When it comes to jewellery and fashion, you’ll hear a lot about timeless vs. trendy items. Sometimes trendy might be in fashion for a year or a season, but then it will fade out of fashion and if it is worn past its expiration date it can look strange and dated. However, timeless clothing, accessories and jewellery will always look elegant and can be worn no matter the year. A timeless design captures something that looks classy and sophisticated and will never go out of style.
When you invest in a piece of timeless jewellery, you can be sure that you are choosing something that will always look good on you and will be suitable for any occasion. It is worth paying a little more for these items, because they will last for a long time and they will be worn again and again. A piece of timeless jewellery is an investment and because it never goes out of style, it is something that you can pass down to your children and grandchildren.
So what is it that makes something timeless? Any type of jewellery can be timeless, whether it is earrings, charm bracelets, necklaces or rings. The elements that make something timeless are in the design and the look of the piece. Let’s take a look at some of the things that make jewellery timeless.
Simplicity is Key
A timeless piece of jewellery should be simple, rather than overly complicated. If it is too ornate or elaborate there is a risk that the decorations will go out of style and will look dated in future years. If the jewellery is simple with clean lines there is a better chance that it will stay in fashion for a long time.
Examples of simple and elegant jewellery that is timeless includes basic diamond stud earrings, gold necklaces, charm bracelets, diamond tennis bracelets and gold rings. These designs have been worn for many years and they will continue to be fashionable and stylish.
Versatility is Important
When something is timeless, that also means that it is flexible and versatile enough to be worn for a multitude of seasons and occasions. When it comes to clothing, an example of a versatile and timeless item would be a little black dress, a classic trench coat or a great pair of well-fitting blue jeans. When it comes to jewellery, this is an accessory that can be worn with a range of outfits to a number of different occasions.
For example, a classic pair of stud earrings can look great with a little black dress for a very elegant and sophisticated look, but they can also be worn with a blouse and a skirt to the office. The more versatile your jewellery is, the more often you will be able to wear it.
Choose Iconic Fashion Names
If your jewellery pieces are made by one of the big names in jewellery, such as Tiffany, Bvlgari, Piaget, Cartier and other major brands, it will likely be a timeless piece. These brands are famous because they produce jewellery of a very high quality and these pieces are likely to be timeless and still fashionable many years from now. For example, Cartier jewellery has been around since 1860 and the quality and style means that the original pieces are still very much coveted and look stylish and elegant to this day.
Of course, not everyone can afford to buy expensive brand name designer jewellery that is made by major fashion names such as Tiffany, Piaget and Cartier. Since this jewellery is so sought after, it is very expensive. If you have a smaller budget, take a look at the styles of these famous jewellers and then find budget options that are made in similar styles.
It Looks Good on You
Of course, one of the most important parts of choosing jewellery is to select something that suits your personal style and looks good on you. It could be a beautiful piece of timeless jewellery, but if it doesn’t look good on you – then you will be unlikely to wear it. Take the time to find something that really suits your personal style and looks amazing on you – so that you will be sure to wear it again many times.
