jewelry that makes your neck, arm or finger bulge out is visually pleasing, leave alone being comfortable.
6. Do not continue wearing precious jewelry without touching up its polish and rhodium once in a while. Like everything else, metal is subject to wear and tear, it will fade, get bruised, probably even chip, or have the chemical reaction to perfumes or henna.
