It’s always easy to go overboard with jewellery. Do you layer up or wear it big? Do you keep it simple or pull a Taylor Swift? Here’s a list of common jewellery Faux Pas you definitely must avoid.
1.Statements Shouldn’t Shout
A single piece maketh a statement. Abstain from wearing a chunky neckpiece with matchy-matchy chandelier earrings. They’re meant to be worn separately even if they came into your life as a set. We know it’s tempting to wear it all, but you’ll do better to abstain.
2. Size Does Matter
Usually size isn’t a jewellery concept. There doesn’t exist an exact definition of too large. However, if a ring is larger than your finger, it’s probably not for you. Also never wear huge statement rings on your pinkie finger or your thumb. Remember: size doesn’t make statement.
3. Spotlight Alert
Jewellery draws attention. Everybody knows that. So if you’re flaunting a dazzling diamond on your finger, or you’re sporting a cute little toe-ring, never ever skip a mani-padi. Your jewels will draw all eyes and you want to give them something worth their while.
4.Never Neglect The Neckline
Necklaces and necklines go hand in hand. A choker doesn’t compliment a turtle neck. A low scoop neck doesn’t work well with a pendant on a mid-length chain. A simple rule to play by is to have the necklace fall above or below the neckline, and never the same length.
5.Nobody Likes Plastic
Do not wear plastic jewellery. Or paper jewellery. Unless you’re pre-teen. There are absolutely no exceptions to this rule. Unless it’s Halloween (still not a great costume choice!) or something your child made for you in craft class. (but don’t wear it out of home!)
