Whether it’s homemade cookies that are always a hit with your friends, or delightful interior decorating, we all want to be known for something. From talents to designs and work accolades to physical fitness, there is a certain pride that comes from being recognized. However, one of the best ways to gain recognition is with jewelry. By claiming a signature piece as your own, you’ll become known for your fashion sense and universal poise. In fact, you might even inspire a trend. To determine what your signature piece should be and how to implement it, read on.
1) How Often
Determining how often you’ll wear a piece of jewelry is the first step in creating a signature look. If you plan on wearing a piece of jewelry less than three times a week, then it’s not a signature piece; it is merely yet another piece in your collection. Determining the number of times you’ll wear a piece of jewelry in any given week requires brutal honesty and a truthful evaluation of your lifestyle. Reporting to an office for five days a week will require a different signature piece than staying at home with the kids. Of course, personal style must be considered as well. Are you loud and bold, or quiet and understated? Different personalities require different gemstones.
Once you’ve determined how often you’ll wear a piece, it’s time to evaluate style. As a rule of thumb, signature jewelry pieces are often quite understated. Generally, this is because the piece is worn with great frequency. Because the piece is worn often, it’s critical to choose an item that is versatile and can work in any situation. But of course, personal preference is important as well. If you’re style is bold, opt for a piece like the Noble Agate Pendant. The hues of the pendant are neutral and work with any outfit, but the design is bold and on trend. For a quieter or more subdued signature piece, try the Tahitian Pearl Pendant. Because pearls are timeless and the shape is elegant, the pendant creates a dignified look.
Once you’ve established the right piece and correct style for your signature piece, it is time to wear the piece fearlessly. When creating a signature look, it’s important to remember that the jewelry is supposed to be worn frequently. Never feel like an “outfit repeater” when wearing your signature piece. You are a style visionary.
