Perhaps, like us, you knew very early on in life that you were sparkle obsessed or maybe you were a late bling bloomer. No matter what luminous life cycle you find yourself in, it always helps to get top tips on which accessories to wear with what, how to make your jewelry work for you and which styles suit you best. It’s even better when the tips come from bona fide jewelry designers!

STACK YOUR RINGS

This tip is the G.O.A.T. because we love nothing more than piling on jewelry. Thankfully you can easily do that with affordable luxury accessories. It works especially well with rings, allowing you to explore a number of new and varied looks with the same selection. Katy Valentine suggests wearing several rings together to create a richer expression of color and beauty. It doesn’t end there! If you’re blessed with multiple piercings, there’s nothing stopping you from applying the same idea to your earrings.

LAYER IT UP

Take the obsession up a notch and layer your bangles, bracelets and necklaces! Throw together your delicate cuffs or wear them bold and proud. Experiment with contrasting necklace lengths to jazz up an ordinary outfit like Mayol loves to do. If you’re too nervous about making a faux pas, grab a necklace that’s already layered and take the hassle out of the equation.

STAPLE OR STATEMENT? WHEN TO WEAR WHAT

When we asked Shelly Dahari for jewelry advice, she pointed us to her versatile White Shell Necklace-Bracelet. Why? Because it goes beautifully with a pantsuit for the office and just as perfectly with a cocktail dress. You can also get plenty of mileage out of it as a necklace and a bracelet, making it a great example of essential demi-fine jewelry. Now statement pieces on the other hand should be worn more selectively as they tend to steal the limelight from your outfit. So, if you want to elevate a plain t-shirt and jeans or make that little black dress pop, then your bet is on something flamboyant and distinctive.
