Whether you have Marie Kondo’d your closet or jumped on the capsule wardrobe trend, it is undeniable we are living in a moment of paring down. Naturally, applying the same concept to your jewelry will help you to build a collection of timeless basics that easily pair with any event or outfit. A capsule jewelry collection built of essential pieces guarantees you are ready for a weekend trip to a nice restaurant, a night at the ballet, or a weekend at the beach.
Creating a capsule of jewelry also helps with getting your collection down to a manageable size. While a jewelry capsule is comprised of basics, it does not need to be boring. Paring down your options is less about creating simplicity and more about emphasizing pieces that you know and love. Returning to staple pieces again and again because they make you feel good and complement anything in your closet.
Here’s a look at our must-haves for your capsule jewelry wardrobe:
1. Diamond Studs
Diamond stud earrings are a great every day jewelry piece that can be dressed up or down and are an absolute must for your jewelry capsule. These simple earrings pair equally well with jeans or a formal gown. While we recommend real diamonds for your studs, the size and setting are entirely up to your personal style. These studs should be striking but not over-the-top. Whether you prefer the cluster look or striking solitaires, there are a variety of options to complement your wardrobe. We recommend staying with a classic look that you will never grow tired of when selecting your diamond studs.
