Classic Jewelry Pieces Every Fashion Girl Should Own

As fun as it is to experiment with the latest trends, there’s something to be said about the classics that we return to time and time again. From our clothing to accessories, it’s much easier to justify a significant spend on something timeless because you know you’ll have it in your wardrobe forever (and wear it myriad ways year after year). Jewelry is one of those categories that often requires a lot of rationalization, particularly if you’re investing in expensive pieces. Diamonds, gemstones and precious metals come at a serious cost and, for most, splurging on a trendy style is not always super feasible or even practical. So, when shopping for a new piece of jewelry, the classics are typically the way to go.

Whether you’re the type to pile on the jewelry or pare it back to just the essentials, classic pieces will work for you regardless. Even if you tend bold and eccentric with your baubles, it’s impossible to resist a versatile pair of classic studs, refined rings or a delicate necklace as they complement and balance out even the most brazen of styles. While each of these trinkets is more than enough for dainty tastes on a daily basis, they’re just as remarkable when layered with statement pieces and can actually ground a more experimental look.

While simple in design, classic jewelry hardly reads boring. In fact, subtler styles are transformative for any outfit, whether you’re polishing up for work, elevating basics or in need of a few glimmering accents for an occasion or a night out. The result is always sophisticated and you can always build upon these essentials with trendier pieces.

Timeless jewelry is also perfect for gift-giving. We know all too well that some tastes can be, um, difficult to please. So why risk it? A sleek hoop earring or stackable ring will always hit the mark no matter who you are catering to.

And while jewelry is certainly one of the most expensive categories you’ll ever shop for, contemporary and demi-fine jewelry brands are putting out well-made options at more attainable price points these days. This means timeless, quality jewelry can be had by all (so there are literally no excuses for counting yourself out of the investment jewelry game).
