Tips For Trying On and Buying Jewelry

  • Rings: small but unique and pretty hand jewelry. It's very helpful to know your ring size, but not necessary since you can usually try them on.

    However, multiple times I've gone to stores, tried on rings, gotten home, and they were too big. So where's the disconnect?

    When trying on rings, you'll notice they're usually attached to a plastic/paper backing with some sort of strap. The strap can make the ring feel smaller than it actually is, so make sure to take the added material into account. I often size down from what feels right.

  • Bracelets: although this one may seem straightforward, it can sometimes be a bit tricky.

    Remember: bangles may look cute, but they tend to slide up and down your arm. If that doesn't bother you, forge ahead!
    And did you know that if you wear a snug bracelet or watch day after day, your wrist will actually get thinner? Not noticeably so, but a bit, yes. So don't buy a should-be-snug bracelet thinking you'll grow into it.

    There are some great DIY bracelet ideas now that look great but only cost a couple bucks and a few minutes to make. Bonus: it feels pretty cool to wear something you've made.

  • Necklaces: they can be centerpieces, statement, or simple. Ranging from tight around the neck to grazing the belly button. But be careful, style and size can make or break the outfit.

    Length: if you're buying a necklace for a certain top/dress, keep in mind where the top starts. You don't want a necklace that's not long or short enough and falls down your neck.

    A shorter style can show off pronounced collar bones while a longer one lengthens your frame. But, again, make sure it goes with what you're wearing. You don't want it to interfere with the clothing if it falls at an awkward length.

  • (cont.)
    Style is, of course, important, too. A busy blouse with a flashy necklace can become over-styled quickly—even if they go together. If your clothing is the centerpiece, pick a smaller, simpler necklace. However, big and bright necklaces have their own place, too. Pair them with a plainer outfit and it'll be spiced up in seconds.

  • Earrings: they have the ability to frame the face and make a subtle yet noticeable difference.

    Diamonds: they can take your outfit from "meh" to "hey". Bigger ones can look super glam or nice n classy and smaller ones are very versatile.

    Pearls: if you're looking for something chic, look no further. Pearls are classy and mature. Big or small, they'll radiate sophistication.

  • Alright, that's it! If you liked this tutorial please give it a thumbs-up and feel free to save. Let me know in the comments any other tutorials or tips you'd like me to post :)
