A Woman's Guide to Investing in Fundamental Jewelry Pieces - Part - 3

A good chain, whether a link or flat chain, completes a shirt or dress. A choker length chain displays better when worn with a scoop, tank or open neck shirt. If you choose a longer chain, you have the option of adding a ring to one of the links so you could adjust the length by wearing it at a shorter length. From one chain you can create two different lengths. With a longer chain, you can also add a pendant. If your chain is very long, you can wrap it around your neck once or twice.

If you see a design for a chain that you really like, you may wish to invest in two of the same chains. A shorter one for everyday and a longer one for special occasions. You could also wear the two together for two different looks.

There are so many unique chains on the market. If you you are a traveller, you may see something quite unusual on one of your journeys. As an example, if you travel to the Middle East, the gold is 24kt and has a rich color, the designs for chains are extraordinary. Don't miss out on an opportunity to purchase a chain if do see a spectacular one on one of your travels, you may regret later on not buying it. One of my customers, while she was single travelled a lot. One summer she spent travelling through Europe and discovered the beautiful jewelry of Florence, Italy. She saw a beautiful chain and while it was very affordable, she was undecided about purchasing it since she didn't want to part with all her cash. Fast forward several years and today she REGRETS that she didn't buy it. "I haven't seen a chain like it since, why was I so narrow minded", says Caroline.

You may wish to invest in a simple chain for everyday and a more decorative one for special occasions.

If you are a connoisseur of vintage/antique jewelry you may choose a very unique, handmade piece. There is something to be said about vintage jewelry--you do not see these pieces worn every day on the average person.

Consider your lifestyle, look through your wardrobe and then decide which chain would best suit you.

A Woman's Guide to Investing in Fundamental Jewelry Pieces - Part 1

Gone With the Wind, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Casablanca, The King and I are a few of the most cherished and beloved classic movies of all time.

The classics, whether they are movies or books, have a universal commonality—they stand the test of time and live on from generation to generation, just like a classic piece of jewelry.

Jewelry trends, like the change of seasons, come and go; however, the eight classic fundamentals are signature pieces that are the most functional, practical, have stood the test of time, can be handed down from generation to generation, will complete and compliment all outfits, but most importantly do not have to be updated or replaced—they are the true and timeless classics.

Pearl and diamond stud earrings can be worn every day and will compliment everything in your wardrobe because they are both neutral color gems—whether you wear them to work, with your favorite pair of jeans or even hit the dance floor with them they will look elegant and classy. It does not matter what size they are, even the smallest diamond will stand out as long as you purchase a quality pair.

One of our customers, Gemma purchased her first pair of diamond stud earrings. In the work force for only a year and with a limited budget, quality not size was a priority for her. She purchased a 5 pt. VVS1 diamond stud pair of earrings. When she wears them, they have so much sparkle because they are a quality stone. This is why size should not be a priority since quality makes up for that.

Diamond and pearl earrings are also the building blocks for add-ons in the future. With pearl earrings, you can eventually acquire a pearl necklace, bracelet and ring. With a diamond solitaire pair of earrings, you can add a small solitaire diamond pendant, or if you like to play tennis, a matching tennis bracelet - tennis anyone :)
