TOP 5 JEWELLERY STYLING TIPS

Don’t we all agree that “happiness comes in a box full of jewellery”?

Having fine pieces of jewellery is secondary to knowing how to style your look. Like Iris Apfel, the American fashion icon and businesswoman, says, the reason why we should all wear jewellery is either one or all of the following reasons: Transformation, Punch, and Individuality. Yes! That’s what well-designed jewellery can do for you when you wear them just right.

WHAT IS JEWELLERY STYLING

Jewellery, and how you style it, tells your story every day and brings out your persona’s subtle nuances and charm. Jewellery has a voice and styling allows you to raise or lower it like a volume knob on the radio. You probably have all or some of these in your collection: Rings, Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, and Ear Cuffs.

Any piece you wear should suit the occasion, your outfit, and the story you want to tell. When done right, you won’t have to say a word. Your jewellery will speak for you.

HOW TO STYLE GOLD & SILVER JEWELLERY

Sif Jakobs has designed stylish yet affordable demi-fine jewellery that allows you to put together a sophisticated-chic look effortlessly. These timeless and elegant jewellery collections are designed to help you get ready for work or dress up for a party night with ease.

You can style your gold- or rhodium-plated silver work-appropriate jewellery pieces from Sif Jakobs by mixing and matching across collections.

JEWELLERY STYLING TRENDS

Pro tip: Notch up your look from so-so to stylish by finding the delicate balance between pieces and styles, shapes, colour, and texture.

Would You prefer to play it safe? Layering or stacking different styles from the same collection is a safe place to begin.

Want to try something different? Layer pieces of similar materials from across collections.

RINGS STYLING TIPS

With the online work culture that has become the norm, rings and hand jewellery is trending. These days, people dress for work meetings by wearing more accessories on their fingers and upper torso.

RING STYLING TRENDS

Essential styling tip #1: Rings play a central role in styling with jewellery. Stacking rings have been in vogue, and it’s here to stay.

The Sif Jakobs ring collections extend from classic Nordic styles, ideal for both daily wear and workwear, to sophisticated and bejewelled zirconia-studded splendours for a night out on the town.

The AW21 Belluno collection comes with three new stackable ring styles with zirconia stones in muted autumn shades, perfect for layering on different fingers or together.

Do you prefer a bold look? The Ferrara Ardito rings present a super-bold, eye-catching, and modern look. Whether worn together or separately, these rings make for excellent office wear as well as stand-out statement jewellery for going out.

EARRINGS STYLING TIPS

Earrings can be great conversation starters! So choose your earrings carefully when you dress for work or play. Earrings are all about impressions, setting expectations and the right tone, especially for work meetings. Also, sometimes workwear dictates the accessories you choose.

HOW TO STYLE YOUR EARRINGS

Essential Jewellery Styling Tip #2: Always choose earrings that complement the shape of your face - round/long/oval/square/heart. The idea is to create balance. For instance,

  • A round face looks great in long danglers and not so much in round studs or hoops. Take a look at this elegant beauty.
  • A heart-shaped face has a pointed chin and wide cheekbones. You will look lovely in teardrop-shaped earrings.
  • If you have a long rectangular face, try cluster studs or simple, understated zirconia studs and medium-oval drops.

NECKLACES STYLING TIPS

Necklaces are a great way to draw attention to your face and neckline and create a point of interest. Your necklace will accentuate the best in your clothes and help balance the proportions of your figure.

Essential Jewellery Styling Tip #3: We recommend choosing your focal point of attention this season before deciding on your jewellery.

NECKLACES GUIDE

Like earrings, consider your body type and height when choosing necklaces. If yours is a petite stature, go for delicate necklaces of short and medium length.

Women with a broader frame look good in medium-long necklaces with pendants to create a tapered V-shape, while tall women can wear any length, including the longer matinee, and rope styles with bold medallion pendants.

HOW DO I STYLE MY NECKLACES?

The Sif Jakobs necklace collection has delightfully edgy chains and delicate pendant necklaces, including work-appropriate jewellery pieces. Each style can be worn alone as well as combined with necklaces from across collections.

You can pick your favourites and try out various combinations working up and down from the main piece. It’s hard to go wrong when you have great designs backing you.

BRACELETS STYLING TIPS

Bracelets are available for every reason, mood and style and are very popular for the same reason as other hand jewellery. They bring cheer, carry memories, and make excellent companions for other wrist-wear.

HOW TO WEAR BRACELETS

Essential Jewellery Styling Tip #4: Don’t be afraid to mix and match your bracelets.

HOW TO MIX AND MATCH

Choose bracelets of the correct size based on their design. To create an effortlessly stylish look, play around with bracelets of different widths. You can also opt for contrasting material colours like gold and silver or tennis bracelets with multicoloured stones alongside a stylish leather band for a bolder look.

EAR CUFFS STYLING TIPS

We love our ear cuffs! They are the stylist’s answer to creating a trendy, multi-pierced look without a million punctures on your ears.

SIMPLE EAR CUFFS

Essential Jewellery Styling tip #5: Wearing simple ear cuffs with your minimal studs or medium danglers can elevate your look from office wear to going out for a cuppa in no time.

TYPES OF EAR CUFFS

Ear-cuffs in simple designs hug the helix of your ears. They may be 1-2mm thick, in plain gold or silver, or studded with zirconia for a subtle sparkle. More extended ear-cuffs, also called ear-crawlers, can extend from your lobe piercing with a clip midway up your helix to hold it in place.

In Sif Jakobs ear-cuff collection, you will find the best choices for everyday wear designed in a way that allows you to mix and match with studs, hoops, or elegant danglers to create your unique style.
