5 Jewelry Styles (Not) to Invest in (2022)
You can’t always control the weather, but you can always control what you wear on your body. The most important thing to remember when it comes to jewelry is that it’s a form of expression. It doesn’t have to be a standard for all, but it should be meaningful to you. Inspite of our suggestions, if any of the listed styles makes you happy, then do wear it!
Ever feel judgemental looking at people on the street wearing jewelry that is not appropriate for their clothes? Or you feel caught up in far too many fashion-trends and end up choosing junk over timeless jewelry? Here’s a small guide on outdated jewelry styles inspired by the current Y2K trends that you must bid goodbye to and move on to something meaningful, with signature craftsmanship.
- Colorful, Oversized Jewelry
It’s a little childish, and you’re an adult.
Butterfly jewelry, animal-shaped pendants, and charm bracelets don’t give off a high-end vibe. No matter how much they cost, they are seen as childish and not right for young people.
Avoid anything too cartoonish, especially if it’s colored in primary hues. That rules out anything with a heart shape or that has the appearance of a toy or a mythical creature. You can always choose to wear gold chains, instead of these and look your best.
- Beaded Jewelry
Those are only some beads strung together, that’s all. More like a keychain?
A necklace that appears like it could have been created with a few stray beads and some string is not worth the price tag. Also, most people think that beaded necklaces are a very mature accessory that people in their twenties and thirties should avoid.
While it is recommended to avoid beads altogether, remember that little is more when decorating with them. Beads can make you look older, so stick to gold, silver, ruby, or tanzanite jewelry that solely uses them as embellishments, and choose small beads over a medium or large one. Bead jewelry can be given a more high-end appearance by replacing cheaper materials like glass and plastic with pearls and semi precious stones.
- Plastic String Jewelry
To put it bluntly, it’s not sturdy. Plus, it’s a bad investment for the environment as well. Metals with a higher specific gravity (and precious stones) have a more luxurious appearance and feel. However, a large pendant or a statement necklace that dangles loosely, as if it were made of aluminum foil (bought from a clearance jewelry sale), will undoubtedly give off an impression of being cheap.
The weight of a piece of jewelry should be suitable for its size and the material from which it is fashioned (or imitated). The weight of a piece determines how it will hang and move on your body, so when these qualities don’t appear to go together, it’s a dead giveaway that the jewelry is of poor quality. Also, you want your jewelry to look like it was made well, especially in case of classic pieces such as tennis bracelets, pearl strands, or Tanzanite pendants, so make sure the clasps and closures work and that the different parts are either soldered together or put together with hinges and screws.
- Fur & Feather Jewelry
Feather jewelry isn’t easy to maintain. In 2015, the ’70s bohemian mood that rocked the runways in September will begin making its way into stores, intensifying the current feather craze. However, if a feather is broken or soiled, it ceases to be beautiful and ethereal and becomes nothing more than trash.
Choose a feather shape carved from stone, or metal, if you want something you can keep forever. It will last a lot longer and you won’t have to hurt or kill a bird to get it.
- Bold & Sizeable Pendants
Many people falsely believe that adding a large statement necklace to an otherwise uninteresting ensemble will instantly elevate it to the level of chic and sophistication. Even if they’re wildly popular, those enormous bibs with all the beads and rhinestones never manage to appear stylish. Simply put, they are adorable. “Check me out! A huge necklace is what I am! ” Maybe a Polki Diamond set?
Substitute a pendant, choker, or lariat for that garish statement necklace. Use many thin necklaces to create a tiered effect. Use earplugs if you must. The same can be said of a bangle. Anything! There is no longer any need for a massive, multicolored, jeweled display necklace. We must now proceed. And if you wish to accessorize yourself search for a handbag shop online and choose a stylish handbag to go with your look.
If you are not confident in your own style, you may be more likely to rely on jewelry to make a statement. Unfortunately, this can often lead to tacky jewelry choices. The best way to become more confident in your style is to experiment with different looks and find what works best for you.
On the other hand, if you are trying too hard to be fashionable, you may also end up with tacky jewelry. It’s important to find a happy medium between trying too hard and not trying at all. Find pieces that are stylish, but still reflect your personal style. When choosing jewelry, it’s important to consider the occasion. If you are dressing up for a formal event, you would not want to wear the same jewelry you would wear to the beach. Be sure to choose pieces that are appropriate for the event you are attending. Just as you should consider the occasion when choosing jewelry, you should also consider your outfit. If you are wearing a bright, colorful dress, you would not want to wear a lot of jewelry. Choose pieces that will complement your outfit, not clash with it.
