How to Use Jewelry to Compliment a Casual Look

Tuesday, July 25, 2023

Jewelry is not only for formal occasions. You can also use it to spice up your everyday outfits and express your personality. But how do you choose the right pieces that match your style and mood? Here are some tips on how to use jewelry to compliment a casual look.

## 1. Play with colors

One of the easiest ways to create a harmonious look is to use the color wheel as your guide. You can find interesting combinations that will make your outfit pop. For example, you can use complementary colors, such as blue and orange, or analogous colors, such as green and yellow, to create contrast and balance. You can also use triadic colors, such as purple, orange and green, or tetradic colors, such as red, yellow, blue and green, to create a vibrant and dynamic look.

You can also match the hue and saturation of your jewelry with your clothes. If you are wearing muted tones, go for jewelry that has the same level of brightness and intensity. If you are wearing bright colors, you can opt for jewelry that has more sparkle and shine.

## 2. Coordinate with your neckline

Another important factor to consider is the shape of your neckline. You want your necklace to complement your top or dress, not clash with it. A good rule of thumb is to have your necklace end a few inches above where your neckline starts. This way, you can avoid overcrowding or overlapping.

You can also follow the shape of your neckline with your necklace. For example, if you are wearing a V-neck, you can choose a pendant or a Y-shaped necklace that mimics the V shape. If you are wearing a round neck, you can go for a choker or a collar necklace that hugs your neck. If you are wearing a boat neck or an off-shoulder top, you can opt for a long necklace that adds some length and movement.

## 3. Mix and match

Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles and trends of jewelry. You can mix and match different pieces to create a unique and fun look. For example, you can layer different lengths, shapes, colors and textures of necklaces, rings and bangles to add some depth and dimension to your outfit. You can also mix metals, such as gold and silver, or materials, such as leather and beads, to create some contrast and interest.

You can also pair jewelry pieces that you don't usually wear with the ones you generally wear to invigorate the look and make use of rarely used jewelry. For example, you can wear a statement ring with your everyday studs, or a chunky bracelet with your delicate watch.

## 4. Choose meaningful pieces

Jewelry is not only a fashion accessory, but also a way to express yourself and tell a story. You can choose pieces that have some meaning or significance for you, such as your birthstone, your zodiac sign, your initials or a symbol that represents something important to you. You can also choose pieces that remind you of someone special, such as a gift from a loved one, a family heirloom or a souvenir from a trip.

Choosing meaningful pieces will not only make you feel good, but also add some personality and charm to your look. You can also use them as conversation starters and share your stories with others.

## 5. Stick to classic pieces

If you are not sure what to wear or how to accessorize, you can always rely on classic pieces that never go out of style. These are the pieces that are versatile, timeless and elegant. They can go with any outfit and any occasion.

Some examples of classic pieces are pearl earrings, diamond studs, simple hoops, solitaire pendants, tennis bracelets, chain necklaces and cufflinks. These pieces are easy to wear and match with anything. They can also elevate any look from casual to chic.

In Arizona, the Apaches had made several raids on one particular settlement. After these raids, the military and some volunteers banded together and followed the tracks of the stolen cattle back to where the Apaches lived. At dawn, they attacked. The Apaches were completely surprised and outnumbered in the attack. About two-thirds of the Apache warriors were killed by the first volley of shots. The rest of the Apache warriors retreated. As they were almost completely surrounded, the only place for them to go was to the edge of a cliff. Rather than die at the hands of a white man, these last warriors chose death by leaping over the cliff's edge. The apache women of those who had died gathered at the base of the cliff, and for a moon they wept for their dead. They mourned, not only because their warriors had all died, but also because the fighting spirit of the Apaches had died with them. Their sadness was so great that the Great Spirit encased the tears of the Apache women into black stones we now call apache tears.

Color grading a white diamond is really about the absence of color. Any hint of color lowers the value of the diamond, and the stronger the color, the lower the gem's worth. The color grading scale established by GIA, and recognized around the world, has letter grades to describe the increasing presence of color.
