The history of statement jewelry goes a long way to ancient Egypt and Romans. The Africans loved the danglers, thick cylindrical rings, bib or collar necklace and big cuffs & bangles. While the Romans were into big, huge stone rings. In the mainstream fashion industry, it was Coco Chanel who brought back statement in trend bejeweling her costumes with it. During the 30's and 40's it prevailed on stacking up using gold, pearls and silver. In the 50's it was more about throwing in some charm bracelets of stones, diamonds and crystals. The intention behind was to bring out the madness in a woman and to break the chains of normalcy.
In the modern era, it's more about colorful, bold and literally making a statement piece. What I remember is that for us it made a real comeback in the last 6 years and have made their way through the global fashion. Working well with every occasion, statement jewel pieces instantly hike look of the attire and glam you up. It began with runway models and gradually made way to the street and parties. It's a magic how one statement jewel can elevate your look effortlessly, glamourizing you with minimal work.
Statement jewelry define who you are and who you want to be. Admit it or not but you always accessorize yourself according to your personality traits. Your style will always define real you. Statement jewelry does show how bold enough you are to try new things in life and how easy are you with transition.
The magic of statement jewels is that it makes an ordinary outfit an extraordinary one. They allow you to break the mundane and monotony with unique identity, confidence and quirk. Dainty danglers, funky chains, bold and beautiful necklaces and many such bring about a grandeur experience and make you turn heads wherever you step in. One of the easiest ways to change the look of your daily wardrobe is to add up jewels. Be artistic and don't shy away from experimenting with them. Because we know, without jewelry our best of wardrobe can fall flat and lose its charm.
So, girls, don't be afraid to try on new things and bold accessories because when you look good you feel good 🙂
Few rules to swear by
First on first is the rule is to select the perfect size according to the outfit. If you are already wearing a goody or heavy embroided outfit, please avoid baubles and big necklaces. Instead go for studs- a good circular mideival size would look perfect.
Second, do not over accessories. Let it be one piece at a time. Blending shoulder dusters with layered or big neckpiece would be dramatic and we're not on a drama runway, right?
Play with colors but don't be a rainbow. The color of your statement jewel plays a major role. Don't wear a colorful piece with a multi colored outfit. Go for pastels or light colored in that case. Also, the 'goes with everything' gold and silver won't work with colorful attire.
Less is more: Apply this rule with make-up. Let your jewelry do its business and keep face painting away. Wear nude base with decent lip color and you'll be a magic.
