Going Unconventional with Your Jewelry

Aug 17, 2007
Fine jewelry is classic and elegant, right? Not necessarily. You can have a lot of fun with fine jewelry.

Certainly there are some basic elements that most people like to have in their fine jewelry wardrobe. Diamond studs, one of the popular diamond necklaces, pearl studs, strand of pearls, maybe a tasteful selection of rings.

You can have a much more interesting selection of jewelry if you like, however. Let it sparkle not only with beautiful gemstones, but with personality too!

Designers produce some truly stunning pieces in jewelry. The colors of the gemstones combined with creative craftsmanship can create wearable pieces of art. Yet they can still work with your professional or day to day wardrobe.

One of the simplest ways to add a little spice to your jewelry is to select pieces that have multiple colors of gemstones in them. It's easy to find rings with diamonds plus a gemstone in them. They're classic and all over the place. But if you combine, say, high quality opal with a fiery ruby, emerald, sapphire, amethyst or other bright stone, you'll have something that really stands out.

And enjoy your earrings more too! Long dangles, short dangles, earrings that go up the ear instead of down, they can all be beautiful.

Necklaces are often made of very interesting gemstone combinations. Brightly colored pearls of various shapes are quite popular right now. Coin pearls are used for many designs.

With rings you want a combination of fantastic design with something highly wearable. A ring that sits too tall on your finger is more likely to be damaged or even to lose gemstones if it is damaged too much. Some designs may just not sit right and be uncomfortable.

The challenge of selecting the right pieces can be daunting. Even as you go a little or a lot unconventional with your jewelry you have to think about where you will be wearing them. For a more professional look, long, dangling earrings may not be too appropriate, but a short dangle may be acceptable. Perhaps an unusual stud earring would be better. It just depends on the situation.

Fortunately, there are times when having an unusual piece of jewelry is the perfect idea. Those are the times you can really just enjoy displaying your taste in jewelry. Pick a piece that goes just perfectly with your outfit and see what people think. Unusual yet beautiful jewelry tends to generate a lot of complements.
