More doesn’t always mean better - especially when it comes to a jewelry collection. We’re the first to admit our jewelry boxes/dishes are packed with tangling statement necklaces, colorful ear plugs, and studs in every type of shape. But as we invest in high-quality and timeless pieces, we find it’s less about how many pieces we have and so much more about what kinds of jewelry we own.
If you’re looking to invest in high-quality jewelry that will take you from day to night and every kind of event on your calendar - keep reading for our guide to building a “capsule wardrobe” for your jewelry collection.
Also, while you’re here - check out our guide to jewelry trends based on your birthstone.
Stud earrings like our 14k Gold Bar Stud Earrings are timeless additions you can (and will) wear over and over. They add a little shimmer to a simple look and just the right amount of style if you’re layering them with other piercings.
Pro tip: Since studs are generally small, we recommend storing them in the same place to avoid losing them. And if you LOVE a pair, get an extra set so you'll always have a backup.
Take a look at more stud earrings from our Avanti online jewelry collection:
- Threadless 14K Gold Quadruple Diamond Marquis Fan Studs
- Low Profile Marquis Fan Tops
- Threaded Opal & Stone Tops
We’re believers that every jewelry capsule wardrobe should have a few “stand out” pieces. For those days when you want to try something different, these Threadless 14K Gold Snake Ends are classic yet striking.
Here are other statement pieces from our Avanti online store:
Long Necklace & Choker
If you have a long necklace (or two) and a choker - you’ve got a perfect balance for a variety of looks and necklines. Chokers spice up an outfit while a long necklace can easily be layered with other pieces for an effortlessly stylish look. Both serve different purposes, so we recommend having one or two of each depending on the outfit.
Subtle accessories go a long way. You can dress them up or down, and wear them alone or mix and match them with other pieces. Try the Implant Grade Seam Rings for a durable and timeless piece that makes a statement.
Here are more minimalist accessories for your capsule jewelry collection:
Bracelets for Layering
It’s always a good idea to have a few bracelets that can be worn alone or layered. Whether you love a classic bangle or chunky beaded bracelets is up to you!
Last but not least, a few pieces of jewelry with color will brighten up your collection. Our favorites from our Avanti store include Rainbow Bezel CZ Hinged Clicker (above) and the Rainbow Gem Arc Cluster Top.
Final notes on a capsule wardrobe for your jewelry
The biggest goal of a jewelry “capsule wardrobe” is to have a collection full of pieces you LOVE wearing. Since we all have different styles with personal tastes, your capsule pieces will look different from the person next to you. That’s the fun part! But we hope this guide gives you a helpful breakdown of pieces to invest in over time.
