JEWELLERY

GLITTERS & SPARKLES

eauty is not always short-

lived. And beautiful jewellery

is sure to stand the test of

time. Most women will agree

that a stunning piece of

jewellery is not just an accessory to be

worn occasionally, but something to be

appreciated and treasured forever.

Indeed, of all the things that women

adorn, nothing tells a story quite like

jewellery does. It’s just like making

beautiful memories — the ones that

come in different forms, from smaller,

day-to-day reminiscences to significant

milestones. Jewellery should be as varied

as our memories, offering an extensive

range from casual, elegant pieces to

stand-out lavish designs.

As American actress and jewellery

designer Kristin Cavallari (in picture)

reveals, a piece of jewellery can make or

break an outfit.

“It can be a disaster if you have too

much on. However, you can make an

outfit with a statement necklace and a

simple dress,” she says. “Chokers are a

huge trend right now, and I think they’re

so sexy.”

Mix, don’t match

Cavallari says the mistake women

always make with jewellery is wearing

everything at the same time: earrings,

necklace, bracelets and rings. “I never do

all four. The maximum is three. Neither do

I try to match my jewellery to my clothing

at all times. I don’t like everything to be

too perfect.”

Psychiatrists say earrings, bracelets and

rings are all vital ways of self-expression,

so the jewellery you wear reveals your

personality. If you really want to find out

what personality type you are, you should

examine your most frequently worn

items. Your favourite piece of jewellery

could be a dead giveaway.

For instance, if your favourite is a

bracelet, you are vivacious and dynamic

and have a great deal of determination.

It’s always a relief when the biggest trends in fashion are also enduring classics.

From earrings and lockets to bracelets and pearls, here are some timeless finds

that will never go out of style

BY KRITA COELHO

If it’s earrings you love, you’re probably

a proud and secretly bold person who

doesn’t want to get lost in the crowd.

If you wear religious symbols, you’re

idealistic, sincere, extremely loyal and

dependable. Choosing a ring over other

pieces of jewellery shows you’re probably

a level-headed and practical individual.

Now, while it’s great to have a jewellery

box overflowing with the good stuff,

chances are you don’t wear nor know

what half the pieces are. The best forms

of jewellery are those that can be matched

with different wardrobes. However,

jewellery in any form should also convey

your personal, signature style.

Let’s say you’re getting dressed for

the day and have no time or motivation

to put together a perfectly styled outfit.

Instead of begrudgingly searching for

inspiration, turn instead to your jewellery

box, the contents of which can promptly

elevate the simplest of outfits. All the

more reason why it’s crucial to opt for

quality rather than quantity and choose

pieces that will never go out of style.
