Wear your jewelry in winter
Here we are!
The weather is getting chilly and in a blink of an eye, we'll bundle up in more and more layers to stay warm.
And that's when it happens!
With our scarves, hats, gloves, coats, parkas... we are quite disappearing under the layered clothing we've to pull on. Depending on how cold we may feel, we sometimes barely have our ears visible.
You may ask yourself if it's worth to wear jewelry in winter. The answer is yes, ABSOLUTLY! Wearing your jewelry as a treat to yourself takes all its sense at that point.
Let's take a tour on the best way to make the most of your jewelry in winter.
Earrings : Studs and round shaped pendant earrings will be your best friends.
For your everyday go-to earrings the stud earrings are perfect. Directly placed on your earlobe, they are scarf friendly.
Pendant earrings are a good option, as long as you avoid any sharp points, at the end of the earrings as it could easily get caught on your scarf or sweater, particularly with a turtleneck.
Your ears are probably one of the first parts of your body that people can see in winter. So you may decide to make your earrings the center of attention, with a bold style.
In this case, trendy pendant earrings or large hoop earrings might be a good choice.
Necklaces : Focus on length rather than layering
If you choose a shorter necklace, you can opt for large and big pieces. They will be less likely to get lost in the thickness of sweaters and other layers we put on in winter.
Bracelets : Let's play with sizes and styles
As we wear longer sleeves, bracelets with large chain and big pearls are worth showing off in winter.
You can wear them over your sleeves for a city chic style.
You can also layer chain, gems and/or pearls bracelets as you pleased.
Rings : Anything but stacked or prong setting rings
One thing to keep in mind: with the cold weather your fingers tend to constrict. Make sure your rings fit properly as you are more likely to loose them, especially when you take off your gloves, if you are wearing them.
Avoid rings with stones set in claws, as they tend to get caught in woolens, scarves, and even the lining inside gloves. In addition to the risk of damaging your woolens, you may also risk losing the stones of your ring, the claws may be weakened following a snagging.
Choose wide, flat rings or rings with stones completely surrounded by metal, also known as bezel-setting rings.
You can't help it, you like wearing large, big rings even in winter?
I have a tip for you. Turn the top of the ring towards the palm of your hand. This tip takes advantage of a technical detail of glove making.
The length of the gap between each finger of a glove is about 6 mm shorter in the front than in the back.
See the all explanation in the video below.
Overall, since winter wardrobe are often displayed with darken colors, don't hesitate to play with colors while choosing your jewelry in winter, particularly if they include pearls or gems.
I will talk longer about colored pearls in a coming blog.
Take care of yourselves until then.
